Ratings for Dr. David A. Hecht
I had a complicated revision rhinoplasty/septoplasty and Dr. Hecht did a great job. It was not an easy surgery, but Dr. Hecht showed great attention to detail and I came out looking like a million bucks! Dr. Hecht is highly skilled. His office did my consultation and surgery, and handled my insurance issues on very short notice. My surgery was scheduled a week from the day I first called, while other doctors had turned me away. Highly recommend Dr. Hecht and his office!
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Hecht for several years and I feel very lucky to be under his care. His staff is simply incredible, very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The entire team worked around my schedule to book a blepharoplasty surgery (upper eyelids), which was done just 6 weeks ago; and I’m very happy with the results! I look now much younger, rested and natural. I’m a doctor myself and have seen many various postoperative situations, so I was very realistic about the procedure and recovery expectations. As far as the actual surgery, it was completed at Dr. Hecht’s office with local anesthesia only… it was truly painless and quick! Amazing and very positive experience! The recovery process went really well with no painkillers required, no swelling or bruising on my face. Simply excellent ! Dr. Hecht was very caring after the procedure with phone calls and follow ups. I was out socializing 3 days later and back at work the following week ! He did an amazing cosmetic work and I really feel he is a true artist in his profession. I’m honored to be his patient and I feel Dr. Hecht is the best facial plastic surgeon anyone can find. I completely trust him. Forever grateful, B.R

This is the story of how Dr. Hecht ruined my nose for my lifetime... My breathing is still compromised after all these corrective attempts. Had surgery in june 2008. Immediately after splint was taken off there were 3 irregularities on my right side, one was VERY obvious was part of the ear graft he used and was sticking out (protruding out of the skin) two, was the entire graft you could see the outline (my skin is thin which I have discussed with current surgeons that he should not have done this) Three, irregularity was a dip just above my tip that was NOT there before surgery ( he built up my tip and didnt fill in the area in bet the graft and my tip. . 6 weeks later he TRIED to fix it IN HIS OFFICE because he didnt want to upset his reputation by taking me back to the hospital and put me under anethesia and he said that I would have to pay for it In his office, during this 2nd attempt his assistant (Veronica) had to hold me down due to the pain, I was sweating and shaking from the pain, he injected me with 12 shots in my nose VERY PAINFUL.After the tape came off the irregularities were still there!!. My nose looked worse because the swelling was coming down from the first surgery. 2 months later, a 3rd attempt was made to correct, he tried to "needle" the cartlidge,that was still sticking out, down. Didnt' work. 4th time he took me in to the hospital again (on my expense, asked him to meet me half way and wouldn't). he then took out only half the graft he put in from my ear in the first surgery which created a dent about as wide as a pencil, and created two new bumps that have never gone away. I will send anyone pics to see his hack job...... He then tried to calm down the bump by using steroid injections ( this was the 5 th attempt to correct) and thinned my skin so bad that I have a permanent dermal scar. Prioir to surgery, I asked him if he felt comfortable doing this procedure, and he said yes, Obviously a doctor having to try 5 times to correct it was not capable nor experienced to take on my nose. It was completely unethical for him to do what he did. What kind of doctor tries 5 times and makes it worse. he should have refered me to a doctor that could perform this surgery. Today every doctor that I have seen (3 top ones in LA , One in TX One in NH) says that he performed below the standard of care. If you would like to know more details contact me Aztrigal@gmail.com . i can supply you with photos. the photos he takes at his office or no detailed enough. I have proof. This entry is NOT an exageration of what transpired. I am a middle age college educated profesional woman, not someone just trying to ruin his reputation from a surgery ( realizing that outcomes are not always perfect) however Dr. Hecht should have realized that he was not capable of doing this procedure. Other Doctors explain to me in detail what should have been doen. I can share that with you if you want to contact me.
