Reviews

Breast Reduction

★★★★★
5 5 1
I am a 68 year old woman who suffered from shoulder and neck pain for over 30 years. I had always been afraid of getting a breast reduction due to fear of strong pain meds and the recovery time. I finally went to Dr. Hess who assured me I would be able to handle any discomfort with Tylenol. And, that worked great because the pain wasn't anywhere near as bad as I thought it would be. Tylenol for 3 days and that was it. I am a very active horseback rider and Dr. Hess understood how important it was to me to have small breasts, not only to relieve neck/shoulder pain, but to make it easier to ride my horses a lot of miles. The surgery was a breeze and I was back on my horses 12 days post-op. Shoulder and neck pain is virtually gone! I am thrilled to have gone from an F cup to a B. I highly recommend Dr. Hess for this procedure as he was very caring and concerned about giving me what "I" wanted.

A+++++ experience!

My experience with Dr. Hess and his office was honestly the best I could ever have wanted! Everyone at his office is welcoming and courteous, and of course he is an absolute pleasure to work with! Everything was so straightforward, from the consult to the pre-surgical appt, and my surgery went so smoothly. I couldn't be happier with my new C cup, lifted breasts!! Dr. Hess is honest and trustworthy. I would go back to him in a heartbeat for any plastic surgery procedures. A+++++ experience!

True Professional with Gifted Hands

I had the most amazing experience with Dr. Hess, he is a true professional with gifted hands. Dr. Hess performed a face-lift along with upper and lower lids. The outcome, which to date is only one month, and is greater than my expectations. Dr. Hess is passionate about his work and a true perfectionist. A few days ago, after my procedure, I got a new haircut, and my friends and acquaintance said, "Wow, I love your new hair style, it has taken 10 years off your looks." I only smiled and said thank you. Dr. Hess has wonderful bedside manners and his office staff is friendly.

Recovery was easy and fast
