Dr. Alan S Harmatz has the following 1 specialty
- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

Misdiagnosis cost me $ and 5 additional surgeries in one year. Now I am left with a mis-shapen, ugly chest. All he said at my last appointment was, "well, they could be bigger, at least they're not smaller" I was never interested in size, just a normal look, which I'll never have. My other doctor's have even remarked on how surprised they were that the results are so uneven, and asked if I wanted a second opinion.
Dr. Harmatz is one of the most gentle doctors I've ever had. I experienced a breast implant rupture from a fall. He was very skilled at putting in new implants and I felt really safe with him. One of the new implants leaked and he fought with the company to get me a new one AND made sure that I did not have to pay for the OR, anesthesia and he did not charge me a fee. How often does that happen?
I was 36 years old and went to Alan Harmatz for, what I was told by several medical people, was a fairly straight forward procedure. I had a small section of skin that had "tethered" in my neck from a thyroidectomy. He BOTCHED it. Not only is the scar much larger and now very visible (was not before) but it didn't heal right. His response "well this happens." Shortly after my surgery I find out he moved to Lewiston. I would NOT recommend him for any surgery. Sloppy.
