He's a magician!

I would recommend Dr. Handel to anyone interested in breast explanation and a breast lift. He is truly a skilled, professional and an extremely knowledgable and top notch plastic surgeon. I'm thrilled with my results and I'm only 3 weeks post op! His staff is beyond amazing and I was well taken care of and my results are gorgeous. Thank you Dr. Handel, Cristina and Nina! You are the best!

Wonderful Surgeon!!

I highly recommend Dr. Handel to anyone who is considering having plastic surgery. Dr. Handel did my breast augmentation. During my initial consult Dr. Handel and his lovely office staff were WONDERFUL about answering all of my questions and helping me to select the size and type of implant that I wanted. They spent a lot of time with me and I greatly appreciate not being rushed through the process (this is, after all, my boobs we are talking about!!) On the day of surgery Dr. Handel came in and talked to me again – walking me through what was going on and making sure I was comfortable and had all of my questions answered. The surgery went great, everything ran smoothly, the nurses, techs and anesthesiologist were all friendly and efficient. After the surgery was completed and I went home I was a little sick from the anesthesia. One call to Dr. Handel’s efficient staff was all it took to get me a prescription that got rid of the nausea immediately. All of my follow up visits were easy to schedule and I NEVER had to wait more than 5 minutes to see the doctor. I loathe waiting in doctors’ offices past my appointment time; it is one of my biggest pet peeves. So it really means a lot to me that Dr. Handel and his staff have never wasted my time or made me wait. Most important (of course) are the results. My breasts look AMAZING. Dr. Handel tried two different implant sizes during surgery to see which one would get me the results I want. The first was too big for my body and so he ended up going with the smaller ones (before surgery I had requested that the size fit my body). He was able to envision and create exactly what I wanted based on my descriptions to him. The size, shape and nipple placement are PERFECT! The incision is right in the crease under my breasts. Dr. Handel did such a careful job closing the incision that I will barely have a scar. Dr. Handel gave me my dream breasts!!
