I have researched many surgeons in Fairfield and Westchester counties and have had cosmetic surgery with two other plastic surgeons in this area and I am certain that Dr. Kleinman is the best doctor around. Even after my second breast augmentation (with other surgeons) I was not satisfied with the shape of my breasts. There was rippling that I had to hide in the summertime and just an overall fake look about them. After having another procedure (vaser lipo which turned out great!) with Dr. Kleinman I knew that he was the one that could finally get it right. I asked his opinion on my breasts and he could see right away what was going wrong and how to fix them. Dr. Kleinman's office staff are friendly, professional, sensitive and very respectful and they really all work together to help you pin point the results you want and offer support throughout the whole process. Dr. Kleinmans nurse worked really hard with me and Dr. Kleinman to decide on and find the best possible size and shape of implant. Dr. Kleinman is an absolute "Perfectionist", is extremely thorough in every aspect of the surgery and all your office visits and is a pure gentleman when it comes to his conduct and bedside manner. Now that I know Dr..Kleinman and his team I feel like I have found my most trusted advisors in all my future cosmetic needs.
Aware that all my exercising and dieting was not helping with my “love handles” and caesarian scar, I investigated every new procedure for contouring and removing fat during the past least 5 years. I thoroughly researched each new procedure presented on the news, the internet or mentioned by friends. I’ve seen numerous doctors and without hesitation, chose Dr. Kleinman. My decision was based on two factors, honesty and merit. Dr. Kleinman was honest enough to tell me what he couldn't do and he took time to explain the many options available. Through his extensive knowledge and experience with various methods, he led me to one that would produce the best results for me. He listened to my needs and worries and considered them. My surgery was done efficiently. Recovery and healing have been exactly as he told me it would be. Dr. Kleinman's academic history and professional status were important factors to me. He has clearly learned his trade and has the surgical skills and interpersonal manner that make him an excellent practicioner. He studied at fist rate schools and was elected president of the New York State Society of Plastic Surgeons for 2010 and this endorsement was also significant. His offices are spotlessly clean. Noelais a well informed medical assistant to him and is sensitive and re-assuring. Erika is efficiently on top of appointments and record-keeping.
I am in good shape, quite fit and a good weight but I had saddlebags the would not budge no matter how much I worked out. I really did not want or need to loose any weight but the area at the top of my thighs on the sides and the back really bugged me. I had heard about Vaser Lipo and went to see Dr. Kleinman. He was extremely detailed and professional and worked closely with me to explain what he was going to do and how it would make a difference. The procedure was performed in Dr. Kleinmans plush surgery room right in his office and I was in and out within a few hours. The results are fantastic. I went down a whole jean size just by removing the bulge on my thighs!
I finally made the decision to get lipo on my upper arms. After going through years of wearing blouses and shirts with sleeves, in the summer to hide my upper arms, I thought that now was the time to act. The decision was the easy part. The hard part was finding a reputable, plastic surgeon. So I did my due diligence and researched many plastic surgeons and narrowed it down to two. The first surgeon I meet with was Dr. Kleinman. After spending, I would say a good 45 minutes with him talking and answering my questions, he examined me and informed me that I would be a good candidate for the surgery. I felt comfortable enough to go a head and have Dr.Kleinman perform the procedure. I cancelled the second appointment. Dr. Kleinman explained the pros and cons of the surgery. He did indicate that there was a possibility that I would have to have a second surgery to remove the excess skin, but that decision would take place more or less, after a year, when the healing process would be complete. Here I am 6 months later and my arms are looking better everyday. I have been working out my upper arms and have lost several inches, giving me more confidence when I wear my sleeveless tops. It seems like I will not be having the surgery to remove the excess skin, b/c there isn't any. The one regret that I do have is not getting it done earlier.
For several years I've contemplated having Lipo on my upper arms. I've researched close to a dozen doctors and narrowed it down to two doctors, of course Dr. Kleinman being one of the two. Before my scheduled appointment, I wrote down all of my questions and considered myself ready, nervous nonetheless, but ready. Upon arriving at the office I was met by Janet, office manager, who made me feel very much at ease. During the consultation, Dr. Kleinman answered all of my questions without me even asking. He explained the pro and con's and did not sugar coat anything. I decided that I was comfortable with Dr. Kleinman's track record, and of course credentials and certifications, and I would have him perform the surgery. On the day of the surgery, Dr. Kleinman was assisted by his nurse and beautiful wife Noela, who stood by my side through the whole procedure. Since I was under local anesthesia, I was semi awake and able to carry on a conversation. I was amazed by the fact that I did not feel any pain; Noela and Dr. Kleinman kept me informed what was going on during the procedure. I was in and out of Dr. Kleinman's office within a few hours and thereafter had minimal discomfort. Amazingly enough I slept like a baby that night. It took approximately less than two weeks for the swelling to go down, and each and every day my upper arms were getting smaller and tighter. Here I am six weeks later and I couldn't be happier with the procedure and wish I would have done it sooner.
I am a 27 year old female who is nearly 3 weeks into having Vaser Lipo of the back (bra rolls). For the most part, I consider myself to be in good health and in decent shape. Over the past 6 years, I have been dedicated to dieting and exercising nearly 4 to 5 times a week, yet I still could never mange to get my back into shape. I never had a problem with the way I looked in front of a mirror, it's only when I would turn to the side that you could see all the back bulges (throwing my silhouette completely off) . It was even so bad that I needed to buy a size 11 dress when everywhere else on my body was a size 8!..
I just wanted to write you to let you know how happy I am that I chose your practice to help me with my cosmetic surgery. I had been struggling with the weight on my lower abdomen and my torso area for years. Four pregnancies and four c-sections did not help matters. Although I had maintained close to my weight, I tended to gain and retain more fat in that middle area. The procedure was quick and took only a couple of hours in the office. Although Noela had mentioned I would not remember much of the surgery, I clearly remember feeling comforted during the surgery and feeling safe and at ease. I had full confidence in Dr. Kleinman. I was able to go back to work the next day (even though Noela had suggested I stay home) because I felt fine. I was slightly sore but it felt more like having had a rigorous workout with the muscle soreness that follows. I truly love how I look and feel. Because of that I am much happier. As my husband puts it "If mom is happy; everyone is happy."
It is my pleasure to contribute my recommendation to your office. You are all terrific! Thanks again for everything. I am 53 years old and at an age where lumps and bumps stubbornly appear in undesirable places. I still consider myself to be an attractive woman but my clothing was just not fitting the way I would like.
A few months ago, I had a serious conversation with myself. I was 56, a successful entrepreneur, and had always prided myself on being in great shape. But over the last 3 years, I couldn't seem to exercise my way out of a "fat pouch" on my stomach and my thighs were an embarrassment. So I went on the internet to find a great MD who specialized in liposuction and I found Dr. Andrew Kleinman.
