Tattoo Removal, May 14, 2014, 5:24 am
Reviewer: WilburGrow

When I was young and on a whim, I got a tattoo on my wrist. I have regretted it ever since. It is ugly and looks very unprofessional. I have researched and tried various ways of having the tattoo removed including laser, sand abrasion, (scrubbing the skin with salt) lemon, and cryo (freezing the tattoo off). While most offices recommend laser tattoo removal, I have learned that they do not work well on multi-colored/layered tattoos. It seems each individual layer and color of the tattoo has its own wavelength with varying depths which corresponds to specific tattoo pigments that darker colored and black inks can be more completely removed with the laser technique. The laser apparently breaks down the ink particles which are then absorbed by the body.

I consulted Dr. Shienbaum who explained to me the benefits of each type of tattoo treatment and that multiple repeated laser treatments would be required for my particular tattoo. After some consideration I opted to have the tattoo such as mine excised surgically in one procedure. I could n ot have been happier. The incision was placed in a natural crease of my wrist and after just two months it appeared to have the same color as my normal skin. It proved to be an excellent choice for removal in one sitting without the need for recurrent visits, and the potential for discoloration and pigmentation irregularities.

The excision now looks like a normal crease line of my wrist and is barely visible. I could not recommend Dr. Shienbaum more highly.

I recieved a 3 rd degree burn from a motorcycle. This left a large scar that was very discolored,
Dr. Shienbaum took such good care of me. He was so wanderful. I wish all doctors could be as great as he is!!!

face lift with filler , December 8, 2013, 9:18 am
Reviewer: kshr

I have always prided myself on being slim, fit and trim but over the past five years I have aged prematurely and my face has become sunken in appearance with deep circles around my eyes and skin literally sagging from my cheekbones. As a teacher for over thirty years I wanted something that would not be obvious to my students. I specifically chose to have something done over the holidays so that I could return to work looking refreshed with no obvious surgical changes. So this Thanksgiving week was perfect. Browsing the internet, I selected Dr. Shienbaum because of his reputation. At my initial consultation I explained my concerns and Dr. Shienbaum was good at explaining my various options. His first choice would have been to use my own fat as a natural filler which would be the most permanent to restore the plumpness and fullness of my cheeks. However, at 91 lbs. and being a size 0 that was not an option for me since I literally had no fat to spare. Therefore Dr. Shienbaum offered an alternative to restore my facial collapse and gaunt appearance - namely injecting a filler called Radiesse.He explained that Radiesse consists of micronized bone particles that he would place deeply along my cheekbones. I was hesitant at first,but Dr. Shienbaum assured me his technique was painless. Oh my goodness!! The results were spectacular! Instantly, my cheeks and face were plump and full and my former cheekbone contours returned., all in 15 minutes with no telltale marks, stitches or bruises. The results are absolutely amazing but best of all my students will never know. I would definitely recommend Dr. Shienbaum and his cheek filler to anyone. He is terrific

Really Disgusted, November 27, 2013, 8:01 pm
Reviewer: disgusted2013

I went to Dr Shienbaum to perform my liposuction last year and showed no results from the beginning. He continued to tell me my problem area was only skin & just wait for the results. After almost a year of going back & forth w/still no results he said he would do a in office procedure, wanted to charge me again after I previously paid him over $5k. I stated that I shouldn't have to pay twice for teh same procedure. The day of the procedure I was sedated, he barely numbed me,during the procedure I would wake up screaming repeatedly from the stabbing pain & he refused to stop & numb me. This went on throughout the entire procedure, my screams were ignored until he decided to stop. I never went back for the follow up visit the next day,a nurse call me when I missed the visit, I asked why he didn't stop to numb me, why he didn't stop when I was screaming or why someone didn't do something..anything. I Never hear from Dr. Marvin Shienbaum's office again. He's a HEARTLESS BUTCHER !
