I had consultations with several surgeons before selecting Dr. Hurwitz. What initially impressed me about him, aside from his world-renowned reputation, was that he was very direct and decisive. Other doctors were too wishy-washy about what they thought I needed and what their approach would be. They were willing to leave too many important decisions totally up to me without making too many reccomendations. I don't feel qualified to make these decisions. Dr. Hurwitz made such strong and informed reccomendations based on his experience with women of my very thin body type, the decisions became no-brainers. When it comes to breast augmentation alone, the decisions are overwhelming and I could easily have chosen an implant size, type, and placement that would not have given me the result I desired. He knew exactly what would be best.
I felt Dr. Hurwitz's honesty when it came to realistic expectations, possible complications, and future revisions to be so honest and thorough that I immediately trusted him. I knew he wasn't trying to sell me, but was trying to provide me with an honest picture of what to expect. This truly allowed me to make an informed decision.
In my case, financing was not an issue. My decision was not made based on cost. But his fees were somewhat higher than those of the other physicians I had considered. Part of the reason, though, is because Dr. Hurwitz keeps his abdominoplasty patients in the hospital overnight. (Which now I am SO grateful for, this surgery is MAJOR and nobody should go home the same day.) I truly feel that it is worth the extra cost to have a surgeon that you trust and someone with the experience that Dr. Hurwitz has. This decision is too important to let cost be the center facor.
Of course I had terrible jitters at the time of surgery, I found his staff to be very reassuring and supportive. On the morning of the procedure, Dr. Hurwitz spent a lot of time with me answering questions and reassuring me.
My recovery (so far) has been pretty good. Dr. Hurwitz employs nutritional support, light therapy, and wonderful people to expedite a very recovery-friendly atmosphere. I have really been very satisfied overall with the choice I made and have already reccomended him to friends.
