Dr. Handler was one of several Board Certified FACS Plastic Surgeons that I interviewed. He is kind, realistic, helpful, and honest about his assessment of what can be accomplished by the procedures requested. My plan was to have the abdominoplasty on one date and the breast lift with auto augmentation two weeks later. When my RBC counts were not within normal limits he insisted on postponing the second procedure until I stabilized. The second procedure was performed one month after the first. After each procedure he called me at home the following day. He is also always accessible by e-mail (even on weekends) and responds promptly to questions or concerns. He is available through a service on off-hours as well. He was available for all follow up appointments at no additional charge. A year later I sought a consult with him about arm liposuction. I was so pleased with my TT and BL results, and even with diet and exercise, my arms were way too large and not in proportion with my new figure. He was realistic about what I could expect from the arm lipo, and offered alternate plastic surgeons if I was interested in newer methods of lipo, but I chose to use his services again for the arms, because I am so comfortable with his expertise and manner. I am 4-weeks post op from the arm lipo and am thrilled with the results. They are better than I anticipated. I highly recommend him.
