Post op/Follow up care is awful. $19,600 and little feedback including lack of scar revision is uncalled for.
I too had a very bad experience with Doctor Hyman and am trying to get my money back to do work elsewhere. I wrote to the Board and they completely took his side. What protection do we have in US to do plastic/Cosmetic surgeries? I feel none.
It seems its best to go outside thecountry, pay cheaper and get better results.
I still would like to fight Dr. Hymans work and get my money back. He is a scam artist with Body cosmetica.
Very bad experience with this surgeon. Joshua Hyman is far from being extraordinarily detailed as described on Body Cosmetica's website. As a matter of fact, he is able to avoid being that way entirely. The consultation was very clear. The reason for my visit was to see if the indentation around my navel could be improved or removed. Dr Joshua Hyman was very positive, affirmative and optimistic about the procedure and results and made it look like a quite simple surgery. He said that he would "pull the indentation out and make a straight line". He did not do that at all. He did not even touch the spot in question. He just revised the scar that was next to the indentation. 20 min procedure, 1/2" scar revision. I had agreed to pay $3500 because I had that specific request. He did not appear challenged by it at the time of consultation. However after the procedure, in a subsequent email, he said "You are lucky that it is not worse".
How desperate for money is he? It is impossible that during the procedure he did not see that he was not doing what I had signed a consent for. Also, after the procedure, since I was not happy at all with the outcome, his assistant Kendra looked at my scar from 5 feet away and exclaimed how so much better it was. (She definitely could not see it from where she stood. Which made me all the more furious. She did not like to be called on her bs afterwards either). They just don't care. They are salespeople. I find them totally dishonest and unethical.
And now of course they do not want to talk to me as in previous review. So I think that Dr Hyman and Body Cosmetica are just a ripoff.
Very Bad Experience with this doctor. Not worth spending single Dollar with. You will be sorry, better learn from my Experience."
was looking for a good Lypo Doctor, so I filled some information on the web. Women named Christen called me raving about this Doctor Jousha Hymen. Doctor had pictures the patients, on internet which were very impressive. So Ipaid $11,000 and I went to Dr. Jousha Hymen for lypo in April 2012, Christen and Dr. Hymen both grantee that I will start seeing the effect in 2 weeks and I will loss at least 2 sizes within 3 months. He also said it will take 2 to 3 hours to perform this procedure which he finished in less than an hour. At the end of 3 months I say no change in my size or the fat I had in my body, so I went back the Doctor. Now the Doctor said I have to wait for 6 months to see the results. I gave him $11,000 so had to ask him about his promises. When I tried to confront him everything changed, he doesn’t want to deal with me anymore. Problem is you cannot get your money back either, even though you paid with credit card, because it’s considered services and there is no refund for services.
I waited another 3 months and I still had no results. So I asked Dr. Hymen and Christen about their grantees again. Christen nicely walked away saying “what can she do, it’s between me and Doctor”. Now Dr. wants another $1600 to redo the procedure.
In short, I felt that the pictures he posted on the web are some ideal cases, if you search the different web site you will see so many other patients complaining about this doctor. He charges $11,000 to $13000 for 3 areas and finishes his procedure for all these area’s in less the one hour with zero results where as other doctors believe it should talk at least 3 to 4 hours. I will highly recommend not to get trapped on the location or Cristen’s promises or in his promises. Do not trust on his verbal grantees. You will never get your money back. Most likely you will have no result with $11.000 on your credit card and every time your will curse him while paying your credit card bill.
DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY WORST DOCTOR – I paid almost 10,000.00 for lipo of stomack inner legs and thighs, i couldve flush my money down the toilet, i only had 15 extra pound not a lot and after 1 year i have not even lost 1 pound with that not even 1 size down, and when i had my surgery the doctor was late and only had less than a hour to do it so i dont know if hejust didnt care and didnt do it right but for that price pffffffff i am so mad you cant imagine
please save your money and go to someone else !!!!!
Went down to Manhattan to raise my spirits – I was feeling down in the doldrums due to a recent unachieved major goal at work. I felt so down that when I got a good look at my legs, the hair there that didn’t bother me before, became a major distraction. And for a girl, there’s always the beauty shop to rush to in times of emergency feel-good experiences.
I chatted online with one of my workmates and she “pushed” me here. I tried one of their facials. While having my “treatment,” I ended up confiding my failure to one of the staff there. Her words really comforted me. After the session, I had a smile on my face because of the uplifting results and experience. Oh, and about their laser treatment, I couldn’t say anything less. Thank you!
Ready for any reunion – For many of us, high school has been tough. But sometimes high school reunions could be even tougher. I remember being teased because of my hairy arms back then. Some would even make monkey sounds when I would walk down the hall. So I made some preparations for our upcoming reunion.
A few weeks ago, I started laser hair removal treatment here. Now, I can’t believe the hair on my arms is almost invisible, even under bright lights! I feel I’m more than ready to go to that reunion with glowing skin like this. And now, I’m sure that the only sounds I’ll be hearing when I walk down the venue’s halls will be those of admiration.
Looking sleeker, feeling cleaner – When I went here to have hair on my chest and belly removed for good, I thought I had done the unthinkable for a guy, it being a beauty salon and all. But when I saw two guys who has been undergoing laser treatment for two weeks, I started to feel better.
But it was after I talked to them that I really felt great. The two buddies showed me a picture of themselves before they had the treatment, and I was really impressed with the results. They also said that felt cleaner for some reason. Now that I’ve seen and felt the results for myself, I couldn’t agree with them more.
A new kind of ‘hot’ – When I travel to places where the temperature is warm, I can feel a lot of moisture on my skin, and not in a good way. I’ve always felt that my excessive body hair is the culprit behind making me feel stickier than normal. Turns out, it is.
I confirmed the research I did with the skin-care specialists here. So when I had the time, I grabbed the chance of getting that laser treatment that rid me of my body hair forever. Now, I still feel hot. But in the beautiful sense of the word!
Everybody listen up. – Im a football player, but my insane back hair was getting to me so much that I was willing to do something some would say is un-masculine. I did hair removal on my back and am happy that I'm no longer beastly for lack of better words. Girls find me more attractive and at my age that's important. Def. recommend laser hair removal to those experiencing the same problems.
