I received a breast reduction from Dr. Doft in mid-October of this past year. I am in my early 20s so an outcome that not only improved function, but was also aesthetically pleasing was incredibly important. My results have been amazing and recovery was a breeze. —Milan T, Breast Reduction
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Doft for my rhinoplasty. It's been a year since the operation and the result has exceeded my expectations. My nose had been an insecurity of mine for years. She created a nose that fits my face perfectly and not only looks beautiful but also completely natural. —Anna-Maria V, Rhinoplasty
I read about Dr. Doft online was so relieved to find a surgeon who was so enthusiastic without being pushy, and devoted to giving me the body that I needed after living for years in one I wasn’t comfortable with. This surgery changed my life I could not recommend a kinder and more generous surgeon. —Marie K, Overall Care Review
I chose Dr. Doft to perform surgery on my chest and stomach after losing over 100 lbs, resulting in loose skin. I chose her for many reasons, including that she would perform the surgery in a hospital instead of a room in her office like another surgeon I consulted. The results were life-changing. —Jenna S, Post Weight Loss Surgery
Can’t speak highly enough about Dr. Doft after my breast reduction surgery. She did such a fantastic job giving me results perfectly tailored to my size and body type. Her office staff is also lovely and extremely responsive. So glad I chose Dr. Doft as my surgeon! —Kelsie H, Breast Reduction

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will the swelling last after a rhinoplasty?


About 50% of the edema or swelling will resolve six weeks after surgery. But for the final look, it is necessary to wait for one year.

Is it possible to have an otoplasty performed in the office?


Yes. I often perform otoplasties in the office using local anesthesia for adults. Many adults like having the procedure performed without anesthesia, leaving the office immediately after the procedure. I do recommend anesthesia for children.

How much downtime will I need to have a blepharoplasty?


Due to thin eyelid skin, the eyes tend to bruise a considerable amount. Most of the bruising will resolve after one week. Any extra bruising can usually be covered up with make-up. Eyelid surgery is also not very painful. Most patients will only need Tylenol for pain relief the first day or two after surgery.

What is the best age to get a facelift?


This is a question that I am asked every day and the age is different for each person. Patients who smoked, had significant sun exposure, weight fluctuations, or entered menopause earlier will tend to age faster. I always tell my patients that when you are looking in the mirror and are not happy more days than not, it is time to come in. There is nothing better to define your jawline and correct a sagging neck than a facelift.
