I would like to personally thank you for visiting my site. It has been created to be both informative and educational, so as to illustrate the plastic surgery options available today.
Modern plastic surgery has opened the doors to an entirely new world of self-improvement. You no longer need to feel self conscious about an imperfection. Whether it is something you were born with, something that developed through the effects of gravity or the sun, or whether it occurred due to trauma, anything can be improved.
Your outward appearance should be a reflection of how you feel on the inside. Cosmetic surgery affords you the option of making the two coincide.
When you choose a plastic surgeon you are entrusting him with your appearance. You should know that his surgical training and experience are of the highest standards, so you can confidently and comfortably put your expectations into his skillful hands.
He should be able to understand not only your goals, but your aesthetic ideals as well. Once that is agreed upon he should have the knowledge and technical proficiency to fulfill them.
For those considering plastic surgery in Florida, probably the most important factor in its success is the surgeon you choose. When you choose a Florida cosmetic surgeon you are entrusting that person with your appearance. It is important to also check the doctor’s credentials. By knowing that the doctor’s surgical training and experience are that of the highest standards, you can confidently and comfortably put your expectations into their skillful hands.
About The Doctor
Dr. Hochstein, or Dr. H as he is known as, began his medical career when he applied to medical school as a merit scholar high school senior. He was able to surpass the customary four years of college and go directly from high school into medical school. The first in a long list of exceptional achievements to be obtained during his academic and surgical training. He attended the accelerated program at the Louisiana State University Medical Center where he graduated as Valedictorian of his class. It was during his time in medical school that Dr. H worked closely with the Department of Surgery and had his first scientific paper published. He received his M.D. in 1990.
He continued his training in General and Trauma surgery at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas from 1990 to 1995. It was there that Dr. H decided to pursue a career in Plastic Surgery. The ability to directly and somewhat instantly, improve a patient’s quality of life was something that appealed to Dr. Hochstein.
Becoming a Plastic Surgeon was the best forum in which to achieve that goal. It was during this time that Dr. Hochstein continued to publish scientific papers in such international publications as the Annals of Plastic Surgery. He served as surgical chief resident at Parkland Memorial in 1995.
Dr. Hochstein then continued his training in Plastic Surgery at the University of Miami from 1995 to 1998 where he had the privilege to serve as the fellow of the renowned Dr. D. Ralph Millard, with whom he wrote a paper on the peri-operative care of the cosmetic surgery patient. He served as chief resident in Plastic Surgery in 1998. It was during this time that Dr. H ran the exceptionally busy cosmetic surgery clinic at the University of Miami, as well as the surgical clinic at the Veterans Hospital of Miami.
He once again distinguished himself by winning the Academic Award at the University of Miami for receiving the highest score on the “Plastic Surgery in-service exam.” An exam, which is taken by every resident plastic surgeon worldwide.
Since 1998, Dr. Hochstein has continued his career in plastic surgery by establishing a surgical center dedicated to the complete care of the plastic surgery patient. Besides having impeccable surgical training, Dr. H has performed well over ten thousand surgeries during his career.
From the very beginning of Dr. Hochstein’s surgical training until now, at his own state of the art surgical facility, he has set himself apart from the masses of other cosmetic surgeons. His goal has remained the same from the day he elected to become a cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon. His natural, beautiful results and thriving practice are testament to what he set out to achieve from the very beginning: changing a person’s quality of life, through self-improvement.
