Meet Our Medspa Staff
Leonard Hochstein, MD/ Medical Director
Dr. Leonard Hochstein graduated with top of the class distinctions and received his Doctor of Medicine degree in 1990. Between 1990-1995, he trained in general and trauma surgery at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas.
During his time at Parkland Memorial, Dr. Hochstein decided that his passion was surgery; where he’d have the ability to directly and somewhat instantly, impact the quality of a patient’s life. It was this desire that fueled Dr. Hochstein’s passion for plastic surgery.
Patient care is and always will be his number one priority.
Dr. Hochstein is ABPS (American Board of Plastic Surgery) board certified physician. Since establishing his thriving plastic surgery practice, Dr. Hochstein has performed over twelve thousand surgeries. He was even awarded Allergan’s Black Diamond Award, which is only granted to the highest level breast augmentation providers.
Over 15 years of training and experience have provided Dr. Hochstein with the skills necessary to achieve countless beautiful and natural surgical results on nearly all areas of the body.
Dr. Hochstein’s vision has since emerged with a comprehensive aesthetic retreat where all one’s transformational needs are fulfilled at Hochstein Medspa.
