dr hochstein
Dr. Leonard Hochstein’s exemplary career started straight out of high school when he was able to apply directly to medical school as a merit scholar high school student. He attended Louisiana State University Medical Center where he trained with the Department of Surgery and published his first scientific paper. In 1990, he graduated as valedictorian of his class and received his Doctor of Medicine degree.
Between 1990 and 1995, Dr. Hochstein 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.
In 1995, Dr. Hochstein served as chief surgical resident at Parkland Memorial. During this time, he published scientific papers, several of which were printed by the Annuals of Plastic Surgery. He received the Academic Award from the University of Miami for achieving the highest score on the Plastic Surgery In-Service Exam (an exam taken by every resident plastic surgeon worldwide).
In 1998, Dr. Hochstein established a surgical center dedicated to the comprehensive care of his plastic surgery patients. Since then, the goal of his practice has always remained the same: to change the quality of a person’s life through self-improvement.
His natural, beautiful results and thriving practice are a testament to what he set out to achieve from the very beginning: changing a person’s quality of life, through self-improvement.

Dear Dr. Hochstein and Amanda,

I am not sure where to even begin so let me start by saying THANK YOU! A very big thank you from my heart. From the moment I walked into your office a few months ago, I was impressed beyond words. My first impression was the beauty of your office, next was the way I was greeted by one of the sweet girls at the front desk – with a pleasant and welcoming smile. My appointment was at 4PM. I could not believe that after filling out the paperwork (which took about 5 quick minutes) I did not even have time to pick up a magazine as I was called right away to see Dr. Hochstein for my consultation. That is impressive. I’ve never been to a Dr.’s office where I didn’t have to wait for a while. Let me also add that each time thereafter I came in for pre op, surgery and post up, it was the same deal. I was seen exactly at the time of my appointment. WOW! I then was seated in Dr. Hochstein’s office which was beautiful as well. Decorated with several plaques and gorgeous pictures of Lisa. I felt very welcomed. When Dr. H walked in also with a great smile, I felt very comfortable. He listened to every word I said, and asked all of the right questions. I knew at that moment, this was the place where I was having my surgery. I felt a trust in him basically at hello. Dr. Hochstein is very personable, warm, friendly and has a great sense of humor. And knows what he is doing. After showing me several pictures of his work which I felt I did not even need to see, as I was ready to book my surgery.

Love always,

Jamie Beth Schwarz
Dear Dr. Hochstein and Staff,

I wanted to take the time to thank you and your staff for the amazing care I have received at your office from start to finish. I have never felt as happy with myself as I do now. I look in the mirror and absolutely love who I see looking back at me. Thank you for the amazing new me!

Dear Dr. H and Staff,

Thank you so much for everything! Everyone was so nice and helpful. My results are amazing! I am so happy I chose Dr. H as my doctor. You have changed my life.


I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery. Dr. Leonard Hochstein & his staff are the best – they make you feel completely related and everyone treats you great. I’m so glad that I chose Dr. Hochstein, he does wonderful work. Thanks to all of you!

Dr. H,

I live in Canada & was very worried about going to a doctor that was so far away. But after speaking to his wonderful staff that spent the time to go over all of my concerns, I knew Dr. H was the doctor for me! It’s only been one week since my surgery and I’ve only experienced very little to no pain at all Everything looks amazing & I just can’t wait to show my friends back at home my new “editions.”
