What Our Patients Are Saying


"Dr. Schaffner is by far the best doctor I have ever had. I’ve had plastic surgery before and have never had a doctor so thorough in explaining what to expect. He called me the night after surgery and the next few days to see how I was doing and made sure I had a way to get a hold of him if I needed him or had any questions. Aside from his bedside manner, his work is impeccable. I had a breast lift and breast augmentation with breast implants. Had no idea what to expect or what I was doing. He helped me understand what different sizes would look like and the different types of implants to chose from and the look I’d achieve. Hands down the best doctor I have ever had in NYC. I have recommended him to all my family and friends! "
