I hit 50 and began to see my mother's face. Got a mini lift (also called chin lift) and could not be happier! Dr Shafer is amazing. Talented, honest, good bedside manner, always available for follow up calls and questions (sometimes he even answers his own phone!), and never once tried to upsell me on any other procedures, which I find to be very rare. Loved his office staff too!

I am no stranger when it comes to work of Plastic Surgery and the world of Anesthesia. I started getting work done at a very young age and I am 31 now and finally feel like more like myself than I have felt in years. I am also a perfectionist so I would go to Dr's that people looked up to as some of Americas Top Plastic Surgeons and for some reason things always went wrong for me. I was over injected with fat in areas of my face that made me look like I had hollow eyes and the biggest cheeks in the world. I would run from cameras because I couldn't recognize myself anymore. I also had no luck in the breast implant department either; I had some rippling in one implant and one breast was higher than the other. I would have given anything to turn back time but lets face it that was not going to happen so instead I called in for a new line of credit and set out to regain my confidence. \n\nI met Dr. Shafer after numerous other consults and I immediately felt incredibly comfortable with him. He saw what others said I should just leave alone or said that they couldn't fix because it would make it worse. We did some facial liposuction to areas of my face that made me look like a chipmunk and he filled in some hollow areas of my face with some new fat grafts to smooth out the irregularities and contours; and for my breasts he used a material called strattice to help with the rippling and we put in some new implants and they are perfect. \n\nEverything that he did came out great and I am really lucky to have found him. This is my first time ever writing a review but I felt compelled to let the world know what a wonderful Dr. he is. \n\nxoxo AD

I recently had Botox with Dr. Shafer. It was my first time for any cosmetic procedure. I think he did a very nice job. My results look very natural.

I had a breast lift with Dr. David Shafer about a month ago. He did a great job. I consulted with many board certified plastic surgeons before choosing Dr. Shafer. He was the nicest, most informative and most skillful of the surgeons. I could not be happier with my results.

Last fall, my coworker revealed to me that she had arm liposuction with Dr. Shafer. I was wondering if she had had a procedure since she looked as if she had been working out and adding definition to her arms, but I know she does not work out very much. I went in for the same procedure and I am so happy! The procedure took about 2 hours and I went home the same day. I had the liposuction about three weeks ago and I can already see great results. I brought my other friend in with me to my follow up appointment and she really wants to have arm liposuction and her muffin top done at the same time. I really could not be happier.

I think I got what you call a pre-wedding make-over by Dr. Shafer. I am late 30 year old bride and really want to look as fresh as a daisy. I thought about implants but Dr. Shafer said a breast lift and some contouring around my middle would be ideal. He is smart. He really listens and then makes suggestions. Also, he is a GREAT guy. Very easy to talk to and he actually spends time with you instead of shoving you aside like I experienced other places. I look awesome and renewed - I can't think of better words - but still like me! Only more hour- glass and I have abs now thanks to Dr. Shafer. It sounds corny but I love by chest now and I look so much better even under clothes too. My fiance was scared about the surgery but he is oh so happy now. My mom is now getting her eyes done with Dr. Shafer. I could not be happier with Dr. Shafer's skills. I took my mom to his office so I guess that says it all. Thank you Dr. Shafer for everything!!

\nAs I have aged, my cheek bones are less prominent and visibly look older. I saw several doctors and consultations that only suggested surgery for cheek implants. When I saw Dr. Shafer, he offered me Juvederm injections on the cheekbones to help fill the missing volume. We did the treatment on that visit. He just needs a few shots, but it made a big difference right away. I recommended Dr. Shafer to my friend and my two sisters already. He is excellent!\n

OMG I love my results. I had breast implants several years ago in France and was never happy with the results. When I moved to NYC, I was referred to Dr. Shafer. He suggested replacement of the implants and a breast lift. I was initially nervous about the lift incisions, the results are great. I just wish I did not wait so long.

Dr Shafer replaced my implants. We talked through all sorts of option. I didn't feel rushed or prodded like in other offices. I also felt comfortable which was a big deal because my other results were really disappointing and I hated taking my shirt off.\n\nMy breasts now look so beautiful, natural, youthful - and like I was born with them. It has really improved my self esteem. He is a very talented surgeon. My sister-in-law had a breast lift and belly tuck - she looks amazing. He is our beauty secret - I would not consider doing anything to yourself without seeing him first.

Dr. Shafer is heaven sent. Such a nice person and the most talented surgeon in NYC. \n\nI started seeing him for Botox a few years ago when I was still under 40 years old. He did the best job - just the right amount that people think I have great genes and am not using Botox ha! \n\nI never imagined doing 'real surgery' but I saw some of his before and afters and I thought - hey, I deserve it. Recently I did a body lipo - I was thinking just belly and thighs but Dr Shafer suggested a little bit from here and there instead so it would look natural and uniform. Now my inner thighs look so slim, no muffin top, rolls on my back etc. I look great in skinny jeans and do not look my age. \n\nI could not recommend Dr Shafer more sincerely. The whole experience from start to finish was wonderful. He takes things slow and errs on the side of less is more.\n\nHe is a class act and brilliant. A+++

Dr. Shafer is one of the few plastic surgeons that injects the Botox himself. I had previously gone to other plastic surgeons and dermatologists and they had physician assistants or nurses injecting their Botox. Dr. Shafer really seems to treat his injections as an art and takes extra time to make sure that I am very happy. I have never had any problems with his injections and the best part is that everyone thinks that I just have naturally smooth skin. I highly recommend Dr. Shafer.

I must say that I was leery about any type of plastic surgery, but after I found myself back out in the ""dating"" world again at close to 70 I wanted to see if there was something that could be done that would be natural looking - after all, I'm a grandmother and certainly would not want to look like a teenager again. I just wanted to see if some of the sun damage that I had inflicted upon myself in my youth could be mitigated somewhat. Dr. Shafer took the time to walk me through a step-by-step plan that would work for me. It was just what I was looking for! \nNow my friends ask things like, ""what's so different about you, you look so vibrant."" I didn't want to look 40 again, but it's awfully nice not to look 70 either...Thanks again, Dr. S!

Dr. Shafer was referred to me, and I refer him to others without hesitation. He is not only an expert plastic surgeon, but is able to put us at ease, reduce our stress, and make us look great.

I went to Dr. Shafer last year for a tummy tuck and liposuction. It is the best decision that I have every made. After having two kids my belly just was not what it used to be. No matter how much I worked out, my belly still looked flabby. During the procedure, Dr. Shafer was able to tighten my muscles and remove the extra skin and stretch marks. He also did some liposuction on my thighs and arms at the same time. I truly feel like a new person. I recently went to a wedding and was able to put on a dress that I had not worn in years. I really would recommend Dr. Shafer to anyone considering having surgery. My sister is scheduled to have her tummy tuck after the new year and she can't wait.

I go to dr shafer for my botox and out of any of the places I have gone in the past 5 years his way of administering botox is that of an artist. Natural, Movement, last me almost 6 months. I own a laser spa and have referred many clients to dr. shafer who have had everything from juvederm to botox to a full face lift and breast augmentation and everyone was so amazed and happy at the result. I highly recommend him to anyone.
