I got rhinoplasty with Zak and Dr. Heil and was so scared things weren't going to go right. Zak reassured me that everything will be just fine. After surgery I couldn't of been happier with the results. It's exactly what I wanted and I had a quick recovery! I want to thank them both and the whole staff for a great experience!

Dr. Heil was informative and positive during the process of consultation and surgery, not to mention the work he did. He was a great choice for me.
in Upper St Clair, PA |
I am a longtime patient of Dr Heil and have always been very satisfied with the treatment by all providers. I would highly recommend him to any member of my family and friends. He is truly an artist and exceptionally skilled in his field. He performed my breast lift and reduction and most recently some liposuction and i am so happy with the results. I am also a patient of his medical spa where i receive regular treatments of Botox and filler by his physician assistant. Love them all!

I could not be more happy with my result for BA and Liposuction. Doctor Heil exceeded my expectations. He was kind, professional, and very understanding. I never felt rushed in the office. Thank you for everything you did for me. Looking forward to seeing Zak for my Botox treatment.

Doctor Heil is one of the few plastic surgeons who will sit and take his time with you answering questions before and after your procedure. He will never rush you. He is the most humble and has the best bedside manner. I recommend Doctor Heil to all of my family and friends. He cares about you and wants you to be happy.
