Dr. Hurwitz performed a lower lateral facelift on me. The results are beautiful and natural with unseen scars. Everything was smooth sailing.

Dr. Hurwitz performed breast augmentation on me and I could not be more pleased! His credentials alone tell you how educated and experienced he is but after meeting him and seeing his confidence and knowledge face to face was even more reassuring and gave me complete faith in him. I would recommend him for everything he does. His staff is sweet and helpful and appointment time is fast and convenient!

I am extremely pleased with my breast augmentation revision by Dr. Hurwitz. He was very attentive to what my desired outcome was, but also made sure to put my long-term comfort and goals into perspective throughout the process. Both he and all of his staff were wonderful and made the process as smooth as possible.

I lost close to 300 pounds and had accomplished so much but felt like I had still failed with all of my extra skin. Dr Hurwitz fixed that in Dec. of 2014 and my follow up surgery in the beginning of 2015. I have never met such a compassionate and caring Doctor till I met him. He changed my whole life by getting rid of this skin. I would recommend him to anyone and appreciate my new body.

Although the waiting time to see Dr. Hurwitz was past my appointment time, I was thrilled with my results. He made sure to listen to exactly what I want to achieve and made sure to give me exactly what I asked for. I have had fillers with him multiple times and have yet to be disappointed. He also was able to make it so I didn't bruise which I was very happy about as a past provide left severe bruising each time.

Dr Dennis Hurwitz is the most skilled and professional Plastic Surgeon in the tri-state Pittsburgh area. He and his staff has made me feel at ease during countless procedures for my recurring skin cancers. Compared with other doctors, he has a mastery of using tiny stitches that aren't noticeable. . (Especially on my face) Thanks, Dr Hurwitz!
