I have had several procedures performed by Dr. Sutkin. He and his staff are very professional and knowledgeable. Dr. Sutkin has a very conservative approach to plastic surgery. Everything he has done for me has been natural looking. I recommend him highly.

He is the scummiest Doctor I have ever met. I would not recommend anyone to go have a surgery with him. I regret not acting on my initial negative instincts
