Reviewed the Doctors interview with WJLA. Channel 7, Washington, DC. Dr. Benjamin's experience and suggestions to the consumer were substantive and clearly articulated. Patient education is essential for ALL procedures.

Not satisfied with tummytuck results. He became unprofessional and defensive, when I expressed my dissatisfaction. He wants more money for additional liposuction. He didn't do an adequate job the first time, so I have pay again? I have subpar results.

I did my tummy tuck and lipo of back n flanks December 2015. Dr. Benjamin and his wife were extremely patient as well as attentive. Dr. Benjamin genuinely care and follow up and make home visits after surgery. I love my results and I recieve compliments everywhere I go. I would recommend Dr. Benjamin to anyone looking to have PS. He is trustworthy, patient, and he's a master in the art of sculpting. Thanks Dr. B

I had a wonderful experience using Dr. Benjamin. The results of my surgery (January 14, 2016) are awesome. I am receiving compliments all of the time. I had the Laser Lipo on my abs and back. Dr. B. believed that I should have a tummy tuck but I was adamant on trying the laser lipo first. I loved that he took as much time as I needed to discuss my options with me and my husband. I met him the week prior to surgery and asked how soon he could fit me in. I am down 20lbs since my surgery!
