My experience with Dr. Kass and his hetter peel has been great! I was initially very nervous but both Dr. Kass and his staff were very comforting and reassuring before, during and after my peel. I prepped my skin as instructed and the kit the office sells helped immensely before the hetter peel, and has helped me maintain my skin after. My results exceeded my expectations and have made me feel young again! A big thank you to Dr. Kass and his expertise in this procedure.

I had my Hetter Peel with Dr. Kass almost a year ago. From the moment I made my appointment till my last visit, the doctor and staff was nothing but friendly and helpful. I had little discomfort after my procedure, and peeled for about 10 days. As a young adult I smoked and lived in the sun, especially being in Florida, and this peel was able to rid me of my sun spots and smokers lines. I am very happy with my results and will be returning to Dr. Kass for all of my cosmetic needs!

I received treatment from Dr. Kass for my acne scars in January. I just saw him this week for a checkup and I am so happy with my results. Dr. Kass was fair and honest with me about what to expect and what kind of results I could anticipate. I appreciate Dr. Kass’ honesty and thoroughness during the entire process. His office staff was very kind and attentive as well. Dr. Kass performed several different procedures at once, and I am still seeing improvement since the peel. Highly recommend doing this particular procedure during the winter months, much easier to recover when it wasn’t so hot out. I am very pleased with my face and couldn’t ask for a better result.

Dr. Kass performed eyelid surgery on me a few weeks ago. My upper eyelids were sagging and I had horrible festoons under my eyes. Dr. Kass answered all of my questions and told me I would be best suited for the outpatient center, and I was glad he was so honest with me. I had some bruising and swelling, but nothing unbearable. I’ll be 59 this year and feel like Dr. Kass has taken me back 10 years by eliminating my sagging eyelids and bags. I do not know why I waited so long to have this done, but I am thrilled with my results and only wish I had done so sooner. nt!

On 1-19-19 I had a lower facelift. I now have a facial disfigurement and impairment that pulls down on one side when I’m talking and smiling. One side drops down like a had a STROKE. I am very upset and I’m currently trying to find another doctor that can correct it. Also, I have a ridge on the side of my face. At the follow-up apt, I was in tears and explained I was terrified of my disfigurement. It was terrible in the way that he treated me about it. Explaining my fears and concerns, he interrupted me very abruptly and said, “Let me talk and then you can speak". He talked down to me. Aprx 4 months later-no improvement. He said can take 6 mths-2 yrs to go away in some cases and its rare. He seemed dominating/condescending to me. I would NEVER recommend him. There is a chance that this is a permanent disfigurement.

I saw Dr. Kass today for my 6 month post op appointment. Dr. Kass has treated me for acne scars, which I suffered from since I was a young teen. I am pleasantly surprised with my results, they exceeded my expectations. The procedure was quick and had minimal discomfort. I peel for about 10 days and had no complications post procedure. His staff is very helpful and always available at a moment’s notice. Highly recommend Dr. Kass for all your cosmetic needs!
