I found Dr. Kass on realself, he had the most experience I had seen with Silikon and I have to say I was very impressed with his before and after photos. His expertise in lip augmentation with Silikon is amazing. I am now on my 3rd treatment of Silikon, and my lips are right where I want them to be! Dr. Kass is very knowledgeable and patient with all of your questions and concerns. Highly recommend him to anyone interested in Silikon.

Yesterday was my first visit at Dr. Kass office, I had the best experience ever. He made me feel so comfortable and took the time to answer all my questions, I will definitely recommend him to everyone that I know. He will be my new doctor :)

Dr. Kass is an excellent injector who knows exactly how to correct crow’s feet. I’ve seen him 5-6 times before for Botox, and he never disappoints. I am writing this review because in my last visit, Dr. Kass confided how stunned he was when he received a critical review from a patient he injected Botox on even though he was confident that he did nothing wrong for that patient. I have NEVER had a bad result from this doctor!
St Petersburg, FL |
For years, I had beautiful skin. I managed to avoid the skin ravages of puberty and hormones that affect so many people in their teenage years. Then in my early thirties, I began suffering from acne outbreaks. I had many, many visits to dermatologists and tried so many different creams and regimens. All to no avail! My acne outbreaks persisted and then progressed to deep and dreadful acne scars! I was too afraid to try Accutane because of everything I’d read about this medicine. But I thi
St Petersburg, FL |
I came to Dr. Kass, not really knowing what I wanted. I just knew I was aging, and wasn’t looking how I wanted to. He listened to what I was concerned about, and between the two of us we came up with what I felt was an excellent surgical plan. I never felt pressured or rushed through my consult with Dr. Kass or his surgical coordinator. I came back one more time before I booked my procedure, and had decided to go with a facelift and eyelid surgery. Dr. Kass staff was so helpful with everything!
Tampa, FL |
I decided to go to Dr. Kass to receive Restylane in my lips. More than anything I wanted to go to a doctor who did the injections himself, rather than using an esthetician or nurse. Two of my friends go to him, and they are always very happy with their results. I was able to get in a few weeks after I called for a consult, and received treatment same day. Dr. Kass was very patient and very gentle and explained everything to me. My lips looking AMAZING! I wish I had done this sooner. There was v

As a young teen, I had terrible acne, which of course turned into even worse adult acne. I spent a lot of time in the dermatologist office. This really got me nowhere. Finally, after years of battling acne, it went away, but I ended up with acne scars. I came across Dr. Kass on realself, and saw his amazing results from his acne scar treatment. I immediately made an appointment with his office. The staff was very friendly and accommodating with my busy work schedule. Dr. Kass was honest and very

I received Botox on a regular basis in New York while residing there; however, I was having a hard time finding a doctor I liked here in Florida. I found Dr. Kass on realself and was pleased with his reviews. I made an appointment and have been a faithful patient ever since. I moved here 4 years ago, and every time I see Dr. Kass, I am pleased with my outcome. I receive Botox in my forehead, and he seems to have the magic touch!
Tampa, FL |
I am amazed with the results of my face lift, neck lift, ptosis and 4 eyelid Blepharoplasty surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Kass to anyone. Dr. Kass is professional, experienced and an incredibly talented surgeon. I think he is the best eyelid surgeon in the Tampa Bay area. Now I have much more light in my eyes and hence a better vision. Instead of eye bags I have nicely shaped eyelids. My face looks very natural and at least 10 years younger. I love my neck and jaw! I wish I had done it sooner.
St Petersburg, FL |
Short and sweet, I couldn’t be happier with Dr. Kass! I met with him a few months ago to discuss the possibility of a neck lift. I knew from the moment I walked into the office, this place/doctor was the one for me. From the staff, to Dr. Kass, before and after care, and my results, everything was exactly what I wanted if not more! Dr. Kass is the crème de la crème of neck lift surgeons! Ladies, you will NOT be disappointed!
St Petersburg, FL |
I was referred to Dr. Kass by my optometrist. I found that with age, my eyelids were sagging and puffy, and I wasn’t happy with how I was looking. His office staff was very friendly and accommodating. Dr. Kass is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. He addressed my main concern first, which was my upper eyelids, and brought the bags under my eyes to my attention. My procedure was quick and nearly pain free. I just saw him yesterday for my “after photos”. I am ecstatic with the results and progre

I decided to give myself a gift for my 35th birthday. Since I was a young adult, I had bags under my eyes, it seemed like after I turned 25, they worsened. After meeting with Dr. Kass, I learned that they are called festoons, & can be hereditary, which made sense, because my dad had terrible bags under his eyes. It took one appointment with Dr. Kass and I knew right then that I was making the best decision I could for myself. I had received fillers from other doctors for that area, but that only

Approximately a year ago I walked into Dr. Kass’ office, and little did I know it would change my life for the better. I had spent the previous week researching for the best facelift surgeon in my area, and I found many great reviews about Dr. Kass. I quickly made an appointment with him and soon realized that I was making the best decision I had in a long time. I decided to move forward with an endoscopic forehead lift and facelift. I was able to get my surgery in the time frame I wanted and wi

BUTCHER/NOT DOCTOR- He left the Hosp. without ever telling me what he had done or that he had put stitches on my face. My wife was waiting in the out patient waiting room & he never spoke to her. 4 days after my stitches were removed on my face the 2inch incision split wide open. I returned to his office & was told he "was too busy" to see me. Standing there with a 2inch gash in my face I waited an hour. The office emptied I waited 20 more min. I was told he was on the phone. SCARRED FOR LIFE!!
St Petersburg, FL |
Had an operation performed by the Dr. Approx. 5 years ago. He has left me with facial scars around my eyes, and given me what people call a hound dog effect, meaning my eyes where he stitched up operation, which was upper and lower Bleth. I was always complimented on my eyes, but age made the skin sag. I wish I never had the operation. He acts like he cares but once he gets his money, he doesn't. He will have you sign many documents to protect himself. He is a terrible surgeon, dont use him.

I have been seeing Dr. Kass for the last 5 years for Botox to my elevens and crows feet. He is always a blast to see and makes me feel right at home. His office staff is always smiling and laughing, a very welcoming feeling. Dr. Kass has given me the self esteem boost I needed. He comes highly recommended from me for all your Botox needs.
in Tampa, FL |
I previously got lip injections and I wasn't happy with them. I did research and went to Dr. Kass. He performed lip injections with restylane. They looked great, exactly what I wanted! Absolutely love him and the work that he did. I will only visit him now for my procedures. Great doctor and great staff. I highly recommend him!!
in Clearwater, FL |
I went to Dr. Kass after I found him on the internet. I knew that I wanted to do something to rejuvenate my face but wasn't sure about fat transfer. I was astounded how much time Dr. Kass spent with me and how patient he was reviewing with me various options suited for my particular face, all within a budget that I could afford. He explained to me about how facial proportions change with age and about how volume loss contributes to this problem. I am so happy with my results!

I am a 48 year old male. I want to help others who may need services like I needed. I broke my nose when I was in my 20’s, resulting in disfigurement and leading to two rhinoplasties by supposedly excellent surgeons. I am so very happy with the results of what Dr. Kass has done for my nose. Now, I would not trust any other doctor but him to inject me with Silikon 1000! That is how highly I think of his skills and of his artistry! In my opinion, he deserves all of the rave reviews!
I came to see Dr. Kass because of the wonderful reviews he has received on so many different websites. I can’t believe how nervous I was! I had never had anything done to change my appearance before and I had a million questions. Dr. Kass was incredibly patient with me and immediately put me at ease with having this procedure. We discussed various options to improve augment my lips and he encouraged me, since it was my first time, to use a hyaluronic acid filler such as Juvederm or Restylane
in Miami, FL |
For years I was embarrassed by my droopy, saggy neck and I had even tried Ultherapy as it was touted as a noninvasive procedure which would rejuvenate my neck. What a waste of money that was! Then I went to see Dr. Kass for him to inject Kybella into my neck. Maybe because of the marketing hype, I was sold on noninvasive treatments! He patiently explained to me that Kybella, although it was an encouraging new noninvasive treatment for neck rejuvenation, would not be the best option for me.

I originally came to see Dr. Kass for what I thought was going to be just under eyelid surgery for eye bags. After meeting with him, he suggested that, while doing under eyelid surgery and eye bags treatment, I also do a fat transfer from my belly to my cheeks. That in addition to removing fat from the lower eyelids (with incisions inside so magically no scar!), what I also needed was more volume in the cheeks and in the under eye hollows and it would make a tremendous difference in rejuvenatin
I have dealt with acne since I was in my early teens. I?ve been on proactive, tried every over the counter product imaginable and even had some laser treatments. After reaching my wits end, I did some serious research and came across Dr. Kass. After my initial consult, I was ready for treatment that day! The thing about Dr. Kass is that he doesn?t pull any punches and is very frank and very realistic about the chances for improvement. But his before and after photos truly speak for themselves

I had a very complicated unilateral eyelid problem due to nerve damage as a teenager from chronic headaches and have undergone several previous procedures. The last procedure I had done went flawlessly and I have been doing extremely well since. It was a challenging case however Dr. Kass works wonders!
in Gulfport, FL |
Best decision I could have made, great Doctor and staff. Could not be happier with my results. Everyone says I look like I just came off a vacation, well rested and feeling good. I highly recommend this Doctor and his practice. I was on the fence, but committed after the in-depth discussions I had with the surgeon and his staff and they answered every question and provided me with honest answers and were realistic about the outcome. They did not over promise, but they certainly over deliver!

After 40 years of teaching, I had finally retired and decided to do something for myself. I came to see Dr. Kass about my eyelids; they were starting to droop and causing me to look tired and angry all the time. I met with Dr. Kass twice, and I knew from the first visit that I wanted him to do my surgery. He was very open and honest with me and answered all of my questions. His office staff was great to work with and always so pleasant whenever I called. My surgery was only about an hour long an

I just finished my last treatment of Silikon with Dr. Kass. I started seeing him about a year ago and started this whole process. I wanted something permanent in my lips to make them fuller, but I didn’t want to have surgery. That’s when I found Dr. Kass on google. I read about Silikon 1000, and that it was a permanent filler he was injecting. He was so kind, so patient and was absolutely wonderful and caring. I am so happy with my results!
in Tampa, FL |
I saw Kass 3-15-16 because I had a biopsy on the inside or my upper right eye lid and it was positive for squamous cell carcinoma that I wanted removed. He needed a copy of the biopsy and said he would get one and made an appointment for 3-29-16. My other doctor had recommended MOHS surgery for this very small cancer. I think that Kass talked to the other doctor and was convinced that MOHS surgery was the best way to go and stated that he would not remove the cancer. He was very belligerent

Horrible experience! I went to Dr Kass for a eyelid lift. First, the lady who performed my vision test didn't know what she was doing. Next I met with Dr. Kass who was not only rude but didn't feel the need to answer questions. When I asked what he would specifically do, he told me to LOOK IT UP ON LINE!! It was a total money making scheme whereas he wanted 3 more appointments to keep billing insurance. While he has the credentials, he also has deep pockets with no regard to your needs.

Facelift with Fat Transfer Dr. Kass and his staff have made this whole experience absolutely fantastic! I met with 2 other doctors before seeing Dr. Kass, and there?s a reason they say to save the best for last. Dr. Kass did not rush through my consult, and I really appreciated that. His office staff addressed all of my concerns and were so nice in answering any lingering questions I had. My outcome far, far exceeded my expectations!

Last year my sister in law had a croton oil peel by Dr. Kass, she had terrible lines on her face and after the peel she looked as smooth and tight as could be. I decided at that point that I needed to have this peel done. The decision was easy for me since she had already had it done and I saw what amazing results are achieved first hand! I did meet with Dr. Kass for a consultation to discuss further concerns I had about my face, and decided to go ahead and book a facelift and have the croton pe

After much research and several consults, I am happy to report that I am so please with the results from eyelid surgery and fat transfer! My cheeks are contoured exactly how I wanted them to be and I look so much more youthful under my eyes. I didn?t really understand the benefits of fat transfer until Dr. Kass explained it to me. And I am so glad that he did! I feel and I look like I am in my 20?s again. It is just unreal to me the amount of compliments that I've been receiving!
in Hudson, FL |
I chose Dr. Kass to do my upper eyelid surgery based off his tremendous reviews and excellent credentials. I spent numerous nights doing my research before making my first appointment with him. Dr. Kass was very honest with me during every consultation and gave me realistic expectations. The office staff, Mary and Kate, answered all of pre and post-operative questions. The procedure went smoothly, they warned me that I wouldn?t remember much from the day and I truly do not. Afterwards, I had

I heard about Dr. Kass from my friend?s mother. She has seen him many times for Botox, and said he would be able to help me with my under eye bags. IAt forty, I thought I might be too young to have surgery. But he gave me realistic expectations and understood how I felt about the bags. They made me look and feel older than I was. Shortly after meeting with Dr. Kass I scheduled my surgery. And I am so happy that I did! Fantastic results!

I saw a recent advertisement for Restylane Lyft while I was watching TV. I went online and did some research about it and that?s how I found Dr. Kass. I was able to get in for a consult the same week I called, which we all know is rare for a doctor?s office! Both of the ladies I spoke to on the phone were very helpful and friendly. Dr. Kass was a real joy. He answered all of my questions and I immediately felt at ease. I decided to have the Restylane Lyft injected the same day as my consult. My

I just moved to Florida from Michigan, and I was looking for a new plastic surgeon to do my fillers. I found Dr. Kass online, and immediately made an appointment to see him. I was only going in for fillers, until I actually took the time to talk about what was really bothering me, my eyes. They looked so sad and droopy, almost like that sad dog you see on the cartoons! Dr. Kass explained to me the procedure for both upper and lower eyelid surgery. I met with his schedul

I am currently 60 years old, when I first started this process I was 59. I spent a lot of time doing my research on Dr. Kass, reading his reviews, meeting with him and his staff, checking out quite a few other websites as well as his before and after photos. Let me start off by saying, the doc is true to his word! I made my first consultation with Dr. Kass about a year ago. It was right after my birthday and I decided it was time for me. I waited a long time to decide exactly what i wanted to ha
