      I went to see Dr Hess for a breast reduction! I'm so happy my friend referred him. He was very informing and caring. He knew exactly what I wanted and was very attentive to me needs through out the whole process. His staff was always helpful and friendly.

      Dr. Hess is amazing! I would highly recommend Dr. Hess for reconstructive surgery. I interviewed 3 surgeons and Dr. Hess was by far superior. I am extremely happy with my surgery outcome.

      Thrilled with the results of my lower blepharoplasty and filler injections. But even more impressive was Dr. Hess, himself. His cheerful demeanor is calming and reassuring. He listened, and patiently answered all my questions. Don't even think about seeing another plastic surgeon - he's your man. Barbara Tucson AZ

      I had breast augmentation with Dr. Hess. I visited several surgeons before choosing Dr. Hess and I couldn't be happier with my decision. He took a systematic approach to helping me select the right size breast implants for my body and at the same time made me feel comfortable.
      in Mesa, AZ |
      Dr. Hess is by far one of the most friendly, respectful, and knowledgable a medical professional that I have ever had. He gives great advice and I could not have trusted him more with the outcome of my surgery and speedy recovery.
