I am do not recommend this doctor at all. The most badly experience I've had in my life. she did liposuction, tummy tuck and transfer the fat graft in my buttocks... now my stomach isn't flat at all, the scar looks so ugly, buttocks and back looks the same as before surgery. All those means that I completely lost my money 6,500 cash plus whatever my insurance paid for the abdominal plastic by gets this terrible job performed by doctor Teresa benacquista at montefiore Medical Center plastic surg.

I schedule coverage for my job 2 times. I was only going back to find out when my surgery was to be scheduled. The appointments were canceled two weeks n a row only to have her come in on the 3rd week and say she didn't feel comfortable doing the surgery. She recommended another surgeon now I have to start the process all over again. All the office had to do was tell me this with a phone call and I could of had it done and been on the mend already.
