“Wonderful office, wonderful staff. Beautiful spa within. Everything under one roof. Dr. Abraham made me feel good about myself without taking advantage of my insecurities. He does minimally invasive services too. Overall great experience, I would recommend to anyone!”
~ Mary H., Highland, NY
“Dr. Abraham is wonderful at what he does–there is no one else with his skill and expertise in the area–and when comparing other offices in Manhattan and Westchester–we are really lucky to have his kind of expertise locally here in Dutchess County. I also chose a surgeon who’s board certified in facial plastics as opposed to a general plastic surgeon. He has a spa there in the office, and the aesthetician is great–there are a lot of nice treatment options.”
~ @PKlein, RealSelf.com
“My experience with Dr. Abraham was truly transforming. I began seeing him for Botox injections hoping to stave off the aged look I was developing. I began to see what a skilled surgeon he was as I meet other patients in the waiting room who had had facial reconstruction surgery and face lifts. As a woman fast approaching sixty, I wanted to lose my chicken neck and sagging jowls, but still look like myself. After consulting with Dr. Abraham he assured me I would look like myself only twenty years younger. I opted for a full face and neck lift. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Dr.Abraham is not just a surgeon, but an artist in his field. He stands by his work and his after surgery care is just as impeccable as his surgical skills. His staff is wonderful as well and always there when you need them. I highly recommend Dr. Abraham to anyone who finds themselves in need of a plastic surgeon.”

“Dr. Abraham and his staff make you feel very comfortable and relaxed. They treat you with the best of care and concern. You really feel like you will be taken care of whatever your needs are at the time.”

“I had a rhinoplasty to fix my broken nose. I had a bump and struggled breathing out of my nose. Dr. Abraham and his staff do a phenomenal job in preparing you for the surgery. They did a great job in making sure I was comfortable before and after my surgery. Dr. Abraham is personable and very caring in every appointment making it a pleasant experience!”
~ Clare M., RealSelf.com
Dr.Abraham is amazing! I was in a car accident in 2011 and broke my nose, and he did all he could to fix it and it look great! He is very attentive and patient. He is always willing to have you in the office if you have any concerns post op, which I did and was always professional and reassuring! I would HIGHLY recommend him!!!
~ @brijade608, RealSelf.com
“My experience with Dr. Abraham and his staff was wonderful from start to finish. I’ve had two surgical procedures which included a revision rhinoplasty, chin augmentation and ear lobe reduction – and have been delighted with the results! Dr. Abraham has a gentle manner, listens carefully to what result you are expecting, and is attuned to every detail from consultation, surgery and follow ups. I wouldn’t put my trust in anyone else!

“My experiences with Dr. Bassiri have been great. Getting lip fillers is a treatment I have been getting done for about 8 years now and I have never been this happy with them in all of that time. He knows exactly what he is doing and is really good at it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.”

“I never feel nervous or scared when I go for injections at Facial Plastic Reconstructive & Laser Surgery…They truly care about u & make sure you are comfortable through the procedure. Everyone in that office is quick to help. Ryan Young takes all the time u need to explain the procedure. His work is Amazing! Always very happy when i walk out the door….they always manage to squeeze me in due to my hectic work schedule…..5 Star *****
~ Lori D., Hudson Valley
“Every time I make a visit here I have a great experience, from the office staff to my physician, Ryan Young, PA-C. Everyone is exceptionally professional, courteous, and listens to what I have to say and need at the time. The waiting room is one of the most relaxing places, and someone is always checking on you. PA Ryan Young listens to me and addresses every concern I have. It is a doctors office I trust, and will continue to use.”
~ @storm0264, RealSelf.com
“After doing a lot of research and debating which Dr. to use for Botox injections I finally chose Dr. Bassiri and could not be happier with my decision. The results are amazing! I look younger, rested, and rejuvenated! Love the fact that the result looks very natural so it makes me feel beautiful and confident! Although a bit more expensive than what I am used to, the investment was worth every penny. He was very attentive during the consultation and procedure, answered all my questions and concerns and he eased my nerves during the procedure by talking to me to distract me. Don’t let his “baby face” fool you. He is super well prepared and experienced, very professional, and has a great eye for aesthetics. A master of his craft! I will happily recommend him to everyone!”
~ @LinaChiav, RealSelf.com
“I came to Dr. Bassiri with most of my cheek cut away, and he created a work of art! 9 mos later, the scar is hardly visible, although it rings half my face. He was patient and caring, always taking time to answer my questions fully. Highest recommendation!”

“Magic hands! Let me give you some context…I visited Dr. Kuthalia four years ago for breast augmentation. I researched about 50 plastic surgeons in the tri-state area and narrowed it down to six consultations. Dr. Kuthalia was my third consultation and I was amazed and thrilled to have found “the one”. She was very meticulous about sizing and shape for my specific body frame, giving me her honest professional advice as to what I can choose. I’ve never had surgery before and I was a bit scared, as was my family. She took the time to explain the surgery day protocol to me and I felt very at ease and comfortable with her. She’s now my go-to plastic surgeon for any procedure in the future because I trust her judgement and admire her greatly. You’re the best Dr. K!”
~ ObicularisOris, RealSelf.com
“If you are looking for a surgeon who listens to you, is passionate about her work and is also compassionate about how you are feeling, then I highly recommend Dr. Khuthaila! I never felt nervous or worried about my procedure. Also never felt stupid for asking any questions I had. She truly makes you feel so comfortable.”

“I have always felt very uncomfortable with the way my labia looked. I felt very embarrassed when looking at myself and felt very insecure when my partner would look at me as well. Although my partner always stated that he loved the way I looked, I could never feel comfortable. Not only that but it was fairly painful, especially when doing exercise or wearing tight jeans. When I found out about Labiaplasty, I was shocked and happy. I did not know it was possible to get rid of the excess skin. I researched for about 1 yr before I committed to it and began looking for a doctor. I found Dr. Dana Khuthaila. I went in for consultation and she and her staff were great!! They were very friendly and Dr. Khuthaila gave me her opinion on what should be done and why. I was informed and very ecstatic when I left from the consultation. Within a week I made an appointment for the procedure. It was the best decision I had ever made.”
~ @magenta122, RealSelf.com
“I’m struggling to find words sufficient to express my gratitude to Dr. Khuthalia and her team. Seriously. From the first contact with the office staff through consultation, breast augmentation and post-operative care, Dr. Khuthalia and her office staff couldn’t have been more wonderful, and the results leave me not just delighted but so glad I opted to have her do the surgery. The look is quite natural, the scar below each breast is not quite invisible but it is relatively small and fading. On the postoperative days: her pain management plan was well calculated and the post operative instructions worked exactly as she’d said they would. Nipple sensitivity is perfect, indeed, probably increased from before. And – the kicker – I’m well over 50. And transgender. And Dr. K? She’s just awesome.”
