"Dr. Hakimi is terrific, explains procedure well. Happy with results..the staff are great!"



"Chatting with Dr. HAKIMI about what would make me look like I feel, not 75!, he suggested fat injections and a peel on my face. That was last month and I’m healed and happy. Family and friends don’t know anything but say how great I’m looking. ??"



"I went in for a consultation in October 2022 wanting a inner thigh lift, breast lift, and liposuction on my outer thighs. I talked to the doctor he explained everything in great detail to the point I started second guessing my decision on the inner thigh lift but then I decided to just do it. When I tell you after just 6weeks in I’m so happy with my results and my decision. He did such an awesome job and made me feel comfortable through the entire process. The office staff have also been wonderful to work with so I just wanna say thanks so much I’m eternally grateful and would highly recommend Dr. Hakimi plastic sx."

Teofana answers the millions of question I have and truly cares about the well-being of the patients. She even encourages you reach out to her at anytime and is a perfect client coordinator. Leading up to the surgery, I had my concerns and she answered every bit of them in a timely manner. Dr. Hakimi assured me that my surgery will be the one I've been dreaming about as a kid. He's one of the most gentle and knowledgeable doctors, explaining the whole customized procedure in detail. Just finished up with the surgery and looking forward to seeing the results. Happy to have found Hakimi plastic surgery to start the year!"
