Dr. Bazell is a gifted top-notch plastic surgeon. With his questing mind, he is constantly studying more techniques and incorporates the most sound research and thinking into his practice. That's an incredible base, but he understands that plastic surgery starts from an esthetic perspective, and I consider him a thoughtful and observant artist AND a surgeon. That's an incredible combination of skills -- and it gave me a remarkable surgical result that exceeded any hopes or expectations we might have had. His practice reflects his high standards - I felt beautifully cared for throughout the entire process by his entire staff who are equally devoted, kind, and attentive. My husband and I enthusiastically recommend him with the highest possible praise.
Dr. Bazell is a one of a kind. His skills as a surgeon are outstanding, and his skills as a professional who cares rank amongst the highest I have ever encountered. He takes his time, calls you, discusses everything about your procedures, and makes you feel comfortable and safe. He continues his care for you for all your post surgery appointments. He is an outstanding surgeon, Doctor and person.
Dr. Gregory M. Bazell was one of the three surgeons that I interviewed with in November 2004 for breast implant revision necessitated by Type IV capsular contracture and silicone leak. Needless to say, I was concerned if I would ever find a surgeon that possessed the skill and empathy for the revision surgery that I needed. And I did!! Dr. Bazell was the only surgeon that afforded the time to educate me on the procedure and choices. He even brought in the representative from the implant company to help me make the decision. The surgery was a success and now seems so "uneventful" due to the lack of pain (one pain pill only) and speedy recovery. Most important of all, I was given the utmost care, respect and dignity by Dr. Bazell and his staff. Numerous follow up visits were extremely thorough focusing on my well being and continuous self care. I will look forward to my 6 months visit with Dr. Bazell. When searching for the "right" surgeon, I want to remind everyone that it is absolutely crucial to scrutinize their medical certification as well as assessing their interest towards your health management and overall well being. Dr. Bazell is a special person and a plastic surgeon that exhibits excellent skill and care for his patients that I would depict as a role model for his profession. Many thanks, Dr. B.

Dearest Dr. Bazell:
As I sit here writing this letter, I fully realize just how blessed that I am... There are not enough words or phrases to adequately thank you for the finest work of surgical art that you have performed on me. It was no accident or coincidence that you were the surgeon I chose to perform this elective surgery, as God does not make mistakes. You are a highly skilled plastic surgeon, blessed with a very very special gift. It is important that you now that I have a deep respect for your humility and for your pride in your profession.
It is so obvious that you possess deep convictions, commitment and passion for each and every
individual that crosses the threshold of your office. You gave me a sense of peace, calm, and confidence throughout the entire procedure, never leaving room for unanswered questions.
The greater bauty of this entire process, for myself, comes from the fact that I have meticulously planned this out for over two years, and I knew that I would have to save very carefully in an effort to see this through, as I did not fel my personal desire for self-improvement should be my wonderful husbands sole responsibility. I have worked my entire adult life for most everything that I have with absolutely no regrets..... it allows me to fully appreciate what I have been blessed with. I bleieve that I came on this journey with realistic expectations and I know that I will come away from it with complete satisfaction.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your long hours of great attention to detail during surgery and for being such a terrific listener. You have a wonderful staff of professionals that were equally dedicated to their part in my journey as well. Kristen, Sue, Jennifer and anyone else whose name I cannot remember (I will blame it on the anethesia, not age of course) a very heartfelt thanks to you for assisting in my care during the most important decision of my life, to date since marriage and childbirth. None of this could have come to fruition without each of you.
WOW... I truly am one of the most blessed women alive!!!
