Editing this after 4 months of healing and a minor liposuction revision. I have loved working with Dr.Chopra and his team during every step of this journey. He surrounds himself with some of the most incredible staff! Everyone has been so kind and accommodating. I went in for a check up after my surgery where we discussed doing a bit more liposuction to my under chin and lower face area to polish things off. I had that surgery on November 13th and I am about a month out from that date. The results are even better than I could have imagined! My jawline and lower face are so well defined it enhances the fat transfer to my cheekbones and the buccal fat removal beautifully. I’m so happy that I am able to feel confident and comfortable in my own skin again. I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone looking in to a neck lift/liposuction/fat transfer/buccal fat removal surgery. Pre-surgery, pre-revision and updated photos will be posted below! (Last 3 photos are post revision!) I cannot say enough good things about Dr.Chopra! I am 28 and had a neck lift, buccal fat pad removal, and fat transfer done about a month ago. From the moment I went in for my consultation with him I knew I was making the right decision. I went in to the consult not really knowing which procedures would be right for me; just that I was unhappy with the way my neck and lower face looked. Dr. Chopra took the time to go over the options with me and really made me feel comfortable with what he was suggesting we do. The teams he works with at both the surgery center and his office are incredible. They made sure I felt at ease every step of the way. Dr.Chopra is an absolute artist when it comes to plastic surgery, I can tell that lot of attention goes in to every consult and procedure he performs. He goes above and beyond with client care which makes the whole experience a breeze. I am in love with my results so far and can’t wait to see what it looks like in the months to come.

Dr Chopra is a meticulous mastermind yielding amazing results! He is kind, empathetic, and attentive. After having 3 c sections and nursing over 3 years total, he transformed by body back to pre baby and eliminated my back pain from having larger breasts my entire life. My recovery has been smooth and healing exceptional. Would return for any plastic surgery needs with the utmost satisfaction. Beth PA is also incredibly kind, professional, and responsive to all needs throughout the process

Dr. Chopra was amazing!! I've had Botox One other time with a different doctor and it was a bit painful. This time with Dr.Chopra he was so precise and quick that I barely felt anything.He uses a special tiny Japanese needle that you can barely feel.He is also humorous and has amazing manners, will definitely be back again soon :)

Had a very good experience with Dr. Chopra and his office. Everyone was very approachable and respectful, they do a good job of making you feel comfortable and working with you to the best of your needs. They don’t try to swindle you at all or try to entice you to get more than you truly need which I truly respect.

LOVE the work Dr Karan Chopra has done on me! I’ve seen him 3x so far on procedures and he’s so attention to detail! My next procedure is a facelift and buccal fat pad removal and I am soooooo excited! I don’t see myself going to anyone else LITERALLY. I met him in Minnesota while he was in Minneapolis. Now he’s in Miami. So on my last procedure I actually traveled to him. And I will continue to do so for quality he provides. You get what you pay for I say! Thank you you’re the best

So at 53 years old, I decide after 1 pregnancy in my 20s and yo-yo dieting and finally losing 40 pounds for good, I needed a fix what no exercising could do for me. Mommy Makeover it was. Tummy tuck, breast mastopexy with augmentation I had a consult with Dr. Chopra, as I had no idea about any of it, procedure, recovery, possible restrictions or cost. I got answers at my consult, but needed to see what else was available, or not for me as well. I had a few consults for less invasive procedures and also other consults with other surgeons for Mommy Makeover. The less invasive was not the answer and I was not feeling the same with any other surgeon I met with. Dr. Chopra was the one I felt I trusted the most and his staff was wonderful all around. From the first time in the office, throughout my final consult before surgery, to the day of surgery, postop appointments and everything in between. Very responsive to questions before and after surgery. I am coming up on my one year anniversary since a Mommy Makeover and so very pleased. Dr. Chopra and staff are the best. I would recommend him to anyone for any cosmetic procedures.
