This is a glowing recommendation. I asked Dr. Antell for something difficult, to remove all sagging skin from my neck, smooth my jaw line if possible and improve my eyes, all without it being noticeable to anyone that anything had been done. He accomplished exactly what I asked in subtle, artful and what I consider remarkable ways. He is very skilled.
I came to him with my ideas and he persuaded me to change them a bit to a solution he thought would be better. He was right. There is much art to this profession. Dr. Antell knows what to do and does it well. He has an artist's touch.
I am wonderfully pleased with the results. I told him that I feel liberated. I no longer have to wear eye make-up to feel presentable and I wear scoop necks happily.
It's a big decision to let someone change our appearance and vital to find the right person to do it. I understand why Dr. Antell has operated on many TV anchors.
He is also kind, full of good humor and concerned for his patients' welfare. He is very positive. He is a pleasure. Wonderful people work with him. His anesthesiologist and nurses are highly skilled and caring. The office director and staff are helpful, accommodating and caring. He and they make the process easy.
I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Antell.

Dr. Antell is perfect!
He is classy and very relaxed, knows how to listen and deliver the best possible results. He knows how to retain his patients' natural beauty. I'm thrilled with
how I look! My sister also used Dr. Antell and she loves her results, too.
It was seamless and I didn't look any different. But out of the mouth of babes, my 7 year old granddaughter said, GiGi, you look so young! That's what I wanted to hear!!
Thank you, Dr. Antell. You won't ever go wrong using this doctor!!

I recently had plastic surgery to successfully remove a large tumor on the back of my skull. I met with 4 prominent plastic surgeons in New York City before I decided on Dr. Antell to perform my surgery.
I must say, I never expected or experienced this caliber of attention and professionalism from a top rated NYC doctor and staff. It’s very unusual to have found such a renowned plastic surgeon with both the talent and bedside manner on the level of Dr. Antell.

Hey so, I recently just had a chin Implant with Dr Antell, He is the best plastic surgeon out their to do this procedure. I am now 8 days in and I look so much better and the results are amazing and they are only going to get better as time goes on so I can't wait!!!!! He won't only make you look amazing but he will actually give you a real result where you can tell a difference. He will give a chin that balances out your face. The staff and everyone is so friendly, you can go up to them with any questions or concerns and they will answer them. The Nurse Michelle is amazing she really takes care of the patient. I was a mess and really nervous the day of surgery but Michelle calmed me down and everything went perfect as planned. If you are looking to get a chin implant Dr Antell is the right choice not only is he an amazing surgeon but he has a great bedside manner!!! more »

On November 16th, 2020 I had my lower eyelids and neck operated on by Dr. Antell. I am very happy with my results. I did not have to take any pain medicine after the surgery because I had no pain. You just have to make sure to take your prescribed antibiotics and do what the doctor tells you to do after the surgery. My Z neck surgery is healing very fast and I'm already delighted with how it's looking. My under eyelids are looking better and better each passing day as well. The key is to totally rest up the first two days after surgery and do exactly what the doctor tells you to do. The recovery is not hard but you do have to be patient. The recovery for my neck was very easy. The under eye lid recovery is also not difficult as well but does take about two weeks for the bruising and swelling to go down. I really had no pain after the surgeries and did not need to take any pain medicine. more »

I discovered Dr Antell through a television interview so I admit to being somewhat intimidated at the prospect of meeting this renowned surgeon. I needn’t have fretted as patients are swathed in a caring cocoon spun by everyone inside this practice. The office is immaculate while the professional staff inspires confidence shaped by impeccable training. I put my trust in Dr Antell’s judgement in deciding on facelift and eyelift procedures as I allowed myself to embrace the comfort that was being offered to me. In all honesty my recovery never required prescription pain relief. Fifteen years have passed since my procedures and people still marvel that I am in my 70’s. more »

As a 71 year old woman, I´ve had many experiences with doctors. Sometimes I´m the patient and sometimes I´ve accompanied a loved one. Practically all of my experiences have been positive, but none were better than those with plastic surgeon Darrick Antell.
Dr. Antell is such a warm, personable man that I was surprised when I woke after my operation to hear him directing staff (regarding something about ice) with a forthright, nearly stern voice. I smiled to myself and realized Dr. Antell works with 100% confidence and the expectation of perfection from his team.
I trust Dr. Antell because he´s had decades of valuable experience, he practices in the New York City hub of learning, and he´s a trained dentist. Also clear to me is Dr. Antellś artistic skill; this is a crucial component of what makes him special. Many people can be medically educated, but I see the aesthetic of a sculptor in Dr. Antell´s hands.

Where do I begin.. Our family has been fortunate to have used Dr. Antell's plastic surgery expertise on three separate occasions.

My son (when eight years old) had shattered his nose
with a terrible fall down the stairs. His nose needed to be rebuilt and recontoured immediately. Not only did Dr. Antell make himself available in what was an emergency timeframe, but he was fabulous in calming my son and performing what resulted in an amazing result.

The second occasion that Dr. Antell's expertise was required occurred when I had been diagnosed with skin cancer (melanoma). After the surgical removal of the cancer by my dermatologist, I chose to have Dr. Antell remove further borders and perform plastic surgery to improve the healing and aesthetics of the wound. While completely rudimentary for someone of Dr. Antell's expertise and training, it was a great outcome. His calm demeanor helped ease what was a very alarming diagnosis for me.

Finally my wife made the decision to have her eyelids done coupled with a mini face lift. Dr. Antell's expertise became evident once all was healed post surgery. The result could not have looked more natural and overall my wife was thrilled. She looks naturally younger and refreshed. That expertise requires subtlety, we all have seen and know of plastic surgery that misses that mark. Bravo Dr. Antell

I have helped speed the recovery for hundreds of Dr Antell’s patients over the last 10 years. I’ve personally seen his superperb work. His attention to details is most impressive....and is evident in his results. He has rescued many patients from sub optimal face lifts, rhinoplasties and breast surgeries from less experienced surgeons. It’s obvious why he is the go to doctor. more »

My experience with Dr. Antell was excellent. I was looking for a surgeon to remove my breast implants. My original doctor (who is out of state and retired) was wonderful and I hoped to find a replacement in the city who was just as good as he was. I choose Dr. Antell because of his experience and his bedside manner. After my consultation, I felt confident having him as my doctor and grateful he took his time to answer all my questions and discuss my options.
Overall, I am very happy with the surgery and results. Not knowing anyone in the city to ask for recommendations I was on my own to find someone. I feel I chose the best doctor and I highly recommend. The office staff and nurses are also wonderful, even the anesthesiologist for my procedure. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and for that I am grateful to Dr. Antell and his staff.

The staff were very welcoming and informative along with Dr.Antell himself. I had gone in for a breast implant explant procedure and was a bit nervous because I’ve felt rushed before with a different plastic surgeon. Over time my breasts had changed and grown larger so the implants no longer fit my frame. The procedure was done under local anesthesia. It was pretty quick and fairly painless (the needle pokes to numb the area stung a bit but totally bearable). Overall experience was great and during the initial consultation they showed me many reference photos for me to look at to have a decent idea of what to expect. I don’t like writing reviews but wanted to this time to alleviate some doubts or nervousness for others seeking some answers (reading online I was scared my chest would turn to pancakes which wasn’t the case). Hope this review helps! They are patient, not pushy, and give you realistic expectations. Aftercare is great too :) more »

I went to Dr. Antell for a scar revision procedure on my nose which other doctors hadn't been able to effectively treat. His team was super responsive, even with the pandemic going on, and got me a pre-check within the hour. The nurses and front staff are very kind and friendly, I was immediately at ease upon going in. Dr. Antell himself is very knowledgeable and thorough, and he walked me through every step of the procedure and every stage of healing. I was absolutely confident in his abilities and the results he would achieve. I now feel much better now and would definitely visit Dr. Antell in the future. more »

I saw Dr. Antell due to suffering a badly fractured nose as a result of an accident. I had my rhinoplasty almost 3 weeks ago and I couldn't be happier with the results. Not only does my nose look better than it did prior to the accident, but Dr. Antell, his clinical staff, and his administrative staff are all very caring, professional, and responsive. Highly recommend. more »

Dr Antell and his staff are very polite and friendly. His office is meticulously clean and comfortable. I recently seen him for a lipoma on my face. He is a highly skilled and talented surgeon that made the procedure stress free and with a minimal scar that is continuing to fade every day . I absolutely made the right choice choosing Dr Antell more »

TO DR, ANTELL, ALL HIS PATIENTS ARE “CELEBRITIES”!
Although not on television myself, I have several friends who are and it is an open secret that most of them entrust their appearance to Dr
. Antell! I too, had some areas of concern namely, a slight droopiness of my upper eyelids and my jawline, which I consulted him about. He suggested I would benefit from upper blepharoplasty and rhytidectomy and so I went ahead. The whole experience was fantastic, from beginning to end. The front office staff, the anaesthetist, the O R room nurse and of course, the wonderful Doctor, whose surgical skills are superb, honed over many years, coupled with an artist’s eye and the best bedside manner imaginable! The procedure was carried out in his spotless and relaxing operating rooms - so much nicer than those of even the best hospital! I had hardly any pain at all afterwards. In two weeks time, I had healed so well and no one could tell I had anything done.. I look and feel fantastic!! Thank you! more »

My earlobes became stretched after my two young children grabbed one too many times at shiny earrings. One morning while putting on a scarf, one of my earlobes tore through (and the other was so stretched, it was only a matter of time). Dr. Antell was able to see me same-day and my earlobe repair appointment was probably under an hour, all said. His team was reassuring and professional. He walked me through the procedure before, gave detailed after care instructions and numbed my ears so I wouldn't be in pain. We then went to his onsite outpatient surgery suite. Of course I appreciated appreciated the clinical expertise throughout, and as a bonus, his kind, conversational demeanor during the procedure helped ease my anxiety and made the time fly. About 10 days later, I came back to have my stitches removed and I'm healing well. I highly recommend Dr. Antell and his team. And as I now joke, even though I wasn't expecting to need this, I now have "Park Avenue earlobes!" more »
