A Message to Our Military from Plastic Surgeon S. Larry Schlesinger, MD, FACS:
We offer discounts on plastic surgery services to members of our Armed Forces.
I enlisted in the Army as a Private E-1, and got all the way up to Sergeant E-5 before I went to Artillery OCS. I had a great time, both as an enlisted man and as a line officer. I loved the Army, you can even say I grew up in the Army. I got off active duty to go to medical school. I graduated first in my class in medical school directly related to the maturity I gained while in the military. I gained discipline, and I definitely learned never to hand in a “C” paper to a superior officer. Even though I was accepted to Yale for my residency in surgery, I decided to go back into the Army as a career officer.
Strangely enough, during my internship at Tripler Army Medical Center, I fell in love with plastic surgery and found that I had a real knack for the aesthetic aspect of plastic surgery. Unfortunately, the military had no MOS to cover cosmetic plastic surgery. I served out my time in the Army as a flight surgeon, and got out after ten years, having had a wonderful experience and having a great deal of positivity towards the people who serve their country and towards the dependents that support them.
When you eliminate my family and the sports that I love, I guess plastic surgery and the military are two areas I have the greatest respect and aloha for. Giving a discount to military and dependents is my small way of giving back for all the military did for me.
I am also a member of Iraqstar and have done free surgeries on military men who have had facial injuries while being deployed. You can read about my contribution to our servicemen and women here in the Honolulu Star Bulletin.
I struggled with gynecomastia my whole life and the procedure to get it removed went better than I ever imaged. My confidence and overall demeanor skyrocketed and I feel like a brand new person. Dr. Schlesinger and his staff were so kind, understanding, and respectful during the whole process and I strongly recommend going with them for whatever procedure you may be looking for. My only regret is not getting it done sooner!
Being a man and having gynecomastia can be very embarrassing but his office and staff always made me feel very comfortable about the procedure that I needed to have done. It’s been a few months since my surgery and I’m very happy with the results, I can no longer feel embarrassed about taking off my shirt or going to the beach. The psychological relief has made all the difference in the world. Thank you Dr Schlesinger.
I got gynecomastia surgery from Dr. Schlesinger in August and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. If you are still debating on if you should do it or not, look no further! Dr Schlesinger is your guy.
I cannot begin to express my satisfaction with the entire staff at Dr. Schlesinger’s office. From the very first consultation to our last post-op appointment, they have been nothing but courteous, professional, and helpful throughout the entire process. From keeping in contact, to answering all of our questions promptly, and following up with us post surgery, they are by far one of the best medical staff we had the pleasure of working with.
Dr. Schlesinger and his staff are true professionals. I had Gynecomastia surgery 2 weeks ago and I cannot be anymore happy with the results (fast and painless). I highly recommend him for anyone looking to have this procedure.
Dr. Larry is honestly the best when it comes to gynocomastia surgery for men! From the consultation to the post-op follow ups, he and his staff have been nothing but helpful and professional. The surgery itself was quick and easy, with a short downtime afterward. You can’t beat the results!
Anyone considering gynecomastia surgery should go to Dr. Schlesinger. The process is not as bad as you would imagine, and the staff is amazing. I am very happy with my surgery.
