Why Choose Dr. Hochman
Some people would agree that a heart and soul are far more important than what appears on their outside. But that doesn’t change the fact that your appearance affects the way you feel about yourself. It is only natural to want a more youthful face and younger looking skin. I combine an extensive background in facial plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery of the head and neck helping people with vascular malformations, effects of disease, migraines, hair restoration and a variety of disorders in order to bring you the best of all worlds.
My team and I will devote the time you need to understand the look you desire. Technology and our understanding of facial aging’s root causes are ever-improving, I now have the ability to combine multiple techniques to achieve unprecedented facial rejuvenation results.Through experience, observation and listening, I will develop a personalized plan to achieve your individual goals. If you are uncertain about surgery, there are many options both surgical and non-surgical available to improve your appearance in safe, effective ways. I can assure you that patients of all ages achieve a more defined, sculpted look which still looks like you, and best of all, can help you feel better about yourself. You will not look different, only better.
If you have thought, even casually, about improving your appearance with facial cosmetic enhancement, I would like to help you realize your dreams. The facial cosmetic surgeon you choose really does make a difference. It’s essential for you to have confidence in him. I have the respected medical credentials and expertise you need and deserve. I am double Board-certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology and limit my practice exclusively to the face/head and neck assuring the best possible outcome. I have performed thousands of major facial cosmetic surgeries and other procedures.
In 1999 I established The Facial Surgery Center, and then in 2003 created The Hemangioma Treatment Foundation and later The Hemangioma & Malformations Center. In this way I have been deeply involved in giving back to over 1,000 children from the U.S. and around the world, transforming their lives by treating the facial differences. Due to the complexity of their surgeries I have taken facial plastic and reconstructive surgery to a much higher level than my facial plastic surgery peers through the procedures necessary to correct these problems.
I opened the practice, The Migraine Treatment Center, through an appreciation for the misery of chronic and cluster migraine and facial pain sufferers. My interest in the field of migraine relief comes from personal experience with family members who suffer from chronic migraines. These migraine surgeries offer a great integration of my cosmetic skills, vast reconstructive experience, and the ability to perform highly technical surgery through small hidden incisions. I also incorporate several migraine treatments for "instant" relief into my repertoire.
Hair loss restoration has increasingly gained importance for patients. In the past, I have performed hair restoration using the “strip” method. Keeping up with best practices, with the advent of Follicular Unit Extraction and implantation and technology, I have incorporated this approach into my newest practice, The Hair Loss Treatment Center. I utilize the latest technology in addition to any other surgical/medical therapies proven to restore hair based on my assessment of your needs.
In 2008 the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), the world’s largest association of doctors in this field, presented to Dr. Hochman the AAFPRS Community Service Award which is bestowed each year to the doctor who has distinguished him/herself by “making possible free medical service to the poor in his community. It is these and many other impeccable credentials that have earned Dr. Hochman a listing as one of “The Best Doctors in America” for Facial Plastic Surgery and Reconstruction for 24 consecutive years and one of the “The Best Surgeons in America-Facial Plastic Surgery for 17 years. I was honored to have been awarded the “Order of the Palmetto” by the Governor, South Carolina’s highest civilian award, for my work with these children and their families. In 2016 I was honored that The Hemangioma Treatment Foundation and I were chosen by Charleston Regional Business Journal and the community as a Health Care Hero for the Physician of the Year. This award “honors people and organizations that have a passion for health care and compassion for patients. They go beyond the call of duty for their communities and professions.” I am currently the President of the Charleston County Medical Society.
