Reconstructive, Scar resurfacing and CO2 ablative laser

Testimonial from 20 year patient, Risa Kostis

In 1999, I was in a horrific car accident that left my right cheek severely lacerated. A year after the reconstructive surgery I was referred to Dr. Seckel by Dr. Therese K. White seeking options for scar resurfacing and additional surgeries to improve the appearance of my very uneven and discolored scar. The moment I met Dr. Seckel, I was incredibly encouraged by his knowledge of his craft, his honesty and his warmth. He told us about the options we had to minimize the look of the scar and how to properly treat my scar with diligent post-care, and he used his unmatched expertise as a Doctor to make miracles happen. He and his staff took excellent care of us every time we saw him, and his surgical skills not only changed my scar, but they changed my life. I saw Dr. Seckel for a total of 3 surgeries, once a year, and I truly believe that the work he did couldn’t have been done by any other surgeon in the world. Dr. Seckel treats his patients as if they are a part of his family, and he takes that care and concern straight into the operating room and clear through the follow-up appointments. Dr. Seckel saved my life with the work he did on me. After my accident I never thought I’d gain my confidence back and had no desire to face the world. As an 18 year-old girl, I felt like my world was shattered, but because of him my scar was completely changed and minimized in a way that people have to really search to see it. I’m able to cover it up easily no with makeup with and was given a new lease on life. I still keep in touch with him today, and wouldn’t have trusted any other Doctor with these procedures. Dr. Seckel is by far one of the most gifted surgeons the world will ever know, and he cares deeply about bettering the lives of his patients. Thank you to him and his entire team for giving me a chance to live the life I was meant to live. – Risa Kostis

Breast Augmentation/ Breast Lift

From start to finish – excellent. I am thrilled with my results. I was referred to Dr. Seckel from a friend who had a breast augmentation and I am so happy for the wonderful referral. It was a positive experience from the minute I walked into his office. The staff is equally pleasant and compassionate. I highly recommend Dr. Seckel. I learned it is most important to do your homework before selecting a qualified plastic surgeon. (Rose)

I had breast augmentation surgery with Dr. S in August of 2009. After various consultations with other plastic surgeons in the area, I chose Dr. S based on his knowledge and experience (over 30 years). My results are amazing and I couldn’t be happier! Overall, I was extremely pleased with my experience. Throughout my pre-op and post-op, Dr. S answered each and every one of my questions and concerns with compassion and kindness. He is truly the BEST of the BEST!!! I see him not only as my doctor, but also as my friend. How many people can say that about their doctor? I would and do recommend him to everyone I know Smiley Face (Oscar1)

Over 20 years ago I had to have my silicone implants replaced due to a leak. At that time I was referred to Dr. Seckel. He was amazing. A few years ago, yearly mammogram showed a possible rupture. I went back to Dr. Seckel to determine if it was leaking. He welcomed me with open arms like a long lost friend. If he didn’t remember me, he could have fooled me. Thank God nothing was wrong. I still have my implants today at the age of 60 and they don’t look bad at all. I am thinking of getting my eyes done and thought the good doctor had retired. I just by chance came across this site to find he still happy and well in Concord. (Cakey)

Dr. Seckel and his staff are wonderful!! They are all super kind, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Dr. Seckel will spend as much time as needed to answer all of your questions. I felt very comfortable in his care from the moment I met him. I had a breast augmentation w/ mastopexy on Jan. 30, 2013 and I could not be any happier with the results. Dr. Seckel and Dr. Doherty are both very talented surgeons and I would highly recommend them. (Steena)

After going through a divorce, I needed a morale booster. I was very impressed at my 1st appt. He is very professional, kind, and compassionate. He strives to be the very best, and continually seeks to use the latest technology and trends for plastic surgery. My results were fabulous (I also had a blepharoplasty), as my nursing colleagues and friends can attest to. Anyone can see the quality of his surgical prowess in the before and after pictures! His staff was extremely professional, helpful, nice. Since my surgery, I have a whole new attitude-men find me irresistible! How great is that! Thank you, Dr. Seckel! Oh, he’s a perfectionist, too. (Perky!)


Dr. Seckel was recommended to me by other medical professionals! Dr. Brooke R. Seckel was recommended to me by other plastic surgeons and surgical staff. I paid for consultations with plastic surgeons prior to my choice of Dr. Seckel so as to discuss their techniques and time for convalescence. Dr. Seckel’s reputation, technique and performance are not only well earned but also difficult to describe with enough hyperbole and my complete satisfaction with his surgery. He completed a facelift on me in 2011 which vastly exceeded my expectations and restored decades of youth to my image and self-esteem. The pre- and post-operative care was seamless; the experience at Emerson Hospital superb; and everyone involved in his practice, especially his partner, Dr. Sean T. Doherty, provided me with sensitivity and attention. (VS)

As a patient of Boston Plastic Surgery Associates for many years, I’ve received aesthetician services, non surgical facial rejuvenation procedures, skin care products along with professional guidance and both long and short term recommendations. When the time came to explore more extensive work, I knew without question Dr. Brooke Seckel and Dr. Sean Doherty would be the surgeons performing the procedures. From the unhurried consultations to preparations, the Emerson Hospital stay with top notch care to recovery and follow-up visits, my care and treatment was outstanding. I experienced little downtime and barely any discomfort. The staff, Cheryl, Christine, Shauna and Kathy were patient, efficient and knowledgeable. Both doctors were professional, patient oriented and offered unbiased, realistic approaches. My results are fabulous! I highly recommend Dr. Seckel and Dr. Doherty. I’ve received many compliments that I look refreshed and rested. My results are natural and I look forward to continuing to look my best. I’m grateful for their dedication, passion and continuing pursuit of cutting edge treatments and procedures. ( ANF)

“I look so rested!” (FL)

Neck Lift

I must have met over 5 different plastic surgeons over the years, but none of them made me feel comfortable enough. Within minutes of meeting Dr. Seckel, I knew that he was the one. He is an accomplished plastic surgeon with the experience you would want your doctor to have. He is genuine and kind and takes his time. I trusted him completely after my first visit. Although I was still nervous about the procedure, meeting him and his staff, made it all that much easier to make the decision. I would honestly recommend Dr. Seckel for any plastic surgery procedure. (MLL)

Mommy Makeover- Tummy Tuck, Breast Lift and Augmentation

Dr. Brooke Seckel was amazing! I waited a long time for this surgery so when it came time I wanted to pick the absolute best doctor I could find and get the best results possible. With Dr. Seckel I did just that! I know that no other PS could have done better. He was amazing and really took his time with my surgery and it shows. It changed my life! I am sooo much more happier everyday and I no longer have to feel embarrassed of my body. All I wanted was to feel normal again and he did much more than that. I actually feel beautiful. He exceeded my expectations and I am truley grateful!!!! (M)

Liposuction-Laser Liposuction

After much internet research, and knowing I wanted slimlipo of the abdomen, I found Dr S who happens to be one of if not the leading plastic surgeon in this field. He helped develop the technology. I send several consultants photos and his response was the most informed and, in fact, kind and gracious. I then waited a year, but recontacted him, he still had my photos and was just as kind and gracious. He also did not try to talk me into a complete adominoplasty which I had no interest in – unlike other doctors. One reason for this is that I believe he really is a master of the the slimlipo technology and can achieve results others cannot. So, did he? Absolutely! I am just 2 weeks out and feel so much better – I love the way I look – I can see my “almost six pack” and already the skin tightening is better than I had expected and I understand it continues to improve over the next 3-6 months. Funny, before flying back east for the procedure, I went online again to look at before and afters to convince myself I was making the right choice and I saw a photo of someone who had to have a redo to smooth out lumps from a previous liposuction. I was so impressed I thought perhaps I should have consulted with that surgeon – and low and behold, I found out after viewing the photos it was Dr S! I am a physician and flew across country to have him do my procedure. I think or at least, hope that says it all. His staff is lovely, his associate, Dr Doherty, competent and charming as well, and the hospital staff including nurses and the anesthesia staff could not have been better. I would recommend Dr S and his associates without any hesitation.

I did a TON of research before choosing a doctor, and it was clear based on reviews, experience, and board certifications that Dr. Seckel was the right choice. I now know why Dr. Seckel is constantly named a top doctor in his field. Great experience and awesome results. Also, Dr. Seckel is extremely kind-hearted and not the least bit arrogant, which many plastic surgeons are. Don’t make a mistake and go to someone else!!! (Candice)

Microdermabrasion-Aesthetician Services

I visited Boston Plastic Surgery for a microdermabrasion. The overall experience was excellent. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, and the treatment was truly medical grade! (Sparkles)

I had Microdermabrasion and Obagi Nu Derm to remove Melasma. I give the staff a 5 star. Dr. Seckel is a true gentleman. (SF)
