About Lisa Hochstein
Lisa Hochstein was Miss Swimsuit Canada in 2002 and is a former Playboy model and current reality television star. She was trained as a dancer and has a passion for health and beauty. Her training and skills in these area have served her well. Hochstein is known for her beauty having won multiple pageants and for her line of work, physical attractiveness is crucial. In 2012, she joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Miami, however the show was cancelled but has since been appearing on Bravo since 2021. Hochstein originally became famous through her magazine appearances and later through her marriage to well-known Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard “Lenny” Hochstein, also known as “Boob God”.
On television, Hochstein originally began appearing as an actress on television in 2003. However, her acting career was short lived. She appeared in the TV series, Playmakers and aside from deleted hottub scenes in Against the Ropes, she had the role of Stripper #1 in The Last Kiss. She also made appearances in Playboy magazine, including “Playboy’s Sexy Girls Next Door” and on the cover of “Playboy’s Vixens” issue. More relevant to her net worth, Lisa co-owns Hochstein Medspa with her husband Dr. Leonard “Lenny” Hochstein.
Hochstein’s Total Net Worth
Hochstein did not earn much from her acting career, including the appearances that she has made as herself. She likely earned most of her career income from her appearances and association with Playboy magazine and with The Real Housewives franchise, in which she has appeared in 48 episodes. In total, it is likely that Hochstein has earned around $4 million dollars from her career in the entertainment business and in magazines.
Of that amount, around $700,000 is expected to have been paid in business related costs. The remainder, $3.3 million, will have been taxed at a rate of around 38% as Lisa Hochstein had been residing in the state of California until later relocating to Florida. After tax, it is estimated that her career earnings are at around $2.05 million dollars, having paid $1.25 million dollars in taxes.
Lisa Hochstein increased her net worth through an advantageous marriage to Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard “Lenny” Hochstein. Hochstein’s net worth is estimated to be around $50 million and it appears that there was no prenuptial agreement signed before the marriage. In the case of a divorce, Florida divorce law stipulates and equitable distribution of assets. Considering Lisa is reportedly a co-owner of the Hochstein Medspa and has substantially popularized the business, she may legally own the equivalent of $10-15 million dollars between company shares and as part of her marriage under Florida law.
That figure also represents the value of her work on properties bought by Leonard Hochstein, including a $4.5 million 10,000 square-foot property in the Sunset Islands, Florida. While the property was purchased in 2004, and the couple officially wed in 2009, it may be the case that it is looked upon as having been part of the couple working together on the project, despite no doubt it was Leonard’s money that went into it. In any case, this such property was listed for over $10 million in 2012.
They have also purchased and built a number of other properties together some of which have had speculated valuations as high as over $30 million. The reality is however, with American states that stipulate equitable distribution of assets, the partner in the marriage who pays for the property is generally considered to own it outright and the partner who helped manage and work on the properties is considered a minority owner.
In her personal life, Lisa Hochstein has likely spent $1-2 million dollars of her career earnings but also probably possesses assets valued at around $600,000 not including investment assets. In her investments, she may have earned investment returns of $1 million dollars, not including her property development with her husband Leonard. Therefore, it is estimated that Lisa Hochstein has a net worth of around $15 million dollars.
Lisa Hochstein started her career as a model and as an actress. Later, after becoming romantically involved with Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard “Lenny” Hochstein, she married in 2009. Since then, she has grown her net worth through contribution to the marriage as a partner in real estate projects and in business, included with brand Hochstein Medspa. Between the years of 2012 and 2022, Lisa has appeared on the show The Real Housewives of Miami and is primarily known for her involvement with the show and her earlier appearances in Playboy magazine.
