Botched Surgery, February 2, 2011, 12:55 pm
Reviewer: ktrotter


Simply put, my body looked better before my surgery! I have one breast higher than the other, this is after a corrective surgery (Dr Kaufman performed initial and corrective surgery)after the initial augmentation. After my abdominalplasty my belly button healed the size of a half dollar with major scarring all around it(my belly button was perfect before surgery)! My hips and or "saddle bags" are so uneven and distorted I cannot wear the proper size pants. As for my upper and lower eye lift the scars on my eyelids are very jagged not straight at all. I requested that Dr Kaufman contribute to paying to get my body in some kind of acceptable way, he did not. If I could post before and after picture here I would. I feel he convinced me to do too many procedures at once and his expertise was rushed and failed. Not only is my body distorted, emotionally it was very drainig. It has been two years and I am just getting the emotional strength to have Dr Kaufman's botched surgery corrected.

The genius who is Dr. David Kaufman, January 9, 2008, 11:37 am
Reviewer: melaska

Hi everyone! My facelift was the beginning of my plastics journey after losing 153 lbs after gastric bypass. I searched high & low for a surgeon I could trust with this very important procedure. If you know me, you'd know that it takes me forever and a day to choose whatever I'm researching. It took me a month to finally pick out a digital camera! lol I had several places in Calilfornia I could've gone to -(Palm Springs (one of the plastics capitals!), San Diego, Mexico & Sacramento area). I live in a remote town in Alaska...even had a plastics consult in Anchorage but I didn't feel the 'click'. I'm sure he was a good surgeon and all but I wanted to 'hear that click!' After a long search I chose Dr. David Kaufman. I found him through obesityhelp.com...visited his website www.thenaturalresult.com & phoned his office. A gal in the office suggested I email him. I thought "Yeah, right, like some famous plastic surgeon is going to take the time out of his busy schedule to call me!" I emailed him, attached some pics & as an afterthought, gave him my home phone. It wasn't but an hour or so later that I get a call from him! I was flabbergasted. He was very kind...not pushy at all and was very patient with all my emails & questions that I bombarded him with during the month or so of waiting. I'm a professional 'nervous nellie' so he had a lot to work with! Finally went for the initial consult and lo and behold - "CLICK"!!! Yep, that's the one! His website is rightly named...www.thenaturalresult.com - my results are VERY natural - I do NOT have that awful 'pulled or windblown' look that you see so much. His prices are very reasonable...he has a surgical center in his office - it looks & feels just like a hospital OR. The whole office is so supportive & go out of their way to help. They even came to get me the morning of surgery since my daughter had to work! I felt 'safe' and cared for. He called me a couple of times post op to make sure I was doing ok. I also really love the charity work he & his office perform...I was looking at the picture album and was so amazed at a picture of a child with a deformed hand. His thumb was bent all the way backward, attached to his arm & the rest of the fingers all mangled. The post-op picture looked so normal! I'm one of his patient stories - if you want to read it, go to http://www.afterobesity.com/stories/melinda.cfm I'll be going to him in February of 2008 for a breast lift & arms then the legs in the Spring. I also have several albums on makemeheal if you'd like to see them by clicking on my profile. If you are searching for a doctor - I highly recommend Dr. David Kaufman...I'm so glad I came over 3,000 miles to get these 'natural results'! Melinda

Dr. Kaufman, June 11, 2007, 5:23 pm
Reviewer: kimberly07

Dr. Kaufman and his staff are wonderful. My BA & BL surgery went very well. The healing process has been uneventful in a good way. The pre and post op instuctions they gave me really helped my recovery along. I liked the fact that they provided the post-op garment, strap, gauze, and silicone tape for scars. It was and continues to be a good experience and I would recommend him and his office to anyone!

Well Worth Flying Around the World!!, February 1, 2007, 7:58 pm
Reviewer: ShrinkingShabby

As far as I'm concerned, this is THE practice to go to for all your plastic surgery needs, especially for those who have lost a significant amount of weight. I, personally, have flown across country 3 times to have my surgeries, and am preparing to do it again in March. The office staff are extremely welcoming and friendly, minus the pretentious attitude of many other offices. They actually LOVE their jobs and want to help patients achieve their goals. The surgeon went to Harvard med school and trained at Stanford. He is extremely thoughtful and creates a warm and comfortable atmosphere. He is especially great at listening to his patient's. His post-operative care is top notch and attentive. Most importantly however, the results he has helped me to achieve through 3 surgeries, after losing 187 pounds, is simply awe-inspiring!! Incision sites are masterfully created and healing was a breeze without complication. I can't say enough about this guy!!
