Highly Skilled Proffessional Plastic Surgeon, October 7, 2012, 3:08 pm
Reviewer: igarcia32

I have witnessed the surgerys Dr. Corbn has done. He has an eye for detail, he is an artist. His patients look amazing after the surgery. I was amazed less bleeding during the surgerys. I have worked with alot of surgeons and to see this was awesome! I am doing my clincal hours in surgical technology. If I was to have plastic surgery Dr. Corbin is the surgeon of my choice. The sterility in the operating room and the surgical instruments gets the highest ratings possible. The patient lying on the operating table is in the best hands of a highly skilled surgeon that is Dr. Corbin.

So Happy with Choosing Dr. Corbin. Well worth the travel!, September 4, 2012, 2:28 pm
Reviewer: sjsav

I am a 24 year old mother of 2 who has managed to lose over 70lbs all on my own. I have given myself the body I never dreamed I could have. Unfortunately though, when all the weight went, so did my breasts. After breast feeding 2 babies and dropping all my pre and post pregnancy weight, I had nothing left on my chest. After a year of maintaining my new sculpted body, I decided to reward myself with a breast augmentation.
I have never experienced any kind of surgery before, so when I decided to get a breast augmentation done, I knew I had to find nothing but the best for myself. I was terrified of the whole procedure and not really sure what I was getting myself into. Everything from deciding on the right size, the anaesthesia, recovery, all the way to choosing the right pain medication was stressful and uncharted territory for me.
I sent my pictures to Dr. Corbin, which he responded very quickly and suggested I would need a lift as well as the implants. With this requires a longer operation and more recovery, not something I had even considered. I was fortunate enough to have my first consultation with Dr. Corbin in Canada, where he explained the whole procedure to me. He informed me of all the possible risks, the healing process and answered all of my questions. I knew right away this was someone who was extremely knowledgeable and I trusted him to do the operation on me. Shortly after, I booked my appointment and my flight to California. I arrived in California on a Wednesday afternoon where I had my pre-operation appointment at the Brea Office. The staff there was so friendly and patient with me as I tried on several different sizes before finally deciding on 375cc implants. With Dr. Corbin’s expertise, he suggested using a smaller implant on my left side due to uneven breasts. I left the office feeling confident that I had made the right choice. My surgery was the next morning (Thursday). I arrived at the office where, again the staff went over the sizing I had chose, and made me feel so comfortable despite my fear of the fast approaching operation. Once in the operation room, Dr. Corbin and his staff had me feeling so calm and comfortable. After the operation, I have had very minimal swelling, no noticeable bruising and over the top results!
I am so thrilled with how my breasts have turned out. Everything from the placement, sizing and minimal scaring has been above and beyond my expectations. I truly appreciate that Dr. Corbin took into consideration my young age, and wanted to make sure I had very little/no scarring left on me. He also considered the fact that I had flown in to see him, and made sure to make my sutures dissolvable as I would not be able to return to his office to have them removed. The few remaining days I had in California for recovery went extremely well, with daily check ups from Dr. Corbin and his staff on how my recovery was going and again, answered all my questions that I had.
I want to send a HUGE thank you to Dr. Corbin and his staff for making this experience beyond satisfaction and more importantly giving me results that exceeded my already high expectations. I would recommend Dr. Corbin to anyone and everyone. Because of his expertise, I am so proud and confident to show who I am!

Successful male breast reduction.....love Dr. Corbin :), April 7, 2011, 3:11 pm
Reviewer: happyguy

My name is Dino and i was very self conscious about having male breasts, this medical condition made it hard for me to date and take my shirt off in public. Dr. Corbin made a tiny cut on my nipple and removed the breast tissue, leaving me looking and feeling like a man.I am a loyal patient of Dr. Corbin’s. The reconstructive surgery Dr.Corbin performed on me over 15 years ago gave me a better perspective of me, doctors and life. I have known Dr. Frederic Corbin for approximately 16 years and I have always respected his total dedication and the professionalism he gives to his patients.

Dr. Frederic Corbin is the son of a Physician, who instilled values, kindness and compassion to his patients over his medical career of 40 years.

Where your heart is - your treasure is found, is reflective of Dr. Corbin.

Dr. Corbin’s involvement with children needing life altering surgeries to allow for an immeasurable gift to be received from his heart is a true testament of his devotion to his profession and patient care.

While on a Charitable mission to India with Operation Smile Dr. Corbin and his team were honored by his Holiness the Dalai Lama for what he called a “Virtuous Act.” This is what physicians should be respected for. Not because they look good on paper. Physicians should be judged for what they do with their medical training and knowledge to help as many people around the world during their career as a doctor. This epitomizes the career of Dr. Corbin. He always puts his patient’s needs before his own.

Dr. Corbin is an exceptional Doctor; he is a caring and exemplary in the care of his patients. Dr. Corbin is a true asset to his patients, the medical community and humanity. It would be easy for this busy Beverly Hills plastic surgeon to stay at his office and collect huge fees for cosmetic surgeries, but Dr. Corbin gives much more of himself through charity, proving he is a kind human being, a good doctor and someone who believes in making a difference in the world.

If you are looking for a good doctor here he is. See for yourself. I will always be happy I went to Dr. Corbin based on the recommendation from my friend.

Amazing Plastic Surgeon, Highly recommend, April 7, 2011, 12:24 pm
Reviewer: ms90210

I am a very happy patient of Dr. Corbin’s. Over the years I have aged gracefully with a little help from the plastic surgery expert, Frederic Corbin M.D. There are a lot of plastic surgeons to choose from, but I felt the most comfortable with Dr. Corbin and his office staff. He is very straight forward, honest, experienced and knowledgeable about medicine and surgery. When I finally decided to have my eyes and nose re done, I researched more than one surgeon. I went to an ENT, another plastic surgeon and Dr. Corbin. Each consultation had something different to offer, but by far Dr. Corbin’s knowledge and experience surpassed the other consultations I went on.



My nose was a difficult surgery because I had a previous Rhinoplasty done by an ENT in Beverly Hills and I had an infection followed by an unsatisfactory result, a collapsed nostril that caused my nose to go crooked , breathing problems and major scarring where the cut was made across the outside of my nose. When I returned to the ENT to discuss revision options he suggested injecting silicone in my nose to fill in a big dent on the right side. This would have done nothing to correct the deviation of my nose and breathing problems. He wanted to refer me to another surgeon who does corrective surgery, but it was going to cost me over $7500.00!!! Even though The ENT screwed up my nose he was very eager to talk about my eyes and he had no problem using his sales pitches on me to also try and get me to do laser and other cosmetic fillers and Botox! Total smooth salesman, with a medical degree.



The other plastic surgeon I went to was young and looked good on paper, but lacked experience. He had very few before and after photos and minimal experience with corrective surgery. He advertised that he did revisions, but he didn’t have photos for me to look at or patients for me to call. Even though my first nose job was a TOTAL failure, I didn’t want to be discouraged. I also wasn’t going to get angry with the surgeon as he probably did his best, but he lacked the surgical skill to perform a surgical result that I would be happy with. I didn’t want to make the same mistake I did with my first surgeon so I asked a lot of questions, wanted to see a series of multiple revision examples and even speak to other patients who went through what I did.



I was not getting plastic surgery to change my life or make me a happier person. I am a healthy, self respecting, emotionally stable woman and plastic surgery was something I wanted to do to improve my appearance and help with the natural affects of aging.



I am very happy after my surgery with Dr. Corbin. He told me right from the start that my nose was going to be difficult because of my previous surgery, but I love the way it looks now. After my first surgery with the ENT my nose looked fake and turned up. Dr. Corbin fixed that and also improved my breathing! It is so nice to look in the mirror or at picture of myself and like the nose that is in the middle of my face. Dr. Corbin took his time and I was in the operating room for two and a half hours to create my new nose. Dr. Corbin took a piece from the back of ear to straighten and give extra support to the nose. Right after my surgery my nose didn’t hurt, but the ear was very sore. I felt anxious about how my nose was going to come out, but once Dr. Corbin removed the splint I loved my new nose. I wasn’t expecting perfection, but that is what I feel I got with Dr. Corbin. I also had laser around my eyes to get rid of some fine lines. I am also very pleased with the way my eyes look. I wouldn’t say I look younger, but I feel like I look more refreshed and natural. I don’t thing people look at me and think I have had plastic surgery. People initially asked me if I lost weight, if I changed my hair they couldn’t pinpoint what was different about me they just thought I looked better.



I will always be a grateful patient of Dr. Corbin’s and I have referred many of my friends and family to him who are also very happy with their surgeries. I am happy I took my time the second time around and went on more than one consultation. Comparing the other doctor’s photos and Dr. Corbin’s thousands of examples only made me more confident in his surgical ability.
