After years of thorough consideration and research, i opted for aesthetic surgery with Dr B. I have been exposed to the work of various physicians and no other work, came close to Dr B's meticulous expertise, professional demeanor and above all exquisite results. I highly recommend Dr B. He is genuinely compassionate to the needs of his patients. I confirm this firsthand, He is devout to your safety, wellbeing and dedicated to help you achieve your realistic aesthetic goals. Dr B gave me the peace of mind i needed to make my informed decision. I felt safe in his hands, pre-surgery, throughout the procedure and post recovery. After meeting Dr B, I could not see myself going through this process elsewhere. I am forever grateful for Dr. B, the physician that made all of the difference.

staff very friendly/you can easily trust Dr. he kept checking on me the same day of surgery which made me feel safe but my consultant is stupid. she quoted me with breast lift but Dr said I didn't need it so she stole me some money:-/

Dr. Bruno gave me my body back after a full-term twin pregnancy. He listened to what I wanted and helped me to make informed and smart decisions to ensure I had my desired outcome.

After working in the field of plastic surgery for many years, I chose Dr Bruno to do my breast augmentation and liposuction because he was the surgeon that consistently had excellent surgical outcomes with minimal discomfort. All the employees that worked with him in the operating room and in the office also chose him as their surgeon because they knew he was honest, ethical, safe and professional. I will continue to send my friends and family to him for many years to come.

Dr. Bruno was very knowledgable in all procedures. You could tell from the first visit that he knew what I was looking for and made me feel very comfortable in my decision of what I wanted. Honest about what would work and not work for my own benefit. Office visits were always timely which is huge for me. My time is very busy. Assurance of surgery and post opt and recovery was very good. Call backs to check on you. Caring attitude of his patients. After first appt. I had scheduled surgery.

I was so nervous about the decision to have breast implants. But Dr. Bruno and his staff were so professional. They made it easy, affordable, and very comfortable. I was so pleased with the results! It was exactly what I wanted! If you are considering this, I highly recommend Dr. Bruno. :)

I gave 5 stars because my whole experience was great! I probably checked out 15 different doctors before choosing Dr. Bruno. I even met with another doctor in his office, but was not too thrilled with that doctor when the consultant recomended Dr. Bruno, who did her own surgery I jumped at the chance. It went great. I opted for a breast lift w/ implant. He made me feel comfortble. Answered all my questions and didn't try to make me get a bigger implant than what was ideal for me. I am beyond happy with my results. Inaddition, the cost was the best around! I am from the Valencia, Ca area and no one could come close.

Dr. Bruno is an amazing dr. He listins to what you want. He understands that there are many questions that need to be answserd and he answers them to his best. He is avaliable to get ahold of during the nites and weeknds. He called me after the procedure and asked me many times how i was feeling. He has amazing work for the price he charges. Mine look very natural and the scarring is very small, with hybrisil that he recommened it cleared up my scars to almost be invisable. he is a great dr i would refer all my friends to him.

AMAZING! I would recommend Dr. Bruno to anyone who seeks PS. My experience with Dr.Bruno was excellent from the day of my consultation until post op. I was referred to Dr.B by a girlfriend who had done breast augmentation with Dr.B and looked incredible. Dr. Bruno is professional, patient, and kind. He will not rush you out of his office and will answer all your questions. He will give you a realistic goal and makes suggestions on how to proceed. The decision will ultimately be up to you. He will not push you to make a decision right away and gives you the comfort that you need throughout the entire process. Dr. Bruno will follow-up with you post surgery. The entire staff at his office is super friendly and attentive. I cannot say enough great things about Dr.B and his staff. This is my 5th month post op and I love my results. I am so happy I found Dr. Bruno.

The pain was so worth every bit of it! if i could i would do it all over again! if i was to get anything else done i would 100% go back to Dr Bruno! Thank You Dr Bruno

I have absolutely no complaints. At first I was very nervous, it was my first procedure but DR Bruno explained the procedure to me the befores the afters and the right nows and it eased me big time. I am beyond satisfied with the results.. so many compliments and best part of it all that although very noticeably different it looks so natural. He is seriously awesome. The after post-op appts have made it a lot more comforting as well as he sees me and makes sure everything is as should.

I researched numerous Dr.'s in Los Angeles and am thrilled I chose Dr. B. His calm, professional demeanor put me at ease. His portfolio is outstanding. I received a team with Dr. B, support, details, step by step, honest feedback and a skilled Dr. that cares about his patients results. Dr. B doesn't pressure you, nor does he give you any unrealistic expectations.
Posted by Carrie from CA
Dr. B is an AMAZING plastic surgeon. He performed a breast lift with an augmentation on my breasts one month ago, and the results are better than I ever imagined. The scarring is MINIMAL... much better than other doctor's best "after shot" photos that I viewed during consultations. The whole process from beginning to end has been so easy. The scheduling was a breeze thanks to Dr. B's fabulous office staff. The surgery was quick and after 24 hours, I did not need any pain medication anymore. After a few short days I was back to work with new full breasts that already looked COMPLETELY NATURAL! Dr. B's bedside manner is amazing. He is kind, gentle, and calming, yet strong and confident all at the same time. And after seeing the transformation of my breasts, I can say that he is truly an artist and a perfectionist! If you have any doubts about these procedures as I did, be assured that there is no need to fear when in the hands of Dr. B. I consider myself lucky and blessed for selecting Dr. B as my plastic surgeon!

I had a tummy tuck about 7 weeks ago and my results are amazing. Dr. B is an amazing doctor.

Two of my girlfriends had breast augmentation with Dr B. They had incredible results. Their implants looked so natural that I decided to have a consultation with Dr B as well. I felt very comfortable and at ease with him. He answered all my questions thoroughly(and I had a list prepared). I also went to 8 other plastic surgeons throughout Southern California to do consultations. I wanted to make sure I picked the best doctor. In the end, I decided on Dr B- primarily because my girlfriends had such fantastic results but also because I felt the most comfortable with him. I'm five months post surgery and I love my new breasts. They look natural and perfectly porportionate to my body. I've recommended Dr B to all my friends interested in breast implants. I wouldn't trust anyone else.

I’ve been going to Dr. Bruno over the last few years for botox and juviderm and he is hands down the best that I’ve been to for these procedures and at 40, I’ve been to quite a few! The difference with him, is that he has an incredible eye for knowing exactly where and how much to inject so that the lines are removed and volume is added in all the right places, yet I don’t look all botox and juvied out like so many other women. No one ever guesses my age. I look NATURALLY younger, and my close girlfriends who do botox and fillers can attest to this, as many have commented that they can usually tell when someone has this work done, but can’t tell on me; that I just look naturally younger and wrinkle-free. Needless to say, I’ve converted many others over to him and they’re all obsessed with him now too. Some have now gotten lasers and even plastic surgery and all I can say is, we love him - he does beautiful work and we’re all ecstatic that we have a great resource to go to for our anti-aging needs over the years to come. Yay for that.

I choose Dr. Bruno after I research many doctors. I went to several consultations prior my procedure and he was the most caring doctor ever. The results were excellent. Dr. Bruno helped me all the way. He has magical hands. I highly recommend dr.bruno to everyone that wants to have great results on a tummy tuck procedure. It was worth every penny of it. I loooove it!
Posted by kamjcb
I highly recommend Dr. Bruno. I met with several surgeons before meeting him. After speaking with him I had no doubt he was the right surgeon for me. He is not at all pretentious like the other Beverly Hills surgeons I met with. He really listens and spends as much time as you need explaining things. The whole process right down to how and when the scars would heal went just as he said. I am thrilled with my results. Even the anesthesiologist said he is the best and does the most beautiful work.

Dr Brunos results are amazing, I was refered by a friend that had her surgery 3 months ago. If you are looking into having a Brazilian butt lift done I will definitely recommend Dr Bruno 100%, he is an excellent surgeon.

I just had my surgery done a week ago and I am so happy with the results so far. Dr. Bruno definitely knows what he is doing and immediately trusted him to give me great results. I was not disappointed. I wanted a natural look, which he didn't fail to deliver. He made me feel comfortable and safe. Very professional and caring doctor. I am completely happy with my decision to go through the surgery and am completely happy I went with this doctor!

I can't think of anything that wasn't 100% professional of Dr. Bruno and his friendly staff. I heard about Dr. Bruno from a close friend and was told he was one of the best. So, I went to see for myself and my friend was right. Dr. Bruno is humble, polite and a master of his craft. Thanks again Doc! I can't thank Dr. Bruno and his staff enough.

After much research, I chose Dr. Bruno to perform my surgery. The time he spent explaining the procedure, my options, and his bedside manner, we're unparalleled. His humble yet extremely professional demeanor was refreshing after having seen other plastic surgeons. The staff is also extremely helpful and friendly. Absolutely a wonderful experience. Thank you Dr. Bruno! I love, love, love my results!!!!!!!

I gave 5 stars to Dr. Bruno and his staff because of how attentive and caring they were towards me. Not just only me but I would see how they would treat the other patients as well, with much respect, dignity and patience. Dr. Bruno answered all of my questions as well as the staff, from the front office, manager, nurses, anesthesiologist etc. They made me feel at ease and comfortable which is very important. Within 24 hours of my surgery I was walking around, eating normal but at the same time resting. I'm very grateful I found such a wonderful doctor. I highly recommend him to anyone.If there was room to give more stars to Doctor Bruno & his staff at Beverly Hills Physicians I would.

I was referred by a friend to anothe Dr. in his practice but I choose him instead. The staff was great, I felt very confortable and confident in having this procedure done. Dr. Bruno was very attentive and precise, he was a pleasure to have as a doctor! If you have second thoughts you should not! Two thumbs up! :)

I was referred by two of Dr. Brunos patients and the experience was more then what i expected. He didnt rush me in any way. Listened to what i wanted and didnt try to convince me to go bigger like some doctors. I had the worst anxiety and Dr.Bruno has the softest energy that made all the difference!

Everything about my experience with him has been 5 star quality. I had 3 other consultations with plastic surgeons and he was the only one who I felt comfortable with. I had originally booked my surgery with a doctor from Marina Del Rey. I called and left a message on a Monday. By Thursday I did not hear from them. That same day I had a consultation scheduled with Dr. Bruno. After leaving his office I knew I found the right Doctor. When I got home I had a message from the Marina Del Rey office telling me they booked me for my surgery. I called and told them I was going somewhere else. They offered a $2000 discount, which I declined. I saw it as a blessing that they did not call right away, or else I would have never met Dr. Bruno. I would highly recommend him.

like a fool, i chose dr. bruno randomly. the surgeon i originally wanted was on vacation, and i had a limited time frame. he may excell in other surgical procedures. just not ethnic rhinoplasty. atleast not in my case.
Posted by Loveme247
Because I truly feel he was a 5..Dr Bruno didn't rush me thru the office visit, he heard me about when I was sooo afraid of what was going on with my implants (from a different surgeon). Omg! Where do I began? I contacted Dr Bruno after a breast implant and revision gone horribly bad(by another surgeon) I remember meeting some one about two years before contacting Dr B.. I had developed major fluid around my implant and was in tears...I remembered the great job he did on someone I knew..I was given Dr. Bruno's number and called right away...The person that took my call was sooooo nice and understanding as I was in tears and so afraid of this huge amount of fluid...Anyway, I finally met with Dr.Bruno..He was solo nice, professional and caring, he made me feel so comfortable and assured me that I was going to be ok..The whole experience was great,the procedure went well...Most of all I didn't have any pain after the procedure...Excellent follow up appointments...I am sooooo PLEASED with the results....I TOTALLY recommend Dr.Bruno.

I had tummy tuck surgery on March 8, 2012. I was very nervous and unsure of the procedure, but when I met Dr. Bruno on the first visit he was so calm and caring and took time to explain the whole procedure to me. He was able to give me peace of mind about going through with the surgery.

There are plastic surgeons that will do an OK job, not necessarily bad, but also not exactly what you had hoped for. Dr. Bruno is the doctor you will keep for your lifetime. Someone you will trust and grow to love. I've had plastic surgery, but nothing like what he gave me. I will NEVER go to anyone else!!!

Dr Bruno and his staff were amazing. They were all very friendly. Dr Buno had a very calm reassuring nature. He answered any questions I had and was understanding of my concerns.

When my anesthesiologist reviewed the procedure with me prior to surgery she remarked on how Dr. Bruno was the very best and of how happy I would be! I felt so safe and sure of her words! I had no fear going into surgery and afterward I felt that I was given his very best and that his personal care was sincere. There is a lot of negative information on the internet about cosmetic surgical procedures and I am so thankful to have found the best and am happy to report only positive feedback in every regard concerning Dr. Bruno!

I cannot say enough great stuff about this doctor and my experience with him. Dr Bruno is very kind, considerate, confident (but not arrogant), non-pretentious, professional, knowledgeable and experienced. I HIGHLY recommend him!!!!!! He's everything you want in a plastic surgeon and nothing you don't. I've had consultations with other plastic surgeons (before Dr.Bruno) that were so pushy, and pretentious, who had ridiculous amounts of work done themselves (I don't know how others feel about this, but it made me question that doctors judgment of what looks good/natural and what does not)and who made me so uncomfortable that I could not get out of their office fast enough. My experience with Dr. Bruno was refreshingly opposite from this. I first saw Dr Bruno for a breast augmentation.. It was a free consultation and Dr Bruno and his staff made me feel so comfortable and welcome. I really appreciated the doctor taking the time to go over everything about the implants and the procedure and for being honest with me about all aspects of it. There was no pressure to follow through with the procedure I'd just be given a consultation for...which was SO refreshing, and actually added to my comfort with Dr. Bruno and confidence in chosing him for this procedure. In sum, Dr. Bruno is as genuine as he is professional, and that's not easy to come by in this city.

Dr. Bruno is excellent. I am extremely happy with the results and the entire process. From the start, Dr. Bruno took the time to answer all my questions and explain the procedure to me. He called to check-up on me immediately after the surgery as well as periodically during the entire recovery period. His honesty and expertise guided me to choose the right procedure and get the optimum results. This doctor is all about achieving the results that work with your body and that will look great on you and nothing else. If he doesn't think it will look good, he'll tell you why and then tell you what will! I love that! Dr. Bruno wanted me to be happy with me. I feel good about myself and my confidence is booming!

Dr Bruno is honest and very thorough with his information. He advise me to drop weight off before thinking of a tummy tuck for best results. 6 months after and 20lbs lighter, I went back to Dr Bruno had my costmetic procedure done. My body is amazing. My scars are begining to fade after 2 months. But what I really enjoy is Dr Bruno's sincerity for best results and his artful technique for stitching.
