I emailed Dr. Kaufman's staff after my friend recommended him, reading his glowing reviews, and more importantly seeing his before/after gallery. I live overseas in London, but am from California and wanted a surgeon I could trust near Sacramento, where my parents live. Initially I thought of going to a big city like LA or SF for best results, but my friend recommended Dr. Kaufman so highly,... more
This is my 2nd breast augmentation being that I'm 5'10 155lbs 400cc looked small on me so I have 750cc hp silicon now. Although it's been 2 months in wondering why my incision are still swollen and if my breast should have dropped more?? It's been two months now and I was told they would drop and fluff so I'm wondering why they seem to be so high still and I'm worried about the incisions being... more
4 beautiful kids ( all breastfed for 1 year each), Implant exchange (this is my 2nd BA), age 40, 5'7in.
Had my 1st BA in 1999. Approx implant size was 350cc, saline, under the muscle, and Axillary incision. I believe the implants were anatomical shaped. I did not have any problems with the old implants I just wanted to go bigger with a rounder shape. I had the implant exchange/revision in... more

Professional staff & Dr. Semlacher is a wonderful plastic surgeon. I am very grateful for his abilities as a surgeon & love my look with the exchange of my implants. His care before & after are exceptional. Also , I feel much more "natural" & recovered so quickly with his care & attention to avoid any problems associated with my surgery. more
Having experienced deflated saline implants in the past, I was eager to find out about the cohesive gel implants that Dr. Kaczynski works with. My surgery was one week ago and I had no post-surgical pain, only minor discomfort during the first 3-4 days. No pain pills necessary. Healing has been very rapid, and I feel like a new lady. Knowing that these implants will last another 20-30... more
If you are looking to have a breast augmentation; I would encourage you to look elsewhere other than Dr. Semlacher. He is arrogant, apathetic, has poor communication skills, does not take the time to really understand his patients needs and desires.
I recently went to him and had a suboptimal result which should have been apparent during the procedure. He then offered up some alternatives... more
After my first breast augmentation with a different plastic surgeon I was miserable with the wrong size and profile implants, and the worst part was he condescending and arrogant when I tried to talk to him about . It took a year to find the right doctor to help me fix the problem. I found Dr. Kaufman after alot of research and several consultations with different Plastic Surgeons. When I had... more
I love my new look. Never felt more secure under a knife. In his expert reconstruction and cosmetic surgical hands I was at ease from beginning to end. I have known Dr Mabourakh as a talented breast cancer /cosmetic surgeon since the mid 90's . He has expanded his skills in the cosmetic surgery field and I would recommend him to my dearest friends. more
I currently have 300cc silicone gel implants submuscular placement. I am almost 10 months post op and have capsular contracture on the left breast and will be having a capsulectomy on Feb 13th. Since I am having surgery again I was contemplating if I should go bigger. Would 50cc's more make a difference? I just want to be a little more fuller but don't want to go up another cup size. Any... more
The staff is awesome! Dr. K also reshaped by making new pockets for my new implants,where they should have been before....I was so happy. The bruising and pain was minimal and the staff was very attentive and didn't rush me.I wanted a bigger implant,but he told me if I was to look natural,he would go as big as he could,then a year down the road,if I chose to go bigger,I could do so and look... more
I went to Doctor Yamahata after finding out I had a ruptured implant. I could only afford to have that side fixed and not only was he willing to fix the side that had ruptured, but when i developed a complication, he took quick action and monitored it throroughly. He even personally called me to make sure I was okay. He matched up the ruptured side perfectly to the other side. I am very... more
Looking to gain back what was lost from pregnancy. I had silicone implants placed in 2009 and then had a baby 2 years later...that was not planned and I deffinatly did not anticipate breastfeeding. Now my baby is 20 months and I'm looking to get a revision to have more volume. I would like to change my 400cc silicone implants to 500 or 550 cc silicone and I don't think I need a lift... more
I had my original BA 12 years ago by another Dr in Sacramento. Through the years my implants would go further and further into my armpit and I had a huge gap in my non existent cleavage.
I went to see a few doctors about having a revision and immediately booked with Dr. Kaufman! He put my mind at ease and explained exactly what he would have to do to get the results I wanted.
I am a... more
After 18 years of over muscle implants, I felt it time to replace. The results looked perfect. I made a huge mistake of not letting muscles heal a few weeks before lifting and I tore stitches on one side. more
