I was referred by two friends. I was referred to Dr. Pollack and was told how wonderful he was. After my initial visit with him I felt 100% confident that he would be the doctor to perform my sugery. He took the time to answer all of my questions (and I mean all of them) and listened very carefully to what I wanted out of this process. To my suprise on the day of my surgery I was very calm and knew I was in great hands! It amazes me at what an eye he has and how talented he is! Not only is Dr. Pollack a great surgeon, he is also very well priced. I am beyond grateful with my results and would highly recommend Dr. Pollack!

Breast Implant Revision
I was referred to Dr. Pollack by a really good friend of mine who had gone to him to have a procedure done. I had a breast augmentation done about fifteen years ago with a different doctor and with two kids and time they needed to be redone. That doctor was no longer in California so as I hate randomly looking for doctors out of the yellow pages, I went to one of my girl friends who had her's done. She recommended me to Dr. Pollack raving about the quality job he had done for her. She said that you could not even see her scars and she loved the shape, size, etc. She absolutely recommended that I go and see him. I had a free consultation with him and instantly felt at ease with him and his office personnel. So I asked a ton of questions and he patiently answered all of them. He actually took the time and located my old doctor to try and find out any and all information that he could about my last surgery. Unfortunately that doctor didn't have any of my old information, but Dr. Pollack was able to still get me right around the same size of where I had wanted to be. Dr. Pollack is the best doctor that I had ever had. He's kind, patient, really knows what he is talking about and best of all is extremely talented. Another thing that I thought said a lot about him was that his entire staff speaks so highly of him and you can tell it's genuine. I can not say enough good things about Dr. Pollack. If you are ever thinking about having this done, I would give him a call and meet him for yourself. You won't regret it!!!

I had a tummy tuck with Dr. Pollack. I could not be happier with the results and overall experience. He transformed my chubby stretch marked belly into a beautiful flat belly that I can show off with confidence. Not only is he skilled as a surgeon he is also caring and compassionate. I went into whole process very nervous and scared. His staff is pleasant to deal with and everyone made me feel comfortable. From the front desk staff to the nurses and billing department, everyone was just extremely nice and professional. If you are looking for a surgeon I highly recommend Dr. Pollack.

Pollack is wonderful! Not only will he give you an honest opinion in your consult, but he will also listen to your requests and do what is most beneficial for you.

Dr. Pollack is amazing, extremely talented, and very honest in his assessment of what procedures would be beneficial for you. I had a neck lift and at the same time an upper eye lift. The results were even better than I expected. Goodbye turkey neck! A year later I opted for Sculptra for deep wrinkles around mouth and nose area. This procedure lasts, unlike Botox and the like. The results are quite good, but of course not as dramatic as a face lift which I personally didn't want. Can't say enough about Dr. Pollack. He is the best. In addition, after shopping around to recommended doctors, he also was the most affordable. What a bonus. If you are considering any cosmetic procedure, visit Dr. Pollack.

My first experience with Dr. Pollack was in 2004 when I had a face lift. I had consulted with a few surgeons but once I met Dr. Pollack, I made my choice. His thoroughness and geniune concern immediately made me comfortable. I went into the surgery feeling confident and without any hesitation. The results were exactly what I was looking for and more - years younger and very natural. It's been 7 years and I still receive compliments on how young I look. People are shocked when I tell them my age and even more shocked to learn that I've had facial surgery. When I decided to have a tummy tuck this year, there was no question that I wouldn't return to Dr. Pollack. Additionally, my husband had some facial work done by Dr. Pollack this past summer and now we look "more the same age!". My husband enjoyed the same positive experience and results. Dr. Pollack's staff also deserve recognition.....they have the same sincere concern of the patient's well being. They are friendly, warm and always willing to ensure your comfort and concerns are immediately met. One word to describe Dr. Pollack.....EXCELLENT!!!
