It's been a week since I've gotten my breast augmentation and a minor liposuction procedure done and now I cannot look in the mirror without tears of joy streaming down my face. And it's all thanks to Dr. G's expert aesthetic eye. My confidence has amplified since I met her the first day I walked into her office to buy my first box of Latisse. She thoroughly worked with me over the years to help me finally knock out the kinks on my body that found dissatisfying. And the results exceeded my expectations. What attracted me the most is her concern for the future aesthetic beauty and well-being of her patients and puts into consideration if the procedure be beneficial as we age, or will it create complications. She could have easily pocketed thousands of dollars from me, but instead, told me not to get certain procedures done due to the high potential of dissatisfaction when my 30's-40's rolls around. She is the only surgeon that I consulted with who was blunt enough to admit this to me, along with a great deal of other helpful information. She's not your typical plastic surgeon who is ready and willing to proceed with your extensive list of surgeries in exchange for your life savings without mentioning that 10-40 years down the road the drawbacks will most likely outweigh the temporary benefits. She treats her patients with patience and premium concern and care as though they are her daughter or sister. Her office is beautiful and cozy, which makes her patients feel comfortable. It doesn't have that cold-plastic-highly-modern feel to it, as other plastic surgeons I consulted with had. What are you, as a patient, you paying for? The Picasso painting hanging on the wall of your surgeon's waiting room? The high-rent of a room located in the heart of a rich city? Or are you paying for the flawless expertise, extensive knowledge and personable care of your doctor? That's what I was looking to pay for, and those are just a few of the many great qualities that I saw in Dr. Lauren Greenberg. And on the side note, the ladies in the front desk, Patty and Marty, are warm-hearted sociable sweethearts. I highly recommend Dr. G to anyone who wants to enhance themselves and expect beautiful, natural and precise results that will leave you more than satisfied!

She changed my life for the better! Dr. G is an extremely skilled, compassionate surgeon. I had been through 2 breast augmentation and reduction surgeries. One was performed by a well known on TV beverly hills plastic surgeon who is a supposed known expert, who left me disappointed, disfigured and never even saw me after the surgery even though I tried to schedule with him. I have to say since my first appt with Dr. G, she knew what I had gone through and understood me thoroughly and took the time to understand my needs and she gave me very comprehensive advice. I thought I needed a smaller implant but she suggested I had enough breast tissue to remove implants and she was correct. I have never even in my twenties had perky nice figured breasts. She uses a technique that leaves minimal scarring and s sure to uplift the breast. Now, I take off my bra and have to stare awhile in the mirror because I can't believe the nice well shaped perky breasts in the mirror are mine. I look at them for the first time admiring them adoringly. Although I have always had a positive outlook and disposition, I cannot explain how Dr. G's skillful work has given me my life back. I can wear pretty shirts that close and do not pop open, my breasts have a beautiful uplift and I can exercise and even jog again. Life is definitely better. Dr. G has studied different techniques and explains why she uses the technique she does and explained to me exaxtly what to expect after. This experience was so vastly different than the other two I had. I would recommend my sister, my mother, a friend to Dr. G because I trust her fully and know that as a woman she cares about women, their health and has the skill to help women beccome the best they can be. She would never push a procedure on anybody and explains clearly before the outcomes that can be expected. As far as caring for her patients, she took the time on her way home from her vacation for a follow up visit with me after the holidays as my home is 2 hours away from her office. I cannot sing her praises enough. In short, yes, I highly recommend her. From California

I found Dr. Greenberg through another patient here who used her for fat transfer. I met with Dr. Greenberg originally for removal and fat transfer, but I decided to try to see how I look after the removal first. Then in 6 months or so, see how I heal and if I do want/need the fat transfer. Dr. Greenberg was patient and understanding. Completely honest and described the upside and downside of each course of action. I was impressed with her knowledge and experience. I live in LA, home to thousands of plastic surgeons but chose to travel to work with Dr. Greenberg. Why? She does many explants and was so supportive of my removal. I never felt pressured to re-implant. She is extremely up to date on all the latest research and studies and seems to genuinely love what she does. I felt so taken care of, and so trusted her to perform my surgery. I am so pleased with my results.

I had breast augmentation with fat transfer done by Dr. Greenberg and couldn't be more thrilled with the initial result. As other reviews have indicated, Dr. Greenberg is very conservative in what she's willing to do (she won't perform a procedure on you unless she feels you will get a good result), and she's also very straightforward. You know the risks going in, and she doesn't sugar coat anything. I frankly appreciated her candor, and can honestly say I would recommend her to anyone - she's just that good.

Dr. G is blunt and honest, but in a tactful way. She doesn't sugar-coat things for you in order to keep you interested in having surgery, she tells you what you should realistically expect, what the risks are, and even what she would tell you "if you were her sister". She's accessible, down-to-earth, and she'll give it to you straight. If I ever consider any other procedures, I'll definitely be going back to Dr. G!
