5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Couldn't Be Happier with my Decision! - Santa Barbara, CA

I chose Dr. Lowenstein based on the excellent experience and results of a close family member. From the initial consultation to the day of my surgery, Dr. Lowenstein and his assistant, Susanne Engberg [BSN, RN], listened carefully to the outcome I hoped to achieve through surgery and addressed any and all concerns that I had. Contributing to my excellent experience were the welcoming smiles and pleasant demeanor of Dr. Lowenstein's staff at the front desk. Whether in person or over the telephone, I was always greeted warmly and my question/s addressed promptly. Thank you Saira and Ruthie! If you are considering breast augmentation and/or mastopexy as a way to enhance your appearance while maintaining a natural and beautiful look, I highly recommend Dr. Lowenstein.

Exquisite Results, Phenomenal Experience - Santa Barbara, CA

I chose Dr Lowenstein based on his philosophy of a natural non-operative look. Results of his work are outstanding. With my surgery and results, I had an excellent experience. I am so pleased that I chose Dr. Adam Lowenstein as my surgeon because not only are my results exquisite but the entire experience from day one was phenomenal. Each member at his practice; from the front desk receptionists, to the RN nurse, the anesthesiologist, and Dr. Lowenstein made me feel like I was their number one priority. My expectations were to fulfill the upmost natural appearance and my results are so much more than what I ever could have imagined. Thank you so much Dr. Lowenstein for giving me my missing piece of confidence, I feel truly blessed. Kristy

After interviewing plastic surgeons in the Midwest, Northern and Southern California, Dr. Adam Lowenstein was my first choice. With my surgery a month behind me, I'm confident he is the plastic surgeon that my family, friends and I will use in the future. He is very technical/cutting edge, but has super strong communication skills so he explains considerations and procedures clearly/concisely. His surgical approach is conservative.

What to Expect During CoolSculpting and Afterwards: my Honest, Detailed and Impartial Account. - Santa Barbara, CA

Dr. Lowenstein is courteous, honest and professional; his staff are friendly, efficient, and very accommodating. I felt at ease from the moment I walked into the office for my first consultation. Both the doctor and his on-staff nurse answered all of my medical questions honestly and without condescension. The front-office staff explained their prices and billing policies in a very straightforward manner, and worked with me to find appointment times that would fit into my busy and shifting schedule. I'm happy I chose Dr. Lowenstein's team to perform my CoolSculpting procedure!

Liposuction is one of the most common aesthetic operations performed in the United States and involves surgical removal of fat from the body.

If you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen following your liposuction procedure in Santa Barbara, you should expect to maintain your new “reset...

When treating a fat bulge with CoolSculpting in Santa Barbara, you should expect about 25% of an improvement with each treatment. Most patients find that a single treatment provides...
