5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck after 115lb weight loss

I researched surgeons for HOURS and DAYS. Anywhere from the Sacramento area, to San Francisco, all the way to Salt Lake City. I interviewed and met with several of them in fact. I landed on Dr. Kauffman in Folsom CA because he was so humble (well, as humble as any plastic surgeon can be haha).....and I LOVED the way his belly buttons turned out. I also loved that his used LMA anesthesia (on my review for more info on that). I woke up with no nausea whatsoever. Another thing that I ABSOLUTELY loved, Loved loved loved is that I was never alone with him. Not in one meeting, initial consultation, follow up, etc....I was never alone in a room with him. He always had a female staff present. Probably for his sake and liability more than mine, but I so appreciated that extra step and caution. And it was probably prompted because his wife works there with him too and I'm sure she doesn't want anything going on privately lol. I mean, you've got a man seeing you naked and touching's just a wise to have another person present. In my other consultations with other surgeons, that was not the case. So final outcome/work aside.....he has my respect for that alone. I really would recommend my surgeon, and if fact already have to others who have already booked surgeries with him. It all went really great, and he has my respect, which I don't give out freely. I think he does fantastic work and I think he did fantastic work on me.

Do Your Research and Spend Time Visiting as Many Doctors as Possible - Folsom, CA

I interviewed 6 doctors before deciding to engage Dr. Kaufman. I am only one week out of a complete facelift/brow/eyes and am amazed at how well the entire process has gone. Very little trauma. I know there is still a lot of swelling but so far so good. What gave me the most confidence in Dr. Kaufman, other than his credentials, was his countenance and humility which was seen demonstrated by his entire staff. Excellent experience.

Loving my Results -Folsom, CA

I found Dr. Kaufman from a referral from a friend. He and his staff are awesome. They listened to what I wanted and delivered exactly that. I just wanted to have what I had before kids... I didn't want to be "that" mom. I had my breast procedure in January and just completed my final follow up visit. The entire experience was the best. I chose silicone implants, below the muscle. Thrilled!!!

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

FACE - Lower Facelift, Browlift, Lower Eyes and Laser Resurfacing - Folsom, CA

I saw three board-certified plastic surgeons and chose Dr. Kaufman. He took his time to show me why he should be my surgeon. He showed me two albums filled with the results of just facelifts. He showed the differences of choosing or not choosing certain procedures. The results are hard to argue with.

Well It's DONE! - Folsom, CA

I will update my review as my final result has healed over time.

Amazing Work - Folsom, CA

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...

Couldn't Be Happier with my Results! - Folsom, CA

I met with Dr. Kaufman and his staff after seeing his results on another patient. I was impressed with the quality of his work. They were very good about answering all of my questions and were accomodating to my needs as I was traveling from 2 hours away for visits. I am so grateful to Dr. Kaufman and his staff, it truly was a positive, life changing experience for me.

4 Little Places Liposuction Can Make a Big Difference

Although some non-invasive body contouring procedures are becoming more popular, liposuction still carries some advantages over CoolSculpting® and similar nonsurgical alternatives. This is primarily because the effectiveness of lipo is not limited to the stomach, hips and thighs but can produce beautiful, dramatic results in smaller (and sometimes surprising) places elsewhere on the body. 1. Under the Chin When excess fat deposits settle under the chin, the dreaded double...
