5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

So Happy I Got a Tummy Tuck - Irvine, CA

Dr. Dorfman was patient and knowledgeable. He always listened. I found him to be intelligent and experienced. I think he took the time during the procedure to have a beautiful outcome. I am thrilled, even more than a year later. I am 68 and have the tummy of a twenty year old. He did many followups and I was never rushed. He even narrowed the "tuck" line so we were both happy. I know he take's great pride in his work. I would recommend him to any one who was looking for an "artist" and a plastic surgeon.
