5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Great Long Beach Ca DR!

Great office, staff very friendly. I went in to speak about breast augmentation and body contouring treatments. Dr.Waltzman was very helpful from the beginning to the end result. I have recommended several of my friends so far. He has several before and after pictures of his work , he listened to my concerns. I look so natural, full. I am so much more confident. ( and Happy!)

44 Years Old, 2 High-school Kids, Finally Getting BR I've Longed for

I recently found out my insurance will cover this procedure for me, and since we have met our max out of pocket for the year (hubby had a surgery) I'm going for it. I'm currently a 34j (US) and ideally would like to be a C when all is said and done. I've read and followed countless stories on RealSelf over the last year or so and I am so grateful for all of you who share your experiences...

Breast Reduction

From start to finish Dr Waltzman and his assistant Radka were very professional. They explained the procedure in detail and answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable about my decision. Dr. Waltzman called me a couple of times after my surgery to make sure I was doing okay. I would recommend this proceedure and Dr. Waltzman.

Wonderful service and comfortable experience

My entire experience from start to finish has been exceptional. Dr. Waltzman understood exactly what I was looking for and my results were even better than I expected. During my consultation, I was able to ask questions in order to fully understand the procedure. The office atmosphere is comfortable and inviting. Everyone is very friendly and professional. My operation went smoothly, Dr....

Dr. Waltzman is so AMAZING!!!! I met with many doctors to find the right surgeon for my procedure; and I have to say, he is one of the best decisions I have ever made! His work has made me feel genuinely satisfied with my body image. He really listened to me and was very patient with me during our journey. I believe the best part of our doctor/patient relationship was the fact that he made me feel like one of his colleagues. That quality is rare in doctors. Dr. Waltzman respects his patient and it really shows. I would definitely recommend Dr. Waltzman as your next cosmetic surgeon!!!

I had an amazing experience!! - Long Beach, CA

When I experienced one of my breast implants had ruptured I was devastated. I didn't have the best experience with my previous plastic surgeon so ultimately I didn't want to return to that office. I went online and found Dr. Waltzman and contacted his office. His office manager was very friendly and reassured me that everything was going to be ok. She got me in that very same day. Dr....

Very Happy with Results of my Breast Reduction Surgery - Long Beach, CA

I needed to have a breast reduction surgery, because my back was hurting a lot. Besides from that I just wasn't happy with my breast, too big and uncomfortable. I am soo very glad that I found Dr. Waltzman to do the surgery. From the first time I visited his office I had a very good feeling about it. The staff is so very friendly and professional, always make you feel welcome. Dr. Waltzman explained the whole procedure to me and answered all my questions, so I knew what to expect with my surgery. Besides from being a excellent plastic surgeon, he is also a very nice down to earth man. He made me feel very comfortable. I think he could not have done my breast reduction surgery any better, I am extremely happy with the results. My back hasn't hurt since the surgery and I am more confident and I feel better. They look great now. I would not want to change a thing about the way they look and feel now. After care is great, after surgery they called and asked how I was feeling, I had a few appointments since my surgery, and I have had no complications or pain. I will definitely recommend Dr. Waltzman and his office team to my friends and family.

Breast Reconstruction Needed After Bilateral Mastectomy - Long Beach, CA

Like the other reviewers mentioned, Dr. Waltzman is extremely professional and thorough when he consults with you. He also has a very pleasant, approachable manner and never makes you feel rushed. His office staff members, Radka and Venessa, are always genuinely warm, friendly and on top of the behind-the-scenes administrative tasks. Working with Dr. Waltzman and his office has been such a blessing during a very stressful time of life. Last but definitely not least, I am very pleased with my final results! I've been told that you can't even tell that I've undergone breast reconstruction.

25 Yr Old, No Kids, Needed Boobs!!! - Long Beach, CA

Dr. Waltzman is so kind and understanding. He really takes his time with you to explain everything and answer all your questions. I'm not sure if this is a thing, but I think he was also pretty gentle during my surgery: I was barely in any pain and I went back to work after 3 days (surgery on a Thursday, back to work Monday!) His staff are so sweet, too! I am so happy I found an amazing Dr so close to home and I will be recommending him to all my friends!
