5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

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....

5 out of 5 stars Inspira Breast Implants


Before my BA I was a 36B (not a full B, but half of a B cup). All my bras were push-up bras as I felt my boobs were saggy. I love the way my boobs looked in a tight t-shirt with a push up bra. I felt it fit my frame better as I have whose shoulders and medium built. That is the size I wanted my boobs to look, but with no bra on. I hate bras!! I figured with the boob size I wanted, I wouldn't...

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 had a breast reduction surgery. Because my back was hurting a lot and they were too big and hanging down. the surgery took about 4 hours. Recovery time was about 2-3 weeks. After surgery I haven't had any back pain, I feel a lot better and I am more confident. They look perfect. After care was great.

Breast Reconstruction Needed After Bilateral Mastectomy - Long Beach, CA

I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of last year and underwent a bilateral mastectomy. Dr. Waltzman completed my breast reconstruction in two stages. Stage one involved expansion of the tissue (over the course of two months) in order to prepare it for the implants. Stage two involved the removal of the expanders and placement of the permanent silicone implants. I was expecting a...

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

I have always been a little self conscious about my "man chest." I finally felt like it was time to do something about it and wear all the bikinis that I had been dreaming about! I drove to 2 other consultations 25+ miles from my house before I found Dr. Waltzman (right down the street, by the way). Let me tell you, my experience at those other offices just couldn't compare to my experience...

Excessive Skin Removal - Lakewood, CA

I had barbaric surgery for weight loss, due to morbid obesity. I had a lot of lose hanging skin stomach and arms this would cause irritation. I had a abdominal plasty and brachioplasty done on the same day as an outpatient. Recovery time 3 to 4 weeks. I am very excited about the new me. I would highly recommend Dr. Waltzman.

42 Year Old Female, 10 Year Breast Cancer Survivor, Bilateral Mastectomy. Long Beach, CA

After 2 surgeons and 7 surgeries I still didn't wasn't satisfied with the results. I could only wear certain bras because they would ride up because I didn't have the natural hang of the breasts. I found Dr.Waltzman by accident. I made an appointment a few weeks later after much thought about having a 3rd surgeon and more surgery. After meeting with Dr. Waltzman, I was hooked. He knew what...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane Silk

Such a Natural Look for Lip Injection - Long Beach, CA

Dr Waltzman injected my lips with "silk" and treated the lines around my mouth with same product. He also used Dysport (like Botox) fir crows feet. It looks so natural that it is truly amazing with very very minimal bruising for the lips. Had done my lips two times previously with other providers and was never happy. Dr. Waltzman is amazing!
