Very Happy Patient! - Palo Alto, CA

I had filler done with Dr. Newman for the first time and I could not be more pleased with him as my cosmetic surgeon. Dr. Newman and his staff really cared about all my concerns-I was really nervous going into his office! Dr. Newman made sure i was comfortable with the injections and he really took his time to perfect my lips. I told him I wanted a more plump, fuller pout, but did not want...

5 out of 5 stars MiXto Laser


I have been a patient of Dr. Newman since 2000. Not only is his bedside manner superb but his knowledge, skill and office staff is un-surpassable. As with any procedure, there are no guaranteed perfect results. I have had excellent Mixto results, filler, botox and surgical procedures with no complications what so ever. His gift as a physician is second to none. I have been a patient of Dr...

38 Year Old, 7 Months Post Baby - Palo Alto, CA

I have had 4 treatments and lost 2 pant sizes. I am so happy with the results. There was little pain. I did experience some soreness after treatments for a few days but tolerable. I began to notice a difference after first treatment. Doctor was very nice and office staff very helpful. Well worth it and would recommend this to everyone!

Botox for TMJ

I use it to inject into masseter muscle in jaw to reduce TMJ. It works great. I have the injection every 8 months or so, and it really beats having to wear a mouth-guard every night (yuk). Also makes my jaw look a bit less "square" since it relieves the muscle build-up in my jaw muscles. Also makes chewing food easier and more pleasant (less painful). What can I say, for me - it just...

Fraxel CO2 Laser and Botox Treatments - Palo Alto, CA

I saw Dr. Newman for a Fraxel CO2 Laser treatment to minimize a facial scar and have been very pleased with his work and his staff. It was reassuring that he made sure I was comfortable and not in pain during the procedure! I have also seen him for botox injections and have been really happy with the results! Will continue to be a patient!

MixTo Treatment Great, but Unplanned Disaster Happened

I am 54, have taken excellent care of my skin since I was in my mid-20s - but even so, I had developed fine crinkly lines, more noticeable wrinkles, and even puckery skin in the areas around my mouth, under my eyes, the eyelids, and tops of cheeks. My PS had been telling me about MixTo for almost a year, so after doing as much research as I could on this, I got the treatment done on May 14,...

5 out of 5 stars SculpSure

I recommend Dr. Newman for SculpSure

Dr. Newman performed sculpsure on my stomach and I loved the results. After two kids I had some stubborn fat on my stomach and my sides that just wouldn't quite go away with my active lifestyle and this procedure was the perfect remedy. In 20 painless minutes I was already done and over the next few months began to see the stubborn areas get smaller. I would definitely recommend this procedure...

5 out of 5 stars Lip Implants

So Glad I Went With Dr. Newman!!!

I cannot begin to tell you how pleased I am with Dr. Newman and his staff. I called around asking about surgeons' experience with lip IMPLANTS and if they had before & after photos. Dr. Newman had a handful and they all looked great! He's also reasonably priced, and I honestly think he should charge more because he is just that good! The woman on the phone, Kimberly, was so nice and...

Upper Lip 5mm Silicone Implant - Palo Alto, CA

Went to Dr. James Newman in Palo Alto The procedure was fine, and i love my new lip. If anything, i wish it were bigger, but i got the maximum size. Went in for a consultation that was about 15 minutes, 1 week later had the surgery. Took about 20-30 minutes. I was scared but it went well. Swollen and lopsided during recover, could leave the house with no visible swelling about 1 week later. As...
