5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Repair

Love the Results! - San Diego, CA

Dr Larry Pollack is exceptionally skilled, caring and professional. I would be reluctant to put my face or skin in the hands of any other board certified doctor. Dr. Pollack does not push you into procedures for the sake of making $$$. He expects his clients to initiate needs or interests and he responds with suggestions and approaches that are most appropriate, vs. most expensive. He is very proud of his work and the results that please his patients. I could go on to sing his praises and to acknowledge his abilities! Hi staff are very kind and friendly--they work as a team to provide the highest quality service--always smiling and helpful. Feel free to contact me if you are considering procedures in the San Diego region... He's your man! Rae

Countdown to My Facelift and Upper/Lower Lid Lift - San Diego, CA

My Doctor is incredible. He performed my breast reduction and tummy tuck in 2016. I had an excellent experience and knew that I wanted him to perform my facelift. He is a great partner in your recovery meaning he can only do so much and you must do everything he tells you to do for the best results. If you respect that then I don't think there's anything that you can't do when you work together.

My Skin Looks Amazing!

I just finished 3 facial peels with Marci Pastel, licensed aesthetician at Del Mar Plastic Surgery. The peels were done 30 days apart and I can't say how amazing my skin looks and feels! I had a photo taken recently with my cousin who is 20 years younger than I am. Our skin looks exactly the same! I was floored and so very happy! Marci is incredible. She initially spent a lot of time...

27, 3 Kids, 110lb, 5'6" 300cc silicone - San Diego, CA

After having three kids, my breasts are small and deflated. I just finished breastfeeding about a month ago, and I'm finally viewing a breast augmentation as a near-future reality rather than a distant desire. I'm currently between 34A and 32B (though I certainly don't think they look like B's.) I've contacted a local PS and asked lots of questions. I've compiled an extensive list of "wish...

33yo, Breastfed 1 Baby, 5'1", 114lbs - La Jolla, CA

I met with Dr. Larry Pollack and his staff is very friendly. He was referred to me by my Primary Care Provider, whom I have grown to trust. Dr. Pollack's staff also responds immediately to my questions/emails, which an anxious person like myself greatly appreciates.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Male Full Face Lift Plus Arm Lift - San Diego, CA

My Dr. Was fantastic! Also just as important, his support team is great, especially Kate. Really satisfied with my arms and face and neck. I will do my 'mommy makeover' (belly, love handles, tuck) with him in Jan. I have had teeth done, (full upper and lower implants) and hair restoration with two other Dr's, and Dr. Pollack and Kate blow them both away. Hands down best Dr. He delivers! You have to understand, these Dr's are sculptures! They have to look at you and see their work. You are a walking testiment to their ability!

51 Yr Old with 25 Yr Old Saline Implants Going from 325 Saline to 500CC Silicone - San Diego, CA

32 Years Old, No Kids. Breast Augmentation and Liposuction. San Diego, CA

So far my interaction with Dr. Pollack has been great. Really caring and can't wait to get my procedures done.

54 and Tired of Being Ashamed of my Legs - San Diego, CA

I had bariatric surgery 1/6/2009 after many years of yoyo diets gaining and losing my weight over and over again. Bariatric surgery gave me a new lease on life taking me from a size 26 pants to a size 6! But right alog withthat gfabulous loss is the loose skin from being so heavy - I was always mainly hips and legs! Last Sseptember 2014 I had an abdominoplasty with Dr. Larry Pollack and he did...

35, 3 Kids, Athletic Small Frame, Deflated A Cup to C - San Diego, CA

So far I've had an amazing experience with Dr Pollack and his staff. I interviewed four surgeons and I felt one didn't really care and was just going through the motions, two of them were trying to upsell me and were really fake and pretentious and then there was Dr Pollack who was real, caring and honest and told me what I needed and didn't try to get as much money out of me as he could. His office staff has also been amazing with communication and working with me on dates to do the surgery. I'll keep you posted as things progress.
