5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

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 to look fake. He also recommended some filler to soften my "laugh lines", this made a huge difference in my appearance, without the puffy look that i thought I would get! Dr. newman knows his stuff, and I would trust whatever he recommends. So far I love, love the juvederm! Thank you Dr. Newman!!

IDr. Newman always takes the time to explain and answer any questions I have had regarding any procedure. He is the Best of the Best.

Botox for TMJ

He takes time to explain things in detail... a much overlooked skill amongst docs today IMHO.

MixTo Treatment Great, but Unplanned Disaster Happened

While he is extremely good at communicating the process every step of the way and has a very good aesthetic eye, he does not appear to have a "crisis management" plan in place. Sometimes untoward things DO happen, and a patient may need to be admitted to a hospital OR sent to a GP doc asap. I feel that is essential for any plastic surgeon: know what you'll do in case of a crisis.

MIXTO C02 Left White Patches All over my Face!! Help.

He told me he had years experience on Mixto, and asking around his employes told me that they have bein doing mixto c02 for 6 months. After treatment they did not give me written instructions how to care for my skin, did not set a fallow up appointment, have not yet responded to my concerns which are the white patches all over my face.

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

Not enough information on after care until I asked a bunch. No paperwork for after care instructions. Otherwise, nice and good work.
