5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

63 Year Old - San Francisco, CA

I'm so glad that I chose Dr. Bermudez to do my tummy tuck with muscle repair and flank liposuction. It's been a little over 5 months now, and the results are absolutely great! From the beginning, he explained the procedure and the WHY. You see, when I initially consulted with him, I had planned to only get liposuction. Dr. Bermudez was thorough in giving me information that I needed in order to make a decision as to what would be most beneficial and permanent. I love how I look, and I love how he is a perfectionist. I highly recommend Dr. Bermudez.

Fantastic Plastic Surgeon - San Francisco, CA

I had office surgery by Dr B and had a wonderful experience. I even took my mom and girlfriends to see him and they were all thrilled with their results.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Great Results, 200% Improvement - San Francisco, CA

I decided to see several doctors before making a decision and also did a lot of research on line. One of the surgeons I saw came highly recommended by my dear friend that just had the same procedure done by him, he said my breasts were a challenge! They were several issues he was concerned about it. Then I went to see Dr. Bermudez, right away I felt at ease with him, he is very professional, straight forward and super nice!! My post surgery appointments were easy, barely no wait time. Annalee, the practice manager is a wonderful person, always happy to forward my questions to Dr. Bermudez, or to make any changes I might need, and retuned my calls right away, she's very caring and pleasant. My experience with Dr. Bermudez was so great that I decided to get the rhinoplasty that I dreamed of since I was 15 years old. And once again Dr Bermudez performed a wonderful job, I can't be more pleased with the results and it's only been 3 weeks!! I would recommend Dr. Bermudez to anybody!

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Type 1 Diabetic and a Mommy Makeover (Breast Augmentation & Tummy Tuck) - San Francisco, CA

I'm now PO Day 4 and I'm progressing everyday. I got to shower last night, removed the pain pump from the breasts and I saw Dr. Bermudez's work for the first time. I love, love my results and am extremely happy! This is what keeps me going.. I arrived at the hospital Tuesday morning at 6am as my surgery was scheduled for 7:30am. A nurse took my vitals, asked me questions about my health,...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Breast Lift with Implants and Brachioplasty - a Wonderful Outcome for This "I Am Not Old" Lady - San Francisco, CA

A perfectionist, who worked with me to help me select the best size and shape for me and then spend ALL the time needed before, during, and after the surgery to ensure that my outcome was perfect for ME. He patiently answered all my husband's questions, and took the time to work with my family support system/ caretaker to ensure that each step of the aftercare instructions were clear and achievable. My husband is a critical connoisseur, and researched extensively on outcomes among his acquaintance's experience. I'm in a medical area and had researched Dr. B (who had also done my facelift a couple years ago and another procedure earlier in 2015). Hubby is almost never happy with anyone's effort, and he readily admits that Dr. B did a "phenomenal job." I'm so pleased. Hubby is also a bit tight, and he complete agrees that Dr. B was the best value, because you DO (in this case) get what you pay for. I wanted a great shape and a great outcome, with a doctor who would stand behind his work and "tweak" if needed. (I know my age and I know my body's limitations) . Dr. B does work to make sure you are happy, and stands behind his work. I appreciate that. (Note that he's now - as of this writing - done a complete, head to knee makeover in the last few years). I wouldn't keep coming back - and it's a trek from the east bay - if he wasn't the best I'd found.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Perfect Results! San Francisco, CA

Words cannot describe how happy I am with my results. I have had both a breast augmentation and rhinoplasty with Dr. Bermudez and it was the best decision I have ever made. I feel better about my appearance and have gained so much confidence. My goal was to have natural looking results and Dr. Bermudez worked with me every step of the way to achieve the best outcome. His practice incorporates...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

3 Years Later and It is Still the Best Thing I Ever Did for Myself.... - San Francisco, CA

Dr. Bermudez was professional, careful, and exhibited a level of perfectionism that completely surpassed our expectations. He never made us feel rushed. Even better, he had swift response when I had a personal issue (unrelated to his care) that interfered with my surgery, and followed up diligently with my primary care provider to provide details.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

34 Year Old Mom of 3 - Breast Augmentation and Liposuction to Abdomen - San Francisco, CA

My experience with Dr. Bermudez has been wonderful so far. He has a warm yet professional mannerism, is obviously experienced and skilled, and never condescending. He is a proponent of a natural looking result, and knows what it takes to deliver it. He answered my phone call on a Saturday (one day post op) when I got an allergic reaction to some supplements, and his staff has always returned my calls promptly. Also had a GREAT experience with the hospital, California Pacific Medical Center, Davies Campus. The overall surgery fees were higher, largely because of the high hospital fees, but I had such a positive experience, I think the extra cost is worthwhile. All of the nurses were so kind and attentive, and even the anesthesiologist made me feel very comfortable.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

36 Years Old, 3 Kids, Active/Athletic, Desire Natural Look - San Francisco, CA

I carefully selected Dr. Kenneth Bermudez by going to consultations with multiple doctors and reading loads of reviews. Dr. Bermudez takes plenty of time to answer questions and understand exactly what his patient wishes to achieve. His surgery technique goes beyond industry standard in ensuring that no contaminant is introduced to the surgical pocket. This essentially eliminates infections which can lead to capsular contraction. He is meticulous and his results are beautiful. Finally, his office staff is fantastic. Annalee is truly a gem. Overall a very good experience.
