5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Expert Knowledge, Aesthetic Mastery & Very Honest - Palo Alto, CA

It's been a week since I've gotten my breast augmentation and a minor liposuction procedure done and now I cannot look in the mirror without tears of joy streaming down my face. And it's all thanks to Dr. G's expert aesthetic eye. My confidence has amplified since I met her the first day I walked into her office to buy my first box of Latisse. She thoroughly worked with me over the years to help me finally knock out the kinks on my body that found dissatisfying. And the results exceeded my expectations. What attracted me the most is her concern for the future aesthetic beauty and well-being of her patients and puts into consideration if the procedure be beneficial as we age, or will it create complications. She could have easily pocketed thousands of dollars from me, but instead, told me not to get certain procedures done due to the high potential of dissatisfaction when my 30's-40's rolls around. She is the only surgeon that I consulted with who was blunt enough to admit this to me, along with a great deal of other helpful information. She's not your typical plastic surgeon who is ready and willing to proceed with your extensive list of surgeries in exchange for your life savings without mentioning that 10-40 years down the road the drawbacks will most likely outweigh the temporary benefits. She treats her patients with patience and premium concern and care as though they are her daughter or sister. Her office is beautiful and cozy, which makes her patients feel comfortable. It doesn't have that cold-plastic-highly-modern feel to it, as other plastic surgeons I consulted with had. What are you, as a patient, you paying for? The Picasso painting hanging on the wall of your surgeon's waiting room? The high-rent of a room located in the heart of a rich city? Or are you paying for the flawless expertise, extensive knowledge and personable care of your doctor? That's what I was looking to pay for, and those are just a few of the many great qualities that I saw in Dr. Lauren Greenberg. And on the side note, the ladies in the front desk, Patty and Marty, are warm-hearted sociable sweethearts. I highly recommend Dr. G to anyone who wants to enhance themselves and expect beautiful, natural and precise results that will leave you more than satisfied!

She Changed my Life for the Better! A Skilled Caring Surgeon - Palo Alto, CA

She changed my life for the better! Dr. G is an extremely skilled, compassionate surgeon. I had been through 2 breast augmentation and reduction surgeries. One was performed by a well known on TV beverly hills plastic surgeon who is a supposed known expert, who left me disappointed, disfigured and never even saw me after the surgery even though I tried to schedule with him. I have to say since my first appt with Dr. G, she knew what I had gone through and understood me thoroughly and took the time to understand my needs and she gave me very comprehensive advice. I thought I needed a smaller implant but she suggested I had enough breast tissue to remove implants and she was correct. I have never even in my twenties had perky nice figured breasts. She uses a technique that leaves minimal scarring and s sure to uplift the breast. Now, I take off my bra and have to stare awhile in the mirror because I can't believe the nice well shaped perky breasts in the mirror are mine. I look at them for the first time admiring them adoringly. Although I have always had a positive outlook and disposition, I cannot explain how Dr. G's skillful work has given me my life back. I can wear pretty shirts that close and do not pop open, my breasts have a beautiful uplift and I can exercise and even jog again. Life is definitely better. Dr. G has studied different techniques and explains why she uses the technique she does and explained to me exaxtly what to expect after. This experience was so vastly different than the other two I had. I would recommend my sister, my mother, a friend to Dr. G because I trust her fully and know that as a woman she cares about women, their health and has the skill to help women beccome the best they can be. She would never push a procedure on anybody and explains clearly before the outcomes that can be expected. As far as caring for her patients, she took the time on her way home from her vacation for a follow up visit with me after the holidays as my home is 2 hours away from her office. I cannot sing her praises enough. In short, yes, I highly recommend her. From California

Mini Tummy Tuck w/ Muscle Repair - Palo Alto, CA

I had my mini tummy tuck with lower abdominal tightening and minor lipo of the public area on December 14th 2010. The surgery went very well and I am healing nicely. I am very young (21) but as a teen I was very over weight. I lost 100 pounds through diet and exercise and was left with a lot of loose skin, most of it below my belly button. I do have loose skin and some muscle separation above...

20 Years Old, 335cc, No Kids, 32A/B Going for Feminine Proportions - Palo Alto, CA

I'm three days away from my BA procedure. Dr. Greenberg was immensely helpful in helping me decide on 335cc high profile implants, under the muscle. I was really back and forth with sizes and was so worried about going to big or too small. The surgeon over my two consultations answered my questions so thoroughly and knowledgeably. I feel incredibly confident in her abilities as a surgeon and...

31 Yrs Old, 5'6'', 115lb - 304cc Mod. Stanford, CA

I originally set up four doctor interviews and I though the first was great--Stanford trained, answered all my questions, had a great head on her shoulders. I thought for sure I would go with her until I met Dr. Greenberg and there was no doubt in my mind when I walked away from her office that i wanted to be in her care for this procedure. One thing that i found attractive is that she does...

Tired of Chronic Pain- they are out!! - San Jose, CA

Healing nicely . I had a lovely dr that was smart, honest , artful and caring . She was highly talented, really supported what was best for me. She's smart and I like her approach . Everything was done to the right degree and not overdone ! I would suggest her to anyone who is interested in a breast procedure (since that was my experience ) I always knew I was in good hands from a Day 1 and i am very particular :)

Health Conscious 52 Year Old Mother of 2 Finally Goes for Her Breast Dream

Since I was a teenager I have been self conscious about my breasts. They are small and for a 52 year old, fairly perky, but never 'grew up'. I am a 32a and have always wanted to feel more womanly in the breast department. I have talked myself out of doing a procedure for years, for various reasons, such as, scared of health repercussions, don't want to lose nipple sensation, don't like...
