5 out of 5 stars Skin Tightening

Fat Removal and Skin Tightening - San Francisco, CA

Dr. Kulick was extremely patient and explained all options. He seemed genuinely concerned with making sure I had realistic expectations so I would be happy with the results. The staff was also very professional and made sure to call me right back when I left a vm. Overall my experience with Dr. Kulick and his practice was excellent

Laser Face - Redo - San Francisco, CA

He gets a 10 star rating if I could do that in all of the categories.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Outstanding Surgeon

Dr Kulick is a renowned surgeon and I had great results with the two procedures that he did on my face. Its not easy to trust anyone to make changes to ones face-but his depth of knowledge and willingness to spend time understanding my needs helped put my mind at ease .He sets the right expectations of what the procedure will or will not do and is very willing to answer questions.

Dr Mike Kulick, an Amazing Plastic Surgeon for Botox! - San Francisco, CA

He was wonderful as stated above.

Crooked Broken Nose, Fixed Dr. Kulick! - San Francisco, CA

I broke my nose badly in college and tried my best to ignore the fact that it was clearly healing crookedly. When I got out of law school, I decided to finally do something about it and our firm's secretary I MUST see Dr. K. After a quick consultation, his darling secretary set me up with a follow-up and a potential surgery date. The procedure itself was seamless (I hardly remember much of it)...

In the Hands of an Artist

Dr. Kulick is simply one of the best. He is charming, honest, and incredibly artistic. If he believes he cannot give you a result, he will tell you so. If there are options as to how to achieve a result, he will discuss them in detail. There is no effort to "sell" his work--he doesn't need to and really cares about creating a work of art. In the years I have known him, I feel honestly that I have a friend in the art of surgery.

1 out of 5 stars Facelift

Facelift - San Francisco, CA

I expected to see a more youthful me. I do in some aspects, but the weight on the bad side of the scale is much heavier than the good! I spent a whole lot of money for facelift, necklift, and browlift. I was awake during part of the procedure and felt, cutting, burning, suturing. When I told the Dr. he said, of coure, you were in twilight. Not asleep. NEWS FLASH -He was so cheap that he...

1 out of 5 stars Mole Removal

Terrible Plastic Surgeon Who Ruined my Life! - San Francisco, CA

I went in to get a simple raised mole removed in the middle of my cheek. As a precaution I had a mole in not as visible place removed by him which is near my ear. He removed this and it turned out fine. A month later I had him remove the mole right in the middle of my cheek and left a really indented long scar over 2 inches with raised skin on the top and bottom.I was horrified. When I went back to him he was arrogant and didn't want to help or listen or help me or acknowledge his mistake. His assistant is awful, she overcharged me to add insult to injury she quoted me an amount verbally but then said I misunderstood and charged me double of what she had told me she would charge me verbally. Well I believe what goes around comes around in life! Every day I have people staring at me in horror of his work. I have to look at this in the mirror every day and live with it every day and see people turn away from me or look at me in horror. He ruined my looks. Very sloppy work and arrogant. Do yourself a favor and don't go to this guy he will ruin your life and when you go back to him won't listen to your concerns. This was almost 10 years ago that I got this done but I have to warn other people out there. I was going to sue him to be honest but I decided that what goes around comes around. It isn't enough for him to rip people of he needs to ruin your life as well and then be extremely rude when you go back to him.

5 out of 5 stars Laser Treatment

Laser Face Lift for a Young 67 Year Old

For several years, I had wanted to get rid of my lower jowls and sagging neck. At 67 I knew I needed to do something about it. I had a nose job done years earlier by Dr. Kulick and had always loved the results. Once again, I reached out to Dr. Kulick to do my laser face lift knowing he would do an excellent job. Unfortunately, I had moved out of town and was not quite sure how this could...
