5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

May need some scar revision but all systems a go! 10 weeks post-op!- San Francisco, CA

Dr. Mosser is complete professional and I had confidence in his skill after my online research but after meeting him for my initial consultation I felt like I would be taken care of very well by himself and his staff. After having a consultation with a previous surgeon that left me feeling very cold this was a warm welcome and I knew I had found the right surgeon for me. My Post Op appointments have been short and painless as I head down the road to recovery and I'm so grateful for Dr. Mosser's care and his great staff for always making me feel comfortable and taken care of.

Lipo on Flanks, Lower Back and AB's - San Francisco, CA

I had lipo done 4 months ago in Sept 2011. I weighed 130 pounds, I was 5'2. So far I feel like I had great results. At First I thought I had just made the biggest mistake of my life. It look 3 months before I acutally started seeing results. I was frustrated, but 3 months after my surgery I started to notice that my pants started to fit better. My bar strap was starting to get lose. By the...

Consultation review 31 Years Old, Nervous About Surgery, CRUSHED by Dr. Mosser. San Francisco, CA

He is a nice guy. He means well. His practice, however, lacks in transparency and straightforwardness with its clientele. He's also clearly in this for the money way more so than for actually helping people.

1 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Unhappy Liposuction - San Francisco, CA

I had liposuction of abdomen done by Dr. Scott Moser about 5 years ago. The date I mentioned is only an approximation. This was before realself. The most important thing you need to remember is that Dr. Scott Moser, at that time, was making his patients sign a legal paper where you agree that you will never write a negative reivew about his work on the internet (pursuant to legal action). You...

It's Been Awhile and I Have Been Extremely Happy - San Francisco, CA

I feel horrible for not writing a review sooner but I have been so busy enjoying my new bod!! I love Dr. Mosser seriously! I was nervous at first but his staff really made me feel comfortable.
