5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Thank you Dr. Korman!

I had been a fit and active woman all of my life. A dancer, a singer, and a confident person. When I got married and pregnant my weight went up to 350 lbs. I developed many health issues because of the weight gain. My husband left me which was devastating and I fell into a deep depression. Over the years I lost most of the weight and got down to 170 lbs. but still lacked confidence. I...

Best Cosmetic Surgeon Ever!

I was referred to Dr Korman by another doctor and I am beyond happy with my results. I chose to do a breast and buttuck augmentation at the same time. This is a tremendous amount of work to do at the same time, but for personal reasons I felt I could handle the recovery. From the moment I Dr Korman he exhibited the epitome of professionalism and a genuine interest in me personally. He spent a...

Awesome experience with Dr Korman and his team

I had breast agumentation surgery done by Dr. Korman in December of 2016. I was referred to him by my two co-workers. The surgery went really well and I was able to return to work 6 days later. No scars and no pain after just one month! Dr. Korman made my dream come true. No more paddings! Definitely 5 stars for Dr. Korman and his team. Highly recommended!!!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Two amazing experiences! I highly recommend (at least) visiting the office, you WON'T be disappointed :)

I have 2 to share; both are MORE THAN WORDS CAN EXPRESS! First; Dr. Korman gave me the best breast augmentation than I could have imagined. I interviewed 3 other doctors and chose Dr. Korman for these reasons: 1- He doesn't have to tell you about his qualifications or expertise. It shows with how he speaks with you and understands EXACTLY what you are looking for. From the minute I met him, he...

Dr. Korman is my family's first choice!

Dr. Korman has worked on our family for 14 years, and he is my family's first choice for any plastic surgery needs or wants with his diversified skillset. He has an impressive bedside manner, with a good sense of humor, and he handles neurotic and/or anxious patients with grace. A great guy; we're lucky to have found him!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Korman, Our Family Cosmetic Surgeon, Has Reconstructed a Significant Portion of my Body.

First, he gracefully dealt with my neurotic, demanding, and entitled mother, before and after she arranged my otoplasty with him. She likes him so much that she's returned to him for...whatever it is that vain, old women do to their faces... He was additionally supportive of my mother's concern for my education when I came out of the above mentioned coma: "Well, of course, she's got to finish!" As I mentioned before, Dr. Korman and his admin helped me to devise financing strategies for my most recent surgeries, without which they would not have been possible. He has additionally been understanding of my idiosyncratic aesthetic goals ("I just want my old boobs back!" and "I don't really care what it looks like, I just want to pee like a normal person...") and has graciously facilitated them. Dr. Korman is a wonderful surgeon, and all around great guy :). ...I'm trying to convince them to send my sister to him for a breast reduction when she's ready, to save her back and posture.

40th Bday Preso to Myself

I couldn't be happier with Dr. Korman, his work and his staff. He's professional, honest, highly-skilled and confident. These are what I'd consider a minimum for a surgeon - but I can say he's also kind, fair and empathetic. He truly cares - not only about his patients, but his staff, and it shows. He makes it a priority to hire the right people and treat others with respect. I wholeheartedly recommend him and wouldn't go to anyone else in the future. The only constructive criticism I'd share is the 50-page paperwork stack that takes an hour to complete. I'm exaggerating, of course, but it IS a ludicrous amount of signing. :)

18 Years Old, 5'2" Getting Silicone Implants

Wanted to have this done before I go to college in the fall, and now I'm finally making it a reality! I'm financing the procedure entirely on my own, and after extensive research and many consultations, I decided to go with Dr. Korman in mountain view! I'm only 18, but I wanted to receive silicone implants. For women under 22, getting silicone is declared an off-label use, therefore the...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

New me, new life. My dream came true!

Dr. Korman made my dream come true! I literally had zero breast so I decided to get my breast augmentation done by him after a ton of research and now my bra size is 34C or 34D and they look GORGEOUS. From the free consultation to the date of operation, he makes sure you feel absolutely comfortable with what you're trying to get. He's very experienced, detailed and skilled needless to say how...
