5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

39 Years Old, Breastfed 3 Babies, Breast Lift with Fat Transfer

Love Dr. Berkowitz. Office friendly. I was not oversold on procedures when considering tummy tuck, implants, etc. He gave me exactly what I was looking for. Still unsure of inner/outer thigh lipo results due to still swelling and healing. Doctor was sympathetic when lipo hurt immensely and assured me I'd get through it. Two weeks later, finally feeling better. Was 34D and now 36 DD but still swollen. Unsure of final size yet.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

The best of the best - Campbell, CA

Dr. Berkowitz is, quite simply, the best. It is beyond clear that he cares deeply about all of his patients. I had rhinoplasty with him and am receiving a revision soon to make some minor touch ups. His warranty to waive the surgeon's fee for revision is proof that he truly cares about the patient's happiness and isn't just after your money. He has the best bedside manner of any doctor I've...

Finally got a TT after 25 Years! Los Gatos, CA

I had a C-section with my daughter 25 years ago and my stomach has never been the same since. Add to that an almost-40 lb weight loss over the last 18 months, and I am more than ready to get this apron removed and get my diastasis recti corrected finally! I want my outside to match how I feel inside! :) Wow, this list is really LONG and cost a pretty penny! I gathered this list from...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

"37 Year Old Mom of 4" - Campbell, CA

Dr B has been great during this whole process! I have been thinking of it for 4 years!!! He went above and beyond to make sure I felt comfortable even up to the day of surgery. After surgery, he called and even gave me his cell phone number and I did end up calling him. He is so calm and intelligent and makes decisions quickly. His staff is very kind and always answers ALL my questions.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Beautiful Nose Thanks To Dr. Berkowitz - San Jose, CA

Dr. Berkowitz was & still is the most attentive, patient, superior surgeon. He called me the evening after my procedure to make sure if I had any questions or concerned. He has remained just as committed to my care as the first initial consult.
