5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

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

After my 3rd baby 2.5 years ago, my breasts were horribly saggy with no fullness. Hydrasolve used in fat removal of inner and outer thigh, 300 CCs of fat transferred to each breast. Strattice used in lift. Two weeks later, I am feeling much better. Lipo is very painful, more than expected. Lift pain manageable.

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...

5 out of 5 stars Sientra Breast Implants

370cc Sientra Classic Shape Texture Implants - San Jose, CA

I decided on breast augmentation because I have always been insecure about my breast. I am 5'1" and 115lbs, currently wear a 32-34 A cup. I went to many plastic surgeons for consultation and even made an appointment for surgery with one doctor but cancel the day before surgery because I didn't feel comfortable in the end with him. I found Dr. Berkowitz through a coworker/friend of mine. Dr....

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

After Two Kids, Time to Get Back to Me. Campbell, CA

Now that my kids are in college, Im ready to get back to me and what makes me feel good. Love my kids but having them left my belly buldgy with a lot of stretch marks. Dr Berkowitz told me that CoolSculpting probably woudn't tighten my skin but I will say that not only is the fat going away but the skin is tighter too!

A Very Easy Procedure with Great Results - Campbell, CA

I just went for my second round of treatment because I wanted to see more results. The first session was great, but it only scratched the surface of what I really wanted. After talking to my doctor, I went back to work on my love handles. I'm looking forward to seeing the full result from my treatments.

5 out of 5 stars Natrelle Breast Implants

35 Years Old Petite Frame 2 Kids 325cc Silicone Natrelle - Campbell, CA

I wished to get a tummy tuck or breast augmentation so long already. My oldest is 13 my youngest is 7. I didn't think I could take much time off work to do the tummy tuck because I'm very active at my job, so I chose BA first. Yesterday morning was my operation, and I have been in a lot of pain. It feels as if the center of my chest sternum area is being pulled in opposite directions. I...

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

I have 4 kids ages 4-14. I am fairly thin about 125 pounds and have tried everything to strengthen my tummy muscles. But... they have split. I also have bad scarring from the stretching that others moms my age don't have. I also had an umbilical hernia he repaired that was small. While I was under, I had him revise a mole scar on my thigh and it looks so much better. I also did fat grafting...

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

57 Year Old, MACS Short Scar Face Lift, Upper and Lower Eye Lids, and Facial Fat Grafting. Campbell, CA

I am a very active 57 year old, play competitive tennis and surf. Living near the beach all my life, my face has been exposed to a lot of sun damage. I had deep marionette lines and jowls in my lower jaw area. My lips were very thin and more than one person even commented on that fact! It was embarrassing. I had no eyelid and my makeup was always smeared under one eye that drooped more...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

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

It is really true that your nose gets larger & wider as you age at least it did for me. When I was younger my nose was not an issue as I aged it seemed like every year my nose became wider & larger. I started to pay attention to my photos & my profile more & truly started to bother me. I did extensive research into Rhinoplasty plastic surgeon's I learned while researching that not only did...
