Young Adult Male. Lexington, KY

Had enlarged nasal bridge hump with prominent bones. Felt very self concious all during growing up during my years until i entered college. Contemplated forever about having anything done but felt inside that i knew i wanted to change this one aspect of myself. Now over 20 years since the procedure im still glad i had it done.

Mini- Face and Neck Lift, Upper and Lower Bleph - 46 - Lexington, KY

Dr. Waldman performed rhinoplasty and a chin implant for me about 12 years ago, so I knew he did good work. My expectations were met again!

5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant


I was very pleased with Dr. Waldman and his office staff. They have all been very courteous, professional, and kind. Dr. Waldman has been straight forward with me about this procedure and also with a couple other procedures I am having done. (Fillers for acne scars and thinking about a round of light botox to make my eyes lift a bit and keep my crows feet at bay for a little while.) Instead of trying to sell me on more expensive procedures, he has had my limited budget in mind while giving me honest options and advice to the questions I have had. You should always feel you can put your trust in any doctor your choose to take care of your health- but most importantly a doctor that is working on your face - and I feel very comfortable in doing that with Dr. Waldman. Though I am still swollen from this procedure because it's only been 2 days - I think he did an excellent job and I fully trust should any complications arise he will make sure that they are corrected - but so far so good! I will definitely go back to his office for any further procedures I may chose to have done in the future.

So Happy...Great Experience - Lexington, KY

First I must say that Dr. Waldam specializes in Facial plastic surgery...He is the best at what he does. Waldman and Schantz Plastic Surgery is a very professional yet comfortable practice. They truly care about you and a person not jut a patient. The staff is very friendly and real. During my initial consultation, I mentioned that I was coming back to meet with Dr. Schantz for a tummy tuck consult...Dr. Walmand stands up sayting that there's no need for me to make another trip as he just saw him in the hall and he must be between surgeries. Dr. Schantz took time out of his busy day to meet with me right then and there. They are a fantastic group. I cannot recommend this practice enough. I'm looking forward to my tummy tuck with Dr. Schantz this winter!!!

The Very Best - Lexington, KY

The office staff was very helpful and the Dr did Juvederm injections in my nose and lips. They still look great and it's almost been a year. He took time to explain everything very well and give me options.

Pleased beyond words !!!

I can't start to give enough thanks for what Dr. Waldman and staff has done for me! I had lived with a terrible scar (from skin cancer) on my nose for over 15 years. It was the first thing I saw when I looked in the mirror every day, and made me very self conscious to the point of avoiding photographs. Dr. Waldman told me he couldn't make it go away but could improve it greatly. The results...
