5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Outstanding Experience & Staff!

I had breast augmentation done and Dr. Salzman and his entire team were outstanding. They were all very welcoming and comforting especially on the day of my surgery. Extremely responsive to my questions and took the time out of their day any time I called. I will be going back for anything I need in the future and be referring my friends and family to him!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Extremely Happy!!

I love the care and expertise of Dr. Salzman and his team. I had a breast lift and implants about a year ago. I am 54 and nursed 3 babies. I am very small and I wanted to stay small but have my volume and perkiness back! I went on 4 consultations over a few years and they all wanted to make me much larger than I wanted to be. Dr. Salzman was the first to listen to me and gave me exactly what I...

51 Years Old. Breast Lift with Augmentation

Dr. Salzman was very professional, listened to my goals and helped me make my decisions on procedures and sizes much easier. I felt very comfortable and relaxed during the consultation, the day of surgery, and all follow up visits. I researched many surgeons before choosing Dr. Salzman and could not be happier with my decision.

23 Years Old, 32A Breast Augmentation - Louisville, KY

Dr. Salzman is very experienced and knowledgeable, and it shows in his practice. He has an excellent bedside manner, he explained everything to me thoroughly, and didn't leave me with any unanswered questions or surprises. His confidence in his skills made me feel confident in my choice of him as my surgeon. His staff is professional and friendly. I was nervous on my way to my appointment, but once I got there, they made me feel at ease. They were diligent in ensuring I was as comfortable as possible, both pre and post op. The anesthesiologist was also very experienced and had an excellent bedside manner. I am very happy with my decision with Salzman Cosmetic Surgery and Spa

Dr. Salzman is just a brilliant surgeon. I am pleased with his expertise and am glad to have chosen him to perform my breast augmentation. He also runs a great office and his staff members are very competent and able to deliver quality customer care. I especially loved working with his practice administrator Erika who was incredibly lovely and personable.

Dr Marc Salzman for Laser Resurfacing - Louisville, KY

Update 1/4/16 - The man is a genius! OLD REVIEW: Dr. Salzman was fantastic prior to the procedure. Great bedside manner, etc... But after was a whole different story. When he saw my lip, he knew I wasn't happy and he could not wait to get away from me.

32 Years Old in Need of Some New Boobs - Louisville, KY

Salzman is absolutely amazing! I wanted to go bigger than what I got but Salzman told me if I went bigger then it wouldn't be proportional to my body size and he was right! Just had my surgery today so I'll post pictures once the bandage comes off

5 out of 5 stars Inspira Breast Implants

~ Natrelle INSPIRAs - There is NOTHING Like Them! ~ 37 Y/o, 5'4", 100 Lb., Nulligravid, Very Little Breast Tissue - Louisville

I am so happy that I went to Dr. Salzman - it was definitely the right choice for me! At my consultation: Dr. Salzman and Kim (his R.N.) were very compassionate and patiently listened to my concerns. They spent a lot of time answering all of my questions and gave me the information I needed to make an informed decision. He diagrammed what was happening with my implants and was confident that he that he knew how to get me the look I wanted. I felt like they treated me as an individual and respected my aesthetic and vision of what I wanted. They carefully reviewed the implant types and measurements I provided to them from previous surgeries and, from those, selected the INSPIRA size that they thought would be perfect for me. At my pre-op visit: Kim reviewed everything with me. She helped me further understand why the INSPIRAs and Dr. Salzman’s approach would be the best way to achieve the result I desired. After my visit with her, I felt even more confident and excited! The day of surgery: I have IV-phobia, but the nurses were great and distracted me while they inserted mine – I hardly felt a thing. While awaiting surgery, the recovery nurses and Kim regularly checked on me to see if I needed anything. (I did request an IV cheeseburger, but they couldn’t accommodate that). Dr. Salzman also checked on me a couple of times, answered all of my last-minute questions, and really put my mind at ease! Dr. Clark (the anesthesiologist) was amazing! He was very calming, funny, and kept me comfortable (and pain-free) the entire time. I am not sure what he does that is different from other anesthesiologists, but I felt so much more alert and normal (even rested) immediately post-op than any other time I’ve had anesthesia. Post-op: I had some questions and needed a little reassurance about my dressing over the weekend. Dr. Salzman always promptly responded and never seemed bothered.
