5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Tummy Tuck, Breast Life and Augmentation - Bethesda, MD

Having lost over 100 pounds I had a lot of excess skin. After speaking with Dr. Forman we came up with a plan to resolve these problems. We started with a tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation. I am very happy with the results and will see Dr. Forman again to have additional procedures done. I would recommend him to anyone without any reservations.

Tummy-Tuck for 40 Year-Old Mom of 2 Kids - Rockville, MD

My goal is to repair the extensive muscle separation due to two pregnancies, as well as repair an umbilical hernia. I have been able to get back into reasonable shape, but finally decided after almost 6 years that I need to just have a TT. I even tried physical therapy, but the stretch marks and skin

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Natural Looking Breast Augmentation - Rockville, MD

I highly recommend Dr. Forman. He made me feel at ease, was patient with my endless thread of questions, and encouraged me to ask him anything. He explained everything about my procedure fully - including the risks - so that I was able to make an informed decision. On surgery day and during the recovery period, Dr. Forman and his staff were always available if I needed anything (and I did...

I Can't Believe I'm Finally Doing This! - Bethesda, MD

Hello, I am new here, but have been reading lots of posts here and have been encouraged to finally find the courage to do what I have always wanted to do. My kids are 13 and 11 and ever since I had my second child, I've longed for a flat stomach. In my pregnancies I gained over 60 lbs with the first and 40 lbs with the second. Unfortunately, that did a number on my stomach muscles and skin....

8 months later-feel good but not as flat as I was ...

I was always a small and thin child. At the age of 9 my parents got divorced and my Dad did the best he could but I turned to food for comfort(no one to blame but me). I have his shape-thin legs but a big tummy. I got up to about 200 lbs in college and decided at 19 it was time to go. I had one every diet in the past but nothing worked. I exercised and ate well and lost 60lbs. Met my hubbie...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Attentive, Professional & a Master Artist!

My husband and I loved the first visit with Dr. Forman. His team welcomed us with a friendly and professional attitude. He was very pleasant and elaborated on all of his recommendations. He also shared some of the extensive gallery of his work and we were very impressed. He is a master artist! We did not feel rush during the visit which is usually the experience at other plastic surgeons...

I did quite a bit of research before having a neck lift and I asked for referrals from a number of sources, including other doctors. My experience with Dr. Forman and his staff could not have been better.
