5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Awesome Doctor - Brooklyn, NY

I've always heard horror stories about plastic surgery so I've always been hesitant about going through with one. That was until I got completely fed up with my stomach and decided to go ahead with the tummy tuck procedure. The staff was phenomenal and Dr. Daniel Kaufman was fantastic. They called me every day until my next visit to see how I was doing. (Smiling) I am only 6 wks post op but...

Best Decision Ever! - Brooklyn, NY

Dr. Kaufman is very honest and caring man. First time I saw him, I knew he was the surgeon I can trust. He answered all my questions, even before I got a chance to ask. I was very lucky to find him, because he has that personality to make even the weirdest situations so pleasant and comfortable.

33 and finally decided to get rid of my seriously hooded Upper Lids - Brooklyn, NY

I've done a lot of googling and a lot of RealSelf-ing... Had a really great consultation with Dr Kaufman. I originally wanted an upper and lower lid lift but he took one look at me and said I was too young for a lower lift (it was a good swelling day for my lowers ha ha.) He was very cautious about lowers as so much of mine is due to allergies and water retention, and his viewpoint is that it's better to under do it than over do it. He said he would definitely do the upper lids though, and I made an appointment for June 25 for a upper blepharoplasty. I'll wait for my end result to do a final review but based on all the reviews I've read, and I sent his info to several friends in the medical field and they were all impressed with his background.

Dr. Kaufman has a loving, caring bedside manner. He told me exactly what I needed done and was straight to the point and he held my hands in his while the anesthesia was administered cuz I was so scared about going under for surgery. He's like no other I've ever met. He even gave me his personal cell phone number. His assistant Karina is a special gem as well, and was also right by my side caring for me

31 Year Old Mommy of 2 Kids Tummy Tuck- Brooklyn, NY

Dr. Kaufman is awesome. He made me feel comfortable right away. He answered all of my questions, never rushed or pressured me. He showed me where the incision would go and even did a diagram of how a tummy tuck is performed.

5 out of 5 stars FTM Chest Masculinization Surgery

23 Year Old FTM Top Surgery (Periariolar Incision with Liposuction) - Bronx, NY

Doctor Kaufman changed my life. He gave me the surgery I needed to truly be happy, to truly be free. I had the periarieolar incision with liposuction top surgery. He helped me love myself, care about myself and really love the skin I am in. I am able to look in the mirror now and see the man I am, I am able to go shirtless in my apartment and I am able to be shirtless without those closest to me. I finally feel happy, I am finally able to truly live. Doctor Kaufman's the absolutely best at FTM top surgery and I highly recommend him. He is truly wonderful, kind, caring and a very skilled surgeon. He is the best surgeon there is and he is one of the greatest men I have ever met. Doctor Kaufman will change your life. finally feel happy and free, I finally feel alive.
