5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

This is the right place

He was professional but talks with you like a real person. I am ecstatic about the results. The office of CNY cosmetic& reconstructive surgery has a very well organized group of professionals run their facility. They have many options for plastic surgery from the basic to the complicated.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Search no further than Dr. Baum!

Dr. Baum did my tummy tuck with muscle repair, and I can't say enough wonderful things about him & his staff. Dr. Baum is the ultimate professional, spends as much time with his patients as they need, called me at home after surgery & provided a number to reach him directly. He told me exactly what to expect with my tummy tuck and he has far exceeded my expectations. I'm 3 days post...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Top Notch All The Way

Dr. Baum did my breast lift with implants in June 2016. He was very through and very professional. I always felt like I was in good hands from the very first meeting, through the surgery, and now at the follow up appointments. I am very happy with the results of the augmentation and lift and would highly recommend him. His staff is always very helpful and friendly as well. Dr. Baum gave me...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Juvederm and Botox Injections - Syracuse, NY

I have seen Dr. Baum on multiple occasions for juvederm and botox treatments. I have been extremely satisfied with each treatment that I have recieved from him. I find Dr. Baum to be very attentive to my concerns and helpful with any questions that I have regarding these treatments. He was very informative with the risks/complications before I had the treatments done. I am happy that I found...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

I had an amazing experience!

Dr.Gregory Baum did my breast augmentation and I couldn't be happier ! My husband and I have been doing research for the past few years and finally decided to go for it. I knew from our first conversation with Dr.Baum that he was the one that I wanted to do my surgery. I felt comfortable with him ! Dr.Baum was very professional and confident but did not make me feel uncomfortable. I was very...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

The Belly I Should Have Had! - Fayetteville, NY

All of my office visits since have been comfortable and convenient. I will say that something about Dr. Baum that really stood out to me came during my recovery when I began to retain a small amount of fluid after my drains were removed. I had to go in a few times to have the fluid removed via needle and I felt as though Dr. Baum was very conscious of respecting my body and boundaries as my own. Many doctors seem to become desensitized to boundaries people have and sort of treat our bodies as their own in what can sometimes feel very frightening and make us as patients feel very vulnerable. Dr. Baum always made me aware of what was going to be done and did it in such a way that I felt he truly cared not only about my physical comfort, but my emotional comfort as well. I feel as though he has a great ability to balance a patients boundaries with a gentle way in which to make sure his own job is being done appropriately and effectively. I have had surgery five times previously and never had this good of an experience with all of them combined. I recommend Dr. Baum to every single person I know.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

My Turkey Neck and How I Lost It - Fayetteville, NY

I could not have chosen a better plastic surgeon than Dr. Baum. I found myself in his office on the recommendation of friends. He listened to every concern I had, i.e. recovery time, expectations, cost, etc. He never glorified the procedure. He was honest about what I could expect and that I would not look like Kenny Rogers or Joan Rivers AND that I would also not look 21! I appreciated his honesty, he squelched the moderate concerns I had about invasive surgery of any kind, and I was relaxed and at ease by the time surgery occurred. Dr. Baun's "bedside manner" is wonderful. I intend to continue to see him for other procedures and thank him profusely for my current "look".

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Small Boobies or Bust - Fayetteville, NY

Dr. Baum and his staff have been great. They are courteous, professional and willing to answer any questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Baum to anyone thinking about having this procedure.
