CO2 Laser

My breasts were drooping and had stretch marks. - Breast Implants - Beachwood, OH

I chose to have two surgeries at the same time; a breast augmentation and a rhinoplasty. My breasts were drooping and had stretch marks from breast feeding my children.

I agree with you on getting better results. However, Dr. Goldman has a very conservative style. He is an excellent surgeon, just because the results aren't exactly what I wanted doesnt negate that. I looked at your profile and saw that... READ COMMENT

Hi! I think they cost around 6500.00 or so. He gave me two discounts so I paid a different price. One discount for being in the medical profession and the second for having two surgeries at the same time. I have a VIP card I can mail to... READ COMMENT

Hi Laurrieanne. Dr. Goldman is wonderful! I just went in for a slight revision to remove bone and I am back to being slightly swollen and having a lot of extra skin (gross). I am being patient with this though and hoping it resolves... READ COMMENT
