"Super nice and so very helpful"

“If you want something done right the first time, don’t waste your time or money going anywhere else. I will always recommend this office. Dr. Salzman personally wanted to see me and make sure everything was going well. You very rarely find that with any doctor these days. You can tell he holds his staff to a high standard also. They are all super nice and so very helpful. I will be a client/patient forever.”

"I’m so glad I did this and would do it over again"

“Dr. Salzman and staff were over the top! I felt comfortable from the time I walked through the front door for my consultation until I left. Dr. Salzman explained everything to me in detail and answered all my questions . . . The day of surgery I could not have asked to be treated better . . . Surgery went great, my recovery was great! I’m so glad I did this and would do it over again. I would definitely use Dr. Salzman again for any other procedure and would highly recommend him to all my friends and family.”

"I look and feel amazing"

“I had a mommy makeover with augmentation, both breasts 520cc. Marc did an excellent job, pain was minimal and the finished product is completely amazing. I honestly never thought I would feel good about myself again. I look and feel amazing. I will be going back soon to have a few touch ups done.”

"Very pleased with the result"

“This was my first cosmetic surgery and I couldn’t be more pleased. The consultation with Dr. Salzman left me feeling confident in his abilities as a surgeon, and he was careful to leave me with realistic expectations. I had a breast augmentation performed with small implants, and I can honestly say I experienced very little pain and no complications. Within days I was able to leave the house to shop and dine out. I love my new size and shape. I am in my fifties and my breasts had gone flat from pregnancy, breastfeeding, and age. They are perfect now. Again, very pleased with the result and healing process. Both my husband and I have said we are so happy we chose Dr. Salzman as my surgeon.”

"Hands down the best plastic surgeon"

“I was really nervous about having breast augmentation. I had done a lot of research for a long time, and the more I read the more I knew I wanted to consult with Dr. Salzman. During my consultation with him and Blair, I felt so comfortable. They answered every question. I didn’t feel rushed and they made sure I had no further questions . . . He is an amazing surgeon with great confidence in his skills. The whole staff is wonderful. My RN during and after surgery was amazing. This is hands down the best plastic surgeon and staff. I would recommend this place to everyone.”
