She’s Heidi, Inside and Out

“What can I say about Dr. Kaufman that hasn’t already been said? I am a 64 year old lady who’s ego was going downhill in a hurry. New wrinkles, saggy, droopy skin! Of course loved ones would say, “You don’t need a facelift”. The killer was when my son said, “Mom, you look great for your age, you’re just getting older”. My husband and I told Dr. Kaufman that we didn’t want him to pull my skin too tight because I wanted to look natural. What a talent that man has! Perfection in what we asked for and no more droopy face.I had a brow lift, neck tightening and CO2 skin peeling treatment. My eyes have opened up tremendously and look bright again! I still look like the same person. No doctor in all of Hollywood could have done a better job, in my opinion. Ladies, I even had surgery in a warm real bed with a pillow. Unbelievable surprise!As to Dr. Kaufman himself, has anyone seen the tremendous work he has done on children and adults in other less fortunate countries with cleft lips and other abnormalities? What miracles! Also, the man is an ex Navy Seal. Wow!

Dr. Kaufman, you are a special person to give all to your country, to help misfortunate people with facial imperfections and then to work your talent on people like me who, we’ll say, “are a little vain”. In my opinion, you are one brave, brilliant man with nothing but kindness in your heart. Future customers, if I am lucky enough to have this letter printed, I will tell you that you will never find a kinder man. This letter was written from the heart.”

“Thanks Dr. Kaufman for the wonderful job you did… during surgery, before and after!You took the time to explain everything to me and that made the recovery very easy. There were no surprises. I’m absolutely THRILLED with my new breasts! I’m wearing clothing with confidence I could have never imagined before.Your staff was so supportive and caring that I felt like I was with family. I’ve already recommended a friend to see you. You’re a talented surgeon and a warm, doctor. Thanks again!”

“Dear Dr. Kaufman and Staff, I lost over one hundred pounds after my gastric bypass, but I was actually less happy than when I was heavy. Many of you spent time with me explaining my options and were very emotionally supportive.By the time I had surgery, I was so ready to shed the stigma of my former self. The surgery went great and I’m literally half of my former self, but twice as happy. The body lift restored my confidence and made me emotionally whole! You all worked wonderfully as a team and made me feel like the star.Thanks again for the wonderful care. I just can say enough wonderful things about you!”

“Dr. Kaufman, What a change! I still can’t believe it when I look in the mirror… I’m still myself, but it’s as if the clock got turned back 10 years! Thanks to your wonderful staff for making me feel so special… and thanks to your hard work. I’m just thrilled!”
