Aside from Dr. Altman’s surgical repertoire, he quickly emerged as one of the nation’s leaders in non-operative methods of facial rejuvenation and body contouring.

Breast augmentation: So after breastfeeding my babies my breast headed south. I had several consultations over the years but did not click with any of the surgeons. I finally found Dr. Altman and we clicked. He understood what I wanted and explained to me what I needed to achieve the best results. I was shocked that my recovery was so easy and quite painless.

I went to Dr. Altman for my breast revision. I am so thankful for finding Dr. Altman. After having a child and breastfeeding , my breast became uneven and I had a double bubble. (which is very difficult to fix) He made me feel confident and reassure me that he can make them look perfect again. It’s been one week and I am beyond happy with my results thus far. They feel so natural. He has the best bedside manner and will always make sure you are ok during the process! His specialty work and knowledge in plastic surgery is by far one of the best. Thank you !

As an operating room nurse I have encountered many, many surgeons and observed both their skill and artistic technique with patients. Dr. Altman is unsurpassed both his expertise in the operating room giving his patients results that far exceeded their expectations. Dr. Altman also has the kind and compassionate bedside manner that is lacking in so many surgeons. He is able to listen to his patients needs and wants and deliver a holistic healing environment that meets both their physical and emotional needs. I have recently worked with Dr. Altman in another capacity and that is of being his patient. As an operating room nurse, I would not and have never trusted my body with any other surgeon. Dr. Altman listened to my concerns and discussed the advantages and disadvantages of various treatment options ranging from more conservative approaches to more invasive approaches until we mutually agreed upon a treatment plan. I was astounded by the results and could not be happier! I have received compliment after compliment and i am thrilled with how natural the look is. I would highly recommend Dr. Altman to anyone seeking cosmetic or reconstructive procedures. He truly is a kind and gifted artist who puts his patients needs as his top priority!
