Marc Salzman, MD Reviews (254)

Breast Implant Revision

Everybody made the whole experience special. No worries about surgery.

Facial Fat Grafting

Dr. Salzman performed a face lift on me in 2016 and I am very pleased with the results. I like him and his professionalism, personality and expertise.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Loved my forehead. My mouth isn't even... one side is croaked

Breast Augmentation

The respect and concern from everyone there. It has made me feel more confident.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Salzman is the best! From looking at different before and afters of abdominoplasties online, it was clear to me that there is both an art and a science to tummy tucks. I truly feel that Dr. Salzman has BOTH - he is extremely knowledgeable and extremely skilled at obtaining an aesthetic result. I was extremely nervous about getting a full abdominoplasty with diastasis recti / hernia repair. After 3 kids my bellybutton protruded, my stomach skin looked like elbow skin and although I have a great diet / exercise program I could not make any more progress on my stomach. It was affecting my quality of life, I just did not feel comfortable in my skin and as a young Mom I was sad that I couldn't fix it. Enter Dr. Salzman and his wonderful team! Before the surgery: When I went to see Dr. Salzman at his facility, I felt reassured. His qualifications are exemplary. His office staff are kind. The clinic is clean and inviting. I scheduled the surgery there and then. I had several follow-up questions and received answers very quickly from either his staff or the Dr himself. I am so very glad I went through the surgery and went with Dr. Salzmann. The entire process went so smoothly, everything from scheduling to communication, everything ran seamlessly. After the surgery: The day of the surgery I was very scared but honestly I woke up not being quite sure if I had had the surgery or not. I was very nervous to wake up in pain but I did not. With the help of my husband I followed the post surgery instructions to a T, took all the different medications at the right times, rested as much as possible, wore a binder, did not pick up anything heavy, ate well and stayed hydrated. I was breastfeeding my 4 month old before the surgery, and I was able to breastfeed him again one week post op. My scar healed and is healing perfectly. Healing from this type of surgery takes some time but already my results have given me my confidence back. I am still lifting my shirt to look at my tummy when I go to the rest room but now it is to admire it, not to feel sad about it. THAT alone makes this surgery very worth it in my opinion!

Breast Augmentation

Please see previous paragraph

Breast Implant Revision

Love Dr Salzman and Staff.

Tummy Tuck

It turned out better than expected.

PRP Hair Restoration Therapy

Very little pain thanks to drugs. Waiting for [final] results.

Fat Transfer

The laser did not work as well in improving my skin as it did the first time I had it done. The fat that was transferred to my face around my eyes did not work and I still have to get it fuller there.


I guess I was wanting more noticeable results. I am not a heavy person to begin with, but I wanted to see a bigger difference

Breast Lift

They were very caring, very thorough, very accommodating. Going to have plastic surgery, you obviously have something on your body that you want corrected- they didn’t make me feel less attractive due to this, they made me feel beautiful as I am and very confident in the outcome I am wanting to achieve. Very relaxing, calming atmosphere and staff!

Breast Implant Revision

Every thing turned out looking great breast and lips

Tummy Tuck

Only 2nd week of recovering

Breast Implant Revision

I had 30 year old implants that needed removal, Dr Salzman and his staff where wonderful, did not judge me or make me feel bad about not having removed sooner, they where leaking, Very professional and concerned I highly recommend !! [Single best thing is...] Peace of mind having them removed

Breast Augmentation

Great experience! Being younger I was nervous about making a decision like this, all of the staff made me feel comfortable and educated on what I was choosing. I feel more confident in myself, while many people would disagree with someone changing themselves for self confidence it has made a world of difference for me. I’m so happy with the outcome and decision I’ve made.


I was highly satisfied, however the price for the procedure is something I need evaluate.

Halo Hybrid Fractional Resurfacing

I had two visits / treatments. Im blanking on the woman's name that did part of my treatment (Dr Salzman did the other part). She was very nice and accommodating. But $2800 later and my face looks exactly the same, which is more disappointing than results from other places I've gone in town bc I really believed Salzman could help after the consultation with him in July.

Breast Augmentation

Friendly and educated staff and doctor. They were caring, answered any questions I had thoroughly, and great with communication. I love my new boobs! Dr. Did a great job!
