      I have had both melanoma and basal cell skin cancers and have had multiple biopsies including on my face. For 20 years I have researched and thought that I had found the best skin care facilities to proactively address these issues. That was until I had a procedure at Premier Plastic Surgery. Dr. Newman, Dee and his entire staff were exceptional before, during and after a procedure that I was very nervous about having. I definitely have the highest confidence in them and will continue to work with them as my skin care needs change.

      Dr. Newman has been treating me for the past 20 years! I started coming to see him for Thermage after being referred by one of the plastics MD's at Palo Alto Medical Foundation. Dr. Newman is someone I trust implicitly - he will honestly tell me if something I want to do isn't in my best interest which isn't usual in this space. I have continued to see Dr. Newman through job transfers to Chicago and Southern California and would never consider having another person treat me. I am a professional, single woman and looking fresh is important to me! I do not want to look like a middle age woman trying to appear 25. I am confident that I look as good as I feel and am grateful to have Dr. Newman's guidance as I move gracefully through the aging process!

      Dr. Newman is so patient, kind, and helps me to see what "really" needs to be addressed and what is in my head! Dr. Newman offers excellent suggestions and alternatives when appropriate. He wants whats best for my face and not the bottem line.The office staff, Lisa, Wendy, and Elicia are always so warm and friendly.

      I was seen by Dr. Newman minutes after arrival and got a full description of my procedure and ways to to keep maintenance of my skin/anti-aging regimen. He has an outstanding bed-side manner and is patient-centric in his recommendations. I highly recommend him.

      Dr. Newman did a fantastic job, Since I had never done anything like this it was a bit different than I had expected, but everything came out great. I'm very happy with the results. Dr. Newman is obviously a professional.

      Dr Newman has performed numerous treatments for me...both minor and major. He is really user friendly and skilled beyond any other plastic surgeon I have encountered. I have referred many friends and they are ALL thrilled! He is very up to date with the most current procedures and never gives you an overdone look. Many doctors pass on procedures to assistants but Dr Newman does most procedures himself which is a big plus. It is well worth your time for a consult.

      Dr. Newman was highly recommended to me. After interviewing 3 plastic surgeons, I chose Dr. Newman because he is well qualified, has lots of experience, and a good bedside manner. His before and after photos speak for themselves.

      Here is some input from a “guy”, cuz it isn’t quite like we can ask one of our buddies at the gym, or the barbershop. While it is possibly finally possible to talk about psychotherapy, a “facelift” is for women!!! I am in my 60s and had my eyelids “done” and Facetitle on my turkey neck 35 days ago. I am extremely happy with the result. The look: this is not what we think of as a “facelift.” It is much less. I didn’t erase 10-15 years off my appearance, I erased 5-7 years. A very natural look.

      I recently had a face/neck-lift performed by Dr. Newman and the results exceeded my expectations. If anyone is considering surgery with Dr. Newman- do it! He provides great pre-surgery counseling and post- surgery care and follow- up. I have been seeing Dr. Newman for close to 10 years for various treatments and I have complete confidence in his advice and skills.
