Receiving a breast cancer diagnosis was devastating. I wasn’t even 40 yet, was in a new relationship, and had no immediate family that lived in the same state for support. I spent the first few days frantically searching for doctors. Despite the alcohol and crying fits, this was a very thorough search. I read through testimonials, called offices, and visited potential doctors. What I didn’t know before the diagnosis is that good doctors tag team. This means, if you find a Surgical Oncologist you trust, that Surgical Oncologist has a go-to Plastic Surgeon that they trust as well. The first surgery (double mastectomy), if you decide to go with expanders and later implants, is done in two parts. The first half, the Surgical Oncologists removes your breast tissue, tumor(s), and nipples if you had to have them removed. The second half belongs to the Plastic Surgeon who inserts the expanders.

My wife had a bilateral mastectomy 2 years ago and Dr. Newman did a perfect job in the reconstruction. She looks and feels great due to his attention to detail and unbelievable skill set. She looks incredible both dressed and undressed and no one can tell she even had surgery. Dr. Newman was patient, caring and understanding both before and after the procedure which made the process a little easier. We would highly recommend him to family and friends!

Dr. Newman is the best!! He is very friendly, easy to talk to, makes sure you are comfortable with the plans and explains everything throughly. He uses his knowledge and experience so that you will have the best outcome possible. I could not be happier with how it all turned out. After going through the hell that is cancer, chemo, radiation and multiple surgeries you can lose a piece of yourself with all the changes your body goes through. Dr Newman helped give me my confidence back.

Not enough space here to talk about what a wonderful experience I had and how lucky I was to find Dr Newman. It's been a year of my mommy makeover and I love my body!!! I look better than I did before even having kids. My tummy is flat, breasts are back where they belong and love handles are gone. Thank you, thank you Dr Newman and his amazing staff! If you are looking for a caring, professional and perfectionist surgeon look no further, you have found the right guy.

I cannot thank Dr. Newman and his wonderful staff enough for the amazing results from breast reconstruction after a double mastectomy. Dr. Newman is everything one would hope for in a doctor...kind, calm, answers any and all questions, and above all, his work is second to none. If you are looking for a top notch plastic surgeon in the South Bay, look no further.

I will be forever grateful to Dr. Newman for the amazing job he did with my reconstructive surgery. His sweet and calm demeanor made a challenging situation, much easier. He always took his time to answer all my questions and address my concerns. I was given realistic expectations regarding the surgery, but then he delivered above and beyond with amazing results. The surgery was much easer than I had imagined, with only minimal (well managed) discomfort. Afterwards a recovery room nurse told me

I LOOOVE DR. NEWMAN For all my life I've been insecure, depress because my breast were oversized and now since I had surgery with Dr. Newman I'm more spicy, more athletic. Dr. Newman did an amazing job, no pain. Dr. Newman gave me another chance at being young and no more insecurities or depression. Dr. Newman gave me the size I've always dreamed of and now I got it , it's hard not to SHOW OFF his amazing work of art!!
