Dr. Paulsen is very kind and professional. He explained the procedures I was having with great detail and answered all of my questions. My surgery was wonderful and I am so happy with my results.

Dr. Paulsen performed breast augmentation on me in Feb 2016. I have 3 children and breastfed them each for at least a year, which left my breast tissue virtually non existent. My OB/GYN recommended him. Dr. Paulsen is professional and listened to all my concerns and answered any questions I had. I was able to show him the results I wanted through pictures and he delivered PERFECTLY. I couldn't be happier with results. Post op care was phenomenal as he called to check on me at home.

Dr. Paulsen is terrific! He is an expert at what he does, and came highly recommended. He was part of a team that included another surgeon and an oncologist, all from different hospitals/systems. They worked together flawlessly. Thorough, funny and has very high standards. His staff is wonderful! Very professional, but still personable. My family waited in surgery waiting room for hours during my procedure. Dr. Paulsen was the only surgeon who came there to talk to them after, all day!

I went to Dr. Paulsen for my breast augmentation and I am so glad I did! Dr Paulsen took the time to answer every single one of my questions. He never made me feel like I was asking dumb questions or that he didn?t have time for me. He spent as much time with me as I needed. My biggest concern was choosing the wrong size. We discussed in depth at several different appointment what I wanted. He also had me print and rank pictures so that he was sure what I wanted to look like. Dr Paulsen gave me

I chose Dr. Paulson for my breast augmentation. He is board certified and I could not be happier with my entire experience. He is caring, compassionate, and highly skilled. You will be in good hands with him. If you are on the fence in choosing a surgeon, I suggest you schedule a free consult with him before you decide, I am so glad I did.

I am the third generation in my family to use Dr. Paulsen. I first met him in the ER when my daughter was bitten in the face by the family pet.Today she has a faint scar where once there was no skin.Some years later my mother had Dr.Paulsen do a neck lift and repaired another surgeon's mistake.When I decided to have a brow lift and blepharoplasty there was no decision to be made.He is direct but kind, a perfectionist.Who better to be a perfectionist than someone working on your face.
