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. ...Read More

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...Read More

I know that I am in good hands and will be listened to when working with Dr. Newman. I do not want to look different, just better.

Absolutely great! Regained peripheral vision. People have noticed that I have blue eyes now after eye surgery!

my expectations were exceeded. Dr. Newman is an artist and excellent plastics doctor! His staff was wonderful. I would invite anyone to find a more accomplished plastic surgeon!

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 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...Read More

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...Read More
