After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, I found out I needed bilateral mastectomies (cancer gene, cancer in both breasts, etc.). After much research and several recommendations, I chose South Bay Plastic Surgeons for my reconstruction. Enter the imperturbable Dr. Newman, stage right.

Throughout the process, Dr. Newman has been a tremendous help, despite the ginormous list of questions I've brought to each appointment (which he always patiently goes through with me).

At a time when I didn't need any more stress, it was fortunate that I found such a laid-back, amazingly skillful plastic surgeon. He genuinely cares about his patients' welfare and is deservedly enthusiastic about his work. The entire process felt like a collaboration, and the results are excellent.

I would recommend Dr. Newman and the staff of SBPS to anyone, without hesitation.

For a very long time I wanted to get liposuction of the flanks ("love handles"). Finally, I made the decision to do it but I was extremely nervous about choosing a doctor. I was referred to Dr. Michael Newman of South Bay Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Newman helped me feel at ease from the very beginning. He answered my long list of questions and he was very honest about the outcome, recovery and risks. Just three weeks after my first consultation I was at the surgical center getting ultrasonic liposuction of the flanks. The entire procedure took about an hour and I was on my way home shortly after. In the weeks after the surgery, Dr. Newman was kind enough to call me and ask how I was doing and to respond to my concerns. It's been 6 months since the surgery and I cannot be happier with the results. The difference is drastic and I'm only upset that I waited so long to get it done.

If I ever get plastic surgery again (and I might), I will definitely go back to Dr. Newman.

To say Dr. Newman and the whole staff at South Bay Plastic Surgeons are amazing, well it would simply be an understatement. I had rhinoplasty done by dr Newman (April 2011) and I couldn't be happier. I had a few consultations with other plastic surgeons prior to seeing Dr. Newman, and I was so turned off by the rude staff or the pushy sales pitch, but that all changed when I met Dr. Newman.

Dr Newman easesed all my fears and answered all my questions, as well as took his time to explain the details of what the surgery and recovery would entail. Never once did I feel pressure to book the surgery, nor did I recieve annoying phone calls asking when I was going to book surgery (as I did by other plastic surgery offices).

The outcome of the surgery was better than I could have ever expected. If I knew that I would be this happy than I would of had the surgery years ago. Dr Newman is simply amazing and a true artist.He took what I had and made a softer more beautiful version of myself rather than trying to make me look like someone else. There is simply not a bad or negative thing I could possibly say about Dr. Newman or the staff at South Bay Plastic Surgeons!

Dr. Newman is an amazing surgeon. I had breast augmentation 4 months ago and I could not be happier with my results. I nursed two babies and was left with one breast much larger than the other. I was incredibly embarrassed by the way they looked. I was referred to Dr. Newman by a friend who only had wonderful things to say about him and his work. When I met him, I knew right away I wanted him as my surgeon. He was patient, attentive, and understood exactly what I wanted. I can't say enough wonderful things about him and his staff.

I was referred to South Bay Plastic Surgeons by a friend for my breast augmentation surgery. They were beyond wonderful. Everything was easy and they are so accommodating with scheduling. Dr. Newman was amazing. Very professional and thorough. I truly felt that they cared so much about their patients and their reputation. I have already referred others. They are the best!

Let me start by saying, "If you are looking for a good plastic surgeon, then you have found him!" I did tons of research before having my 15-hour double mastectomy and DIEP surgery, and I am 100% completely satisfied with Dr. Michael Newman's work. I had a good friend who was a patient of Dr. Newman's several years ago. She raved about how great he was and how the nurses all came to her room to admire his "work". While I didn't want that kind of attention, I did want that kind of result.

So I did some research online, and his resume really speaks for itself.  He has the training.  He has the awards.  He teaches at UCLA.  On paper, Dr. Newman is the one you want.  However, his resume doesn't truly reflect what an amazing doctor he is.  He is so caring and personable!  I had a million questions, and he answered them in a way that made me feel like he was truly interested in my well-being, and not just business.

Dr. Newman visited me each day during my week-long hospital stay.  He made sure the nurses were taking great care of me.  After he left, the nurses always commented on how thoughtful Dr. Newman was of his patients and how respectful he was to the nurses.  In their minds, he took patient care to the next level.

After I returned home from the hospital, I had many more questions.  Dr. Newman answered them by phone and email so that I didn't have to make a painful trip to his  office while I was recovering.  I started jogging and resumed normal life only 2  1/2 months after my surgery.  Like my friend, I get lots of compliments regarding the "work" Dr. Newman did on me.  I am so pleased with his care and results! I am happy to recommend him to ANYONE!!!  Call me if you need me to answer any other questions about Dr. Newman, but he is honestly the BEST!!!!

I had an excellent experience at sbps and with Dr. Newman. I went for a consultation for a breast reduction feeling very fearful and uneasy. In that initial meeting Dr, Newman sensed how I felt and proceeded to make me feel completely comfortable and helped me feel completely confident in my decision to have the procedure. Every visit after that (including directly before my surgery) Dr. Newman was caring, compassionate and showed exceptional bedside manner. He helped me feel that the decision to have the surgery was the best decision I ever made. I'm very happy with the results and would recommend sbps and specifically Dr Newman to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon.

Dr. Newman is a great surgeon and very easy to talk to. He really listens to what his patients want. I had a rhinoplasty surgery done and the results have been wonderful--and very natural looking, which is exactly what I was hoping for. The entire staff at South Bay Plastic Surgeons is friendly and comforting. It was the best surgery experience I could have asked for.

I had liposuction with Dr. Newman several months ago and could not be happier with the results. He listens to what your needs are and suggests the procedures that would best satisfy what you are looking for. You truly get a sense that he wants what is best for you and not just to line his pockets! I highly recommend him!!!

I could not be happier with my results. Dr. Newman and his staff have been wonderful. My breast augmentation went extremely smooth and my recovery has been so fast. The size is exactly what I wanted and have amazing results. Also, Dawn was great throughout the entire process and very accommodating and so kind. I highly recommend Dr. Newman and this practice to anyone.

I am pleased to write this testimonial for the staff at Personal Image Center. Five weeks ago I had the resurfacing laser procedure performed by Dr. Newman. From the start, Dr. Newman was attentive, helpful, and informative. He was even more wonderful post procedure, calling me at home and having me check in for weekly office visits. I am very pleased with the results and thank Dr. Newman for assisting in my healing. The entire staff, in particular, Cosmetic Patient Care Coordinator Dawn, was accommodating and thoughtful.
