Once I found Dr. Kolker I immediately knew he was the one.

Dr. Kolker is the most talented, brilliant and technically perfect breast surgeon I've ever seen. I am a registered nurse who has been working with plastic surgeons for almost 9 years.

I have had the opportunity to work alongside some of the very best. When it came time for me to find a surgeon I literally spent over a year just doing research. Once I found Dr. Kolker I immediately knew he was the one. Dr. Kolker made me feel extremely comfortable and at ease during the entire process. He is obviously a perfectionist but also a genius. You honestly couldn't ask for anything better when it comes to a plastic surgeon. I had a previous breast augmentation by another doctor and I knew my revisional surgery would be difficult and involved. I had consulted with two other highly regarded surgeons but hadn't felt comfortable with anyone until I met with Dr. Kolker. When you are doing something on your body that changes it forever you have to go to the best. Nothing else matters. Not cost, logistics or scheduling. Dr. Kolker literally is the best. I can say this from a personal point of view but also a professional one. I've seen first-hand what's out there and I am so glad to have found him. I love my results and now I get to walk around with the best breasts on the planet!

I felt so, so much better and relieved.

I found Dr. Kolker online and I knew that if I was going to do this, that he would be my doctor. During my consultation, I could see right away that he is not only a talented doctor but a true artist and that settled it.

Knowing that I chose the best helped me remain clam during the time leading up to my surgery date (which I think is really important). When I told my OBGYN that I was having an augmentation - she asked me if I chose a doctor. I said yes, Dr. Adam Kolker. She replied - That was exactly who I was going to recommend. She said I was in excellent hands and that she is truly excited for me. Dr. Kolker's staff is extremely pleasant; Jillian was available at a moment’s notice whenever I had a question. Jacki was sweet, professional and very helpful with choosing size. I am also very grateful for their flexibility. A day before my surgery (yes one day) I had several unfortunate circumstances come about that would have made going through with my surgery the following day very challenging. I did not want to actually postpone after waiting so long!!! I called Jillian to talk it through and she helped me make the inevitable decision so much easier. I knew I had to move my date and she reassured me that it was the wiser decision and that the time would go quickly plus no penalty at all. I felt so, so much better and relieved. It was definitely the best choice in so many ways (too long to go into but trust me). I would not hesitate to do it all over again. I think back to the day as fun and exciting. Positive and happy experience all around with gorgeous results!

I am more than just pleased with my results. Dr. Kolker did such a wonderful job.

I am so happy that I finally had my breast augmentation and feel so thankful that I took the time to find Dr. Kolker! On the day of my consultation, as I sat in Dr. Kolker's office discussing what kind of results I wanted, I knew that I had found the right doctor for my breast augmentation surgery.

Not only did he understand my needs, but he also allayed any fears that I had regarding the actual breast augmentation surgery. I left his office feeling so excited that I was finally going to do something that I had thought about for 3 or 4 years! All of the thinking, researching, procrastinating, and frustration of not being happy with my breast size was finally being put to rest and being replaced with a feeling of excitement.

During the eight weeks prior to my breast implant surgery, I felt total support from Dr. Kolker's staff. Jacki and Jillian helped me to feel at ease and were always available to answer any questions or concerns. As it got closer to my surgery date, I began to get nervous again but Dr. Kolker's compassion and ability to effectively communicate his knowledge, put my fears to rest. When the day of my surgery actually arrived, I felt totally prepared and this is because I had been given all of the information that I needed about my breast augmentation, was able to express any and all of my feelings to Dr. Kolker, Jillian, and Jacki, and was treated with complete care the whole way through.

I can honestly say that when I look back on the day of my surgery and the days that followed, it was a really positive experience. Going under anesthesia was the scariest part for me because I had it once before and had a really negative experience. But because I had discussed this with Dr. Kolker, he worked with their anesthesiologist (who was also great!) so that I had the perfect result and I woke up from surgery feeling fine. The next few days were spent resting, getting lots of nice attention, and loving my new breasts, even though they were in the healing process. I have nothing but positive memories of this time, which is the exact opposite of what I feared.

It is now four months later and I am more than just pleased with my results. Dr. Kolker did such a wonderful job of giving me just the right size for my body build, so that my breasts look completely natural and the shape is beautiful! I had told myself that if I have a breast augmentation, I'm going to find the best doctor possible, and I feel that I definitely accomplished that.

The entire experience was so easy, and my results are amazing.

I have one word to describe Dr. Adam Kolker and his staff: amazing. I had been researching breast augmentation for years, and had even met with several doctors but never felt confident to go through with it - until I met with Dr. Kolker.

I must say that before my breast augmentation consultation I was really impressed by Dr. Kolker's credentials and before and after pictures, but as soon as I got to the office, I was blown away by the warmth of the staff and the calming atmosphere. When I met Dr. Kolker, he was charming and thorough, and incredibly informative and honest. I knew immediately that this was where I was going to have my procedure. I was always an A cup and hoped for a C cup, but did not want to look "implanty". My results are so awesome!! I had silicone breast implants and they look so incredibly natural. I just love them. The surgery and recovery was so much easier than I expected. Almost 1 year later, I feel like a new woman. I was inspired to write this because I met a friend recently who confided that she had her breasts done (she looks amazing too), and that she had the best surgeon... and as I began to insist that mine was the best, it turns out that both of us had Dr. Kolker! He is an artist, a professional and a true gentleman. The girls in the office are incredible too. The entire experience was so easy, and my results are amazing. Cannot thank him enough!

I could not have dreamed of a better place to have my procedure.

Having a breast augmentation is the best decision I have ever made. I visited several New York City plastic surgeons and after meeting Dr. Kolker and his staff I knew he was going to be my surgeon. I am just thrilled everyday with my results.

The in-office surgical experience is luxury at its best. It is the most beautiful office I have ever seen and Dr. Kolker is just awesome. He was always available to me throughout the process, and even called me the night before and after the surgery! The recovery room was very private, elegant and so comfortable. I could not have dreamed of a better place to have my procedure.

The surgery was so easy! I met Dr. Kolker early in the morning on a Friday and was home before noon the same day. The pain after surgery was minimal. I took it easy for a couple of days and was back at work the following week. I was pleasantly surprised by how the recovery was so effortless.

It has been 8 months since my operation and I feel wonderful! My breasts are perfect. The level of care and service that I received from Dr. Kolker and his staff throughout my pre and post-surgical process was the ultimate experience. I would highly recommend him to anybody who is considering plastic surgery. Not only did he help change the way I look, his wonderful work changed the way I feel. I will never be able to thank him enough; he is not only a great surgeon but a true gentleman!

Dr. Kolker is a true genius.

I have wanted to get breast implants my entire life. There was a time when all of my friends developed and the same never seemed to happen for me. I researched the topic for years and with much fear and skepticism, at the age of 20 I went for my first consultation.

The office was beautiful, and all of the staff had incredible bedside manner. I must say I knew I was in good hands the second Dr. Kolker walked in the room. He was warm, professional, and truly listened to what it is that I really wanted. Jackie, his nurse is just as smart as she is pretty. She made me feel safe and allowed me to feel as though she was with me every step of the way. I was completely flat-chested and very petite so I did not want to be ostentatious and get anything that wouldn't fit my frame. I asked to be a full B small C and that is exactly what I am today. Dr. Kolker is a true genius. What I feel separates him from the rest of the doctors I have met is two things. The first being that he doesn't push anything on his patients, he simply listens. The second and most important is that he is not only a gifted surgeon but a true artist. He sculpted my breasts to look completely natural and beautiful. He truly changed my life and my level of confidence. Recovery, although different for everyone, for me thankfully was very easy. I was out of the house after a few days and even the days right after surgery weren't bad at all. I would recommend Dr. Kolker to anyone and have complete confidence in his work.

Your eye for detail and complete professionalism is outstanding.

I have NEVER written a review in my entire life; even for a film or meal! But three weeks after my breast augmentation I feel I have to say to the world that Dr Kolker and his staff are the best!

From my appointment to now sitting at home with perfect, natural looking 32Cs (I was a 32A). I am the happiest I have ever been, or could imagine to be with the results. I only wish I had heard about him, Jacki and Jillian before! They really held my hand the whole way through the process and the end result (which I had spent YEARS worrying about being a petite girl) is simply amazing and exactly what I wanted. Thank you Dr Kolker. Your eye for detail and complete professionalism is outstanding. You deserve more than the cupcakes I bought.

You will instantly see that he is passionate about plastic surgery

Going through with any kind of surgery can be extremely nerve racking, even if it is an elective breast augmentation procedure. That is when choosing the right "team" will make all the difference. I am so happy to have found Dr Kolker and his team! They truly have made my experience special.

Visiting the office is always pleasant, unlike your typical visit to the doctor. The staff is always so cheerful and charming and when you first meet Dr. Kolker you will instantly see that he is passionate about plastic surgery. Dr Kolker and his staff always make you feel comfortable and are always available and eager to answer any questions you might have.

You can count on Dr Kolker to give you the results you are looking for because he genuinely cares about the happiness of his patients. Make a consultation and you will see for yourself!!

I am very, very happy with the results of my breast augmentation surgery. This has been the best thing that I have ever done for myself!

Dr. Kolker and his staff are warm, knowledgeable, and responsive. My own GYN, (who referred me), didn't notice that I had implants because they looked so natural. I've already referred a friend to Dr. Kolker.

They are life changing.

After a pretty substantial search for a plastic surgeon, a colleague of mine recommended Dr. Adam Kolker. Breast augmentation was something I have always wanted.

Finally, at almost 30 years old, I decided to move forward with it. Dr. Kolker was extremely patient with me and went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable with my decision. It's been exactly one year and I could not be happier with my breast augmentation results. My new breasts are absolutely gorgeous and seemingly natural. They are life changing. I highly recommend at minimum a consultation with Dr. Kolker if interested in breast augmentation. He will change your life too.

I feel great about the way my body looks and feels.

As I am approaching the one-year anniversary of my breast augmentation, I could not be happier with my results! Dr. Kolker and his staff were so helpful and supportive in helping me making my decision, and I cannot thank them enough.

I was always self-conscious about my breast size, I never felt like they fit my body type. After my breast surgery, I feel great about the way my body looks and feels. As an avid runner and work out enthusiast I was worried about my new look and what it would feel like to work out with bigger breasts. I am happy to report that the girls have not affected me in any negative way. Throughout the entire process Dr. Kolker and his staff were always available to answer any of my questions, and help me in any way I needed. I always felt comfortable in the office. I am so happy with my decision and want everyone at Dr. Kolker's practice to know how much I appreciate them! You guys are the best!

I cannot say enough good about this man. He is a true artist, a perfectionist and a GENIUS.

After being unhappy with the shape of my tuberous breasts for my entire life, I finally decided to have them fixed. Dr. Kolker was the first and ONLY doctor I ended up consulting with as I found no need to look further - I had already found the best.

His impressive credentials speak for themselves but it was the palpable feeling of warmth and kindness from Dr. Kolker that put me most at ease with my breast augmentation decision. Dr. Kolker, Jillian and Rachel went above and beyond from my initial visit to make sure that I was 100% comfortable and that all my questions were answered. I never felt rushed or dismissed in any way. Dr. Kolker and everyone on his staff exude compassion and patience and this was extremely important to me in choosing my plastic surgeon. Because I knew I was in the most capable of hands with Dr. Kolker, I was never concerned about not achieving the results I had hoped for or even about the pain following my procedure. On the day of my breast surgery, my main and only concern was the anesthesia. Not surprisingly, the anesthesiologist turned out to be just as amazing as Dr. Kolker and the rest of his staff. He was incredibly warm and friendly and took the time to talk to me before my surgery about exactly what he would be doing and to address any concerns that I had. By the time they brought me into the OR, any fears that I had were gone - I was completely at ease. The entire experience was extremely positive and could not have gone more smoothly. I never had any bad side effects from the anesthesia and no nausea, no vomiting and very little pain following surgery. In fact, by day 3 I was off the pain meds completely. I am now 3 weeks post-op and this whole experience has been life changing. The results are leaps and bounds above anything I could have ever imagined and I could not be more thrilled. Dr. Kolker exceeded my expectations in every way and I could not be more thankful to him. I cannot say enough good about this man. He is a true artist, a perfectionist and a GENIUS. He has changed my life!

I continue to have nothing but the most positive feelings about my "new" self.

As I approach the one-year anniversary of my breast augmentation, I continue to have nothing but the most positive feelings about my "new" self. I constantly think about how wonderful Dr. Kolker and the rest of his staff are and thank everyone again!

Dr. Kolker and his team were so very helpful and caring throughout the entirety of my time with them, from my initial breast surgery consultation to my last post-operative visit. I could go on and on about how much he changed my life for the better, but I can sum up my feelings and experiences with one anecdote. Today is the three month anniversary of the birth of our son Wylie. He was born on January 4, 2011, almost exactly 41 weeks after my procedure. (I would say that's a pretty resoundingly positive response to the debut of my gorgeous new boobs!) (For the record, my "girls" came through pregnancy fabulously, and are holding up marvelously well through breast-feeding!). I just wanted to tell you that I was thinking warmly about you all, and I wanted to say thank you again.

I look and feel great!

I had put off my long desired breast augmentation out of fear until I met Dr. Kolker. The minute I sat down with him I was at ease and knew I was ready to go forward with enhancing my look.

Dr. Kolker's reputation of being an incredible surgeon is well known but his humble personality and caring nature are truly what makes the entire process of plastic surgery exciting and enjoyable. In addition, he surrounds himself with a staff of compassionate and gracious professionals who are there for you and willing to hold your hand every step of the way. I wish I had met Dr. Kolker and his staff years ago because I look and feel great!

Going there feels like a mini vacation.

After years of thinking of about breast enhancement surgery I decided to finally make it happen! Before visiting Dr. Kolker's office, I consulted another surgeon but did not feel comfortable with him or his staff.

Dr. Kolker is not only a great physician but is also very personable and has good energy about him. The same applies to all the nice ladies who work in his practice. After my breast augmentation, Jillian was always there for me with any questions I had. It has been a year and a half since I had my breast surgery and I am very happy with my results. I always look forward to coming back, now for facials and laser treatments. The design aesthetic and the colors used in Dr. Kolker's office are also very soothing and the overall feel is very luxurious. Going there feels like a mini vacation.

My breast augmentation results are completely natural.

For years I've researched breast augmentation surgery in the quest for the perfect breast augmentation surgeon. Once I found Dr. Kolker's website and saw his amazing before and after pictures, I was certain he would be my number one choice. I called the office to schedule a consultation and ask a few basic questions.

The wonderful Director of Patient Services, Jillian, was incredibly patient and answered every possible question I could think of, which truly spoke to the competency and professionalism of the staff overall. At that point, all it took was one consultation to meet Dr. Kolker and his incredible team to solidify my decision. That very day I completed all the paperwork and scheduled my surgery for 2 months later. Every single step in this process was smooth and completely stress-free, both pre and post-op. On the day of surgery I was greeted by the kind and professional Nurse Jackie, who had been very involved in the process up to that point, so I was completely comfortable. Because we had discussed my aesthetic goals in detail beforehand, I trusted that Dr. Kolker knew exactly the results I was looking for. I am 6 months post-op and my breast augmentation results are completely natural and proportionate to my frame. Even as soon as one week post-op, I was extremely pleased, and returned to work after just 5 days! I am a young professional, and people who didn't know me before would never guess that I had breast surgery. I would urge any woman considering a breast augmentation to treat herself to the very best. Dr. Kolker is an amazing surgeon who cares about his patients, and has surrounded himself with a truly outstanding team.

Beautiful breasts that exceeded my expectations.

A year after my breast augmentation surgery, I met the man who is now my fiancé. The first time he saw me topless, he exclaimed, "Your breasts are perfect".

After I recovered from breast augmentation surgery, people constantly asked me if I had lost weight, that was because my body, post-surgery, was evenly proportioned and not just with bigger breasts, but with beautiful breasts that exceeded my expectations.

I may be 47 years old, but thanks to Dr. Kolker's deft skills as a plastic surgeon; I have the breasts of an 18 year old.

I am very happy with my breast augmentation.

I had been thinking about getting a Breast Augmentation for quite some time and did extensive research, but was still too nervous to actually go through with the procedure. I talked about it with my husband and he recommended I make a consultation appointment with Dr. Kolker.

Several years ago he went to Dr. Kolker for a procedure and was extremely happy with the whole experience and his results. Dr. Kolker and his staff put me at ease and answered all my questions. I was still nervous, but never felt pressured and was encouraged by Dr. Kolker to take my time in deciding. When I called the office with any questions I felt the staff went out of their way to be helpful and definitely made me feel like more than just another patient. I booked my breast surgery and felt I was well taken care of from beginning to end. I am very happy with my breast augmentation results and would highly recommend Dr. Kolker to any of my friends.

I still smile to myself when I catch my reflection in the mirror.

I never thought of myself as a "plastic surgery" person but I couldn't help seeing my body change in ways I just wasn't happy with. This wasn't about vanity; it was about seeking peace with myself to enable me to get on with other, more important things in life. When I was happy with my breast size, I hated my hips; when I worked out and lost weight around my thighs, my breasts were almost non-existent. So I did my homework and decided to do something about it.

I investigated with the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, and found Dr. Adam Kolker. My first appointment with him was grueling - I asked all kinds of questions, including moral questions about his personal philosophy; and for each question Dr. Kolker had a thoughtful and insightful answer. He was patient and well-measured. I think my first consultation lasted over 2 hours. Then, after over a year of thinking about it, I decided to go ahead with the breast augmentation and throughout the entire procedure, Dr. Kolker and his office were caring, professional and detailed. My boyfriend was probably more nervous than I was, and they were accommodating of his queries and questions.

The surgery itself was exactly as I had been told and the recovery was also as I had expected. I worked from home for a few days and was back in the office within a week. And as for the result - amazing! I still smile to myself when I catch my reflection in the mirror. I can finally wear clothes I never was able to before. My breasts are so natural-looking, and so perfectly proportioned, I catch women looking at me in the changing room at the gym who are internally scratching their heads, wondering if they are real or not. My scars completely healed within 3 months and now are absolutely invisible.

The personal attention, professionalism and treatment of me as an individual is what drew me towards Dr. Kolker and his staff, and what I recommend him to others for. If you have been struggling with your body image, I honestly recommend that doing the hard work of self-acceptance is key. I tried to do that, and realized I needed more. After overcoming the internal struggles, I can honestly say it was a good decision for me. I'm finally happy with my body and I can now use that part of my mind previously reserved for the express purpose of self-deprecation!

I would and will refer ANYONE to this office.

I began to think about having a Breast Augmentation when I was very young, but wanted to wait until I was sure the time was right. Being a doctor myself, I wanted someone who was compassionate, trustworthy, and able to realistically meet my expectations.

I LOVED Dr. Kolker's results in his before and after photos and read a bunch of his reviews-which were all glowing-so I knew I had to meet him. After three other consultations with New York breast surgeons, one of which was a friend of the family, I firmly decided on Dr. Kolker.

I felt in perfect hands, and now 5 months after my initial consultation and 2 weeks post op, I have the most beautiful and natural looking breasts and just the size I wanted. I seriously couldn't be any happier. I would and will refer ANYONE to this office. Thank you so much Dr. Kolker for your kindness, care and your incredible work. I'm so happy I trusted my instincts and chose you to be my surgeon! Words can't even express my gratitude.

I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am with my breast augmentation results. After having two children and breastfeeding for a total of five years, my body was definitely a little worn.

I must say that other than the money I spent on the breast pump, I've never had money better spent than with Dr. Kolker. From the initial consultation through the follow up appointments after the surgery, I have never been so pleased and satisfied with a doctor and the entire staff. Thank you so much Dr. Kolker, you positively changed my life.

Getting a breast augmentation was something I had always thought about doing. However, after giving birth to two children and breastfeeding for 2 1/2 years, it became something I fantasized about. I cannot begin to tell you how much better I feel after finally getting breast implants.

I now look in the mirror and feel proud of the way I look. I receive compliments all the time - not specifically for my breasts (although I do get those too). People tell me how great I look and how I have a certain glow to me. That glow is a renewed confidence that I wear every day now. My entire experience with Dr. Kolker and his team was such a pleasure and I will forever be grateful to all of them for changing my life.

If breastfeeding is a future consideration for you, then you need to speak with Dr Kolker.

The ability to breastfeed after breast surgery is highly dependent on the type of surgery and the skill of your surgeon. I had a breast lift and breast augmentation by Dr Kolker.

I have always been ecstatic with my results, but even more so since I've been able to successfully exclusively breast feed my very large baby boy. Given the involved nature of the surgery, the lactation consultants did not give me much hope. However, I was determined to try, because I knew how much emphasis Dr Kolker places on the technical aspects of the surgery and if at all possible, he tries to preserve the option for you. I am absolutely thrilled to let you know that I (and, of course, Dr Kolker) have proved the "experts" wrong by breastfeeding my son. If breastfeeding is a future consideration for you, then you need to speak with Dr Kolker. I am glad every single day that I did.

I have much more confidence now.

I spoke with several NYC plastic surgeons before making my decision to have a breast augmentation and breast lift, but none of them came close to the level of care and attention I received from Dr. Kolker.

I was always a little self-conscious in a bikini or backless top due to the sagginess of my breasts at such a young age. You have to put an immense amount of trust in a doctor when having a breast lift and breast augmentation, and I never had a second thought from the first time I walked into Dr. Kolker's office to the day I walked out of my breast surgery! I have much more confidence now and could not be happier with my decision.

I would not hesitate to use Dr. Kolker again.

My experience with Dr. Kolker has been nothing short of life changing. Having my breast augmentation and breast lift procedure has boosted my self-esteem and given me a confidence that I had not felt for years.

Dr. Kolker reshaped my body but also encouraged me to improve my overall health by adopting a sensible diet. Dr. Kolker's emphasis is always on natural beauty. He has impeccable instincts and always knows how to make you look your best. He is an absolute artist.

Throughout the process, from the initial consultation to the after-care visits, the entire staff has always been patient, attentive, caring, knowledgeable, and friendly. The office and surgical suite is always clean and comfortable. I would not hesitate to use Dr. Kolker again in the future and would recommend him highly to my very best friends and family.

I felt a huge relief. His professionalism and attentiveness is indescribable.

I could no longer condemn myself to a lifetime of insecurity and ugly padded bras. I began to research the best plastic surgeons, starting with New York Magazine's Best Doctors list. After looking at hundreds of pre & post breast augmentation images on several surgeons' websites, Dr. Kolker had the best work by far.

While I made several appointments with other surgeons for breast surgery, I immediately cancelled them after my first consultation with Dr. Kolker.

Being overweight most of my adult life, I couldn't help but envy those 'lucky' women with perfect bodies and perfect breasts. Having a fitness/nutrition guru for a boyfriend didn't help. With a lot of love and support, he encouraged me to simply start going to the gym with him and after months of weight training and proper nutrition habits, I improved my general health, finally had definition in my arms, legs and even abs...almost 'lucky'! I was in love and committed for the long term, no pun intended!

Unfortunately after months of all that hard work and sacrifice, my breasts took quite a beating and I discovered asymmetries in my breasts that I never noticed as it only became evident after I lost the weight. I had two absolutely different breasts, neither one pretty, on my new beautiful body. Desperately hoping no one would notice, I lived in ugly padded bras. I even slept in them when we had guests sleep over.

So there I was in Dr. Kolker's office, with an enlarged image of my asymmetrical breasts in various views on a big screen. It was surprisingly liberating. I was literally facing my fears and insecurities, while Dr. Kolker went over each asymmetry in great detail, how he'd approach it, possible risks and his recommendations. Although many would find this experience mortifying, I felt a huge relief. His professionalism and attentiveness is indescribable. The fact that he was able to make me feel like we were simply discussing a medical procedure and nothing more unusual than that was unbelievable.

And the staff completely exceeded my expectations! They were friendly, attentive and so helpful. I cannot count how many emails I sent them and with each email they were prompt to respond with valuable and detailed information and continue to encourage me to contact them with any other questions or concern.

It's been almost half of a year since my surgery and I absolutely love my breasts and so does my boyfriend. I get compliments on them all the time, many from women. What Dr. Kolker did with my breasts is a miracle. I continue to be athletic and to love my body, it is complete now and I'm officially 'lucky' and its thanks to Dr. Kolker and his staff. You will not regret it!

Dr. Kolker is simply the best in his field.

Dr. Kolker and his team impressed me from our very first encounter, and just continued to exceed my very high expectations in every way. I am a surgeon myself, so when I was finally ready for my abdominoplasty, breast lift and breast augmentation; I met with many plastic surgeons before choosing Dr. Kolker. He is a gentleman, an artist and an exceptional physician and surgeon.

I knew I had made the right choice as Dr. Kolker took the time during my consultation to listen to my concerns, thoroughly examine me, and genuinely care about what I was looking to accomplish. My surgery went beautifully and thanks to Dr. Kolker my body looks amazing! My breasts are the breasts I have always dreamed of having, and my abdomen is flat and hard and sculpted.

After my pregnancies, despite losing all of my weight, doing Pilates, running, and working with a trainer, nothing could reverse the effects three pregnancies had on my body. I had a large diastases, an umbilical hernia, stretch marks and a lot of excess skin and tissue. I used to cry when I would stand in my closet and try on clothes. Now, I can wear whatever I want and I don't have to live in Spanx like I did for four years. I am actually able to wear a bikini - something that I never thought would be an option for me again. After my breast and tummy surgery, I went back for some focal liposuction, and now I visit Dr. Kolker for Botox and injectables. I have referred friends and colleagues to Dr. Kolker as he is simply the best in his field for plastic surgery - just look at his before and after photos. In addition to his exceptional care, his whole office staff cared for me before, during, and after my procedures, and I am extremely thankful for their dedication and commitment.

So impressed at how natural and perfect my breasts were.

My experience with Dr. Adam Kolker and his staff exceeded all of my expectations. I first had thoughts of breast augmentation after the birth of my second child. I wanted to reclaim my body and was not happy with the way my breasts had decreased in size after each pregnancy making my body disproportionate.

Being small in frame I had concerns about how natural they would look. I wanted to fill out my tops, feel proud of my body but still look professional at work.

Dr. Kolker eased my mind from the moment we met. From the bedside manner that Dr. Kolker has to the warm and friendly staff that works in his office, the entire experience was the best I have ever had. They literally held my hand through the entire process making me feel like so much more than a patient. I looked forward to each of my appointments and left feeling so well taken care of and secure in my decision. I was taken aback at how involved Dr. Kolker was with each concern or question I had and how quickly he returned my calls- even at home. In the end, Dr. Kolker created the most natural and balanced look for my frame.

There is not a day that goes by that I do not wake up and smile over the results of my surgery. Getting dressed went from something that I didn't look forward to, to a happy experience because of how great I look and feel. When visiting my ObGyn for the first time since having my breast augmentation surgery I was thrilled to hear her reaction to my surgery - she was so impressed at how natural and perfect my breasts were for my body- she even asked me for Dr. Kolker's name and number so she could tell her other patients who were interested!

Since I can't get enough of Dr. Kolker and his amazing staff I have since gone back to the office on a monthly basis for facials, injectables and laser hair removal. I leave Dr. Kolker feeling like a mini-celebrity from the glowing results of the visits. He is so gentle and patient, I actually look forward to my Botox and Restylane treatments. They are the best I have experienced in the city and I get asked all the time what I use on my skin to look so bright and youthful.

Even my son has seen "Dr. Adam" for minor scrapes & cuts. He now insists that Dr. Adam is HIS Doctor making him a true family favorite.

My "mommy makeover" was the one thing I did for "me" after having children and it's the greatest gift I gave myself.

Thank you to Dr. Kolker and his wonderful team. You have given me such confidence and true happiness with my body and appearance. It's a gift that I am grateful for every single day!

When I met with Dr. Kolker, I knew he was the one!

I almost did not go to my consultation with Dr. Kolker, as I had seen three other Doctors in NYC for a breast augmentation and tummy tuck, and even though what they all had to say was similar, they just were not right.

Lastly, with low expectations I arrived at Dr. Kolker's office, what a surprise! This group of lovely people, smiling and happy in this beautiful environment, greeted me. When I met with Dr. Kolker, I knew he was the one! I remember going to dinner to meet my husband after my appointment and beaming at the table saying, "I found him".

It was not what he had to say, as I pretty much knew it all at this point, but how he talked me through it every step, professionally yet respecting of my own knowledge and concerns.

Preparation for my breast and tummy tuck surgery was a breeze. I met with Dr. Kolker that morning for my pre-op and I totally respected him as my surgeon but also as an artist so I gave him the freedom to create. Next thing I knew I'm waking up, calm and content and I have to say quite bubbly. I spent one night in the recovery room in the company of a lovely nurse and then packed up and began my recovery in the comfort of my home surrounded with my family.

The results could not have been better! I now have a six pack (never had that in my life before) and proportionate breasts that no longer depend on push-up bras. I feel fantastic! My follow-up visits have continued to meet all my expectations and beyond and I can whole heartedly say that any other procedure I may have done in the future will be with Dr. Kolker and his team. Thanks guys!

Walking into Dr. Kolker's office is like walking into a friend's home.

From the very first time that I stepped foot in Dr. Kolker's office and met him and the staff there, I was completely at ease. I had a breast augmentation, and the overall experience, from the consultation through my last check up after surgery, was wonderful.

Dr. Kolker and his staff were there to answer any questions at any time before and after surgery. I'm so pleased with how the surgery turned out. There was virtually no pain (only minor discomfort) and they look completely natural.

Since my first breast enlargement with Dr. Kolker was such a success, I went back to him for a Rhinoplasty. Again, another great experience. It looks as though I was born with this beautiful nose thanks to Dr. Kolker. I've also seen Dr. Kolker for Botox and Restylane and have seen the medical aesthetician for laser hair removal who does a great job and makes you feel very comfortable during laser procedures.

Walking into Dr. Kolker's office is like walking into a friend's home. Dr. Kolker, Jillian, Jacki and team are so friendly and the best at what they do. Surgery can be a scary thing, but not in this office... you couldn't find better care elsewhere.

I have perfect breasts! Dr. Kolker is a rock star!

I underwent breast augmentation about four months ago and proud to say that I have perfect breasts.

I went through many consultations before deciding on Dr. Kolker, and he blew me away by the consultation alone. From scheduling my appointment to my post op appointment, I would rate my experience 5 stars! His staff is so friendly and professional, and Dr. Adam Kolker is extremely talented.

I do not regret my decision with picking him. My breasts look natural, even after four months I have had the most amazing compliments, my breasts look so real and perfect. Dr. Kolker is a rock star!

Feeling amazing. Can't stop looking at my new girls!!! I think I'm in love. :)

REALSELF

I met a friend recently who confided that she had her breasts done (she looks amazing too), and that she had the best surgeon... and as I began to insist that mine was the best, it turns out that both of us had Dr. Kolker!

I have one word to describe Dr. Adam Kolker and his staff: amazing. I had been researching breast augmentation for years, and had even met with several doctors but never felt confident to go through with it - until I met with Dr. Kolker. I must say that before my consultation I was really impressed by Dr. Kolker's credentials and before and after pictures, but as soon as I got to the office, I was blown away by the warmth of the staff and the calming atmosphere.

When I met Dr. Kolker, he was charming and thorough, and incredibly informative and honest. I knew immediately that this was where I was going to have my procedure. I was always an A cup and hoped for a C cup, but did not want to look " implanty". My results are so awesome!! I had silicone implants and they look so incredibly natural. I just love them. the surgery and recovery was so much easier than I expected.

Almost 1 year later, I feel like a new woman. I was inspired to write this because I met a friend recently who confided that she had her breasts done (she looks amazing too), and that she had the best surgeon... and as I began to insist that mine was the best, it turns out that both of us had Dr. Kolker! He is an artist, a professional and a true gentleman. The girls in the office are incredible too. The entire experience was so easy, and my results are amazing. Cannot thank him enough!

I am so happy that I finally had my breast augmentation and feel so thankful that I took the time to find Dr. Kolker!

On the day of my consultation, as I sat in Dr. Kolker's office discussing what kind of results I wanted, I knew that I had found the right doctor.

All of the thinking, researching, procrastinating, and frustration of not being happy with my breast size was finally being put to rest and being replaced with a feeling of excitement.

Not only did he understand my needs, but he also allayed any fears that I had regarding the actual breast surgery. I left his office feeling so excited that I was finally going to do something that I had thought about for 3 or 4 years!

During the eight weeks prior to my breast augmentation surgery, I felt total support from Dr. Kolker's staff. Jacki and Jillian helped me to feel at ease and were always available to answer any questions or concerns. As it got closer to my surgery date, I began to get nervous again but Dr, Kolker's compassion and ability to effectively communicate his knowledge, put my fears to rest. When the day of my surgery actually arrived, I felt totally prepared and this is because I had been given all of the information that I needed, was able to express any and all of my feelings, and was treated with complete care the whole way through.

I can honestly say that when I look back on the day of my breast augmentation surgery and the days that followed, it was a really positive experience. Going under anesthesia was the scariest part for me because I had it once before and had a really negative experience. But because I had discussed this with Dr. Kolker, he worked with their anesthesiologist (who was also great!) so that I had the perfect result and I woke up from surgery feeling fine. The next few days were spent resting, getting lots of nice attention, and loving my new breasts, even though they were in the healing process. I have nothing but positive memories of this time, which is the exact opposite of what I feared.

It is now 2 years later and I am more than just pleased with my results. Dr. Kolker did such a wonderful job of giving me just the right size for my body build, so that my breasts look completely natural and the shape is beautiful! I had told myself that if I have a breast augmentation, I'm going to find the best doctor possible. I feel that I definitely accomplished that.

Although Moscow is a city in which one can find everything including great plastic surgeons, I flew over four thousand miles to see Dr. Kolker. Never did I regret this decision.

Dr. Kolker is not only the most attentive doctor but he also is a great professional who delivers promised results. It has been over two years after my breast augmentation and I am still very happy with the results.

He changed my life and couldn't have had a better experience.

To every woman who tries to make a change in her life, improving some aspect of her body that does not make her feel good about herself, I highly recommend to rely on Doctor Kolker and his staff.

My name is Valentina, I come from Italy and I was operated on a breast augmentation by Dr. Kolker on 10/16/18. I have faced a long journey for this intervention but the final result has been more than satisfactory. Dr. Kolker is really a professional and above all he proved to be very human. He explained everything to me in a very clear way taking into consideration my needs, carefully evaluating my physical structure trying to respect it with a proper breast. In fact, my advice is to rely completely on him because he really knows what is best for your body.

Furthermore, all the staff was so welcoming and helpful that I felt like I was at home. there was always someone ready to help me. I have enjoyed the professionalism of the surgeon and the availability of all staff, before, during and after the operation. To every woman who tries to make a change in her life, improving some aspect of her body that does not make her feel good about herself, I highly recommend to rely on Doctor Kolker and his staff. He changed my life and couldn't have had a better experience. All my love to everyone. Thank you!

The debilitating feeling of not needing to worry all the time about my body has transformed into this amazing and liberating sense of freedom to just be me.

Thank you Dr. Kolker for making the decision so easy. Seriously, anyone who chooses a different doctor and team to handle this kind of surgery is not getting everything they could be getting.

I went through years of trying to reconcile that the person I am is because of the body I was born with; that changing my body would in some way change my core and change me. It’s been almost a year after my surgery now and while I still have little daily insecurities, I no longer have this looming self-doubt and yearning for a more proportional body. These days, I think I feel more like myself because I don’t have those previous worries bringing me down. I never even consider whether clothes will fit right anymore as I know they just will.

That anxiety and stress finding the right bra or swimsuit top is all gone! The debilitating feeling of not needing to worry all the time about my body has transformed into this amazing and liberating sense of freedom to just be me. Thank you Dr. Kolker for making the decision so easy. Seriously, anyone who chooses a different doctor and team to handle this kind of surgery is not getting everything they could be getting. This whole experience from beginning to now has been one of the best decisions I have ever made, ever. Ever! I love my new breasts (they are PERFECT) and I love that Dr. Kolker and his team have been and always will be there for me. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!

I've seen Dr. Kolker for breast augmentation in 2009 (10 years and they're still in great shape) and again just yesterday for filler under my eyes.

(Absolutely no bruising and looks great!) Both times I had such an amazing experience and would recommend his services!

His staff is also wonderful! The nurse held my hand and talked to me the whole time to keep me distracted and comfortable. Thumbs up!

I had a breast augmentation in 2015 with Dr. Adam Kolker in NYC.

He was the only surgeon I consulted with, but I spent months beforehand researching online. I loved the consistently natural aesthetic of all of his results, and after meeting him in person I knew I didn't want to bother consulting with anyone else.


I was always unhappy either my breasts, not so much because of the small size, but because of the shape. I have moderate pectus excavatum (a chest wall deformity that causes the sternum to be concave) and it caused my breasts to be naturally far apart and kind of triangular/tuberous in shape. I also felt like my areolar complex was too big for the breast itself. I mainly wanted to be fuller and rounder and to soften my weird bony chest a bit so I would have more fashion choices in clothing.

Dr. Kolker told me that the implant size would be greatly limited by my chest wall anatomy, but that he thought he could achieve a good result and camouflage the chest depression a bit. I selected silicone implants at his recommendation, and the rest of the choices were made entirely by him- sub-muscular placement, smooth/round implants, areolar incision with lift. He gave me a size range but selected the final size during surgery.

The entire surgical process was exceptionally smooth and easy, and even more than a year later, I cannot stress how happy I am with the results. They are so much better than I had ever hoped for, and as natural as one could ever hope for a breast augmentation to look. Some people did notice, but a lot of people didn't.

Upside: I feel so "normal" and proportionate and comfortable in my skin. Downside: I spend so much more on clothes now that everything fits right off the rack!

I'm so grateful to talented Dr. Kolker and can't recommend him highly enough. Two of my girlfriends have had surgery with him as well and are equally enthusiastic fans.

My photos are not in his gallery and I don't really want to post them publicly, but if you have pectus excavatum and are considering implants, direct message me and I will share them. (I know I had a lot of trouble finding similar cases when I was doing research.)

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Kolker.

What differentiated him from amongst his peers was the comprehensive consultation.

I've had quite a long history with my breasts. I had a reduction, then a handful of years later, got implants. After ten years, they were ready to be replaced (one had ruptured and was encapsulated). I decided that I wanted to look for a new surgeon for this procedure. I painstakingly looked to the internet for reviews. Dr. Kolker stood out for his exceptional ratings and glowing reviews. I immediately booked a consultation.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Kolker. What differentiated him from amongst his peers was the comprehensive consultation. He spent nearly an hour with me discussing my objectives, measuring and photographing my breasts. He is meticulous and has an incredible eye. His manner is warm, and he is most generous with his time, and patient whilst answering any and all questions. His staff of nurses and patient coordinators are incredibly warm, helpful and responsive.

Another highlight was that his anesthesiologist is excellent. I had no nausea nor did I have that terribly drugged feeling when I awoke from surgery. I'm now 8 weeks post op and I can tell you from my two prior surgeries that I have never healed so quickly, nor with such ease. My results are truly spectacular, and have exceeded my expectations!

My new breasts are absolutely gorgeous and seemingly natural.

They are life changing. I highly recommend at minimum a consultation with Dr. Kolker if interested in breast augmentation. He will change your life too.

After a pretty substantial search, a colleague of mine recommended Dr. Kolker. Breast augmentation was something I have always wanted. Finally, at almost 30 years old, I decided to move forward with it. Dr. Kolker was extremely patient with me and went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable with my decision. It's been exactly one year and I could not be happier with my results.

As I am approaching the one-year anniversary of my breast augmentation, I could not be happier with the results!

Dr. Kolker and his staff were so helpful and supportive in helping me making my decision, and I cannot thank them enough.

I was always self-conscious about my breast size, I never felt like they fit my body type. After my surgery, I feel great about the way my body looks and feels. As an avid runner and work out enthusiast I was worried about my new look and what it would feel like to work with bigger breasts.

I am happy to report that the girls have not affected me in any negative way. Throughout the entire process Dr. Kolker and his staff were always available to answer any of my questions, and help me in any way I needed. I always felt comfortable in the office. I am so happy with my decision and want everyone at Dr. Kolker's practice to know how much I appreciate them! You guys are the best!

Possibly the BEST Surgeon Ever!!!

I've been on many consultations with surgeons in the NY Metro Area, but Dr. Kolker was, hands down, the best! I am so happy I went to him for my breast augmentation. I could not be happier.

Where do I even begin?

I can't recommend him enough to anyone interested in having this surgery done. Truly an expert. I'm so happy with my surgery and my self-confidence has definitely increased.

While it did take some time to get the initial consul with Dr. Kolker, it was well worth the wait.  His bedside manner and professionalism blew me away. He listened to my concerns, agreed with my own realistic image for a breast augmentation and fully supported it. He proceeded to answer all my questions without missing a beat.

After growing up extremely self-conscious of my pectus carinatum, Dr. Kolker did an amazing job on the surgery and was very thorough on the post-operative care. HIs staff, all very lovely and professional, made the process seamless and welcoming. I can't recommend him enough to anyone interested in having this surgery done. Truly an expert. I'm so happy with my surgery and my self-confidence has definitely increased.

For anyone considering Dr. Kolker for breast surgery - he is the guy!

Amazing eye for symmetry and what looks best with your body. Great bedside manner and just an all-around nice guy.

As I’ve appreciated everyone’s willingness to review on this site, I figured I would toss in my own review nearly 10 years post op! I went to Dr. Adam Kolker after months of research. He was my one and only in person consult - I knew the search was over. I went from an A cup to a big C. I had zero complications and have had wonderful results ever since. Coming up on the 10 yr Mark, I’ve been thinking about whether I need to consider a revision surgery at some point. Obviously, I will only be going to Dr. Kolker.

They still look great and feel soft. I might consider going a bit bigger and trying to get some “lift” for my nipple. For anyone considering Dr. Kolker for breast surgery - he is the guy! Amazing eye for symmetry and what looks best with your body. Great bedside manner and just an all-around nice guy. The office is also pristine and the staff is professional and kind.

Also - just to speak to his character - I really wanted to get another procedure when we consulted. At 23, he told me I really did not need that and we could always consider other procedures in the future. I think that speaks to his integrity as a surgeon, turning down a patient who is willing to pay for unnecessary procedures.

REAL SELF REVIEW

Figured would be helpful to write a review 7 years POST breast augmentation.

I believe it’s important to know how happy people are with their results after surgery but even more importantly many years later.

After all, no one wants to have to go through any surgical procedure unnecessarily nor prematurely. So, it’s been 7 years since my breast augmentation. First of all, I let Dr. Kolker pick the right size for me using his discretion and expertise. And he was right on the money. Not too big. Not too small. Perfect. Secondly, they look and feel the same as they did 7 years ago.

I hardly write reviews for anything but felt compelled to do so in this situation because I walk around noticing “botched up” jobs whether it be breast augmentation, face lifts, Botox injections etc. and it hurts me to see how many surgeons are out there who don’t know what they’re doing ( with the exception of course being women/men who don’t know when to stop crossing the line between “just right” and “overboard”).

Also, I truly admired and respected Dr Kolker for being “against” procedures for me I had requested or inquired about for many medical and/or logical reasons whereas other surgeons wouldn’t think twice and just do it for the money. That shows integrity - a quality lacking in many professions and in many people. This doctor is ethical and truly talented. He is the only one I recommend when I am asked for referrals.

I had breast augmentation with Dr Kolker over 6 years ago, and there isn't a single day that goes by that I'm not happy with my decision.

I've had women in changing rooms, even my OBGYN (a woman) comment how beautiful my breasts are. I've had people say they're the nicest boobs they've ever seen!

I went from a small 34B to a large 34C under the muscle, with under-arm incisions and absolutely NO scarring. Zero. Dr Kolker's entire office staff have remembered me ever since the procedure (6 years ago), and I am now considering a facelift with him.

Dr Kolker is meticulous, patient, a good listener, thorough, and utterly professional. His results speak for themselves. So happy I chose you, Dr Kolker!

He was an expert, a pure genius!

I trusted him from the start. Dr. Kolker was my 4th consultation and it was a no brainer. He talked me through everything!! All of his augmentations on the website look so natural.

I actually wanted more upper pole and liked higher profile. I wanted to be a full c. I had all of these ideas regarding ccs and he was like listen ... "Forget about ccs, forget about size. How do you want to look?" I tried on a lot of implants. It's so hard to tell and I was overwhelmed at every doctor. With Dr. Kolker he was like "I'm going to choose while you're on the operating table. We will try a few and whatever's beautiful and the prettiest, is what I'll choose. I loved that! I relinquished the power and totally trusted him.

On the day of the surgery he chose 325ccs high profile and when I woke up from surgery, I looked amazing!! I couldn't believe it. My friends were like "you're photoshopped, you can't look like this after waking up." Dr. Kolker came in and told me what he chose. The nurse said they tried 350 and it looked way too high and ridiculous. They lifted me up and was like "no way." Haha I wouldn't have wanted bigger. It's funny the first surgeon, highly respected, wanted to do 400 cc and insisted that it was the only way to go to get the desired look.

The second surgeon, said 350, I like her a lot but the office didn't do blood work prior to surgery and I thought that was strange. Thing is, actually when they did my blood work, I actually had an infection, a uti, so my white cell count was high. He gave me antibiotic and redid my blood work before surgery to make sure I was ok or it would have to have been rescheduled. Anyway, I'm barely in pain ... Doctor had me take a week’s worth of homeopathic remedies. I was petrified I would look awful ... But from the second I saw my breasts I knew I made the right decision. My girlfriends came over last night and they were like in awe of how natural they look! Hope my review is helpful! Good luck!

Everyday holds more excitement and discovery for me.

Dr. Kolker provided a window for me to see things I never thought about or imagined about myself.

Throughout my twenties and early thirties, I never considered plastic surgery. As my life evolved as a mother and person, I began to gain a better sense of myself and my body. I suddenly realized how tired I was of trying on dozens of clothes in dressing rooms just to find one thing that might work. After much reflection, I unwrapped many layers of why having a breast augmentation would change my life in a positive way. I began my search by asking friends, colleagues and my very trusted obgyn. Unmistakably, they are all came back with the same recommendation, Dr. Adam Kolker.

Before even meeting Dr. Kolker, I had already decided that he was going to perform my surgery. I am a person that double and triple checks anything related medically and I never even sought out a 2nd opinion. My expectations were exceeded when I finally met Dr. Kolker and his staff. I felt very safe in his state-of-the-art facility. The personalized care I received from each person in the office was substantial. It was an extraordinary experience that I can't describe in words to do justice. I am still amazed at how at ease I felt before and after my procedure. Dr. Kolker and his staff thought of every last detail to make my surgery go smooth and perfect.

Dr. Kolker always has an amazing bed side manner and I felt as if he were a professional friend, not just my Dr. Going through any type of plastic surgery is an emotional journey that has many twists and turns. I was so thankful that my hand was held by the staff and Dr. Kolker every step of the way. Every day that passes I am reassured with growing confidence about my body for the very first time in my life. The transformation was physical, however, deeply emotional as well. The results I have been blessed with are natural and beautiful. Dr. Kolker was able to weave his surgical expertise with his elegant taste as an artist in his work.

As excited as I was to have my new body, the fact that my surgery was complete was bittersweet for me. I had grown to love my time with all the office staff and they very much felt like family and friends. I am now embracing life with the excitement of my new shape and I have never felt better. I look forward to the next phase of my life and my continued high regard and professional relationship with Dr. Kolker and his incredible staff. The only regret I have is not making the decision to do my surgery sooner. Dr. Kolker provided a window for me to see things I never thought about or imagined about myself. Everyday holds more excitement and discovery for me.

The results you ask!!??

The results you ask!!?? ....

Researching doctors not only in LA and New York for several years before considering for breast augmentation, I was continually drawn back to Dr. Kolker's website. His before and after pictures were exactly what I was looking for!!! NATURAL!! After finally getting the courage to make my initial consultation appointment, I knew I had made the absolute right choice the minute I stepped foot into his office! His staff makes you feel right at home and part of the family!!

I felt absolutely no pressure at all to do or not to do the surgery! They simply took the time to answer ANY and ALL questions I had!! I was extremely skeptical and nervous! I was also one of those women that said "I will NEVER get my breast done!" Well, Dr. Kolker changed that! His bedside manner is so easy, comfortable, and most importantly GENUINE! His work, education and experience, SUPERIOR! Plus, after finding out that he donates his time to operation smile I was even more convinced of this exceptional man and doctor!

He discussed with me, in extent, all the options that were best for me given my body type, athletic background, and desire to maintain a high level of fitness! I am a personal trainer, yoga instructor, former gymnast , former professional dancer, and fitness competitor, so maintaining my fitness levels with NO limitations was EXTREMELY important to me!! I am 5" 5' 115lbs and started as a very lean A cup. I told him that I just wanted breasts that balanced my body because my clothing just didn't fit properly! We decided that a medium C cup, silicone, under the muscle would be best!

The results you ask!!?? .... BETTER than what I had could have ever imagined!! It has now been 2 years since my surgery, my tiny scar...2 inches under the breast... is GONE! They feel and look like the real deal! I am able to practice hot power yoga 3 days per week just as before, and my clothing and bathing suits fit better than ever!! Thank you Dr. Kolker for your amazing work and your amazing staff!!!

Being a doctor myself, I knew it was going to be hard to not scrutinize.

I wanted someone who was compassionate, trustworthy, and really made sure to meet my expectations with reality.

I originally began thinking of getting a Breast Augmentation as young as I could remember, but always wanted to wait until I was 30 to be sure I was doing it for the right reasons. When the year finally arrived, I started my search. Dr. Kolker was actual the first doctor that I even came across. I LOVED his results in his before and after photos and read a bunch of his reviews-which were all glowing-so I knew I had to go meet him for a consultation.

Being a doctor myself, I knew it was going to be hard to not scrutinize. I wanted someone who was compassionate, trustworthy, and really made sure to meet my expectations with reality. Going to three other consultations, one of which was a friend of the family (meaning also, major discount), I firmly decided on Dr. Kolker. I felt in perfect hands, and now 5 months after my initial consultation, and 2 weeks post op I have the most beautiful and natural looking breasts and just the size I wanted. I seriously couldn't be any happier. I would and will refer ANYONE to this office. Thank you so much Dr. Kolker for your kindness, care and your incredible work. Words can't even express my gratitude.

Dr. Kolker is truly an artist and has restored my body to what it was when I was in my twenties.

I wrote an extensive review about Dr. Kolker and his team for my tummy tuck, which was performed at the same time as my breast augmentation and lift.

Dr. Kolker is truly an artist and has restored my body to what it was when I was in my twenties. There is no sign left of my twin pregnancy or nursing the babies for all those years! My breasts look and feel natural. I am an athlete and didn't want to go huge. I wanted to look natural and restore the breast tissue I lost from breast feeding. He corrected an asymmetry during the procedure as well. I am so thankful for Dr. Kolker and his team. I can't imagine a better doctor out there: Dr. Kolker is highly skilled, compassionate, responsive and pays close attention to detail. His whole team is outstanding. So happy with my results!

I could not have picked a better plastic surgeon than Dr. Kolker. From the very beginning, I have been well cared for by Dr. Kolker and his staff.

He spent an enormous amount of time with my myself and my husband answering all of our questions during the consultation and was not pushy at all.

I had constant access to him and to his staff during the 11weeks until my surgery date. The Director of Patient Services is one of the sweetest, most knowledgeable and patient people I have ever met. She consistently got back to me about any of my concerns, or questions and put me at ease throughout this process. Stephanie, my nurse was wonderful and very attentive, even calling me several times after my procedure to check up on me.

Dr. Kolker called me personally on a Sunday to answer a question after my procedure and proceeded to give me his personal cell phone number so that I could reach him if I had any other concerns. He also personally called me again a day later to check up on me and see how I was doing. His bedside manner is phenomenal and his aftercare is just as exceptional. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Kolker and his staff. Not only do his credentials speak for themselves, he is extremely compassionate. I highly recommend him to anyone that is looking to have a top plastic surgeon perform their procedure, you will not be disappointed!

The ability to breastfeed after breast surgery is highly dependent on the type of surgery and the skill of your surgeon.

I had a breast lift and breast augmentation by Dr Kolker. I have always been ecstatic with my results, but even more so since I've been able to successfully exclusively breast fed my very large baby boy.

Given the involved nature of the surgery, the lactation consultants did not give me much hope. However, I was determined to try, because I knew how much emphasis Dr Kolker places on the technical aspects of the surgery and if at all possible, he tries to preserve the option for you. I am absolutely thrilled to let you know that I (and, of course, Dr Kolker) have proved the "experts" wrong by breastfeeding my son. If breastfeeding is a future consideration for you, then you need to speak with Dr Kolker. I am glad every single day that I did.

I spoke with several NYC plastic surgeons before making my decision to have a breast augmentation and breast lift, but none of them came close to the level of care and attention I received from Dr. Kolker.

I was always a little self-conscious in a bikini or backless top due to the sagginess of my breasts at such a young age. You have to put an immense amount of trust in a doctor when having a breast lift and breast augmentation, and I never had a second thought from the first time I walked into Dr. Kolker's office to the day I walked out of my breast surgery! I have much more confidence now and could not be happier with my decision.

My experience with Dr. Kolker has been nothing short of life changing.

Having my breast augmentation and breast lift procedure has boosted my self-esteem and given me a confidence that I had not felt for years.

Dr. Kolker reshaped my body but also encouraged me to improve my overall health by adopting a sensible diet. Dr. Kolker's emphasis is always on natural beauty. He has impeccable instincts and always knows how to make you look your best. He is an absolute artist.

Throughout the process, from the initial consultation to the after-care visits, the entire staff has always been patient, attentive, caring, knowledgeable, and friendly. The office and surgical suite is always clean and comfortable. I would not hesitate to use Dr. Kolker again in the future and would recommend him highly to my very best friends and family.

My breast lift results surpassed what I thought was ever possible!

My experience with Dr. Kolker and his staff made it obvious that I should never consider another plastic surgeon! I had several consultations with other cosmetic surgeons for a breast lift procedure before making the indisputable choice to go with Dr. Kolker.

He was very professional and thorough in his explanations and made it clear what was realistically possible. I felt that he and his staff valued my personal situation and recognized that the choice to have cosmetic surgery has an emotional element as well. His bedside manner is wonderful. The staff in his office is a reflection of the high standards Dr. Kolker has for his practice. They are warm, personable and very accommodating. My breast lift results surpassed what I thought was ever possible!

He made them so perfect with just a breast lift!

I had been contemplating getting a breast lift for years. I absolutely hated the way my breasts looked and was extremely self-conscious about my appearance for as long as I could remember. There finally came a point when I decided I had to go through with a breast lift procedure or else I would unhappy for the rest of my life.

Once my decision was made, I began researching the top plastic surgeons in New York City. When I came across Dr. Adam Kolker's website, I had a gut feeling that he would be my surgeon. I was extremely nervous and did not know what to expect, but from the moment I stepped into his office, my nerves disappeared. The office itself is very aesthetically pleasing and has a warm and inviting feel; you forget you are even at a doctor's office. After examining me and taking pictures, Dr. Kolker brought me into his office where we discussed the breast lift surgery and he answered all of my questions. He was extremely smart, honest, and compassionate. Most importantly, I felt so comfortable with him and confident that I was in good hands.

Dr. Kolker was my first and only consultation. Although I had intentions of meeting with other surgeons, from the moment I walked out of his office, I knew he would be my surgeon. The staff is not like any other doctors staff I have encountered. They are so friendly and warm that you can't feel anything but ease when you are in the office. Jillian, the patient coordinator, was incredible. I had been going back and forth on the idea of adding a breast augmentation along with a breast lift and she was happy to answer the numerous questions I had along the way. I spoke with her through email for several months and met with her again a month or so before my breast surgery, as I was still unsure about whether to add breast implants.

I decided to do a breast lift with breast augmentation up until about one week before the surgery. I had been having second thoughts about adding implants for some time and decided that, because I was so unsure, I would stick to doing just a breast lift. Although I thought my last minute change would become a problem, Jillian was incredibly understanding. She calmed my nerves and reassured me that I could always add breast implants down the road. She was so patient and helpful through all of my indecisiveness. I can't thank her enough! My breast surgery went extremely well and I was woken up to warm, friendly smiles from the nurses. Dr. Kolker came in to check on me and reassured me that the surgery went very well. My recovery was better than I could have ever imagined.

A few days after my surgery, I called after office hours with a concern about some minor bleeding. The receptionist paged Dr. Kolker and within minutes he called me. I was so impressed at his quick response and how attentive he was. After a couple of weeks post-op, my surgical tape was removed and I could not believe how incredible my breasts looked. I had read horror stories online about breast lift complications that left patients with atrocious scars. Dr. Kolker completely surpassed my expectations. I was amazed at how incredible my breasts looked just a couple weeks after my surgery.

They looked better two weeks post-op than photos I had seen online of people one year post-op! Words cannot describe how grateful I am to have found Dr. Kolker. His staff made my surgical process so smooth and easy and the results are absolutely incredible. I cannot thank him enough for what he has done. Dr. Kolker has changed my life. He has made my breasts so perfect that I can hardly remember what they looked like before my surgery. I should add that I am extremely happy that I did not add breast implants, he made them so perfect with just a breast lift! He has given me the confidence that I had never had and for the first time in my life, I am happy with my body. The warmth and compassion I felt from Dr. Kolker and his staff was unlike anything I had experienced from other doctors. Dr. Kolker is truly a brilliant plastic surgeon.

My breasts are the breasts I have always dreamed of having.

Dr. Kolker and his team impressed me from our very first encounter, and just continued to exceed my very high expectations in every way. I am a surgeon myself, so when I was finally ready for my abdominoplasty, breast lift and breast augmentation; I met with many plastic surgeons before choosing Dr. Kolker. He is a gentleman, an artist and an exceptional physician and surgeon.

I knew I had made the right choice as Dr. Kolker took the time during my consultation to listen to my concerns, thoroughly examine me, and genuinely care about what I was looking to accomplish. My surgery went beautifully and thanks to Dr. Kolker my body looks amazing! My breasts are the breasts I have always dreamed of having, and my abdomen is flat and hard and sculpted.

After my pregnancies, despite losing all of my weight, doing Pilates, running, and working with a trainer, nothing could reverse the effects three pregnancies had on my body. I had a large diastasis, an umbilical hernia, stretch marks and a lot of excess skin and tissue. I used to cry when I would stand in my closet and try on clothes. Now, I can wear whatever I want and I don't have to live in Spanx like I did for four years. I am actually able to wear a bikini something that I never thought would be an option for me again. After my breast and tummy surgery, I went back for some focal liposuction, and now I visit Dr. Kolker for Botox and injectables. I have referred friends and colleagues to Dr. Kolker as he is simply the best in his field for plastic surgery just look at his before and after photos. In addition to his exceptional care, his whole office staff cared for me before, during, and after my procedures, and I am extremely thankful for their dedication and commitment.

Dr. Kolker is kind and patient. He addressed all my questions, never making me feel rushed and always making sure that I was satisfied with his responses. His staff is all very friendly and knowledgeable; they would promptly return my calls and ensure that I had everything that I needed. My recovery from my tummy tuck and breast surgery was made easier by the attentiveness of Dr. Kolker and his staff. He has a meticulous aesthetic that is apparent in my results; I fully trusted his judgment about size and shape and highly recommend him.

I'm 36 and had not seen my breasts look this good since I was 19!!!

I had a breast lift with Dr. Kolker and am absolutely thrilled with my results!!

After having three children, breastfeeding and breast pumping for months, my breasts were a droopy mess. I flew to NYC to visit several doctors and the moment I met Dr. Kolker I knew he was the one - he transmitted so much confidence and calm. I could tell he is very meticulous. Plus, I felt really listened to.

I booked the surgery with him and some weeks before started getting nervous. I had no personal references since I do not live in the States and had literally found him on Google. We had a phone call where I was able to ask him more questions and was again reassured. He was very patient and kind and told me my results would be amazing no matter what specific procedure I would finally choose. The day of surgery the anesthesiologist and nurse were amazing, they both had an excellent bedside manner and made me feel super relaxed.

Dr. Kolker reviewed everything we were going to do and was not pushy at all about anything, just very focused and warm. I woke up and WOW-totally surpassed my expectations!! Recovery was a breeze, I didn't even feel the need to take the pain medication, just extra strength Tylenol. I'm 36 and had not seen my breasts look this good since I was 19!!! I couldn't help myself and five days later went shopping for new tiny bikinis that I could have never worn beforehand. Looking forward to trips to the beach! Highly recommend Dr. Kolker!

I never thought I would have plastic surgery, however, after breastfeeding my child, my breasts completely deflated.

I mustered up the courage to make an appointment with Dr. Kolker and the rest was magical.

Dr. Kolker is just an incredibly kind human being and beyond talented surgeon. I thank my lucky stars every day that I found this man to be my surgeon!  From our initial consultation through my surgery and post-op visits, he supported me and answered every question no matter how silly I thought they were.

I am so happy that I made the decision to have a breast lift with Dr. Kolker. It completely changed the way I wear clothes, present myself to others, and improved my confidence greatly! I have always loved “my girls” and they now look just like they used to, actually even better!  Bravo Dr. Kolker, your talent is only matched by your kindness.  I am beyond thrilled and always grateful!

Thank you Dr. Kolker for reintroducing me to life.

For many years I was embarrassed by my large breasts. It affected my self-esteem so deeply that I use to wear a sports bra over a regular bra trying to make my breast appear smaller. I wanted to have a breast reduction but my fears kept me from doing it. I am so grateful my gynecologist listened to my cry for help and referred me to Dr. Kolker. It was the best thing that could have ever happened to me.

I met Dr. Kolker during my consultation, and was I impressed! He was very kind, understanding and thorough in explaining the breast reduction procedure. Best of all not only did I feel good and reassured but so did my fiancee. When we got home after each visit, we would discuss what took place during the visit and both agreed that I was making the right choice with the right doctor. The surgery was great, pain was minimal, recovery was quick and I was out of work for only 2 weeks. All of my fears were put to rest, and the markings are hardly noticeable.

In closing I would like to say thank you Dr. Kolker for reintroducing me to life. I have not felt this good in years. Not only do I feel good but thanks to you I look great. You are not only an excellent doctor but an amazing individual. You are the best.

I can honestly say now that I love my breasts!

If someone asked me to name the number one thing I took away from going through with my breast reduction surgery, it would be confidence.

As a ballet dancer of 17 years I was used to having a small figure. When I matured late in life and developed a DDD chest size my life drastically changed. I was forced to leave the ballet world and slowly lost confidence in my image. I wasn't comfortable with my appearance anymore. I felt like I was defined by my chest size and not by my personality.

Dr. Kolker was the first doctor I spoke to about my surgery and from that initial interview I knew he was going to be my doctor. He made me feel like family from the moment I entered his office. His staff took me under their wing and helped me throughout the entire experience. Dr. Kolker's expertise is unmatchable. Each step he told me I'd experience throughout this process was accurate. I can honestly say now that I love my breasts! My entire perspective on life has changed. I am finally confident in my body, which has helped me gain confidence in other areas of my life.

Since my surgery I've grown in the workplace and socially. I owe my new outlook to Dr. Kolker. He'll always remain one of the most important people in my life.

I can never thank him enough for what he has done for me.

Dr. Kolker changed my life... I am 27 years old and for at least the past ten years I have been seriously considering having a breast reduction, but have always been hesitant about going through with it.

I would go through phases where I couldn't take it anymore and needed it done right away. I had even seen other plastic surgeons, but I would always leave with a feeling of something being wrong. With constant back pain and a limitation to physical activities I decided to try and see another doctor. Through a recommendation, I ended up at Dr. Kolker's office.

After my extensive first meeting with Dr. Kolker, I left knowing that the time was finally here for me to go through with this life-changing event, and that Dr. Kolker was just the person to perform my breast reduction surgery. My emotions leading up to the surgery were everywhere, from excitement, to curiosity to sheer panic, but Dr. Kolker and his staff were there for moral support and reassurance whenever I needed it.

The morning of my surgery was very scary for me, but I knew the whole time I was in good hands, and I couldn't wait for the final result. Walking into the operating room I broke down into tears (of course overreacting on my part). Dr. Kolker stood above me before we got started and wiped the tears off of my face; I was shocked to see a doctor have such compassion, and knew right then that everything would be fine. Leaving the hospital after my one night stay, Dr. Kolker gave me his cell phone number and encouraged me to call at any point, which I did take him up on once or twice. The care that I received from Dr. Kolker and his staff after the surgery was just as impressive - from the phone calls at home, check up visits, and emails to check in.

I am now at near full recovery and can't believe how different my life is. The pain is gone, vacations in a bathing suit are much more enjoyable, physical activities are easier, and my confidence is at an all-time high. The final result that Dr. Kolker left me with is astounding - he is an extremely talented surgeon. To top it all off I am about to purchase my wedding dress and I now have so many more options.

Knowing that I only have one or two more follow up appointments with Dr. Kolker leaves me bittersweet. I know it means I had the courage to finally finish this process, but it also means that I won't have any more visits with him, which I have now come to really enjoy. I can never thank him enough for what he has done for me, and the entire time with such love and care.

Allowing me to have no more back pain.

My experience with Dr. Kolker has been nothing but pleasant and satisfying. I had bilateral breast reduction in August of 2007. I must say that I felt great, had minimal pain afterward and was able to continue to go to school the following week.

Any time I had a question or concern, Dr. Kolker or someone on his staff was there willing to answer my questions immediately. Everyone in the office is so professional and so polite. I have never had surgery before, so this was a bit nerve racking at first, but after entering the office and discussing the procedure with Dr. Kolker, I was much at ease for my procedure. I now feel like a new person and am extremely happy with my results and my decision to have breast reduction surgery. I can't thank Dr. Kolker enough for his wonderful job and allowing me to feel better and have no more back pain. Thank you.

Dr. Kolker and his entire team have EXCEEDED my expectations on every level imaginable.

I first walked into Dr. Kolker' s office just over 1 year ago after being diagnosed with a BRCA2 mutation to discuss the possibility of having a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy.

As a 28 year old woman this was the biggest decision that I had ever been faced with and to say the least, I was overwhelmed with what lay ahead. When I first walked into Dr. Kolker' s office I was greeted by a friendly receptionist and was immediately calmed by the serenity and beauty of the office environment. I did not wait long before being taken back into a room and was quickly greeted by Dr. Kolker and his nurse.

Dr. Kolker immediately made me feel at ease by taking the time to answer each and every one of my questions. I did not feel rushed through the appointment AT ALL. Suffice it to say, I chose to move forward with the procedure and chose Dr. Kolker as my plastic surgeon. Over the past year both Dr. Kolker and his entire team have EXCEEDED my expectations on every level imaginable. Everyone in his office from the receptionist to the nurses to his coordinator, Jillian, has been professional, flexible and extremely supportive.

Dr. Kolker was available and willing to answer questions at any time of the day (or night)! I have never in my life met a doctor that is so reachable. In regards to my results, I am thrilled and he is truly an artist. Dr. Kolker has changed my life forever and words cannot describe how grateful I am to have found and chose him as my surgeon. I would recommend Dr. Kolker to anyone who is considering either breast reconstruction or any other surgery. In my eyes, he is an absolute saint!

I've grown to truly care for these people and they saved my life.

What can I say to fully show how grateful I am to Dr. Kolker and his amazing crew, besides a thank you, thank you, thank you! I was dealing with a very scary obstacle in my life and had to make some extreme decisions that would ultimately change my life as I was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Dr. Kolker and all the girls made this one of the most comfortable, heartfelt, and dare I even say easy experiences and trust me, nothing that I've been through has been easy. Everything from their warm welcomes, to chatting with me day in and day out about my worries and concerns (which I had many) and actually looking me in the eye when doing so. That means a lot as a patient. Now, on to Dr. Kolker's work and let's put it this way. He is a a miracle worker. I sometimes even say an artist because really, what he does is more than just plastic surgery, it's truly art.

He held my hand through every step of the process, made me feel that I was cared for (which MANY doctors do not even get close to doing in their lifetime), went through every process, explained each procedure, how it works, how I'd feel and so on. He made me realize that everything would be ok, and that I would be ok. You have no idea how much that means to someone battling health issues. I actually look forward to my visits; to see the girls friendly faces and smiles and to hear from Dr. Kolker that I'm heading in the right path and I've made it through the worst. I can keep going, but I'll stop right here. I've grown to truly care for these people and they saved my life and I'll never forget that.

I look absolutely fantastic and have not had any complications.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kolker's for over a year now. I was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer at 40 years old and was told I needed a mastectomy. I interviewed several breast surgeons and plastic surgeons and decided on the team of Dr. Port at Mt. Sinai as my breast surgeon and Dr. Kolker as my plastic surgeon I am so happy and grateful to them both.

From the very beginning (when I was depressed and an emotional mess), Dr. Kolker took the time to explain the different surgical options open to me and outcomes I could expect. I asked him if I'm not happy with something will you work with me to make me happy? I liked his response, I'm a perfectionist and my goal is to make you look good. I'm single and while being cancer-free was the main goal, so is looking good and regaining my confidence! I urge other women to ask plastic surgeons this same question before they sign on the dotted line. You would be surprised what some say or get a sense of their attitude.

Before I chose Dr. Kolker, I asked to talk to another breast cancer patient of his and he arranged it. Meeting this woman, hearing her incredible story, seeing how terrific she looked and how she raved about Dr. Kolker sealed the deal for me! I chose to go with silicone breast implants and while I have a couple of very minor tweaks before I am 100% finished I look absolutely fantastic and have not had any complications. I feel incredibly lucky. I will never forget the many kindnesses I have received from Dr. Kolker and his staff over the past year. During my mastectomy and first phase of reconstruction Dr. Kolker stopped by to see me on a Friday evening holiday in the hospital just to check on me and reassure me that I was doing just fine.

He was quick to respond to text messages and phone calls in the following days and months when I was worried or just anxious. His staff have become like family (Jillian, Jackie and Mary) and are also helpful about any questions I may have, working with my insurance and are quick to soothe the many anxieties that go with this process and disease. I highly recommend Dr. Kolker and his team and would be happy to talk to other breast cancer patients that are just starting this process, just ask Dr. Kolker for T.K.s information.

I couldn't be happier with how real my breasts look and feel.

I met with Dr. Kolker for the first time just days following the news that I had breast cancer. I knew from our initial consultation that I was about to work with someone who demonstrates a level of compassion you only hope to have as a part of your team of doctors.

However, what I learned of Dr. Kolker then was only a prelude to what I would learn throughout the time I was under his care. Dr. Kolker is by far the most compassionate doctor I have ever worked with. Not only has he spent extensive time with me making sure that I fully understand everything I need to know about breast reconstruction and what to expect, but he always took the time to comfort and reassure me in the most challenging days of my life. The results of my surgery lead me to believe he is a genius. His work is exceptional. I couldn't be happier with how real my breasts look and feel, and how proportionately they fit my body. From that very first consultation, Dr. Kolker relieved me of any fears I had regarding my surgery, the cosmetic results and the potential negative occurrences. I am so grateful for him and his wonderful, talented and professional staff.

His meticulous reconstructive "art" is just amazing.

All I have to say is that Dr. Kolker is one of the most amazing people that ever entered my life! When I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, I was referred to Dr. Kolker through my breast surgeon, for which I am forever grateful.

Dr. Kolker is the most kind and caring man I have ever met. He took away so much of my fear and made me excited about my reconstruction. His meticulous reconstructive "art" is just amazing. He is so in tune to detail. His staff is like family to me. You get the whole package here! From the moment you step foot into his beautiful, inviting office and up until your last procedure and follow up, you will be handled with the utmost care. Dr. Kolker is TOP NOTCH in the medical field and he "does it all" with a gentle touch. Dr. Kolker gave me my self esteem back. He took the lowest part of my life and turned it into an amazing new beautiful beginning. Because his work is so excellent, people cannot even believe that I have a reconstructed breast! Thank you Dr. Kolker for ALL you do, you make my heart smile!

He not only rebuilt my body but my self-esteem and confidence!

I was introduced to Dr. Kolker through my breast surgeon when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Was advised to have a mastectomy and I could have reconstructive surgery at the same time...When I met Dr. Kolker I was scared to death but Dr. Kolker was so comforting, kind and extremely informative as to the various options that were available to me.

He not only gave me the strength to take this journey but he also helped to comfort my husband. Dr. Kolker was available to me and my husband 24/7! He truly is an artist and he not only rebuilt my body but my self-esteem and confidence! He also was very accurate as to how I would feel during my healing process...I have a secret "love affair" with him. Now, I'm looking forward to additional surgery...but obviously for aesthetic reasons!

I would never consider using another doctor.

Several years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Once I had lived through the pain and misery of cancer surgery, chemo, and radiation - breast reconstruction surgery was the last thing I wanted to think about. But one day, my radiation doctor heartily recommended Dr. Adam Kolker to me as THE only doctor to fix the mess that was now my chest!!

Believe me, I was depressed and in no mood for any further surgery! After much back and forth about it, I did make an appointment to "grill" the doctor as I had great doubts about having any surgery - elective or otherwise, ever again... Happily, that all changed the moment I met with Dr Kolker... I really liked him right away... I was super impressed with his knowledge, his calm, and I was very taken with the way he addressed my particular (breast cancer) problem. He spent a lot of time explaining things to me regarding the surgery options both pro and con - I was still a wreck and a very nervous and demanding patient before and throughout the surgery process. But the doctor along with his terrific, supportive and empathetic staff helped turn my previous nightmare into an amazing doctor / patient experience. Now - I would never consider using another doctor.

He is simply the best.

I am a fellow physician in the middle of going through a prophylactic skin/nipple sparing mastectomy, now with expanders, and eventual implants. I absolutely adore Dr. Kolker and his staff.

The office is gorgeous and comforting. The staff is attentive and warm. Most of all, and of course the unbelievable part, Dr Kolker is a magnificent surgeon with a matching bedside manner. I will update this in a few months when I have my gorgeous new foobs (fake boobs), but in the meantime, Dr. Kolker and his staff have made me feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Thank you for making me feel taken care of!

I call Dr. Kolker an angel.

After needing a double mastectomy due to a genetic predisposition to breast cancer (and a stage 1 breast cancer) Kolker was recommended to me by my breast surgeon.

Obviously one of the most sad & stressful times of my life. He not only held my hand and consoled me before my operation, but every day I woke up in the hospital he was in my room to check on me. EVERY DAY. And after multiple surgeries - the end result is here and they're GORGEOUS. I am forever grateful.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer 5 months ago and I thank god every day for bringing me to Dr.Kolker.

He is not just an extremely skilled surgeon but a spectacular human being.

I consulted with 3 other plastic surgeons, but I knew from the moment I met Dr. Kolker that he was the surgeon for me. A week after my mastectomy Dr. Kolker had to perform an emergency surgery on me for a hematoma, and redo the construction on that side. He did so with such extraordinary grace and kindness, working on me till late into the night.

I have not done my final surgery to finish the reconstruction yet, but I am beyond thrilled with my results so far. I look better than ever! Every office visit I am greeted so warmly, making each visit an absolute pleasure, I will surely miss him when I’m done! His staff is very helpful, caring, responsive, and organized and his office is beautiful and calming. Dr. Kolker is my guardian angel, and I feel so blessed that he is my doctor. If you require breast reconstruction don’t waste time interviewing any other doctors, Dr. Kolker is the best of the best in every respect.

His staff is top notch!

Can't say enough about Dr. Kolker's keen ability, precision, professionalism and most importantly his ability to make me feel calm, taken care of, and safe! His office is impeccably clean and gorgeous.

I have been seeing him for routine checkups for years now, and every time I get to see him and his staff I am uplifted and treated like family. Everything he does is amazing! I had 3 surgeries with him and one liposuction that was used as a fat transfer in part of my reconstruction! Bonus!! Everything he does is done with love, perfection and care.

I could not have asked for a more caring and attentive staff.

Dr. Kolker and his staff has been unbelievably kind, attentive, professional and altogether wonderful before, during and after my double mastectomy.

I now love my breasts and feel beautiful every day. I no longer have nightmares about my body.

Ever since puberty, I had been ashamed and embarrassed about my breasts. They were tuberous, different sizes, and different shapes. I couldn’t fit into bras properly, I was embarrassed to wear swimsuits, and embarrassed to take my shirt off in front of my partner. I would also have nightmares about my body, and had low self-esteem because of my breasts.

In 2011 I finally realized there was something I could do about it and I found Dr. Kolker. Although Dr. Kolker informed me that it would be a fairly complicated surgery and there was no way to completely guarantee the results, I felt comfortable with him and his staff and decided to go through with it. In fact, I appreciated his honesty about how he couldn’t guarantee exactly what the outcome would be, and trusted him more because of this. I spent so much time talking with Dr. Kolker about the process, asking many questions—all of which were answered in depth, and had plenty of time to prepare mentally as well as physically for surgery. The Kolker team does not rush their patients into anything. You have plenty of time to think and prepare and process your own emotions. A few weeks before the surgery, I was given a list of supplements, ointments, and vitamins to take before and after the operation that would help with recovery. I felt excited and ready when the day finally came. And recovery went smoothly and quickly. I was even back at work (which included moving heavy furniture around) the next month.

>This decision completely changed my life. I now love my breasts and feel beautiful every day. I no longer have nightmares about my body. I fit into bras and swimsuits, and am comfortable with my body. I even love my body—a feeling I hadn’t dare let myself feel before. I have more confidence, and years post-op I am still grateful every day that I found Dr. Kolker and his wonderful team. Dr. Kolker is realistic, honest, and insanely talented. If you are looking for a brilliant doctor who listens to you and can deliver excellent results, go see Dr. Kolker.

I absolutely love my breasts and so does my boyfriend.

I could no longer condemn myself to a lifetime of insecurity and ugly padded bras. I began to research the best plastic surgeons, starting with New York Magazine's Best Doctors list.

After looking at hundreds of pre & post breast augmentation images on several surgeons' websites, Dr. Kolker had the best work by far. While I made several appointments with other surgeons for breast surgery, I immediately cancelled them after my first consultation with Dr. Kolker.

Being overweight most of my adult life, I couldn't help but envy those 'lucky' women with perfect bodies and perfect breasts. Having a fitness/nutrition guru for a boyfriend didn't help. With a lot of love and support, he encouraged me to simply start going to the gym with him and after months of weight training and proper nutrition habits, I improved my general health, finally had definition in my arms, legs and even abs...almost 'lucky'! I was in love and committed for the long term, no pun intended!

Unfortunately after months of all that hard work and sacrifice, my breasts took quite a beating and I discovered asymmetries in my breasts that I never noticed as it only became evident after I lost the weight. I had two absolutely different breasts, neither one pretty, on my new beautiful body. Desperately hoping no one would notice, I lived in ugly padded bras. I even slept in them when we had guests sleep over.

So there I was in Dr. Kolker's office, with an enlarged image of my asymmetrical breasts in various views on a big screen. It was surprisingly liberating. I was literally facing my fears and insecurities, while Dr. Kolker went over each asymmetry in great detail, how he'd approach it, possible risks and his recommendations. Although many would find this experience mortifying, I felt a huge relief. His professionalism and attentiveness is indescribable. The fact that he was able to make me feel like we were simply discussing a medical procedure and nothing more unusual than that was unbelievable.

And the staff completely exceeded my expectations! They were friendly, attentive and so helpful. I cannot count how many emails I sent them and with each email they were prompt to respond with valuable and detailed information and continue to encourage me to contact them with any other questions or concern.

It's been almost half of a year since my surgery and I absolutely love my breasts and so does my boyfriend. I get compliments on them all the time, many from women. What Dr. Kolker did with my breasts is a miracle. I continue to be athletic and to love my body, it is complete now and I'm officially 'lucky' and it's thanks to Dr. Kolker and his staff. You will not regret it!

Dr. Kolker truly pays attention to your individual case, and I'm so happy with my results.

Dr. Kolker changed my life. No, that's not an exaggeration. I struggled with my breast asymmetry since I was 12 years old.

As I grew older, I learned it was more common than I had once thought, but knowing that didn't alleviate the daily battle with my self-esteem every time I got dressed or adjusted the padding I used to correct the one-cup size difference. At 25, I decided to take action, and that's when I first met Dr. Kolker. I was drawn to his practice because it was one of the only I came across that specifically addressed breast asymmetry, and I immediately felt at ease and comfortable in his office. A year later when I was ready to schedule my surgery, he reviewed my options with me again because they had changed. My choice to have this surgery was the best decision I've ever made. I'm grateful for Dr. Kolker, Jillian and Jacki who answered my many, many questions throughout the entire process, from choosing the best option when I wasn't quite sure what I wanted until my recovery. Dr. Kolker truly pays attention to your individual case, and I'm so happy with my results. While my surgery has already made an incredible impact on my life, I look forward to this coming summer when for the first time in a long time, I will enjoy a day at the beach without a worry in the world. I wouldn't have that confidence without Dr. Kolker. Thank you for changing my life.

I could not believe my eyes.

How can I begin? From the age of 13 I knew something was not right so I knew that one blessed day I would be able to get my chest corrected. Upon my graduation from college I thought it a great time to begin my search for a New York breast surgeon. Dr. Adam Kolker was the first doctor I consulted with and I was blown away by his warm character, medical merits, stunning beautiful office & staff.

I thought this is a great place with amazing results but I could not left myself choose the only doctor I had ever seen. So I continued to have consultations with various surgeons none with whom I instantly liked or felt comfortable. I then gave Dr. Kolker another call & set up a second meeting.

Going in I knew that Dr. Kolker & his staff were the angels I wanted to put my trust in. I felt so comfortable and safe in his office, with his staff, and his plan of action for my breast asymmetry. The day of my surgery I was of course very anxious , excited & scared naturally because this would be the first time in my life I would be going under the knife.

When I awoke I felt fine just a little sore, they turned on my favorite soap opera and I was happy as can be. In the days after surgery I was great, feeling fine no bleeding or pain. I took my medicine as prescribed and waiting to get the bandages removed.

Then the fateful day came; my post-op consultation. All I can say is that they looked phenomenal, I could not believe my eyes. Dr. Kolker had done something ALL other surgeons had told me was not possible. He made the impossible, possible I could not believe it took a possibility and turned it into my reality! They looked amazing no visible stitching, scars or lollipop incision others had told me were unavoidable. I will forever be thankful to him for correcting my asymmetrical breasts and making me so happy. Dr. Kolker & staff are my angels; they made me complete, finally. What Dr. Kolker's office does is truly an art form and I will forever be thankful to God for leading me to him and to Dr. Kolker himself for doing the best he could do for me and changing my life for the better each and every day. I love you ALL.

Dr. Kolker and his team are absolutely incredible!

I underwent a breast augmentation due primarily to moderate breast asymmetry after years of breastfeeding. Dr. Kolker not only fixed my issues, but he also restored my confidence.

Throughout the process, I always felt like I had the very best of care. Dr. Kolker and his team are all very kind, which was a huge plus because, let's be honest here, it can be pretty awkward at first. I was always very impressed with the competence and kindness of Dr. Kolker and his entire team. They are all very warm and welcoming, from the second you walk in the door.

The procedure itself was amazing as well! I went from about a 34A to a 34D. This was the "fullest end of natural" for my body type. I appreciate how I was able to tell him my goals (size, shape, etc.) and he was able to deliver that, while also maintaining a very natural and aesthetically pleasing look. I had a lift and he corrected my asymmetry as well. My husband and I are in love with the results!

Honestly, he achieved what I had formerly believed was impossible. I'm not normally one to write many reviews, but Dr. Kolker and his team definitely deserve it. If you are unsure about who to use for a procedure, I can assure you that your search is over! Just do it- you won't regret it!

Hands down, best surgeon, facility and staff in NYC.

I felt so comfortable with Dr. Kolker and his staff. I suffered from severe breast asymmetry and it was finally time to correct it.

My first consultation with another doctor was a disaster. He barely spoke to me and then just sent me off for prices. Dr. Kolker and his team were completely different. They spoke with me at length about all my questions and concerns. He explained things clearly to me and helped me to find the best solution for my breast asymmetry. The office manager was a godsend. She was so friendly and kind. She was so open and was just as knowledgeable as Dr. Kolker. Day of, I was stress free because I knew I was in great hands. My nurse, Stephanie was so kind and made me feel so comfortable. They called me next day to see how I was feeling. My follow up appointment was in 2 days to check my progress and then a week post-surgery. I came back again two weeks post-surgery. That's how I know they are thorough. Hands down, best surgeon, facility and staff in NYC.

I always had slight breast asymmetry but it never bothered me until after I stopped breastfeeding my children and I started to see noticeable shape and size disparity.

I began to feel increasingly self-conscience about wearing certain clothes, dresses, or bathing suits.  A friend of mine suggested I go for a consultation with Dr. Kolker as she had a previous surgery with him and raved and raved about him.

When I met with Dr. Kolker, I knew immediately I was going to go through with this procedure and give this gift to myself.  To put it simply, Dr. Kolker is just extraordinary!  He has an acute aesthetic eye and knows to the millimeter what size and shape will look best on your body. He never projected his thoughts, but instead really listened to what I wanted, and then we talked through together how we would achieve my goals.

And the results, OMG, I look like I’m 20 again!  Seriously, I have the most gorgeous breasts you can imagine!  I think my husband now loves Dr. Kolker more than I do!  Thank you, Dr. Kolker, and your amazingly talented staff for always being so professional, available, supportive, and welcoming to me.  I am forever grateful to all of you and can’t wait to return to the office soon!

The surgery itself was flawless.

Dr. Kolker performed a bilateral gynecomastia procedure on me and I could not be happier with my results. My chest now looks completely natural and organic, and the scarring is so minimal that it is impossible to see.

Dr. Kolker spent an enormous amount of time with me, talking through each step of the process, answering all my questions and ensuring that I would be 100% comfortable and satisfied with the results. The surgery itself was flawless, the anesthesiologist was excellent and the recovery was a lot faster than I expected. I hold Dr. Kolker in the highest regard and recommend him above all other doctors in NYC for gynecomastia surgery.

My results are unbelievable.

Dr. Kolker performed a gynecomastia procedure on me last year and I have to say that he made it his priority to make me feel welcome at his office.

He thoroughly explained the different options that were available to me. The results are fantastic! I look better than the extreme makeovers people see on reality TV. I would recommend Dr. Kolker to anyone who is serious about plastic surgery, whether it is something as simple as Botox, or as complicated facial reconstruction. His staff is just the same. They smiled at me every time I entered the office and helped me get my appointments and other arrangements without any hassle. My results are unbelievable.

He cared for me with a level of warmth and compassion that exceeded all of my expectations.

I would like to begin by saying I never thought I would have plastic surgery. But after coming to the realization that I had tuberous breasts (which affirmed why I felt so self-conscious for so many years), and trying to accept an abdomen that sagged overwhelmingly from delivering 3 oversized babies, I was somewhat propelled on this journey.

A dear friend who underwent breast augmentation surgery several years ago with Dr. Kolker recommended him to me. Actually, that's an understatement. She RAVED about him. And she had thoroughly researched plastic surgeons all over New York City, going to multiple consultations and being disappointed by cold, sterile offices and indifferent doctors. Her endorsement of Dr. Kolker was so emphatic and glowing that I didn't feel the need to look any further. Indeed, upon meeting Dr. Kolker for the first time, I felt all at once reassured, calm, and excited! Most importantly, I was able to arrive at a sense of peace about my decision to move forward.

I had expressed my fear about appearing "vain" to Dr. Kolker. He took my feelings very seriously, and responded with kindness and candor. The fact that I wanted to have plastic surgery did not make me frivolous or superficial. The end result was going to give me an appreciation for my physical body that I never had, while boosting my self-confidence in the process. I would be an improved version of myself who could face the world (and my husband!) with increased enthusiasm and courage. Dr. Kolker truly listens to your wishes and goals. He is gentle in his approach, honest in his assessment, and unequivocally clear in his vision. He has an impeccable aesthetic eye, undoubtedly attributed to both his artistic background and very own sense of what is beautiful.

It's impossible not to have 100% faith in his abilities. The office staff is professional and personable, a complete reflection upon Dr. Kolker himself. Everyone, including Jillian, Jacki, Vanessa, Mary, and now Rachel, is extremely responsive and compassionate. They work together as a team to impact your overall experience in a strictly positive way, and make you feel totally cared for and appreciated. As far as the actual surgery is concerned, I was really afraid. More specifically, I was petrified about the tummy tuck recovery and not being able to take care of my young children. Turns out my fears were shockingly unfounded. I am so happy and pleasantly surprised to report that my recovery has been an absolute breeze! I had almost NO pain afterward, and I still can't believe it. Of course, there was discomfort and decreased mobility for a short time.

But I required very little pain medication and I was up and about with the kids pretty much immediately. And my dramatic results were evident right away. A key part of that recovery was being able to stay overnight in the surgical suite with the private nurses, who were amazingly attentive and wonderful. They monitored me the whole time, had me up and walking, and made sure I was comfortable. Again, that speaks to the overall positive experience that Dr. Kolker and his staff offer. Dr. Kolker is a gentleman and surgeon of the highest integrity and talent. Not only did he deliver beautiful, natural results, but he cared for me with a level of warmth and compassion that exceeded all of my expectations. I am unbelievably content with my decision, and like my friend, can't rave enough about him, either!

After being unhappy with the shape of my tuberous breasts for my entire life, I finally decided to have them fixed.

Dr. Kolker was the first and ONLY doctor I ended up consulting with as I found no need to look further - I had already found the best.

His impressive credentials speak for themselves but it was the palpable feeling of warmth and kindness from Dr. Kolker that put me most at ease with my breast augmentation decision. Dr. Kolker went above and beyond from my initial visit to make sure that I was 100% comfortable and that all my questions were answered. I never felt rushed or dismissed in any way. Dr. Kolker and everyone on his staff exude compassion and patience and this was extremely important to me in choosing my plastic surgeon.

Because I knew I was in the most capable of hands with Dr. Kolker, I was never concerned about not achieving the results I had hoped for or even about the pain following my procedure. On the day of my breast surgery, my main and only concern was the anesthesia. Not surprisingly, the anesthesiologist turned out to be just as amazing as Dr. Kolker and the rest of his staff. He was incredibly warm and friendly and took the time to talk to me before my surgery about exactly what he would be doing and to address any concerns that I had.

By the time they brought me into the OR, any fears that I had were gone - I was completely at ease. The entire experience was extremely positive and could not have gone more smoothly. I never had any bad side effects from the anesthesia and no nausea, no vomiting and very little pain following surgery. In fact, by day 3 I was off the pain meds completely. I am now 3 weeks post-op and this whole experience has been life changing. The results are leaps and bounds above anything I could have ever imagined and I could not be more thrilled. Dr. Kolker exceeded my expectations in every way and I could not be more thankful to him. I cannot say enough good about this man. He is a true artist, a perfectionist and a GENIUS. He has changed my life!

I had a tuberous breast correction.

I don’t even know where to start on my glowing review for Dr. Kolker and his whole staff.

From my first appointment to every check in, Dr. Kolker and his staff did everything possible to make me feel comfortable and confident. This issue is really sensitive and personal, and they did the best to walk me through it and make me feel confident. On surgery day, I expected to feel anxious, but everyone (Dr. Kolker, the nurse, and the amazing anesthesiologist) did everything to make me feel so confident and comfortable. I felt so calm and excited for my procedure.

The outcome so far is unreal. I’m about 8 weeks out and feel amazing. My physical body is very comfortable, and I am obsessed with the result. My mom and I were brought to tears because I had struggled with this issue for so long, and I felt comfortable in my skin for the first time. It Is a deeply personal choice but literally could not recommend it more. The surgery is very expensive but beyond worth it if you have this issue. Dr. Kolker trains others for this surgery, so you can be so confident in his ability to do the job perfectly. Also, cannot speak more highly of him and his staff. They made me feel so at home.

REAL SELF REVIEW

Tuberous breasts have been the bane of my existence for as long as I can remember.

In the Uber home, I cried-- because something that had caused so much suffering for 30 years was resolved in an operation that took less than three hours. I am now at peace with my decision, extremely grateful to Dr. Kolker and in love with the transformation.

Although I had no name for my "condition" before the 21st century, I'd never seen breasts that resembled mine (narrow, pointy, asymmetrical- no lower pole fullness) in movies, magazines, or in dressing rooms. I've been thinking about surgery since the 1990s, but had not given it serious consideration until four years ago, when I realized (1) I could never not be ashamed of my body, despite Pilates, feminism, positive affirmations--- while I rejected rigid media standards for beauty, indifferent to some body flaws (belly pooch, stretch marks), there would always be a feeling of mortification whenever I removed my bra- I wore padded push-ups to greet delivery boys at the door! and;

(2) Having tuberous breasts crippled my sexual self-confidence and led to poor relationship choices with substandard men; they subconsciously made me feel less of a woman, undeserving of a good relationship, and may even have affected how I walked, talked, and carried myself in other contexts (I was told that I seemed too guarded and "reserved").

I found Dr. Kolker through an article about tuberous breasts in Cosmopolitan and have been in touch with him and Jillian, his patient coordinator since 2014. Dr. Kolker is a tuberous breast specialist with the most natural results in breast augmentation in NYC, a surgeon-artist who earns a living making people happy with their bodies. I found him brilliant and affable and looked no further for a surgeon, as I knew that only he would be able to give me the results that I wanted.

Since my mammogram came back abnormal, with calcifications found in my right breast, my surgery was derailed: I had to have a biopsy and several follow-up mammograms scheduled at six-month intervals before Dr. Kolker would think about moving forward. Everything turned out fine (no breast cancer), and we scheduled a date in late March, two days before Easter: suffering, resurrection, rebirth. Timing couldn't be more symbolic.

And yet--being the ridiculously complicated woman I am-- I wasn't elated that it was finally happening. I wrestled with doubts, felt paralyzed with indecision, consulted famous psychics and tormented friends. The large cost was a big factor (I'm going solo without child support; a college teacher, not a CEO). And then, the possible health complications.... I knew this would not be a one-time operation; at some point they would have to be removed and replaced. Jillian was extremely patient with me, answered all my questions promptly, and confided in me about her own plastic surgery journey; it was easy to connect with her.

Although I went through the motions, scheduling my pre-op bloodwork, taking my vitamins, quitting nicotine, etc. I didn't feel like I'd made my decision until I paid my balance, parting with a lot of money I'd worked very hard at a toxic job to save. I knew I'd regret not doing it much more than I'd ever regret doing it.

I am now three days' post-op and cannot be more pleased with my breast surgery results: they are round and already look natural and beautiful. To say that Dr. Kolker is a talented surgeon is an understatement. I had a very pleasant experience, minimal pain (just discomfort- as if someone were sitting on my chest- that increased when I raised myself to a sitting position).

In the Uber home, I cried-- because something that had caused so much suffering for 30 years was resolved in an operation that took less than three hours. I am now at peace with my decision, extremely grateful to Dr. Kolker and in love with the transformation.

I believe Dr. Kolker is a gifted plastic surgeon.

After years of being extremely self-conscious about having inverted nipples, I decided to begin research on how I could go about correcting this condition.

At first I was unsure of what my condition was and began reading online that I along with 2-10% of women have one or two inverted nipples. I was relieved to know that I was not the only one that had this problem. During my research I came across Dr. Kolker's website and decided to make an appointment for a consultation.

When I met with Dr. Kolker he was extremely professional, friendly, and gave me hopeful options. He not only explained the procedure to correct inverted nipples very clearly, but he also explained my options and possible outcomes. I was very excited, and for the first time I felt a sense of hope that I could finally overcome my self conscious body complex that I had battled for years.

I felt at ease with Dr. Kolker because his office and staff was beautifully maintained, welcoming, professional and caring. Thus, I allowed Dr. Kolker to perform the procedure; now I am more confident, and I no longer agonize about this problem.

I want to thank Dr. Kolker for his kindness, as well as his ample ability to correct my inverted nipples. I believe Dr. Kolker is a gifted plastic surgeon.

I think Dr. Kolker could run bedside manner training sessions for other doctors!

Dr. Kolker and his staff provided a comfortable and supportive place for my inverted nipple surgery. They are warm people who are very open to questions and concerns. After meeting Dr. Kolker, I knew this was the place and the surgeon for me.

Dr. Kolker inspires trust and confidence in his clients. I knew that I was dealing was someone who was more than proficient, who took his practice and his clients very seriously. I was surprised at how well I was treated and am very happy with the results of my correction of inverted nipple surgery. I think Dr. Kolker could run bedside manner training sessions for other doctors!

With him I can be sure I'm in good hands.

Dr. Kolker's office is always a lovely place come to. The interior itself is warm and inviting, luxurious and comfortable.

It is a calming and soothing atmosphere so unlike doctor's offices I've experienced in the past; its almost as if you're sitting in your friend's living room waiting to have tea. Everyone in the office is wonderfully friendly and inviting. The same can be said of Dr. Kolker who is amiable and sociable, yet pleasantly professional. He emanates a kind of calmness that is fabulously reassuring, especially if one is dealing with certain insecurities a patient may face. It is obvious that Dr. Kolker is extremely knowledgeable, and with him I can be sure I'm in good hands.
