Plastic Surgery Testimonials
Read what patients are saying.
Here are some testimonials of patients who’ve had procedures with Dr. Kulick.
“I love to see how cosmetic procedures improve my patients’ self-confidence.”
Michael is a truly gifted surgeon. My wife's procedure was perfect, and the results after 10 years are still outstanding. He also helped with the baggage under my eyes and I am most pleased. No flash, just great results. High Confidence in Dr. Kulick.
Dr. Kulick is a very thorough and knowledgeable doctor! He makes you feel comfortable to ask him about anything and he will answer honestly. He doesn’t make you feel pressure to do anything you do not want to do. He is extremely nice and I am happy to recommend him to anyone I know!
Perfect for every Asian: Attention Asians! This plastic surgeon - he is one of the rare plastic surgeons within the US who knows how to make Asians look even more perfect - is very highly recommended by me, and I'm a model, besides; the plastic surgeon is professional which makes it a truly wholesomely great experience, and he knows what to do and what to not do, next to being ultra honest with you as he is not the type of the average bad person who would agree with whatever you want just for the sake of making money out of the entire thing. Dear Asians, it's very hard to find a plastic surgeon who makes Asian looks totally gorgeous and THAT plastic surgeon is way much better than most of plastic surgeons in the Asia, and I know what I'm talking about - so please treat him like an absolutely lovely gem that you shall never ever want to give away.
I was referred to Dr. Kulick last year by my primary care doctor after I complained of pain in my thumb on my right hand. As a specialist in hand surgery, Dr. Kulick quickly diagnosed the problem, explained in detail what was occurring, and outlined the surgery procedure and recovery time. Answering all my questions, he described in terms that I easily understood. Surgery on my right hand was successful—the pain is gone—and scars are vanishing. Indeed, I felt so secure in Dr. Kulick’s ability to diagnose and correct my medical issues that he performed a second surgery on my left hand which had some of the same problems as my right hand. Again surgery and recovery went smoothly, resolving my medical issues. I appreciate the punctual appointments, the care provided by his office, his experience, his extensive knowledge, and his precise technique. I recommend Dr. Kulick and continue to be his patient.
2005 A strange thing happened in the laboratory in the midst of a delicate assay with deadly pathogenic viruses. A thumb spontaneously jerked and locked, a condition called trigger thumb. Not ideal, unsteady hands could lead to accidental contamination of the area. Laboratory career was on the line. My encounter with the referred specialist was extremely negative:“no need to come to the office just go back to reception and have them schedule surgery”. That afternoon I went online searching for a list of Hand Surgeon Specialist in the area. After reading through each Doctor’s background info I decided on Dr. Michael Kulick, called for an appointment and informed my Primary Care Physician to send the referral papers. My future was at stake as I opened the door. The Receptionist was pleasant. Dr Kulick has such a calming manner as he gathers your medical history, exams your hand and then describes in detail your options. His explanation of the surgical procedure is very thorough. This was 2005. I was back in the laboratory within a short time after successful surgery. 2007 Dr. Kulick and I met again. This time it was for my wrist, Tenosynovectomy surgery repaired the damage and I was soon back in the lab. The surgical skill of Dr. Kulick allowed me to continue working until 2015 when I chose to retire. 2017 Dr. Kulick and I met again. This time more extensive surgery was needed. I was so shaken by the description that I visited the office two days later to reconfirm what he had said, my mind had frozen the first day when he mentioned cadaver tissue. Once again he explained the procedure in his calm way, explaining not only the surgery but what to expect as I recovered, what my role would be in having the best outcome. Outcome was great. It was fun living as a left-handed person for awhile as well as becoming part of the public transit community. Things are back to normal, two working hands, rebuilt wrist and the garden is blooming. Life is good thanks to the Surgical Skills of Dr. Michael Kulick.
Let’s just say that when a bus and a bicyclist cross paths, the bicyclist is fortunate to only have two of his fingers broken. The bicyclist is also fortunate to have received treatment from Dr. Michael Kulick because, 5 months later I am typing this using my previously injured hand. Dr. Kulick is an efficient and practiced doctor, he doesn’t sugar coat anything which I appreciated as it gave me realistic expectations and outlook through the process. The visual aids used to describe my condition throughout the process were very helpful as well. The two surgeries I received were successful and now I can tell people that I have a “hand guy.” In fact, I already referred a friend who broke some bones in their right hand to Dr. Kulick. Plus, he is conveniently located by Union Square, just be careful not to hang too many shopping bags on the injured hand.
I’ve been with Dr. Michael Kulick for 2 years....to correct Duptrytren’s Contracture in both of my hands. On my first visit, he fully explained the “how, whys, and when” questions I had about my hands. Following several surgeries of both palms and tendon replacements of fingers, I’m happy to say I have regained normal usage, mobility, and strength of both my hands! Doctor is professional, a great communicator, and a excellent surgeon! THANK YOU, Dr. Kulick!!!!!
It was a pleasure being under the care of Dr. Kulick. He is a no nonsense kind of guy who does proper and efficient work. I came to see him with a strong referral from an SF urgent care to treat my broken right thumb. He was very friendly and direct on what I needed to do with mobility and strengthening exercises after I had my hand in a cast for a few weeks. Everything healed as expected and he even helped me get reimbursed from my insurance company which initially incorrectly charged me for his services. If I had to go back and see him (which I hope I never have to 😀) he would be the person I would want to treat me. Best wishes!
I went in to see Dr. Kulick for a finger fractured, which he assessed very efficiently and quickly! He made the process very straight forward for me. I mean, who wants to stay at any doctors longer than they have to? Am I right? In addition, he addressed a completely separate issue I had and for that, I am forever thankful. I am finished with all my visits, but Dr. Kulick assured me that he is always available if any further issues arise. I will definitely choose to go to him if I ever have any other problems!
Professional and informative. Exactly what I needed before my surgery.
Dr. Kulick was extremely patient with me. It took a long process to know exactly what i wanted. We went through lots of sessions. He asked me to find different pictures of peoples faces that i like and don't like. My surgery had to be postponed due to MRSA infection on my chin. My family doc thought it was a spider bite. After i have mentioned to Dr. Kulick, he insisted on seeing me first. He literally saved my life. He switched me to a different type of antibiotic. After the surgery i was extremely nervous during my recovery. Dr. Kulick always responded to my after hour phone calls right away. He would tell me detail instructions and explanations each time to calm me down. I've done a full facelift, upper lip augmentation and chin augmentation. The result is great. I would highly recommend Dr. Kulick! =)
I had surgery on my index finger and Dr Kulick has been thorough, direct, and helpful throughout the experience. He keeps to appointment times and I couldn’t ask for a better hand surgeon and overall experience. Thank you!
Had a broken finger injury four months ago. Dr. Kulick explained my options and was very helpful. Professional and positive experience throughout. My finger is now 100% healed and I’m ver happy.
I went to Dr. Kulick two years ago with half of my scaphoid dead. He performed bone graft surgery and I've recovered most of the function of my wrist--I can play my guitar! More importantly, as a computer professional, I can type on a keyboard without issue. Dr. Kulick was clear about my options and what I could reasonably expect. I always felt like I got the whole story from him. And what he said came to pass. The situation about which I came to him was not a good one, but if I could now tell my then-self one thing, it would be: it's going to be much better than you think.

After many disappointing consultations with other surgeons, I was intrigued by your methods and techniques during my first visit. After the surgery, I look years younger and my husband said, “My young wife came back, your doctor is good.” I also took the Intense Light Process to restore my healthy and young-looking face complexion. It worked; my brown spots and sun damage were gone.

The results are beautiful. Friends of mine that are Plastic Surgeons have admired Dr. Kulick’s work. He is an artist and a real pleasure to do business with.

As a young woman growing into one’s body and not feeling comfortable with myself was the worst feeling I ever felt. (One year after a breast augmentation) I feel 100% confident, am more social and am happier than I have ever been. I am a nursing student and love and embrace life to its fullest.

Beyond the terrific job that Dr. Kulick did in making me look younger then my real years, I found Dr. Kulick to be a compassionate and caring physician whose efforts extends way beyond the initial operation. He is a very people oriented doctor who makes you feel calm and assured he is doing the best possible job for you. I believe Dr. Kulick is one of the best plastic surgeons in the state if not the country and it has been my pleasure being one of his patients for the last year.

Ever since I was a little girl, I wondered what was wrong with me. I had these bags & dark circles under my eyes (Blepharoplasty performed) from this experience, I emerged a new me – like a butterfly! I am pleased with the results and no longer need cosmetics to mask my imperfections or even hide behind my glasses.

I had sever acne from the time I was 12 years old until the age of 32. One year latter, I am very happy every time I look into the mirror. To have the burden of self-consciousness lifted off my shoulders was a great blessing and I am very grateful to Dr. Kulick.

As I have said to all of my family and friends, Dr. Kulick is in a class by himself. My daughter and her husband, knowing that I have had many (cosmetic operations), asked me which one I would recommend to them. I said Dr. Kulick without a moment of hesitation. It turned out that Dr. Kulick did by far the best job of any of them.

For myself, liposuction surgery has met and exceeded my expectations in correcting fat deposit inconsistencies that I thought would not respond to liposuction. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Kulick’s skill and talent and appreciate his candor in answering my questions, especially since I can be demanding and a perfectionist who needs to “be in control”.

I just wanted to say thank you for helping me achieve one of my goals. The surgery and results have been a success and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you for your professionalism, thoroughness and kindness throughout this process.

The surgery definitely met my expectations. I have never been opposed to plastic surgery – in moderation, but it was very important to have a natural result. No one looks at me and says (or thinks), “You had work done.” The result is very natural. But I can see in the mirror that I look less tired, and that gives me the confidence that I look my best. I have more of a “platform,” no creepy skin and my peripheral vision has returned.

He (Dr. Kulick) takes the time to answer your questions, assuage your fears and offers his invaluable advice on which procedures will improve your appearance. After surgery with Dr. Kulick, you will love looking in a mirror again (or, in my case, I now enjoy looking in a mirror for the first time in my life!). The combination of blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty and laser resurfacing have given me a softer, younger and more blissful appearance.
