I had a lower neck lift and it turned out perfectly. There was never any pain, minimal swelling, no nausea, and was completely discharged after three weeks.I would recommend Dr. Stallman for any procedure.

Kudos to both him and his staff for such good care. — M.R., Grover Beach as seen on YELP

I have been Dr. Stallman's patient for 15 years and I'm finally writing a long overdue testimonial. I drive from out of the area to see him whenever I feel my age is starting to show.

I always look natural and never appear overdone. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in facial surgery, Botox or fillers. — S.A., Fresno as seen on YELP

Dr. Stallman is Central Coast's expert Oculoplastic Surgeon. He fully examines your condition, takes the time to explain his professional solution, and performs surgical procedures with the most minimal amount of incision. I went to LA to get a second opinion and they agreed with Dr. Stallman's recommendations. I highly recommend him to all my friends. — C.D., San Luis Obispo as seen on YELP


Just finished recovery from having eye lid surgery and everything went fantastically well. The doctor was conservative in his approach and the results are satisfying and natural looking. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. — C.M., San Luis Obispo as seen on YELP


Dr. Stallman repaired damage to my eye lid that was struck by a bunji cord. The lid now looks and functions perfectly. Doctor thank you for making my life normal again. — C.S., Paso Robles as seen YELP


I am in my 60's and was looking so old and tired even when I felt great. Dr. Stallman performed both upper and lower blepharoplasty. He spent time explaining the procedure thoroughly and answered all my questions. The results were better than I expected!!! Thank you Dr. Stallman and your wonderful, caring staff! — G.G., Santa Maria as seen on Yelp


Nearly 11 months ago I had upper and lower eyelid surgery, lower facelift, neck lift and chemical peel by Dr. Stallman. He is professional, honest, and thorough. In the week after surgery I never had any pain, had very little bruising, and no complications. Since then my recovery has gone smoothly. I still look my age. I look like myself. I just look better and feel better. I always hated my baggy eyelids, but the rest of what I had done was really out of character for me. Nevertheless, I'm glad I had the surgery. I trusted Dr. Stallman from the first consultation and I still think he's just the best. We're lucky to have such a fine surgeon in our area. Additionally, his staff is terrific. — S.K., Atascadero as seen on YELP

I waited 5 years before finally deciding to have an upper and lower eyelid surgery. I received great recommendations from friends and an esthetician and I am very happy with the results. His staff was great throughout the process. I would highly recommend Dr. Stallman. — As seen on Real Self

Dr. Stallman was so helpful with my needs and I'm so happy with the results. — As seen on Real Self


I've had upper and lower eyelid surgery, a lower facelift and neck life, and chemical peel (all at the same time). Dr. Stallman spent a lot of time with me discussing options and making sure that I had realistic expectations for the outcome. My surgery and recovery went very smoothly. I have total confidence in Dr. Stallman and his staff. I wouldn't have had all this cosmetic surgery from anyone else. He was highly recommended to me, and I highly recommend him to others. — As seen on Rate MDs

I was losing peripheral vision and was referred to Dr Stallman. My vision is much better, my eyes are perfectly balanced and I am incredibly pleased with his work! Great staff! Great surgery center! And a very very good Doctor! — As seen on Rate MDs


Dr. Stallman and his staff were prompt and professional. All of my questions were answered succinctly and proficiently. — As seen on Rate MDs


When I got tired of looking tired, I spent months consulting with cosmetic surgeons on the Central Coast. All seemed knowledgeable and willing to help me in their own way but Dr. Stallman's approach is what convinced me to become his patient and every time I look in the mirror, I know that I made the right choice. Dr. Stallman did not insist that I absolutely had to have a "package" of procedures as other surgeons did. Nor did anyone of his staff pressure me with a "limited time price". In fact, Dr. Stallman was the only surgeon who suggested that since my biggest problem were the bags under my eyes, and then perhaps I should consider a lower lid Bleph. I did more than consider it. I did it and I love it. — As seen on Rate MDs


I chose Dr. Paul Stallman to perform an Upper Blepharoplasty and Brow Lift. My many questions were answered to my satisfaction. I was invariably treated with patience, respect, and dignity. My experience at the "Coastal Surgical Institute" could not have been better in this state of the art, peaceful, clean facility. An Oculoplastic Surgeon knows the eye, and has all the equipment to perform tests pre- & post- to be sure no aspect of the eye or vision is being compromised. Dr. Stallman is exceedingly competent, caring, and compassionate, while at the same time not being in the least bit "full of himself". The results of my procedures far exceeded my expectations. I am simply thrilled with the results. I don't hesitate to give Dr. Stallman my full recommendation; if you are on or near the Central Coast of California and are considering any cosmetic procedures on or around your eyes, run, don't walk, to Dr. Stallman's office. The only thing you will regret is having waited so long! — As seen on Rate MDs


Dr Stallman did an outstanding job on my left eye lid that was very damaged by a bungee cord strike. You can no longer tell that I had any damage to my eye. Thank you again Doctor for giving that back to me!!!! — As seen on Rate MDs


Dr. Stallman performed lower eyelid surgery on me for double bags under each eye as well as blue shadows from those bags. The results were amazing! The look is natural but a vast improvement. I am extremely pleased. Plus, I always felt as if I were the only patient he had--I never felt rushed and all my questions were answered completely. — As seen on Rate MDs


I was referred to Dr. Stallman by my eye doctor because my left eyelid would not open completely. He performed the medical surgery, and I am so happy with the results! The procedure went well, the muscle works good again, and my self-esteem is positive. I highly recommend him. He answered all my questions and concerns, so I felt confident with his services. — As seen on Rate MDs


Dr. Stallman adjusted my eyelids - upper and lower in both eyes. The result was everything I had hoped for and the experience was first-rate in all measures. Dr. Stallman is highly talented in surgery and equally skilled in patient understanding and compassion. His staff shares his concern for and attention to the patient. His office organized my insurance payments so I had no major bill facing me at the end. I recommend him without reservation. — As seen on Rate MDs

I brought my 7 year old son in for a lazy eye lid. Being this my first born son I was so nervous. The Doctor and his staff were amazing.

After consulting with other doctors who advised a Shock and Awe approach to my quest for a more youthful face, Dr Stallman was a refreshing and reasonable alternative. He provided me with a number of options and explained them all thoroughly. I never felt pressured and his staff is very accommodating! — As seen on Vitals


I chose Dr. Paul Stallman to perform an Upper Blepharoplasty and Brow Lift for me in July of 2013. I am extremely picky and simply would not go to a regular plastic surgeon for work on my face. I visited his office 3 times before scheduling the procedure. Each visit, I had a million questions, all of which were answered to my satisfaction by either Dr. Stallman, himself, or his very knowledgeable and capable assistant, Allison. I was invariably treated with patience, respect, dignity, and a value of my privacy. The procedure was performed at the Coastal Surgical Institutes, right down the street from Dr. Stallman's Pismo Beach office. Dr. Stallman and approximately 20 other MDs are the physician owners of this Ambulatory Surgery Center. My experience there could not have been better. I was treated with professionalism, respect, kindness, and competence from the time I walked in the door, until the time I left (and even before and after with any telephone conversations, etc.). This facility was state of the art, very peaceful and calm, clean, and staffed and run very well. I believe it represented a very cost effective way to have these procedures done. My total cost was $7500, which in addition to the procedures and all the before/after visits to Dr. Stallman included the Surgery Center and an MD/Anesthesiologist. Another thing I really like about seeing an Oculoplastic Surgeon is that he knows the eye, itself, and has all the equipment to look into the eyes and perform all the tests before and after the procedure to be sure no aspect of the eye or my vision is being compromised. Dr. Stallman is exceedingly competent, caring, and compassionate, while at the same time not being in the least bit full of himself as can be the tendency in his profession. The results of my procedures far exceeded my expectations. Immediately following, and to this day 6 weeks post op- I am simply thrilled with the results, which easily took 12 years off of the appearance of my face. I do not hesitate to give Dr. Paul Stallman my full recommendation; if you are on or near the Central Coast of California and are considering any cosmetic procedures on or around your eyes, run, don't walk, to Dr. Stallman's office. The only thing you will regret is having waited so long! — As seen on Vitals

Dr. Stallman has dual training. He is a board certified ophthalmologist who then completed a fellowship in oculofacial plastic surgery. As an oculofacial plastic surgeon, he is keenly aware of the impact that our eyes and face have on our outward appearance and is particularly sensitive to the delicateness of this area. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and is one of only a few hundred doctors in the United States who has qualified as fellow of the prestigious American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). It takes years of specialized training to safely perform procedures on the delicate tissues around the eyes and face. To master the specialty, Dr. Stallman began with an internal medicine internship followed by three years of eye surgery training after completing medical school. He then became board certified and completed extensive advanced OculoFacial Plastic Surgery training, qualifying oral and written examinations and a scientific thesis. All this was required before being considered by his peers for fellowship in ASOPRS. Dr. Stallman is one of the few certified specialist of this nature on the Central Coast of California and has also enjoyed helping patients who come from neighboring areas such as Santa Barbara, Monterey, Fresno and Bakersfield. —As seen on Vitals


My procedures proved easier than I thought they would be. I had my eyelids done before somewhere else and I was a bit apprehensive. However, Dr. Stallman and his staff were so hospitable and caring that I was really put at ease. I found his technique of doing the procedures much easier. The surgery went by fast and the healing process went by very quickly. I really liked that Dr. Stallman called me after the procedure to check on me. The outcome has been so wonderful! I would highly recommend Dr. Stallman and his friendly staff. — SD, San Luis Obispo


I was pleased beyond my expectations with my upper and lower eyelid surgery. Dr. Stallman an his staff were helpful and left no detail unaddressed. I strongly recommend Dr. Stallman and his office for any cosmetic surgery you may be considering. — From www.RateMDs.com


I had consulted with several other doctors before selecting Dr. Stallman for my cosmetic procedure. He was very generous with his time, answering all of my questions, giving me detailed explanations and making sure that the procedure would suit me both in terms of recovery and expectations. Other people who were happy with their results from him had referred me and made the same comments. I have a really nice outcome now and would recommend him strongly. — VB, Santa Barbara


My surgery experience has been positive during each phase including exam, planning, surgery and postop. Dr. Stallman and staff are very professional and pleasant. The surgery facility was impressive and the staff excellent! Most importantly, I am pleased with the results. — NH, San Luis Obispo


I visited Dr. Stallman to discuss options for removing advanced sun damage on my face. After listening to my wishes and concerns, he determined that I would be a good candidate for (and be happiest with) the type of results achieved from the full, not fractional, CO2 laser skin resurfacing procedure. I'm 56 and had never had any prior laser treatments. Dr. Stallman thoroughly explained the procedure and the pre and post care. He also made sure I understood what to expect, realistically, from a cosmetic standpoint. This is a serious procedure that requires serious thought and I felt confident that Dr. Stallman had the experience and skill to give me the best outcome. The surgery was scheduled at the SLO surgical center, and his assistant, Allison was careful to review all the important details about recovery and post care. The procedure went smoothly and I had only minimal pain (more like a bad sunburn). The doctor closely monitored my healing, and Allison and Nicki were always available by phone whenever I had questions. As a result, I had zero complications.

Dr. Stallman and his entire staff are professional, courteous and generous with their time. It's been 3 months and I am completely healed. I am delighted with the results. My new skin looks clear and beautiful. Almost all of my old age spots are gone and my wrinkles around my eyes, lips and even the deep vertical creases in my cheeks are drastically minimized. I get a lot of "WOWs" from husband, my friends and family plus comments that I look about years younger! I am an expressive person, and I know that without Botox or fillers my facial lines will return. And that's okay with me. I am just really happy to have been able to remove the sun-damaged skin, safely, and now understand the importance of taking better care of my new, younger looking skin. I would recommend Dr. Stallman to anyone seeking cosmetic surgery. — From www.Yahoo.com


I am very pleased with the results from my procedure. I look much better; refreshed and rested without appearing like I had surgery. Dr. Stallman and his staff were friendly, supportive as well as professional in every way. I would encourage anyone who is considering a cosmetic procedure to consult with Dr. Stallman. — RW, Paso Robles


I have had eye disease for over 30 years and have had several surgeries that resulted in the sagging of my left eyelid. The sagging was hindering my eyesight, as well, as affecting my overall appearance, so I finally decided to do something about it. My personal physician recommended Dr. Stallman and I am so happy that he did and that I followed through. Dr. Stallman has performed several procedures on my left eye over the past year. The latest one was a Bilateral Upper Lid Blepharoplasty and it has had a profound affect on my life. I feel and look so much better and my vision has improved. My only regret is not having done this sooner. So do not hesitate. Dr. Stallman is very compassionate, he explains what he is doing in easy to understand terms. He take time to anwser questions and makes you feel comfortable. His staff is always friendly, caring, and helpful. I highly recomnend Dr. Stallman. — From www.RateMDs.com


Dr. Stallman explained to me in detail everything about my surgery and spent so much time with me. I had a thorough understanding of everything going on before during and after the surgery. If I had a question or need after surgery it was taken care of. I am soooo pleased with how my eyes look now – like they did many years ago. People tell me that I look great. I would tell anyone interested about my really nice experience with Dr. Stallman and his staff. — PB, San Luis Obispo


This was a great job. I noticed improvements immediately and would do it again in a minute. — LB, Pismo Beach


After researching an oculoplastic surgeon (specializing in the eyes/face) to perform upper and lower blephoraplasty surgery I was very happy to find Dr. Stallman right in my own backyard. I literally live about a minute away, which wasn't why I chose him, but it definitely was a plus. Dr. Stallman has all the qualifications with 20 years of experience. The doctor and his staff were very nice and accommodating answering my questions and helped me to feel confident (as confident as one can feel about facial cosmetic surgery). My surgery was May 9, 2013, and I am very pleased at 2 months post op. There are many concerns about blephoraplasty surgeons taking too much fat/skin away from the eye area, leaving a hollowed appearance, or scar tissue pulling that too little skin left away from the eye, but Dr. Stallman was very conservative (he took just the right amount and I did not need any skin removed - transconjuctival procedure).

In my opinion, Dr. Stallman is an expert in judgement as well as in performance. I followed all post op recovery practices and I had no problems. If you are considering blephoraplasty I can attest to Dr. Stallman being a great doctor who will give your eyes a very natural looking makeover without leaving you looking as though you had cosmetic work done. Thank you Dr. Stallman, and staff! You are all awesome, and I'll be back if I need any further facial work. Oh, and last but not least, Dr. Stallman's office accepts major credit cards (just not Discover Card - hint hint, I would have liked to use my Discover card doc!), and they offer another form of financing/credit too.


I can highly recommend Dr. Stallman in San Luis Obispo as a plastic surgeon. I was terrified about having surgery (lower eye bags). But it was so much better than I thought it would be. It was really pretty easy. I am so glad that I had the procedure done. The after care was wonderful. They really couldn't do enough for you and made me so at ease. I am living in the UK now but if I ever needed any more surgery I would definitely come back to have Dr. Stallman do it! — AP, England


I decided to leave Fresno to find a plastic surgeon and chose Dr. Stallman. His office was very accommodating and made the process simple and smooth. The procedure went great and it was nice to be away from my usual environment for the procedure and immediate after care. When I came back home people thought I looked really good but didn't know I had anything done (except for the people real close to me). — TJ, Fresno


As a pilot I was concerned about my reduced field of vision from my upper lids drooping. Dr. Stallman performed surgery on my upper eyelids and my peripheral vision greatly improved. This is a really worthwhile procedure for anyone with puffiness and drooping of the eyelids. — GA, Arroyo Grande
