Breast Implant Revision

Very professional. Great communication.

Breast Implant Revision

I did feel a little rushed during my appointment

Breast Augmentation

Pre surgery: communication was prompt. Vicki was very informative and quick in responding to any questions or concerns I my have had. She was also very friendly. Information package was very helpful and detailed.Surgery: Dr. Teitelbaum was warm, reassuring, confident and knowledgable. He has excellent bedside manner and did an amazing job on my breast augmentation. My breasts are even and the scars are in a perfect location, small and thin. I did feel a bit rushed to leave the office during my transfer to serenity but I was happy once I arrived and was able to sleep in a comfortable bed. Post recovery: My healing time was normal and any concerns I had were promptly responded to by my post operative nurse. As an international client, I felt very comfortable and confident traveling to see Dr. Teitelbaum. The main reason I chose him over thee doctors was because he did an under breast incision, his experience and expertise with gummy breast implant and Tummy tucks. I would recommend providing clients with the Canadian names of the medication required as I could not find the bacteria killing skin soap here in Canada. My breasts are perfect and exactly what I asked for. The healing time stated was exactly what I experienced. I am back to being physically active and everything is healing wonderfully. Dr. Teitelbaum was also very nice and easy to speak with.

Tummy Tuck

Most importantly, I liked the surgeon. I was interested in a particular surgery which he did not recommend. He explained why is a thoughtful and honest manner. I then suggested a tummy tuck - which he thought was warranted. I will schedule it in the next 6 months, as my scheduled permits. Additionally, his support staff was wonderful.

Tummy Tuck

The moment Dr. Teitelbaum came into the exam room, he was very friendly and professional. I felt totally comfortable. He asked questions and listened to my answers and everything I had to say and ask. The procedure I was asking about turned out to not be what I really need. Dr. Teitelbaum explained in detail what really needed to be done and what he would do. He showed me what was needed and explained everything. By the end of the consultation, I felt totally comfortable and confidant that I would only see him for the surgery. I have scheduled my surgery for October.

Breast Augmentation

Excellent recovery and results No more padded bras more freedom in my dress and confidence

Liposuction

Experience was positive, we were well treated, explanations were clear, appointment was on time.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. T is extremely knowledgeable. I only wished he wasn't late to the consultation and kept coming in and out b/t my time at the basic examination and time trying on the implants. Karen is great and helpful, but I'm more confident in answers from my surgeon, not the RN. It was as if he had multiple patients or appointments today tend to. To top it off, this is a paid consultation, I was expecting to have a sit down consultation for an hour where he could go over all the questions I had written down.

Breast Implant Revision

The prior consultation I had with another highly qualified doctor, did not go well. I did not like him or his attitude. Dr. Teitelbaum was very different, and I felt very comfortablewith him.

Tummy Tuck

The staff was knowledgeable and polite and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Teitelbaum was very nice, listened, and made the experience a comfortable one.

Face Lift

Everything went as expected. I am very happy with the outcome. The result was what I expected. The surgery went well. The recovery went well. Everything went well.

Breast Reduction

Leading up to my surgery, I received phone calls from the anesthesiologist and surgeon themselves to ask me if I had any questions and make me feel comfortable. It was a very personal experience and they made time for me. I also received the most detailed preop booklet ever. It covered all the possible questions I may have. It also included multiple ways to contact not only the office, but the surgeon himself. After surgery I had a slight reaction to some steri strips, and sent a photo asking if it was okay. I got a reassuring answer within minutes. I am so happy with my results. I feel more comfortable in my clothes and there is a huge stress relief on my shoulders and back. I can do all the things that a teenager of my age should get to do. Before bathing suits were humiliating. Now I feel so comfortable and free to live it up!

Breast Reduction

Highly skilled surgeon, competent and caring staff. Better self image, improved confidence

Breast Augmentation

The whole process was very professional and thorough. Every member of the staff and surgeon very extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

Breast Augmentation

I am absolutely amazed by the result of my breast augmentation, it looks exactly like I wanted it to.. although I was very nervous of going to big and not natural, the staff really listened to what I wanted and helped me with decisions that gave me the end result I wanted. They are all very friendly, and the knowledge of Dr Teitelbaum is impressive. Thanks. Could not recommend your office more often.

Breast Implant Revision

I actually am highly satisfied, not sure if I hit a wrong button. I wouldn't be having surgery with Dr. Teiltelbaum and his staff if I didn't feel like they were super knowledgable. I came back to his practice after having to have a revision capsular contracture, I did research and realize that Dr. T is best surgeon in LA to do this procedure and he did a great job of listening to me the first time around. I just hope this is my last breast augmentation surgery.

Breast Augmentation

I was highly satisfied.

Breast Augmentation

Overall experience wonderful, staff so attentive and detailed in material of information for pre and post op. Impressive in house operating room and highly skilled nurses. Quick and easy post op and access to doctor 24/7 with any questions or concerns. Brought me great self confidence!!

Breast Reduction

Dr. Teitelbaulm was incredibly professional, detail oriented and offered a more reasonable solution for the procedure that I am considering. I am very impressed that he had a nurse present during the exam. Offering an alternative solution for achieving the goal I have in mind, gave me a lot of confidence about Dr. Teitelbaum's professional judgment.

Eyelid Surgery

My second visit with Dr Teitelbaums office. Would go back if I need more surgery. Would and have recommended to friends. All good! :) Just less eyelid. I can now see my eyeliner :)
