Steven Teitelbaum, MD Reviews (480)

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 :)

Male Breast Reduction

The staff was polite, informative and professional. The entire experience was pleasent.

Breast Augmentation

I tend to do a lot of research before I make appointments or decide to undergo any elective treatments or services. This is my first time undergoing any kind of surgery let alone elective cosmetic surgery so of course I was nervous, but Dr. Teitelbaum and his staff have made me feel very comfortable and at ease - I feel very informed of how things will go leading up to and following surgery and every question I have had has been answered.

Mommy Makeover

Very impressive office staff, surgeon, before and after pictures. Emphasis clearly placed on safety and natural looking results.

Breast Augmentation

From the day I received the literature before my first appointment I felt that Dr. Teitelbaum understood and valued the concerns I had about breast augmentation--namely the trust I put into a doctor performing surgery on me, most natural and beautiful result and the fastest recovery time possible. All of these expectations were met and exceeded in my experience with him and his staff. He's good at what he does, from selecting the best implant size and shape to the surgery itself and everything in between. I have three small children and was unhappy with the way my breasts had practically disappeared after breastfeeding and wanted something close to what I had before kids (only maybe a little better). He took thorough dictation of the specifics of my requests and concerns. He also has much more experience with the teardrop implants that I really wanted and thought those would be the most natural looking choice for me, which I was thrilled about. The previous surgeons I'd met with had basically said that those implants made for a somewhat more difficult surgery and recovery, but Dr. Teitelbaum said, because he'd helped pioneer them, they were really no different to him. I love the 3-D imagining his nurse, Karen (who is just the sweetest) did of several different implant sizes--those images really helped me understand what to expect on my body. And the recovery time is really the kicker. The other two surgeons told me I'd be in bed for a few days at least and then unable to do much for several weeks. Dr. T, on the other hand, told me I should go out for dinner that night. Drastic difference there. Surgery was easy--a wonderful nap! And I was able to help put my kids to bed that night. I'm 2 months out and thrilled with the result. I feel womanly and not self-conscious. The staff--from Vicky the surgery coordinator, to Karen to the anesthesiologist are all top notch. So happy and have recommended several friends.

Breast Augmentation

The doctor and staff were incredible. The procedure was worth every penny. It was a very easy, not stressful experience and I had amazing results. I love looking in the mirror and knowing that this is my body.

Breast Implant Revision

Doctor sells a level of expertise and patient experience that were not delivered. I visited the doctor post-procedure with my concerns and was advised my results were satisfactory". Results are sub-par and will require a correction."
