Breast Lift

I was highly satisfied because of the level of professionalism at Dr. Teitelbaum's office. The staff was very friendly and informative. I was at ease because of the level of confidence the staff has. It helped with a lot of my pre-op nerves. Post-op the staff did a great job helping me out and making sure I was happy and healthy.

Breast Implant Revision

This is the first surgery I had that had so much attention to preop detail. Dr. T spent time really understanding our wants, and helping me to be sure. The anesthesiologist called me the night before and went over the procedure with me with great care, answering my questions and making me feel secure. April, was amazing with after care and no question was ever too small or silly.

Neck Lift

The Doctor was very professional and made me feel comfortable with the procedures I'm interested in. His expertise and knowledge helped to ease my nerves. He assured me that I would not have an overdone look and that I would look refreshed!

Breast Augmentation

Three months out result looks and feels amazing. Post surgery experience had minimal pain and difficulty.

The doctor explained all my options in easy to understand terminology and answered all my questions in great detail. He was friendly and easy to talk to as well.

Clean surgical lines, tight flat stomach, professional doctor.

Breast Augmentation

Surgery was as easy as it possibly could have been. The recovery was pain free, and the amazing team or nurses answered every question I threw at them before and after surgery. The results are natural, fit my body, and compliment my figure.

Everyone is very nice, surgery went smooth

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Teitelbaum and his team of outstanding professionals competently delivered better than I hoped for results. I had my procedure done on January 20, 2021 and every week I look better and better. Dr. Teitelbaum is a true artist of his craft. He is gentle, charismatic and highly skilled. The results of my procedure have given me a confidence I'd lost a long time ago. I honestly struggle to find words that can even come close to the accolades he deserves. He is in the top 1% of the Master Class of artisans. I have worked in the medical field for 33 years. In those years I have never worked with nor seen an office so truly synchronized with the goal of providing compassion, exceptional patient care and fantastic results in a seemingly effortless fashion. At this office, you are not just a patient, you are family. I would be remiss if I didn't mention Dr. T's anesthesiologist Dr. Moorman. She is truly top-tier and fits in perfectly. She answered every one of my questions and helped ease me into my procedure. Let's face it, surgery is scary! She along with the surgical team got me through with flying colors. I had zero discomfort in my breast even to this day. That's saying something! In closing, I send out love and gratitude to the goddesses who cared for me. To April the beautifully spirited one, Nancy the nightingale, Vicky the elegant jack of all trades, Maria the amazing, Jackie, Pattie and Michelle- thank you for holding my hand and treating me like a Queen. I love you all. I thoroughly encourage anyone considering surgery to do your homework and consult with as many specialists as you choose. I am 1000% confident you will ultimately return to Dr. Teitelbaum's for your procedure. You wont be disappointed.

It was a great experience, so thorough and I'm looking forward to scheduling the procedure.

Breast Augmentation

My first BA consultation with Dr. Teitelbaum was very straightforward. It is best to educate yourself with his videos he's uploaded on his website and then to write down your questions before you meet him. Dr. Teitelbaum took my measurements and I showed him pictures of what I was looking for. From there we discussed exactly what I wanted in shape and size. I am a 32A and want a very natural tear drop look, but also full. Dr. Teitelbaum took my measurements and told me what size would look the most natural and full. I feel confident in Dr. Teitelbaum, my BA is set for this Thursday and I am so excited! I will try my best to update when I can with the results.
