Tummy Tuck

Everyone was wonderful. April is amazing. Highly recommend Dr Teitelbaum, his office and his staff. Great experience. Much more confident now.

Breast Augmentation

My results are amazing. My recovery was easy and my post op was wonderful. I was able to get yup and move and Dr. T didn't seem to traumatize the tissues at all. I had NO bruising. He is really good at what he does, arguably the best and he is worth EVERY penny

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Teitelbaum is clearly very experienced but still takes the time to answer each question completely. His work and reputation preceed him, yet he is very relatable and conversational.

Breast Augmentation

staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Dr. is highly regarded. He's a little rushed-- i would have appreciated him slowing down and making eye contact. But otherwise, I'm comfortable and look forward to having the surgery behind me.

Breast Augmentation

I felt all of my answers were answered in full. I scheduled two consultations because after seeing another doctor I wanted to go more in depth about why he recommended a smaller size and what was the largest I could go without being fake. I think he takes real pride in his work and truly aims to not make women look fake which is what I was worried about. The consultation was great and I never had a doubt I would use him for surgery. I only saw the other doctor because I would never feel fully confident in my size selection if I didn't have other opinions. Very excited for surgery.

Body Lift

The whole staff was helpful and friendly. I felt completely comfortable.

Face Lift

Dr. Teitelbaum is a first rate physician. He communicates clearly. He listens. He does not try to sell you on anything. I believe he is one of the best physicians I have dealt with and I professionally dealt with doctors and health care providers my whole life.I trust him implicitly.

Breast Augmentation

For years I have researched and received recommendations for breast augmentation. After many changes in my body due to stress and hormones, I finally took the leap and chose Dr. Teitelbaum and it's the best decision I've made! I found Teitelbaum and his amazing staff through my own research. Once I poured through the website, I was sold and I went directly to them. From the first phone call to schedule a consultation, to my healing results, I have had an amazing experience. It has restored so much confidence and happiness back in myself, and everyone loves my results! They are absolutely perfect for my body and am extremely pleased at how natural they look. I have no complaints and nothing I would change about any aspect of my experience! I have high expectations, and everybody went above and beyond. Also, every staff member was comforting with the nerves and concerns with surgery, and answered every question. I very much appreciated the organization and information we received during the process. I couldn't be more happy! I can't thank you enough, Dr. Teitelbaum & Staff!


I am highly satisfied because Dr. Teitelbaum took the time and explained to me the removable of my implants and not knowing what I look like before he has ordered my records from my previous plastic surgeon. I did not want a lift done and the plastic surgeon said I needed it done. Very Satisfied and Very nervous with the surgery coming up in August. I am also getting my muffin top and back liposuck. [initials]

Tummy Tuck

The confidence that this practice gave me was the key reason I chose Dr. Teitelbaum. He is highly trained and teaches as well. He is current in all procedures and surgery techniques. His staff is amazing! His surgery center is licensed and certified. And as important as all this is, he is so nice and doesn't make you feel uncomfortable at all! He genuinely cares about you as a patient. I believe this was a smart choice based on safety and skill.

Breast Lift

This is the best thing I have ever done, Dr.T is the absolute best and I couldn't be happier!! I look way better and have so much more confidence

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Teitelbaum was great and i was very comfortable. I was pretty nervous and all of the staff including Dr. Teitelbaum made the visit very easy and reassuring. The office is beautiful and professional, but still very comfortable. It was really great.

Body Lift

Surgeon was very attentive, answered all of my questions. He was knowledgeable & professional.

Mommy Makeover

The knowledge and thoroughness of the surgeon. Also, I felt he was very conservative and not wanting to make a bigger surgery than necessary...

Face Lift

Dr. T and his staff are fantastic.

Breast Augmentation

Active involvement of surgeon during consultation. Knowledgeable and professional staff that took time to address other questions. Great communication throughout.

Breast Augmentation

I don’t think the team spent enough time understanding my concerns and goals before the operation, and they didn’t spent enough time looking and recommending the right implants for my body based on their years of experience, everything was very fast, I guess I trust too much about choosing one of the best places and letting things go. The operation went well, I’m happy for that but the results are not good for a body like me, I feel like I got aximetry but not really augmentation, they are not nice. The worst part was to be force to wake up from the anestesia and look at the results immediately, as they weren’t cover or anything, I got a terrible shock. Worst experience of my life, I never went through something like this before and affected me so badly for weeks. Looks like they are ok fixing the work if nothing change so far, so maybe this and time helps to change my point of view but too soon to talk about that as we didn’t move forward with it yet.

Scar Revision

Visiting this office is always a very pleasant experience in every way. I highly recommend the group for their professional skills and their interpersonal skills as well.Dr.Teitlebaum is highly skilled and very personable as a surgeon. His staff, nurses and anesthesiologist, are fabulous. In a word, this group is the BEST!

Breast Lift

Beautiful office, expert staff, friendly personable doctor, realistic expectations set for results from surgery. Helpful you tube videos online answered some questions I was too embarrassed to ask, I changed my mind about something I wanted after the initial consultation and felt very supported and not like I was troubling the doctor or staff, focus on natural beauty and bringing out my natural self vs creating an unnatural beauty. Also knowing the majority of patients in the office were normal moms like me. Pricing felt fair and explained. I had nerves about anesthesia and while the surgeon didn’t really help me feel confident about my fears, the anesthesiologist was very calming and accommodating of my strange requests I am a completely different person. I found a confidence and a pride in my body I have never felt before. I enjoy shopping for clothes and bathing suits- something I often dreaded before. My relationship with my husband is completely different- out sex life is so much better- I feel confident when I am naked- something I NEVER felt, even before kids.

Breast Augmentation

I am beyond thrilled with the results. They are exactly what I was hoping for. I feel terrific and have been able to resume all exercise and have received many complements on the results. Thank you for everything!
