Mommy Makeover

Highly satisfied with the quality of work Dr. T provides.

Breast Augmentation

When I started searching for a reconstructive/breast augmentation surgeon, I was looking for a doctor to help bring my breasts back to life. After searching online for almost one-year - and after my consultation with Dr. Teitelbaum - I had zero hesitation flying from DC to LA for surgery. Dr. Teitelbaum and his team really listened to what I wanted, and he delivered. The whole process was simple and straightforward, plus it exceeded my expectations. The end result was exactly, if not more, than what I envisioned.Thank you Dr. Teitelbaum -I couldn’t be happier!

Every staff member in the office was outstanding when it came to my needs and making me feel at home and comfortable. There were are very attentive and helped me feel relaxed and prepared throughout from the initial consult to after care. Dr. T was perfect! His work is impeccable and I could not be happier! THANK YOU

Tummy Tuck

The consult was very informative. I found the staff super friendly and helpful. And I really enjoyed talking to the doctor and getting my questions answered about the procedure.

Breast Lift

Dr. Teitelbaum, his patient coordinator, and his nurse couldn't have been more kind, genuine, and knowledgeable. After seeing four other doctors for consultations Dr. Teitelbaum came across as the most honest, educated, and sincere doctor that I have met with.

Treatment / Procedure

Physician and staff are highly qualified, available, accomodating, patient, thorough and gracious. What more could one ask for?

Breast Augmentation

[Single best thing is...] The single best thing about this surgery is that I was finally able to see and have the body I have always wanted. I am now more comfortable in my skin and clothes. I feel like Dr. T helped me get to where I am now & without him & his team it would not have been possible. Dr. T & his team were welcoming & professional throughout my entire experience. Dr. T listened to what I wanted & helped me find the perfect breast implant size for my body

Breast Augmentation

I was a very nervous patient coming in to see Dr. Teitelbaum. I used to have larger breasts before having kids and really wanted my old boobs back without having surgery. After 10 years of waiting, I heard about Dr. Teitelbaum. To start, his website is the first website where I actually LIKED the Before and After pictures and thought the breasts looked natural. The first thing I said to Dr Teitelbaum when I met him was I HATE FAKE BOOBS and I don't want anyone to know that I have them. I was a tough patient because I wanted them to look natural. After seeing the results: I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER. THEY ARE PERFECT and exactly what I wanted. They are so perfect for me that I am almost shocked. Even right after surgery when they were more swollen then normal, I could tell they were going to be great -- because even swollen, they were better than most fake boobs I have seen.On top of that my recovery was exactly as expected: I was up and showering and out to dinner the day of surgery. I was at my son's games the day after surgery. Definitely a little sore but back to working out within 3 weeks.I am so happy with the results -they really look natural which is EXACTLY what I wanted.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. T was so personable and honest. I was a pharm rep for many years and dealt with physicians on a daily basis. He really was a whole different experience from beginning to end...honest, caring and very thorough. I've already recommended him to 2 people based on our initial consult and haven't had the surgery yet.

Breast Augmentation

[Single best thing is...] I'm truly amazed how beautiful and natural my breast implants turned out. The best decision I made was doing this for myself and allowing Dr. T. to select the size that was right for my petite frame. They are perfect and beautiful. Thank you. This was my first surgery and I had three things done. Thank you for making my first experience a good one. I was very nervous.

Breast Implant Removal

I felt so comfortable with everyone who cared for me and the OR is run with such excellence that I felt confident going in. It was also fun to see the same faces from when i had my implants put in 11 years ago! My pre and post operative protocol was amazing and I recovered so quickly I believe because of nausea or any real need for pain meds due to the nerve block. I flew across country and paid about $1800 more to have Dr.T do my surgery so that speaks for itself:)

Breast Augmentation

The entire process was so streamlined. I am a very nervous person, but this was truly a breeze - from the initial consult, to booking, to surgery, to the day after surgery. I am at 2 months post-op and have zero regrets; moreover, I am so very proud to tell all my close friends and family about Dr. T's office. Best surgeon + staff, quick recovery, very little pain (if any at all), and even better results!

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. T is very attentive. He is thoughtful about his responses to questions and very reliable.
