Dr.Knoetgen was very compassionate and sensitive to my concerns. His staff went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and put my mind at ease. Additionally, I was very well informed about the surgical process as well as pre and post-operative care. I would highly recommend Dr.Knoetgen for all of your cosmetic surgery needs.

I found my doctor online. He is very qualified and I really liked him when I went for my consultation. After I told him what I wanted done, he examined me and didn't feel that I needed a BL and suggested that I just go with the BA and TT. I was impressed that he didn't just try to make more $. I looked through pics of his work, which were great, and was shown what my results would be similar too. He really listened to what results I am hoping for. He is very nice and didn't get upset when, because of my nerves, I kept asking questions before he could finish telling me everything. He made me feel excited about getting this done. I have recommended him to my friends.

I had gone to a cou[ple of other Dr's prior to Dr. Knoetgen and they did pass my first impressions. I Chose Beautologie because what I had heard good things. I was given an appointment with Dr. Knoetgen when I called, but once I met him I knew he was the Dr. for me. He listened to my concerns and supported my decissions. He is never rushed and makes you feel like you are his only pt. I had a tummy tuck done by Dr. Knoetgen Oct. 2011. I would recommend Dr. Knoetgen as a plastic surgeon. He did a great job from my first consultation all the way through to my recovery. He is very personable, nice & gives you his full attention. All my questions & concerns were answered usually before I asked them.

I wanted to stay local, Internet searched, read reviews, lots of reviews. After my consultation with Dr. Knoetgen, my husband and I felt comfortable that he and his team knew what they were doing with plenty of experience, that I would be given the care and treatment with very capable hands:) I like that they have their own surgery center, with that the support (not just the surgeon), has ample experience in understanding my needs.

Dr Knoetgen is a great surgeon, and just a nice, friendly guy, he always remembers who I am, and he wants me to be happy with my end results. And I am!

I researched plastic surgeons in the area and found him to be a good match. I wanted someone who was a bit younger-for personal reasons and comfort issues reagrding older men. He also studied with the mayo clinic and is certified by 4 different boards/societies. He was very courteous and professional and never made me feel creeped out. They also allowed my son to come to my appts due to my husband being deployed a lot. I can't wait for my post op appt and I'm hoping the right side has dropped just like the pretty left one! :) I loved the atmosphere of Dr. Knoetgen's office and staff. I had a great experience with them and I enjoyed my conversations with the ladies that work there.
