5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best PS in the Twin Cities - Minneapolis, MN

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

Love the Stunning Results! - Minneapolis, MN

Show More A thorough research process of the procedure led me to conclude that I was looking for a practice that included: 1. a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in lower body lifts. 2. an office staff that exemplified a team approach to delivering excellent care in all aspects of the process. 3. the opportunity to have my surgery in a free standing outpatient operating facility. (lower risk of infections; surgeon and support staff are well orchestrated, efficient team in familiar setting). By choosing Dr T, all of the above qualities were quickly evident and my expectations exceeded. In addition, I found that I was treated with the utmost respect and dignity. Each and every one of my questions was answered completely, patiently and enthusiastically, both by Dr Tholen and his knowledgeable staff. There was a prevalent attitude that this group of professionals was proud of their quality care, and loved their jobs. Happy workers make happy patients! I felt totally prepared for what the operation and recovery would be like. Dr T delivers care that is based on sound evidence leading to predictable consistent results - you will not find any gimmicky gadgets or procedures that are experimental or merely for marketing purposes. I have quite a bit of experience with behind the scenes doctors offices, and this one is the real deal. The other practices with whom I consulted all had some good features, but Dr T's practice had the complete package.

Best Doctor by Far ... -Minneapolis, MN

A Decision I Continue to Be Thankful for Everyday! - Minneapolis, MN

Show More The rating is at this high level because I want others to experience what I was lucky enough to experience. I know this is a big decision to make in a person's life and high amounts of anxiety come with it. However, I want everyone to understand the positive experience I had because it makes all the difference. I have been and will continue to recommend Dr. Tholen to others. I found Dr. Tholen's practice after reviewing many plastic surgeons on the internet. For many years I have wanted to get this procedure done but couldn't find anyone I trusted or felt good enough about to follow through with it, until I met Dr. Tholen. After speaking with him and his office, it was clear to me without a doubt I was going to make the 10 hour trip through multiple states because I knew this is where I would find the best care available. He answered all questions and concerns I had. He discussed all areas of the surgery and put my mind at ease regarding normal concerns every patient has going into surgery. The day of the surgery I wasn't nervous, I was excited!! :) Dr. Tholen and his staff were personal and knowledgeable throughout my experience with them. They all made me feel so comfortable XXXX. Before surgery Dr. Tholen re-covered all areas of the surgery and discussed size again. He had a way of approaching me so I wasn't nervous or feeling hesitant at all. I was excited and ready to complete the procedure I had been looking forward to for so many years. After surgery I woke up to very accommodating staff that took care of me until I was stable enough to leave. Before I left Dr. Tholen checked in with me again to ask about the results to make sure I was doing okay. I could not be happier about the results of my procedure. The recovery was practically painless, there was no bruising, and I was back on my feet doing every day activities in no time. I would recommend Dr. Tholen and his staff to anyone who is looking to get any type of plastic surgery complete.

My Total Experience from First Consultation to Surgery and Aftercare Was Absolutely Professional & Perfect - Minneapolis, MN

Show More I was so very fortunate to have chosen Dr. T as my doctor for this monumental decision. It was literally transformative. I only regret I did not pursue this decision earlier in my life, but if it meant waiting for Dr. T to perform my surgery than I am happy I waited. My advice would be to call Dr. T’s office and make the consultation appointment. His professionalism and honesty will guide you the rest of the way.

What a Fabulous Experience - Minneapolis, MN

Show More He is fabulous but for me more importantly so is his staff. Every person I came in contact with was so caring and knowlegable. From the front desk to the surgical area. I felt in excellent hands professionally but also personally.
