5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Loving my New Look - La Jolla, CA

I traveled over a thousand miles to Dr. Krant, for a facelift and am so glad I found him. He and his staff are the best I've ever heard about or known. His work is perfection.

Wonderful Experience with the BEST Doctor! - La Jolla, CA

Word of mouth from other friends. Dr. Krant was so caring, experienced and understanding of my goal to have perky, larger breasts, but not too big that would not interfere with my running or swimming and active lifestyle. His nurses and staff were so welcoming and nice every time I went to appointments. The surgery went fantastic and Dr. Krant is truly the most caring Doctor I have ever had. My husband and I have given Dr. Krant the nickname "Picasso", because he is truly an artist and my breasts look and feel so natural. I couldn't be happier with my experience and outcome.

A SKilled & Caring Surgeon - La Jolla, CA

Dr Krant did my original breast augmentation and lift in 2005 ~ they looked and felt very natural! His aftercare is amazing. If there was ever an issue he was always available. That being his nature, he has also been the ordering Dr for my yearly mammogram. Fast forward 5 years ~ I was shocked when I was diagnosed with DCIS (breast cancer.) Within minutes of calling his office, he called me back, took me under his wing, lent me an ear and a shoulder to cry on and then quarterbacked my fight! Without him, I don't know where I would be. Dr Krant, Dr A and staff are a wonderful team of professionals ~ they took the stress factor away and made the process easy. I am so blessed to have them on my team!

The Best Surgeon and the Most Caring Doctor - La Jolla, CA

After having several unsuccessful post- mastectomy reconstruction surgeries, I was basically told that my problem could not be fixed. I almost lost hope, until I met Dr. Krant. I instantly knew he was the right doctor for me. He spent a long time reviewing my case and answered all my questions and concerns. He was so patient, friendly and caring, he explained all the details of the procedure (even drew pictures on a white board, demonstrating what he was going to do). His professionalism and experience made me feel that I was in very good hands. After many years working in a medical field myself, I have not seen a doctor and office staff that “babies” their patients the way Dr. Krant and his office does. They genuinely care about their patients. Dr. Krant is a congenial perfectionist. Frequent post-operative visits made my recovery smooth and easy. The results of my surgery exceeded all my expectations. I can’t thank Dr. Krant and his wonderful staff enough for their expertise and kindness!

Great Surgeon, Great Experience - I have no visible scars - La Jolla, CA

He is so honest and open in explaining to you what will work and what is best for your personal needs. I trust him completely and would recommend him to everyone. I have worked in the medical profession for over 40 years and did a lot of research before I chose Dr. Steven Krant. I have not regretted a single moment; I actually enjoyed the entire process. (Yes, there is a little discomfort but it wasn’t that bad and they prepare you well). Dr. Krant and his entire Team are very attentive, personal and work very closely with you through the whole process. I was very impressed with their preop communication in preparing me for that big day. Follow up care and attention is above and beyond, I always felt like everyone cared about my recovery and my satisfaction with the surgery. I had a private nurse for two days post op and would highly recommend that to ensure your comfort the first few days, and your family or home caregiver will greatly appreciate it. I only wish you could see my before and after pictures.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Safe, Secure and Sincere Results - La Jolla, CA

A few months ago, my best friend recommended Dr. Krant for my mommy makeover surgery. I am so glad I listened to my friend. From the moment I met Dr. Krant, I felt like I had made the best decision for me. Dr. Krant is the most sincere doctor I have ever met. He was the first doctor to really listen to my body issues and offer solutions that could help repair my tummy. I am thrilled with my results. I felt very safe throughout the surgery and Dr. Krant's meticulous attention to detail throughout the whole process is amazing. I have healed incredibly fast and I know it is because of Dr. Krant's experience, his incredible knowledge of his practice and his dedication towards his patient's well being during their healing process.

Natural, Safe, and Beautiful Results! - La Jolla, CA

What an amazing experience with Dr Krant. One of the many things I appreciate and admire about him is his commitment to the latest and safest procedures available. His desire to treat his patients with the utmost respect and confidence is apparent in the wonderful results he is able to achieve. I personally would recommend him for ANY of the procedures he offers.

I had a really, really bad nose before - Amazing! - La Jolla, CA

Dr. K is amazing. He completely transformed my face with the nose job he gave me. I really highly recommend him to anyone who is dissatisfied with their nose and is looking for something better. Trust Dr. K, he knows what he's doing. I have no regrets about my procedure. A good plastic surgeon should know what to do without you having to tell him. He did something different than what I thought he was going to do, but he's the plastic surgeon and he knew what to do. And it turned out better than what I was imagining. I totally recommend him, 100%, go to him and you'll be really happy!!! He's worth every penny!

Awful Results! - La Jolla, CA

Went to krant almost two years ago for breast augmentation because my breasts were completely different sizes. He told me he'd be able to make them completely even and perfect. I wanted full B's and came out with full C's. Months later my left side began to drop and my right areole expanded so it was twice th size of the left. When I went to see Krant and show him what happened, he told me he...
