5 out of 5 stars FTM Chest Masculinization Surgery

FTM Top Surgery and Nipple Reduction - Thousand Oaks, CA

After consultation with several surgeons, I decided to go with Dr. Kryger to have my top surgery. This was a solid decision. I had the keyhole; it was quick and painless. I was in and out in about 3 hours and had surgical drains for about a week. I thought I was going to be bed-ridden for days, but I hardly felt any pain and was free to move around even the evening after the surgery. I healed...

Age 53, Remove Ruptured Silicone Implants. Don't Wait!

Several months ago my left breast swelled and was slightly uncomfortable. A physician suggested a mammogram and breast US to rule out various problems. Later, an MRI confirmed both implants are ruptured and there is intra- and extra- capsular leakage of the silicone. Needle aspiration of some fluid came back negative for ALCL. I feel fine. So far so good. My reasons for explant are to...

35 Year Old Implants Being Removed with Lift. Hoping for All to Go Well. - Thousand Oaks, CA

First of all, I want to thank all you beautiful and brave ladies out there who have contributed to this site! Without you I don't think I would have had the courage to go ahead with this surgery even though I have wanted to do it since I first had my implants put in. My story starts back in 1979. I had small breasts, but at the time I didn't realize that they were beautiful and perfect!...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Seven Pregnancies + 84 Months of Breast Feeding + Gravity=much Needed Make over - Thousand Oaks, CA

After 7 pregnancies I had a lot of loose skin and deflated breasts. After much research and interviewing different surgeons I selected The Kryger Institute. I had a tummy tuck, breast augmentation and implants and lipo on my hips, abdomen and bra band line and multiple hernias repaired. Upon having my first consultation, the Doctor discovered that I had several abdominal hernias either...

I Am So Happy to Have the Weight off my Chest - Thousand Oaks, CA

I had a terrific experience with Dr. Kryger Their office is easy to find, lots of parking and a new office that is neat, organized, very clean and comfortable. They are well staffed in a welcoming place where I never had to wait much at all for 2 consultation appointments - very important to me What I really liked is that (I have seen both Zol and Gil) they are both professional,...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Great Doctors - Thousand Oaks, CA

I was impressed by both doctors' professionalism and compassion. I am a breast cancer survivor and had undergone a procedure to have the cancer removed. It left me a little "deflated". I had two procedures where both breasts received implants. One took and the other became encapsulated. My second surgery was to remove the encapsulated one and use my body fat to reconstruct a breast. It...

Best Doctor for Mastectomy Reconstruction -Thousand Oaks, CA

Bilateral mastectomies with immediate reconstruction. Better results than anticipated, absolutely excellent results and care from Dr. Kryger. When looking and visiting other doctors, I did not find the level of confidence and certainty of results for my situation. They worked with my insurance.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Free Tram Flap Surgery and Reconstruction - Thousand Oaks, CA

Free tram flap surgery for breast reconstruction after a mastectomy is a long and challenging procedure which Dr. Kryger did wonderfully. My recovery went smoothly as did the revision surgery. Follow up appointments were prompt and helpful with my recovery. It takes patience to fully recover but it has been 10 months now and every day is better.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Great Botox Results; Great Doctor - Thousand Oaks, CA

I've seen Dr. Kryger for a while now for Botox for a deep vertical crease between my eyebrows. Even for this simple procedure, Dr. Kryger took the time to explain to me the benefits, the risks, how long it would take to see results, and how long until I'd need another treatment. After explaining everything, he then made sure I still wanted the procedure. I really appreciated his thoroughness...

Top 3 Tips for Preventing, and Improving the Appearance of Your Scars

One of the most common aspects of the plastic surgeon's career involves managing scars and preventing them from being conspicuous. We are frequently asked by patients how to make a scar go away or how to minimize its appearance. Here are three important things you should know: 1) Keep Wounds in a Moist Environment The first thing to understand is that a scab is not a good thing for healing. Wounds heal quicker, and with better scars when they are kept in a moist environment rather...

What Every Woman Should Know About Preventive Mastectomy

Since Angelina Jolie's announcement that she had bilateral mastectomy a couple of weeks ago, there has been a lot of interest in this type of surgery. I would like to address a couple of issues that are very important for women to understand. Mastectomies (surgical removal of breast tissue) are performed for essentially two reasons: removing cancer and preventing cancer from forming. Across the board, women have about a 12 to 13% risk of developing breast cancer during the course of...
