5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

A day by day guide to the flat side with a hematoma

Down here in Southern CA there are tons of very qualified, very well publicized, and very fair priced plastic surgeons. After narrowing it down to 3 (very qualified) surgeons I ended up going with Dr (s) Kryger (brothers) because I really like the fact that they work together as a team which means less time under anesthesia. Dr. Kryger (Zol) is very professional, driven, serious, and up on the latest research and practices. Given that he is of this nature, his bedside manner suffers a bit (i.e. he is all business). When he looked at me I think I could hear the wheels turning and measurements being calculated in his mind. While his intense focus leaves something to be desired in the warm and fuzzy department, I felt 100% confident in his skill and ability levels based on the questions he asked, the explanations he gave, and the method to his process. On a side note, his brother, while I only briefly got to meet him, seems to have more of an outgoing personality (sorry I am a psychologist, I cannot help but to analyze them). One of the things that concerned me a tad bit was the fact that it seems they do a lot of reconstructive work in addition to cosmetic. I had no doubt they were very skilled surgeons but I wondered if they were as good at the aesthetics of things. But I no longer have this doubt. I am beyond thrilled with my result. The doctors, and my experience exceeded all expectations I had!!! I would recommend them to anyone considering surgery in the Southern CA region. Since I was an out of town patient my experience was a bit untraditional, for example, I had my consult and pre op via Face Time and did not have the opportunity to meet my doctor(s) in person until surgery day. They fully accommodated my schedule and the limitations associated with my geographical distance from them. Dr(s) Kryger… you rock and I intend to shout it from the (virtual) mountain tops! Thank you so much for the hard work you put in on this mother of 4's run down body!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

25 Years Old Tuberous Breast Augmentation and Lift

He told me that I didn't necessarily need to get a lift to correct my tuberous breasts because they were mild. Last minute before I hit the table I decided on a lift. I am happy with the overall shape and from my research I am confident in the look and overall shape my breasts will take after the swelling goes down and the implants begin to drop. For now I am very uncomfortable and a little worried about the degree of swelling on the right breast. Should I be concerned about that?

Mom of Twins Needing a Tummy Tuck - Chicago, IL

Dr. Kryger was a senior resident when I had my tummy tuck at the resident clinic at Northwestern University. He did an amazing job and years later, I still love the results!!
