5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

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

I am booked for a full tummy tuck with lipo and I am replacing my 10 year old size C breast implants with D cups and having my aureolas made smaller. I scoured the internet for local surgeons and liked this doctor's credentials. Also, this practice is the only one that offers a free consultation. My previous surgeries were in Southern CA where pretty much all of the consults are free. I...

Breast Reduction from an E to a C, Healing Great 13 Days Later - Thousand Oaks, CA

I had a breast reduction and Blepharoplasty on 12/31/2014. I chose that day to have at least 5 days before I had to work with clients on the phone.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Breast Cancer Patient - Thousand Oaks, CA

Dr.Zol and Gil Kryger are very informative, helpful and reassuring. I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer in 2012. I was referred to them by my Oncology Surgeon and had a Bilateral Mastectomy. Dr. Kryger came in to do immediate reconstruction after the mastectomy. When I was finally cleared of Cancer and ready for my reconstruction, these doctors gave me the best results I could possibly...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

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!! I only wish he was there now to do the breast augmentation I am considering now, that I should have done there. I'm so pleased with the results, I might just make a trip out to LA to finish my mommy makeover. I had...

5 out of 5 stars Panniculectomy

Massive Incisional Hernia Repair - Thousand Oaks, CA

Hmm…. how do i effectively convey the significance of a life changing experience? One moment I was picking up my sons tux for prom night, and the next I found myself undergoing lifesaving emergency abdominal surgery, that left me gutted like a fish with and sporting a colostomy bag. The reversal of that procedure left me with an inch wide, thick ugly scar from breast bone to pubic bone. ...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Double Mastectomy and DIEP Flap Reconstruction - Thousand Oaks, CA

Initially went to Dr Zol Kryger for a breast reduction surgery. At my one week follow up appointment, I was told that my pathology reports came back showing that I have LCIS. This is a marker for breast cancer. Dr Zol explained to me exactly what this was and clearly outlined what my options were. After doing some research and talking to my husband, we decided to do a double mastectomy...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Highly Recommend Zol and Gil Kryger for Any Plastic Surgery. They Were Wonderful - Thousand Oaks, CA

Pros were great! The reason they were great is that there is no voice mail when you call the doctors after hours. You reach Dr. Kryger, not their answering service. The outcome is better then I ever thought. If you want the best, you need to go to the best! it doesn't mean you have to go to Beverly Hills to get it. You want the best for yourself and the best outcome you could ever want then...

For years I had difficulty breathing due to a deviated septum. I also had a hump on my nose that I was self conscious of for years. I wanted it gone but still wanted to look like myself.
