5 out of 5 stars Mini Tummy Tuck
Dr. Kreithen- and his entire staff- went above and beyond my expectations in every aspect. From the time I picked up the phone to call to coming in for my 1 month post-op, I felt cared for and that I was in the best hands possible. I had a "reverse abdominoplasty" (basically a mini-tummy-tuck) procedure to tighten and tone up my upper abdomen. I started out in relatively good shape but I had...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I recently had a breast aug with Dr. Kreithen, and I couldn't be happier with my results! Dr. Kreithen was very responsive to my needs, he was very honest (which meant a lot to me), and his knowledge and professionalism was fantastic.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
I'm so thankful I chose Dr. Kreithen to do my breast reduction and Smart Lipo. The breast reduction was a surgery I had been contemplating for a couple of years and wanted to have due to chronic neck and back pain. Dr. Kreithen really listened to what was important to me and used his artistic and surgical skills to complete my reduction with very minimal scarring and no loss of sensation. He...
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I decided on this procedure 1 year after radically changing my life. This includes daily exercise and eating fresh foods with minimal processing and added ingredients. I lost 55 lbs and kept it off for 6 mos. My body is strong. I'm 50 and in the best shape of my life, within 15 lbs of my ideal weight. It was perfect time and I took a sabbatical from my work. I have been self-conscious...
1 out of 5 stars Cellulaze
Dr. Kreithan in Sarasota used this procedure to reduce the wrinkles around the knees. This procedure is not used for that AND does not work!!!! Don't let a Dr. talk you into this! I just received my medical records from this procedure and they are over 100 pages trying to "fix" (to no good end) what this did.
5 out of 5 stars Cellfina
I had Cellfina almost three months ago to remove my cellulite dimples on my buttocks with Dr. Joshua Kreithen. The procedure was virtually painless, I stayed awake throughout and it only took about an hour. I even went to work the next day without anyone knowing I would recommend this procedure to anyone who is bothered by those stubborn dimples.
5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
I never would have imagined I would have actually considered a breast augmentation as I have always had pretty large breasts. I am actually surprized I had the courage to do any of this! I had a breast lift and silicone implants around 300 and 320 with a donut scar around my aeriolas. I also had a mini TT to get rid of loose skin and stretch marks and smart lipo on my back shoulder blades....
1 out of 5 stars Cellulaze
Dr. Kreithen used a procedure for Cellulite to reduce wrinkles around my knees. It was very expensive ($5000) and of course it did not work. He guaranteed a 50% improvement and then did not stand behind his word! He also said that he would send a resolution to the issue back in January and I have not received any communication.
5 out of 5 stars Botox
27 Year Old Model, Looking to Raise Brows and Hide Crows Feet, Forehead Lines, and Line Between Eyes - Sarasota, FL
I have been seeing Dr. Kreithen for over 2 years now for multiple procedures. I continue to go back because he is a true artist, he is very kind and gentle, and genuinely cares about his patients' well-being and happiness. Because I am a model, I have to be sure my face is always camera ready. I have been consistently receiving Botox from Dr. Kreithen every 3-4 months to keep my face camera...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
After my initial consultation I decided to have silicone breasts implants surgery. Dr Kreithen did an excellent job! The surgery was done under IV sedation, not general anesthesia - which is so much better for you as a patient (health), easier to recover from, no pain or burning from intubation. My surgery was smooth, easy process. I woke up with no pain,. Post op I did not have any extra...
Dr. Kreithen is passionate about empowering individuals to reach their full potential by improving or restoring physical features that hinder them physically or emotionally. In 2003 and 2004 Dr. Kreithen participated in a cleft lip and palate mission with Interplast in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.
