1 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Terrible breast augmentation.

I'd like to start by saying the staff is amazing. Very professional, and friendly, and will do what THEY can to help. Now for Dr. Kreithen.... I had my surgery Dec 2016, and I wish I never did. I agreed on 375 CC's to be put in and that was pushing the limit for me.. I just wanted a bit bigger, a C cup size breast. I woke up to him telling me he put 400 CC's in there "to give me cleavage".....

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Best in the Business

Dr. Kreithen is a fantastic doctor. After extensive research and multiple consultations with surgeons far and wide, I felt that Dr. Kreithen's expertise and understanding my goal was most fit with my expectations. My breast lift results are incredible. I trust Dr. Kreithen and his team emplicitly and encourage all who are considering cosmetic surgery to treat yourself to the best in the business.

1 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Warning!! Do not go to Dr. Kreithen

Warning!!! Do not go to Dr. Kteithen. I went to him to get a breast lift and he did an absolutely bad plastic surgery job. When he came out from surgery, he told my family that it was an easy surgery. After the second day I came back complaining that my surgery didn't look right. I asked for an anchor shape incision and he gave me an amateur, unprofessional incision that looks horrible.( not...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Always a WONDERFUL experience!!

I love Dr. Kreithen and his staff so much that I have continually seen him for all my cosmetic needs as a Model for the past 4 years since I met him. I first saw him for a breast augmentation and I was very happy with what a beautiful job he did. I had zero complications, and everything turned out perfect. At that time I was very conservative and I wanted my implants to look as natural as...

5 out of 5 stars Mini Tummy Tuck

Life-changing

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

Very pleased

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

Excellent experience - 5 Stars

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

50 Y/o, 166 Lbs, 55 Lb Weight Loss - Sarasota, FL

My PS Dr Kreithen is talented and his office has been incredibly supportive, sharing my desire for the best possible outcome. Extra care was taken to insure infection prevention and proper recovery. The office provided me with pre and post-op vitamins and minerals in a suppliment program to begin a week before and take for 3 weeks after. The procedure is expensive with this physician, however it includes an overnight hospital stay and it is truly comprehensive, including scar treatment products.

1 out of 5 stars Cellulaze

59 Years Old - Sarasota, FL

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

Cellfina is Amazing! - Sarasota, FL

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.
