5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Very Thorough, Great Bedside Manner, Excellent Results - Latham, NY

I was referred to Dr K by a friend who had a breast augmentation and raved about him. I too had a wonderful experience with him. He was very thorough and I felt like he spent a lot of time with me to make sure I got the result I wanted. I am very pleased with everything from the office staff, the wait times (barely any), his bedside manner, and of course with the results of the procedure itself. I would (and already have!) receommend him to anyone!

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

The Me I Always Wanted - Latham, NY

After years of hard work to loose weight, and 2 children, I began to think about the surgical improvements, I could make to enhance my look. After consulting with Dr K, I opted to have a breast lift, abdominoplasty, and theigh lift. I met with Dr K several times prior to making my decision, and realistic goals were discussed, along with my fears and expectations. Dr K is detail oriented without loosing his bedside manor. I felt like he always kept my feelings and goals forefront. Pain control during my recovery was never an issue. Appointments are made and kept with ease. His office waiting area feels like a spa, his staff are as professional, helful, friendly as he, and usual wait time for my appointments have been less than 5 minutes. I have recommended Dr K to family, friends, co-workers, and now RealSelf. This is The Me I always wanted!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

I Cant Say Enough - Latham, NY

I am a 2X survivor of Breast Cancer. I have been through about 16 operations. I have been to several general surgerns and a couple plastic surgens. I was at the point of being refered to surgerns by friends and no one would touch me. I went on line and found K Plastic Surgery. Dr. Kayastha had his staff with him in pictures. I liked that. It was not all about him. I am a firm believer that you are only as good as your staff and let me tell you they are the best. The reason behind that is because Dr. Kayastha is the best. He tells the truth on what he can or can not do. He gets help if he needs it. He takes his time making decisions. Now he has put me back together and fixed the past mistakes of others. I can start feeling whole again. I am not a vain person but cancer takes alot from you. I did not want it to take my self confindance too. I am so greatful that I found K Plastic Surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Very Pleased - Latham, NY

Dr.kay was recommended to me by a friend who also had a breast reduction. He was very detail oriented while going over risks and how surgery would be performed. He was very informative and his bedside manners were great as well. I will be glad to recommend him to others, and keep him in my future plans.

5 out of 5 stars Skin Tightening

Great Bedside Manner! - Latham, NY

Dr. Kayastha repaired a hernia and removed 8lbs of skin after I lost 230 lbs from the Gastric Bypass. He did an outstanding job! He has a very caring bedside manner. Of course with any surgery there is going to be pain. He was very diligent managing it and making sure I was comfortable. It took me about a week to get moving again. I had an allergic reaction to the internal stitches but again he was quick to diagnose and repair the problem. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Doctor "Feel Good"

Dr. K, as I affectionately call him, is amazingly talented in addressing my complex facial needs. And I speak from experience having been treated by more than seven MDs in two states over the past nine years. I have been a patient of his since 2014, and I trust no other doctor to treat me. Dr. K is meticulous, honest, fair and compassionate; his skills are incomparable. When I leave his...

incredible doctor

Dr. Kayastha was great. I got liposculpt done and he was nothing but professional, kind, efficient, and had a great aesthetic. He set realistic expectations and explained the procedure clearly early on in the consultation. Day of the procedure he made everything go painlessly and recovery time was fast. His staff also did a great job scheduling followup appointments. Overall such an amazing...
