Benjamin Rechner, MD Reviews (283)

Breast Lift

The doctor was very thorough in explaining everything that was going to be involved in the surgery and answered all my questions. I really liked that he met with me the day before surgery and and took his time making the markings on me for the next day.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Rechner gave me exactly what I asked for. I am a very small woman (5'3 110 lbs) that came in with almost no natural breast tissue at all. I wanted implants that would give me as much of a natural look as possible. Explaining this to Dr. Rechner, I was probably annoying. I insisted every time we spoke that I feared my implants being too big (or looking too ... unnaturally bulbous). Dr. Rechner and his staff assured me that he understood what I wanted. And he did! The end result is exactly what I wanted. My breasts are substantial, but they look quite natural! Not totally like I grew them, but damn close. I wore a largely-padded bra before this, and no one that I didn't TELL about the surgery has been able to tell the difference. My implants are settling in well - not too high on my chest - and they've loosened substantially. They already bounce! 10/10. I'm so happy I went to Dr. Rechner for this procedure.

Tummy Tuck

1. The office staff was very professional, polite and helpful. 2. Dr. Rechner explained everything very thoroughly and was very professional as well. 3. The cost of the procedure was very reasonable.

Breast Reduction

The Dr. was easy going and has great energy. He was believable and I trusted him. He understood my needs and was able to relate to my issues.

Tummy Tuck

The doctor gives me the confidence to know the details of results that I can expect. I am still nervous about the extent of the surgery but I know that I am in capable hands.

Breast Augmentation

The doctor explained everything thoroughly. Recovery was quick and very little pain/discomfort. The gals at the front desk are very helpful and accommodating and the RNs I met with prior to surgery to go over instructions and who were with me before going to OR were very good at their jobs- explained everything well and kept the mood light when I was nervous.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Corrections were made to my previous rhinoplasty done elsewhere and am very pleased with the results. One small adjustment to make later this year, but otherwise my breathing is significantly improved and nose looks aesthetically better as well.

Breast Implant Revision

He gave me hope that I can be fixed.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Rechner and his staff went above and beyond my expectations. I did a lot of research on where I wanted to have my breast augmentation done and I am so glad I chose to go to Centre for Plastic Surgery. They were extremely detailed and helpful from beginning stages to the very end and are still continuing to make sure I am progressing positively. [Single best thing is...] The outcome of my breast.

Breast Augmentation

The staff was so kind and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Rechner spent a good amount of time with me and explained everything I was to expect. Everyone made me feel like an important case to the practice and not just another dollar sign. Very satisfied so far and can’t wait to see the final product after surgery.

Breast Augmentation

Everyone is extremely friendly and nice. My doctor took his time explaining everything and making sure I understand 100% about the procedure. I love the fact I never felt rushed at any time.

Neck Lift

Staff was interested and knowledgeable.

Face Lift

Ben took special care not to make me look like Joan Rivers, but I do look 10 years younger. [Single best thing is...] The results are amazing. You cannot tell I had a facelift-only that I look rested and like I lost weight. I did-lost some seriously sagging skin.

Face Lift

Dr. Rechner was great. I look a lot younger and better and it makes me feel better about myself

Breast Augmentation

Everyone was very kind to me and didn't make me feel uncomfortable at all. Patient care is 100% their focus. I will only come here for anything regarding my cosmetic needs. Doctor Rechner is a absolute perfectionist and made me look and feel beautiful. Thank you for everything

Tummy Tuck Revision

It was an easier process and the healing time was much better.

Treatment / Procedure

The time spent with me by all involved with clear and detailed explanations of what would be done and what to expect afterwords. Also this was my first experience of Not feeling nauseated after a surgery! Thanks to an attentive anesthesiologist.

Tummy Tuck

I look back and think a fairy godmother could not have picked a better surgeon for me than Dr. Rechner. He listened to all my questions and concerns and explained everything thoroughly before my surgery. I was initially hesitant with my uber curvy body type regarding what could really be accomplished but Dr. Rechner delivered truly amazing results. My after body is even better than I had dreamed was possible. Honestly, even my scar is aesthetically pleasing!! If you are contemplating a mini, full or circumferential tummy tuck please do yourself a favor and schedule a consult with Dr. Rechner. Since my surgery, the doctor and staff have been very responsive and attentive to any questions I have had during my recovery. I couldn't be happier with this practice or this doctor.

Breast Lift

Dr. Rechner really listened and heard my concerns. He worked with me to help me understand what was possible and how it could be achieved. [Single best thing is...] the total commitment of everyone at the Centre for plastic surgery. From first phone call, to consult, to pre-op visit, to surgery and follow-up, was first rate.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Rechner gave me all the info I need to make an educated decision without pressure or up selling! He was kind, compassionate, and straight forward. My expectations were addressed and clarified and I feel well prepared for my procedure.
