Expectations were clearly communicated. Post recovery was minimal and I am happy with how my physical appearance looks.

My boobs look better than they did pre-babies, even after breast feeding 3 babies!! They had full sensation after 24 hours which was my biggest fear!

Wonderful experience all around. Dr. Koehler and his staff are professional but also extremely friendly, easy to speak with overall I could not recommend them more.

Breast Implant Removal

I waited quite a bit before my appointment, but it wasn’t terrible. 30-40 minutes.

Mommy Makeover

I was very pleased with the level of explanation of the procedures I am wanting to get done. Dr. Koehler to his time with me and made sure I had a good understanding of what to expect come surgery. He did not push any additional procedures and recommended breaking my surgery up into two for best results. I am having a breast reduction with a lift and wanted implants along with a tummy tuck. Dr. Koehler recommended waiting on the implants, because I may like the results without. He also explained that if I still decided to move forward with the implants after it would ensure better results. You can tell that Dr. Koehler cares more about the patient and final result, then he does the money. I am looking forward to and feel confident in my choice to have my work done with him.

I'M IN LOVE WITH MY BOOBS!!!! I finally have the breasts I've been praying for since I was 20 years old and I'm 34. Not only am I happy with the results I absolutely love the staff. They were professional and real attentive. If I had a question they answered as soon as they possibly could. The Dr. Koehler was professional and straight to the point. No beating around the bust and he genuinely cares. [Single best thing is...] If I had to say one thing it would be the staff.
