Tummy Tuck

Dr. Koehler and his staff was Amazing. They treated me with the most hospitality and I received the most Outstanding resorts. My Tummy Tuck is amazing and I have my pre-pregnancy body back thanks to him.

Breast Augmentation

Friendly staff. All my questions were answered in a timely manner. Very happy with my surgery results and healing time.

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Koehler took the time to listen to my wants and needs and addressed each of them. In my experience prior to Dr. Koehler, most surgeons will do about anything you'll pay for. Not the case here. He explained what he thought I should do and what I shouldn't do. The pros and cons of each possible procedure. After my consultation, I will be having some things done, but not all that I thought I wanted. I came out of the appointment feeling good about myself.

The environment was very private and nice. Every staff member I encountered was polite and delightful. Dr. Koehler was direct and informative.

Breast Augmentation

My surgery was a great experience and I did not have any issues throughout the process. Dr. Koehler has a lot of knowledge and experience, which was reflected at the consultation. Everyone was patient and caring prior to, and after, my surgery. I am very pleased with my results and overall experience. After years of research, Dr. Koehler was the top choice as a surgeon.

Tummy Tuck

First off I would like to start with Thank You Dr. Koehler and staff for the amazing work you did!!!! This entire office made you feel so comfortable and welcomed from the very first appointment. They went above and beyond to answer any concerns or questions that may have came up before and after my procedure. The facility is beautiful and clean. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. This area is very fortunate to have such a skilled cosmetics surgeon as Dr. Koehler. His work is supreme and I would hands down recommend him to anyone that is looking to have the most high quality of work done.


The staff and Dr. were extremely patient with me, and were super helpful before and after my surgery. I felt very cared for. Before my surgery, the staff walked me through what to expect and even waited on me while I was struggling to give a urine sample - I didn’t feel rushed or stressed. They even played my favorite song in the room before I was out and we’re very gentle with me after I woke up!

Everyone was extremely helpful professional and knowledgeable. The entire staff made me feel completely comfortable. Dr. Koehler is the best.

Breast Implant Revision

The process from beginning to end was handled very professionally and with a truly detailed and caring staff. I appreciated how Dr. Kohler and the staff extended the same concern to my friend who accompanied me with updates and instructions pre and post surgery. I felt monitored well just as much after surgery as I did before. The anesthesiologist was excellent with explanation and comforting me in pre-op holding area given the fact that I began to experience anxiety. Dr. Kohler guided me through some post operation questions over the phone and that really counts surpassing text communications in the present.
