Breast Reduction

He explained what the outcome would be. Was nervous about the recovery process but not so much anymore

Body Lift

Amazing work! Better than expected. I felt at ease with the doctor.

Breast Augmentation

Efficient. Nice facility. Friendly and accommodating.

Brazilian Butt Lift

I am so happy with my results! Dr. Koehler has a true talent for body contouring!! He understood exactly what I wanted and delivered perfection! I love my new body after liposuction with fat transfer (to my butt) and new breast implants too! The nursing staff at ESCS are ALL top notch, which complement an incredible surgeon! Thank you all!!

Breast Lift

The procedure was easy, quick, and pretty painless. I appreciated having access to an app that let me contact my doctors. Besides the harsh scaring, everything else is going great. The best thing about the experience was how quick and painless the surgery was. It felt like in and out, no pain whatsoever.

Breast Implant Revision

Every step of the process was wonderful! He is a kind and comforting surgeon and his entire staff was amazing! More healthful feeling and more confidence.

Breast Implant Revision

From initial phone call to set up consultation to the follow-up appointments was amazing and professional. The website had so many reviews, by the way, all the reviews were positive. The consultation visit was professional but made me very comfortable. Dr. Koehler was honest and open with me about what I expected after surgery. He did say I would have a good outcome and I got the results I wanted. The entire staff, esp the peri-operative team, were amazing (I have been an OR nurse for over 30+ yrs so that says a lot). I was very impressed with everything. The entire staff works together and the atmosphere is welcoming. Can't say enough good things. I got the results I wanted, actually better than I expected.

Breast Lift

Entire experience was wonderful. Every time I go to Dr. K’s office, I wish I worked there. Great team! And what he did for me is just amazing. My confidence has greatly improved. Because of asymmetry, I’ve spent my whole life (50+ years) hiding behind jackets and padded bras.

Breast Lift

I had an all around great experience and plan on returning. Helped to improve my self confidence.


Dr. Koehler and his office staff are always pleasant and willing to help with any concern I have. My results are even better than I expected and would definitely recommend them to anyone!

Breast Implant Revision

So much good to say about this practice from the moment I called, consult, pre-op, post-op, follow-up. The friendliness of the staff, the bedside manner of Dr. Koehler and the results and outcome of my breast revision surgery. I will definitely use this practice for all of my forthcoming cosmetic needs. Very happy to make the drive from Mobile for the stellar services I receive at Eastern Shore Cosmetic.

Breast Augmentation

Every employee along the way was wonderful. Dr Koehler listened to my goals and specifics about the look I wanted to achieve and delivered said results in a professional and pleasant way. [Single best thing is...] I feel more like myself. I feel more comfortable in my own clothing and my own skin. I feel like I can buy clothing because I like it, and not be restricted by what a push up bra allowed me to wear.
