Breast Reconstruction

EVERYONE I interacted with was kind, professional and helpful! Dr. Bucky is a true expert in his field.

Eyelid Surgery

I've contemplated 'doing something' about my aging face for the last 4 years. I'm 65. I had a facelift approximately 10 years ago and ended up looking like the joker. From the first phone call to Dr. Bucky's office I knew he was the doctor for me. His staff is WONDERFUL and Dr. Bucky is more concerned with his patients happiness than dollar signs. He actually told me one of the procedures I requested wasn't necessary. Go figure! 2 months after my facelift, eye lid surgery, brow lift, and fat grafting I attended a wedding and saw myself for the first time in pictures. I was floored by the difference. I actually feel as though I look beautiful and confident. Putting on eye make up is actually fun now too! No more hooded eyes and crepey skin to deal with.

Breast Lift

Dr. Bucky is wonderful and Erin has been a delight. She has been very helpful throughout the entire process.

Breast Augmentation

Cosmetic surgery is nerve racking to begin with. But literally every single person in the office is warm and inviting and makes you feel comfortable. I was terribly late for my appt and the staff treated me with kindness like it was no inconvenience. I felt at ease with Dr. Bucky. He took time to explain everything he was doing and why, and listened to my concerns and end goal. At no point did I feel rushed or like I was just another patient.

Mommy Makeover

Everything is always amazing, I just adore everyone and am so thankful for Dr. Bucky!

Face Lift

It was a good conversation. Dr. Bucky and his team were very thorough with regards to the upcoming procedure.

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Bucky is fabulous - great bedside manner, and the results of my procedures is fabulous.

Eyelid Surgery

good results

Eyelid Surgery

Every person from my initial phone call through to my in person appointments and then walking out the door was a happy positive experience. Each member of the staff was kind, friendly, professional, and made me feel welcome. And to top it all off, based on the information provided to me and how the appointments were handled, any concerns or fears that I had were calmed and I felt like I was in the best care possible. Being surrounded by the atmosphere and the two offices that I visited, there was no question that I wanted my procedures handled through your services.

Face Lift

Dr. Bucky explains procedures clearly, inspiring trust and confidence. He is highly experienced and works to create a comfortable environment for patients.

Liposuction

Staff are great, hospital staff are great also, Doctor and financial staff excellent, and my surgery results after my 3 moth post-op, Increíble!!!

Breast Implant Removal

From the beginning of this journey through my recovery, Dr. Bucky and his staff were remarkable. After 26 years of pain and discomfort, I decided to have my saline implants removed. My first encounter with Dr. Bucky was through a Zoom meeting, during a pandemic. As quickly as I wanted to have this done, given the circumstances, I had no expectations that this would happen in 2020. Dr. Bucky and his staff worked diligently to ensure that this procedure would happen in 2020 and it would happen safely. After meeting in person and mapping out a game plan, I felt overly confident that I was in the best hands. My surgery was scheduled for July 2020. Recovery went smoothly, little to no pain. I couldn't be more happier with my results. My entire experience with Dr. Bucky and his staff was amazing. The friendliness and care that I received (especially during a pandemic, where everyone was trying to navigate through uncharted territory) felt like I was Dr. Bucky's only patient and that his entire focus was on my procedure and my recovery process. After not having a good experience the first time around (different surgeon), not feeling confident in having them replaced, fear of having another bad experience; Dr. Bucky eased my fears, explained how things would be different this time and what to expect. I felt very safe and secure and confident that this was where I needed to be.

Face Lift

Staff always pleasant, got me in quick.

Follow-up

Logistically, I was in and out with minimal waiting. The conversation with Bucky was on point with a follow-up to address my concern. He listened and addressed it.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Bucky was very pleasant and understood exactly what I was hoping to achieve. I am happy so far with the outcome

Face Lift

Dr. Bucky spent a good amount of time speaking with me about my future procedures and I didn’t feel rushed at all. He is very personable and he was very detailed on what his plan is for me. I feel comfortable moving forward with him. I’m excited!

Liposuction

Very welcoming and comforting staff.

Breast Implant Removal

The staff is very professional. The communication over any concerns is immediate. Dr. Bucky is the best on every level. Results were far better than I expected!!!

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Bucky is easy to talk to and explained everything so that I had a clear understanding of what to expect.

Face Lift

I had a face lift Frim a doctor on my area approximately 10 years ago and ended up looking like I had been in a wind tunnel. I researched outside of my area this time and found Dr. Bucky. He is a true artist. I’m less than 2 weeks out from surgery but can already tell I’m going to be thrilled with the results. He was wonderful to work with and even refused to do one procedure I thought I wanted because he said I didn’t need it. He’s not finished with me either. His aftercare procedures ensure I have the best result possible. I already have 3 friends that want to go to him because of my experience and results.
