Excellent communication, excellent care, excellent outcome

Other

The surgery the dr chose was accurate and I was very pleased with his recommendations I was a UNIQUE case and Dr Bucky was very knowledgable with a solution. I was more than pleased with the outcome. I may still have to undergo another surgery but am Confident with Dr Bucky and his staffs recommendation. Surgical staff was also very kind.

Breast Lift

Dr. Bucky and his staff were very attentive to my goals. I was very comfortable with the breast lift with implants and my belly button double hernia procedure. When I went into the operating room, laid down, closed my eyes - I have no idea when I went under - just remember waking up and the I was in recovery. Had very little pain and was comfortable post op. I have already recommended, the practice to others while chatting about my procedures.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Bucky’s office was great. From the initial call to my post-op appt. Everything was explained so there was no surprises. I even had take out for dinner that night!! I feel more confident in my self image which is the best feeling.

Breast Reconstruction

From the time I walked in the door I felt welcome and so comfortable. Every question was answered and put my mind at ease. All the nurses, surgeon and other staff were extremely helpful and so nice! My breast feel so much more natural. They are the perfect size for me and I feel much more comfortable with myself.

Scar Revision

Lack of empathy and dismissiveness from the doctor who spends very little time examining the situation. I always feel like a side show during appointments, as he always is bringing in another doctor during the visit. He's willing to try something else, but said "I can only promise 50% improvement" for an issue I did not have prior to first surgery.

Face Lift

It was a follow up after surgery.

Breast Lift

Face Lift

From the first phone calls with Amy to meeting Dr. Bucky and interacting to the staff, it was all amazing. Everyone goes above and beyond! Kate is super helpful and caring. The entire staff has been so welcoming and friendly! I am not embarrassed to be in pictures, my skin doesn’t hang anymore. My self confidence has grown tremendously!! I actually like looking in the mirror now!

Mommy Makeover

From Danielle at the front desk to the support during my post-op visit / Botox with Kate, Lisa, and Dr. Bucky, I felt very well taken care of. Everyone is kind, extremely knowledgeable, and professional.

Follow-up

Received a positive report on my recovery process

Breast Augmentation

I was hesitant to have plastic surgery, although it is something I have wanted for a couple of years. I was referred to Dr. Bucky by 2 friends. I am so happy with my decision to go with Dr. Bucky and to go through with the surgery. He made me feel very comfortable and was a pleasure to work with. He listened to my wants and needs and I felt like I was in great hands. His whole staff is so friendly and I felt very taken care of. I felt extremely comfortable with Dr.Bucky. He exceeded my expectations and I could not be happier.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Bucky truly is an artist. He proportioned my breast aug to truly fit ME. At prior consults, I felt as if the doctor wasn’t listening to me. He Listened. I’m so glad I chose him....my breasts are perfect! I have more confidence. I feel more ‘womanly’, and definitely more sexy!

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Bucky and his staff was very informative and and made me feel comfortable from the minute I walked in the office for my consultation. Dr. Bucky listened to me and understood what I wanted I felt very at ease talking to him. Day if surgery I felt I was in good hands and chose the right surgeon. I’ve had 2 procedures done by Dr. Bucky both times I felt highly satisfied if I ever needed any other procedures done I go back to him. The staff is kind and friendly. I lost my body at 22 years old when I had my last child, i was never comfortable with my stomach I would never wear a bathing suit without cover up, i would never undress in front of my husband or even allow him in the bathroom while I showered, I had a tummy tuck by another surgeon and I was not satisfied he didn’t listen and he got it wrong, a year later I found Dr. Bucky by searching on the web I was able to schedule an appointment and went in for my first consultation, I knew from my first meeting with him and his staff that he listened and he understood. I’m now happy to say I can wear not only a one piece, but even a modest 2 piece. My money was well spent and I am happy with my results.

Face Lift

A prior non-invasive procedure by another surgeon from a different practice to lift and tighten skin in my chin area left me with hollow, sagging jowls. My visit to Dr. Bucky turned my unfortunate situation into the most positive and rewarding outcome. His innovative use of fat grafting in the problem areas coupled with his surgical expertise to lift the lower portions of my face and neck yielded a beautiful result. I am thrilled beyond measure with my natural and youthful appearance. I’ve never received so many compliments in my life, all from friends and family who remain unaware I ever had anything done. I am so happy to have put my trust and confidence in the hands of such a competent surgeon. Thank you Dr. Bucky!
