“I look back and think a fairy godmother could not have picked a better surgeon for me than Dr. Rechner. He listened to all my questions and concerns and explained everything thoroughly before my surgery. I was initially hesitant with my uber curvy body type regarding what could really be accomplished but Dr. Rechner delivered truly amazing results. My after body is even better than I had dreamed was possible. Honestly, even my scar is aesthetically pleasing!! If you are contemplating a mini, full or circumferential tummy tuck please do yourself a favor and schedule a consult with Dr. Rechner. Since my surgery, the doctor and staff have been very responsive and attentive to any questions I have had during my recovery. I couldn’t be happier with this practice or this doctor.”* -Tummy Tuck Patient, Dr. Rechner
