Extremely impressed with every aspect of Dr. Buckingham and his surgery center, especially his skill, those he employs and the kindness and professionalism shown to me during every interaction.

I was given a referral for Dr. Buckingham by my husband’s dermatologist, who said only wonderful things about him as a skilled surgeon. I was told Dr. Buckingham is the best around and I saw that for myself during my consultation. After doing a lot of online research, going through Dr. Buckingham’s education and qualifications, I expected that the doctor would have the skills to make my look more refreshed. Dr. Buckingham has well-defined, efficient office and everyone knows their job. I had my

I had a lipo transfer and TCA Peel on January 9th. This was a great experience and provided the results I was hoping for. Dr. Buckingham is considered the best in Austin, especially for any procedure involving the face, so I knew he would be the surgeon for me. Age had caught up with me, so I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Buckingham last year. He was so professional and gentle. In less than three weeks, I was already back to going out in public. Today, my face feels smooth and looks fresh. F

I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Buckingham last May for my neck lift. I interviewed so many doctors, but Dr. Buckingham really gave me confidence to move forward. Dr. Buckingham is a specialists in every since of the word, and because he works only faces, my dermatologist mentioned him as one of the area's best. He let me know that nothing was too much and that he could make my desires a reality. I understand the neck is very hard to correct, but it is such an aging area that I was determ

René does my Botox and fillers and she is amazing! I always leave their office so happy and looking great!
I had a blepharoplasty to remove festoons, like fat pockets under my eyes. Dr. Buckingham was very pleasant to work with, and extremely up front. The festoons were quite significant. I am very happy with the fact that I can now focus on making up my entire face, not spending time trying to cover under my eyes.
I had a lower facelift at Dr. Buckingham’s office. I did not want to have the wind tunnel effect. It has been three months and so far, I’m very happy. We saw immediate results. I am especially happy with the neck. My stitches have healed well. I went right back to doing my routine activities. I have actually started carrying Dr. Buckingham’s card and handing it out. It was a great experience.

In August, Dr. Buckingham performed my blepharoplasty and lower facelift. He is a talented physician and my whole experience with Dr. Buckingham was absolutely wonderful. He came highly recommended by three or four of my friends, when they found out I was interested in having a procedure. Dr. Buckingham did a great job; my before and after pictures tell it all. Now, I feel amazing, younger, and more beautiful. I would recommend Dr. Buckingham’s office because he is great at his job.

June of this year, I had a limited incision face lift with Dr. Buckingham. I chose him because he does faces only. This made me feel more confident about his expertise, plus with the volume of cases he has done, Dr. Buckingham was just what I was looking for. He is a great surgeon and I knew he could make my results look very natural. It was an overall excellent experience, from start to finish. Afterward, the staff and Dr. Buckingham called to check up on me.

I have seen Dr. Buckingham for a lower facelift, chemical peel, and a fat transfer. These were in February, because several friends of mine had already come to him for procedures. Everyone was very happy with Dr. Buckingham. I knew I wanted some of the skin under my chin lifted, so that I could look fresher and a bit younger. I am real pleased with the results. Everything was really easy, just like Dr. Buckingham told me. There were no problems.

My rhinoplasty has exceeded my expectations. Dr. Buckingham is very attentive and I feel like he was very skilled, as well. I had no swelling compared to other people I have known to go through the same procedure. Dr. Buckingham?s office pretty much catered to me, and I was in absolutely no pain throughout the whole process. I will recommend Dr. Buckingham to anybody. My rhinoplasty results are perfect: very natural and conservative.

Dr. Buckingham did a very professional job placing fat injections around my eyes. I have rheumatoid arthritis and often I feel tired. I didn?t like looking in the mirror and seeing how tired I looked. It was the disease that really prompted me to try to have a more youthful appearance. My procedure went well. Dr. Buckingham explained everything very well.

In September, Dr. Buckingham performed my Necklift. I am 65, so I really needed it. My general practioners recommended him. He was very kind. Dr. Buckingham also takes his time with his patients. He is not in a hurry, making you feel at ease. I am extremely happy with my results, I think I look a lot younger. The staff here is wonderful. This was a very good experience.
