Dr. Rucker is a excellent Dr.. After working in the medical field as a nurse,I wanted the best Dr. I could find to do my procedure. I am 68 years old and continue to work,I wanted to look the best I could. Do not hesitate to have plastic surgery because you think you are to old!!, I have taken care of people, all my years of working as a nurse. It was my time to take care of me. I had a neck and cheek lift. I love the results.Do not hesitate to have a consultation with Dr.Rucker. Its your turn

I had a breast augmentation and tummy tuck by Dr. Rucker 4 months ago. I truly could not be happier with my results. I had an idea in my mind of how I was hoping it would turn out and honestly, I think I look better than I had imagined. My stomach is so flat now and my breasts are full and beautiful. I feel like I'm the best version of me now. Thank you Dr. Rucker.

I had a breast augmentation 4 months ago and I'm overwhelmingly pleased with my results! I just had my 4 month follow up and actually hugged Dr. Rucker! I had nice breasts before children but after breastfeeding 3 kids I was left with empty, saggy, deflated skin. Now they look better than ever! He is very kind and was so helpful in deciding size and shape! Dr. Rucker was highly recommended to me and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering plastic surgery!
I chose Dr. Rucker for my breast augmentation based on a few factors- location, price and years of experience. From the initial consultation which I was rushed through with to the final post surgery check up not once did I feel like I was a truly important patient. I was told I could decide the day of surgery what size I would end up with. Well, as it turns out that is not true. The day of surgery all they had was 440 cc's. I asked about 500's she said "No we don't even have those here today".

Dr. Rucker did my surgery 25 years ago. He did an outstanding job. People are shocked when they learn I have implants. I am returning to have smaller ones put in since I am older. He is very qualified and I'm sure after the added experience that I will be just as satisfied this time around.

Dr. Rucker is a wonderful surgeon. He was very professional and explained the entire procedure with my husband and myself. His staff was also very professional. I had a breast reduction last year and now just recently had another procedure done. I recommended 2 family members to him in the past few months and they were most satisfied with Dr. Rucker as I.
