Dr Beckenstein preformed a tummy tuck and left breast fat transfer on me and I have never felt better in my life. I look good and have confidence again that I haven't had since I was in my teens and early 20's. He and his staff were so kind and caring. They answered all my questions helped me to feel comfortable about everything that was going to take place. I never had to worry about anything. They even provided me with post surgery scar care instructions and medicine. Dr B is the best there is

I could not possibly be happier. I had to have a double mastectomy and reconstruction. From the first call to the office, everyone was kind, helpful, and professional. Dr. Beckenstein and his staff are excellent at communication. The doctor himself even called on the weekend to check on me. I was so afraid, but the moment we arrived at the office and saw the calm, soothing environment, we knew we'd arrived at the right place. I'm very pleased with the final cosmetic result. Can't go wrong here.

Dr. Beckenstein is one of the best physicians I have ever worked with. He truly cared about me from the very start of my treatment until the end of my time with him. If I ever need any type of reconstruction or plastic surgery completed again I will use him and I highly recommend him to everyone.
