Find a doctor who will actually give you good results and not just take your money and make excuses for a poor out come. Total wast of time, money and pain.

Dr. Brucker and his staff are absolutely amazing. I had soooo many questions as I never really saw myself as someone that would pursue plastic surgery, I hardly even wear make-up. They were so thorough with answering all my questions in a thorough laid back style. I couldn't be more impressed. He also kept my husband informed in the waiting room! He REALLY listened to the big picture of what I wanted in my tummy and breasts and sought to meet my vision for what I wanted. my highest recommendati
