The Best In The Industry
From the first consult Dr. Decherd and his staff gave me the assurance that I was in the right place and answered every question I could think of before and after my surgery. I had a tummy tuck which included muscle repair as well as some lipo to the flanks. My scar is super low, barely noticeable, and my belly button looks like I was born with it! My breast lift with implants look amazing and feel like my own. I couldn’t be more satisfied with my results! I would definitely return in the future should I like more work done. Overall, this was the bast experience and I am extremely happy with my new body! I only regret not doing it sooner!

Dr Decherd is honest, to the point and one of the top Surgeons in San Antonio. I was referred by a friend and I continue to refer my friends. His work is done so well, unless you tell someone…they just think your improvement in appearance is due to getting good sleep, healthy eating and a good skin care routine! Natural- not plastic outcome!!! He will not upsell you - only recommends what you truly can benefit from. Also, he doesn’t charge for consultations like many Surgeons who are just out to make a quick buck. You won’t be disappointed.

I highly recommend this doctor for anyone looking to get a picture-perfect tummy! My tummy tuck came out amazing. Dr. Decherd and his staff were super flexible and accommodating to me. They made an exception for a surgery date for me, which may not always be possible, but they were willing to try. I will forever be appreciative of how cautious he was in making sure I was in tip-top shape before surgery. I was ready to rush to get on the operating table but thankfully he put my health first and created a plan of action so we could get me to my finish line as safe as possible. I am truly appreciative of his approach to making sure I was healthy enough FIRST. He is an amazing doctor and artist! My results are awesome! Summer 2021 here we come! Thank you so much to all of the lovely ladies that support Dr. Decherd as well! The whole team is 10 out of 10! Book with Dr. Decherd if you haven't, it will be worth it!

Dr.Decherd and his staff are amazing! After having my two children, breastfeeding both of them, then losing over 50lbs it definitely took a toll on my body. I contacted The office for a mommy makeover and my results are phenomenal! Thank you for the most amazing care and kindness. Highly recommended!

Had a tummy tuck with lipo to the flanks. Dr. Decherd's staff is amazing! They were friendly and answered all my questions before and after surgery. Dr. Decherd himself created a masterpiece! I could not be happier with my results. I did find it interesting that he takes a very "back to basics" approach as far as prepping and healing from surgery. There were no pre-surgery labs done. In fact, I only met with him one time prior to surgery and that was at my consultation 2 months before the procedure. But, I called about a week before I went under and they answered all my questions/concerns about the upcoming surgery. As far as recovery, there were no supplements/massages/special binders recommended either. Basically, just wear a compression garment for 6 weeks and that was it. I am now 10 weeks post op and just had my final meeting with him. Everything looks amazing and has healed beautifully!

Dr. Decherd is a fabulous, no-nonsense surgeon. He will straight up tell you what will work, what won't work, while addressing all of your questions and concerns. There are no marketing gimmicks here! His surgical technique is superb and his staff go above and beyond to accommodate personal or individual needs. I would hands down recommend him to anyone looking for an honest consult whether to help slow the aging process, yet still look natural or a complete body transformation. Dr. D is your guy and his results speak for themselves... they are impressive!

For years I have been wanting a breast augmentation so I researched some of the top surgeons in the San Antonio and Austin area. Good beside manner is an important contributing factor for me in choosing a surgeon. Dr. Decherd was friendly, attentive and engaging on a personal level. Many times physicians must hop from one patient to the next and it can feel as though you're being rushed in your visit. I feel like Dr. Decherd and his staff provided great individualized care and courteous bedside manner. An elective surgery is a big decision and I wanted to feel comfortable with my surgeon and his staff. On the day of surgery I was quite nervous but eager to finally get my breast augmentation. The Anesthesiologist, nurses, surgical technician and of course Dr. Decherd did a wonderful job in my surgery! Recovery was a breeze and I love my results!

Let me just start by saying I LOVE my results! I'm 12 weeks Post Op, I had a tummy tuck with muscle repair and lipo. I literally teared up when I saw my stomach for the first time. I don't 'feel' pregnant anymore, my belly button looks natural and I still can't believe how flat my stomach is!  The staff and nurses are caring and helpful.  I never felt rushed, he took the time to listen & answer all my questions.  Dr. Decherd has EXCEEDED my expectations. I have mentioned him to everyone I know that is considering a tummy tuck!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR.DECHERD!
