Dr Semlacher is absolutely fantastic! He is incredibly knowledgeable, polite, professional and caring. His work is very natural looking and complimentary to your own figure. I had no bruising and minimal pain. He has a kind, gentle bedside manor and is very trustworthy. I felt he had my best interest at hand and took excellent care of me during the whole process. I highly recommend him to friends and family.

Dr. Semlacher has an amazing talent! In June 2016 I had a double mastectomy w/ reconstruction started at the same time. I ended up very unhappy w/ my results and the Dr., so I had to search for a new Dr. to complete my reconstruction. I was fortunate enough to find Dr. Semlacher & he was willing to take my case. He is honest, straight forward, confident & has great bedside manor! Not only did he make me feel beautiful again, he brought my smile back!! I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone!!

I had breast augmentation surgery in May 2016 at the Gig Harbor Multicare Facility. My initial consultation with Dr. Semlacher made the decision to proceed with him as my surgeon the obvious choice. He was very personable and thorough in explaining the procedure, his approach, my options, and the risks. Dr. Semlacher is a wonderfully talented surgeon and I couldn't be happier with the results. I am amazed at how easy surgery was due to his technique. Post-surgery follow up was very comprehensive
