Dr. Decherd San Antonio Plastic Surgery Insitute Dr. Decherd is super friendly and will realy put in the time pre-op/post-op to discuss everything.. I even had TWO pre-op visits just to talk to him and get me some reassurance and feel I was making a good decision. Of course there is alot of sale..that is anywhere..but I do like this place because they dont talk alot of the sale. They also dont answer alot of questions..by this I mean the ones that are variable..because each person can be different..they will teach you and discuss lots with you..but they dont waste your time by telling or agreeing to anything the could come back and later seem as fabrication. I think this is how most all Dr.s should be. The receptionist I do believe is just that, so when I get her on the phone..i caution anything she may tell me...but over all I like this place and the people (dr. Decherd) that I deal with most of the time! I think Dr. Decherd is a great Dr. to choose I felt comfortable through out my whole experience and got great results!

I looked in several doctors even look down in Mexico but once I talked to Dr. Decherd, I was sold. He seemed to really listen and spent a long time with me helping me chose the right surgery for me. His price was reasonable so I went for it. I am only on day 4, so still lots of swelling. Not much pain per se, but the discomfort is tiresome. The dr office has called me on 2 or 3 occasions just to see how I was. I am glad I chose the doctor I did.

Dr. Decherd... He is THE BEST!!!! He is outgoing, extremely knowledgable and takes the time to explain and actively listens to what you are saying! He wants you to be informed and to make informed decisions about your body and surgery...hmmm... what a great concept! Isn't that how it should be? He and his incredible team have my support and recommendation going forward!

Doctor was friendly and I am happy with the look of my breasts with implants but I hate the constant pain and accommodations I have had to make in my life. My only complaint about Dr Decherd is that he was not helpful at all when I needed help with the issues I was having. I was healthy before my implants now I have constant pain, shortness of breath, and palpitations. I can never sleep on my stomach or my left side because my heart starts acting crazy. I have been to a cardiologist, my primary care provider, have had all kinds of tests and they all come back negative. Hopefully I will return to normal when my implants are removed.

My daughter in law and my son have both used Dr. Decherd in the past. I reviewed most doctors websites in my area, and chose him based on his videos and results. It was only later than I found out he was the same doctor my son and daughter-in-law used. I had a double procedure, facelift and tummy tuck and paid a little over 15,000. Don't know how much procedures would have been individually. My doctor, Michael Decherd was so nice. What I really appreciated was how LONG he took with my initial consult. He seemed to know exactly what I wanted, and he achieved that. Also, his nurse Heather is a living doll. Office staff have been very helpful on the phone. I have more self-confidence and think I will be more confident re-entering the workplace.

I had previously had lipsuction with him and really enjoyed the attention he gave to his patients. After checking around for botox prices there was really no way i would comprimise my body for a less qualitfied technician to perform the work for me. You cant be his great prices, skill, and personality!

I found his plastic surgery institute online, and was very happy with him all the way around! Dr Decherd is a highly skilled surgeon. He is the best Dr. In my opinion. He is comfortable to be around and knows exactly What your goal is. He spends time with you. I'm needing to get Over my anxiety and plan my surgery date. When the time Comes, Dr. Decherd is the man. Pay a visit with him. Most professional and understanding Dr. I trust.
