Ready for a New Body!

Hi RS, I've been "lurking" for a while now and after looking at countless reviews, photos, and results I've decided who/where my best option is... on to the DR I go! Ok, here's the "Tea" on me, get a cup... I'm pouring it up :) I'm 26 years young, 5'6' and about 210lbs (I do plan to lose, eating healthy and working out now) I have NO kids, I work and go to school both full time (please let...

A great doc and human being

I'm so sad to hear of Dr. Cochran's passing. He was a special person and I feel so lucky to have received surgery from him. I'm forever greatful for the experience and the beautiful results. Prayers to his family and staff.

He hugged me the day I met him!

I will never forget my experience with Dr. Cochran. We went to Georgia from NY to meet him. He walked into the room with scrubs and cowboy boots. With an old southern charm he said, "I heard y'all drove all the way down from NYC to meet me. Come give me a hug!" In my 36 yrs of life, I've never been hugged by any of my doctors, needless to say, by one I just met. I was hoping to have saved...

Changed my life

Dr. Cochran changed my life 5 years ago when he performed my tummy tuck. He made sure I was happy with my results. He was really a cool dude...always reaking of caffeine and conversation. R.I.P. Dr. Cochran.

RIP Dr C

My experience from the consultation for a mommy makeover to my 3 month post op appt was everything that I hoped to expect and more. Me and my daughters liked Dr C a lot. He was engaging, kind, caring and answered all our questions. I got AMAZING results and I will be forever grateful. God bless his family.

Getting my beach body back! - Columbus, GA

TUMMY TUCK WITH LIPO SCHEDULED !!!! I received my packet in the mail this week, I'm excited and nervous! 5'2, 157lbs, 2 C-Sections. I'm very nervous about the IV Sedation instead of general anesthesia. I don't want to wake up during surgery! I have several months to get in the right mind frame to conquer this! I need to pick out a suitable hotel since I will be traveling from NC.

Finally Decided to Do Something for Me!

I absolutely loved Dr Cochran and his staff. They were very reassuring and informative during my consultation. He said I was a perfect candidate for a tummy tuck. The deposit and booking process is so convenient. I can't wait until my procedure. Dr. Cochran and his office staff were very informative and reassuring. He explained the procedure and advised that I was a good candidate but also urged that it was not a license to go St whatever and no longer workout. I appreciated the candor. The booking process was very easy. Looking forward to my surgery date!
