5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

25 Year Old Female, Rhino/septoplasty. Des Moines, IA

I was very nervous when I first went to my consultation with Dr. Koch, but he was so friendly my nerves immediately went away when he walked through the door. He seemed like such a genuine person looking out for my best interest. I told him I wanted rhinoplasty to correct the bump on my nose, but I didn't want my overall appearance to change drastically. After the surgery when all the swelling went down, my nose looked great! People who didn't know that I had surgery couldn't tell I had work done, because he made my new nose look so natural. He also fixed my deviated septum and I can breathe so much better through my nose. I would definitely recommend Dr. Cody Koch for anyone looking to have facial plastic surgery.

35, Male , 1 Child, Married Electrician. West Des Moines, IA

He was kind and honest. That's what made my decision for me. He didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear. He even made a personal call the night of surgery to make sure I was doing ok.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

56 Yo with Saggy Eyelids. Des Moines, IA

Loved Dr. Koch. He wasn't pushy and wanted to make sure I had the information for me to make the right decision. His explanation about the procedure was spot on. Staff was equally great.

55 Y/o Female Facelift, Eyelids and Neck Lift. Dr. Cody is AWESOME - Des Moines, Iowa

It has been a little over a year now and I am SO thrilled with the outcome. Dr. Koch said there could be swelling for up to a year. I would say that at about the 9 month mark, everything settled in. He specializes in making you look natural and refreshed. Not all pulled tight. Believe me, I work in an office where a couple of ladies have gone wayyyyy overboard. I have talked to patients...

Eyelid Surgery and then Some for This 62 Yr. Old. West Des Moines, IA

Tired of looking tired, I began searching for a doctor to change things. Fortunately for me I found Dr. Cody Koch. He and his work was more than I hoped for. I asked his recommendation for what to do and he gave me options, made suggestions and allowed me to think about it. He was not at all pushy and after I made my decision I never looked back. He was wonderful. I am so pleased with...

Far Better Than Expected - Des Moines, IA

Dr. Koch was very professional and friendly from the very first time we met through the entire procedure. He was the third doctor I had gone to, and I used to work in the medical field so I can usually get a feel for whether a physician is competent or not. It was obvious that he was very well trained, and very capable of providing the most up to date surgical procedures that would treat my painful and embarrassing problem. The surgery was a huge success, and everything went exactly as Dr. Koch had explained. He is an extremely talented surgeon.

I couldn't be more pleased with the care I receive from Dr. Cody and his staff.
