5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

25 Year Old Male - Neck Lift, Chin Implant & Buccal Fat Reduction - Worcester, MA

Motivation: After years of weight loss attempts, nothing was helping the genetics behind my jowls, or extra chins, or my weak chin. My "features" were pointed out daily by family, friends, coworkers, and even strangers I just met. I contacted Dr. Fechner's office and they were extremely friendly and scheduled my appointment immediately. Pre-Op: Dr. Fechner provides ample paperwork to...

28 Female, Rhinoplasty. Worcester, MA

2 years later I'm writing a review, and should've done it sooner ! I was looking in the mirror and 2 years later my profile looks absolutely amazing. For the longest I had a hooked nose and Dr Fechner did a fabulous job! The day before the surgery he called me to ensure me everything will be fine. He specializes in the face so he was perfect for my nose surgery. I recommend him to everyone!

24 year old. So happy with results! Worcester, MA

So I have always wanted a "cuter" nose. Everybody told me I was crazy and didn't need a nose job but it's just something that has bothered me since I was young. So from the beginning, I wanted something very subtle done. I wanted a slight hump removed and the tip and columella refined. From the beginning I felt extremely comfortable with Dr. Fechner. I had done a lot of research prior so I was...

Great Decision - Worcester, MA

Hello, I am a 22 year old male who got into an accident and was not only left with two broken arms but also with a broken nose that changed the way my "old" nose looked like and needed surgery a few months after my accident. It was a little cricked and had a bump/hump on the top/bridge of my nose. After I had the surgery Dr. Fetchner made my nose back to the original or if not...

amazing, happy, perfect - Worcester, MA

I had a rhinoplast at Dr.Fechners office in Worcester, and from the moment I walked into the office for my consultation I knew this was who I wanted to perform my surgery. I had always been concerned with the size and large bump in the middle of my nose, and also had many sinus and breathing problems due to a deviated septum. Dr.Fechner was able to fix all of these issues without making my new...

44 Yr Old Trying to Turn Back the Hands of Time. Worcester, MA

I was beginning to feel discouraged about my aging face. At 40 I started using botox and juvederm, I've also had voluma in my cheeks, IPL for my age spots, emerge laser and pellevee hoping for skin tightening. I've been been very overweight for several years and have been eating well and exercising and losing weight. I am hoping Ultherapy will tighten my saggy face and jowls while the...

Extraordinary Results with Septorhinoplasty - Worcester, MA

I highly recommend Dr. Fechner. I had a septorhinoplasty including osteotomies. My nose was deviated with a few fractures, excessive width and nasal collapse. I was apprehensive about having the procedure under twilight anesthesia, but decided to do so because it was the doctor's preference. I was aware when he was performing the osteotomies, but it was not painful. I am glad I proceeded under...
