5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

A few millimeters made a major difference in my profile

I visited Dr Fechner back in 2013 for liposuction underneath my chin. After examining me, he explained that my issue was not really the fat under my chin, but the way my muscles were attached underneath my chin. With this information, I opted for an isolated neck lift to improve my profile. I was only 34 at the time, and I didn't expect to need a neck lift at such a young age, but I'm really...

I'm on day 2 of my restylane treatment and so far so good. Yesterday after I got the filler my nose felt sore and was a little swollen. I drove home from Dr. Fechners office feeling good about my decision. I decided to go to Dr. Fechner because his positive reviews. I felt welcomed and important in his office. The doctor and his staff were helpful through every situation from the paper work,...

An amazing exprrience with Dr. Fechner

Dr. Fechner is the best. I couldn't afford the rhinoplasty and he made me an awesome nose job just with the fillers. I am very happy now I get a nice straight nose without surgery and pain free. Thank you doctor.

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

Dr. Fechner was the best surgeon I met. He set my expectations appropriately and over delivered on them with the outcome of the procedures he performed. My review says it all, the care he puts into the entire process from beginning to end is very detail oriented. (A great trait for a surgeon!) The experience I had wasn't just the treatment, I really can't explain how good a surgeon he is. Nothing about what I changed makes me look unnatural. If you never met me before this, and even if you did you might notice. To me, that is what makes Dr. Fechner an excellent surgeon.

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!

72 0n 9/11 Face And Neck Drooping amost to Chest. Dr Fechner, Worcester Ma. Complete Miracle Worker, Amazing Transformation

After one visit I knew Dr. Fechner was the PS for me. He has an amazing gift for his profession. Truly artistic, He knew exactly what I needed for a great transformation and by following his suggestions I got the greatest results that I could have ever asked for. He has such a gentle touch that I never experienced any pain during my entire operation.His office is very welcoming, His entire team is fantastic including office, aesthetic and surgical. I cannot possibly give him and his team all the praise that they deserve. He is simply brilliant and a truly humble man who cares deeply for his patients and their well being. Answered all my questions clearly and completely, After surgery he is and has been very reachable and quickly responds to all my concerns ( which were few because of all the confidence that he and his team instills.) Double Board certified....very important to me. Thank you so much to him and his team for all they great care they have given me. They are all completely amazing.

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

Dr. Fechner is awesome. His whole staff is amazing. This is my first procedure ever and it couldn't have gone more smoothly. I was provided with pain medication but had no use for it! Experienced zero pain!! Seriously have not had any pain at all. My splint fell off today, the day before my appointment.. Due to me eating spicy food and it literally sweating off of my face. I called the office and informed them and the receptionist had a nurse call me back who told me to tape it back on until tomorrow. The staff here is very quick to respond to my calls and questions. Dr. Fechner even called me the day before the appointment to make sure I was in good spirits. After the procedure, a nurse called my sister (who had picked me from the office) to make sure I was settling in well. Amazing experience. I'm so so happy.
