Excellent doctor, I can not recommend Dr. Rechner enough, he was trustworthy and professional. Great nurses and facilities, AND fabulous results. I could not have been happier with the whole experience.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I researched my procedures and consulted with seven area doctors for nearly a year before choosing Dr. Rechner. I chose Dr. Rechner because he took the time to truly understand why I was seeking this procedure, explain the procedure in great detail, and then think aloud about how he would personalize this procedure for my body type. I was unsure about moving forward so I scheduled an...
So far so good - I'm excited and grateful to have found a Doctor I am so comfortable with! I will update with pics after.
5 out of 5 stars Facelift
Researched my doctor and discovered extensive background with fellowship in cranio-facial reconstruction. Consult answered all my questions and concerns. I can't stress enough that it is paramount to have total trust in your physician and his support staff/facilities. Third or fourth day out you may slip into a bit of a depression and question your healing process, this is the time you put your big girl pants on and remember TRUST YOUR DOCTOR and relax and let your own healing journey play out. Don't go into surgery with unrealistic deadlines for healing. I gave myself a full month of no work or social engagements. More on that later.

Dr. Rechner is incredible. From my initial consultation where he spent an hour explaining the procedure in detail to the day the procedure where he made sure all my questions were answered. The staff and Dr. Rechner went over and above to make this an amazing experience. I loved that the office staff is always smiling and the surgery nurses provided me with everything i might need once I...
5 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants
Very pleased with my doctor and the time he spent with me. Staff was very friendly . The only issue I had was the surgery time changed three times..day was the same but it was pushed back later in the day. I was ready physically and mentally and it was pushed back by another hour. Doctor called the night of surgery to check on me . It was great as I could then be reassured that what I was feeling was to be expected. My husband and daughter were at the surgery center and everyone made them feel comfortable and kept them informed . Awesome experience and I would consider Dr. Benjamin Rechner if I ever need/want other procedures .
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck Revision
I met Dr Rechner last year and felt comfortable and thought that when I was ready for my next step that he would be my choice. A year later and I decided to consult with two other plastic surgeons. They were both good but I believe Dr Rechner is the best fit for me and will be aggressive in removing all the extra skin that disfigured the body that I have literally worked my ass off for. His staff members were all very sweet and informative. Dr. Rechner seems to genuinely care about his patients and honestly answered all of my questions. I never felt rushed and did not have long waits between all the steps of his consult.

Dr. Rechner is a perfectionist who gives A+ care. I would recommend him for any surgeries. The office staff is wonderful, too.
This is the best doctor-patient relationship I have ever had with any doctor. Every positive thing you read about him is spot on. Basically I had a mini liposuction on my arm to remove a lipoma (fat mass) that was unsightly and seemed to be getting bigger over time. Pretty much immediately after the surgery, my arm looked great! Very little bruising or recovery time. If I plan to have anything more done in the future, Dr. Rechner will be the first doctor I consult with. Amazing and could not be happier!
5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
Dr Rechner is very compassionate , kind, and patient. I never felt rushed during our visit s and his staff is equally as kind . He is very honest and professional. I am extremely happy with my results.
“The decision to undergo plastic surgery is a significant one…and your choice in a surgeon is
equally important. Patients’ expectations must be realistically addressed by an experienced board certified plastic surgeon to attain the desired outcome."
