73 Years Old

Dr. Brackup and his assistant, Michelle, explained everything to me. They answered all my questions and managed my expectations. I asked for suggestions to accomplish the look I wanted. Dr. Brackup explained and offered suggestions. He had me bring in pictures and he was very candid with what he could do. Cost was explained and broken down for me. There are no disappointments. I followed their directions to the letter. I am so pleased.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Life Altering!

I've been a patient of Dr. Brackup for several years for Botox and fillers so decided to finally talk to him about liposuction of my abdomen and other areas. My thick middle has bothered me for years. I'm not considered to be overweight but 3 children did a number on my mid area. The results are truly life stomach is perfectly flat...a total washboard like pre-kids! Dr. Brackup...

Don't Go Anywhere Else! Dr. Brackup is Amazing! - Langhorne, PA

Dr. Brackup is very passionate about his work and the results that he obtains for his patients. I never felt like he was rushing to move on to the next patient. He always took his time to thoroughly answer all of my questions. All of his reviews, recommendations by other doctors, and my personal results speak volumes of his expertise.

Professional from Beginning to End

Dr. Brackup and his staff were professional, thorough and extremely personable. From my first visit, I felt comfortable and knew they would answer any questions I had. They made me feel like they wanted my business but weren't pushy (the perfect combination). Before, during, and after surgery, they were attentive and concerned about my comfort and satisfaction with the procedure. I would (and...

Best decision I ever made!

Dr. Alan B. Brackup is an artist and a healer. He has been gifted and he shares his gift. If you are worried or have a fear just look at my before and AFTER pictures. Having my best friend go in for a procedure brought me to Dr. Brackup's practice. I knew I had to stay young and vital to compete in the workplace. I needed to look 45 and that's what Dr. Brackup helped me achieve. Being a single parent is hard and it showed on my face as I aged. There is no getting around the fact that I looked haggard, not a good look for ME. And its not only Dr. Brackup, his staff is top notch, catering to your every need and you know from the minute u meet them - they are like him .

Eye Surgery - Langhorne, PA

I wanted to treat myself for my 60th birthday and this was the best gift I could give myself. I had my lids and my lower eyes done. Dr. Brackup did a fabulous job. I am so happy with the results. Dr. Brackup is not just a great doctor, he is a caring and kind person. To be honest, I have never met a doctor like him before. And I know a lot of doctors.
