5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best Breasts - Philadelphia, PA

Dr. Bucky was my fathers doctor before he went into plastic surgery I believe... it's been so long I'm not positive... I know I heard the name from my father, then did some research and so happy I picked him!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

32 and Wanted to Improve my Look - Philadelphia, PA

Dr. Bucky was so wonderful. We made a plan for 339ccs at my consult using the vectra modeling system but the morning of my surgery we discussed using 371ccs. They look amazing. He has such an aesthetic eye. He called me the night after surgery to check up and his nurses followed up the next day. They whole experience has been great.

57 Years Old and Finally Decided to Pursue Breast Reconstruction After Lumpectomy and Radiation - Ardmore, PA

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Bilateral Mastectomy and my Experience with Lymphatic Drainage Massage. Ardmore, PA

Dr. Bucky called me the day I came home from my bi-lateral mastectomy. When I complained that I hurt, he immediately told me to go see Dan Stokes for a lymphatic drainage massage because Dan would make me feel better. Dr. Bucky was right. The massage is extremely gentle and one wonders how it can help someone in fairly severe pain. Perhaps there is such a thing as "magic hands" because Dan...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

I Feel Pretty for the First Time In My Life-Was 21 Years Old When Had Tummy Tuck - Ardmore, PA

Dr. Bucky is absolutely outstanding. He really knows what he is talking about and has his patients best interests in mind. His staff are so professional and courteous. His nurses are incredible and are always available to answer questions. I had my surgery done at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia and stayed overnight in what is called the pavilion that he suggested would be a good idea. I cannot even imagine how I would have survived that first night without staying in the hospital. A tip I would give to anyone getting a tummy tuck in the future is to stay in the hospital for the first night if possible. Many websites say you need someone to stay with you for a week if you live alone. I really disagree from this and believe you should have someone who can take care of you for the first two weeks at least. *Note-the procedure cost does not include how much anesthesia cost as well as the stay in the hospital for one night.

He chose an implant size based on intricate measurements of my body in order to achieve a NATURAL and proportional look! His office is beautiful and the...
