5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Nearing the End of the Battle-16 weeks/pics

I met with my plastic surgeon today and I am scheduled for my TT on 3/2/12! I am nervous of course but I feel totally confident with him! I am 43 years old and have lost 150 pounds in the last 18 months all on my own thru diet and exercise. I got married in Oct and my arms were really bad so I had a bilateral brachioplasty with this same doctor and was thrilled, the best money I ever...

Botox - Pennsylvania

Why spend $350 or more for scam Botox online. My doctor has deals where it costs less. Deals on everything. I had it one time back in Oct so far and it was great.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Removed Ancient, Encapsulated Breast Implants, Lifted & Replaced with New Implants - Wyomissing, PA

I had very old breast implants that were placed above the muscle & were very hard & encapsulated. Dr. Schlechter did a beautiful job. He & his staff were available 24/7 and my pain was managed very well. I have had numerous procedures performed by Dr. Schlechter over the years to tune things up, because I trust him & I received the best care possible.

26 Tmj/masseter Muscle Problems - Wyomissing, PA

After years, and I do, literally, mean years, of asking around - to numerous/various specialists about botox treatment for masseter muscle problems (I clench my jaw at night and have tmj/masseter hypertrophy) , Dr. Schlecter was the only person who had even heard of it and was willing to do it. (Which, sadly, means that I know more about orthognathics than certain specialists in my area...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

So Happy! Great Doctor! - Wyomissing, PA

I absolutely love the results of my mommy makeover! The procedures I had were a tummy tuck, augmentation and lift. After three children in which each time I gained 50 pounds and lost 50 pounds to my petite frame, I had considerable amount of stretch marks, which are now GONE. I am so glad I made the decision to have the procedure. Recovery is a piece of cake with the breasts however the...

1 out of 5 stars Scars Treatment

Scar Revision Turned into a Painful Hypertropic Scar - Avoid Dr. Benjamin Schlecter. Wyomissing, PA

Dr. Benjamin Schlecter of Spring Ridge Cosmetic Surgery Center assured me that he could minimize a flat, pain-free scar with surgery. What I ended up with was a very painful hypertropic scar. Dr. Schlechter was extremely uncaring about the result of his surgery. I would NOT recommend Dr. Benjamin Schlecter to anyone. I have been to another doctor to correct the damage done by Dr....
