Excellent everything - highly recommend for any type of service - Anna at Dr. Decherd is amazing. The whole staff is great! Went to get treated for a laser burn that happened at a spa and Anna the physician assistant recommend that I try the Halo. I love it. In fact my burn area on my cheek is clearing up. I highly recommend Dr. Decherd’s office for any type of services. Great Job!!Updated on 19 Mar 2022:Anna is amazing! I got burned with a Dot laser at Millenium Medi Spa so I went to see Anna at Dr. Decherd’s office and she set a plan for me so I agreed to Halo with BBL and finally I can wear my hair up and do t have to hide my burn mark. Literally almost gone. I’m so happy. More

I'm super excited for the big surgery day to get here - I met with Dr. Decherd back in July 2021 for a consultation. I had previously met a couple other local surgeons and was excited to meet Dr. Decherd after extensive research. His before and after's were absolutely amazing and I was eager to meet him. When I arrived I felt welcomed and the nurse who brought me back was really nice and welcoming. I instantly felt comfortable. When Dr. Decherd walked in he explained everything to me and even drew a picture. I felt very informed and I didn't feel that way with the other provider I had meet. My Mommy make over (breast augmentation, tummy tuck and lipo) is scheduled for 11/15/2021 and I'm super excited. For my breast I have decided to go with 485 high profile silicone implants. This fits my chest size of 13 diameter (I think that's what I measured) which was a big concern for me as I don't want boobs that are to far apart and wanted to ensure the implants fit my chest size. For my tummy tuck the goal is to go as low as possible to hide scar and to get rid of as much stretch marks as possible. I plan on discussing this in more detail again during my pre op apt scheduled in October. He will also be doing some lipo to give a smooth contoured look on my sides. I'm hoping to look "snatched" after lol. I'm super excited for the big surgery day to get here!! I will be doing updates during my post op experience as well as post plenty of before and after pictures. More

34 yr old mommy makeover- breast lift, 350cc low profile aug, tummy tuck, lipo of inner and outer thighs - After having my daughter, no matter how much time I spent in the gym, there were just some body parts that were not going back so I opted for a full mommy makeover. It included tummy tuck with limited lipo, lipo of inner and outer thighs, breast lift, and breast augmentation (natrelle silicon low profile 350 cc). My biggest fear was choosing the right breast size! I wanted upper pole volume but not a ton of projection. It's rather rare for women to opt for low profile but they were perfect for my needs. So ladies if you have a decent amount of breast issue that needs to be lifted and your not looking for a massive size increase but upper fullness and better shape don't be afraid of the low profile! My after picture is just 4 days post op so there is obviously some swelling and my breasts are high but I can already tell I'm going to love the results! Dr Decherd and his staff have been beyond amazing and my after picture speaks volumes about his amazing work. Some tips, rent yourself a recliner lift chair and walker! the lift chair is a game changer! It's comfortable to sleep in and made getting in and out of bed so much easier. Have HELP, I had my mom, dad and husband with me, believe me you will need help for everything the first 3-4 days. The first 4 days are no joke mainly due to the side affects of anesthesia, but by day 5 I felt like I made the turn and have been backing off the major pain meds and the nausea is gone. I go in for my first post op in 3 days. I can't wait to see my results over the coming months! More

I can see my shape coming through more and more each week. I still am very swollen as you can tell by my side picture, but that’s a normal part of the process. The process is certainly a roller coaster of emotions but I know it will all be worth it in the end! More

I had a breast augmentation done almost a year ago, I was a 36b to begin with and 500cc later I am now a 36DD, I absolutely love my new boobies. He did a great job and my down time was only a few days. I healed up nicely with no complications. I definitely recommend this doctor. More

It's almost been a year now and I am so in love with them - I went to Dr. Decherd for my breast augmentation and am so happy how it turned out. He and his staff were very friendly and professional through the entire experience. I went once for my consultation and quickly tried on sizers. The whole following week I worried about if the size was what I wanted so I called to ask if I could try on the sizers again and they told me to just walk in anytime to try them on. I ultimately went for the max size in the range they recommended for me. 420cc high profile round silicone. My pre-op and post-op care were superb (my nurse was Denise love her!), Dr. Decherd and his anesthesiologist both talked to me before the procedure and I felt like I was in great hands the entire time (my perspective as a L&D/postpartum nurse with experience in the OR).Recovery was fine, I definitely took the pain meds I was given for the first 4 days then started to ween myself down. Those first few day my husband helped me do everything, even wash my hair lol. My boobs were so high and started off square looking, I knew it was a normal part of the process but it still was freaky. After a few months they started to drop and fluff, not at the same time though. It's almost been a year now and I am so in love with them. I got new bras and they sized me at a 32DD! And that's on coming from 32AA :) I'm so happy I did it! I have 2 kids and was really getting in the best shape of my life before the surgery but my boobs were shrunken from weight loss and deflated from the kids. I hope my experience helps you guys, I know I was obsessed with reading reviews and seeing the befores and afters while I was deciding on whether to do it More

Let me start by saying I love my results! - I'm post-op 10 weeks. I had a tummy tuck with muscle repair and lipo. I literally teared up when I saw my stomach for the first time. I don't 'feel' pregnant anymore, my belly button looks natural and I still can't believe how flat my stomach is! The staff and nurses are caring and helpful.I never felt rushed, he took the time to listen & answer all my questions.  Dr. Decherd has EXCEEDED my expectations. I have mentioned him to everyone I know that is considering a tummy tuck! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. DECHERD! More

I'm 62 y/o and have been obese more of my life than not. I finally got the weight off and worked out, but skin can't be exercised. Dr. D was recommended to be by my General Practioner. It has now been one week since my tummy tuck and breast lift. I feel great!Bullets:- Great and efficent front office staff. Trust me, that can make or break the experience.- Cost, deposits, and final pay date, well defined, with no surprises.- Dr D and Sarah, coordinator, spent a good deal of time with me, helping me decide was was good for me, and managing expectations. YOU CAN TRUST THEM.- Surgery suite is private and not in a hospital. Only reason I went ahead during the Covid times. I won't go to a public hospital.- Anesthesologist was so comforting. He explain everything and was patient with my questions. I don't know what they gave me in pre-op room, but it was good! I don't remember being wheeled into the operating suite. Stress less.- After surgery, they are just nice. They made sure my husband understood the instructions, and sent us home prepared.- Pain was shockingly mild. At most, I was uncomfortable. The binders are a [RS bleep], but they are critical for a great final result. I had adequate pain meds and didn't used them after the 3rd day.- I was allowed to shower 24 hours after!!!! And I did. Heaven.- I had /have two drains in my mons for the tummy tuck. They don't hurt, but they are uncomfortable and need to be emptied and the fluid tracked. It's not hard, just not something I wanted to do, but I do.The first time I took off my clothes and binders and looked in the mirror!- 24 hours after surgery I took my shower. I took off the binders/compression garments, held my drains in my hands, and stood in front of a full length mirror. I was stunned. Absolutely stunned. Even with the tape, stitches, a bit of bruising and drains, I looked amazing. My stomach was absolutely flat.....absolutely. My waist was smaller, and has gotten smaller each day. I had a rocken body.- I opted for a breast lift vs implant. I was a DD and think I'll be somewhere between a very full C or D. They are beautiful, natural looking. My aerolas were placed perfectly and I have feeling in them. Everything is swollen and will change, but the beginning start is just amazing.- Day after tomorrow I go do see if my drains can be taken out. That will be a banner day when I can. I'll update this with progress and pics. More

I am 38 with three children ages 20, 5, and 4. I'm having my tummy tuck with muscle repair and breast lift/reduction tomorrow at 7 am. I am excited and nervous at the same time, but I am ready to get back to feeling like me inside and out, and comfortable in my own skin. I am tired of hiding behind baggy tee shirts because I look pregnant when I am not (I have been asked a couple of times). I have chosen Dr. Decherd as my ps. I chose him because he made me feel comfortable during my consultation, unlike some of the others. I will post before and after pics soon. Wish me luck!!! More

I no longer dread wearing a swimsuit - Nine months ago, I had a tummy tuck and nipple reduction surgery. I am extremely happy with the results and the care from Dr. Decherd and his staff. I was almost 42 years old at the time of surgery and had loose skin and separated abdominal muscles from my 5 pregnancies. I had nursed my babies for a combined total of 7 years. This left me with long, droopy nipples. There was a two month wait to see Dr. Decherd for a consult when I initially contacted his office. I met with him and Heather (one of his RN's). I was probably with them for an hour or more. They were very thorough in answering questions and explaining everything. I had been on one other consult, with another surgeon previously, and wasn't comfortable with the staff. Everyone on Dr. Decherd's staff is kind, competent and easy to talk to. It took a long time to get a consult, but following my surgery, it was always easy to get an appointment. They took excellent care of me. I spent a lot of time in online forums (for tummy tucks) before my surgery and saw many posts from unhappy people. I feel fortunate to have found a highly skilled and experienced surgeon who pays attention to every detail of a tummy tuck. So many surgeons don't get things quite right in the operating room or the recovery. When doing a tummy tuck, Dr. Decherd lifts the mons, makes a low incision (which is important if you want to wear a bikini), does lipo in the area near the incision, repairs the separated abdominal muscles and makes a fantastic looking belly button. He uses Exparel, which controls pain in the early days following surgery. The tape he uses on the incision stays on for about 3 weeks.......I'm glad that I didn't have to see my incision initially. When the tape did come off, the scar was thin and flat. I had sciatic nerve pain in my left hip for over 8 years (since my 4th pregnancy). It went away completely after the tummy tuck. I'm guessing that fixing the separated abdominal muscles is the reason for that. What a pleasant surprise!I'm very happy with my results. I had spent over a decade wearing tight camisoles under my clothing to hold in my loose skin. Now I can wear a bikini with confidence....I have the mid section of a teenager. Before surgery, my nipples folded over when I put on a bra. I was disgusted by the sight of them. Dr. Decherd made them normal again and I have no loss of sensation.I would recommend Dr. Decherd for anyone who is interested in plastic surgery on their body. I'm going to attach some before and after photos of my belly. More

Finally Feeling Great - My consultation with Dr. Dechard is what sold me on choosing him. He was friendly and took time to make sure all my questions were answered. He did not make me feel like he was in a rush. His staff is the best -- they try to help you as quickly as they can. Dr. Dechard did a wonderful job on my tummy tuck w/ muscle repair, breast lift, and liposuction. I had lost over 100 pounds and after 29 years of being obese, my body just could not recover. My loose skin is gone and I can finally buy pretty underwear and clothes! No more frustration in dressing rooms and no more hiding parts of my body that I couldn't stand. Dr. Dechard's work is wonderful! My scar is barely noticeable around my areolas, and I am only 2.5 months out from surgery (Nov. 26th, 2018). My tummy tuck scar is so much better than I had imagined -- he really cares about how it will look. Compared to some scars I have seen online, Dr. Dechard's work is exquisite. My abdomen is flat and firm and my breasts are just so cute and perky. He even helps you choose the size of your 'new' nipples! And ladies, he makes certain that *everything* down below looks *GOOD*... it was literally breathtaking when I saw how *all* my parts looked wonderful. I am almost fifty and my body looks better than it did when I was 18. After surgery, Dr. Dechard told me I would probably want to wear a bikini this summer and I scoffed. I've NEVER worn a bikini, one piece swimsuits only. Well...he might be right. I am seriously thinking of trying it! I will sing this man's praises to the end of time. If you want great work, an awesome support system, and a fantastic bod, choose Dr. Dechard. I feel like a million bucks More

After having 6 children I was in desperate need of a tummy tuck. I had a lot of loose skin and a hernia. Dr. Decherd did an amazing job fixing it. I’m 17 days out and even though I have a lot of healing ahead of me I’m already thrilled with my new belly. The scar is nice and low and he got rid of my hernia. He's very straightforward and to the point. He’s not going to coddle you, but he’s an excellent surgeon. His staff is friendly and pleasant and so far I’m pleased. I would highly recommend him! His work speaks for itself.Updated on 29 Nov 2018:I’m 3 months post op and I’m still swollen but I’m loving my results. I’ve gained a little weight but hasn’t affected anything. Everything still feels tight and I still feel weird sleeping flat but it doesn’t hurt at all. More

I am almost fifty and my body looks better than it did when I was 18. After surgery, Dr. Dechard told me I would probably want to wear a bikini this summer and I scoffed. I've NEVER worn a bikini, one piece swimsuits only. Well...he might be right. I am seriously thinking of trying it! I will sing this man's praises to the end of time. If you want great work, an awesome support system, and a fantastic bod, choose Dr. Dechard. I feel like a million bucks More

Finally Feeling Great - My consultation with Dr. Dechard is what sold me on choosing him. He was friendly and took time to make sure all my questions were answered. He did not make me feel like he was in a rush. His staff is the best -- they try to help you as quickly as they can.

My Tummy Tuck Story - Hey there. I wanted to start documenting my journey. I’ve got an a abdominoplasty w/Lipo and a lateral skin excision scheduled for December 17, 2018. But first, the backstory. I’ve always been overweight and had been diagnosed with diabetes a few years ago. My highest recorded weight was 388lbs. It’s always been a struggle to lose and maintain weight loss. So I’m December of last year, I elected to have a gastric sleeve procedure. Best decision in my life. I’m off all of my diabetic meds, I’ve lost right at 175lbs. I feel great and feel that I have unlocked a quality of life I thought I never would have attained. With that weight loss, comes the excess skin. At 6months after my sleeve, I started looking for a PS. I found a few and scheduled consults. At present time, I live in Alaska. One of the surgeons here wanted nearly 22k for my procedure. The surgeon was great but that price was far outside budget. I gave family living in San Antonio, so I scheduled a console down there. I found two, but ultimately selected Dr. Dechard. His demeanor is calm and approachable. He answered all of my questions and made me feel very confident and comfortable with him. Total for my procedure was quoted for 11k. I put down a deposit and scheduled my surgery. I can’t wait. I did schedule a month off from work. I’ll post pictures once it gets closer to my surgery date. More

Thrilled with my new tummy! - After having 6 children I was in desperate need of a tummy tuck. I had a lot of loose skin and a hernia. Dr. Decherd did an amazing job fixing it. I’m 17 days out and even though I have a lot of healing ahead of me I’m already thrilled with my new belly. The scar is nice and low and he got rid of my hernia. He's very straightforward and to the point. He’s not going to coddle you, but he’s an excellent surgeon. His staff is friendly and pleasant and so far I’m pleased. I would highly recommend him! His work speaks for itself.Updated on 29 Nov 2018:I’m 3 months post op and I’m still swollen but I’m loving my results. I’ve gained a little weight but hasn’t affected anything. Everything still feels tight and I still feel weird sleeping flat but it doesn’t hurt at all. More

Full mommy makeover - I'm so blessed i found Dr. Decherd. I had a full mommy makeover, upper arm lipo, and back lift. I've been working with him for almost 2 years now and it's been ups and downs with scar revisions, etc. However Dr. Decherd and his staff have always been there for me and helped me get through it all. He stood by his word and fixed some of the scars and common revisions needed after major plastic surgery. I'm so thankful for everything he's done. I highly recommend doing a consult with him before choosing your plastic surgeon. I saw over eight local plastic surgeons in san antonio and i found Dr. Decherd prices and professionalism won above all the Drs i saw. I did a lot of research before choosing and I have no regrets at all choosing Dr. Decherd. Two of my friends i recommended him to also had excellent outcomes. They both went to Dr Decherd on my recommendation and came out with excellent outcomes. One had a facelift and she experienced some medical complications but Dr Decherd and his staff stepped in and took immediate care of her. My friend had no issues using the cosmetic insurance Dr Decherd offers all his patients to cover the $costs for the medical complications that came up. I personally didn't have to use that cosmetic insurance but i recommend everyone get it. I think its called CosmetAssure. My other friend had a breast augmentation and her work looks amazing. No complications and happy overalls. Big thank you to him and his staff. More

Full TT with Lipo at Flanks and Muscle Repair - 26 Years Old, Major Weight Loss - I lost about 100 pounds in a year, which left me with some major saggy skin on my tummy. Had a full tt with lipo on flanks and muscle repair with Dr. Decherd in San Antonio. It was way way way worth it. I have never loved my body more. My scar is healing beautifully and I have no problem with it whatsoever. It is hidden under all underwear, even thongs. I feel amazing and love showing off my belly. Healing wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. After about three weeks I started to feel pretty normal. I’m currently about 3.5 months post op and feel 100% back to normal. I workout regularly and am back to being able to do push ups, ab work, and everything I could do before the surgery. More

I was afraid of the pain, scared I'd hate it ... end up botched , you name it I thought it. Let me put your mind to rest if you think that way too. The pain is only for a few days (2 for me) . The rest was just feeling tight and sore. Dr. Decherd is not going to botch you, he's GREAT! at his job. He will give you back a body you will love. More

So happy with my breast lift /Augmentation! - I had a breast lift with an augmentation in November of 2004 and then got pregnant in January of 2005 which cause a very undesirable effect on my breasts. In 2012 I had the implants removed as part of a process to help improve the shape but did not get the results I wanted. I went back to my original PS from 2004 and he was able to do an amazing job with 390cc silicone implants and do a lift at the same time! My breasts look and feel amazing so far! I can hardly wait until the swelling goes down and I can start exercising again!!! Amazing!! More

I had an amazing experience - San Antonio, TX - Omg!!! My experience with Dr Decherd and his staff has been an amazing experience thus far. His staff is wonderful... the ladies are the ones who really help me solitify my decision to go with Dr. Decherd. I'm 5'9 at 32 yrs old recently lost 42lbs 195 down to 158 and breastfed for 22 months and now with a 4 year old and have always had saggy breast and it was even worst after breastfeeding. So I decided to have a breast lift and implants 339CC.I made my consultation appt and before I left his office I knew I found the right doctor and staff. They allowed me to visit multiple times to make sure felt comfortable with the CC of implants and Kelsey is amazing allowing me to email her back and forth all day long with questions.The day of the surgery the hospital staff was amazing, they made sure I was comfortable and kept me calm. They helped me with pain management afterwards and I must say I didn't experience anything over a 3 on a scale 1-10 for pain. I'm day 7 and still haven't experienced over a 3. Not sure if i have a high pain tolerance or Dr. Decherd is gentle during surgery or the medication he prescribe is the perfect. I was super scared of the healing and recovery process and it has been a breeze. I was up moving around 24 hours after surgery and back to work in 4 days.Heather called me from her personal cell phone the day of surgery to make sure I was ok and gave me extra information. Dr. Decherd's office provided all the information you needed prior to surgery, day of surgery and the days following.I would recommend him to anyone and I'm sure my results once the healing is completed will be amazing, I look amazing now at day 7...I can only imagine 3 months from now.And I can't leave Ashley out...she is super sweet and amazing and she shared with me her personal experience and that also sent comfort my way to go ahead with the procedure.Thank you so much!!!!Janelle More

I am without a doubt very pleased with my experience with Dr. Decherd. From start to finish he was amazing, beginning with my consultation through current date at 5 weeks post-op. Surgery was a breeze, I was worried I would be in terrible pain and out of commission after surgury and I was back to work by choice the very next day. I didn't have any side effects from surgury, hardly any brushing and I am satisfied with my decision to have surgury and in choosing him as my doctor. He made sure I was comfortable and happy with my results and boy am I delighted with his work. I am in love with my new boobs! Thank you Dr. Decherd! More

Pre-op 34C/D. Growing up I would yoyo (gain and lose weight) often. I would gain 20lbs and lose 25lbs a couple times each year. My breasts were always the first to lose and gain the weight. When I turned 18 I had a donut lift. The scar from that procedure stretched out and my breasts looked worse than before. More

Last year, I went to Dr. Decherd for a problem that has plagued me all of my life. I'm 5'3", 107 and I eat healthy and maintain a healthy lifestyle. However, I had saddlebags on my hips. Dr. D performed Lipo on my hips and removed this problem. His work is amazing, detailed and spot on. His bedside manner is kind, tender and his staff exhibits the same qualities. I'm so glad that I found him and his staff. If you have an issue, I urge you to go see him and his staff. You won't regret it only if you don't go check him out. More

I was recommended Dr. Decherd from a friend of a friend in which she had a procedure done which she was pleased on how it turned out. I went into the office and was greeted with professionalism and compassion in my nervousness to have a breast lift, implants and a eye brow lift (due to nerve damage during a previous surgery years ago). Dr. Decherd, Monica and other members of his staff are AMAZING!! Dr. Decherd gets to the point in his suggestions and recommendations which made me feel confident and excited to have my procedures done!! Monica in his office, is such an AMAZING woman who knows how to make you feel "not guilty" in your decision to "invest" in yourself - I appreciated that!! I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Decherd for any procedure you are thinking about doing!! More

Having a tummy tuck has changed my life!!!! Best thing I ever did!!! - Hi everyone!! I have been wanting to do this for years!!! Just never thought I would have the money to do it. I had my first son when I was 15 and my lower belly got stretch marks and a saddle bag. I handled it...but then at 21 my twins came and so did my gallbladder troubles. I had my first one naturally but my twins were c section. After the c section I went home started having worse gallbladder problems so two months later it was removed. I felt like a science project that year. I had never had surgery til then. I also felt like my stomach looked like it had been attacked by a cheese grater lol. I always had this pregnant appearance because my upper belly was so huge. I have always been asked when I was due. Lol the first time it happened I was devastated...but after living in this body for so long I just said what the heck and started laughing about it. After my boys were born I weighed about 165 lbs and I started working out every day. I went down to 150-155 and that's where I stayed for years...couldn't get it off of me...then I started working overnights and lifting heavy things and the lowest I got was 141 lbs. at this point my legs looked anorexic I started getting sick and my belly still was just a shinning. So I eventually just gave up and I have been between 170- to 180 ever since. I thought what's the point of working out if I will lose everywhere but my belly? And then look sick in my legs and backside?As of now I can wear a size 11-13 pants but legs are huge!! If they fall past my belly...they hit the floor!! Leggings are becoming my friends lol I wear a size 2x top to hide my whopper belly. It helps but the sleeves are too big. I absolutely can not wear a one piece bathing suit!! The butt in the suit hangs but my belly stretches out the material so tight!! Two piece tankinis are wonderful!! I can get short bottoms size 7-9 and then a 2x top so my belly will fit in there!! Bathing suits are a nightmare really... Shorts.....forget it...belly fits... my legs look like they are ringing a bell ..the legs are so big lol so really shopping for clothes is no fun at all!! And takes a lot of time to do to make sure things will fit right. I don't wish to be model thin...as a matter of fact I don't mind being a little healthy boned...I just am really looking forward to being proportionate again. Having a waist again. And being able to actually fit in some clothes that will look decent. And to be able to wear yellow or purple with out feeling like I look like big bird or Barney lol darker colors really help conceal this biz...but man some bright colors would be lovely...I have been on realself now since 2012...all your stories and photos have inspired me. It's nice to know I'm not alone in how I feel and not alone in wanting to have a positive change for myself....not not just feel good in my heart but to feel good about myself all the way around. I have never known a normal body since I was 15. It's time for me now!!! I have not yet scheduled my appointment but I hope to very soon within the next couple of months! ???? More

33 Yo, 3 Kids (17,9,2) Much Needed Mommy Makeover - San Antonio, TX - I am now 1yr and 4 months post op Mommy Makeover. I didn't want to write a review until I went through at least one year of this journey. To make a long story as short as possible my body changed dramatically by the age of 16 yrs old. I had my daughter and gained a massive amount of weight. My body went from an active athlete to an overweight young mother within 9 months. I never saw myself as fat until years later when I saw my pictures. 7 years later I had my son and lost 50 pounds. I went from a size 16 to an 8. I found my inner athlete again and worked out like crazy. Although my skin was never the same again. My boobs got much smaller and I lost alot of muscle mass. They drooped and the skin on my stomach would never be the same again either. NO matter how much I worked out I could not tighten the stretched out skin on my lower abdomen. That is when I knew I would one day need a mommy makeover. I wanted to make sure I was completely done having my children first. Sure enough, 7 years later I had my 3rd child and went back to a size 12-14. I tied my tubes and told my husband it was time for me and for my mommy makeover! My breasts were even more deflated and uneven, my stomach was bigger and more saggy than even before! I was nervous because it was not a cheap thing to do and we are not filthy rich. I was nervous because it's a huge decision and I didn't want to end up on Botched. I started doing research and became obsessed with looking at mommy makeovers online. Some MM looked so bad It was scary. I had a friend I did crossfit with and she recommend Dr. Michael Dechard. She had a lift and augmentation with him and was happy with her results. I set my appointment up and had my first free consultation. I was happy with the staff and Dr. Dechard. I didn't feel uncomfortable and he pretty much broke it all down for me. All my questions and showed me pictures. I knew that day he would be my Doctor. I had all three surgeries done at once. My lift, Augmentation (600 cc) , and tummy tuck. Best decision to do it all at the same time. I have 3 kids and cannot afford to keep going in and out of surgeries. The procedure took about 6 hours. I woke up and right away wanted to see my results. I was able to open my surgery belt and was immediatly happy with my results. I was in recovery for a few hours and was sent home. No over night stay. I recommend a walker, and chair to sit on when you shower, a recliner and meds etc. I'm not going to lie recovery was brutal. I slept for the first day or two but after that the drains were really annoying and somewhat painful. I got them out at about 1 week PO. Lower back pain is horrible because you are hunched over for weeks. Dr, Dechard did a great job tightening my muscles and took off my skin to the point where all my stretch marks were gone. It took me six weeks to stand strait because he did tighten my skin so much. Swell hell gets really bad about month 2-3. Do not get discouraged, it's normal but frustrating. I tried to stay away from high sodium foods and bad foods of course. I slept in my old maternity bras and was able to unclip the front and clean my incisions easily. I also wore my surgical belt all day and spanx for months. It really helps the swelling and just makes you feel secure and tight where the incision is. I bought surgical scar strips and Maderma. Over all, I can say I did not feel completely normal until about 10 months. I think the waiting is the hardest thing out of everything. I do not regret my mommy makeover one bit. I am able to wear things that I could not even wear after having my daughter as a teen. I never enjoyed a youthful looking body until now. No more spanx, no more major bra support. I am happy and my husband is happy. lol More

I had smoked for 40 years and had also been under a great deal of stress for most of my married life (33 years). My goal was to get rid of the jowls and to look less haggered. Dr. Michael Decherd at the San Antonio Plastic Surgery Institute did a facelift, necklift, and upper and lower bleph. I look fabulous and I feel fabulous! I feel like he gave me all of my missing time back. His bedside manner is wonderful and the hospital was great, as well. I was realistic about my goals and didn't expect to look 25-I just wanted to look my age. And I wanted people to stop telling me I looked tired all the time. So glad I went for it! Now I am just focusing on my skincare. Still have some healing to do on the inside, but it comes with time. More

It shows that they all truly care about what you want. When I went in for my consult Dr.Decherd was informative and took his time answering any and all questions I had. He spent and hour and a half going through all the details I was concerned about. Due to the fact that I was unhappy with my previous surgeon and results, I dedicated months to make sure I would have a better experience this time. I spent the summer looking for a doctor and going to multiple consults to find the right one for me. Taking my time and doing the research paid off 100%. I had never been comfortable with my breasts until I met this amazing surgeon. They are exactly what I wanted and I am absolutely in LOVE with them! I have Dr.Decherds business cards in my wallets and recommend him to anyone and everyone that is looking into getting something done. I can't thank him enough for what he has done for me. More

36 5'4" 135lbs Mom to 3 - San Antonio, TX - Dr. Decherd is a BADASS!! Update: I'm not sure that I have ever seen a TT scar this low. Didn't even think it was possible. I originally went in for a mini tummy tuck. So glad I listened to Dr. Decherd and chose him to do a full tummy tuck! Just had scar revision. My original scar was already low and "pretty", as far as TT scars go. Very symmetrical, and my husband kept saying it just looks like I'm wearing a tiny bikini bottom....it didn't even bother him. It was beginning to lighten so much on the hips that I could barely see it,but I'm really in to the super low Brazilian bikini bottoms. Dr. Decherd offered to lower it for me even more. He also said that he would like to revise my BB (hence, the red inflamed BB once again) to get rid of the hypertrophic scar atlround the top ( the bottom scarred beautifully...tiny faint white line....very hard to see). Hopefully this time the top will scar like the bottom. I was already happy with my result. Now, I can wear my teeny, tiny bottoms without constantly checking to see if the scar is poking out on the hips. I have gone from "happy with my result", to "thrilled and ecstatic with my result". From the beginning, Dr. Decherd told me he would continue with me until we were both happy with the result. He has certainly made good on that promise. I would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to have a tummy tuck or mommy makeover procedure. His office staff has been great! Both he and his nurse Heather have been absolutely AMAZING!! More

Completed Mommy Makeover In Dec 2015, 6 months after BA/BL - San Antonio, TX - I'm so glad I trusted Dr D!!! He has completed my Mommy Makeover with expert precision. His scarring is expertly placed and beautifully thin. Both of my recoveries were a breeze and I can't say enough great things about his team. Thank you Dr D for changing my life!!!! - - I finally took the plunge and scheduled my TT for Dec 17th. I had a BA/BL in June and feel great. I Was convinced I didn't need a TT and could work my way into flat abs. After much research and discussion with my PS, I finally conceded. This loose skin will never conform to its old ways. I love my PS, so I'm returning to him for my TT. My BA/BL surgery in June was a breeze, so im hoping the TT wI'll be as well (wishful thinking I'm sure). I have a long wait in store, so im going to continue on my fitness journey so that I'm in the best shape I can be by December. It'll be much better to go through recovery in the winter vs. summer. I have about 10-15 lbs to lose to then. I run 15-20 miles a week and strength train 2-3 days a week. Still lots of loose skin in ab area with plenty of jiggly fat. I'm 5'8" and currently 165lbs.

4 months PO TT & 10 months PO BA/BL update- San Antonio, TX - I'm so glad I trusted Dr D!!! He has completed my Mommy Makeover with expert precision. His scarring is expertly placed and beautifully thin. Both of my recoveries were a breeze and I can't say enough great things about his team. Thank you Dr D for changing my life!!!! - - I finally took the plunge and scheduled my TT for Dec 17th. I had a BA/BL in June and feel great. I Was convinced I didn't need a TT and could work my way into flat abs. After much research and discussion with my PS, I finally conceded. This loose skin will never conform to its old ways. I love my PS, so I'm returning to him for my TT. My BA/BL surgery in June was a breeze, so im hoping the TT wI'll be as well (wishful thinking I'm sure). I have a long wait in store, so im going to continue on my fitness journey so that I'm in the best shape I can be by December. It'll be much better to go through recovery in the winter vs. summer. I have about 10-15 lbs to lose to then. I run 15-20 miles a week and strength train 2-3 days a week. Still lots of loose skin in ab area with plenty of jiggly fat. I'm 5'8" and currently 165lbs.

49 Yrs & Just Wanted a Fuller Look - San Antonio, TX - If you are searching for a PS, look no further. Dr. Michael Decherd is the best Dr. He is very knowledgable, an expert at his profession & his staff is phenomenal. He performed a BA. I just got it done on June 4, 2015, so I don't have posted pics yet. But I jus wanted to put it out there that Dr. Decherd & his team are the best. They answered all concerns & let me come in the office three diff times to try on, without an attitude or problems. After my surgery, his office sent me a basket of get well flowers. Which really made my day. I highly recommend Dr. Decherd. Xoxoxo to you guys. More

35, BA/BL After 3 Kids, 5'8"& 160lbs, 510 mod profile round Silicone Unders - San Antonio, TX - I knew Dr Decherd was the right fit as soon as I met him. He was the last Dr I met with and ended up canceling with another doctor after meeting Dr Decherd. His bedside manner is impeccable, he spent a ton of time educating me on all things lift and implant. I felt like he would take better care of me. So far I love the initial results, he managed to give me exactly the look I was hoping for. I know things take awhile to settle and I won't be able to see my scars for awhile, but Dr. Decherd gets an A+ in my book for now. Plus his staff is seriously amazing!!!! - - I've found this site so helpful, I thought I would chronicle my own experience for others. I'm 35 and after breast feeding 3 kids, I'm a saggy mess! I'm 5'8" at 160lbs and wear a size 8, bra size is an empty 36C/D. My bwd is 16 (seems quite wide!). I have been thinking about taking the plunge for a few years (my youngest is 8). I really want to be more confident and be able to wear a bathing suit or strapless top without having having boobs sag to my knees! I consulted with 5 doctors in my area. Selected one initially and paid my deposit to schedule surgery. His bedside manner was lacking to say the least but he had great reviews. Something kept nagging at me about it and I ended up consulting with my 5th and final doctor, two weeks later (took me weeks to get in!). I knew right away this was the doctor for me. Reviews were great, photos were great, his team was great and above all he spent a ton of time answering my questions and really educating me on the process. So I cancelled my first doctor and rescheduled with my current Dr. I know I'll be in great hands.My surgery is scheduled for June 1st, round silicone unders with an anchor lift. Dr originally recommended 600 cc's to match my bwd, but I started to worry they were too big. I actively run, approx 20 miles per wk, and became afraid they would be too big. I went back in for a resize and saw the nurse. She said I could go down to a 550 or 510. They didn't have 550's to try on but I liked the 510's. Like many of you, I'm doing a ton of photo/story searching and im having a really hard time coming up with a good comparison! Seems most women are shorter and lighter than me.I think I have plenty of breast tissue but I don't want to end up too small or too big. On another topic all the Drs said I'm a prime candidate for a tummy tuck. Now im determined to get down to a low body fat percentage and pray for good natural skin tightening. I know the stretch marks will never go away (I earned them!) and I'm okay hiding a little lose skin in the bathing suit bottoms. I'm hoping a year from now I can post updated scar photos with a ripped body. I really don't want to have to recover from a TT or pay for it for that matter. I'm okay with some imperfections. For years I could never wear a bikini because of my stretch marks. Now I just own my body and hope my boobs will look so good no one will look down to the belly, lol. Lots of support from hubby of 16 years. I think he's more excited than me most days. Says he loves the girls how they are, but will enjoy an upgrade. He, of course, wants me to go "big". More

My Mommy Makeover Was Last Thursday! - San Antonio, TX - Dr. Decherd was fabulous. I scheduled three consultations and he was the one i was most excited about. He's very matter of fact and is really laid back. He listened to what I wanted. His staff is so much fun and they are always nice and understanding when you call with dumb questions. I felt at home on the first day I went there and even cancelled my third consultation with another dr. after I met with Dr. Decherd. So far, from what I can see through all the bandages everything looks amazing. I can't wait to take off the strips and see what everything looks like! I highly recommend him!!! More

5' 9" 40 Yo with Under Muscle Silicon (Empty 38C to Full 38DDD) + Thigh Liposuction - He, his facility, and staff were all great! Very friendly, I was always seen promptly, if I called with a question it was quickly answered. they let me try on different sizes. What also really helped in my decision making was the imaging system he has on site. Given the risk, expense, long term commitment to the whole process, I was having difficulty visualizing the breast aug and it was so hard to make a choice that way. His imaging system helped me get comfortable with the potential outcome and selecting the size to fit my frame. It was priceless to me. It was also pretty darn close ;) More

My tummy tuck is scheduled for Monday the 29th at 730am. I'm not too nervous yet, just looking forward to seeing what I look like afterwards.

28 Year Old, with 2 Kids. San Antonio, TX - As I said earlier, I looked online at different surgeons. I chose Dr. Decherd as my first consultation because I felt he was the best from what I could see online. His patients on his website had amazing results and that drew me in. My consultation appointment was awesome. From the first moment you step into the office, the staff is so nice. They make you feel very comfortable and are super friendly. Then I met Dr. Decherd who is one of the nicest guys you'll meet. He made me feel so comfortable. Since my husband was deployed at the time, Dr. Decherd allowed my husband to be there on Skype, which was so nice of him. The procedure was discussed thoroughly and I felt well informed by the time I left. All my questions and concerns were answered. Another really great thing about him was that I never felt rushed. I knew as soon as I left the office that he had to be the one to do my tummy tuck. I planned to do my tummy tuck as soon as my husband got back from his deployment which was kinda tricky because he didn't really have an exact date of when he would be back. But once again, Dr. Decherd and his staff are AWESOME and were able to make it work with short notice. I am now 10 weeks post op!!! I am sooooooooooo happy with my results! One of the reasons why I chose him was because of how the scars on his patients looked.... so I wasn't surprised when my scar turned out pretty nice :) Every time I had to go in for a check up, Dr. Decherd and his staff are still the same. They still make me feel comfortable, not rushed and are just great people. I have recommended him to all my friends and even family members that don't live here. That's how amazing he is. If you're considering any type of plastic surgery, just schedule an appointment with him and see for yourself. Trust me, you won't regret it :) More

46 Year Old, 3 C-sections and Lots of Sagging Skin - San Antonio, TX - I definitely recommend researching your plastic surgeon. I asked another female physician I trusted and got the names of several surgeons. After calling and talking to the office staff, I made my first appointment and felt very comfortable with Dr, Decherd. . I also recommend not only being comfortable with the doctor, but his staff because that is who you will be dealing with should you have questions or problems before you get to the doctor. Dr. Decherd took time to explain everything to me and asked if I had questions. He is super positive and has a great bedside manner. I had a lot of minor questions after my surgery and he and his staff were always friendly and never seemed to be bothered by my questions. I could not be more pleased with my results or my PS. More

Best Thing I Could Have Done! - I have four children and three of them were C-sections. After a Hysterectomy.. I had a lot of scar tissue built up. I could see the lump of scar tissue through my clothes. I would also get so bloated that I would look six months pregnant because of all of the extra skin. Went for a consult with Dr. Decherd and decided to do a tummy tuck and add in my boobs. They were going a whole new direction after breast feeding four children. I could have never imagined the results. They are amazing. No one asked if there was a procedure done, they just comment on how great I look after four children. Some get it naturally, and some get a little help! This Boost my self confidence tremendously. Yes, some say scars are battle scars but I used my body to bring four wonderful children into the world and I am thankful Dr. Decherd giving me back what I once had. More

I Look Like I Used to - 10 to 12 Years Ago - San Antonio, TX - My daughter in law and my son have both used Dr. Decherd in the past. I reviewed most doctors websites in my area, and chose him based on his videos and results. It was only later than I found out he was the same doctor my son and daughter-in-law used. I had a double procedure, facelift and tummy tuck and paid a little over 15,000. Don't know how much procedures would have been individually. My doctor, Michael Decherd was so nice. What I really appreciated was how LONG he took with my initial consult. He seemed to know exactly what I wanted, and he achieved that. Also, his nurse Heather is a living doll. Office staff have been very helpful on the phone. I have more self-confidence and think I will be more confident re-entering the workplace. More

After checking around for botox prices there was really no way i would comprimise my body for a less qualitfied technician to perform the work for me. You cant be his great prices, skill, and personality! More

Face and Brow Lift - San Antonio, TX - I looked in several doctors even look down in Mexico but once I talked to Dr. Decherd, I was sold. He seemed to really listen and spent a long time with me helping me chose the right surgery for me. His price was reasonable so I went for it. I am only on day 4, so still lots of swelling. Not much pain per se, but the discomfort is tiresome. The dr office has called me on 2 or 3 occasions just to see how I was. I am glad I chose the doctor I did. More

Getting Nervous!! - San Antonio - I'm a mother of 4 boys and have been wanting a TT since my first son was born 14 years ago! I struggled with my weight since then and even though I recently lost some weight but I still have a ways to go. I currently weigh 185 and so I am also conserned about my results. My PS said I was a good candidate (other than being overweight, I'm in good health and don't drink or smoke). My TT is scheduled for Dec. 13 (two days from today!!) and I'm starting to get really nervous :/ I've expressed to my PS how important having a symmetrical scar and hidden belly button scar is to me, hopefully this is possible in my case. I requested the pain pump on a friend's reccomendation so I'm hoping it will help. This website and all of the girls on it have been so helpful so I decided to add my own story to the mix. Please pray for me and wish me luck on Monday, I'll be posting as soon as I can. More
