"First Class! I highly recommend Dr. Decherd and his staff! I was referred to Dr. Decherd by a friend who had a breast augmentation. She was very pleased with the results, I am three weeks out from a tummy tuck, breast lift, and liposuction, and I feel great. Everything went very smoothly. He was very upfront and informative about the procedure and I knew exactly what to expect. He and His staff are very 'down to earth' and I felt very comfortable. All of the ladies at the front desk are very nice and welcoming. His nurse is also top notch. She has been very helpful! I am so excited about my results! It looks great! He did an awesome job!"- T.S. / Google / Oct 16, 2015

"Dr. Decherd did an amazing job! I had been feeling miserable about my stomach. In 2013, I had my 9 1/2 pound baby via c section. I was left with a lot of loose skin. I only dreamt about having a tummy tuck until I actually started researching. I chose Dr. Decherd because he had amazing reviews and I loved all his results on his website. He explained everything to me so I understood the procedure. His staff was also very nice and helpful. I had a fantastic recovery! And I feel so confident and absolutely love my new body! Thank you Dr. Decherd! This was me at only 7 weeks post op!"- M.M. / Google / Jul 01, 2021
"Almost a year later, without a doubt, Dr. Decherd changed my life. After a 50 lb weight lost, and 30 lbs a couple years before that, my body was a wreck, an unrecoverable wreck. Dr. Decherd was recommended by my GP, and I can't thank her enough. With Dr. Decherd, you will find all the qualities you are looking for when considering plastic surgery. First, he is an ethical and decent human being. He is not there to upsale you, and get you to have surgery that really doesn't deliver the bang for the buck. Dr. Decherd is very careful to manage your expectations. I'm an older woman. He was honest about what my results would look like. I was not going to walk out of surgery looking like I was 24. But my results were better than I had hoped for. I looked the best I could imagine. Better than expected. Years of obesity were wiped away. I don't care what anyone says, I know, you cannot exercise away loose and saggy skin. I tried. I had a lot of procedures done. Dr. Decherd took time to evaluate me based on my age, general health, and giving me recovery information so we could come to a safe and mutual plan. His surgery center is in the same building as his office. It is immaculate, the staff well trained and caring, and I was well attended to. I had all the information I needed to know; what to expect during recovery. Before the surgery, I had all the meds I would need. The office and staff are very well run. They have their processes down. That makes a huge difference. You don't want to deal with people who don't care when you're having surgery. Everyone you talk to will care. I had the following surgeries, spread out over 3 surgeries, in 3 consecutive months. They were: tummy tuck and breast lift. Then lower face lift, neck lift, eyes, and skin reduction on my arms (you know, the wings?) Last surgery was skin reduction on my inner thighs. On the last surgery, I had a bit of revision to my eyes. It was no problem. What I loved, and had a hard time believing is, he cares that you are satisfied, really. The revision to my eyes was no problem, no extra cost. You also have lots of follow up visits to check your progress, and ask all the questions you will have about how your recovery is going. We all want instant results, and here is another instance of Dr. Decherd being very good at managing expectations. So it's been 9-1/2 months since the first surgery. I am having the time of my life with my new body. The most profound changes are my super flat stomach and the chin lift. Holy smokes, I wore a two piece bathing suit all this summer. (And I looked hot.) Honestly, it all came together. I feel confident wearing shorts, bathing suits, and clothes that accentuate, not hide, my body. My arms fit in blouses and my legs in pants. I can even go without a bra should I choose too. I don't have to try and adjust my chin and neck position trying to hid the layers of loose skin, when taking pictures. This is the first time in my life, since I was 15 y/o, that my body is not stopping me from joining in whatever activities and social situations I come into. This is freedom. Look at Dr. Decherd's before and after. That should convince you of his skills. Read the comments on this page. He is a talented and kind doctor."- R.L. / Google / Jun 26, 2021

Am I a Candidate for CoolTone?
CoolTone is not meant to be used as a weight loss treatment. However, it can be a great way to tone and define muscles for those who are not far away from their target weight. If regular exercise and a healthy diet have not provided the results you've been looking for, you may want to consider this noninvasive procedure. CoolTone is typically performed on the thighs, abdomen, and buttocks. It may not be right for patients with certain conditions. Our team will review your medical history and help you decide if you are an ideal candidate for this treatment.
How is CoolTone Performed?
CoolTone uses magnetic muscle stimulation to reach down into deep layers of your body in order to reach the muscle tissue. During the procedure, the CoolTone device is used to create a magnetic current that targets sections of the muscle, initiating involuntary muscle contractions that work to tone the muscles in the associated areas. In total, the procedure usually takes anywhere from 1 – 2 hours but can fluctuate, depending on the number of areas being treated.
What Results Can I Expect From CoolTone?
Most of our patients are able to immediately return to their daily life as soon as the treatment has concluded. In many cases, there is absolutely no downtime associated with the procedure. Typically, most patients begin to enjoy visible results within 4 – 8 sessions and sometimes as little as three weeks. The most significant results are usually reported around 2 – 4 months after your final procedure.
How much does CoolTone cost?
The total cost of CoolTone will vary from patient to patient, depending on a wide number of factors, including the number of areas being treated, the number of sessions, and the current state of the body. During your initial consultation, Dr. Decherd will analyze your body and create a custom treatment plan, which will break down the entire process, including a cost estimate.
How long do CoolTone results last?
Results from CoolTone can be seen almost immediately, though final results can take a few months until they are visible. These results are not permanent but can last for six months, and in some cases, even longer. To maintain these results, we usually recommend scheduling regular maintenance sessions every few months.
Does CoolTone hurt?
Though CoolTone is not usually described as painful, like the sensation of a normal workout, it can feel a bit uncomfortable. However, most patients are able to adjust to the sensation within a few minutes and even carry on a conversation throughout the length of their session.
