MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

This doctor is pleasant when talking to him; however, he did a very poor job on my liposuction and then he abandons you refusing to do any touch ups or correct his mistakes.

Hi had lipo of my abdomen, flanks, and chest area. I wasn't that overweight but had a good amount of fat I wanted removed. Dr. Rehnke only took out 2000 cc's when I had a LOT more fat that could have been taken out. 2000 cc's is not a lot. That's fine if I didn't have it but I did. I really don't even think he took ANYTHING from my abdomen at all.

Further, I have a couple huge indentations that he won't revise. I am not being picky; many people and other doctors told me that it is very noticable.

So, Dr. Rehnke refused to do more lipo on me to remove the rest of the fat I thought I paid for him to remove, and he refused to revise the bad indentions he left on my flanks.

Dr. Rehnke is not skilled in lipo in my opinion...he is in his opinion based on his salesmanship pre-surgery...but he is not in reality. Also, Dr. Rehnke will abandon patients that he does a bad job on...so BEWARE. It's buyers beware with this doctor. Unsuspecting patients will go in to consult with him and they'll never know about me...just like I never knew about the others he's done bad jobs on and washed his hands of it prior to my surgery.

A girl I know was going for breast implants and consulted with 4 doctors. When she told me she had just consulted with the 4th doctor and it was Dr. Rehnke, I HAD to tell her, even though I had kept my procedure a secret. I felt I had to or I wouldn't have been able to live with myself had she used him with me knowing. Maybe he would have done a good job with her implants, maybe he is just bad with lipo. However, it is unlikely in my opinion, and if he is one of these doctors that will look a patient staight in the face after he did a bad job on them and tell them that he DID do a good job and refuse to do any revision...than he is not worth it for any procedure. She used another doctor and had great results.
