Dr. Fasching performed a torsoplasty, liposuction, and fat grafting from my back to my butt on une 19, 2009. I am thrilled with the results! He did an excellent job on the procedure, providing a very low scar line front and back and almost magically transforming my sad saggy backside into a butt that is presentable in a bikini!

I met with him about 2 months prior to my surgery and he spent a good deal of time talking to me about the tummy tuck that I originally consulted him about, plus a possible breast lift and/or augmentation.

I ended up scheduling a full tummy tuck and breast augmentation. After thinking it over some more I decided against the BA and planned on the FTT only. In the meantime I lost some more weight which caused additional sagging skin on my backside, so when I met with Dr. F for my pre-op appt I asked what he could do about that. Even though he hadn't planned to, and this wasn't scheduled into my visit, he spent as much time as I needed describing my options and helping me decide on a full torsoplasty w/FG.

Again I had second thoughts! This was less than a week before surgery, and I called his office and asked to see more before and after pictures of this specific procedure. His nurse took the time to go through their database and find more pictures for me, then scheduled an appt for me to come in and view them.

I mention all of that because I think it is remarkable how patient and available they were, even before I had paid anything!

As for the surgery center, it was clean and well staffed. I've had several surgeries at local hospitals in the past few years, and didn't feel that the facility or care at West Health was in any way inferior to the care I received at those hospitals.

I had a follow-up visit with Dr. F at his office the morning after my surgery, and again 6 days after, and he met with me personally both times to inspect my incisions.

Again, this is the sort of care I expected and feel comfortable with, and would recommend Dr. Fasching to my family and friends.
