I was treated like I was the only patient. They were very honest, caring and respectful. They do not rush you and make sure to take the time to answer all my questions. I would recommend this practice because of how great they treated me. I was treated like a family member, not like “just another surgery.” – HK

I have used this office several times for several procedures and I am always satisfied. All the staff are professional, friendly, accessible, and helpful. I always receive such personal care, i.e., addressing my individual issues. The facility is excellent too! – CM

Going into this decision, I had so many questions and uncertainties. Not only in regards to whether or not I would be happy with the way I look after all was said and done, but if the outcome would really be worth going under the knife and the whole recovery process that followed. As someone who has always pushed my body to physical limits as a competitive athlete, I wanted to make absolutely sure it was the right move for me and that the surgery would not affect my ability to continue to do the things I love every day. Dr. Schlechter was there for me personally from the moment I stepped in for a consultation. Everything from my pre-surgery concerns to my questions during recovery would always receive quick responses and the assurance I needed to feel at ease with any routine aches or pains I experienced. He never left me waiting or worrying and would find time to see me immediately, even if was simply to calm my nerves about something small. He truly cared about my health and took whatever action necessary to alleviate all the stresses involved in a serious surgery. Even long after my procedure, as I am back to playing soccer and running every day, he is still available whenever I need him, as a constant reminder that I definitely made the right choice of plastic surgeon. I also can’t forget to mention that I LOVE my results and feel awesome. I have zero regrets in my decision and have Dr. Schlechter’s expertise, attentiveness and compassion to thank for it all. – NM

After 15 years of being a patient of Dr. Schlechter’s, I can still always depend on a staff’s warm and friendly greeting and a doctor’s honest advice and exceptional care. Over a 15 year period, I’ve had several, surgical, cosmetic procedures and various skin treatments in his luxurious, medical spa. Dr. Schlechter’s helpfulness, knowledge, and aesthetic skills have always given me the confidence of outstanding, natural, younger looking results. From consultation to recovery, Dr. Schlechter provides honest, helpful advice to excellent, post surgery care. He and his staff are committed to upholding a standard of excellence while offering men and women the positive plastic surgery experience they deserve. Choosing your surgeon is a critical decision and after 15yrs of exceptional results and outstanding care, I can only hope that my opinion gives Dr. Schlechter the credit he so deserves. His surgical expertise and friendly staff are second to none. Thank you, Dr. Schlechter, for all you’ve done! – A very happy woman

Wish I found him sooner. – VS

I have been a patient of Dr. Schlechter’s for over five years. He has performed multiple procedures on my face to correct acne scarring. The results I have seen are amazing. I have had laser treatments and needling done on my face, many moles removed from various areas and some liposuction to my hips and thighs. He and his staff are professional, knowledgeable and personable. I would recommend Dr. Schlechter and the Spa at Spring Ridge to anyone. – CS

Dr. Schlechter is the consummate professional with a wonderful, caring staff. – MM


Dr. Schlechter is great and very personable! – JB


I just want to thank Dr. Schlechter and all who work in the office for the wonderful job they did with my son. Not only did you accommodate us when our options were limited, all of your staff went out of their way to give him the best possible experience a 6 year old could have after being bit in the face by a dog. This over the top care allowed us to avoid an extra and unnecessary trip and procedure. We cannot thank you enough.– DS

At 44, I was tired of looking tired. I opted to have Dr. Schlechter perform a lower blepharoplasty and am thrilled beyond belief at the results! He is truly a gifted plastic surgeon, as his technique is so developed that after only one week post op, I had barely any evidence of having had work done. Amazing. Additionally, the office staff is very attentive and approachable; they really create an atmosphere of comfort their patients. – JC

I was very pleased with the results of my facelift surgery, and I found the whole experience stress free. – PM

I am extremely pleased with the results of my face and neck lift! I told Dr. Schlechter that I wanted a natural look, and that is exactly what I got. Dr. Schlechter, in addition to being an excellent surgeon, has a calm, reassuring manner and a very friendly and professional staff. – A happy patient

Everyone in the office always makes you feel welcomed and special. Communication is good…all questions are answered. My face lift surgery went great, and my expectations were met. I would definitely recommend Dr. Schlechter to anyone of my friends’ family and whoever!! Thank you again for giving my spirit of confidence a lift. – SB

Dr. Schlechter and his staff are experts, professionals, and friendly. I felt I could contact him or the staff at any time with questions or concerns before and after my facelift and rhinoplasty. The day of the procedure, I was made to feel very comfortable and prepared. The surgery went well, and I am happy with my results. – DL, a very pleased patient

I have had two procedures done by Dr. Schlechter, and I am very pleased. I had some minor liposuction on my chin and most recently he did a revision on a botched rhinoplasty that I had done several years ago by another plastic surgeon. While I was very nervous to have my nose worked on again after my previous bad experience with a rhinoplasty, Dr. Schlechter was great with communicating to me how he could help me, and I felt very confident. I’m glad I made the decision to have him do the surgery because he did a beautiful job. Not only are he and his staff very friendly and warm, but they make the whole surgical experience as comfortable as possible. The anesthesiologist is great as well. I can’t say enough how happy I am with not only how I was treated as a patient but for the excellent results! I highly recommend Dr. Schlechter. – CE

Dr. Benjamin Schlechter and staff did an amazing job throughout the entire process, and I could not be more pleased with the results of my rhinoplasty. – RH

Extremely satisfied with the overall outcome of my rhinoplasty with Dr. Schlechter. I will definitely be returning for more fixes in the future! Friendly staff and high-class surgeon!! – TH

I went to see Dr. Schlechter for a rhinoplasty during the Summer of 2012. Since it was a big step for me, I was apprehensive at first. After visiting with multiple plastic surgeons, I am so happy that I decided to schedule the surgery with Dr. Schlechter. He has a great reputation in the community and every single person in his office is so friendly and professional. Everyone took the time to answer my questions and address all of my concerns. The day of surgery can be nerve-wracking, but thanks to Dr. Schlechter and his staff, they made it a positive experience. Everyone made me feel like family; even the anesthesiologist took time beforehand to explain everything in detail which for me, made all the difference in the world. He was very kind and professional. Even the surgery suite is designed to make the patient feel comfortable. The best part was I had no side-effects following surgery, which made recovery even better. Even now, long after the surgery, Dr. Schlechter and his staff are still concerned for my well-being and always take their time with me whether it is over the phone or in person. I cannot thank them enough for how they are, and I absolutely recommend them if you are considering surgery. Last, but not least, I am thrilled with the results! I look so natural – like I never even had surgery on my nose. I am much more confident and comfortable out in the world. You cannot put a price on confidence. I understand that each rhinoplasty is unique, and everyone is different, but the recovery time wasn’t bad at all. The only discomfort I experienced was the first few days before the packing came out. There was pain, but it wasn’t unbearable. Personally, I found braces on my teeth to be a much worse experience. The swelling wasn’t bad either, and it continues to subside, six weeks after my surgery. Again, depending on the individual, it can take up to eight months to see the final results. I cannot thank Dr. Schlechter and his team enough for the professionalism and compassion I experienced! They certainly are a perfect “10.” – JM

Just a quick line to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the PrecisionTx I had. The treatment I received was excellent. The procedure was relatively painless, the recovery time was extremely short, and the results are terrific. Who could ask for more??!! A big thank you to Dr. Schlechter and the entire staff for creating such a safe and comfortable environment. – FM

The PrecisionTx procedure was a little more intense than what I thought it would be, but I can see the results improving each day. I am glad I had it done and would recommend the procedure. – MC

Dr. Benjamin Schlechter and his excellent office & surgical team are extremely knowledgeable in every procedure available at his center for plastic surgery. I have had numerous elective surgeries performed over the past decade, as well as acquaintances of mine. All employees make you feel welcome and are pleasant and helpful. Lynne Reddington is by far one of the kindest, patient persons I have had the pleasure of dealing with in whatever I am seeking to have done. She is well trained and wonderfully personable, whether she is contacting you via phone or sitting in her office. Dr. Schlechter is a kind, caring surgeon that excels in his field! He takes his time to describe what to expect, with final results that he details to perfection. I know many that have chosen Dr. Schlechter as their plastic surgeon over well-known celebrity doctors in New York & Beverly Hills. My thanks to Dr. Schlechter & staff for years of giving me the confidence that I had chosen and still continue to know and be assured that I am in great hands. – SK

Overall a great experience with terrific results. The PrecisionTx surgery experience was smooth and virtually painless. – LI

Thanks dude you’re the best!!!!!! My ears look so much better! From your favorite patient 🙂 – NF (12-year-old patient)


Dr. Schlechter is very friendly—–makes you feel at home. Very happy with my surgery. – CW

Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Dr. Schlechter and his wonderful staff went above and beyond my expectations. They all made me feel so comfortable and my visits were by far better than any doctor I have ever been to. They knew I was in a hurry to have my breast implant surgery done and even squeezed me in the same week as my consultation. I will be using them for future procedures. THANKS, DOC! – NB

Overall experience was excellent, and I would highly recommend Dr. Schlechter if you are considering a breast augmentation. I cannot think of anything better or different that he or his staff could have done to make the experience better. He listened, shared his thoughts, and guided me to make an informed decision on the size, type, etc. I would recommend that you at least see him for a free consultation if you are considering the procedure to see how he and his staff stack up to other doctors in the area. Hands down, he was the doctor of my choice for this surgery. – A very satisfied patient

The wait times are short. The staff is great, and all have wonderful bedside manner, and so does Dr. Schlechter. The atmosphere in the waiting room is always comfortable, and the patient rooms are always kept clean and well maintained. I have enjoyed each and every visit I have had. I had a breast augmentation here, and it turned out wonderful. It is the best boob job that any of my friends said they had ever seen. – JD

Dr. Schlechter made sure every single question I had about a breast lift was answered, and his staff is always available if I think of any more questions I want to be answered. Their staff is the most friendly, welcoming staff I’ve ever dealt with. They are so warm and professional, and make the whole experience that much better. I was so impressed with the progress I was able to make after visiting them. All my questions were answered, and I feel a lot more confident and hopeful about the future. – AS

Dr. Schlechter is fantastic! I love the results of my breast augmentation and lift! Every time I go there, I receive one on one, individualized attention. The staff is friendly and caring and very accommodating. I would recommend Dr. Schlechter to anyone seeking plastic surgery services! – DF

I had a breast lift and breast augmentation performed by Dr. Schlechter. He did an amazing job, and I am very pleased. He and his staff are very professional and friendly. He is a competent physician who knows what he is doing and actually takes the time to listen to his patients’ concerns and questions. As a nurse working with physicians daily, I do not see that often. I would highly recommend this physician and the practice to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. – TB

Spring Ridge Plastic Surgery has always been kind, professional, patient, and understanding and made me feel at ease when making decisions on treatment and beyond. I am extremely pleased with my breast reduction. – KP

To the staff at Spring Ridge Plastic Surgery, I am writing to thank each of you for your care and professionalism I received while under your care! At 45 years old, I was forced with the daunting task of having a medically necessary breast reduction. From the moment I made my initial phone call to schedule my consultation, the entire staff assured me that everything would be okay and I would receive the best care and treatment available. At my initial consult Dr. Schlechter encouraged me and reassured me I would be okay! He also would be able to make my quality of life improve. Dr. Schlechter provided me with all the necessary information and potential risks associated with this procedure enabling me the opportunity to make an educated decision to proceed with the surgery. Surgery went well and surpassed my expectations! With its success came the reality of the scars that come following a procedure such as this one. At my post operative appointment, Dr. Schlechter reassured me once again that this too would improve… He was right! I am now nearly 6 months into recovery…I could not be happier!!! Dr. Schlechter is a brilliant and compassionate surgeon! Thanks to Dr. Schlechter and his staff for improving my quality of life!– Karen

I was very pleased with how I was treated by Dr. Schlechter and his staff. I had some physical limitations unrelated to my breast implant explantation and breast revision surgery done by Dr. Schlechter, and both he and his staff did everything they could to accommodate me. I was treated in a respectful, confidential manner with every concern of mine addressed perfectly. My experience far exceeded my expectations and exceeded my experiences with most other medical facilities. – KK

Dr. Schlechter is wonderful and caring. I am blessed to have him as my doctor to care for me during my battle with breast cancer. – CP

I had RT and simple mastectomy with immediate reconstruction with tissue expansion. Dr. Schlechter took his time to explain procedure staying after hours to see me and after my mastectomy and all follow up visits and surgery. Could not have had a better Dr on my case! – Anonymous

A very professional group that certainly made a tough situation pleasant. From pre-surgery thru surgery and therapy, you have my praise for a job well done. Thanks! – CR




I feel beautiful. This is something l have always wanted to do this, and finally did. The and breast augmentation has been amazing. I look like l did in my early thirties. My clothes fit better. I actually am happy to go into a dressing room and look in the mirror. Doing this has been wonderful for my self-esteem. Friends say l look happier, and one asked if l was in love, lol! This experience has been wonderful from beginning to end. I loved the surgical experience; every effort was made for my comfort and satisfaction. It is incredible to have washboard abs. Dr. Schlechter and his staff are warm and caring. Anyone living within two hours of here shouldn’t even consider any other facility. I have only the highest praise and greatest satisfaction. – DB

Staff was excellent. Results were fabulous! The overall experience was very well managed and expectations were clear. Doctor Schlechter was lovely and helped me understand the benefits and risks of the different procedures involved in a Mommy Makeover. – SM

I love my “Body by Ben!” After losing all of my baby weight (77 pounds), I looked a lot like a Shar-Pei puppy. Dr. Schlechter tucked, implanted, and lifted me back to what I looked like before I ever had kids. – LC


I am very pleased with the tummy tuck results, and I would do it all over again. As I explained in the initial consultation meeting, I have been self-conscious for years and hated to wear anything that was form fitting. Everyone that I have been in contact with in the office has been very helpful and pleasant. Thank you very much. – FC

I had a full abdominoplasty and had a phenomenal experience. I feel like a million bucks. Best thing I ever did. Dr. Schlechter was so kind and patient. My only regret was that I didn’t do it sooner! – MS

I am extremely happy with the results of my abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)! Dr. S is an awesome surgeon with great bedside manners. His staff is very warm, welcoming and very courteous. I look forward to seeing them again in the near future. I highly recommend him, you will not regret your decision to have him care for your surgical needs. – RW

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Schlechter and his staff. I was nervous to go, and they made me feel very comfortable on arrival! Office staff was very private with my information. The nurse that took me back gave me some brief information so I would know what to expect and a pamphlet to look over. Dr. Schlechter was very professional and asked some questions about my reason for the visit, and I explained my case. He was very professional! After review, I was accepted to have surgery. The office was great in giving out my information and the next steps. The facility for surgery was great, and the people were very NICE and helpful. My husband was with me during the whole prep time and then in recovery. My surgery went fine. I was called to see how I was doing and made my follow up visit. I have one more follow-up visit. I would highly recommend Dr. Schlechter to anyone looking for surgery! P.S. the spa was great as well. Right timing – had a free facial. Loved it! – A Happy Patient!

I am very pleased with the quality of care I received at Dr. Schlechter’s office. He did both my tummy tuck and my brachioplasty. I think the one thing that sets his practice apart from the rest is that you actually see him, not a nurse or assistant. Dr. Schlechter meets with you from consult to pre-op to post-op, making sure you are happy with the results!!!! – AM

Honestly, after having 2 kids ten years apart, I felt so uncomfortable. My breasts were very saggy, no matter what I did, I couldn’t get rid of the belly pouch. When I came to Dr. Schlechter for a breast augmentation, and I heard that I could get rid of it with a tummy tuck, I didn’t know what to do. It was a mixture of “oh my gosh! Finally” & “but that’s who I am”. I knew I’d never be happy with my stomach. I went for it. Not only did Dr. Schlechter give me a good price, he gave me my confidence back. Confidence I haven’t had since I was 18. I can wear bikini tops. I can wear tight shirts without pulling them out when I sit so my gut doesn’t show. I was able to get an awesome tattoo over my scar, you can’t even see it. My stretch marks are all but gone. I love how I look. I’m not perfect, I’ll never be, but I’m not ashamed anymore. I can proudly walk around. I may not look good to some, but knowing how I looked before vs now, I look good to me. That feeling is what motivated me. – HF

I had liposuction. I had a great experience and a terrific result. Dr. Schlechter is superb and is an artist. I recommend him without reservation to anyone desiring his services. His office is amazing. It was actually a pleasure to have surgery. – A pleased patient

I definitely would recommend this practice for cosmetic surgery. Dr. Schlechter went above and beyond for me. Even though I am only six weeks into my liposuction recovery, I am impressed with my outcome. – KK

Fantastic staff whose kind words and gentle hands made the Smartlipo experience easy. Dr. Schlechter is excellent at his job, and the results have been exactly as he predicted and what I wanted. I give my highest recommendation. – KW

I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience! Dr. Schlechter performed Smartlipo on my hips, and I am extremely happy with my results. He took the time to explain the procedure, and I felt very comfortable with him. Not only is Dr. Schlechter THE BEST, but his staff was amazing also! – JF

Since I had the Smartlipo, I feel great!!! Love my new body!!! – DR

I had my upper arms done, and I am so very happy with the results! My treatment before, during, and after my procedure was above excellent! You cared! I would recommend Dr. Schlechter to everyone; you are all great! – DB

Dr. Schlechter sculpted my arms so beautifully! I love wearing sleeveless dresses to show off my sexy arms. Thank you, Dr. Schlechter! – LC

I had a bilateral brachioplasty (arm lift/ skin removal) performed by Dr. Schlechter on 4/2/11. I could not be more thrilled with the outcome. I hold Dr. Schlechter about 1/4″ below God in the miracles he can perform! It is not a real common surgery due to the large incisions, and I was very torn about doing it, spending the money, etc. His staff made me feel totally comfortable. I had faxed over a list of many questions prior to my pre-op, and Dr. Schlechter took the time to hand-write the answers for me; it impressed me that he didn’t just have a nurse answer them. I was referred to him by my OB/GYN I was bent on going to NYC to a surgeon who had performed many of these surgeries. I am so glad I listened and came to Dr. Schlechter. He has a wonderful bedside manner, he fully listens to you and what you want as the outcome, and he lets you know if it is a realistic expectation! When I returned two days after surgery, and he unwrapped me, I could not believe my arms. Even with the swelling and bruising still evident, the results were amazing I could not stop crying tears of joy! As I have lost over 100 pounds, and I am not quite at goal, I fully plan on him doing the TT and BL that I desire once at goal! I would let him operate with a butter knife. He is a remarkably skilled surgeon with a real personality who strives to make the patient happy! The other plus was his totally sterile facility and great anesthesia nurse; I didn’t even have a bruise from the IV, no after puking, and no pain! And never had to take the prescribed pain medicine!!! I don’t know how he does a massive surgery and there is no pain???? The whole experience was just way better than I could imagine. I have no idea how he does it, but I adore him and feel really blessed that here in Reading, PA we have such a gifted and wonderful surgeon! One day he was running late, but that is to be expected – if I were having an emergency complication I would want him to attend to me first, so can’t say that is a bad thing! He is obviously busy and popular for a reason—quality work! I always have a list of questions, and he never seems like he is in a hurry to rush you out; he answers every weird question I throw at him!!!! Also having the spa, he is able to offer aftercare for scar management that others are not in a position to offer! I would say whatever the procedure you seek, make sure to schedule a consult, you will not be disappointed! I am one week out and have no regrets. I know he will help these scars heal, and I am going to be fabulous for my wedding in 6 months! This was the best money I ever spent on me, and I have no regrets!!!!!! – AM

Dr. Schlechter and his staff were terrific. I called many times with questions that were always answered without making me feel like a bother. Dr. Schlechter did a fabulous job on my tummy tuck. I am very pleased with my whole experience. – DL

I went to see Dr. Schlechter after battling with some insecurities about my large labia for years. I was filled with anxiety, but after meeting him I was at ease and immediately I knew I had chosen the right place. Staff and Dr. will exceed your expectations. – A very satisfied patient

I came from out-of-state for Dr. Schlechter because I had done so much research to find the most experienced, highest rated plastic surgeon that performs labiaplasty. I am so glad I did. I can’t imagine ever going to anyone else for such a delicate procedure. – KC

Very gentle with my amputation post-op. – ZM


Excellent experience! My skin is flawless! Would recommend Dr. Schlechter to anyone – All my friends… And I have! – CM

I could not be any happier with my experience with Dr. Schlechter. I have been a patient for over ten years and trust him completely. Dr. Schlechter is always approachable and is never too busy to answer my questions about what he can do to help me maintain a fresh face. I am a regular Botox and Juvederm patient. What I love most is that Dr. Schlechter’s skill with injections always keeps my wrinkles at bay yet allows me to maintain facial expressions. I am ever so pleased. The staff is professional and accommodating. Never would I dream of trusting anyone else for my injections. When people say they get their Botox from their dermatologist or dentist, I am baffled as to why they would allow anyone other than a plastic surgeon to inject them. Not only do I go to a plastic surgeon for my injections, but I also go to the best plastic surgeon ever! – LR

I would like to say again how wonderful my experience has been meeting Dr. Schlechter and having him take care of my little issues! I don’t look tired anymore…and I feel he has a great understanding of Sculptra, Juvederm, and Botox and their many uses! – NM

Great experience for Botox; exactly what I asked for. – JM

I Love Dr. Schlechter. Feel very comfortable when I come for my Botox appointments. – CE

Doc is great!!! No muss, no fuss, and fantastic results. Love it!!! – A satisfied Botox patient

I cannot say enough about the professionalism and friendliness of Dr. Schlechter and his entire staff! I will always highly recommend to anyone wanting Botox and Juvederm. – PL

Dr. Schlechter is the best! I would recommend him to all who desire a skilled a cosmetic surgeon for Botox. – DM

Dr. S always does a great job with my Botox! – LS

I also a Botox and Juvederm patient who has complete trust and faith in Dr. Schlechter’s skills with injectable fillers. – LC

Since my upper blepharoplasty, my eyes match my active, busy lifestyle, and I don’t look tired anymore! – NM

Hand Surgery

Dear Dr. Schlechter, Thank you for the expertise in surgery you performed on our son Douglass. Those fingers had to be a true challenge, but we are extremely grateful that you were able to reattach them. We had him evaluated at the Phila Hand Ctr. and they have assured him he will have functional use of all the fingers (not normal) but we are pleased with that. Because of the resources available there, he will continue his care there and it will probably take 1 yr. But, without your help–and the Phila. surgeon assured us that his care at Reading was on target–we wouldn’t have the possibilities we do! Thank you! – Ken and Lorraine
