I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Dr. Smartt and the entire team at the Bucky Body Center. Everyone is incredibly welcoming and the quality of care is amazing. Highly, highly recommend the Bucky Body Center to anyone wanting to look and feel their best!

Wow wow wow—I couldn’t be happier with my experience at the Bucky Body Center I had the most incredible massage with Melissa that released so much tension it was unlike any other massage I’ve had. I also had a coolscupting treatment followed by the compression suit and I left feeling better than ever.

The center is stunning, modern, and luxurious. The nurses and practice staff are incredibly knowledgeable, professional and kind. I love Dr. Bucky’s holistic approach to the treatments and technology in the center, I can’t wait to go back!

There are not enough words to express my gratitude to the team at Bucky Body Center. Kudos to Dr. Bucky for recruiting the best team in the Philadelphia area! I was skeptical of beginning my journey at Bucky Body Center not knowing whether the treatments would be the answer to many years of suffering from chronic lower back/SI joint and hip pain that still lingered post arthroscopic hip labral repair. After years of opting for just another injection, which only masked the pain I was suffering from, and continued build-up of inflammation, I opted to try manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) massage treatments with Sheila only hoping for the best. Let me just say, I immediately felt the benefits of Sheila’s treatments including reduced inflammation in my hip joint, increased mobility/flexibility throughout my joints and overall wellness through the release of toxins and the “detoxifying” effects that are often the most wanted results of MLD. Sheila is conscious of the time she has with you and ensures 100% of the time is spent making you feel the best version of you. No one treatment with Sheila is the same. We evaluate prior to each session how my body reacted to the previous treatment(s) in conjunction with how my body feels post-everyday activity/training (more to come here!) to game plan on the most effective sequence for that days treatment. Her expertise and precision in this field makes her one of the best!

Bucky Body Center also has one of (what I think) is the best cryotherapy chambers to offer to its clients. When beginning MLD with Sheila I opted to add-on the cryotherapy treatments post-massage, which I believe only intensifies the benefits of MLD and promotes a quicker response to the treatments. I would highly recommend this to anyone seeing Sheila to add cryotherapy to aid in your recovery from post-orthopedic surgeries or injuries.

It only took a few months (which is not long considering the length of time I’ve been dealing with my aches and pains) for me to feel my body was restored and capable of functioning day-to-day with minimal pain. However, Sheila had recommended that in order to take things to the next level and continue my upward recovery trend, I work with Andrew who specializes in functional patterns trainings at Bucky Body Center. From our first session together until now, Andrew continues to amaze me at his in-depth knowledge of how our muscles and joints work in conjunction with one another and also his ability to evaluate the way you move to identify potential issues within our own structures that may be the root of our pain. Andrew’s extensive knowledge on this form of training (which is unlike anything I have done before) guides you through training sessions specific to your body and its needs (and yes, he makes just breathing seem like the hardest thing to do!) to strengthen areas of weakness or those where engagement is non-existent, enabling your body to learn how it “should” move and what that feels like in the act of doing so.

Now several months into functional patterns training with Andrew followed by weekly treatments with Sheila, I wake up most days with very little to no lower back/SI joint/glute/hip pain. This is something that I did not think was feasible after years and years of constant pain. I cannot thank Andrew and Sheila enough for being the “A-team” I needed to revive my body from years of pain and endure the active lifestyle I choose to live pain-free.

I recently had a lymphoma removed.

The surgery went very well. I’m very pleased with the result. From the consultation appointment through the surgery, everyone made me feel comfortable. Everything was thoroughly explained. Dr. Smartt was awesome. Great chairside manner. Luke provided great customer service checking on me pre and post surgery. Majo was very friendly and welcoming. I had a great experience!!

I had an amazing massage therapy session with Melissa. She knew how to relieve the tension and knots on my back, neck and shoulders. I also enjoyed the “red light” prior to my massage that helped my body relax, thanks to Majo. This was an incredible experience and a good way to end a long day after work. Thank you so much Melissa and Majo!

From start to finish the entire team working in this beautiful facility have been just wonderful! I had bodytite done on my flanks only a few days ago with Dr. Smart and all I can say is WOW! I’m already loving my results! Dr. Smart took the time, addressed all of my questions and concerns and most of all DELIVERED!! Dr. Smart is truly an artist and I recommend if you’re considering body contouring , he’s your guy! I also want to mention Nurse Luke as he’s been incredible pre and post procedure, he genuinely cares and it shows. I highly recommend Bucky Body Center!!

Shiela, an LMT, does an amazing lymphatic drainage massage. I’ve been seeing her at least once a month (when I overindulge sometimes 2x) since they’ve opened. She also incorporates small cupping! One of my favorite things about it is her genuine, caring personality. Shiela helps you understand what she’s doing, why and how your body is benefiting from it. I do the “Shape Shifter”, which includes the compression suite for 40 minutes directly after the massage.

Highly recommenced, along with the cryo therapy and red light bed!

I had heard great things about Bucky’s Body Center and had been wanting to try the cryotherapy treatment. However I was a little nervous about it! Luckily, the spa technician Majo stepped in and made me feel incredibly comfortable through the entire process, checking in with me throughout. She was a pleasure to spend time with and put me totally at ease. I’d recommend Bucky’s Body Center to anyone looking for a comfortable experience with lovely staff—and the cryotherapy—definitely worth the freezing temps. It was a thrill.

Five stars is not enough! This is my second experience with Dr. Smartt and his team, and they continue to exceed my expectations. The pre-procedure communication and planning was genuine and personalized. The day of my procedure was smooth and comfortable, as each step was explained to me in advance. My recovery was quicker than expected and the entire team at BBC treated me like family. The nurses, therapists and admin staff are all talented professionals who give great care and honest feedback. My results are fantastic, while also being natural and not overly done. My only regret is that I didn’t do this sooner.

I had the opportunity to attend a special wellness event at Bucky Body Center and experience a massage with Melissa Gasson. She is a licensed massage therapist and entrepreneur who is the founder of Healed NYC. Her talents have earned her a world-class slew of clients that include professional athletes and celebrities. With this exclusivity in mind, it’s no wonder that Bucky Body Center would opt to partner with her to provide amazing relief and relaxation bodywork to their clients!

This was my first experience with the Bucky Body Center, but it will definitely not be my last! The facility is easy to find and designed beautifully. It has an open and airy type of environment, which is immediately both soothing and energizing! My primary contact to set this appointment was Majo Monroy, who is the Center Coordinator. She quite literally redefines customer service! She is warm, welcoming, knowledgeable, efficient, and a wonderful advocate for what the center can do to help you in your wellness journey. There were additional practitioners and staff there on the day of my appointment who were equally friendly and engaging!

I would recommend the BBC to anyone who is interested in exploring their options in the wellness world. The possibilities seem endless here!

The entire team here is amazing! I have been to the office in Washington Square for fillers, so when they mentioned their new body center in rittenhouse square for a procedure I was considering, I knew I was in great hands.

From the second I decided to make a consult, Majo and Karen were absolutely amazing. They answered questions, responded quickly and connected me with Luke for a pre-consult conversation. When I came in for the in-person consult, the facility was as expected: extremely clean, modern and equipped with the best technology and team, for any non-OR procedure you may be considering.

Even after the appointment, I had some additional questions so Majo scheduled a call with Dr. Smart who was extremely patient and understanding. He answered all my questions and left no doubt that I was ready for the next step.

The day of my procedure everything went smoother than I could have expected. Luke greeted me and got me set up, while Majo helped my parents get situated in another room so they could comfortably wait for me to be done. I was in and out within 2 hours! While I know every patient is different for recovery, I have to say mine was beyond my expectations. I had the procedure on Thursday and was able to join my family for Easter on Sunday, without my extended family even knowing!

If you’re considering any kind of cosmetic procedures there is only one place you should be going in the Northeast – Bucky’s Body Center. Best money you’ll ever spend.

Thanks again to the entire team!

SIMPLY AMAZING RESULTS! I have been working with Sheila at the Bucky Body Center for the past 6 months to help address limited mobility in my knees due to arthritis. Sheila’s approach of combining manual lymphatic drainage massage, structural techniques, cupping, and red lightstim therapy has produced incredible results! The constant aching has disappeared, my range of motion has improved, stairs are no longer a challenge and the swelling in my knees is gone. Shelia is giving me a level of relief that even my doctors could not achieve. I HIGHLY recommend Sheila!

Going into my procedure, I was concerned about undergoing a surgery while awake, even a minimally invasive one; those concerns turned out to be unfounded. The Body Center did a great job getting pre-op medications to me by mail and called many times before the day of the procedure to answer my questions and ensure I was ready to move forward. On the day of my surgery the care and facility were both phenomenal. The procedure itself ended up being a total non-event: it was quickly performed by friendly professionals with a level of discomfort that was comparable to a stubbed toe. The office called me the next day to check on my recovery and, even though I reported no complications, the surgeon followed up not long after for a second check in. I was back to work minutes after the procedure ended (literally, not figuratively) and am glad that I didn’t have to undergo the disruption and risk of anesthesia. And, maybe most importantly, I’m pleased with the results, which have exceeded my expectations. All in all I would strongly recommend the Body Center to those considering procedures it offers.

The ENTIRE experience with Dr. Bucky and his staff has been above and beyond my expectations which were already very high as he is regarded as one of the best plastic surgeons in the country. I had lots of questions at each stage of the process and every person I came across spent all of the time I needed. I never felt rushed or like “just another client” coming through the door. Dr. Bucky, his staff, and the surgical team were able to make the experience as easy and seamless as possible. Coordinating with Erin couldn’t have been simpler. Katie is a phenomenal nurse who always puts me at ease. Kate was so much fun and comfortable to be with the first night I stayed at the Ritz and Sheila performed fantastic post lymphatic massages.

Best of all, I love the result! I now look as young and vibrant as I feel inside. I look natural, happy and rested.

Thanks!!!

This is my first time ever writing a review, and it is well deserved. This was also my first plastic surgery experience and it was amazing. The first thing to note was the ease of scheduling, they were very flexible and accommodating to my work schedule. Majo was amazing at setting me up with Simone, who scheduled all of my pre and post-op appointments. Luke, my nurse was amazing, he answered all of my questions and gave me answers to questions I didn’t even know I had! He called several times to make sure I was prepared and comfortable. The facility was amazing, I felt like I was at a spa. I had no pain with my procedure( I am a baby when it comes to pain, very low tolerance). I had Bodytite and liposuction to both arms. The pre-procedure relaxation room was well thought out, as it did the trick. Dr. Smartt explained everything to me step by step during the procedure. I am not even a week post-op and I have received several follow-up phone calls, text messages, and video messages. I would definitely recommend the Bucky Body center if you are on the fence reach out to me. I will definitely be back for more work. I may even be a lifer there. The team was excellent, I couldn’t have asked for more.

My experience here was great. I got the Miradry procedure done with Luke and I am sooo satisfied with the results. I had hyperhydrosis for years and this procedure was life changing. I now have little to no sweat and I don’t have to wear deodorant at all. Its been a little over 3 weeks since I had the procedure done and I feel like my underarms are completely healed. The office is beautiful, clean, and in a great location. Luke was amazing. He was very professional and there if I had any questions after the procedure. If I had to do it all over again I would!
