Laser Eye Surgery
He performed Advanced Surface Ablation (ASA) on me last year. Both he and his office were very helpful and explained everything and made me feel at ease with the procedure and even had me laughing at myself about being so vain about not wearing eye makeup for two weeks (in my defense- it was the 2 weeks prior to Christmas, so it was tough)and did a great job at doing what I wanted done to avoid having to read with bifocals, as some doctors do. He did one eye for up close and one eye for far. He was very likable and knows his "stuff".

Dr. Ritacca is a great plastic surgeon. I went for a syringe of Juvederm to be added to my lips. Dr. Ritacca was very honest with me and worked very quickly and efficiently. He ‘s also got a real talent and eye for surgery, before starting my injections he said one side of my lip was fuller than the other and he corrected this. He also offered to use some filler in my acne scarring, at the time I declined but wish I didn't. At the end I was so happy with the overall result. Dr. Ritacca’s prices also won’t break the bank, they run specials throughout the year and have an e-mail list. I will be going back.
