Wish I Knew Sooner - Bethesda, MD

I did my research before I choose this surgeon...who has over 23 years of experience.

BBL with VASER in DC FEB 6

The wait time for Dr. Richards when I scheduled my surgery Jan 26, was april or may. However, when I explained to him that I really wanted to get it done before my husband got back home from military training he got me a spot for the OR room for Feb 6. His staff was super nice and always answered my questions no matter how small they were. They were never once snobbish, just very smiley, and they looked like the really did love their job of helping others!

Botox Treatment - Day One - Mclean, VA

I can't say enough good things about Dr Richards! I started with Restylane over 5 years ago and have been coming back ever since. The office staff are also very friendly and welcoming at both locations.

Belly Fat Be Gone - Bethesda, MD

Dr. Richards was very personal along with his staff. He was professional and friendly during, before and after my procedure. He gave me his honest opinion when I was unsure of any procedure and realistic answers regarding my down time. Glad I did the proper research before I decided to do the surgery which made me feel more confident with my outcome.

S Lift, Fraxel, and Liposuction - Bethesda, MD

Dr Richards listened to my concerns about my appearance. I told him that my face was sagging and I wanted improvement. He explained his suggestions and how the procedures are done. I felt Dr Richards could improve and soften my face. He subtlety turned back the clock on my face. Only close confidants know about my procedures. In time when the healing is complete, people will be sure I have lost weight or improved my nutrition.

Fantastic Experience -Mclean, VA

I cannot thank Dr. Richards enough for the job well done. I had a fantastic experience with the practice from the beginning. The thing that stuck out to me the most was how personable Dr. Richards and his staff were. My procedure was on a Friday and I got phonecalls from both Dr. Richards and his administrative assistant over the weekend from their cell phones. It was so nice to know that they were taking time out of their busy and/or relaxing weekends to check up on me during my recovery. Not only were they personable and caring, but I was also very pleased with the results of my procedure. My breasts turned out to be perfectly symmetrical, the perfect size, and I had no complications whatsoever. My breasts are everything I ever wanted and this was the best early christmas present anybody could've given me. I'm so glad I chose Dr. Richards to do my breast augmentation and I'm sure anybody else who chose him would be glad with their results as well.

Amazing! - Bethesda, MD

Dr. Franklin Richards did an amazing job on my breast reduction. After multiple opinions and waiting 10 years, I finally felt comfortable enough to go ahead. He recommended a lollipop minimal incision vs. an anchor incision like three other doctor's. His office even helped me with insurance approval. In addition post-operative he has been always willing to answer my questions. I would recommend anyone thinking about this surgery to see Dr. Richards and look no further!

I Could Not Ask for Better Results or Better Recovery Than I Got with Dr. Richards - Bethesda, MD

I chose Dr. Richards for my SmartLipo because of his strong credentials, exceptional bedside manner, and impressive book of before-and-after liposuction photos--I couldn't believe that these were not pictures of tummy tucks because the results were SO dramatic and natural-looking: no lumps, no asymmetry, no saggy skin. I also liked that he was up-front and honest about what my results would be--that I would be sore for a few weeks, that it could take up to 6 months to see the final result, etc. I appreciated that he didn't try to sugar-coat it into sounding like an instant miracle cure, and that I never felt he was trying to "sell" me. As added bonuses, I also liked that his staff was extremely friendly (I liked everyone, but Christina was particularly engaging), the office is very clean, and his Bethesda office is convenient to public transportation. I don't plan on having any further surgery, but if I do in the future I will definitely return to Dr. Richards. I could not ask for better recovery or better results. I would absolutely, 100% recommend him for this procedure.
