5 out of 5 stars Eye Bags Treatment

42 Year Old in Need of Dark Circle and Under Eye Bag Removal - Bethesda, MD

Show More Dr. Richards is a master of the craft of Cosmetic Surgery. He is a perfectionist to the core which is evident in both pre/post operative interactions and most obviously his work. Committed to delivering a flawless result he has a continued follow up process to ensure that outcome. Finally his confidence in his ability translates to a very reassured bedside manner. The staff is also great and informative offering a line of over the counter products to aid skin texture which also enhanced my result. It was great working with Dr. Richards. I highly recommend him and will certainly be revisiting for any future needs.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Age 46, Droopy Eyelids - Bethesda, MD

Show More Dr. Richards is very nice, calm, professional and informative. He has a quiet confidence in his ability that you want in a plastic surgeon. His staff, from your assigned assistant, to the other doctors and nurses who work with you, are incredibly nice and patient. The office is new, beautiful and spotless. I wasted two years worrying about the procedure and outcome. The entire process from start to finish was about 4 hours in the doctor's office, 2 days of achy pain, and only 7 days of immediate recovery. I wish I'd done it last year! I'm writing this review sixteen days after surgery and I still have a few scabs and slight bruising but it's completely unnoticeable, except by me. Everyone who sees me post-surgery says how great my eye makeup looks or how rested I look! Mission accomplished. I highly recommend this practice. It's organized, experienced and everyone is very professional!

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Wonderful Results from Lower Face/neck Lift W/ Dr. Franklin D. Richards - Bethesda, MD

Show More I consulted with several board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeons in the greater Washington, DC area regarding a lower face lift, and each physician seemed skilled and nice. However, I paid close attention to their portfolios of face lift patient photos, and found that although the "after" pictures looked good from the front, most of them looked only somewhat better in their profiles. However, during my consultation with Dr. Franklin D. Richards, I immediately noticed very definite and beautiful results in his extensive portfolio of face lift cases. Both the front AND profile photos of all of his face lift patients look really naturally youthful and great. I mentioned this difference in profile pictures to Dr. Richards, and he explained the importance of often addressing the neck muscles in achieving an overall improved look of the lower face, jaw, and chin area. He did not describe any of this in terms of multiple procedures (face and neck) and certainly did not charge as if it were two. His face lift portfolio speaks for itself, but I also felt his explanations reflect a particularly strong sense of artistic and professional integrity. Dr. Richards and all of his staff were absolutely wonderful to be with, and I feel very lucky to have found his practice.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

So Glad I Chose Dr. Richards! Bethesda, MD

Show More In order to choose the best doctor for my rhinoplasty I did a lot of research, this led me to two area doctors who had great reviews and had the same idea of what an ideal nose would look like. The first doctor I saw reminded me of a sales person, telling me that I needed so much done to my face! I felt overwhelmed and left feeling discouraged, about a month later I was able to get in to see Dr. Richards and he turned everything around. I explained that I really just wanted the hump removed from my nose and he made it seem like that would be no big deal, he explained the process to me but didn't try to sell me a chin implant or make it more complicated than it needed to be. I enjoyed his relaxed manner, it made me feel comfortable that he knew what he was doing and I was in good hands. I was feeling really comfortable with Dr. Richards during my consultation but what sealed the deal was his computer imaging software, using which he was able to take my picture and alter it to give me an understanding of what my nose would be like after the surgery. Undoubtedly, that made me so much more comfortable about having the procedure done, and having it performed by Dr. Richards. It is exactly 3 weeks after the day of my surgery as I write this and I am in love with my new nose, I really can't think of how I could be happier, it is exactly like the many photos of his previous work that had attracted me to him in the first place. I am extremely happy and would definitely recommend Dr. Richards to friends and family.
