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.

Best Decision I Ever Made!! (3 Months out of Surgery and Happier Than Ever). Chevy Chase, MD

Show More I could not be happier with Dr. Richard's office for the beautiful results and quality of care before, during and long after my surgery!! Most importantly, for the warmth and respect that defines his practice. Dr. Richards and Trish, the wonderful nurse who helped me throughout the process, provided honesty and good judgement from the beginning, and were available to answer all of my questions and many many concerns in detail. Before I consulted Dr. Richards in October 2014, I saw two other surgeons in the area. The first one I went to see had my consultation at something that seemed like a meeting room (I am not joking!), wooden table and matching chairs and all. He claimed that there was a surgery taking place at his consultation room, so that was the only room available. He was also wearing a suit and tie. I knew right up that it something wasn't right. Make sure your surgeon doesn't see you as a customer on a commercial transaction, but takes care of you as his/her patient. Several months passed, and I came in to see Dr. Richards. He immediately striked me as a kind, responsible and experienced doctor, all of which in my experience he absolutely is. He took the time to ask me how I felt about my body, what results I hoped for, and so on. When I asked all these questions (mainly about potential risks of infection, rupture, and other anxieties) he quoted statistics from research sources for each issue. He never pushed me to make a decision, but I did before I even left the office! I scheduled my surgery as soon as I got dressed. I cannot stress enough what a great experience it was, and how much it has changed my life. So I took the last 40 minutes to write my story and let you all know about it. Thank you thank you!!!! :)

41 Year Old Mom of 5 Including 20 Month Old Triplets. - Bethesda MD

Show More Dr. Richards was terrific. He spent lots of time with me and explained everything. Made me feel very comfortable. His staff was extremely friendly and professional. I could not be happier with the results. He did a really terrific job. I also had a little tummy tuck to deal with loose skin from 3 pregnancies. Very happy.

S Lift, Fraxel, and Liposuction - Bethesda, MD

Show More 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.
