5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

I Look my Best Ever...and Nobody Can Figure out Why...not Even my Parents!

Beside that the results speak for themselves (see above review), he is passionate about his work and I don't get the feeling that he is just doing it for the money yet he is worth every penny I paid, looks at your whole face and gives you recommendations based on greatest impact not highest expense and he has great bedside manners (which in my experience is unusual)

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty Finally Helped Me Look My Real Age! - Washington, DC

The doctor I had was amazing, and so was his staff. He had great experience/credentials and was very approachable during the initial consultation and throughout the entire process, even afterward, giving me as much time as I needed to have my questions fully answered. I liked that his ego was in check and he seemed modest, compared to some other doctors in this business. His patient coordinator was fantastic, and basically walked me through exactly what I would need to do leadng up to the procedure, and also how to finance it (Two Words: CARE CREDIT!!!) Dr. R had a great bedside manner during the procedure, and I knew I was in good hands, even though I was so groggy and disoriented. One of the neatest things was that his practice pays to put you and your companion who helped you leave the hospital up in a nearby hotel for that night. He then paid a courtesy call on me the next morning, which was so re-assuring, since I wanted peace of mind that everything had gone okay and that my current post-surgery condition was normal. Dr. R was great afterwards as well, having me come in for regular follow-ups for the next few months (usually every other week or so) to check my progress. I can't say enough how happy I am with him and his whole team. I have gone back for several other smaller in-office procedures with this doctor, and am grateful that I found a place which has such a dedicated and responsible staff and really puts the patient first.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

My two new girls

I honestly felt as if Dr. Ruff assigned one of his staff members to me from the moment I met Michelle. Any question I had (no matter the time because I had her cell phone number) was answered fully and completely. Even when I thought i wanted to cancel because of nervousness she was not pushy or anything. She got me right in to see Dr. Ruff again and he answered all of my questions again. The BIGGEST plus is that they do 3D imaging which shows what your body will look like with breasts not finding other pictures and that helped tremendously. Dr. Ruff was there when I got out of surgery to ensure I was okay and he called me that night to make sure that I was still doing good. Awesome customer service, awesome in everything. I am very pleased and would recommend him to anyone!

5 out of 5 stars Latisse

Found Latisse for a Great Price - and It Works! - Arlington, VA

Dr R is in Washington DC. A friend referred him to me. He is a super personable Dr. I having gone to him for Botox, Juvederm, Latisse and I recently had breast implant replacement and a brazillian butt lift through him. I'm still recovering from the surgery, but so far I am! please with the results! His Botox and filler injection techniques are excellent!

5 out of 5 stars Vaser Liposuction

Recent Vaser Lipo on Inner Thighs, Waist Area, Flanks and Lower Abs - Washington, DC

5 out of 5 stars Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty, Best Decision Ever! - Washington, DC

Doctor Ruff talked to me throughout the procedure which helped me forget that it was being done. Then he checked up on me that following day to answer any questions I had. My experience was more than I could of ever asked for.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Extended Tummy Tuck W Flank Lipo After Major Weight Loss - Washington, DC

I absolutely LOVE Dr. Ruff. He was so patient, attentive, and caring during my consultation and pre-op appointment. He answered every question I had and was very thorough in his explanations so I left feeling so good and excited. He nails that fine line between confidence and cockiness, and is a very talented surgeon with an amazing staff. I've been impressed with everything from the reception area to the surgical center, and from the receptionist to the doctor himself. He is also an amazingly skilled surgeon. I am so impressed with my progress so soon after the procedure and how quickly I've healed! He called me from his personal cell phone the night of surgery to check in and answered a call in the middle of the night when I was in a lot of pain. Highly, highly, highly recommend.

3 out of 5 stars Male Tummy Tuck

Washington dc - male tummy tuck &- lipo the flanks

Very please we the results so far. The Dr and the staff are really great. Tummy Tuck I am very pleased with the results, with the lipo of the flanks not so much. He offered to do some extra lipo but he wants to charge me full prize and that to me is unacceptable.

1 out of 5 stars Restylane

Permanently Disfigured - Washington, DC

Uncaring after his procedure went horribly wrong Less experienced than he appears. Left me permanently disfigured harming my career and personal relationship. He failed to notify me of risks prior nor did I sigh a consent form. He lied and told me that nothing bad could happen

1 out of 5 stars Hyaluronidase

Not happy with hyaluranidase results - Washington, DC

I gave him this rating because he used a substance under my eyes that he had little experience with hyaluranidase to correct restylene gone bad - my eyes were swollen like a black eye and there were horrible lumps under my eye. When he finished I looked ten years older with deep tear trough lines that were not there before and large fatty bags from the restylene. He did not offer to fix the problem and I am left having to spend lots of money to try to correct this travesty. I urge you to find another doctor.
