5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Love This Doctor! - San Francisco, CA

Great experience. I was a nervous reck and looked to find a way out of doing surgery but after meeting Dr. Ransom, talking to him, asking my questions I just knew I had to do this! Each step of the way I had no regrets and now, 7 months later I am thrilled with my decision. PS I tried to add a photo but don't know how, so sorry! You would need to see a before and after. Pay a visit to Dr. Ransom he has them in his office!! My sister and I went to the office of Dr. Ransom to inquire about a few cosmetic procedures we each had been thinking about having done. He was very kind, patient and professional. We pondered our decision to have our surgeries but felt so at ease with Dr. Ransom it became a "no brainer". It is evident that he is as invested in your surgery as you are. He truly cares and aims to please his patients. Make your appointment, meet him, he is very bright and compassionate, easy to talk to and has great training...I was extremely nervous but each step of the way Dr. Ransom's kind, calm demeanor had me always feel at ease. I love this man he changed my life. My sister too feels at ease with her appearance and when the day comes that she needs a facelift Dr. Ransom is her man!! It's a "No Brainer"!!!

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

The BEST Rhinoplasty I Could Have Asked For!! - San Francisco, CA

I couldn't be happier with the work Dr. Ransome has done. I had rhinoplasty to correct a downward pointing nose, and some crookedness that had bothered me my whole life. I was terrified that this would change my appearance drastically, but he was SO careful to get just the right fit. My mom even thought I had just lost weight!

Results Surpassed my Expectations. Evan Ransom is More of an Artist Than a Surgeon - San Francisco, CA

St. Francis Hospital staff in SF was exceptionally professional and went the extra mile with me after the surgery when I was exhausted, hungry, weak from the anesthesia, and sore from the gurney. They worked with my friend to clean me up and get me dressed to be presentable, and did not rush me out the door in a taxi. IMHO, the hospital staff and the post-op were extremely important in my overall positive experience. It could easily have been a messy nightmare without these people.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Definitely worthwhile, and I am very pleased with the outcome. - Upper Eyelid Surgery - San Francisco, CA

Dr. Ransom is fantastic! I asked him to be relatively conservative because I am on the younger side, and didnt want to look like I had work. He did an amazing job- small sutures, quick healing, and I was able to get back to normal in about 5-7 days. Even my mom, who was with me during the pre-op, and is VERY discerning, loved the outcome. I come from a medical family (mom is a nurse, dad is a surgeon), so he had some very critical judges! He has a great aesthetic, and his reconstructive work is amazing. Have a look at some of the things he has done for people- truly life changing.

Exceptional Doctor - San Francisco, CA

I found him through a friend, who had surgery with one of the doctors in his practice. He was excellent throughout the entire process, demonstrating great patience and compassion. He made himself available to answer questions, which made the process very comforting for me. Dr. ransom is one of those people that goes above what he is called to do. His work is precise, and he knows that latest techniques. I feel much more confident, and have received many compliments. people always guess my age as 10 years younger. I would highly recommend Dr. ransom, not only for his work, but for his reassuring and supportive personality.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Face/Neck Lift/Upper & Lower Eyes/earlobe Repair and Reduction

I can't speak highly enough in regards to the treatment I received from Dr Evan Ransom. His professionalism, conscientiousness, artistry, attention to detail was so evident, in regards to a hairline fracture I had received on my cheekbone from a hit. I had gotten X-rays and a radiologist said all was well. However the swelling idn't disperse, as it should have for quite some time. It was then i contacted Dr Ransom. He pointed out on the X-ray the damage the Radiologist had missed and that we would have to correct the problem. His intelligent and calm demeanor also helped me decide to go ahead and get a facelift, without any references. His patient coordinator, Dee was also extremely helpful through the entire process. I just knew he would do the right kind of facelift, one that looked natural. I can now say I am truly ecstatic with my results and I am eternally grateful for his good eyes! I hope others will follow suit and know that this surgeon is the one for you! Thank you Dr Ransom and Dee for everything--as I will refer others.

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Botox & Juvederm - Great Results - San Francisco, CA

I would agree with most reviewers that Dr Ransom is relaxed and friendly and not pushy at all. He is talented and intelligent. I also like that he performs free surgeries for underprivileged children who are born with cleft palates

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Botox Treatment - San Francisco, CA

Dr. Ransom was very polite and gentle when he performed the Botox procedure. He also explained a face lift procedure, that I am considering, very thoroughly. I was able to see the result of a procedure that he performed on a friend of mine and I was sold. Her face looks beautiful. I would like for him to perform the face lift on me too.

47 Years Old and I Was Tired of my 'Tired' Eyes - San Francisco, CA

I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Ransom and Dee Roby! Simply the best surgery experience I could have hoped for! I'm 47 and my upper eyelids had becoming increasingly heavier since I was 40. I spent a couple of years seeing different surgeons, having consultations and researching their backgrounds and checking reviews. No doubt some of them were great surgeons but I never felt the immediate...
