5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Perfection is the Result I Received - Jupiter, FL

I interviewed many plastic surgeons in South Florida before choosing Dr. Rankin...so I definitely did my homework. The entire staff at Aqua is so welcoming, accommodating, and took absolutely all of the nervous feelings I had and put me completely at ease. From initial consultation all the way up through surgery, and now months after my breast lift and augmentation, Dr. Rankin & staff have been therere for me...it's the feeling that I am the ONLY patient they have. That kind of treatment is rare. As for my surgery..Dr. Rankin is..in a word...masterful at his craft. I provided photos of my desired size & shape..and he mde sure my expectations were exceeded! I couldn't be more pleased with my surgery and with my overall experience...truthfully....I am a little sad the whole process from pre-op, thru the surgery is over...the folks at Aqua & Dr. Rankin made it that fun, as well! Just meet him and his fabulous staff and you will be so at ease that you've chosen the absolute best to create the new you!

It Was Not As Uncomfortable As I Expected - Jupiter, FL

Overall, it was a good experience. It met my expectations, and I am very satisfied. I now feel more relaxed about myself, so it has positively affected my life. I wish that I decided to do this ten years ago, but didn't realize the options that I had at that time. I would recommend it to anyone who has the same condition- it is well worth it.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

23 Year Old, Nursing Student, Really Wanting Larger Breasts - Jupiter, FL

Dr. Rankin is absolutely amazing. His consultations were great. He made sure I wasn't going to big and was completely honest with what he felt was appropriate for me. He called me the night before surgery to make sure I was ready for the next day and went over the whole process with me. He also called me the night of the surgery to make sure I was ok and not in a lot of pain. He also made sure to stay on top of my post op appointments to make sure I was healing perfectly. I couldn't be happier with my results or choice of doctor. I highly recommend David Rankin.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Breast Implants Replaced with Smaller Size - Jupiter, FL

Dr. Rankin came highly recommended by my daughters and their friends. After meeting Dr. Rankin, I felt comfortable from the start that he had my best interest at heart. I trusted Dr. Rankin to decide whether to remove my implants (if little disfiguration) or replace with smaller implants during the procedure. In addition, I had eyelid surgery too. Both procedures occurred at the same time and I had little if any pain or discomfort from the surgeries. Dr. Rankin did an incredible job! He is a talented and caring person.

On my Way to a Perkier Rear End - Jupiter, FL

Dr. Rankin was wonderful and I felt very comfortable. Realself

The Very Best of the Best..... Minus the Arrogance - Jupiter, FL

As mentioned above I had met him in 2004 when he operated on my ex husband. His brilliance then convinced me that if I ever wanted to do any plastic surgery it would be with him. I would have given him a 12 out of 10!!! He is a very special Dr.
