Dr Rankin is the Best! - Jupiter, FL

Firstly the office is beautiful, the staff are on top of things, are flexible and kind. The dr was very attentive, listened and was completely honest, which in his field is more than rare. He is a gentleman who takes pride in results. I highly recommend. In fact he elected to use less units for my procedure than anyone In past, this doctor is about making clients happy, not only his pockets.

AMAZING!!!! Dr Rankin is the best I literally love him

I am a woman who reads reviews on EVERYTHING I purchase nothing online without reading all the reviews first, so I am writing this review to share with those of you who are like me with your investigations. I did the BBL(Brazilian Butt Lift) with Dr. Rankin it was a procedure I have always wanted but because of how intricate the procedure is and how much of a perfectionist I am I was always...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Praying Hard for a Flat Tummy! - Jupiter, FL

I am 44, I workout 5 x a week , but cannot tighten my abs. Even did the P90 X for the 12 weeks with the abs workout daily and still no difference. I have 1 child (12) and I have wanted this for years. I love my Dr. as he did my BL/BA a year ago. I am nervous as heck. I have read a ton of your posts. I thank you for all the advise. Ready for tomorrow. I wish my husband was a little more...

The Go to Plastic Surgeon - Jupiter, FL

My eyelids are perfect and the C02 laser resurfacing has brought me closer to my goal of acne scar correcting.

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

I absolutely adored Dr. Rankin and his practice. I had never gotten surgery before, so of course being under anesthesia really scared me. Dr. Rankin and the nurses made me feel so comfortable and calm and reassured me that it was going to be fine. One of the nurses was even rubbing my arm while I was laying on the table waiting for the IV to kick in. They make sure you are completely...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Breast Implants Replaced with Smaller Size - Jupiter, FL

I have never been comfortable with my large breast implants (C+) I have had for 15 years. I believed that if my implants were reduced, they would leave me disfigured. The cost of breast reconstruction was prohibitive for me. After discussing my dilemma with Dr. Rankin, I was able to realize that simply reducing the implant would not leave me disfigured and the cost was within my means.

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

Today I had my consultation. Not as bad as I thought it would be. I am really looking forward to being able to wear a nice pair of jeans and be confident in my behind. Ever since I was a teen I have struggled with a muffin top. I have been down to 125 pounds and still had some pokin out the top of my pants. Now that I have had two wonderful children, my muffin top has exploded. I cannot wait...

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

Dr. David Rankin, proved how skilled he is inside the operating room and bedside when he did emergency reconstructive surgery on my ex husband. He did a miracle! Dr. Rankin followed up like a good friend would do ... not a normal Dr. So when I wanted to have some improvements done to myself years later..... there was no question who I would let operate on me. He is a true genius and a very...
