5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Finally Got a Breast Augmentation at Age 33

Very professional and easy to talk to. He listened to my goals and answered all of my questions. I'm very pleased with him, his bedside manners, and my final result.

Circumferential Abdominoplasty After Gastric Bypass - Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

best surgeon ever!!! staff are the best called daily to check on me they are remarkable

56 Year Old, 4 Children, Need a Tummy Tuck. Ponte Vedra, FL

I reviewed about 8 doctors. I found Dr. Rumsey's web site at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery Center and was impressed with his photos. I made an appointment with him and met with him on several occasions before making the decision. He was always kind, thorough, and took plenty of time answering my questions. It just clicked and I knew he would be my doctor. The staff there has been wonderful so far as well. I will have the procedure at their facility and remain over night for observation. I will continue writing after surgery. I had tummy tuck yesterday and everything went great! The facility and staff were wonderful, I have had a great experience so far. Dr. Rumsey and his nurse Melissa met me with big smiles. I spent the night in a private room where I was pampered all night long by Shawna. Beth gave explicit instructions at discharge time. Can't wait to see results. 1/26/15 I had my first post op appointment. I arrived at 10:15 and waited no more than 10 minutes in the waiting room. Upon examination, Dr. Rumsey said he was very pleased with the results. He gave me careful instructions for the next week and answered all my questions. I got the drain tubes removed and have been very happy with the progress thus far. Dr. Rumsey and his team are very professional, courteous, and friendly. I am very happy with the results so far.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

64 Year Old in Need of Natural Lift - Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

Dr. Rumsey is approachable and accessible. I was shocked to have read one review that described him as being aloof or indifferent. This reviewer must have confused Dr. Rumsey with another surgeon. I found Dr. Rumsey to be down to earth and a good listener. He answers questions directly and attempts to explain the process, as well as the medical procedure and inherent medical risks. He is Very likable and the nurses and support staff couldn't be more supportive and caring. More importantly, this doctor is very skilled at his profession. Again if patients want to minimize bruising, scarring, recovery time and obtain natural looking and remarkable results, Dr. Rumsey could be the Plastic Surgeon for you.

I've gone to two consults and have chosen to have surgery with Dr. Cayce Rumsey of. Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery in late November or early December. Dr. Rumsey was attentive, professional, and extremely encouraging about my expectations. I'm 5'5" and currently 180 pounds. I plan to lose 10-15 between now and my surgery date with clean eating and exercise and my ultimate goal is 145. I've had...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

lift and silicone mod+

I never considered implants until nursing left me a deflated 34B (or C in Victoria's Secret, they're so generous)! After going to a couple consultations, I was told I also need a lift. It took me several months to come to terms with that, but now I am just ready to do this. Tired of feeling insecure and having to live in uncomfortable push up bras/bikini tops. Struggling with some mommy guilt...

Breast Implant Removal, No Lift! - Jacksonville, FL

I was 19 years old when I had my BA (way too young!). They were saline, sub-muscular, and took me from a small A cup to a C Cup. I am now 23 (4 years after the augmentation). I decided to have them taken out. This was part of a spiritual clean up process for myself. I just wanted to be all natural, all me, and no one or nothing else. There was nothing "wrong" with my implants per say. But I...
