5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

53 Year Old Female with Significant Weight Loss in Need of a Neck Lift - Bethesda, MD

Dr. Richards is fantastic. He took the time to make sure I was comfortable and clearly understood the each step of the procedure and recovery time. He encouraged me to ask questions and has been dedicated to my recovery with continuous follow-up. I couldn't be happier with my experience and the results! Thank you Dr. Richards!

Wonderful Results from Lower Face/neck Lift W/ Dr. Franklin D. Richards - Bethesda, MD

I consulted with several board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeons in the greater Washington, DC area regarding a lower face lift, and each physician seemed skilled and nice. However, I paid close attention to their portfolios of face lift patient photos, and found that although the "after" pictures looked good from the front, most of them looked only somewhat better in their profiles. However, during my consultation with Dr. Franklin D. Richards, I immediately noticed very definite and beautiful results in his extensive portfolio of face lift cases. Both the front AND profile photos of all of his face lift patients look really naturally youthful and great. I mentioned this difference in profile pictures to Dr. Richards, and he explained the importance of often addressing the neck muscles in achieving an overall improved look of the lower face, jaw, and chin area. He did not describe any of this in terms of multiple procedures (face and neck) and certainly did not charge as if it were two. His face lift portfolio speaks for itself, but I also felt his explanations reflect a particularly strong sense of artistic and professional integrity. Dr. Richards and all of his staff were absolutely wonderful to be with, and I feel very lucky to have found his practice.

I had an amazing experience

My experience with Dr. Richards was excellent. I went in for a Breast Augmentation consult and from his staff to meeting him was amazing. Everyone was polite and made me feel comfortable. After my first visit I knew he would be my surgeon. Thanks Dr. Richards

Several procedures within 5 years

I have had several procedures done with Dr. Richards over 5 years and I am very pleased with the ending results and his professionalism. The unknowns of having cosmetics surgery can be unsettling and Dr. Richards exceeded my expectations.

I was impressed by the professionalism and level of service by the office and even more by Dr. Richards himself.His explanation of the procedure, recovery and result potential was very thorough, and answered my...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Amazing experience!

Dr. Franklin is an outstanding plastic surgeon. I have never had anything done before but after two kids and almost reaching the milestone of 40 I decided it was time to do something about those hard to get rid of outer thighs that would not go away with any amount of exercise or healthy eating that I was doing. I'm now a month out and happy to say Dr. Franklin has performed the procedure with...
