5 out of 5 stars Facelift

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.

Wow!!! - Bethesda, MD

Given Dr. Richards' experience with all manner of cosmetic surgery, burn victims, and his all round genuine sensibility, I highly recommend Dr. Richards and the Cosmetic Surgery Associates – as offering a gold standard. His work is both medically superior and as a profound artist, able to restore a face so that it is, remarkably, as it once was. See ratings below:

42 Year Old in Need of Dark Circle and Under Eye Bag Removal - Bethesda, MD

Dr. Richards is a master of the craft of Cosmetic Surgery. He is a perfectionist to the core which is evident in both pre/post operative interactions and most obviously his work. Committed to delivering a flawless result he has a continued follow up process to ensure that outcome. Finally his confidence in his ability translates to a very reassured bedside manner. The staff is also great and informative offering a line of over the counter products to aid skin texture which also enhanced my result. It was great working with Dr. Richards. I highly recommend him and will certainly be revisiting for any future needs.

My Eyes Were Aging Faster Than I Was (Upper & Lower) - Bethesda, MD

Professional, very human. From the outset, I had the utmost confidence in Dr. Richards' ability to work on my eyes and deliver the results I wanted. I spoke with a lot of doctors before my procedure and I would recommend that anyone considering surgery do the same, but Dr. Richards' vision and experience won. And I am 100% positive I made the right choice.
