5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift
From the consultation to the procedure to aftercare, Dr. Ringler and his entire staff made me feel so at ease and comfortable! Dr. Ringler truly is a caring doctor, he took the time to answer all of my questions. I recommend him 100% and although in my 40s, have never looked better!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I had wanted this procedure for many years. I only wish I had found Dr. Ringler sooner.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
I had felt self-conscious about my breast size for years, but had always felt quite selfish about wanting to have my appearance changed, and also quite scared to have the procedure itself. When it came time for the surgery, I had absolutely no 'jitters' or second thoughts because our appointments had been so thorough and the office as a whole so welcoming. Within just 5 days...
5 out of 5 stars Radiesse
Loss of volume after weight loss. After a successful weight loss I had concerns regarding the loss of to much volume in the facial area. I saw Dr. Ringler to inquire about fillers. He recommended Radiesse. I am so pleased with my result. It gave me my youthful look back.
5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy
The ulterapy showed immediate results that were very satisfactory. I expect even more results as time goes on. I had only slight bruising beneath one eye, but I am an easy bruiser. There is some swelling, but that is likely from the local anesthetic (I tend to react a bit from anesthetics and most medications).
To make me feel and look sexy for my husband.,,which truly has enriched our marriage!
To feel better about myself. This review is for the Body-Jet Water Assisted Liposuction: I am 37 years old, a bit over weight, and had a stomach that I was not happy with. I could no longer blame this on baby weight, as my son is now 9 years old! I was quite unhappy with the area under my belly button, as that is where I have the classic c-section “shelf” thing that many...
I've wanted this done for a long time and although I was very nervous, I'm so glad I went through with it, and am equally glad it was Dr. R who did the procedure. Regarding my procedure:Smartlipo of the neck:I had this done in May, 2010. I worked closely with Dr.R's assistant Rebecca. She is amazing. She worked with me (put up with me) regarding available date inquires,...
5 out of 5 stars SmartLipo MPX
Flanks, upper & lower abs, bra line & arms. 8 days post op. 1700cc removed. ONLY USE BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON THAT HAS HAD FORMAL TRAINING IN SMART LIPO MPX, I can already see results even though I am still quite swollen. I am using motrin for pain control except at night when I take 1 vicodin. Had drainage for two days. I am trying to wear a compression garment as much as I...
5 out of 5 stars Body Jet
For the feeling of self improvement. I am 37 years old, a bit over weight, and had a double chin going on. It wasn't even exactly a double chin (well, it was that too) but I felt it was a bit like a turkey neck where I didn't have much of a jaw-line definition and rather my neck was full from the tip (bottom) of my chin to my lower neck. Dr. Ringler agreed that Smartlipo would be...

There is a new book out by Mireille Guiliano called, French Women Don’t Get Facelifts; The Secret of Aging with Style and Attitude. While no one will deny that aging gracefully and with a good attitude and great style is desirable, the fact is, French women do get facelifts. While they may be less open about the fact than their American counterparts, they do, and have been, getting facelifts along with many other types of plastic surgery for decades.I have been practicing plastic surgery...
