Breast Implant Removal & Capsulectomy. Chapel Hill, NC

Can't say enough great things about Dr Ruff and his staff. Dr Ruff truly cares and you can tell he loves what he does. He makes you feel like you're the only patient he has, is very open, and listens to your ideas. He has decades of experience and practice under his belt that I felt so calm before surgery. He's one of the best and most caring doctors I've ever been to. I'm very happy with the...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

41 Year Years. Chapel Hill, NC

After consulting with several of the Triangle's top plastic surgeons, I chose Dr Ruff. I knew within minutes of meeting him that he was the one! This was my very first surgery. I was really nervous and had a ton of questions. He was a very good listener and answered all of my questions very thoroughly. Both he and the surgical nurse, Christy Foushee, were warm kind, and empathetic. They completely put my mind at ease! It's been almost 5 weeks since my surgery. I love my new breasts! I have the cohesive gel implant. It looks so natural. The incision site is tiny and healing very nicely. If I had to do it all over again. I would still choose still choose Dr Ruff! He's awedome.

5 out of 5 stars Thread Lift

Maintaining Your Best Look Ever - Chapel Hill, NC

To me, Dr. Ruff is incomparable. The procedure for his Contour Thread/Micro Lift was created and developed by him. He developed the procedure and the threads and continues to improve upon both in order to achieve the best look and long lasting results. He then went on to teach his procedure to doctors around the world. In addition to his exemplary skills, Dr. Ruff and his staff makes the complete experience stress free. You will receive professional, caring service.

4 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Much Needed TT, 25 Years Later! - Chapel Hill, NC

Extremely easy to make an appointment. I received a consult within 2 weeks of my call and had surgery scheduled within 2 weeks of the consult. The office staff are incredibly responsive and helpful. The consult and follow up appointments were brief. Very grateful for no drain option and his attention to the no tension suture - it's quite a work of art. Wished we had talked a bit more about options or addressing the flanks, during the TT or with lipo. He ended up doing lipo of the flanks and lower back approximately 4 months afterwards as I was really disappointed that I did not have any contour of my sides. I followed up with him again at the 6 month mark because I still have a good bit of loose skin and fat rolls in the front and on my sides. Dr. Ruff was quick to schedule a follow up but basically told me, "This is as good as it gets." I have since received second opinions that indicated that they would have done lipo with a TT to achieve a more desirable result. My suggestion, have multiple consults with different doctors. Dr. Ruff's no-lipo TT preference seems ideal for someone who is not carrying any extra fat (I referred such a friend and her results are amazing). And I could not have imagined a more amazing recovery. However, I would have preferred to have been told about various options and outcomes given my body shape before hand in order to weigh my options before spending $14,000.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

31 yrs old, 5'5'' 125lbs Sagg : Anchor lift and 440cc Sientra MP "gummy bear" Silicone - Chapel Hill, NC

Dr.Ruff and staff are fantastic! Dr. Ruff looked at my wish pics and made my dreams come true. I thought I was getting 400cc based on the sizers over my breasts but once he got in there he went with 440cc. When I did the rice sizers 400 looked huge but after the anchor lift I must have lost a lot of tissue. I'm glad I trusted him enough to make that call because 400cc would have been way smaller than I wanted. You have to find a plastic surgeon that you feel confident in and you can trust to look at your wish pictures and give you the results you want. Dr Ruff has gone to all the right schools, is highly educated and his years and years of experience. He is up to date on the latest technology and only practices evidence based medicine.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

5'5'' 125 lbs Full TT No Lipo or Drains, barbed no-tension closure: EXTRA SKIN removal- Chapel Hill, NC

Dr. Ruff has the right credentials, education, experience and price (surprisingly). my first consultation was with a plastic surgeon in Raleigh, he hasn't even been alive as long as Dr Ruff has been practicing and he quoted me 12-15K. Are you kidding me? Dr Ruff ' s resume I'd impressive, he has a great personality and his staff love what they do. You want people working on you that love what they do. Dr Ruff is who physicians & their family member go to. he does not have a big web presence because his priority is His patients, conducting research, writing, presenting his work & teaching (he used to be a professor at Duke & likes to mentor on a limited basis). he is also an artist, literally an artist. All the art in his office is by him. Anybody can cut you up but you want an artist creating beauty from the rubble. Best kept secret in NC plastic surgery.

20 Years Old, Lipo on Hips and Abdomen - Chapel Hill, NC

He's absolutely amazing. He gave me deep detail of what the surgery and recovery was going to be like so I had zero surprises. His entire staff was lovely and took care of every need I may have had. I was given a call the night before my surgery and the night of my surgery to make sure I was doing okay. I would definitely recommend him!

From 40D to 38B and Only Wish I'd Done It Sooner! - Chapel Hill, NC

Best surgeon ever. Amazingly natural results and I have had several procedures that are both subtle and have amazingly natural appearance. Most people were unaware I had implants, just large breasts and he tried to tell me honestly that the size I wanted were too large though I insisted and will most definitely go back when I am ready for a lift if needed. He is the best and the office staff is wonderful too! Great skincare and fillers also!
