5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery

Nose reconstruction from Cancer with incredible results!

My journey started in 2008 at age 40 with diagnosis of a large malignant tumor on the right side of my nose. The 'large Seattle institutional hospitals' did a great job of saving my life with surgical excision of the tumor, but left a large hole in the center of my face, and half of a nose. Reconstruction included a forehead flap, cartilage and other grafting to put me back together; however...

The Best Botox Job I've Ever Had - Bellevue, WA

I had some botox done by Dr. Ridgway. I've had botox done before, from a doctor, in fact. But Dr. Ridgway isn't just a doctor. He's a facial plastic surgeon, meaning he's a total expert. I LOVE the botox job he did for me. He knew little "tricks", for example he gave me a little lift on my eyes with very few units. I got my crows feet done and some on my forehead, but he didn't totally freeze my forehead which my previous doctor had done. I originally went to him for another reason which he consulted me about. Dr. Ridgway is a complete expert, yes. But he's a caring doctor as well. He took his time with me and answered all of my questions. I didn't feel rushed at all. Dr. Ridgway is just an overall great guy and awesome doctor. It was the best thing I've done to go to Dr. Ridgway for my botox, (And I plan to get some fillers later.) Thank you Dr. Ridgway! I hope to see you soon!

5 out of 5 stars Fat Transfer

Best Fat Injection - Bellevue, WA

Let me start by saying this; No matter where I move in the States or out the country, I will never have any other surgeon work on me, and no matter where I am I will always come back to Dr. Ridge. I don't know how but he really knows the definition of women beauty and youth, I'm living wetness!. I made mistake before and I got fooled by other surgeons whom portended they the best out there but I had to learn in hard way and I learned from my mistake. However, at this moment I'm blessed and very lucky to say I found Dr. James Ridgeway. He is such professional, talented, carying and honest plastic surgeon in my life like Dr. James Ridgeway is. Not to mention his friendly and warm welcome is an addition. Il tell you I never seen a surgeon who is not after your money and will turn job down if he feels is risky and since he knows what beauty is, I didn't even need to say anything else and he already figured it out. I have done fat injection with him and I tell you, he took more than 10 years off my age and add more beauty I never had in my young age.. I was so afraid at first and I wasn't sure if I was going to be happy with the result, however he set with me more than few times and went over what needs to be done and explained me everything in details and what to expect and not to expect during the recovery. He gave me peace in mind and confidnce. everything he said and explained was completely right!.. Thank you so much NewVue plastic surgery for all the great work and your profession.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty & Septoplasty with Amazing Natural Results. Bellevue, WA

What a great experience with Dr. Ridgway and the Newvue team. I came in for a consultation on what I thought would be a strictly cosmetic procedure, but Dr. Ridgway did a quick exam and determined that I had a deviated septum that would likely be covered by insurance. Before this, I had seen another surgeon in Seattle who had not mentioned this at all so I was both surprised and very pleased that he had taken the time to check on this. In the initial consultation, he took time to go through my list of questions and answered each question honestly and thoughtfully. When I left, I gave my insurance information to the billing associates and they checked with my insurance company for me to determine my coverage. At my pre-op appointment, Dr. Ridgway walked me through the imaging process. He took the time to make sure I was happy with the images we decided upon and even answered some frantic emails I had the week before the procedure (gotta love those pre-surgery nerves). The procedure itself ended up being more complicated, I think, than they had anticipated due to my nose structure. Once I was in recovery and learned more about how much of a "hot mess" my nose had been, I was so happy that I had decided to go with Dr. Ridgway. Other doctors will try to sell you on closed rhinoplasties so you won't have the scar, but the scar is tiny and my understanding is that the visibility a surgeon gets from the open rhinoplasty allows them to be a lot more precise. The recovery was tough, but worth it. Dr. Ridgway gives his patients his cell in case anything comes up and I texted him on a Saturday morning to ask him a question. He responded and was super friendly. It's been about 6 weeks now and the craziest thing is how natural the results are. I still look and feel like myself - so much that it's easy to forget that I ever looked any different! I can also breathe so much better thanks to the internal work he did. I haven't received the billing information from my insurance company so I don't yet know the total amount, but the procedure will still end up being less than what other doctors would charge out-of-pocket for a straight rhinoplasty (based on a quote I received from another doctor). 100% worth it and would do it again in a heartbeat.
