Brock Ridenour, MD

5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Ridenour is professional, courteous, and caring. He has a wonderful eye for placement of filler. I've never had a bruise from his injections and he takes care to make the procedure as painless as possible. READ MORE

Upper Blepharoplasty - Mexico

Excellent experience. My eyelids are perfect and the scars are invisible to the naked eye. Dr. Gutierrez did a wonderful job. I highly recommend him. My upper eyelids were sagging and my eyes were not open wide enough. I looked tired. After the procedure my eyes are more open and look great! Great experience. READ MORE

Botox to Relax Glabella Area and Lift Medial Brows - Saint Louis, MO

I usually have Botox injected in my glabella area to prevent frown lines and to lift my medial brows. Without Botox, my medial brow droops and it looks dark above my eyes. With Botox, my eye area looks refreshed and I do not have frown lines. It is a great non-surgical procedure when performed in the right hands. READ MORE

Forehead Reduction 33 Y/o Male - Beverly Hills, CA

Wonderful results. My scar is next-to invisible. I would definitely recommend Dr. Aharonov if you are considering a forehead reduction. My profile is so much better now. It was somewhat painful but managed my pain very well. I had a few episodes of folliculitis too and he managed that very well too, calling in antibiotics as I had flares. READ MORE

Cheek Implants (Revision), Buccal Fat Removal, ThermiRF (2nd Procedure) - Saint Louis, MO

I am scheduled for removal and replacement of cheek implants, buccal fat removal, and a second ThermiRF procedure to my lower face and neck. My current cheek implants (size large) are being replaced with Terino Malar Shell small 6mm implants in hopes of achieving a higher, more pronounced, chiseled look. I had acceptable results from the first ThermiRF procedure but need more tightening... READ MORE

Lipo, Extended Tummy Tuck, BBL - Tijuana, MX

After reviewing a few surgeons in Tijuana, I have decided on Dr. Pantoja. I am scheduled for an abdominoplasty, liposuction, BBL, and buccal fat removal on 9/17/14. I will be staying in his clinic for two nights then recovering at Club Medical for an additional 4 nights. I'm very excited and somewhat nervous. I've had a lot of cosmetic and plastic work done but haven't been out of the states... READ MORE

Chin Implant - Saint Louis, MO

The implant definitely helped my profile. However, it looks somewhat crooked. On the right side I feel a something firm underneath my chin and I'm not sure if the implant is positioned incorrectly or this is excess scar tissue. It feels like it is higher on the left side. I cannot get into him for a few weeks to evaluate this. READ MORE

Laser Tattoo Removal - Saint Louis, MO

I had a consultation with the medical esthetician and purchased a package of 3 treatments for laser tattoo removal. She thought this is all I will need. I previously had two TCA treatments to the tattoo to lighten it. The TCA did help somewhat. I had my first treatment on 11-11-13. The procedure was very quick and similar to a mild burning/stinging. Sara, the esthetician, took breaks to... READ MORE

Expert Injector! -Saint Louis, MO

I've had Dr. Ridenour inject a few syringes of Radiesse into my cheeks and am very pleased. I've had fillers injected for years and could not truly appreciate them until a talented hand injected them. The results were exactly what I wanted. Dr. Ridenour explained where I could most benefit from the injections and asked what I was wanting. The final result was fantastic. Update to original... READ MORE

Does my chin implant look crooked? (photos)

I had a chin implant with wings placed (submental incision) in December. Something looks off to me. I do feel some more scar tissue on the right side of the scar. I'm not sure... READ MORE

I had two BBLs (on different occasions obviously). Both times I used a boopy pillow which helped tremendously. I would definitely recommend buying just a boppy pillow - like the pillow for feeding a baby. You can get one for like $25... READ COMMENT

Your swelling will continue to decrease. I had implants and had swelling for months. It took probably 6-8 months before it was completely resolved. Did the asymmetry resolve? You look good! READ COMMENT

Your results look really nice so far! I had cheek implants twice. My dr was awful. READ COMMENT

Were you going to post a second video? READ COMMENT

Hi Casper888. A little over 3 weeks ago I had a mid-face lift, neck lift with liposuction, rhinoplasty (with rib harvesting), nasolabial fold implant (customized silicone implants designed by my surgeon), upper blepharoplasty, right... READ COMMENT
