Patient Reviews of Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Franklin D. Richards:

Angie's list logo and reviews“I have to admit that getting a fast appointment with him is difficult. He seems to have a busy practice and it took a month before he could see me to provide botox and filler. The waiting area in the Mclean office is spacious and well lighted, so you don’t feel cramped while waiting. The office staff is extremely helpful and share their own experiences they have had with this surgeon. I did not find myself waiting long in the reception area for Dr. Richards, he seems to run on time, so far so good. I had used other doctors for injectables before and experienced significant bruising, something I hoped to avoid with this doctor. Dr. Richards took great care and time and made me feel comfortable about the process. I did experience some bruising, but it was far less than with past doctors. The results were exactly what I was seeking and I am sure it is due to his proper placement of the filler. It takes a very good eye for proper placement and this doctor has it. I will return to this Doctor in the future for more injectables and I would recommend him to friends and family.”

“My results are so much better than I could have ever imagined.  I used to look old and tired and now look 15 years younger and alive again!    What I like the most is that  I look “natural”.  Dr. Richards is by far best in his field and I would highly recommend him to anyone.”

“My initial consultation was in October, 2012. Dr. Richard’s staff was warm and friendly. Dr. Richards himself was very easy to talk to and extremely calming. He took photos of me after he listened to what I wanted to change and didn’t like about myself. Frankly, I am aware that we didn’t have to stop where we did, but he didn’t push me to do anything beyond what I asked for. When he showed me the photos on his computer with the changes the surgery would make I was astonished. Then he followed up with his photo books of patients who have agreed to allow him to show their before and after photos. These confirmed that he could indeed do what the computer photos showed for me. He also let me know that I could have this done in his office under local anesthesia or at the Suburban Outpatient Center under general anesthesia. I chose the latter. After that, I was shown into another room where pricing and payments were discussed and the down payment could be made. I did not schedule it at that time, though, because I wanted to take time to make certain my schedule was free. I scheduled the surgery November 6, for January 7, 2013. The Suburban Outpatient Center was wonderful. Everyone was very careful to make sure that I was ME, as well as making certain that the correct procedure was done! It was an amazing experience. Afterwards, the recovery discomfort was minimal. Dr. Richards called me that evening at home to make certain I was doing well and understood my instructions for care of my sutures and lasered skin. It will be four weeks since the surgery on February 4. I have looked good since January 12. I had less than a week where I didn’t feel up to going anywhere and was swollen to the point where people would notice it. When I look at my Christmas pictures I cringe. I look like my own mother. This procedure easily took 20 years off my appearance. I cannot imagine it being made any easier. I don’t see how it could be. I would recommend Dr. Richards to everyone who needs cosmetic surgery. He is an artist.”

Dr. Richards is a very skilled and gifted plastic surgeon. I am so pleased with how everything has turned out that it is hard to find a word that fits the extraordinary results!  He and his staff are professional yet also very caring and patient.  I have had four procedures performed in two operations. The first was under eye circles and rhynoplasty. The second procedure was a Quick Lift for jaw line and jowls and also a neck lift.  The procedures were explained along with risks and what to expect when healing.  There was very little discomfort and Dr. Richards called the day after surgery to make sure all was well. The results are naturally gorgeous  — nothing looks artificial!  I highly recommend Dr. Richards   Patient Review – March 12, 2012:   He was well rated against other physicians.  He spent a lot of time with me and the results were excellent.  I would definitely use him again in the future.   Patient Review – November 27, 2011:   He is really great!  He is has great bed side manner and very reassuring with his patients.  He really has a way of making you feel like you’re his only patient.  His whole office staff is exceptional and really nice.  His work is amazing and I highly recommend him.   Patient Review – March 9, 2011:   Great,the hospital was great, Dr. Richards very caring, very good at explaining everything. Just don’t expect to go down hill skiing the 1st 2 weeks. It took me years to sag and wrinkle, that is not undone overnight. That being said I think I look pretty good 2 weeks out. I’m very glad I did it after thinking about it for years. I’ve always felt young and now my face is a better match up to how I feel. I’m particularly thrilled with my jawline and neck. Can’t wait to see how I look in 2 more weeks! Patient Review – November 17, 2011: He is really great!  He is has great bed side manner and very reassuring with his patients.  He really has a way of making you feel like you’re his only patient.  His whole office staff is exceptional and really nice.  His work is amazing and I highly recommend him.
