He has led the way in the concept of restoring facial volume.For over ten years, he has lectured on volume restoration using fillers and surgery. "It's important that you don't look like you've had plastic surgery. The goal is to be a more confident version of yourself," says Dr. Ricciardelli. He will guide you through the consultation process so that you have a greater understanding of the possibilities. His primary objective is to develop a plan that meets your goals. "I have found that most patients have very realistic goals and expectations. My goal is to meet and exceed those expectations," says Dr. Ricciardelli.
