What People Say About Dr. J Rich III, MD

After months of researching plastic surgeons, my husband and I chose Dr. Rich... We made an appointment with him, with expressed intent to receive a face lift. Well, apparently he is focusing more on injections now rather than surgeries, because at our appointment he insisted that i receive injections rather than a lift. I did agree to the injections, because I fully trusted Dr. Rich. Afterwards, though, the effect was not at all what I was expecting.

Dr. Rich performed rhinoplasty and did a terrible job. One of my nostrils is significantly bigger than the other one, and there is a notch on one side of my nose. However, Dr. Rich looked at my nose and gave it a "100." Now I'm desperately searching for the right person to do a revision.

Dr. Rich and his team were phenomenal. Dr. Rich met with me twice to discuss my readiness for the procedures and explained exactly what I should expect. Throughout the consultation, surgery, and post-surgery, Dr. Rich and his staff were available to answer my questions - even on the weekends. I am overjoyed with the results I received from the lift and tuck. I look at least 10 years younger and refreshed!. Dr. Rich is a gifted surgeon with an eye for making results look natural and believable.
