Dr. Ridgway is the best plastic surgeon on the planet. He is very cautious, conservative and careful and explains things to you so you know exactly what is going to happen and what to expect. He has a terrific personality and I trust him completely. Am so thankful that I found him for a surgeon for my face and I will be using him and only him for the rest of my life.
