Dr. Rifai and his staff are very caring. My experience from the 1st visit until this last visit was unlike anything that I've experienced with a doctor or the office staff. They were very attentive and exceeded all my expectations. He was extremely courteous, answered all my questions before and after surgery. I never felt that he was in a rush. Gave me all the time I needed to ask questions. The results of the surgery were also exceptional. I will recommend Dr. Rifai to others.

My breast surgery at Birmingham cosmetic show details My breast surgery at Birmingham cosmetic
by Marcia B. on Mar 24th, 2011

I saw 4 different doctors in consultation for a breast enlargement and lift. I started with Dr, Rifai, and ended up choosing him. The decision was easy. I have two friends who have had tummy tucks with him and rave about Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery, and when I met him I understood why!. He spent time with me, listened to me, and sounded honest and caring. I checked his experience, and didn't find many others with 27 years in the field. Sadly, two of the other surgeons were hurried, inattentive, and I could tell I was just a number to them. This is my opinion...

I had a tummy tuck a year ago and the only regret I have is that I didn't do it sooner. I love Dr. Rifai and his staff. His nurse Mary took care of me just like my own mom would have. I refer everyone to Dr. Rifai.

I was very pleased with the results of my facelift. The staff and Dr. Rifai took the time to make me feel very comfortable at their office.

You lied to me, almost killed me, and now I am scared for life! No amount of money can ever give me what you have taken! SHAME on you!

Being a doctor myself I chose a plastic surgeon very carefully and flew in for surgery from West Coast. 4 years after breast augmentation and eyelid surgery and still happy with results! Dr.Rifai is very personable, has impeccable bedside manners and is one of the finest country's surgeons who constantly attends continuing education seminars to stay updated with the newest procedures plastic and cosmetic surgery has to offer. I understand that results might not be ideal since god did not create us perfect and Dr.Rifai is no god but I highly trust his skills and even referred my mother for a facelift which she is extremely happy about. His staff is very professional, the facility is above average typical surgeon's suite and the post-op care you get from the doctor is superb. Thanks again Dr.Rifai. I am planning on flying back to Michigan for another surgery in the near future.

Dr. Rifai performed lipo and a tummy tuck on me few years ago. The surgery changed my life. I was always two sizes larger on the bottom than the top. Now I am the same size all over. I had a wonderful experience. Dr. Rifai was very professional and caring and the staff was great. I have since reffered many of my friends and family to Dr. Rifai. In my view, he is the best.

You couldn't ask for a better doctor show details You couldn't ask for a better doctor

Dr. Rifai is the BEST in his field. I have been going to him for 20 years. I've gotten a nose nob and 2 breast surgeries (the second breast surgery was done 20 years after the first one and that was done because I wanted to go a little larger in size after having 2 children.) I've also had minor things like botox and spider veins removed. Dr. Rifai and his staff are the best! He takes the time to listen to how you feel and he won't preform procedures that he feels you don't need - MOST DOCTOR'S ARE IN IT FOR JUST THE MONEY BUT DR. RIFAI TRULY CARES ABOUT HIS PATIENTS AND THAT'S REFRESHING! My husband just scheduled a lipo and chin procedure with him. We both have 100% confidence in this man and recommend him to anyone who is looking for great results with compassion and honesty.

I had two procedures done by Dr. Rifai so far, and I am very happy with the results. People think I look so much younger. My kids' friends say I am hot!. I am so glad I was referred to Dr. Rifai by a friend. I work in the medical field and have seen many wrondoings by doctors and plenty of them have no bedside manners. Dr. Rifai and his staff are very caring, warm and very professional. As I was once referred to him, now I refer my friends when they mention they need something done. Thank you so much Dr. Rifai, You are the best.
