Best Facelift

Dr. Ringler and his entire staff do everything to make you feel comfortable and confident. I had a MAPS facelift and could not be happier. One day post-op I was able to go out to dinner without makeup. He is truly a master of facial aesthetics.

Very happy with the results and doctor!

Super happy! So glad I did it! Procedure: Breast augmentation Implant: Ideal Size: 375 CC (New bra size: 32 full C) Before: about 100 CC (small 32 A) 5'4 97 lbs 2 months in. I am soooo happy with results/size. I feel it is the perfect size for me. I don't look top heavy at all according to others. Obviously the size doesn't look natural since I'm so petite but I don't look like porn star either. I still look classy with a very nice set. I'm at 2 months in during the time of this review and I don't have any pain except a little pain when I lay on my stomach/chest. But that is also slowly decreasing. They have def dropped a lot, softened, rounded, and shrunk a bit within the first two months. The first week they looked like GIANT TORPEDOS! But my have they changed since then, for the better! Recovery: I was in a lot of pain the first week. A lot. I needed the strong meds, Valium for maybe the first 3 weeks. My breast were pretty hard and my nipples were sensitive and erect all the time for the first 3 weeks. The pain started decreasing by mid of 2nd/3rd week. I was able to start gently massaging by the 3rd week. That really helped reduce the pain and soften my breast. Doc: Dr. Ringler and the nurses were great! They all were very patient, informative, and knowledgeable. I went in the office a few times to make sure I chose the right size for me and they were so helpful and patient with my indecisiveness. I originally told Dr. Ringler I'm thinking about going 360CC but he has final say on what he thinks is best based on the pictures I showed him of what I like. I told him I want to be a little larger than conservative. He ultimately filled them to 375CC and it ended up being the perfect size! The surgery was a very clean job. No blood and no bandages. I think it was about 1.5 hour long. Advice: 1) When selecting a size, make sure to add what you already have to the end result my. I wanted to be a full C so I chose 375CC because I already naturally had about 100CC, equaling 475CC. 2) Show your doctor pictures of what you like including proportions and try to pick women that are about the same height and weight as you. 3) What your breasts currently looks like matters and will determine what your result will look like. 4) A wedge pillow and neck pillow to sleep and lean on for the first week or so really helps.

Only surgeon i trust

I cant say enough good things about Dr Ringler. I was nervous about this surgery from the begining, but as soon as i met with Dr Ringler and his team, my nervousness turned quickly to excitement and ease. From the very first visit, to the last, i have nothing but good things to say. On my last visit, i didnt see anything wrong, but it turned out my body healed alittle off. So Dr Ringler pointed it out, and quickly fixed it. I believe this is art to him. He and his staff are absolutely fantastic. Anyone considering any form of plastic surgery, needs to see Dr Ringler first. He he cant do it, trust the referral he gives you. I feel very lucky because when i choose Dr Ringler, i choose a faster recovery and easier healing process. He uses a new technique that made it so i was only out of work a week with a tummy tuck and lipo. No drain tubes!!!!! Made it only my business, and i didnt feel so grose.

Five Stars

My experience with Dr. Ringler and his office staff was excellent. I had 1 previous consultation with another doctor and wanted to have a least one other opinion from another plastic surgeon before I went ahead with anything. My consultation with Dr. Ringler went very well and I immediately had confidence in what he was saying and what he thought I would benefit the most from. I felt that he was conservative with his suggestions and maybe that was why I was comfortable with him. I scheduled my surgery that day before I left his office. The whole experience was very professional and all of my follow-up care was top-notch. It has been nearly a year and I am very pleased with my results. I have highly recommended him to my family and friends.

So pleased!

Dr. Ringler made me feel like my case was the only case that mattered. He took time to meet not only once with me, but again with my husband to explain in detail to him the procedure and recovery, and our expectations. I am thrilled with my results from my blepharoplasty, and with the aftercare I received. I am excited to see my before and afters at my next appointment with Dr. Ringler. He has incredible technique honed over his years of experience. I believe he is an artist in a scientific world. He made me feel like my outcome was as important to him as it is to me. And that is because he stands behind his work! He is an integrity filled being with a kind heart and an incredible talent for his chosen profession. I will be back--this time for my husband--you had my trust, but gained his!
