Ratings for Dr. Derek Ford
After losing close to 100lbs, I was left with a lot of excess skin that could not be corrected by any amount of exercise or healthy eating. It was very discouraging to put in all the hard work to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle and not see the true results of my efforts. Turning to plastic surgery to correct my excess skin was overwhelming because there was so much information available online, as well as many doctors in the area. Dr. Ford was recommended to me by my family physician and I am so glad. Dr. Ford made me feel comfortable right from the moment I stepped into his office. I had scheduled several other consultations with other doctors, however cancelled them immediately after meeting Dr. Ford. He is professional, knowledgable and gentle, with a sensitivity that is needed for this type of surgery. In July, Dr. Ford performed an extended abdominoplasty and brachioplasty on me and I could not be happier with the results, the care I received, and his continued support during my recovery. He truly changed my life. I cannot recommend Dr. Ford enough! When other men and women in the weight loss community see my before and after photos, they always comment on the quality of the work that was done on both my tummy and arms.
Dr. Ford is a phenomenal artist and is very caring. I first met Dr. Ford in 2008 when I had my lower blepharoplasty performed. I was plagued by dark circles and heavy bags since my teens. I was referred to Dr. Ford from a very good friend. I visited other surgeons prior to sitting down with Dr. Ford and the other surgeons felt the bags were too heavy and they could correct my situation by using fillers which would have to be redone every 6 months at a considerable cost. Dr. Ford made me confidant that he is an expert at upper and lower eye lid surgery and showed me some of his work. I committed to doing the lower eye lid surgery and my downtime was maximum 8 days, I had a bit of bruising BUT Dr. Ford literally made me look 10 years younger! Its been 8 years and my lower eyelids look as good as the day they were done! From 2008 - 2016, I visited Dr. Ford for Botox and I must say I get better results at a lower cost because I now realize that Dr. Ford knows what he is doing and where to inject the Botox while using the least amount as possible to get the desired results. For instance, I was out of town and visited a dermatologist that came highly recommended and the results were inferior to Dr. Ford at twice the cost! Over the years we have developed a relationship and I can confidently say that Dr. Ford truly cares. He never rushes our meetings, and is a very thorough doctor that explains procedures and answers my questions in a very patient and general way. Recently, I decided to get a Nose Job. I committed to the procedure in early 2016 and Dr. Ford made very effort to accommodate my desired date. The procedure was seamless. On the day of my procedure, Dr. Ford took some before pictures and his staff made me feel very comfortable. The procedure was performed using an open approach, dorsal hump reduction both cartilaginous and bony, endonasal osteotomies, spreader flaps, reduction of the caudal septum, cephalic trim of the lower lateral cartilage and tip unification with sutures. Bottom line, I got a lot done at a super price. One thing I read is that some doctors pack your nose post the procedure to contain bleeding and the stuffiness is said to be extremely uncomfortable. Dr. Ford did such a great job that he used no packing. I was able to sleep, I did not have to breathe through my nose and the swelling was moderate and the bruising resolved itself within 4 days. I must say that when the bandages came off, I was quite concerned but remember I got a ton done. I have had several meetings with Dr. Ford post the surgery and he has been very patient and everything he said would happen post surgery is coming to fruition. The results are getting better by the day and I still have some swelling in the tip given the tip revision and Dr. Ford is confidant that the swelling will resolve but will take up to a year. Patience is a must! Getting work done on your face is scary because you can not cover yourself up with clothing. The results I received are natural and amazing. Friends did comment that I got my eyes done and they said the results were amazing. I have had no comments on my nose even though I had a considerable amount of work done. The results are natural and I still look like myself. If you are considering getting any plastic surgery done, go to an expert...call Dr. Ford for a consultation.
Dr. Ford helped me feel better about myself after Breast Cancer. He let me take as much time as I needed in his office to ask questions about my reconstruction options. After meeting Dr. Ford after meeting two other surgeons I knew that we would work well together and with his help came up with a procedure that was right for me.
Had breast reduction, very professional and minimal pain. Dr Ford was very personable and informative of the procedure and his staff organized home care and follow up. Thank you all for making me feel comfortable . Patient (S ) . My operation was May 2016 my shoulders and back are breathing a sigh of relief and no mor sweat burns under my breast, once again thank you Dr Ford and staff.
I had my first visit with Dr.Ford back in November of 2015 for him to do a breast reduction on me. After years of researching around I came across Dr.Ford after multiple people I worked with praised his work. Not only was he very knowledgable, and answered every single one of my pesky questions, but he was also very professional. As a shy 23 year old taking off your bra for a stranger you just met to look at your breasts, it wasn't awkward or embarrassing, he makes you comfortable. I was told it would be 6-12 months before I got an actual surgery date. I got a call in May 2016 to see if I could come for a cancellation apt June 7 2016. I accepted it, and it is one of the best decisions I have ever made! He did fantastic work! And I honestly don't think he knows how much he has changed my life for the better! I would recommend him to anyone who asked, I couldn't imagine a better doctor to have. Just amazing!!
I had my first consultation the beginning of June for a breast lift with implants (mastopexy and augmentation) with Dr. Ford and recently had my surgery earlier this month. From the very first visit Dr. Ford made my experience amazing and helped me make a professional decision for what's best for me. Upon the day of my surgery I was welcomed by the nurses and Dr. Ford to go over all details. I must admit I was very anxious especially as soon as I got into the operating room. However, all the staff members were very friendly and reassuring from the moment I stepped in, to the recovery room, and until I was able to go home. I had a great experience and was very lucky to have found Dr. Ford. As I am recovering still any questions I have Dr. Ford answers very quickly and reassuringly. I would highly recommend Dr. Ford and his staff for anyone planning to undergo plastic surgery.
Provides honest advice on what works and what does not work. I am glad that Dr Ford was able to help me navigate through the sea of information in choosing a procedure that was safe and reliable. I would recommend Dr Ford and his staff to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.
I had a face and neck lift with upper and lower blepharoplasty by Dr Ford approximately 5 years ago. After looking at photographs of myself from 10 years ago, I can appreciate how good the results are. I look younger than I did 10 years ago in this photos. Thank you Dr Ford!
