In my mid 60s now, very active: still working, dance regularly, travel, enjoying my grandkids and more free time than I ever had before my present semi-retirement. Busy enough not to notice my aging, yet aware of the fact that dance partners prefer younger (looking) partners. Plus... refused to have my children see what aging can do to otherwise vital individual, I decided to do something about it. After interviewing several doctors, and collecting recommendations, I selected Dr. Richards of Cosmetic Surgery Associates. Truly a wonderful choice. It has been over 3 months from my fairly extensive procedure (eyes, chin, lift) I feel and look great! Men never pass me by for a dance partner and (some) women tell me how great I look (while others are simply envious:) Jokes aside, I will recommend Dr.Richards to any woman who is interested in enhancing her looks: professional, honest, friendly, and appreciative doctor and staff of CSA made all the difference. One more thing: day after surgery I was eating almonds feeling no discomfort whatsoever. Who else but a magician could offer surgery like this?!

Six years ago, in the middle of my first pregnancy, I woke up to Bells Palsy. I had never heard of Bells before and had no idea what was happening. At a time of one of the greatest moments in life (being pregnant), I looked like I had a stroke....with severe drooping on the right side of my face. At 35 years old, pregnant, and working; I was forced to pull myself together enough to not just stay in bed due to depression. Long story short, I was so very excited about having my son, but was hoping someday I could maybe address the drooping on the right side of my face. After being told by so many cosmetic surgeons they wouldn't even see me, I found Dr. Franklin D. Richards! After a consultation, I knew that he was the Dr. for me! Post-op, I honestly could not be happier. Dr. Richards was extremely professional, caring, and honest and now for the first time in six years, I'm not ashamed to have my picture taken with my family and smile. Thank you so much Dr. Richards!

After meeting with 4 other cosmetic surgeons over a year I decided to go with Dr. Richards for my breast augmentation, tummy tuck and a little bit of lipo around my arm pits. I'm so happy with his work, his staff is terrific and I've recommended him to my close friends.

Relax and let him work his magic. Don't expect him to suggest any procedures, but he is a gifted artist and physician. I had a facelift, upper and lower eyes, neck, filler and botox. I look refreshed and youthful and think it's the best thing I ever did for myself. I picked the best surgeon on the planet. I hope he isn't too busy working on you to see me next time I need a nip or a tuck!
