Ratings for Dr. Steven L. Ringler
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.
I cant say enough good things about Dr Ringler. I live hours away, and he was worth every second and penny. I was given top notch quailty because i choose Dr Ringler. There are alot of doctors out there who do these procedures, but only few that use the newer and higher quality things that help your recovery time, apperance, and overall feelings throughout this time. I would tell anyone thinking about any sort of cosmetic procedure to talk to Dr Ringler first.
In September Dr. Ringler preformed Precision Tx on my underarms. I have been suffering from excessive sweating since my teenage years. It has been a source of embarrassment ever since it had started and I have tried everything over the years. I had tried injections, topical medications, and diet with no permanent fix, until this procedure. My in office pre-op was made comfortable not only by Dr. Ringlers amazing support staff, but by Dr. Ringler himself. Dr. Ringler was informative, knowledgeable, accommodating, and put patient care and concern above all. On my surgery day I arrived at the surgical center and was again blown away by the level of patient care. This treatment was minimally invasive and the surgery lasted a little over an hour. I had little to no down time with nothing but a mildly sore underarm. I am five weeks post-op and could not be more impressed with my results. I have little to no sweating! I was back to my normal routine within days with no changes except the lack of over perspiration!!! I would recommend anyone with excessive sweating, or any other concerns pay Dr. Ringler and his phenomenal staff a visit as they WILL NOT disappoint!
Dr. Ringler and his office staff are very polite and professional. However, I was disappointed with the results of my coolsculpting procedure--actually up a pant size now. One side of my abdomen is slightly "lumpier" than the other, and the upper abs protrude slightly above the lower abs, almost like a shelf. I feel like crying every time I look in the mirror, and I wish that I had never had this procedure done.
Had a breast lift surgery done by Dr. Ringler. I had wonderful results and extremely happy with my new breast. The staff were very kind, helpful and friendly. Dr. Ringler showed extra care. He's very professional and knowledgeable and I highly recommend him for any plastic surgery.
