Excerpts from a Few Patient Reviews on Yelp

Lindsay H., Las Vegas, NV

5.0 star rating 6/4/2018

This review is so longer overdue! My laser technician, Lynette, is the absolute best in the business! She is experienced and thorough with everything she does and she is the sweetest gal ever! I have been seeing Lynette for all my skin care needs for about 4 years. The past 2 years I have been a loyal monthly client doing almost every treatment she offers.

Over 10 years ago I had a terrible experience with a laser treatment that was SO painful, caused hypo pigmentation and even left me with some scars. It took me months to heal and weeks to even feel better and ever since then I have been scared to do a deeper laser treatment. But again, this was Lynette and she knows my history and my skin so well if I was going try a more intense laser Lynette is the ONLY I would let do it.

With that being said, I had the Halo Laser done on Thursday and I am so glad I did! All my fears of laser are gone! I’m healing and my skin looks so bright and SO CLEAR! I have a few more days of healing, but WOW, it is so worth it! No complications like I had before over 10 years ago.

They allow you to numb for 1 hour in most cases. The doctor even came in while I was numbing and asked me if I had any questions or concerns before we started. On a scale of 1-10 the pain level throughout the treatment for me was a 2-3, but mostly a 2! I was shocked. I thought it would be more painful, but it wasn’t!

The technology on the laser is the best. Mapping out the measurements of the area to be treated and timed so you can feel confident it is a thorough and accurate treatment. Also, it is a dual laser meaning it’s non-ablative and ablative allowing recovery time to be quicker than traditional fraxel.

As a working Esthetician for 13 years, there is just no other person I’d trust with my skin! You’ll be in good hands with my girl Lynette! She keeps my skin looking bright and flawless.

As for Dr. Richards, aside from his surgical talent, he has an excellent bedside manner and really makes you feel comfortable when speaking with you. He is real, down to earth, affable, and doesn’t project any sort of smug or superior attitude. From what I experienced, he treats you like you’re a friend of a friend. He gives you his cell number in case you have questions or concerns, and tells you not to hesitate to call or text.

You really can’t ask for more than that, but still, he and his staff deliver.

If you are on the fence, take the time to have a consultation with Dr. Richards. The hundreds of 5 star reviews across multiple websites are not lying – they are there for a reason – and that reason is because he has earned them!

The office is really classy. The doctor has won many awards that he has displayed around the office. There is a cozy fireplace and drinks available.

I have had Botox before so really appreciated it was such a quick process. I did not have to fill out a ton of paperwork or sit with a doctor forever. I was literally in and out in 15 minutes.

I got no bruising and the results overall are fantastic. I am really really happy and will be returning.

Truly an amazing doctor and staff! I had a mommy makeover due to back pain from having twins and it has significantly helped my back pain. I am extremely happy with the doctor he knows exactly what he is doing and truly cares about his patients. The staff is very helpful and has answered all of my questions in a timely manner. Could not be more happy with this cosmetic surgeon! Truly the best in town!

There is a perfectly good explanation for Dr. Bryson Richards having the number 1 spot with over 100 5 Star reviews on YELP. Because he has earned it! Because he deserves it! Because he has an incredible team!

After interviewing 5 other doctors in Las Vegas and San Diego, I knew Dr. Richards was my doctor. He listens to me but he is not afraid to give his professional and educated opinion… and has even said no to me. His confidence comforts me. And I am convinced he has magic hands. The professional and friendly staff is equally impressive. The facially is beautifully and modern.

As an Elite Yelper, I am listing all procedures I have by Dr. Richard because I would have appreciated talking to someone that had actually gone through the procedures. So, please feel free to ask me any questions. Clearly, I am not a health care professional so please limit questions as from a patient’s perspective only. He gives complete and free consults so I do suggest starting there.

Life changing… tummy tuck, neck lift and breast lift.

Subtle changes that made a huge difference… lower face, brow lift, lower and upper eyelids.

Liposuction is a sought-after cosmetic surgery procedure for over 30 years now. It is a safe and effective technique that has enabled thousands of people to enhance their body contours through the targeted removal of stubborn fat deposits.

The key to success in liposuction lies in choosing a well-qualified and experienced surgeon who understands the nuances involved in liposuction techniques.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides liposuction fat removal surgery to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations in The Sagebrush State.

Professional Credentials of the Surgeon

The cordial Dr. Richards is board certified by the leading American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). He received training in advanced plastic surgery at the renowned Cleveland Clinic. He graduated from Cornell Medical School in New York City and was chief plastic surgery resident at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY.

The prudent Dr. Richards has won numerous awards and honors in recognition of his excellence and authority in the field of plastic surgery. He has also published scientific papers in cutting edge research areas related to the field of surgery.

Determining Candidacy

As a dedicated surgeon, Dr. Bryson Richards will first carefully determine the candidacy of a patient before recommending liposuction to them. According to Dr. Richards, suitable candidates are in good overall health and within 25 to 30 pounds of their ideal body weight. These people have stubborn fat pockets that have been unresponsive to healthy eating and exercise.

Why Choose an ABPS Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?

ABPS is the only board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. When the patient selects an ABPS board certified plastic surgeon for liposuction fat removal surgery, they have an automatic assurance that the surgeon would have received a certain minimum number of years of training specifically in the field of plastic surgery.

ABPS board certified plastic surgeons typically invest in high-quality standards and practices, adopt state-of-the-art surgical techniques and technology, pursue on-going education, and follow the latest safety protocols to provide their patients with excellent outcomes.

Attributes of a Good Liposuction Surgeon

Patients should seek the following qualities when choosing a surgeon for liposuction fat removal:

  • Warm and compassionate, transparent, easy to communicate with
  • Inclined to educate the patient on all aspects of the surgery
  • Passionate about making a difference in patients’ lives through plastic surgery
  • Providing personalized care and attention to each patient
  • Having the ability to appreciate the innate cosmetic needs, goals, aspirations, and hopes of the patient
  • Possesses detailed knowledge of the human anatomy
  • Has an artistic perspective, an eye for detail and a sense of balance and proportion
  • Adopts advanced techniques to offer aesthetically superior results in a minimally invasive manner with reduced scarring.

A solid and responsible surgeon would be willing to provide liposuction before and after images of past patients. They may also share testimonials of previous patients as necessary.

In regards to these pictures, they can be found on the website. There could be even more pictures seen during the consultation but there is a plenitude of lipo pictures present on the website. What is amazing about these pictures is that they can be seen anywhere.

Patients who have Internet access can see these pictures from their own living room couch. If that is not possible, Internet access is now available in supermarkets nowadays and about everywhere else. Dr. Richards believes in transparency and his website is a strong testament to this.  

Ability to Treat Multiple Body Areas

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure which is most useful in contouring areas such as the flanks, buttocks, abdomen, arms, hips, and breasts. The surgeon should have the expertise to perform liposuction in all these areas with authority and skill.

Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV and other suburbs and towns in this part of Nevada for liposuction.

Accumulation of excess fat tissue in the submental area can cause the appearance of double chin. This can make the chin poorly defined and adversely impact the overall facial aesthetics. Until now only liposuction cosmetic surgery was a viable solution to this condition. However, the introduction of Kybella non-surgical double chin reduction treatment has introduced a new alternative.

Starting Out Right

During the initial consultation for Kybella double chin reduction, the plastic surgeon will discuss various aspects of the procedure, including its estimated monetary amount so you know what your financial responsibility will probably be. The first goal is to help the patient make an informed and rational decision. Dr. Bryson Richards is a well-known plastic surgeon providing Kybella and other surgical and non-surgical aesthetic treatments to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding communities.

Cost Comparison with Liposuction

Many new patients seek to compare the dollar figures of Kybella injectable chin reduction treatment with those of liposuction plastic surgery. While the price of the two procedures will vary case by case, but in general, the overall impact on your checking account of Kybella will be relatively lower than that of liposuction surgery.

Liposuction may involve general anesthesia, which will add about $400 to $600 extra to the costs of the procedure. If laser technique is combined with traditional surgery, the sticker price of laser treatment may be added. Liposuction procedure may be performed at an accredited ambulatory center, hospital or in-office surgical suite, which is another key dollar amount component.

These overhead monetary amounts are typically avoided in a non-surgical injectable procedure such as Kybella. Additional financial factors such as prescription drugs, surgical garment, medical tests, and post-op visits to the office of the cosmetic surgeon may also be avoided in case of Kybella treatment.

Liposuction is likely to involve a considerable amount of downtime, and the patient should account for the loss of work days involved. On the other hand, in case of Kybella injections, the downtime will be minimal. Dr. Richards receives patients from in and around Las Vegas, NV for Kybella and other aesthetic procedures.

Average Stipulated Price of Kybella

The price of Kybella is largely comparable to various other FDA approved injectable procedures such as dermal fillers and neuro-modulators like Botox and Dysport. The treatment provider will create a detailed treatment plan after taking into account factors such as the patient’s unique neck and facial anatomy, overall body weight and appearance, and their personal aesthetic needs and aspirations.

The treatment plan will involve multiple treatment sessions, usually ranging from two to four sessions. In more severe cases, up to six treatment sessions may be planned. The first treatment will typically require a higher number of Kybella vials, while the number of vials may reduce progressively with each treatment.

The overall impact of Kybella on your bank account will be determined in accordance with all these factors. On average, a single Kybella treatment session may cost around $800. In such case, if the patient undergoes a total of three treatment sessions over three months, the overall dollar figure of procedure would come to about $2,400. Patients should also explore various financing options to make the payments in convenient monthly installments at low and appealing interest rates.

Kybella Injections for Double Chin Reduction Before After Photo

Kybella Before After Photos

Excess deposits of fat tissue in the chin and upper neck area is a common condition for both men and women. This excess submental fat can spoil the chin profile and make the chin and lower face appear aged and unsightly. Liposuction or other cosmetic surgery treatments are available to address double chin, but not every patient may choose an elective surgery.

In such cases, now patients have a new and highly effective non-surgical solution called Kybella, which is designed to reduce double chin without any cuts or incisions. Leading plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards has introduced Kybella treatment at his practice to address the aesthetic needs of patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding communities with regard to double chin reduction.

Safe and Proven Treatment

Kybella or ATX-101 is exclusively designed to treat double chin without plastic surgery. The treatment has received the FDA approval after extensive trials, and now it has become the first and only non-surgical treatment to be approved by the FDA for the reduction of submental fat or double chin.

Keith Leonard, the president and CEO of Kythera, the company that makes Kybella, says that it is a proven treatment that can be customized to match with the unique aesthetic needs of a patient with regard to an enhanced chin profile. As the treatment is non-surgical and the results are so effective, the patient satisfaction rates with Kybella are very high.

“With Kybella, physicians can offer a clinically-proven treatment that is customized to the patient and their treatment goals for an improved chin profile,” said Leonard. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Richards provides Kybella and various other state of the art aesthetic procedures to patients in Las Vegas, NV and nearby areas.

Test Results

Kybella Injections for Double Chin Reduction Before After PhotosAn international clinical development program was undertaken to determine the efficacy of Kybella. The program encompassed over 20 clinical studies and 2,600 patients around the world. In the pivotal Phase III studies, over 68% of the patients affirmed a positive response to Kybella. The patients noted fat reduction in the area below the chin. Due to this submental fat reduction, many patients also reported emotional benefits.


Kybella treatment program is tailored according to the specific condition of a patient. Kybella is administered through injections directly into the targeted submental fat area. A single treatment session can last for about 15 to 20 minutes. Most patients will require two to four treatments to achieve desirable outcomes. In severe cases, up to six treatment sessions may be performed.

Dr. Michael C. Edwards, the President of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), endorses Kybella as a revolutionary treatment with highly promising potential to transform the aesthetics field with regard to double chin reduction.

Dr. Edwards recommends that patients should select the best surgeon to achieve safe and desirable results with an advanced injectable treatment such as Kybella. The downtime involved in this treatment is minimal, and the risk of complication is very low, which makes it more popular with working people and busy moms.

Breast Lift Plastic Surgery Cost

Women who pay attention to their body image and want to look youthful often consider breast lift surgery to feel confident and good about themselves. And why not, for the procedure lasts a little over a couple of hours and produces great results. The plastic surgery involves making the breasts firm by removing extra skin and making the tissue tighter.

Women consider breast lifts if they have sagging breasts following weight loss or pregnancy, or when they have asymmetrical breasts. Breast lift is also an option for women undergoing breast reconstruction procedures. If you are pregnant or considering pregnancy, you will do well to put off a breast lift.

How is it done?

If you live in Las Vegas you could approach Dr Bryson Richards, a plastic surgeon, who will first examine you, check your medical history, and ask you to go off smoking and drinking for a certain duration before plastic surgery.

The cosmetic surgery involves making incisions; your surgeon will decide where to make the incisions, around the region of the nipples, along the crease of the breast in a horizontal manner or stretching downward from the region around the nipples to the creases of the breast. Once your cosmetic surgeon decides on where the incision is made, he will remove the extra skin, and reposition your nipples. The incisions are then closed; little tubes could be placed near the site of the incision to take out extra fluid or blood. You will also be given a surgical bra after the surgery. The procedure could be performed either under general or local anesthesia. The latter makes only the part of the body being operated upon numb.

Cost of the cosmetic surgery

Dr Bryson Richard and his team will explain to you that breast lifts are considered cosmetic/plastic surgeries and are therefore not covered by medical insurance. However, if a breast lift is performed as part of a mastectomy reconstruction, it is considered a medical procedure.

The cost depends on location of the facility, your choice of a cosmetic surgeon, and whether the surgery is performed in a hospital or a center which is also the office of your surgeon. Costs involve the facility/hospital charges, surgeon’s fees, costs of anesthesia, surgical bras and other prescriptions.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) states that a breast lift surgery could cost anywhere around $4,207, as per 2013 data. The fee doesn’t include operation venue facilities, anesthesia or other related costs. The surgeon’s fee depends on the procedure involved, experience and qualifications as well. There are financing options for patients at some facilities, so ask your doctor if there are at the Las Vegas, NV office.

Time for an image boost

If you are looking for a breast lift to improve your body image, all you have to do is locate a qualified surgeon and follow your doctor’s instructions. Maintain your regular healthy diet plan, follow up with your surgeon regularly and ensure that there are no weight fluctuations. Soon enough, the results will begin to show and you will turn into a younger and healthier person.
