I had a deviated septum, and a pretty bumpy nose before I went to Dr. Ricciardelli. He was very straightforward and really listened to what I wanted and needed. I felt well informed and very confident going into surgery, and my nose looks fantastic now. it fits my face so naturally. I couldn’t be happier with the results!

Dr. Ricciardelli and his staff were amazing! I knew Summit was the right choice the day I had my consult. They were very quick to book me due to the fact I was wanting the procedure as soon as possible. I had three areas done: flanks and inner and outer thighs. I noticed results within a day, and swelling/bruising were minimal. I only needed pain medication up to 24 hours after, and returned to work within 48 hours. It was all totally worth it, and I would do it again no questions asked. I am 5′ and 108 lbs, and no longer have my pesky love handles!

I had breast reduction surgery with Dr. Ricciardelli six weeks ago. He was warm, respectful, attentive, and soft-spoken. He took his time answering all questions and never acted like he was in a hurry.

I had a breast augmentation two years ago performed by Dr. Ricciardelli and couldn’t be happier with the results. He was very professional and compassionate during and after the procedure. I recently went back to him for Botox and filler and am once again very satisfied with the results. He’s very conservative in his approach and knows exactly what to do to make you look and feel your best!

Dr. Ricciardelli and staff are nothing short of amazing. I chose to have my breast augmentation at Summit after several consultations for several reasons, including his previous before and after results, his experience and knowledge, and likewise with his staff. I was nervous going in, but would do it again in a heartbeat. My results exceeded what I expected and I feel like a new woman. Thank you, Dr. Ricciardelli and his team!

I have wanted to have my neck fixed for over 16 years. I consulted several different surgeons in different states through the years before finding Dr. Ricciardelli. Even then it was a year from my first consultation with him that I finally made the decision. I hated to spend the money on myself and I was nervous about going under anesthesia and putting myself at risk for vanity. The staff never pressured me. They were honest, understanding and helpful. I am now 2 weeks out from surgery and the results are even better than I had hoped for. And I look so natural! I am so happy that I finally had this procedure. Thank you Dr. Ricciardelli and your entire team for the outstanding care I received! I definitely recommend Dr. Ricciardelli!

I was very apprehensive about my consultation appointment with Dr. Ricardelli but the moment I walked up to the reception desk that all faded away. The ladies at the desk were wonderful. They put me at such ease that when I saw Dr. Riccardelli, I knew I was in the right place and he was the right surgeon. Dr. Ricardelli and his assistants held my hand and walked me through everything. At the end of my consultation I was excited and couldn’t wait for my surgery. The surgery went very well. They explained in detail everything I needed to do to facilitate my recovery. Dr. Ricardelli called me at home to check on me the night of my surgery and the next few days until my post surgery appointment. I was back at work by January 11th, but you still have to take it easy! If you do what Dr. Ricardelli and his staff tells you to do, your recovery will me much easier and quicker. I had been to other offices to get “estimates” on the procedure but Dr. Ricardelli and his staff made me feel so very comfortable I knew I was in the right place. I didn’t feel like they were just in it for the money.

Dr. Ricciardelli and all of the staff at Summit Plastic Surgery in Wilmington NC are the best. I had filler put around my nose to create a better shaped nose for me. The procedure time was 5-10 minutes. I had minimal swelling and bruising that lasted a couple of days. This procedure is a great way to start if you’re considering rhinoplasty. I wish I did this a long time ago. Very happy with the results.

At the age of 51 I finally got the courage to have a breast reduction and reconstruction. As a developing teen my bra size was a double DD headed upward into larger sizes as I aged. My entire life I was self-conscious and embarrassed by my large breasts. Clothing never fit – exercise was always difficult – and my self-image was poor. Dr. Ricciardelli and his staff were outstanding. The knowledge and expertise Dr. R possessed was obvious immediately and I was quickly put at ease. It is not a minor surgery – although not as painful as I thought it would be. My complete recovery – no soreness at all – was 3 months. I was up and moving in a couple of days. Today my breasts still amaze me. They are firm and perky for the first time in the last 20ty years. I can buy button down shirts, jog with a regular sports bra, feel attractive and not a freak. My husband is extremely happy! It has been five years since the surgery and I am still so happy and grateful I got up the courage have this done! Best Surgery Ever!

Like most of us, I generally do not write reviews unless I have a negative experience. THIS TIME, I felt compelled to share a most positive experience with anyone thinking of having Plastic Surgery. As recently as last week I had surgery on both eyelids and brows. I had diminished visual peripheral vision and sagging old looking eyes. Dr. Ricciardelli was wonderful in changing that! I had surgery and in less than a week see so very much better and, in my opinion, am beginning to see years fade away!!. I would highly recommend both the procedure and Dr. Ricciardelli of Summit Plastic Surgery and Dermatology. I had very little down time, I had no pain after the procedure and had clear and easy aftercare instructions from the doctor.
I must admit, I avoided moving forward with the procedure but now realize I just wasted time looking and feeling better! Thank you Dr. Ricciardelli! You are the BEST!!

Under the direction of my ophthalmologist I was given a test that showed that my field of view was decreased due to the drooping of my upper eyelids. The ophthalmologist highly recommended Dr. Ricciardelli of Summit Plastic Surgery of Wilmington , NC to perform upper eyelid surgery. The Ophthalmologist even stated that when the time came that she needed eyelid surgery she would have the procedure done by Dr. Ricciardelli. His entire staff was welcoming, extremely professional and highly efficient. Dr. Ricciardelli and his team that worked with me were very concerned about my medical well being , encouraging me to be extremely careful with post-op care to avoid any infection or complications. Interestingly a close friend of mine had the same surgery performed at a highly rated Ophthalmology Hospital in Raleigh, NC. She was not give the directions for post-op care as I had, nothing about using special drops or using only new eye make-up . And she had to return for the surgery to be done again as not enough of the upper eyelid had been removed to give her a full field of view. I was extremely pleased with the treatment I received while under the care of Dr.Ricciardelli that five years later, in 2015, I decided to have a facelift and knew Dr. Ricciardelli was the doctor I would want and trusted to perform the surgery.

My eye doctor recommended I have my eyelid lifted for peripheral vision in my left eye. I was concerned about side effects and healing. Much to my delight, not yet one month after, I am completely healed and my vision is incredible. I am so grateful to the anesthetist who completely understood me and took extra special care to alleviate any fear I had. I am also thankful that I chose Dr Ricciadelli, a Dr who truly cares about his patient, to perform the surgery. I wear progressive lenses and now understand why it was always so difficult to make my glasses. That will no longer happen because while he fixed my eyelids, he added a brow lift. I couldn’t be happier! I used to wear my sunglasses all the time – now, I only where them when it’s sunny!
