Patients typically describe Dr. Mark Richards as a caring and creative surgical artist of extraordinary abilities. His plastic surgery training in Boston included Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Lahey Clinic, Boston University and Harvard Children’s Hospital. While in private practice, he has taught plastic surgery residents from the Georgetown University Hospital and Johns Hopkins University Hospital in aesthetic surgery.

Every patient is unique in needs, appearance and individual desires for improvement. Communication is as critical as the analysis of problem and creation of a plan for rejuvenation. Dr. Richards’ professional joy is the happy patients for whom he has restored a rejuvenated and natural appearance.

In private practice for over 30 years, Dr. Richards has been an innovator in plastic surgery. He developed new techniques and ways of thinking about aesthetic problems, and better techniques to address them. He has published new surgical ideas and procedures in plastic surgery journals and presented them internationally. He does not believe in patenting his surgical techniques and creating trendy names as sales gimmicks. He would rather all surgeons and patients benefit from improved techniques without restriction.

Technological advances continue to elevate the quality of results by plastic surgeons. However, technology alone cannot give better outcomes. The combination of wisdom and experience coupled with the proper use of technology can deliver exceptional results. Still, patients need to remember that both surgical and non-surgical techniques require healing. Healing is a process that varies greatly between people. Exceeding expectations is always the goal at Ageless Impressions Plastic Surgery Institute.
