Great experienced surgeon -not best bedside manner
I interviewed many drs. while considering something to be done for the hollowness under my eyes. I chose him because of his experience level. I was 30 at the time, and did not want something invasive - he recommended a fat transfer. I did the procedure - the results were ok, but any dr. will tell you that fat transfers are iffy procedures that take better on some people than others. I also had my neck done to give me a more defined jawline. While every dr. recommended just lipo- he told me that that alone would not do the job. He cut and restructured my muscle. I was very happy with the outcome. He also did a filler in my upper lip - it did not last at all; again, this is something that works better on some people. I had had restylane does elsewhere before and it also did not last. Overall, I think Dr. Rusca is a very experienced talented dr. He is not the friendliest - but I think it's because he is approaching 70 and I was in my 30's - major generation gap. I thought his rates were reasonable considering he is in Atlanta with many years of experience.
