I thought I'd have to choose between a doctor that could put me at ease and a surgeon who could really deliver. I found both in Dr. John Rusca. He is an artist & more kind than I could have hoped. So glad I found him! You would be too.

I began my search for a plastic surgeon in February 2011, and met with Dr. Rusca and his staff in March 2011. I am a young cancer survivor who is now in menopause, and have suffered many physical changes that have impacted my self-esteem. Of all the plastic surgeons I interviewed, I like Dr. Rusca the best. He is a compassionate man and a very knowledgable physician. Dr. Rusca very humorously shared that plastic surgery would not do anything to save a marriage or relationship, but would only augment the body. I appreciated his matter-of-fact approach, and listened intently as he described my surgical options. His staff is nothing short of amazing. Each of them are absolutely wonderful, kind and very open to helping you choose the best decisions for your procedure. Now two months past surgery, I LOVE the work that Dr. Rusca has done for me. During our initial meetings, Dr. Rusca told me that he would not be the surgeon to augment my body in ways that appeared unnatural or uneven; he was/is very dedicated to enhancing features of the body. And I can honestly say that the work he has done is simply beautiful, and has helped me regain the confidence I thought was lost after fighting cancer. If you are searching for an excellent plastic surgeon who will be honest, funny and passionately dedicated to creating an even more beautiful body, you will not find a better choice than Dr. Rusca.

I was reviewing this site and read with astonishment the last review from a women who had her lips injected by Dr Rusca.. I have see Dr Rusca several times as well family and friends. Dr Rusca is known to give his patient's a natural healthy look. I think someone who would write such a review is someone who is generally unhappy with her appearance. I suspect she is not that attractive and is projecting her unhappiness onto the surgeon. Anyway, Dr Rusca is known for his beautiful work. If you could see my friends and family, I think we look great and natural. Further more Michele,[office manager] has always been lovely to us and not sure why this unhappy lady take a cheap pot shot at her. Oh well that is what happens, I guess, when you have to deall with the general public-- you get all kinds. NH

I was very nervous when I decided to get breast implants at the age of 48. Dr. Rusca was very professional and informative. Everyone in the office and surgery center was very helpful and friendly.It has been 7 weeks since my surgery and I am extremely happy with the results.

Given the seriousness of the decision to get calf implants, I obviously took time to research and get feedback on a number of doctors. Now, six weeks after the surgery, I am pleased to say that the results I received from Dr. Rusca's efforts have far exceeded my expectations. Not only am I thrilled with the physical appearance of the implants, but I have received an unexpected psychological boost as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Rusca and his staff for any one considering this major cosmetic enhancement.

Yes, everything is available in England, but..... This is my third consecutive year that I have been coming from South Hampton England to Atlanta due to the single reason- to get better looking face, body and legs. This time I am experiencing a beautiful improvement on my hands with liquid gel. They finally match my face (face lift), just as Dr Rusca's technique, style and taste match mine. Marvelous work! N.

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.

Rusca is a fine surgeon with years of experience, but so are many others in the Atlanta area. He is over-priced and has a poor bedside manner. I consider him unprofessional in that he will not hide his feelings for you as a patient. Don't complain or hurt his feelings or your level of care will degrade!
