If you have a bad experience with Richard Albin, PLEASE CONTACT ME!! See my website at plasticsurgeryinjuries dot com.

I had a faceleft by Richard Albin in June 2010. The right side of my face ended up being significantly larger than the left and Dr. Albin offered to revise it at no charge. The revision was in January 2012. I incurred a 1"x.5" cautery burn in the front of my right cheek along with some nerve damage. Tissue was also removed from my cheekbone and jawline. The front of my cheek, adjacent to the burn wound was flattened and scarred down. Since April 2012, I have spent a little over $11,000 on fillers and fat grafts into the right side of my face in an attempt to reconstruct it. Later this spring I will have another fat graft as fillers are temporary and I cannot continue this treatment plan for the rest of my life. Dr. Albin has refused to help me with this financially - he had his insurance company deal with me. Their response was that "unfortunately, these things happen" and denied my claim. My photos and the complete story are at plasticsurgeryinjuries dot com. There are no inconsistencies or inaccuracies in my account. I've been very careful to stick to the facts; I have no reason not to. I have all of my medical records. This experience has been devastating and continues to impact my life and dreams - I can't believe telling the truth could make it any worse. I have filed a complaint with the CO Board of Medical Examiners - take a look at the 'minor complication' - plasticsurgeryinjuries dot com.

I was so fortunate to have had Dr. Albin perform my cosmetic surgery. The results far exceeded my expectations. Needless to say I am thrilled with the final outcome. Dr. Albin is a highly skilled surgeon, who listens to his patients concerns, and, gives honest feedback as to realistic expectations for results from surgery. He is a man of the highest integrity, who has a real compassion for his patients. I recommend Dr. Albin to all of my friends and to anyone who is considering plastic surgery. Quite simply: HE IS THE BEST! Marie G.

GREAT EXPERIENCE - I just read one of the reviews by a patient of Dr. Albin's who complained she had a procedure done 15 years ago and was not satisfied. I wonder if she went back to him during that time period and discussed it with him. I began going to Dr. Albin about eleven years ago and have had two procedures performed by him - one recently. He and his staff are the most compassionate, helpful people I know. They always listen to any concerns I may have and return my phone calls promptly. I have been VERY happy with my surgery and would highly recommend Dr. Albin's oiffice.

About 6 Months ago Dr. Richard Albin did cosmetic surgery procedures for me. I had a facelift, a rhinoplasty and fat transfer to parts of my face that were aging. He did an incredible job - I not only look 20+ years younger, but unlike a number of my friends who had other surgeons do their facelifts, I look totally natural. He's so kind and suggested just the right procedures for me and his office staff was very friendly and supportive before AND after my surgery. I had liposuction done by him quite a few years ago and I still look great with no saddlebags or love handles. I'm so happy.

I have been to see Dr. Albin multiple times over the years and I just can't give him enough praise! He is a fantastic plastic surgeon and very professional, as is his nurse and staff. There is no one else that I would trust with helping me to look my best!

I went to Dr. Albin 15 years ago to have a procedure done with a chin implant. I was very embarrassed to have any plastic surgery done, but this was to help a bite problem I had with my jaw. Though it did help alleviate the pain in my jaw, as my face began to heal that year, I noticed a protrusion. I did nothing about it for several years, because I knew to research it, meant I would most likely have to fix it and I was still embarrassed to have had this procedure done. I have finally gained enough confidence to seek consultation regarding this implant, and it was done incorrectly. I even went back to Dr. Albin who admitted it was done improperly, but wanted to charge me an additional $2k to fix it. Anywhere else, the procedure is around $2500. I am not trying to go after money or loss of work time or compensation. I just want to get this fixed. This doctor does not stand by his work and is using the "statue of limitations" as his excuse and had an insurance agent threaten extortion if I were to write a review to let people know of this incident. Please be aware of how this man operates.

Business Response:

I regret this patient's dissatisfaction with her surgery. My policy is, and I and the patient sign an agreement, that I will do revisional surgery at NO SURGICAL CHARGE within a reasonable amount of time, generally if brought to my attention within 1-3 years. Patients are advised to return 3-6 months postop so we can review any concerns they have. I do disagree that the surgery was done incorrectly - the implant was positioned properly and securely at surgery and most likely scarred in place asymmetrically as it healed, for which chin implants are notorious. Had this patient returned any time within the first year or so postop, rather than 15 years postop, we could have easily addressed her problems within a reasonable length of time, at no charge.
