Dr. Rich Greco

Dr. Rich Greco Is completely transforming the lives of his patients.

AS A PLASTIC SURGEON WITH MORE THAN THREE DECADES OF EXPERIENCE, DR. RICHARD GRECO IS GIVING HIS PATIENTS A NEW LEVEL OF CONFIDENCE THEY NEVER HAD BEFORE. “To be able to impact the quality of a patient’s life through surgery and change the way they feel about themselves is what makes my job so rewarding,” says Dr. Greco.

Dr. Greco’s approach to plastic surgery is not only about changing lives, but empowering his patients to make the best decisions for themselves. He is nationally known for his extensive research in breast reconstruction surgery. He worked with other doctors in the Savannah area to create and lead the “Turn it Pink” initiative, a breast reconstruction awareness organization that allows women to seek out their best options. He helped develop “TouchMD,” a program that allows you to review the patient’s photos on the computer monitor and morph and demonstrate the results of various treatment options.

His practice was also the only private practice to be involved in a post-mastectomy reconstruction research study (MROC) funded by the National Institute of Health. As former vice president of the American Society of Plastic Surgery and president of the Royal and Ancient Society of American Plastic Surgeons, Greco believes that continuing education and research is invaluable in the plastic surgery sphere. He serves as a consultant for medical-equipment companies in the plastic surgery field and is active in clinical research projects for breast implant manufacturers. He also is passionate about passing on his knowledge, and is frequently asked to speak at national meetings about cosmetic surgery of the breast, body, and face.

Facial Rejuvenation • Body Contouring • Breast Surgery • Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation • Aesthetician Services

In addition to being a world-renowned surgeon, some of his patients coming as far as Japan, Dr. Greco focuses a lot of his energy on patient satisfaction. He offers what he calls the Ritz Carlton experience. “I call every new patient the night before their first appointment. I call all patients before and after surgery to see if they are having any difficulties. I call them on the weekends and send text messages with videos on post-operative care,” says Dr. Greco. “It’s that personal touch that I believe my patients deserve.”

It’s that personal touch that he helps other doctors achieve, too. He works extensively with plastic surgeons in Savannah and elsewhere to help them find ways to better run their practices. “In this new internet age, we have to really focus on our patient reviews. We have to continually seek out ways to provide the ultimate experience,” says Dr. Greco. “Many doctors look at my practice and tell me, ‘That’s how you should run a practice.’ I work hard to receive that compliment.”
