Dr. Rusca is currently under investigation by the Georgia Composite Medical Board for a botched juvederm injection in my lips. He overfilled the lips, left me with an exceptionally large lump, and then refused to inject hyaluronidase, LIED to me - saying hyaluronidase didn't even exist, and then injected steroids into my lips, which degraded my natural tissue. 3 months later, my lips are still damage. I've had to spend hundreds with another surgeon to attempt to correct the problem caused by the poor injections and, even worse, the Kenalog. Dr. Rusca acknowledge I had poor results, but said "no results are guaranteed" and refused to even refund my money, even though I had to spend HUNDREDS on top of the original injections and have PERMANENT damage in my lip. This old coot shouldn't still be practicing. If he can cause such damage with fillers, imagine how horrible the experience of someone who actually goes under his knife.
