Facial Plastic Surgeon – Dr. Ransom

Dr. Evan Ransom is an Ivy League educated and Ivy League trained Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon. He is a Double Board Certified Head and Neck Surgeon and Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and fellowship-trained in facial plastic, reconstructive, and laser surgery. His practice is in the San Francisco Bay Area, serving patients from San Francisco, Oakland, Marin County, Palo Alto, Silicon Valley, Walnut Creek, the East Bay, and all over Northern California. Dr. Ransom is a specialist in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the nose, eyelids, ears, face, and neck. He performs surgery at multiple hospitals and outpatient specialty surgery centers in San Francisco and Marin County, California. In addition, Dr. Ransom has extensive training in non-surgical and minimally-invasive or “no downtime” treatments.

Dr. Ransom completed his undergraduate education at Northwestern University, outside of Chicago, and graduated with Honors in Biology (Neurobiology concentration) with a strong research focus on neurological development and neuronal plasticity. While at Northwestern, he co-directed the largest volunteer organization on campus (the Northwestern Community Development Corps). He then attended the College of Physicians & Surgeons at Columbia University in New York City. Dr. Ransom graduated with the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha honor (top 10% of the class). He went on to complete his residency training in Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, a “Top Ten” academic program and a “Top Hospital” in the United States, according to U.S. News & World Report. Finally, Dr. Ransom was selected from a pool of national and international candidates for a fellowship in facial plastic, reconstructive, and laser surgery with renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Jacono (as seen on TV on the Discovery Fit & Health network and the Oprah Winfrey Network) in New York City and Long Island, New York.

Following completion of his medical and surgical training, Dr. Ransom returned to California to open a practice focused on aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, nose, and neck, as well as non-surgical rejuvenation of the face. Dr. Ransom is an attending surgeon at the California Pacific Medical Center, St. Mary’s Medical Center, and St. Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco, as well as Marin General Hospital. He is the author of over 30 medical studies and textbook chapters and has given numerous lectures at national meetings (see In the News and Curriculum Vitae).

Dr. Ransom’s practice includes reconstruction of complex defects of the face and neck resulting from Mohs surgery, cosmetic and functional rhinoplasty (“nose job” surgery or nose reshaping), and all types of surgery for the aging face (facelift, eyelid lift, brow or forehead lift, midface lift, and fat grafting). He uses the latest in minimally invasive and endoscopic techniques. He also provides non-surgical treatments, including injectable soft tissue fillers (Restalyne®, Juvederm®, Radiesse®, and others), neuromodulators (Botox® Cosmetic and Dysport®), chemical peels, and dermabrasion. Finally, Dr. Ransom is skilled with the latest in laser treatments – both ablative and non-ablative.

Community service is a very important part of Dr. Ransom’s practice. He performs cleft lip and palate surgery with Healing the Children, a non-profit organization focused on international health (see Mission Work and Philanthropy page). He has been on humanitarian missions to Ecuador, Colombia, Mexico, and Thailand. In addition, through his work with two American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery programs, Face to Face and Faces of Honor, Dr. Ransom is proud to dedicate time and offer pro bono specialty care for treatment of domestic violence victims and wounded soldiers. Finally, Dr. Ransom is proficient in Spanish, including medical Spanish, and is happy to accept Spanish-speaking patients.

In his free time, Dr. Ransom enjoys international travel, reading historical and science fiction, watching baseball, hiking, cycling, playing tennis, rock climbing, and snowboarding. Though it is increasingly difficult to find the time, Dr. Ransom loves to draw and paint, and has a particular affinity for charcoal and colored pencil. He makes sure to visit art museums and galleries wherever he travels, at home and abroad, and frequently posts about the latest exhibits in his Blog called “Face of San Francisco.” Dr. Ransom is a proud resident of San Francisco and a Giants fan.

I had several nasal/sinus issues including a severely deviated septum and a dorsal hump, which I wasn't crazy about. Dr Ransom did both the medical and aesthetic parts of my surgery and he did a wonderful job! While I did have some swelling, I didn't experience much bruising at all. I loved that he left the natural look of my nose just making small corrections. My breathing has GREATLY improved. His office staff was super helpful in scheduling and making sure payment and everything was very clear. I am very, very, very pleased with my results!!

I had a terrible surf accident in Bali and needed to get 50 stitches to repair what the reef did to my face. I had emergency cosmetic surgery in Bali the day of the accident. Immediately when i got back to the states i was introduced to Dr Ransom through some mutual friends. I was searching for the best cosmetic surgeon in San Francisco to help in my recovery. He and his team have been amazing! he helped establish a plan for my post-op wound care/treatment and administered some initial laser treatments. Dr Ransom and his team are extremely knowledgeable and very patient / helpful. I am very grateful for their help and support. I am finally looking normal again!

I had three issues with my nose - which inhibited my breathing: 1- broken nose, 2 - narrow nostrils that collapsed when I inhaled through my nose, 3 - deviated septum. When I was living in New York, I went to see a doctor about my breathing issues, and he said my skin was too thin and there was likely nothing he could do to rectify the problem. Dr. Ransom was recommended by an ENT I saw through One Medical. As soon as he saw him, he said he could easily fix my nose, and remove the bump that had formed from the trauma. His confidence and strong sense of self immediately put me at ease, and I had little doubt that he could accomplish exactly what he promised. He showed me a modified picture of my nose , and really liked what he proposed. The end result very closely matched what he promised. Not only can I now breath much more easily through my nose, it looks much better. He managed to make it look like an improved version of itself, however I still look like me, and unless I tell anyone I had it done, it's not overly noticeable, which I prefer. I'm pretty vain and very critical, and I can say that Dr. Ransom is great, and comes highly recommended.

Doctor Evan Ransom took my surgery on relatively short order and did a wonderful job. He is very talented and has a nice friendly professional support staff. I can not thank him enough, he was calm, caring, professional and interested in the follow results of his work . He seemed to bring a certain artistry to the profession.

Dr Ransom is very kind, honest, and conscience doctor. I was referred by my best friend, she is also Doctor Ransom patient. She has so much good things said about Doctor Ransom. So I had a face lift done by Doctor Ransom on July 2015. He did a wonderful job on my face and I have a lot of compliments on my face. So if anyone want to get their face done. I would highly recommended Doctor Ransom to you. I give Doctor Ransom a five stars.

I have currently been getting botox regularly with Dr. Ransom and he does a fantastic job. My previous doctor's office moved to another location where it was no longer convenient. I didn't realize what I was missing until I went to Dr. Ransom. I felt really comfortable, but most important he did a terrific job blowing my previous doctor out of the park. (Sometimes it's good switch it up a bit to make sure you are getting the best treatment.) On top of that, Dee the office manager is an incredible asset to the office. She personalizes your visit and relationship with the office to an extent I have never experienced before. I even get follow up calls to see how I am doing after a treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Ransom for his great work, and his team's impeccable customer service.

Dr. Ransom and Dee are the BEST! Whether it's aesthetic or reconstructive, I'd trust him over and over again with my face.
