The Biggest Reasons to Have a Tummy Tuck

For abdominal improvement, tummy tuck truly stands alone in terms of what it can accomplish.

Why We Prefer the Inframammary Breast Augmentation Incision

Don’t Lose Sleep Over Your Skin Care

Don’t Lose Sleep Over Your Skin Care

A recent study has linked a lack of sleep to poor skin quality. As a plastic surgeon serving sun-soaked Marietta and Atlanta, I can tell you that we don’t need any more skin-damaging factors out there.
