"I’ve had several procedures at this office, and I’ve been very happy at the outcomes for all of them, One of the procedures was the PDO facelift. I had sagging jowls and a small chin that made them look even worse. I am scared of surgery, so I thought I’d look into the PDO. I didn’t look normal for about 3 weeks, which, for some reason, I wasn’t expecting. One side of my face was swollen and the other wasn’t - I thought maybe they’d messed up. I will say that Dr. Lawrence was very supportive, even offering to do the procedure again or something else to fix it if it remained a problem. The swelling finally went down, but then I didn’t see very much difference for the next several months. However, it’s now been a year, and the collagen production has kicked in. I now look 10 years younger than my age, did not pay a fortune, and did not have to take the risk that comes with any surgery.I see that the person I had for this (Angela) is no longer at the office,, but I wanted to explain my experience for people who might be considering this procedure.  I am going to do it again in a few years."



"Everyone was very kind and helpful.  It is a very pleasant office atmosphere."



"All I can say is WOW-Dr. Lawrence is my HERO!  I am 44 years old and I am 7 days post op from a lower face and neck lift.  I look amazing!  My neck and jowls have bothered me since my 20s.  I am so glad that I trusted Dr. Lawrence with my procedure.  She is a rockstar surgeon.  I had very little swelling and almost no bruising.  My incisions are well hidden and I look incredible.  I haven’t smiled like this in a long time. My husband and I looked at my pre-op photos today compared to the new me and he said... "Wow- you looked so unhappy in these and now you have a different glow to you!" From the consult to the surgery, Dr. Lawrence and her staff have gone above and beyond for me.  They are so kind and have the best bedside manner.  I had a mild freak out after surgery with the head wrap and Dr. Lawrence was happy to redo it for me (several times) until I felt comfortable.  She totally put me at ease.  Thank you Dr. Lawrence, Maryann, Aubrey and the entire staff.  You have made me feel like myself again.  I can’t thank you enough!"
