“My goal as a cosmetic surgeon is to give my patients confidence in their appearance. I want to give them a naturally youthful look, like a younger version of themselves. This takes an artistic eye, surgical skill and lots of experience. I believe that is what I offer my patients, and I’m thrilled to be serving the people of Chattanooga and the surrounding areas.”
