Tummy Tuck

[Single best thing is...] The results. Dr. Haws and her staff were terrific. I am very pleased with my results.

Breast Augmentation

[Single best thing is...] Knowledge by the staff on the procedure. Staff was highly trained and professional. Tasha is a great head nurse and Dr. Haws does great work. Very happy with the results and the doctor and there surgery location.

Earlobe Repair

Dr Haws and her staff are so friendly and kind. She repaired my other ear several years ago and it healed nicely. She has done several other procedures in the past and I had great results.

Tummy Tuck

The entire staff is just amazing. I am blown away at my results! My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner!

Arm Lift

I was very nervous going into my procedure. I've never had anything done like this before. For a long time, I always wanted my arms to match the progress in my weight loss, and Dr. Hawes made that happen. Recovery was so easy; I was back to my job as a teacher and SUPER light CrossFit activities that next week. Within a month of my procedure, I was picking up a barbell again. My muscles are visible through my skin, and I can finally wear medium sized clothing instead of upsizing 2-3 sizes to accommodate my arms. The single best thing has been getting my confidence back. I was so self-conscious of the unsightly skin on my arms despite my weight loss. It got in the way of my CrossFit progress, my ability to wear clothes that were actually my size, and to be comfortable with my body. Virtually in a month that all changed. I love wearing tight fitting clothes to show off my arms, my dresses and blouses fit as they should. My mobility with CrossFit has improved because my skin isn't getting caught in my armpit. This has been a life-changing experience for me.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Haws is very professional while being approachable and I always felt comfortable discussing my treatment with her. She encouraged me to be confident in what I wanted for my body and answered my questions and supported my decisions. Nurses were pleasant and seemed to enjoy their job.

Breast Augmentation


Mommy Makeover

Great staff! Honest doctors! The overall outcome is still in progress but so far it’s looking good!


Legs and torso look fabulous. Dr. Haws is a gifted surgeon.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Haws has a very light touch; very little bruising was visible. I love the results and I am not fully healed.


She is kind and courteous. Surgery was fast and painless. She came highly recommended

Breast Implant Removal

Everything about the procedure was perfect. Dr. Haws and her staff were wonderful during all of the pre and post-op appointments. It was quick and easy to get in to see Dr. Haws and the procedure was scheduled promptly. It couldn't have gone better. The staff and Dr. Haws made me feel comfortable and at ease.

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Haws was simply amazing from the first consultation. I have received so many compliments on my scar from the abdominal-pasty portion which was not easy to do. I had a c-section scar as well as an umbilical hernia. She even went back and lipoed my breasts after I felt they were still too large. She just wanted me to be happy. I would recommend this surgery for any woman who struggles with diastatis recti and or hernia- it has changed my life. She made me feel comfortable from the beginning and that I was never asking for too much. I just love her!

Breast Lift

Dr. Haws and her office team were beyond professional, knowledgeable and very nice. From the first phone call to my follow ups the staff from the office and the hospital were comforting and polite. My breasts look great!!

Breast Implant Removal

The positive & caring way Dr. Haws helped me make a decision

Tummy Tuck

Expectations were clearly shared. Surgery was completed without complications. The healing process has been as expected. I had multiple procedures and my breast are healing nicely and look the way I expected.

Breast Implant Removal

Melinda listened to me....enough said

Breast Implant Removal

I had an unsuccessful (to say the least) breast augmentation and lift by a different surgeon. 4 months after that initial surgery I met with Dr. Haws thinking I would have to wait to have my implants out as well as for any other revisions that needed to be done but Dr. Haws said we could do it right away and do it under local. She listened to my concerns and helped me feel like myself again.


Dr. Haws was very thorough about everything. She made me feel at ease about the procedure. She is very good at what she does.

Breast Reduction

First, the office ran on time and efficiently. I found Dr. Haws to be both very pleasant and no nonsense at the same time and I felt very comfortable about being in her hands for the surgery. And that confidence was not misplaced - she did an excellent job. I am so very happy with the result.
