Breast Augmentation

Dr. Haws was very thorough with me from the consultation to the post operation appointment. Surgery day could not have gone any better and I felt entirely comfortable going into the surgery. My augmentation looks wonderful and the scars are minimal, I could not be happier!

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Haws and Staff was amazing. The process was flawless. They worked to get me in and make things happen during a very specific time period that worked with my schedule. Everything was amazing! [Single best thing is...] The excellent results

Face Lift

You truly give honest advice and realistic options. Everyone is helpful and kind. I never feel rushed, awesome experience.

Breast Lift

My surgery experience went smoothly overall. Dr. Haws understood my goals from the beginning. I had a breast reduction and breast lift and the results are fantastic. I did have a scar revision office procedure about a year after my surgery. The doctor did not charge me for this and my scars are healing and fading nicely. Dr. Haws is both professional and personable, her staff is competent, and I felt that I was in good hands all the way through.

Eyelid Surgery

Fast recovery and great results. [Single best thing is...] The fact that I was well informed about the procedure and aftercare.

Breast Augmentation

She made me feel extremely comfortable, I was very nervous meeting her, and she made me feel at ease. She has a great bedside manner and a great sense of humor! I had breast augmentation about 11 years ago, and had been disappointed in the results, Dr. Haws listened to my concerns and helped me determine the size and implants that were going to make me the happiest, and she succeeded!!


The experience was wonderful because the results were exactly what I expected and more. Dr. Hawes, made sure I was satisfied with the results.

Male Breast Reduction

Everything went as expected and just as Dr. Haws had laid out. Healing was faster than I expected and the outcome was just what I desired. Staff was helpful and pleasant to work with. Follow up appointments were fast and easy. I could not be more pleased. the outcome was just what I wanted, exceeded my expectations

Mini Tummy Tuck

This is my third surgery with Dr. Haws. I’ve had great experiences each time. Wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Breast Reduction

The entire team at the surgery center was fantastic. Everyone on the physicians team was a woman. It was so incredible to be cared for by such a caring, dedicated team. They were fantastic! Wow. I waited until I was 43 years old to have my very large breasts reduced. I should have done it sooner. I can run. I can jump. I can wear normal clothes. I ride horses competitively and this has changed my riding immensely. I am more secure in the saddle. I used to have back pain every day after riding. I don't have that anymore. I can't even imagine how much better it must feel to my horse too!

Breast Reduction

Dr. Haws was so amazing before, during, and after the procedure. Everyone involved made me feel so comfortable. I felt like she heard my concerns and addressed them completely. Her attitude towards everything was above and beyond! Thank you all so much for giving me my confidence back! Dr. Haws has been so comforting and reassuring during the recovery time. I know the type of procedure I had takes time to heal and things aren't always the way they will be right away and she has been so patient and has listened to all of my worries with such a caring heart. I couldn't be happier that I chose Dr. Haws and her staff!

Tummy Tuck

The surgeon was highly professional and made me feel very comfortable and secure. I have a lot more confidence. My social anxiety has decreased, so I worry less about interactions with others. I am able to be more effective in my personal and professional roles.

Breast Augmentation

Tummy Tuck

Everything turned out great and I feel well informed about the entire process. Also Dr. Haws squeezed me in at the last minute to add some additional procedures which I am so thankful and really appreciated. Not depressed every time I look in the mirror.

Face Lift

Everyone is extremely helpful and patient. This is a life changing operation and having a staff that is so supportive and kind is the difference I continue to choose Dr. Haws and staff. Thank you all!


The surgery went well and I am very satisfied with the result of the surgery. It has improved my health and physical comfort.

Breast Augmentation

The surgeon was very knowledgable in guiding me to a decision for surgery. All the staff was friendly through the entire experience. I enjoyed the process! I am a lot happier now with the way I fit in clothes and with my overall experience. I appreciate the size recommended by Dr. Haws.

Breast Reduction

Everyone from beginning to the end made me feel special and important. Everything was explained carefully to me and with great excitement!! I can only say I wish I had done this procedure years ago. The procedure has given me better self esteem. I can wear cute outfits now. I don't feel self conscience.

Breast Implant Removal

I highly trust and value Dr. Haws. I would always turn to her in any circumstance requiring a cosmetic surgeon. I feel so much better after explant surgery!! Best decision I’ve ever made! So many medical issues have disappeared! Mainly my fibromyalgia after 25 years is gone! I feel like a new woman!

Breast Augmentation

Great experience with all the staff and Dr. Haws. Felt comfortable the entire time. The lipo to my underarms really accents the lift and love how much perkier my breast’s are.
