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

I was scared, but everyone were nice , everything have been perfect and the result is amazing! The scar is so beautiful and small , result are just perfect and natural

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.


My experience with Dr Haws, her staff and the staff at the surgery center could not have been better. Dr. Haws is very skilled as well as talented. I think it takes a bit of an artist to be a great plastic surgeon. Melinda Haws has both gifts. She's kind, funny, clearly intelligent and inspires trust & confidence from the outset. Everything was exactly as she said it would be and I'm thrilled with my results!! I keep trying to think of more that I can have done by her!! :). I've recommended her to friends and family & will continue to do so with great enthusiasm. Wonderful staff, as well!!! SO thankful for a good experience with great results!! I feel the best thing about my procedure results are simply that. The results!!! My neck lift has years taken years off my appearance and my breast reduction exceeded my expectations. All were relatively pain free, just as Dr. Haws told me they would be. A piece of cake!! Such a positive experience!!! I did like my neck most when it was swollen tho!! Totally smooth and wrinkle free! Ha!

Breast Augmentation

Yes [highly satisfied]. I didn't like the look of my breasts from my previous augmentation 9 years ago. The scars were around the areola and we're changing and dimpling. Dr Haws released the scar tissue, smoothing out the scar.

Breast Implant Removal

I was quite happy with the surgeon, staff, surgery center and anesthesiologist. My concerns are with the post surgical appearance of my breasts and with the postop discomfort due to the ackward placement and dressing of the drains.

Breast Implant Revision

Every staff member was kind and welcoming. Surgeon was simply amazing and very engaging from start to finish. I would highly recommend Dr. Haws to anyone considering Plastic Surgery. An absolute professional with sincere care for her patients. [Single best thing is...] The results!

Mommy Makeover

Dr.Haws is wonderful. She was so open and relatable, very up front and honest when I had my pre-op consultation. While I have some scarring issues that will need ongoing attention/treatment, I am very happy with my decision to have surgery. I feel much more confident in/out of clothes! The entire staff has been so responsive and helpful, and just very encouraging through the whole process. I am very pleased with my experience at PSCON! [Single best thing is...] Clothes are more flattering, I can actually fit into a bra (no more “gap” at top of cup!), I am so much more confident and comfortable with my body.

Tummy Tuck

On December 23, 2011, a tragic event changed my life forever. It took 10 months in a hospital, and 8 surgeries to save my life. And I was left with a constant reminder of that very event by how poorly my stomach was put back together . So many scars and flaps. And the scar tissue had me stuck on the inside causing so much pain.Dr. Hawes and her surgical team gave me my life back. Dr. Hawes is a true miracle worker in my eyes. And her nurse Mandy is a total rock star. She took the time to meet me in the office at weird hours and was always available via text. Literally a phone call away 24 hours a day. My life is different now, in a very positive way. I'll never be able to thank Dr. Hawes and Mandy enough for what they've given me. It's like Christmas every day when I look in the mirror. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I don't cry anymore when I look in the mirror. My pain is gone and I can eat normally again.My nightmares are subsiding. I'm happy again

Breast Implant Revision

From beginning to end experience was great! I love the staff and Dr Haws!
