Melinda Haws, MD Reviews (245)

Breast Implant Revision

The overall procedure went well along with healing. With being able to put a bra on with implants in before I was able to know how I would look post surgery unlike the first time I had surgery

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Haws took the time to listen to my concerns and discuss them with me. Dr. Haws is very personable and her staff are top notch also.

Face Lift

I feel 15 years younger! I was so tired of my jowels and loose skin! No one knows I had the procedure done and I keep getting compliments on how good I look!!

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Haws was very attentive, explained everything and eased my mind about my surgery. Her staff is excellent! I went back for a 2nd surgery and it was well worth everything! Excellent surgeon!! Highly recommend.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Haws was very kind and thorough throughout the experience. Her entire staff was also very accommodating and helpful. My surgery was a great success- very little discomfort and my outcome is better than I could have imagined!

Face Lift

I feel 15 years younger! I was so tired of my jewels and loose skin! People are starting to compliment me almost daily! No one knows that I had the procedure. They just keep telling me how good I look!

Breast Implant Removal

Very kind staff who helped talk me off the ledge when I was inquiring about this procedure. I did the implant draining in office and have yet to remove the shells (which I worried about), but the nurses were great and reassuring. When I met with Dr. Haws she was awesome and the only PS to tell me I could do implant removal and not put implants back and/or do a lift. She told me she thought I would look great after removal whereas many other surgeons insisted I would need to replace my implants AND have a lift to have any hopes of looking normal. The kindness and helpfulness of the staff was amazing. I’m so happy I decided to remove implants as it’s the best thing for me at this point in my life. I’m also glad I didn’t proceed with a lift yet and waited the advised 6-12 months to see if it’s necessary.

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

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
