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!

Breast Implant Revision

Due to a sudden loss of fluid from my saline implants that I had for over 40 years, I called Dr. Haws office in distress. They were very accommodating and were able to see me the same day. Surgery was scheduled for the next week. The results were better than they were over 40 years ago. Great job! And everyone involved in the process were professional and informative. I would definitely recommend this practice for your plastic surgery needs. Great results!

Breast Implant Removal

The dr and her office were top notch [Single best thing is...I'm] more confident

Breast Reconstruction

I was made to feel very comfortable. Dr Haws’ NP Mandy was AMAZING. Had to call several times and actually come in twice and she did not at all make me feel silly or that I was overreacting for my concern, cannot give her enough praise! Dr. Haws is very down to earth and so easy to talk to. I’m 9 weeks post op, and already extremely pleased with my result. I highly recommend this practice! Absolutely everything about the whole experience was great, but if I had to choose just one thing.. I would have to say it was Mandy

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Haws was AMAZING. She listened to what I wanted while also offering expert advice. My surgery went so smoothly, and I experienced VERY little pain or discomfort afterwards, so much so that I only had to take my pain medication twice. I was able to keep mobility in my arms afterward, and return to work the following Monday. I couldn’t have imagined a better surgical experience than what I had. The single best thing I experienced with the experience, was feeling totally confident in my surgeon, and knowing I was going to come out looking amazing. I felt at ease, and not nervous. And of course not being in pain afterward was shockingly amazing.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Highly satisfied. Love staff. Love Dr Haws.

Breast Reconstruction

I have been to Dr. Haws for breast reconstruction several times due to two implant ruptures. Each time, the end result is worse than the problem I presented.

Tummy Tuck

The overall experience was welcoming from the moment that I first made the decision to use this practice for my procedure. All of the staff I interacted with were friendly and open to discuss any concerns I had.It was their friendliness and communication that allowed me to walk into the hospital on the day of the procedure with little to no concerns. When I look in the mirror now I feel like my body finally matches how I've always viewed myself. I'm a confident woman and my body before the surgery was the only thing preventing me from fully experiencing that confidence. It's like a burden has been lifted...or rather, cut off haha

Tummy Tuck

This flat ab is something I’ve wanted my whole life. My recovery was speedy and drain less and painless. I’m very pleased with the results. Thank you Dr. Haws and staff. Now I’m looking forward to get my face and neck resurfaced

Breast Reduction

Dr. Haws and her office team are to be praised for the high quality work they do, both inside and outside the OR. No longer embarrassed about the large size of my breasts. Dr. Haws has truly transformed my life.

Breast Lift

Dr Haws and her staff are amazing. I’ve had 3 procedures and all of them with incredible results. I would not hesitate to go back or recommend them to anyone. After losing 145 pounds, Dr Haws has helped me feel comfortable looking in the mirror and appreciate what I’ve accomplished by removing all of the loose hanging skin on my abdomen, breasts, and arms. I couldn’t be happier or more confident. She cares about her patients and goes the distance to help people look their best. I feel confident. I’m not afraid to try on clothes or look in the mirror. People who know me are amazed and happy for me. I have been told I look incredible for my age (62). I have a new life and physically feel so much better. Even my shoulder pain is gone. I love the new me!!

Breast Implant Removal

Everyone was kind, helpful and so nice. I could not find a thing to complain about if I tried! From the office staff to the hospital staff...amazing experience. I feel so much better about myself.

Breast Implant Removal

The breast lift left my nipples still pinting downward, and my left breast fold is in the wrong place. My surgeon did not seem concerned by this and gave me massage instructions and cream to use for a few months and suggested more surgery. I feel that I did not get a correct procedure that I paid for, and although outcomes are not guaranteed, i feel this procedure was basic enough that any experienced plastic surgeon should be able to do it correctly the fort time or correct it at her own expense. Instead, I feel financially taken advantage of by the suggestion of more surgery at my expense to pay to correct what was not done correctly.


Compassionate, caring team that actually listened to concerns rather than push procedures you didn’t want. The entire process from pre-op to post-op visit was seamless. I was encouraged to call for questions with a sincere interest rather than a script that is followed. The facility used for procedure was top notch. The staff there treated me like I was a person not a number. They did not ignore me because it was elective plastic surgery and “I did this to myself”. Unfortunately that happened to me before. Dr Haws corrected some issues from previous surgery and I am thrilled with the results. Her expertise is evident and I would not hesitate to recommend her. I drove several hours to see her and I do not have a minutes regret. Great experience all around.

Breast Implant Removal

The entire team is very thorough and follows up. Having experienced other plastic surgeons and practices, I was so impressed with attention to detail from Dr Haws and her team. I had my implants removed and a lift without implants put back in. I never felt like I could love my breasts because prior to having implants I always hated them. I love my outcome. Dr haws did such a wonderful job and she was able to anticipate how they would be (size wise) without implants.

Mommy Makeover

I have my old body back! How could I not be satisfied?!

Tummy Tuck

I couldn’t have had a better experience. Dr. Haws is a miricle worker!
