Our Aesthetic Services

The popularity of aesthetic treatments means that you have many options when choosing a plastic surgery home, and we invite you to learn about the ways that we set ourselves apart from other practices. Our utmost priority is gaining and maintaining your trust, as this is the foundation of any meaningful relationship between surgeon and patient.

Our country continues to face the ongoing threat from the coronavirus (COVID-19). As always, our #1 goal is patient care, and, in an effort, to ensure patient safety and the well-being of our staff, we are asking that you proactively reschedule your existing appointment if you are experiencing fever or flu-like symptoms in the last 14 days by dialing 919-876-3656. As medical professionals, we are trained to place the well-being and safety of our patients above all else, and that commitment to your health and safety is driving every decision we are making during this challenging time. We are closely monitoring all developments related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and we are strictly adhering to all guidelines issued by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and our local and state governments.

As our offices are now seeing all appointment types, urgent and elective, and again offering cosmetic services, we encourage high-risk patients as listed by the CDC (as of 4/28/2020, see the full list of CDC high-risk patients below) to make informed decisions about their care.

CDC List of High-Risk Patients (as of 4/28/2020):

  • People 65 years and older
  • People of all ages with underlying medical conditions which are not well controlled, including:
    • People with chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma
    • People who have serious heart conditions
    • People who are immunocompromised
      • Many conditions can cause a person to be immunocompromised, including cancer treatment, bone marrow or organ transplantation, immune deficiencies, poorly controlled HIV or AIDS, and prolonged use of corticosteroids and other immune weakening medications
    • People with diabetes
    • People undergoing dialysis for severe kidney disease
    • People with liver disease

These patients may still want to utilize our TeleHealth visits, which mimic an office visit with your provider and are covered by most insurance companies. If you don’t feel that the Telehealth visit is the right tool for your dermatological need, please call us at 919-876-365 and we will book an in-office appointment and make special accommodations for any high-risk patient.

It has always been our standard practice to follow strict infection control measures at each of our clinic locations to prevent patients from being exposed to illness or infection. However, at this point in time, many additional infection control measures have been put into place. Below please find a link of some of these additional measures:
