Patient Testimonials

“Honest Plastic Surgeon. I am so excited about my results from surgery with Dr. Law! I look like me, young, fresh, happy, pretty. Two years ago I had consults with 2 other plastic surgeons. I don't think they are bad doctors, but something just didn't feel right. After meeting several of Dr. Law's patients and seeing how beautiful and natural they looked I felt like he was the one. Once I met with him, I was 100% confident. I did a lot of research and even though I knew he was the right surgeon for me. I asked a million questions and they were so happy to answer everything. I asked about lawsuits and complications and he's clean a whistle! I had concerns about my eyes but said I wanted a full facelift to be sure my result would be even. He told me I didn't need a facelift. He showed me on photos of my face how a small amount of fat grafting on my jaw area would give me the look I wanted on my profile. It was amazing! His recommendations were completely different than the other surgeons. They all suggested removing fat from below my eyes and an invasive endoscopic browlift that would have lifted my brows in the middle, not just on the outer edges. Dr. Law added fat to my lower eyelids and did a minimally invasive browlift on the outer brow only with one tiny incision in the hairline. He told me he rarely does endoscopic brow lifts any more. The result of my surgery is so natural and beautiful. I look just like me but so much younger, fresher, and happier. I feel so beautiful! Dr. Law is so kind warm and caring and so are his nurses and all the staff. They are really amazing. I told Dr. Law he can show my before and after photos to anyone. Go to his office and ask to see me!”
“My breast implants look completely natural. I have told some friends, otherwise no one would know. My Experience with Dr. Law was wonderful. A true artist and a very kind man.”
“One of the BEST…. I am a 36 year old mother of three and was looking to have plastic surgery since I am not planning on having anymore children. I searched for a plastic surgeon for years after giving birth to my last child, keeping various websites bookmarked in my computer, when I came across Dr. Michael Law's website. I liked his philosophy, education background and experience, so I made an appointment. I live on the west coast so in traveling to North Carolina I hoped that I would not feel disappointed. My friends even questioned why I would travel all the way to North Carolina when I live four hours from LA. I'm glad I made the trip! What I found was a very intelligent, kind, mild-mannered and conscientious doctor who cares about his patients, the best individual results possible and overall safety. Dr. Law really takes his time and gives you something to think about in terms of various alternatives. His work is tailored to you. I booked a surgery date soon after my initial consultation for a tummy tuck and breast augmentation. I returned to have my tummy tuck and I could not be more pleased with the results. I have my pre-pregnancy waistline (okay maybe a little better than the pre-pregnancy waist) back! Dr. Law may be slightly pricier than other doctors but his work speaks for itself and is well worth the price. Whenever I show anyone my results, they may say that they have found a cheaper doctor but they will not say that the work/results are as good. Additionally, I believe that certain qualities in a person are unquantifiable; integrity, honesty, compassion etc. Dr. Law has these qualities. I felt like I could trust him to do the best job. I had a benign breast lump which prevented me from having the breast augmentation that I wanted. Dr. Law expressed genuine concern about my condition and even gave me some insight into additional testing and procedures that I have the right to request. I plan to return to North Carolina for my breast augmentation when my doctors here give me the okay. I highly recommend him to people who are looking for a quality doctor and great results. He's a wonderful doctor and an even better person.”

Making breast augmentation appear natural

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

It can be very frustrating for patients who do not achieve the ideal result. If your surgeon is a board -certified plastic surgeon, I would urge you to share your concerns with him or her. A common issue that leads to an unnatural appearance after breast augmentation, even with implants of an ideal size, is inadequate lower pole dissection and/or inadequate release of the pectoralis major origin just above the inframammary fold. As a result the implants sit too high and appear excessively full in the upper poles while the lower poles - which should be the fullest area of the breast - are underfilled. In many breast augmentation patients, the inframammary fold needs to be lowered in order to allow the implant to rest at a level that appears natural relative to the position of the nipple and areola. In a revision like this, Gala Form or Strattice may be used to help keep the implants from dropping or changing position after a revision.

Breast Lift with Breast Augmentation (Implants)

Breast Lift

Member Response:

I regularly perform breast augmentation surgery for patients who participate in body building, fitness and figure competitions. While many are initially concerned about subpectoral placement and the potential for distortion of the appearance of augmented breasts when the pec major muscles contract, I am absolutely confident that the aesthetic outcome for these patients will be far superior with implants placed in a subpectoral position. A pre-pectoral (aka submammary) implant in a slender patient, especially one with well-developed muscles, looks just as you imagine it would: like a foreign object, not like a natural-appearing breast. I understand the need for a rapid recovery as many of my patients are very athletic. Recovery is shorter today than in years past due to pain control during surgery. I urge you to think about the lifetime result.

Restore my breasts

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

It is understandable that your breast have changed over decades. Yes, you can enhance the size and shape of your breasts with breast augmentation. The result can be achieved with breast implants. Because at one time, you wanted smaller breasts, you should seek out a plastic surgeon with a lot of experience providing natural looking results for small chested women.

Neck gowel tightening

Body Contouring

Member Response:

In my plastic surgery practice we offer several lasers and other non-surgical options for skin rejuvenation. The results can be dramatic and wonderful. However, they are not for everyone. Really, the younger the skin, the more effective a laser treatment will be. Excess skin or heavy jowls will really not improve without surgical intervention. Non-surgical options are not always a replacement for surgery. It is best to have a consultation in a plastic surgery practice that offers surgical and non-surgical options. Better to save your money than spend on a treatment that will not provide the desired result.

Gynecomastia

Breast Reduction

Member Response:

I see many young men for gynecomastia, or enlargement of the breast area. It is a common issue and surgery can be absolutely life changing. This is the only surgery I will perform on minors. If you are 20, it is unlikely that the gynecomastia will resolve without surgery. Many of my patients are very fit and slim, yet they have excess fullness in the chest. I have has other patients with some excess weight work hard to lose weight, only to keep the fullness of the chest area. Gynecomastia corrections seems like a straightforward surgery. But really, expertise is required. The goal is a smooth, even result with little to no visible scarring. I urge you to seek out board-certified plastic surgeons with special interest and expertise in gynecomastia surgery.

Gynecomastia Surgery for Minors

Breast Reduction

Member Response:

Gynecomastia is the only surgery I perform on minors. If a young man's self-esteem is suffering because of gynecomastia, and the condition has lasted over a year, a family may want to consider surgery. If you elect to have surgery, make sure that the surgeon you choose uses an approach that is designed to avoid obvious scars as that may make you self-conscious about removing your shirt. Incisions limited to the inferior areolar border can result in most cases in scars that are faint to even invisible. The excision of fibrous tissue can be done by a direct approach using an inferior areolar border incision, or by means of an arthroscopy shaver that can be used to ‘chew up’ the fibrous tissue from an incision placed in the underarm area (for bare-chested or limited chest hair patients. Gynecomastia surgery in males of all ages can be life-changing and confidence building

tear trough fillers

Dermal Fillers

Member Response:

Patients cannot "share" syringes of filler. My nurse injectors can almost find a way to distribute filler in other areas of the face. A small amount can be placed in temples, corners of the mouth, cheeks, etc. An expert injector will not over-fill. Remember, you are paying for the expertise of the provider more than the material of filler, and a little can go a long way. Tear trough area can be tricky. We don't use filler too close to the eye. It can result in visible ridges. Fat grafting can provide beautiful, natural and smooth results. Before you move forward with filler, be sure to view multiple photos of results provided by your provider.

Cool sculpting , Sculpture or Liposuction?

Liposuction

Member Response:

In my practice, I offer CoolSculpting in addition to liposuction. Although liposuction is the "Gold Standard" and, in the right hands, very predictable, having absolutely no down time is appealing to many people. Without seeing the area of concern, it is hard to know which, if either makes the most sense. You might wish to view before and after images of liposuction and CoolSculpting that has been performed by a plastic surgery office you are considering. View many photos of actual patients, not just stock photos. Ideally, a practice should have at least ten examples of the procedure of interest. Many well trained plastic surgeons may elect not to offer CoolSculpting, but might be very accomplished in liposuction surgery. The one area of the body we do not perform CoolSculpting is the chin.

Nipple release

Breast Lift

Member Response:

I'm sure it is frustrating to see no change in your nipple inversion six weeks postop. Nipple inversion is caused by tethering bands of fibrous connective tissue that pull the nipples inward and prevent them from projecting outwards. Two modifications of the breast anatomy below the areolas are generally required to create a fully everted (outwardly projecting) nipple: 1. Complete release of tethering connective tissue bands that are pulling the nipple inward. 2. Placement of tissue in the space where the tethering bands were released to hold the nipple everted while the surgical site heals, and to prevent scar tissue from forming at that location which might create a recurrence of nipple retraction. If your nipples have never projected outward postoperatively, then there was either incomplete release of the tethering bands, or inadequate tissue inserted into that space to hold the released nipples in an outwardly projecting position, or some combination of the two. Without question you will require a secondary surgery to achieve outward nipple projection. I would advise against early reoperation, however. Nipple eversion surgery has the potential to reduce nipple blood flow somewhat, so the blood supply of the area needs some time to recover. Additionally, you underwent a mastopexy (breast lift) procedure performed simultaneously, which also can - at least temporarily - reduce nipple-area blood flow. I strongly recommend giving your breasts six months to recover from the mastopexy and attempted nipple eversion procedure. Then make sure your surgeon can clearly describe to you, ideally with the help of hand-drawn diagrams, their plan for achieving complete and lasting nipple eversion when your second procedure is performed. A technique that I have found to be very reliable is the elevation of a flap of subareolar tissue on each side of the nipple. Each flap is passed through the area of tethering band release to the other side and secured with sutures. These flaps hold the nipple in its newly everted position, and prevent recurrence of nipple retraction. The flaps represent vascularized, living tissue, so they will not disappear over time as can often happen with dermal-fat grafts and packaged graft materials like acellular dermal matrix (ADM). The linear scar on each side of the areola (from flap elevation) is usually faint to even invisible over the long term.

Which procedure?

Breast Lift

Member Response:

This is an excellent question. Many women looking for a breast lift have extra skin. A breast lift can address that issue to give you the profile you desire. Depending on the amount of skin, the shape of your breasts, and the outcome you desire, there are many options. Some women with flattened upper poled can benefit from an auto-augmentation mastopexy. This procedure can reposition breast fullness to the upper pole for a more youthful profile. In some cases, women may elect to have an implant if they want additional fullness. Breast lift patients are some of the happiest [post-operative patients I see. Look at many before and after images to be sure you and your plastic surgeon share an aesthetic ideal. After surgery, V-Beam laser can be used to improve the appearance of scars.

Mini facelift vs Thread lift

Facelift

Member Response:

If your concern is the under eye area, a lower blepharoplasty may be the procedure for you to consider. For some people, a little BOTOX and / or laser skin tightening, PRF and / or light chemical peels might do the trick. The eye area is very delicate and experience and expertise on the part of your surgeon is critical. Too often, I see patients with hollow lower eyelids following surgery where fat has been removed. This result makes them look older and less vibrant than they looked prior to surgery. Some people, with hollows, in fact could benefit from fat grafting. I would suggest looking at many, ,many before and after images and finding a plastic surgeon that offers a combination of surgical and non-surgical options to design a custom plan that can address your specific concerns.

Tattoo removal Part 2

Tattoo Removal

Member Response:

The way we would address this in my practice is with a laser. This would not be a surgical procedure. You may want to look for a Syneron / Candela Picoway laser in your area. Without seeing the tattoo I can't give you exact proving, but generally black ink is very responsive to laser treatments. Particularly if a new generation laser is used.

Tattoo Removal

Member Response:

It should not take that many sessions to remove a tattoo. Not all lasers remove all colors. Green and yellow are typically the colors that are most resistant, but a PicoWay laser can remove all colors. A consultation for laser hair removal is complimentary. The price would generally start at about $100 per session. A average of six sessions are needed. But the price can be shared during a consultation.

Knowing how big to go

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

This is a decision you and your surgeon will make together. It is important to understand that there is not a wide range of implant sizes and profiles that will look natural in each individual patient. Given your height, weight & preoperative breast profile, there really is a limited range of implants sizes and profiles that will produce a full - but natural - breast appearance. So it is important to establish from the beginning whether or not you and the surgeon that you have selected have the same aesthetic vision. One of the best ways to do this is by reviewing the surgeon's 'before & after' photos. A good breast augmentation surgeon goes into the O.R. with a good idea of what implant size and profile will work best for a patient, but makes the final decision using implant sizers By looking at many, many B&A images, you should find patients with a starting point like yours and a result that is pleasing to you.

Treatment options for depression in flank after lipo 10 days ago

Body Contouring

Member Response:

At just a few days post-op, it is too soon to tell your final result. Keep in touch with your plastic surgeon and keep all future appointments. Follow his or her instructions carefully. An indention, if it does not resolve in time could be improved with structural fat grafting. Grafted fat will create its own blood supply and become permanent. Many plastic surgeons, myself included have performed corrective surgery on patients who had liposuction performed by physicians without adequate experience. By coming to this site, I imagine that your surgery was performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon. Liposuction is the most commonly performed aesthetic surgical procedure and it is often performed by physicians who are not plastic surgeons with no formal surgical training. Lipsuction, when performed well is a surgery that requires finesse, attention to detail and expertise for the best results and the safest experience

Board Certified???

Facelift

Member Response:

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) represents 94% of all board-certified plastic surgeons in the U.S. You may confirm board-certification with the American Board of Medical Specialties. Not all boards are recognized by ABMS. Some "boards" have little regard for training or patient safety. Confirm that the MD you are trusting with your appearance and well being is ABPS certified, & that they have hospital privileges to perform the surgery you will be undergoing. Confirm that surgery will take place in a facility accredited by The Joint Commission AAAASF, or both & that anesthesia will be administered by a board-certified MD anesthesiologist. Look at many, many B&A images of work performed by your surgeon. Look for close-up images of incisions and scars A lower facelift, expertly performed should be very tolerable. Lasers can be great, but not often with surgery. Ask about recovery and post-operative protocols including appointments and who will be providing care

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Gender Confirmation Surgery

Member Response:

This is a great question. You should find a surgeon certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. And, they should have photos to share. Gary Alter MD is a board-certified plastic surgeon and ASPS member in Los Angeles with expertise in GRS. He is well known for his work in this area, and he has been doing this for many years. Visit Dr. Alter's website. He may the right plastic surgeon for you. It also looks like he has information about what to look for in a plastic surgeon for patients considering GRS. Best of luck to you.

Tummy Tuck

Member Response:

My colleagues have provided excellent answers to this very important question. Follow all instructions given by your plastic surgeon and call the office if you have any questions. Make sure your surgery is performed in facility accredited by the Joint Commission, AAAASF, or both. If you are interested, you can ask questions about the sterile processing protocol. Generally, a certified sterile processing technician will handle sterilization of instruments.

Mini facelift

Facelift

Member Response:

Many board certified plastic surgeons will have experience in performing facelifts on all skin tones. One reason that many plastic surgeons, myself included have so many before and after images in addition to showing consistent results, is to show patients of all ages, skin types, gender, etc. Everyone wants to see someone who looks like they look. Many plastic surgeons will show close up photos of facelift incisions, ideally, the incisions will be barely perceptible. By starting with ASPS as your source of information, you are in the right place.

Will a transfer of fat to the hands help improve crepey skin?

Dermal Fillers

Member Response:

Hand rejuvenation is best addressed with multiple procedures. Fat grafting, or filler and help to make hands look more youthful. Crepey skin can be improved with laser skin tightening, and dark spots can be faded, or eliminated completely with peels, or lasers. A custom consultation with a plastic surgeon to address your specific concerns is a great place to start.

“FANTASTIC SURGEON, SUPPORTIVE STAFF. After much consideration and several consultations, I chose Dr. Law for my long overdue tummy tuck. I was so impressed with the professionalism of his staff that I instantly had a “good feeling” about his practice. Once I met him I knew that this was the right fit for me. He and his staff answered all my questions, made me feel comfortable and clearly knew the things I needed to consider. Dr. Law and his surgical coordinator were so considerate of my concerns and gave me all the information I needed to make a good decision. They also had criteria that I had to meet to be a good candidate for surgery, they seem to be more concerned about my well-being than in just signing up as many surgeries as possible. His price was somewhat higher than other surgeons I consulted with, but when it comes to my body and having surgery, price is just not my major concern – surgical skill, lots of experience with tummy tucks, board certification, references from other patients, an in-hospital operating room, an overnight stay in the hospital and a realistic surgical plan are what was important to me. Dr. Law met and actually exceeded my expectations and was the obvious choice for me when I weighed my choices of surgeons against my concerns. I am wearing belts for the first time in years. I am excited about each season since now I can buy clothes that fit and are flattering. Dr. Law gave me those things back and I am eternally grateful. He is not only a skilled surgeon, but a compassionate and understanding person who seems to truly enjoy giving his patients the best possible results. I could not recommend him more highly and feel that anyone considering surgery would be well served to at least have a consultation with his office because they will learn so much and have the opportunity to have a highly skilled, well respected surgeon as their physician.”
“After Much Research I Found the best Plastic Surgeon in Raleigh. I did a lot of research to find the best plastic surgeon for me. I first looked at training, evaluated medical schools, where they received training and how the training programs are ranked. I asked my gynecologist, internist, my husband's general surgeon and every medical professional we know. Every single answer was always Dr. Michael Law. The medical professionals in the Raleigh area have so much respect for him. Finally, I hosted a “ladies night” including delicious rum drinks. The attendees shared a lot of information when I brought up plastic surgery. To sum it up, Dr. Law's patients were the women who looked great but didn't look like people who had plastic surgery. They just look natural and beautiful. Other women looked beautiful too but some had some pretty awful stories about experiences with other plastic surgeons in the area. I learned to ask about lawsuits and complications. Other plastic surgeons have some scary stories So, I decided to have a consultation with Dr. Law for my breast augmentation and chin liposuction. I loved all of his photos. His staff was amazing and when I met Dr. Law he REALLY LISTENED. I knew he understood what I wanted. I wanted to look totally natural. His photos are great but speaking to former patients was very helpful. it really helped me. They all said they felt like their new breasts have been theirs all along. After 5 months I am happy to report the same experience. It is amazing to wear sundresses, strapless dresses and workout clothing and feel comfortable and totally natural looking. My husband and I know how much better my breasts look than before surgery but friends others would never guess that I've had surgery, they just think I'm lucky to have perky breasts totally in proportion to my body and a beautiful jawline. I could not be happier with my results. Dr. Law has better training than any other doctor I could find. He is the surgeon other doctors choose for themselves and their families.”
“Dr. Law and his entire team at Blue Water Spa are paramount in aesthetic plastic surgery and medical spa treatments. As a surgeon, Dr. law's meticulous skill and precision are a personalized gift he extends to his patients. His caring demeanor and respectful disposition are reflected in his patents' loyalty to his practice. As a patient who has entrusted my body and face to his work, I can only praise his abilities and those of his staff. At each visit, the bar is raised for the next as I am always treated with utmost care and sensitivity. Due to the diligence of Dr. Law and his team, my new self has not just developed a more appealing facade, but also has grown in confidence and strength. I am grateful for Dr. Law and the efforts of his staff and recommend them proudly.”
“Very Happy With Breast Augmentation. I am very pleased with the results of my breast augmentation surgery performed by Dr. Law. When I attend formal events, go to the pool or even go to the gym I feel much more comfortable than before and I look very natural. Other plastic surgeons seemed to have before and after images that looked artificial. Dr. Law's phjotos looked beautiful. I spoke to several of his patients and they too were very pleased. His prices were higher than the other plastic surgeons I visited but this was absolutely worth the investment. he and his nurses are great and they seem to genuinely care. The care I received before, during and after surgery was phenomenal. He discussed particulars of my anatomy and how different incisions would work on by body. Together and with my husband, we determined that an incision under the arm would be best. I afraid that my breasts would be too far apart with this approach but he assured me though explanation and examples of photos that this would not be the case. he was right. The placement is perfect and my scars after just 8 weeks are invisible. I was quite surprised at the recovery. He used a pain pump and the pain was very minimal. After checking on his training, his background, the state board and looking at his photos I knew he was the doctor for me. After meeting Dr. Law I was even more convinced that he was a very good person in addition to being a wonderful plastic surgeon.”
“Best Plastic surgery place in raleigh. This is the nicest place i have been to yet. i have several friends who have had surgery and they are really happy. I have been for botox and juvederm and have always loved my results. people always think i am in my twenties!! wrinkle free skin is always in fashion. I always have a pleasant experience and have found them accommodating whenever i have had an issue or concern. I would definitely recommend them if you are interested in botox and juvederm or surgery.”
“Wonderful Experience- Excellent Staff!!!!. I had lost a lot of weight but no matter how much I lost I still had my big hips and thick ankles! I had been thinking about having some liposuction for some time but was nervous and not sure about having it done. When I went to Dr Michael Law I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't your typical sterile cold Dr. office. In fact when I walked in I was greeted and given a glass of water and sat near a beautiful water wall, with pleasant music and smells surrounding me. First I met with the surgical coordinator who took the time to answer my questions and show me many before and after photos of Dr. Laws work. The next step was meeting the Dr. himself. He was very cordial and listened to all I had to say. Then he explained to me what, and how he recommend to proceed with the liposuction. I did go ahead with the procedure and had great results! He made it look natural which was the most important thing to me! My family from out of town just thought I had lost a lot of weight and toned up (exactly what I wanted). A new and improved me. I highly recommend using Dr. Law if thinking about having a procedure!”
“Exceptional Surgeon, excellent results. I had been contemplating and researching aesthetic surgery for over 8 years. During this time I had 4 consultations, paying $100 for each of them. When I found Dr. Law's website I was impressed by his philosophy and ethics. After my consultation I was sure his website was not just great advertising but expresses how he truly believes and practices. This type of surgery is not a necessity, and I appreciate the fact that Dr. Law wants to ensure each patient is in optimum health before being accepted for a procedure. In my consultation with Dr. Law I found him to be respectful and caring, but also able to fully understand my concerns and offer wonderful suggestions. Dr. Law looks at each procedure with an artistic as well as medical standpoint for better than expected results. I knew I had made a wise choice and scheduled my surgery date with Dr. Kile, who also happens to be Dr. Law's wife. I was very impressed when she told me that their family takes surgery day very serious by getting to bed early to ensure Dr. Law is well rested and being sure he gets a nourishing breakfast. I had a full tummy tuck and after having the experience of recovering from 2 cesareans thought I knew what to expect as far as comfort after the surgery, but I was pleased to find it much better. Dr. Law strives to make his patients as comfortable as possible after surgery by using a pump that bathes the area of the incision with a local anesthesia, greatly reducing the need for other pain medication. I love the results and am in the process of scheduling the rhinoplasty I have longed for since a child. I have felt very cared for as a patient and as a person with Dr. Law and his staff. I have found Dr. Law to be an exceptionally skilled surgeon and feel so blessed to have him as my Doctor for such important life-changing decisions. Regards, D. Phipps”
“Best Plastic Surgeon in Southeast. I was ready for some changes but I didn't want to have obvious looking plastic surgery so I took a lot of time doing research. After much research and many consultations in several states I decided that Dr. Michael Law was the plastic surgeon for me. His education, training, and results are head and shoulders above any others in this region. After Dr. Law's consultation I knew he was the doctor for me. He identified issues that contributed to my aging look when we viewed photos of myself in my younger years. Some of the subtle enhancements, like fat grafting in my hollow temple area were part of the over overall effect that made me look so much fresher and younger. My surgery included eye enhancement surgery for upper and lower eyelids with fat grafting on my lower eyelids and cheeks and fat grafting to my temples and to nasal labial folds.. I had a suture suspension necklift, liposuction under my chin with fat grafting to my jawline to re-contour the neck and provide a nice transition from the jawline to the neck. He also shortened my earlobes that were stretched after years of wearing heavy earrings. Dr. Law and his staff were incredibly thorough, organized, kind both before and after surgery. He absolutely lived up to his reputation as the best plastic surgeon in the southeast. I felt completely prepared. I had all questions answered The recovery wasn't bad. My results are absolutely magnificent. I have people tell me regularly that I look like I'm in my 30's. The best part is I do not look like I've had surgery. I just look pretty amazing. I'm 50 now, my surgery was almost three years ago I think I look better at 50 than I did at 35. I told him he could use my photos so look at his office or on his website and look at his before and after photos. I highly recommend Dr. Michael Law for fat grafting and any facial surgery.”
“Breast Augmentation: Beautiful and Natural Results. I had several referrals from friends to Dr. Law for both lipo and breast augmentation. But, I must admit I was a little nervous when I went to his website and didn't see before and after photos. Well, I contacted Dr. Law's office via email and they sent me the most beautiful and natural looking breast augmentation photos I have seen, and lots of them. Dr. Law just believes in protecting the privacy of his patients from any kook who might be surfrin the web and minors who shouldn't have access to those images. I respect his philosophy. Each patient was photographed from 3 different angles front, side and diagonal and eacxh photo was consistent. I read on some site that almost any plastic surgery result can look good from at least one perspective, so I was happy to see all the angles from Dr. Law. After seeing the beautiful photos, I scheduled a consultation. Dr. Law was informative, approachable, respectful and made me feel comfortable. I was told up front not only about the surgery, but about post operative care. I was told I would be seen 3-4 times in the first week after surgery. Another doc said he would see me 1 week after surgery. That sounded scary to me. Another thing I liked about Dr. Law's office was there was no pressure. They actually said, Take your time, we are not going anywhere. If and when you think this surgery is right for you, you can call. Well, I did have a breast aug with Dr. Law my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. I look totally natural, but beautiful and proportioned. I fill out my old padded bras and think a little bigger, but not so big that it looks obvious. It is exactly what I wanted and just what we discussed. Even the girls at the gym who see me in the locker room comment on how great I look. I just recently told a few of them I've had “help” Before that they thought I was just lucky. I highly recommend Dr. Law as a surgeon who is exremely talented, scrupulous and caring.”
“Best surgeon in the area. Dr. Law gave me a chin implant and pinned by ears back (otoplasty) – and let me start by saying I am thrilled with my results. I went to three other surgeons, they all priced me lower than Dr. Law, but I didn't get the feeling I had with him. He's gentle and professional, and shows that he cares. He was upfront about what to expect, where others tried to sell me on different procedures. My surgery also included a revision, where the anesthesia was all I had to pay for. Dr. Law took my boyish looks and gave my face masculinity. His staff is professional and SUPER friendly. I'm not sure about some of the other comments here, but I've had a wonderful experience. They are extremely busy, which is reassuring when you think about it. I had to book months in advance, other doctors were willing to fit me in within a few weeks. It is true, they screen their patients carefully, as any plastic surgeon should. He is expensive, but worth every penny. In short, Dr. Law is professional, extremely friendly and genuine, his staff is wonderful, you may pay more, but in the end you'll be happier.”
“Best Surgeon in NC if not the country! I own a business in the area and wanted to refresh my look without looking “done”. I also am in the service industry and make it a practice to only do business with businesses that focus on good customer service. I consulted with several plastic surgeons in Raleigh prior to selecting Dr. Law. I chose him because I felt he listened to me, understood what I wanted and showed me amazing photos of patients who had similar surgeries. I am so thrilled with my results that I hope he shows every one my after photos! I also am so impressed with his entire staff. Each time I have called everyone has been very informative and responsive. They are so concerned about me as a patient and person that it is refreshing. I feel that everyone who works in his office is concerned about my well – being and I could not ask for more. Dr. Law is a clearly gifted surgeon and has surrounded himself with staff who are also very skilled at their jobs and compassionate. I would recommend Dr. Law to anyone contemplating any sort of plastic surgery!”
“My experience with Dr. Law was wonderful. He took his time in the consult, he understood and listened to me, and my results from his fat grafting are amazing. I am grateful that I found him and will be using him as my only plastic surgeon. – cassie”
“I had an excellent results with my fat grafting with Dr. Michael Law. He is an excellent doctor. I had a bad experience with a different doctor and Dr. Law save me with my frustrations, I highly recommend him.”
Dear Dr. Law, I wanted to pen this quick note to express my sincere gratitude for you as a surgeon and person. My results are to be fantastic! How do I know this? Well, underneath all the swelling and bruising I can see how beautifully you have restored me to my youthful self. In fact, even better! Wow, you're an artist and I won't be able to think of you without the name “Michelangelaw” popping into my head! I know the surgery took you longer than expected & it's obvious you did everything and more than you promised me and for this, thank you just doesn't seem adequate. Perhaps more important than my results is that I know how hard you worked for me to assure my results will be the best that you can humanly make happen. I see and FEEL the attention to detail you took using all your skill and expertise for my benefit. It has to be physically and emotionally exhausting doing what you do, though I see in your eyes the commitment and joy you get creating beauty; this must be exhilarating!! To find someone with a calling and desire to pursue excellence at the level you do is quite race. I'm so happy I found you and chose you as my surgeon!! Thank you, thank you, Dr. Law!
“Worth a trip. I flew from California to have plastic surgery in Raleigh with Dr. Michael Law. He performed my breast implants in February and I was so happy I came back for my tummy tuck. I knew people who had surgery with him in California and I thought, If I'm going to make a permanent change to my body, I want the best plastic surgeon and one look at my body will tell you that Dr. Law is the best. I know he has celebrity clients, I'm not one of those. I'm just a mom who wanted to look great and not done. A natural result is what is important to me. People say I look great, but nobody thinks I've had surgery. My body actually looks much better than before children. All of you in North Carolina are so lucky to have Dr. Law so close.”
“Wonderful Experience- Excellent Staff!!!!. I had lost a lot of weight but no matter how much I lost I still had my big hips and thick ankles! I had been thinking about having some liposuction for some time but was nervous and not sure about having it done. When I went to Dr Michael Law I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't your typical sterile cold Dr. office. In fact when I walked in I was greeted and given a glass of water and sat near a beautiful water wall, with pleasant music and smells surrounding me. First I met with the surgical coordinator who took the time to answer my questions and show me many before and after photos of Dr. Laws work. The next step was meeting the Dr. himself. He was very cordial and listened to all I had to say. Then he explained to me what, and how he recommend to proceed with the liposuction. I did go ahead with the procedure and had great results! He made it look natural which was the most important thing to me! My family from out of town just thought I had lost a lot of weight and toned up (exactly what I wanted). A new and improved me. I highly recommend using Dr. Law if thinking about having a procedure!”
