Meet Atlanta Plastic Surgeon,
Marisa Lawrence, MD
Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Marisa Lawrence, aims to provide her patients with the highest level of surgical skills and artistry, combined with a warm and compassionate environment. As one of the most experienced and influential female plastic surgeons in the city, Dr. Lawrence offers a full range of aesthetics services including custom facial and skin care programs, laser treatments, and injectable products. She believes a variety of surgical techniques must be available, because each patient is different in terms of their physical features and their distinctive needs. She also believes surgical cosmetic enhancement should provide a natural and balanced result.
Dr. Lawrence and her staff welcome the opportunity to help patients achieve their goals from both a surgical and personal perspective. As a solo practitioner, her patients are assured that she alone will care for them with absolute confidentiality in a sophisticated boutique atmosphere. Dr. Lawrence and her staff make patient comfort, safety, and satisfaction their priorities at all times. All staff members are experienced, personable and accommodating. Phone calls are answered personally by the staff, not voicemail, and patients are seen in the office as often as needed. During the initial consultation, Dr. Lawrence will spend an extensive amount of time with her patients so they may get to know one another and devise an individualized surgical plan tailored to individual needs, goals, lifestyles, and resources.
