What is your typical process for working with a new patient?

Each patient is unique. We have a thorough consultation process. We listen to the patient describe what they are looking to change and what type of result they desire to achieve. Dr. Pollard physically examines the patient to determine what results can be accomplished. She educates the patient about the treatment plan, recovery and anticipated results. We are very honest during this process. We want patients to have a realistic idea about what to expect and to be fully satisfied with their results.

What advice would you give a patient looking to find a provider in your specialty?

Do your research. One of the most important factors that determines the success of any surgical treatment is the education and skill of the surgeon. Not every physician who performs cosmetic procedures has completed a multi-year training in Plastic Surgery or has met the very demanding requirements of passing a written and a two-day oral examination that critically evaluates their fund of knowledge, ethical standing and safe effective approach to cosmetic challenges.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

My passion for the medical profession was sparked as a young child. My father who is a retired Urologist, is my role model. And ultimately, I decided I wanted to become a surgeon. I loved my rotation through plastic surgery as a student. The surgeon that I was assigned to follow took care of all types of patients. The elderly, young, male, female. Each patient presented a unique challenge.

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

Tummy Tuck, Breast Lift, Breast Augmentation, Tumescent Liposuction, Non-Invasive Facial Rejuvenation, CoolSculpting!

What makes your business stand apart?

We listen to each patient to determine their individual needs. Not every patient is the same. We incorporates this belief in every aspect of the practice. At Pollard Plastic Surgery, we take the time to understand each patient’s cosmetic goals as well as how they evaluate their quality of life. Each individual patient is given a unique plan to meet their personal aesthetic goals.

Dr. Pollard is supported by a qualified and experienced team. Each member works together to provide outstanding care throughout the process from consultation to recovery. Dr. Pollard and her staff provide compassionate care to all of their patients and work together to fully support patients throughout their transformations.

How many years have you been in business?

What do patients have to say about you?

amazing
100% GO HERE. Every single time I walked in that office, I felt EXTREMELY comfortable. All the staff are friendly and personable. Dr. Pollard was very patient with all the questions I had about my breast mastopexy, and Tina (the medical care coordinator) went through a complete and very thoroughly prepared pre-and-post operative timeline in order to ensure I had success and comfort every step of the way. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Pollard to anyone who is considering having any type of plastic surgery completed - she tells you the truth and doesn’t set any unrealistic expectations - so there is no room for disappointment at all before or after your procedure is complete. It was the best decision I’ve made in my entire life, and I am so thankful for her 27 years of experience. I can’t say better words about her. Go go go go go!

The Consummate Professional
I visited Dr. Pollard for a consultation, as I had been thinking about this treatment for a few months. During our conversation, she was personable, professional and explained all of my options. At the end of the consult, I had resigned myself to retu for the treatment. However, Dr. Pollard demeanor and expertise put me at such ease that I decide to do the treatment that day. And while I must admit that I was nervous given that this was my first treatment, I had absolutely nothing to worry about as Dr. Pollard commitment to excellence, patience and humor made it a great experience. I highly recommend Dr. Pollard and look forward to retuing!

One Of the most caring doctor’s I have come across
Two years ago I did a simultaneous Tummy Tuck and breast reduction. Dr. pollard was exceptional and her staff phenomenal. I typically have reservations about surgery to the extent that I hyperventilate but Dr. Pollard has a calming personality that put me at ease. What is amazing is the post operation follow up. I do not hope to have more surgeries but if I did, Dr. Pollard would be my first choice. I GIVE HER 5 out of 5 STARS. ABSOLUTELY A CLASS ACT AND A TREMENDOUS AND PERSONABLE DOCTOR.
