Welcome to the website of Dr. Frederick H. Watkins, a board-certified (ABPS) plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic plastic surgery. He works closely with each patient to develop an individualized plan of treatment and is dedicated to helping you achieve a natural post-surgical look. Patients who undergo plastic surgery can look forward to gaining self-confidence and a sense of well-being from looking, feeling and functioning at their best. Every effort is made to ensure that all patients make well-informed choices and achieve the best results possible within a safe, comfortable, and confidential setting.
Dr. Watkins performs a wide array of both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures, including, breast augmentation (silicone and saline), breast lifts, breast reduction, abdominoplasty (AKA tummy tuck), liposuction, thigh and arm lifts, buttock lift, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, face lifts, BOTOX®, Dysport®, Restylane® and other injectable fillers, chemical peels, and a variety of laser procedures. He also has a particular interest in helping shape the "massive weight loss patient" whether from significant diet/exercise or gastric bypass/banding surgery.
"Selecting the right plastic surgeon can be a stressful and difficult endeavor for anyone. Starting with a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery is an excellent start. A few of my personal philosophy points might help you on your quest. First, I strongly encourage anyone considering a cosmetic surgical procedure to become educated on basic aspects of the surgery. With the advent of the Internet, information (and misinformation) is plentiful. Talk to your friends. Get as much information as you can. Write down your questions/concerns and bring the list to your free consultation. I will spend as much time as I need to help you decide if surgery is right for you.
Second, I strongly believe in satisfying my patients' goals. People come in all sizes and shapes. Not everyone has the same 'ideal' of what is beautiful. A certain surgery may be perfect for one person but completely wrong for another. I will hear your thoughts and more importantly, LISTEN to you when we plan your surgery. I will do my best to help you achieve YOUR goals so long as we can do so safely.
Finally, if you go with your gut instinct, you will be right more often than not. I don't mind being one of many doctors visited during your information-gathering journey, even if you ultimately decide to have someone else do your surgery. As long as you feel in your heart that you have made a good decision, I am happy for you. If your plastic surgeon reminds you more of a salesperson than a medical professional, I would advise you to keep looking."
