How long have you been in practice?
I returned to Fort Smith – my hometown – twenty years ago to start the Department of Plastic Surgery at Cooper Clinic.
What services are offered at Passmore Plastic Surgery?
Our services are truly too numerous to list, but you can learn more at passmoreplasticsurgery.com. Cosmetic procedures range from surgery for eyes, face, breast, and tummy to non-surgical treatments such as Ultherapy, Vanquish Fat Reduction, and fillers/injectables. Other procedures range from skin cancer removal to the correction of conditions caused by birth defects and accidents.
What are some of the latest advancements in your field?
One exciting, new advancement is the PiQo4 laser which provides faster, more effective tattoo removal. I will be introducing this in my practice very soon.
How should a plastic surgeon be selected?
Surprisingly, any physician in this state, with or without specialized training, can perform plastic surgery. That’s why, to get the best results, it’s important to select someone who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This certification has stringent criteria. It cannot be purchased; it must be earned.
What are the first steps for someone considering plastic surgery?
They should come in for a consultation. Internet research can be helpful, although often misleading. My staff and I have the experience and knowledge to be your best resource.
What are some non-surgical options available for those wanting a more youthful appearance?
It all starts with good skincare basics including the affordable, highly effective TheraDerm products available in my office. To lift and tighten skin, we offer Ultherapy which uses ultrasound energy, as well as fillers/injectables such as Botox® and Juvederm® for the treatment of lines and wrinkles.
What are some of the latest treatments available for spot reduction of fat?
Some office procedures for spot reduction of fat can be disappointing with contour abnormalities; they are simply ineffective. In my office, I utilize the FDA approved Vanquish Fat Reduction System. This latest breakthrough in non-invasive fat removal delivers radio frequency energy into targeted areas of fat with very successful results. Of course, dietary management and exercise are integral.
Are there savings available for cosmetic treatments?
Special discounts on selected surgical and non-surgical therapies and products are posted monthly at passmoreplasticsurgery.com. And in August, in celebration of my 20th anniversary as a plastic surgeon, we are offering a whole slew of wonderful specials.
What are your interests or hobbies outside of your practice?
I am a full-time mom as well as a full-time plastic surgeon. I enjoy an active lifestyle and keeping up with my son. I love my Belgian draft horses and dogs. Working out at the gym, playing the piano, and swimming are other hobbies that give me pleasure.
