Excellent background, working with children's deformities as well as with adult patients' goals and improving overall confidence. Exudes honesty with years of experience with kind and helpful staff.

One Happy Girl - Birmingham, AL

Every follow-up appointment I've had has been great-quick, thorough, and Dr. Howard always wanted to make sure I was happy with my results. I did talk to a few other surgeons and friends that had plastic surgery before deciding who I wanted to use. After meeting with Dr. Howard and his staff, I was confident, and still am, that he is the best choice for me. He is board certified, he listens and cares, and his results are fabulous. I'm looking forward to my next procedure with Dr. Howard. Thanks a million Dr. Howard - you are truly amazing!

Looking Younger is Not a Sin

Having spent the majority of my life in big cities such as Atlanta, Miami and Paris, I was taken aback by the responses of women in smaller southern cities such as Birmingham, Montgomery or Mobile to the notion of facelifting. I have on occasion related an anecdote about women in the South; if one asks a woman on the street in Miami or Paris “who is your doctor?,” the usual reply will get you the name of her Plastic Surgeon. The same question posed to a woman in Birmingham...
