5 out of 5 stars Belotero
My old doctor was 3hrs. away after I moved, but I still would make the drive to see her as it is hard to trust just anyone with your face... As it turned out I had 20 units of Botox injected into my forehead, and another 15 between my eyes. I believe it was just too much for me. I am not a regular user, and only did it cause I had a few spacial occasions coming up. Well a few days after I got...

2 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
Made an appointment for meeting the dr to discuss having a procedure. I waited, waited a nurse came in and said it wouldn't be long and to distract me with idle chit chat. After 45 minutes I walked out and told the receptionist this was unacceptable for a first meeting and impression.

Dr. Barbara Persons is intelligent, intuitive, and a perfectly trained M.D., Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon. She has a "second sense" ability to know just what her patients need. My experience with Dr. Persons has been nothing short of fantastic. She is caring and talented, and a perfectionist, all while assuring her patients and making us feel comfortable. Dr. Persons can take care of...
5 out of 5 stars Age Spots Treatment
I went to Dr. Persons for Age Spot Treatment. Her office is very professional and all procedures are explained throughly. I have been very pleased with my results. Her line of products help maintain my skins appearance and tone.
5 out of 5 stars Facelift
Dr. Barbara Persons satisfied me beyond my expectations. She is meticulous, and dedicated to the art of beauty she did things that I never expected or thought possible. I have so much confidence now and feel so much younger. Her staff is superb, they are warm answer every question and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable at every stage of the procedure. At my post op visit I had a laser facial to reduce redness and scarring, and a hyro facial at no charge! I would recommend Dr. Persons to anyone who wants the best surgeon who truly cares about her patients.

Cannot recommend her highly enough. She actually listens to what her patients have to say!
I’m 29 and a mom of two great boys. My husband is very supportive of anything that makes me feel happy and beautiful. After our second child I had a hard time shedding the baby weight. At over 200 pounds in January 2015, I decided to kick it into gear and work on getting healthy. While I’m still a bit from by goal weight I’ve lost over 30 pounds this year. As with a lot of the ladie...

A friend had just finished a high level business meeting with two women. He said, “What is it about 40-year-old women who have been overdone?” Hewas talking about people that have gone overboard on injectable treatments such as fillers and Botox. My initial thought... he doesn’t realize that these women are not forty-something. They do look younger than their 50 years, but they look overdone. This is indeed a problem, and it’s becoming a more common problem that I am being asked to fix ...
As women, we have a relationship with our breasts throughout our lives. Size, sensation, position, breast feeding and even breast cancer affect this relationship. One in seven seven women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. It effects how we feel about our breasts. They are an integral part of our femininity and our sexuality. While breast implants are quite safe and very lovely when performed well, they are medical devices. They must be monitored and changed out...

Is it normal to have slight pain in the tip of the earlobe 4.5 weeks after a short scar face lift? It occurs only on one side.
