Singing the Song "You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman!" - Atlanta, GA

My entire experience was tailored and individualized just for me. Dr. Lawrence is the essence of "a surgeon's hand with a woman's touch."

A Natural-looking Facelift - Atlanta, GA

Dr. Lawrence knew my expectations to have a very natural appearance. She spent needed time in assuring me of my outcome and her staff was just as competent and professional. I would not hesitate to have Dr. Lawrence perform further procedures on me in the future! Extremely happy!

Breast Lift - Atlanta, GA

Dr. Lawrence went over and above to make me feel comfortable with answering all questions I had before and after the surgery. The surgery went very well and I am very pleased with everything. The Dr.'s staff was very helpful with my after care questions when ever I called and forwarded everything to the Dr immediately. My concerns were answered very rapidly by the Dr herself. Everything from the beginning to the end was handled professionally.

50 Yrs Old, Wanted to Look out of a Bra the Way I Look in One, and Fix my Sagging Eyelids - Atlanta, GA

Completely professional and caring. She and her staff took all the time I needed to make informed decisions. Very attentive after surgery as well.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

best team for anything aesthetic or reconstructive!!! - Atlanta, GA

Dr Lawrence and her team have given me the best experiences for injectables, laser treatments (IPL, hair removal) and chemical peels. When the day comes to have plastic surgery (I am still in the preventative phase!), I will have Dr. Lawrence do the procedures. Dr. Lawrence is double board certified in general and plastic surgery and donates her experience and time to do mission work around...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

23 Years Old, Flat As a Board. Atlanta, GA

I went to Dr. Marisa Lawrence because I always felt my body was misproportioned. I did not lack in the rear but up top I still had the proportions of a pre-pubescent child. She did an amazing job. She helped me decide on the perfect size for my shape and figure. Having started graduate school a few months after the procedure, I became even happier with the job she had done because no one could...

Saggy to Tight, in Just a Few Hours. Atlanta, GA

Dr. Lawrence was the epitome of professionalism and friendliness. Her and her entire staff worked with me on every aspect. She listened to what I wanted instead of telling me what I needed and just gave her opinions on the different types of procedures and which would work best with me and my skin as well as recovery time from each. Thank you Marisa, you made me not only look 20 years younger, but it also made me feel younger in the end too.

"Feeling Good Again with a Much-Needed Breasts Implants and Lift" - Atlanta, GA

Dr. Lawrence is an excellent surgeon and took the time with me to answer all my questions. I never felt rushed and most importantly, she listened to my concerns. We had many conversations over the surgery and reviewed every step of the way and what to expect. After the surgery, Dr. Lawrence was the first person I saw in the recovery room and reinforced that the surgery went well. The office staff are very knowledgeable and make you feel comfortable just being there.

A New Me - Atlanta, GA

I had both Breast Augmentation and Upper Bleph surgery done by. I am extremely happy with the outcome of my surgery and I refer all my friends to her. Many have already had their procedures with her. The office is warm and friendly, very accommodating to my schedule. I would highly recommend Dr. Lawrence to anyone interested in having cosmetic surgery done. I also like that injectables as...

The Smart Woman's Guide to Liposuction

Liposuction, also called lipoplasty or suction-lipectomy, is the surgical removal of localized or regional fat deposits from designated areas of the body. The goal of liposuction is to create a more proportional and sculpted body by permanently removing fat cells. It is not a method of weight loss or a substitute for proper diet and exercise. The most frequently treated areas in men are the “love handles,” breasts, abdomen, and neck. In women they include the thighs, hips, buttocks,...
