I use to get fillers having my last filler of juvaderm October 2015. Fillers can get expensive and I bruised from the filler so that wasn't the greatest for like ten days later I had a bruise on my face.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

37 Years Old, 2 Kids, One Natural and One C-section. Desired to Have a Smooth Tummy!

I've wanted a tummy tuck since the birth of my first child. I was 22 years and married with a wrinkled stomach. My self esteem suffered from it and may have caused a little tension in my marriage. My husband was happy with the lady that birth his two child, but I constantly reminded him of how I looked. Fifteen years later, after doing for everyone else, I decided to do for me!!! My husband...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Simmons for Surgeon of the Year! - Columbia, SC

After having a tummy tuck last year, I felt that I still needed a little "lift" to my abdominal area. I consulted with Dr. Simmons, of Columbia, SC and was highly pleased with the result. I've always had "problem areas" regardless of expertise or diet and Simmons helped me to eliminate these. I'd say that the goals I have for my body are almost complete. Liposuction in itself is not a bad...

20 Years Old, Much Needed Facial Surgery Due to Pre-existing Condition - Baltimore, MD

The outcome was amazing. I am extremely happy with the results. I had a cheek implant, brow lift, and rhinoplasty. Due to pre-existing conditions from childhood from multiple brain surgergies and facial reconstruction surgery. Dr. Simmons was able to literally lift my self-esteem back giving me a perfectly symmetrical face. I did not have any problems post-op and it has been 6 years since surgery.

Lipo of Abdomen - Columbia, SC

I had liposuction if my abdomen and flanks. Dr. Oliver did an amazing job! I noticed improvement even the first day after surgery. Dr. Oliver is very kind and professional.

Surgisil Permalip Implants for 23 Year Old - Columbia, SC

I went to my consultation with Dr. Simmons last week. He was very kind and nice. I decided to go with this procedure based off of his last Permalip patient's results. I can't decide if I want to go with 4mm on my top lip and 5mm on my bottom lip or 5mm on both. My payment is due a week before surgery. It's $2k...but the patient before me paid $1,800? So I will have to talk to the office about...

I went to my consultation last week and my procedure date is 10/28/15 at 12pm. Dr. Simmons answered all of my questions and I felt I could trust him with my procedure. I will most likely be going with 5mm upper and lower. Dr Oliver Simmons is the only doctor trained with Surgisil for the permalip procedure in the state of South Carolina. The front office is prompt and the scheduling is very...

5 out of 5 stars Mini Tummy Tuck

After having 2 babies in two years the skin on my stomach did not want to go back to normal. I was back in shape but could do nothing about the crepey skin!

I saw the results almost immediately...
