5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Upper Eyelid Time!!

I can't say enough positive about Dr Adams. He is a perfectionist. Listens to any concerns. Answers all my questions. Just brilliant! Also, if he doesn't think I needed or was ready for any procedure he told me. I trust him and his judgement.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Dr Adams is amazing - Memphis, TN

I had breast augmentation with Dr Adams in 2002 and he did a incredible job. From my consult to my surgery, him and his entire team were wonderful. I returned to Dr Adams for a secondary breast augmentation because he is the absolute best. I had new silicon implants placed also moved up a size. Once again he was incredible. He personally called my husband to check on me the night of my...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Finally!!!!!! Breast Reduction and Lipo on the Sides. - Memphis, TN

Dr Adams is a perfectionist and a true artist. He takes his time explaining procedure and what he envisions. I couldn't be any more thrilled with my entire experience. Especially my surgery and outcome. His office staff is great. His personal nurses are sweet, encouraging, and so helpful. The Babtist East Surgery Center that he does all procedures in is fantastic as well. The care from beginning to end was amazing. I would highly recommend Dr. Adams. If your considering this surgery do yourself a favor and go for a consult. You wont regret it:)

54 Years Old with Very Drooping Eyelids, Causing Constant Vision Problems. Memphis, TN

After making the decision to discuss my wishes about having cosmetic eye surgery, I met with Dr. Adams. He made me feel totally at ease. He was very professional and went into all the details as to what the procedure would be. I was confident in him and knew I made the right choice. The day of my surgery Dr. Adams bedside manner put me at ease. His staff was competent and professionally.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Augment Revision with 450cc Cohesive Gels. Memphis, TN

I almost had a revision last yr in 2013. Guess I wasn't ready- I had a number of consults but wasn't comfortable. I also didn't believe that I only needed to exchange implants in order to regain upper pole fullness(see last year's post). I thought I'd need a lift, or a new pocket but the dr I selected (from last yr) told me all I had to do was switch out with bigger cohesive gel implants. I...

Personal Statement
