Cancer sucks but the physicians make it bareable.

Dr Higdon is a very caring person. Dr Higdon did my Breast Recontruction. I feel very comfortable in asking any question regarding my procedure and will get a truthful answer whether it's what I what to hear. He is concerned for my well being. Thankful I have a physician who wants to completely satisfy me in all areas of my recovery from breast cancer.

Amazing results; natural looking and refreshing

I found Dr Higdon to be very attentive to all my questions He took his time to explain everything so I felt very comfortable with all procedure. The results were even better than what I had hoped for. My blepharoplasty, laser resurfacing, Botox , and fillers were all awesome; so natural looking and youthful.

Search no farther this the physician you want

Dr Higdon and all of his staff make you feel like you are his only patient. They listen to your concerns and give you excellent results. My surgery was performed by two physicians and took 3 1/2 hours. I had special circumstances for my anisthesia, they took special precautions while I was out. You are in good hands with Dr. Higdon and all of his staff. Bless you Dr. Higdon

Bilateral Mastectomy with Reconstruction

Dr. Higdon is an amazing doctor and a very honest and caring person. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2015 and I required Chemotherapy, a Bilateral Mastectomy, Radiation, and Reconstruction. I met Dr. Higdon during my consultation period. We disgusted in length what my options would be and what would be my best options. Dr. Higdon has excellent bedside manner, very personable, and caring. He understands that reconstruction after a mastectomy is not just a "boob job" and that during and after cancer treatment the way the patient views themselves is different. Dr. Higdon performed immediate reconstruction with my mastectomy. He inserted Tissue Expanders which would need to be filled weekly for about 6 weeks. After I achieved the fullness that I was satisfied with I started Radiation. Radiation changes the way your skin grows, stretches, feels, and looks. Dr. Higdon is very understanding of this. He again discusses in length about options and things that I can do to help my left breast. Once completed with Radiation and my healing period, Dr. Higdon performed Reconstruction with Fat Grafting from my upper stomach and Silicon Implants. I am satisfied with my end result. Due to radiation my left breast is still healing and will take time to change. Dr. Higdon is an amazing Doctor and Person. I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Higdon was fantastic! - Nashville

Absolutely amazing experience. Dr Higdon's bedside manner, expertise, attention to detail, and his openness to "dumb" questions contributed to a great experience after such a painful and traumatic experience with my double mastectomy. In addition to the experience, his work was fantastic...he preserved my nipples, he ensured no infection (his forte'), and listened to all my requests. I was...

Great plastic surgeon

Dr. Higdon is excellent. He has amazing surgical skills but is also warm and caring. He was able to put me at ease in the context of a very stressful diagnosis. He is highly respected by his peers and the staff that work with him. I absolutely recommend him!
