5 out of 5 stars Botox
I went in to see Dr. S for Botox in my forehead. At first I was nervous, but after he explained the procedure to me and told me what the expected oucome would be I felt much more confident. I have undergone Botox twice now, both times with Dr. S and I love it! The experience was great and he is a wonderful physician. I would recommend him to anyone!

My Botox Injections Never Hurt. I Did Feel the Needle and the Entire Experience Was Very Relaxing - Richmond, VA
Dr. S is a gentle and caring doctor with a wonderful ability to explain things in a calm and compassionate way.
5 out of 5 stars Juvederm
I went to Dr. Shaw for Juvederm. All I can say is wow! So many things went right (that has not been the case before).1. I got an appointment when I needed/wanted 2. He spent enough time to understand my desired outcome. 3 His technique was incredible! No bruising, very little swelling - beautiful results. 4. His office staff were extremely personal able. I trust him- I've been searching for the right person and I have found that w/Dr. Shaw.
5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery
I would highly recommend Dr. Shaw to every-one that I know. Not only is he proficient in his ability and knowledge but his interaction with his patients is exceptional. Dr. Shaw has the ability to make you feel that everything will be ok and he has such a calming and gentle manner that you feel as if you are the only patient that he has. Other doctors could learn from Dr Shaw that the bedside manner is as equally important to the patient as the knowledge. Thank You, Linda Lisk

4 out of 5 stars Juvederm
My Rating is 4 Star. This is my first doctor and So far I feel he was very good, however there is still scope of improvement and I can get a more attractive fullness to my face, that will compliment my facial features (without roundness). I would like to get that look in next time.
5 out of 5 stars Laser Resurfacing
I cannot recommend Dr. Shaw enough or his staff! I've seen him 3 times for laser work and today received my first ever injections of Dysport & Botox by him. He is kind, professional, and really knows his stuff. I'd send my family to him and my best friends.
5 out of 5 stars Injectable Fillers
Dr. Shaw was recommended to me by a friend who works extensively with numerous plastic surgery offices. I went to his practice in November after switching from another provider in the area, looking for someone for injections as well as a skilled surgeon for septoplasty to correct an old injury. As an ENT as well as a Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Shaw has that unique combination of skills, so I was...
5 out of 5 stars PicoSure
Dr. Shaw is an OUTSTANDING provider. He is knowledgeable, honest, kind, and exceedingly generous with his time. Every time I see him, I always have new questions for him and he never fails to take the time to both listen to my concerns and throughly answer all of my inquires. He is honest about the results that can be achieved, he wants his patients to be as happy with their results as possible, and there is never any pressure to make decisions too quickly. I can tell that Dr Shaw really enjoys his practice and it truly shows in the work that he does. His entire staff is also top notch and just as helpful, honest, and kind as he is!
Dr. Shaw was inspired by a trip he took with his father to Kjabe Mission Hospital in Kenya. During this trip, he witnessed many patients who had facial deformities. He brings this inspiration to his patients by delivering compassionate, expert care to his Richmond area patients.
Free. 1 hour, relaxing and no-pressure

It was a big night at the Staples Center in the cosmetic surgery center of the universe, otherwise known as Los Angeles. I was excited that The Black Keys and Mumford and Sons walked away with a lion’s share of awards; they were well deserved. If you have not checked out these bands, they are worth a listen. In true LA style, celebrities were out in full force. OK, maybe half force after CBS issued strict wardrobe guidelines for this year. It is always fun to watch the awards...
