The path Dr. Edwards followed to establish a successful private plastic surgery practice in Las Vegas included serving in the U.S. Air Force from 1984 to 2003. It was during his military career that he earned his medical degree from F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine in Bethesda, MD, followed by a general surgery residency at David Grant Medical Center in California. He then completed a plastic and reconstructive surgery residency at Wilford Hall Medical Center in Texas. In the Air Force, Dr. Edwards served as chief of surgery, chief of plastic surgery, and chief of staff. Additionally, he served a tour in Kuwait supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Dr. Edwards isn’t the type to sit on the sidelines. Having served in the U.S. Air Force for nearly 20 years, he understands that a single person can make a difference for a patient, for an organization, or for his or her country. Since entering private practice in 2003, he has remained active in both local and national plastic surgery associations, championing research and education with the goal of continually improving results for patients who undergo cosmetic or reconstructive plastic surgery. Dr. Edwards was responsible for patient safety legislation in Nevada called the Truth in Advertising Bill. Dr. Edwards was recently appointed by Gov.

Board-certified anesthesiologists are present during all surgical procedures, which are performed in a fully certified surgical facility.

"Words cannot express how grateful I am to have had Dr. Edwards do my surgery. He is personable, compassionate, kind, informative and patiently answered all my questions. The results of my surgery far exceeded my dreams. And most importantly I was able to take deep breaths again. The entire staff could not have been nicer and so very organized. It was amazing how timely they are with appointments, very respectful. Special thanks to Dr Edwards, Dr Bowman, Que, Gia, Brooke, Mary and Laura. ❤️❤️❤️"
"Dr. Edwards is such an amazing Dr. He did my breast surgery 9 years ago and did a fantastic job! He walked me through the entire procedure and answered all of my questions and concerns. The day of the surgery, I was extremely nervous and had anxiety. I was crying and felt like I wouldn’t wake up after my surgery. He calmed me down by telling me everything was going to be fine, while rubbing my head. He calmed me down instantly because I new I was in great hands. I’ve never experienced a Dr that cares so much about his patients. He is truly the best Dr I have ever came in contact with. He made me feel like I was his first priority and nothing else mattered to him at that time. We need more Dr's like him. He is one of a kind!! Thank you Dr. Edwards for all you do and how important you made me feel!"
