"My experience at "Plastic Surgery Vegas" practice has been amazing.Everyone I came in contact with was very welcoming and professional. I can not speak highly enough of Dr. Higgins and his close staff (Laura & Kristin). This was to be my 4th breast augmentation in 25years (my 1st with Dr. Higgins), which included reconstruction/lift due to wanting to go smaller with this surgery. After my initial consultation with Dr. Higgins, I felt very comfortable and confident to proceed, but as a nurse, I had a few more questions. His reception had no problem scheduling an additional appointment to address any additional concerns. In my career as a nurse, I have met and worked with many physicians over the years. I have come across very few surgeons as authentic, caring, skilled and talented as Dr. Higgins. I felt that Dr. Higgins really listened to me, and addressed my questions and concerns. As most people are,,,, I was nervous about the surgery but felt very taken care of by Dr. Higgins and his staff all the way into to O.R. and just prior to being put to sleep. In all of my previous surgeries, I had never been met with such attention and compassion up to and beyond my surgery. Additionally, my results are PHENOMENAL, and have far exceeded my expectations. I would trust & recommend Dr. Higgins, as well as "Plastic Surgery Vegas" not only to complete strangers, but to anyone I love and care about. Las Vegas is a city that attracts lots of Plastic surgeons, which can make choosing a quality Plastic surgeon VERY difficult. I took my time, I did my research, and am extremely happy I did. If you expect quality care and results, Dr. Higgins, and Plastic Surgery Vegas will far exceed your expectations."
"Dr Higgins is not only a gifted surgeon, but he is extremely professional and has impeccable bedside manner. I would definitely recommend Dr Higgins"
"I recently had surgery with Dr. Higgins. The level of care and compassion I received from him and his staff was amazing. His work is flawless and I am so happy with my results! If I could give more than 5 stars I would."
"Dr. Higgins is an amazing surgeon. He corrected an issue involving my eye shape that other plastic surgeons were reluctant to even try to correct. I am so grateful that I found him. I read all his 5 star reviews. They are truly deserved by Dr. Higgins."
"I have had upper arm reduction a facelift, and my protruding ears flattened with Dr Higgins and he is the best!!! He is not only an extremely competent surgeon providing outstanding results but he is a kind and caring doctor. With the upper arm reduction, I can now where sundresses and sleeveless tops with confidence something that I hadn’t done in 5 years. The facelift really gave me a youthful appearance and finally the ear flattening procedure was awesome! Kids used to call me Dumbo and now I can wear my hair in a ponytail for the first time in my life. Not only is Dr. Higgins fantastic but his entire staff is helpful, caring and supportive! I can’t say enough good!"
