Reviews

"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 the BEST all around!! I have had several procedures with him, over the last 6yrs. He's the first plastic surgeon I have full trust in and I've dealt with a few different surgeons in the past. I am probably one of his most difficult patients (in my opinion), my body doesn't always like to co-operate with surgery. Dr. Higgins is highly skilled, patient, detailed, kind, he always has a smile on his face and the list goes on. He listens, answers questions and give his honest opinion/feedback. He guides his patients, from consultation to years post op. Laura, his assistant, is fantastic too. She is also always smiling, helpful, answers questions and more. I can't say enough good things about them. I always refer Dr. Higgins to family and friends, when someone is contemplating surgery, and I will be a lifelong patient."
