"Feeling like I have brand new skin!I came in yesterday to get a facial with Julie - had the dermaplaning and I am SO glad I did! We ended up getting tons of dead / dull/ dry skin off my face , then extracting any impurities and really hydrating . Wow! I followed up my facial with some much needed Botox with Dr Higgins- he is truly talented and amazing! Knowledgeable and has a gentle touch so it didn't hurt at all . Bought some of their new FixMD skin care for my " new skin" lol. This stuff is fabulous and I feel that it can now fully penetrate my skin - since it has been exfoliated.HIGHLY RECOMMEND"
"First, I never thought I'd want cosmetic surgery. After medically necessary breast procedures changed mine a bit, I talked to a friend who went to Dr. Higgins. He is thorough during the consultation, surgery and recovery. His demeanor is genuine and warm; his surgical skill set impeccable. My results are more beautiful than I thought possible. He listened 100% about my desired goals. I was given a great contact for questions (Laura), which came in handy post-op. Dr. Higgins called my spouse to check on me after surgery. My primary doctor was thrilled to hear that I chose him (a great sign)! Dr. Terrence Higgins made me feel comfortable, safe and so beautiful. Go see him!"
"I work in the medical field and have contemplated breast augmentation for many years. I finally came to a decision and point in my life where I felt I would do this for myself. My husband came with me to the consultation and I am glad he did as I would have been way too conservative and unhappy with the size. Dr. Higgins knew it, and without saying a word to my husband, my husband said "no, we are going up in size". I am beyond ecstatic with my results! I feel proportionate, sexy and confidant!"
"WOW! The staff and, doctors, and surgeons at Anson, Edwards and Higgins are truly the best in their fields! They go above and beyond to make you feel important and comfortable every time you are there.The results are amazing. I don't know anyone who wouldn't recommend them HIGHLY!"
"Had an absolutely wonderful experience with Dr. Higgins. Always made me feel comfortable and sure. Took great care of me for a long time. Had many friends go through him. Highly recommend this office!"
