"Dr. Michael Edwards is a life changer to so many of his clients.  I've seen the positive effects his quality work has had on many of his patients. I had been looking for a great Plastic Surgeon for my best friend, and after narrowing it down to 3, I compiled an extensive comparison chart to compare the 3 side by side.  The criteria I used, resulted in a clear choice.  Office visits and Dr. interviews were conducted with all three by my best friend and future patient to verify what my research had indicated. In my personal involvement in the research, attending the office visits, day of surgery events, and post surgical care provided by Dr. Edwards and his staff proved to me that his 5 star rating is well deserved!  If you are contemplating Plastic Surgery from a Board Certified Surgeon, I highly recommend Dr. Michael Edwards from ANSON, EDWARDS, HIGGINS Plastic Surgery Associates in Las Vegas."



"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"



"I have had a wonderful experience with Dr. Edwards and his staff. Especially his nurses Jacqueline and Cathy. They are absolutely amazing and always readily available for questions I may have. My results have been phenomenal and very much the envy of friends who had the same procedure with other plastic surgery groups. My results look better after 6 months than theirs after 2 years. Anson, Edwards and Higgins were strongly recommended to me by another doctor. If another doctor is recommending a practice, you know it is a great group. The nurses at the surgery center were attentive and caring both before and after my procedure. I cannot imagine a better team. I strongly recommend that anyone considering plastic surgery meet with this fabulous group."



"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!"



"Love love love Dr. Edwards!!! He did a great job on my breast aug and lift! I would recommend anyone To go to him! Not only does he have many prestigious awards but was named best in Vegas countless times. Do the research. He has also moved with a great team at anson and Higgins who did my moms facelife and did an amazing job! I will return for a tummy tuck ;)"
