WHAT COSMETIC SURGERY PROCEDURE DO YOU OFFER?
The Procedures we offer include:
EYELID LIFT BLEPHAROPLASTY: An Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) cosmetic surgery can refresh your appearance by reducing under-eye bags, lifting sagging lids, and sculpting your eye contours.
FACELIFT – NECK LIFT: We use Facelifts (Rhytidectomies) to remove sagging skin, minimize wrinkles, and tighten facial and neck muscles to restore a younger, more vigorous look.
BUCCAL FAT REMOVAL: Buccal Fat is the excess fat in the cheeks that is located between facial muscles. Buccal Fat removal procedures are often paired with facelifts.
BROW LIFT – FOREHEAD LIFT: A Brow Lift, also known as a Forehead Lift, is the best procedure available for eliminating the tired, serious, or angry appearance that comes from having low eyebrows and frown lines between your eyes.
NECK LIPOSUCTION – CHIN LIPOSUCTION: If you’re bothered by a double chin, saggy neck, or a droopy jawline, Chin Liposuction and Neck Liposuction can dramatically improve your appearance by giving you tighter, slimmer, and more athletic facial features.
CHIN AUGMENTATION: “Genioplasty” is the medical term for Chin Augmentation surgery that alters the shape and size of a chin and improves contours of the chin, neck, and jawline.
MOLE REMOVAL: Moles are skin growths that range in color and size, and when they are located on your face, they are often unwanted. Thanks to advancements in modern medicine, we can easily and painlessly remove moles.

The office staff is super accommodating and helpful, and Dr. Tuggle and Tonya Tuggle are both wonderful at what they do. I have had multiple procedures/treatments here over the years and highly recommend them. I never feel uncomfortable or judged, which is huge when deciding on cosmetic procedures. I also never felt pressured into anything and always felt informed about all of my decisions. They have great seasonal specials on fillers, etc!

I recently relocated from CA. I was nervous to find a new place for lip fillers after going to the same person for several years. Tonya was absolutely amazing! She is extremely knowledgeable and instantly made me feel comfortable. Tonya exceeded my expectations. I’ve received so many compliments from friends and family. The entire staff were friendly and professional. I will definitely become a loyal client. Thank you Tonya and team!!!

Tonya is amazing!! She made me feel so comfortable and really listened to my concerns about my skin. She really cares and knows what she is doing. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!! I was concerned my first appointment but I just had my third and I can say it’s so worth it!!! Botox has been an incredible experience and I’m so happy to have tried it, I’m so much happier with my appearance and it looks incredibly natural. I’ve included before and after photos, neither photo is filtered or edited, you can see how makeup would collect in my forehead, and how the after it’s smooth and looks so lovely. It doesn’t feel weird or like I can’t move my muscles at all, it feels super natural. One of my biggest concerns was that I wouldn’t be able to emote with Botox but that’s just not true at all. I feel so confident and that is thanks to Tonya!
