A successful outcome involves not only your looks but also your comfort and good health going forward.

Dr. Copeland will begin by talking to you about your goals—why you’re considering a procedure and what kind of options you have, as well as what sort of outcome you should expect. Using state-of-the-art digital imaging, she’ll help you visualize how you might be able to change your looks.The doctor’s knowledge and experience—combined with realistic visual images of the projected result; will help you make an informed choice. If additional discussions would be helpful to you, Dr. Copeland encourages you to have a second consultation, which may include family members or significant others.

Cosmetic surgery is about feeling good about yourself, and the decision to have a cosmetic procedure is as much an emotional one as it is physical. With help from Dr. Copeland and her caring staff, you can be sure you’ll make a decision you’ll feel good about on all levels.

A recognized leader in the plastic surgery field, Dr. Copeland provides a full range of cosmetic enhancement and reconstructive services. From face-lifts and breast surgery to liposuction and tummy tucks, as well as “lunchtime fixes” like Botox®, laser treatments, and filler injections.

Dr. Copeland will help you decide the course of action that is right for you. Dr. Copeland takes a holistic approach to surgery and believes in cosmetic wellness. Cosmetic surgery not only can help fix something that has long bothered you, but it can also be a catalyst for all kinds of other improvements. This philosophy of cosmetic wellness is the driving force behind Dr. Copeland’s approach to plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Many patients looking to rejuvenate their face are surprised to discover that a face-lift is just one option. Facial surgery is now carried out using state-of-the-art techniques that minimize scars and give you the most natural results possible. Procedures can be performed by themselves or in combination with other cosmetic surgery. Which Surgery is right for you?

We women are incredibly aware of the appearance of our breasts—maybe even more than men are. Breasts are sexual and sensual, a big part of what makes us women; and they can dictate our sense of attractiveness and desirability.
Which procedure is right for you?

Today liposuction can be used to recontour the body from head to toe, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, buttocks, breasts, neck, jowls, back, calves, ankles, and knees. New technology that’s gentler and faster than ever before not only allows the removal of large amounts of fat, but also resculpts the body. Which procedure is right for you?

Both women and men are constantly at war with certain parts of their bodies. Dimply thighs, bulging tummies, love handles, and elephant ankles are all issues that can be dealt with effectively. Dr. Copeland offers body recontouring-nthe surgical removal of fat and skin and the molding of muscle–and will help patients determine which procedure or procedures will provide the desired results.

Fees vary according to the type and extent of the surgery, and are paid directly to the anesthesiologist. Certain reconstructive and cosmetic procedures may be covered by insurance.
