At his private practice, Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, PA, Dr Dawkins’ goal is to give his patients the beautiful and natural looking results they desire while providing the care and kindness they deserve. “Our desire is to set our facility in North Carolina apart from all the others by exceeding our patients’ expectations,” says Dr Dawkins. “One of my key goals, regardless of the procedure, is to give the most natural appearance possible. I offer my patients the training and experience that they should seek when entrusting themselves to a plastic surgeon”.

Dr Dawkins analyzes the desires and expectations of each of his patients to determine the most appropriate management for each specific situation. Sometimes a patient may not need to surgery to achieve their desired appearance, and may be advised to undertake a non-surgical treatment in the medispa center such as Fraxel®, peels, microdermabrasion and collagen injections to help reduce wrinkles and to freshen skin or the new Zerona™ Non-Invasive Body Slimming procedure for stubborn fat pads.
