You can be confident that you’re in good hands at Taylor Plastic Surgery + Taylor Skin Cancer Center
Dr. Robert Taylor did a fantastic job with my plastic surgeries (breast augmentation and abdominoplasty). He took the extra time to talk with me about goals, results, and outcomes. His knowledge in the field is extensive and I felt super comfortable knowing I would get the best care. P.S. If you do exactly what he recommends for after care – you WILL see results that you want (and even more!!) Fantastic experience – Dr. Taylor was great!
