About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

Great plastic surgery doesn't look like surgery. It just makes people look great.

Dr. Law is devoted to providing his patients with an aesthetic surgery practice environment that affords the greatest degree of safety and comfort possible, and complete confidentiality. To that end he performs all major cosmetic surgeries in fully accredited surgical facilities and uses only board-certified M.D. anesthesiologists to provide anesthesia care. He also provides patients with complimentary overnight observation at the surgery center with skilled nursing care following major surgical procedures.

His cosmetic plastic surgery patients benefit from the combination of his extraordinary training, his ability to communicate effectively and compassionately, his ability to identify and understand each cosmetic surgery patient's individual treatment goals, and his talent for producing natural-appearing aesthetic enhancements. As a leading North Carolina plastic surgeon, Dr. Law also believes that cosmetic surgery is not necessarily the ideal 'solution' for every patient's concerns, and for that reason he has incorporated a state-of-the-art, award-winning medical spa into his aesthetic surgery practice. Blue Water Spa offers a full spectrum of medical aesthetic technology and services that can provide both surgical and non-surgical patients with significant aesthetic enhancements, with minimal or no 'down time'.

This fully-integrated cosmetic surgery practice and medical spa provides aesthetic enhancements for patients at any stage in the aging process, and for patients with both modest and dramatic treatment goals. Dr. Law takes pride in offering only those products, services and procedures which are safe, effective and scientifically sound.

Your Consultation

We have a two-part consultation process. Your initial consultation is a complimentary appointment with one of our experienced Cosmetic Surgery Patient Coordinators that is 30 to 45 minutes long. Your Patient Coordinator can give you answers to general questions you may have about surgical procedures in this practice. They will also discuss with you your health history, expectations for surgery, and a general price range for the procedure(s) you are interested in. ‘Before and After’ photographs are also available for your review. If it is determined that the aesthetic enhancement in which you are interested can be accomplished in this practice, then a consultation appointment will be scheduled for you with Dr. Law.

Your consultation with Dr. Law is a one-hour appointment. Dr. Law will discuss with you in detail the aesthetic enhancement(s) that you have in mind, examine the area(s) that you wish to improve, and based on the discussion and examination will put together a personalized surgical plan that meets your individual needs. There is a $100 prepaid fee for this consultation. That charge will be applied to surgery, if you elect to proceed.

For out of town patients, a Cosmetic Surgery Consultant will discuss surgery with you by phone to determine if we can provide the surgical treatment in which you are interested. A completed intake form and digital photographs will be evaluated prior to your telephone appointment, and Dr. Law also requires copies of operative reports from any prior cosmetic surgery that has been performed on the body area for which you desire surgical improvement. Following the telephone appointment, a two-part, in-person consultation appointment may be scheduled, consisting of an initial 30-minute meeting with a Surgery Coordinator followed immediately by a one-hour consultation with Dr. Law.
