Background & Certification
American Board of Plastic Surgery
Certification by an ABMS Member Board has long been considered the gold standard in physician credentialing and has prompted both the medical community and patients to now inquire, with greater frequency, whether or not a physician is board certified. Board certification through the ABMS, demonstrates a physician’s exceptional expertise in a particular specialty and/or subspecialty of medical practice. Be sure to check the credentials of any surgeon you are considering, and make sure that he or she is board-certified in plastic surgery. We believe the most informed patient is the best patient. Your health is most important, ask questions and do your research when selecting the right doctor and practice for you.
From an early age, Dr. Young wanted to be a physician. He chose plastic surgery because it incorporated creativity with science. He finds his work rewarding because for more than two decades he has witnessed his patients’ change not only physically but also through an increased self-confidence.
In addition to his private practice, Dr. Young is an Associate Professor at the Medical University of South Carolina. He has been on active staff since 1987.

All of our skin care treatments are designed to give visible results. They will effectively help to reduce the depth of surface lines, smooth rough skin texture, help fade brown spots and assist in clearing acne and blemished skin. The naturally occurring AHAs (fruit acids) and beta hydroxy acids in the treatments will loosen the dead cells from the skin's surface. This allows the healthier skin cells to come through, giving a smoother texture to your skin and a glowing, radiant appearance. The collagen infused mask and ultrasound treatments help to replenish and stimulate collagen production. Microdermabrasion uses fine crystals to remove the outer layer of skin cells. A series of microderm treatments can result in improving skin texture, diminishing fine lines and dark spots on the skin. There is minimal or no downtime involved in the following medical skin care treatments.
After a consultation and detailed skin history with our registered nurse, one or more of the following treatments may be recommended to obtain your desired result.
