About Michael Law, MD

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.

Asked 2014-09-02

My surgeon excavated too much fat from my lower lids and I now have hollow pockets that need to be filled. Is fat transfer best or should I pursue injectables?

I'm sorry you have had this experience. I regularly perform structural fat grafting on people who have had an overly aggressive blepharoplasty. Fat grafting requires specialized tools, in additional to extensive training, expertise and patience on the part of the plastic surgeon. Be sure to find a plastic surgeon experienced with fat grafting and blepharoplasty correction. The first step should be viewing many, many fat grafting before and after photos.

Fat Grafting is a procdure that can provide beautiful, natural and permanent results. It is a procedure that requires significant experience, expertise and patience on the part of a surgeon, and specialized tools for the best result. Start by looking at many, many before and after images. Be sure you can see images of patients just weeks after surgery and as long as a year after surgery. I do not recommend ANY other material for the under eye area. Many physicians make this suggestion, so be certain to view dozens of before and after images before making this decision.

There is excessive hair growth on every part of my body. I'm also fat because of my hormonal problem. I heard that laser treatments are very painful. I don't know what to do. I live in Pakistan. Please recommend something so I could remove my body hair permanently.

Laser hair removal can remove unwanted hair from any area of the face or body. Be sure to find the right laser for your skin type.

I am having a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a breast lift all at the same time. My doctor is sending me home the same day is this normal?

I would not send a patient home after multiple procedures. I screen patients carefully to be sure they are in good health prior to elective surgery. However, I am more comfortable and I think patients are more comfortable, if they stay in a medical facility with overnight medical observation the first night after surgery.

Consultation Price
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.
