Plastic Surgery Procedures

Dr. Merrell and the team at Plastic Surgery Associates of Tidewater are committed to providing a range of plastic surgery procedures and treatments designed so you can enjoy life and feel great about yourself, inside and out. Below are our most requested procedures, but please note, we provide other services as well, such as Ear Tucks, Skin Cancer Screening and Treatment, Micro Surgery, Reconstructive Surgery and more.

We believe a great plastic surgery experience starts with a consultation, rather than a menu of choices, so we invite you to schedule a free initial consultation with Dr. Merrell, where you can discuss your goals, and discover the best options for you.

The procedures listed below and elsewhere on the site represent the most popular plastic surgery requests, however Dr. Merrell performs many other procedures, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for, please give us a call at 757-673-6000, or contact us online.
