Welcome to the Watson Clinic Plastic Surgery page. We have designed this page to provide our patients a resource for information so they may fully participate in the decisions involved in their treatment. We are proud to offer our patients cosmetic and plastic surgery in Lakeland for both the face and body.

Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve an individual’s appearance and self-esteem. Cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by health insurance because it is elective.

Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body, caused by birth defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. In general, surgery is performed to improve function, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery is generally covered by most health insurance policies, although coverage for specific procedures and levels of insurance coverages vary greatly.

There are a number of plastic surgery procedures that sometimes require special consideration by an insurance carrier. These areas usually involve operations which may be reconstructive or cosmetic, depending on each patient's situation. For example, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) - a procedure normally performed to achieve cosmetic improvement - may be covered if the eyelids are drooping severely and obscuring a patient's vision.

Our plastic surgery department offers the finest plastic and cosmetic surgery services for patients in Lakeland and surrounding areas. Please see the detailed information below on a variety of procedures and services that we offer. Because we provide individualized care and attention to detail, we are able to give you even more specific information after a confidential consultation. Also featured in our office is TouchMD – a unique, interactive experience designed to educate patients in the exam room. TouchMD is a free service that records valuable information and then allows you to privately login while at home and revisit everything discussed with your physician. Patients learn more about their individual diagnosis and can view detailed information on their physician, the office staff and the facility.  You are also able to access additional information about various procedures being considered, view before and after photos, and decide on the procedure that is most appropriate for your situation. We look forward to meeting with you and ask that you contact us with any questions you may have.

Plastic Surgeons“Modern advances in the field of plastic surgery have given patients a host of safe and effective options, whether they want to correct a physical deformity or enhance their appearance,” says Dr. Ferguson. “Some procedures that have only been performed under general anesthesia in the operating room can now be performed in the office using local anesthesia. This option provides the patient the opportunity to observe their potential outcome while modifications can still be made. Another benefit of an office procedure is lower cost, making plastic surgery affordable to more people.”

Plastic Surgeon“As a result of 10 years of dedicated training focused in only plastic surgery, I am continuously fine tuning my interpretation of aesthetic ideals for the body from head to toe,” Dr. Kazmier says. “Through my understanding of a patient’s desired goals and utilization of advanced plastic surgery techniques, I can mold the body in a manner that restores a normal, natural appearance and improves upon the patient’s self-esteem.” Dr. Kazmier says this is true of both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures.
 
“My main goal is to achieve a natural looking result by creating a more youthful appearance to the face and body," Dr. Kazmier continues. “These procedures may involve less invasive injectables or in-office laser treatments, or more extensive surgical treatments. There are many new options available and my goal is to recommend the best technique for each individual.”
 
Dr. Kazmier counsels male and female patients on a wide range of procedures. In addition to offering immediate and delayed breast reconstruction, she offers cosmetic breast procedures as well, including breast augmentations, lifts, and reductions (for men and women). She also performs face and hand rejuvenation with minimally invasive techniques, tummy tucks, liposculpture, Brazilian buttock lift, spider vein laser therapy, scar revision, body contouring, and reconstructions following skin cancer removal.
 
Dr. Kazmier works in harmony with Watson Clinic breast cancer surgeons when the severity of a cancer removal procedure demands immediate reconstruction to the breast. She lends her expertise right then – during the original breast cancer surgery. With immediate breast reconstruction surgery, follow-up reconstruction procedures can be significantly minimized, in addition to aiding in psychological adjustment after the breast cancer surgery. Rather than prolonging the recovery process by weeks or months, immediate breast reconstruction means a patient can more quickly get on with living a normal life.
 
Dr. Kazmier performs a full range of cosmetic and reconstructive services, including:
