Prior to Surgery

We ask that patients to arrive in Dalton several days prior to surgery in order to formally consult with Dr. Williams and undergo necessary testing and examinations and allow Dr. Williams to go over the surgical plan. Our patient coordinators are happy to help out-of-town patients arrange for accommodations, transportation and aftercare.

After Surgery

Our team will ensure that after surgery, the patient is escorted to a comfortable recovery space where he or she is looked after and cared for. Dr. Williams will remove the surgical dressings and sutures within several days after surgery, and clear the patient to return home.

In the rare instance that a patient needs to be seen in their area, Dr. Williams will work with a board-certified plastic surgeon in the area to coordinate your care.

Dr. Williams and his staff are always available to answer your questions or address your concerns. If you live out of the area but are interested in seeking treatment with Dr. Williams, please contact Williams Plastic Surgery.
