Procedure(s) I had done:   None


I have had a small series of self-improvement procedures over the past 10 years and I have used various doctors and surgeons in the greater Charleston area. None are as professional and detailed as Dr. Terranova. He runs a small practice, and I do not think he advertises, so patients come by word of mouth. The Doctor is a Harvard grad, certified plastic surgeon, trained other prominent doctors in town, and is a hand specialist as well (I think). There is no need to go to a larger town (Atlanta or Charlotte or Florida or NY) when we have the very best right here in Charleston. He is honest when a procedure is not needed, and refers to others when a procedure is out of his immediate expertise. Although it may sound as though I am a plastic surgery "junkie", I can assure you that I am not. I had lipo done 10 years ago, after many years of consideration, and I was thrilled. I should have acted sooner. Five years later it was time, due to age, for a face lift w/ eye work, and again I was thrilled, and the years in-between I maintained with Botox. I am now considering a chemical peel for acne scars,pigmentation, and facial lines. I have had Botox by at least 3 other Charleston doctors over the past 6 years, and no other doctor did as excellent a treatment. "nuff said. Good luck and check in with Dr. Terranova in North Charleston. I am writing this because I saw a blog that there are not good doctors in Charleston and I strongly disagree!
