We’re proud to announce that our very own Dr. Boggess has been recognized by Nashville Lifestyle Magazine as Nashville’s Top Doctors 2017 for Face Cosmetic Surgery. The magazine, with the help of an independent company, compiled a list of the region’s top medical professionals as “… the doctors that appear in this peer-chosen compilation represent the best that our remarkable medical community has to offer.”
Let’s find out what helps put Dr. Boggess in a league all his own.
How did you initially get into medicine?
“My history started in small-town western Kentucky. I got my introduction to medicine early in life as I used to go make house calls with my father – he was one of those old-school doctors who went to see patients in their homes. So I decided to follow in my father‘s footsteps and I applied for medical school.”
And how did that lead you cosmetic surgery?
“Over the years, you kind of develop what your interests are, and I found that I really liked cosmetic facial plastic surgery. I had an opportunity in Franklin, Tenn. – which is just south of Nashville – to go into a practice where I could just perform facial plastic surgery and it allowed me to gain vast experience in doing cosmetic facial rejuvenation.”
What makes Youthful Reflections different from other cosmetic practices?
“My practice really focuses on the individual – I’m not a high-volume surgical practice. Some physicians may see 20-30 patients in a day and they’re really working at a pace where it’s hard to focus on the individual. My goal when starting Youthful Reflections was to develop an individualized approach to facial rejuvenation so when patients come to see me, it’s not just about having a facelift; it’s about addressing the individual concerns and goals of the patient. So, when I meet with the patient, I’ll sit with them in front of a mirror and ask them to tell me what it is that they would like to see improved, and then I direct my approach to their individual concerns and goals.”
“Doing these procedures in-office with some light sedation and local anesthesia – as opposed to general anesthesia – helps to diminish the cost for the patient because we don’t have to pay facility fees, such as hospital or surgery center fees, and we don’t have to pay for an anesthesia provider. That allows us to keep the costs reasonable for patients and that makes it more affordable for the average person. Avoiding general anesthesia also decreases the risk for the patient. We go above-and-beyond to provide care for our patients before and after the procedure and take the time to help them to know what to expect.”
What do you think distinguishes you from other face cosmetic surgeons?
“My extensive experience in performing facial rejuvenation surgery, and the fact that my practice focuses specifically on cosmetic facial plastic surgery, are the primary things that distinguish me from others. In addition, I always make myself available to my patients – I provide them with my cell phone number and they know that they can call me 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I’m always available to them; there’s no such thing as a ‘stupid question’ and it’s never too late to call. My goal is to just turn back the hands of time for them and give them a very natural-appearing result. So, most people won’t even be able to tell that they’ve had surgery. I found that it’s a very rewarding practice for me.”
With more than 17 years of experience, over 6,000 facial rejuvenation procedures performed, and an untarnished safety record, it comes as no surprise that Dr. Boggess is an expert in facial rejuvenation. He has received countless awards for outstanding patient satisfaction for his calm, caring nature, expert surgical skill, and outstanding service.
