Our Philosophy

We are not here to change our patients. Our determination is simple: To help you become the best you that you can be. Therefore, our practice centers around unlocking the beauty you feel inside for the whole world to see. And where better to do that than with your face?

Inevitably, your face is the first thing that everyone commits to memory and best communicates your thoughts and emotions. And you deserve to show people what you want them to see. However, your face is just one part of an your entire being. To that end, we approach each patient as a whole. We don’t just see a face. We see you and attempt to bring that out in your face.

That is why we bring such attention to detail to all of our work. Since we opened our doors in Gainesville and Braselton, we have done our best to magnify the dynamic aspects of each individual patient. We are not trying to “fix” you.

Cosmetic surgery and/or procedure is about enhancing the eyes and the smile. So, whether you opt for surgery, injection or laser treatments, we do our best to provide you with a confidence. We will help you avoid the frozen, tight or overdone look so common in many cosmetic procedures.

Dr. Paul Garlich – the only board certified, fellowship trained facial plastic surgeon in Gainesville, GA – and his staff want you to understand that the truest definition of face value is the knowledge that your face serves as a window into your healthy self. So, whether you are considering surgical, or any of our non-surgical procedures, please contact us today. We are happy to answer any questions you may have. We are here to help you magnify that inner beauty you feel.
