"I am writing this article in praise of my Aesthetician, Chris Weber at PVPS. I recently had a small procedure done and was concerned about post surgery care and maintenance of my lid area of my eye which is very delicate. I have been going to Chris at PVPS for several years now and thoroughly have enjoyed her tips and especially the expert and thorough knowledge she expends through years of her attending the most advanced progressive symposia's and certifications in skincare. My skin always looks marvelous when I follow in her advice on skincare and many family and friends have now made PVPS their skincare meca of choice and Chris as their Aesthetician. No matter if I choose to use the skincare that she recommends after she utilizes on a facial for me or to first "test drive" the skincare products I always return to get those products because quite honestly my skin just looks and feels better! Again, I returned to Chris to follow up and heed her suggestions of what would help firm, moisturize and keep my delicate eye area looking tight and smooth. I have been following this regimen and gotten many compliments. I started out after having several different skincare specialists after moving to Jacksonville but have stayed with Chris simply because I love her amazing deep cleansing facial's and how I look and feel afterward. I expected the best at PVPS but certainly surprised that Chris has elevated my experience far beyond my own expectations, she is superior at her craft! Chris is the total package for indulgence, experience and complete relaxation!"- L.W. / Yelp / Nov 17, 2015
"I had my breast done in January with Dr. Hickman and she was amazing! She took her time with any questions during the consult, making sure I was completely informed and comfortable. Her work is amazing, I love the outcome."- B.W. / Google / May 12, 2021
"After putting it off for way too long, I finally bit the bullet and went to Claudette to get tear trough filler and I am so glad I did. I was nervous but I trusted Claudette and boy did she deliver! Apparently my case was one of the more difficult ones she has had because of the amount of fat loss from my face. This impressed me even more given how she absolutely nailed it on the first try. Now I don't have to pointlessly put concealer under my eyes or worry about looking tired when I'm not. My face is brighter and more lifted and it's all because of Claudette's expertise. I've been beaming ever since. I *highly* recommend her if you are considering fillers."- KZ / Office Visit / May 13, 2021
"I cannot say enough things about Dr. Bates and his Nurse!!! From my first visit to surgery and PostOp, the care I received has been top notch. When I had a minor complication Dr Bates was quick to give me a call and answer any questions I had. His bedside manner is what really sets him apart. If you’re thinking about using Dr. Bates just do it!!!! I will use him again for future operations."- A.P. / Google / Apr 23, 2021
"I can't say enough great things about my entire experience at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery! From my initial call to schedule a consultation with Dr. Hickman, to the day after my surgery when I received a phone call checking in with me to see how I was doing ... Dr. Hickman and the entire Staff at PVPS have been nothing short of welcoming, kind, and professional beyond measure. Your compassionate, friendly, exceptional care is a gift, and appreciated immensely!"- T.S. / Office Visit / Oct 19, 2021
During/After the Procedure
SculpSure, laser lipolysis is performed in the plastic surgeon's office and tolerated well without any type anesthesia or numbing. One session will take about 25 minutes to complete. The SculpSure treatment pads will be secured over the problem area by a belt while the laser energy heats the fat cells, the patient will experience waves of cool and then heat on the skin. As the laser energy heats the fat cells, they are broken down and over the course of 12 weeks, the destroyed fat will be processed naturally out of the body. Patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately after their SculpSure session, but strenuous activity should be avoided for at least 48 hours after the procedure.

Will I Have Scars?
Unlike traditional liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, and laser-assisted liposuction, SculpSure requires no incisions in the skin, so patients will not have to worry about scarring after the procedure. The SculpSure hyperthermic laser is tuned to a frequency that affects the fat cells, but not the surrounding tissue or muscle cells.
