About Us

Our Mission

 "As a Plastic Surgeon my primary goal is to produce happy patients with  excellent results. In my effort to become an expert in my field, I have  attended the finest schools and best training programs in our country. I  have limited my practice to areas that I enjoy and at which I excel. I  try to be Christ like in all I do; as a surgeon this means treating  patients as I would want to be treated."  Travis C. Holcombe, M.D., P.C.
