Francis R Palmer III MD FACS, is an artist in watercolor, oil and acrylic mediums whose style can best be described as photorealism. Dr Palmer considers himself a modern day soft tissue sculptor adding his artistic flair to every aspect of his plastic and cosmetic surgery practice. “Plastic surgery is artistry. In order to be inspired work, plastic surgery procedures and treatments must incorporate both the art and science of beauty. Because we, as plastic surgeons, are mandated to create naturally beautiful results, a plastic surgeon must have an aesthetic eye….training and experience are simply no longer enough. My procedures artistically bring out the key beauty features, thereby giving a more contoured, natural and youthful result”, explains Dr Francis Palmer.

Following that premise, Dr Palmer has pioneered and developed numerous procedures including his Non-Surgical Facelift, Celebrity Facelift, Lip Augmentation and precise delivery techniques for fillers to the face, cheeks, chin and jawline.
