Dr. Law's mission in performing aesthetic cosmetic surgery of the face and body is to provide natural-appearing results for all of his Raleigh plastic surgery patients, and to do so in an environment that affords his patients the greatest degree of safety and comfort possible. To that end he performs all major aesthetic cosmetic surgeries in a hospital operating room, and provides patients with a complimentary overnight hospital stay.
His Raleigh / Durham plastic surgery patients benefit from the combination of his extraordinary training, his ability to communicate about and understand each cosmetic surgery patient's treatment goals, and his talent for producing natural-appearing aesthetic enhancements. Dr. Law's philosophy is that great cosmetic surgery does not look like surgery; it just makes people look great.
As a leading Raleigh plastic surgeon, Dr. Law also believes that cosmetic surgery is not necessarily the ideal 'solution' for every patient's concerns, and for that reason he has designed a fully-integrated aesthetic cosmetic surgery office and medical spa. Blue Water Spa offers a full spectrum of medical aesthetic technology that can provide both surgical and non-surgical patients with significant aesthetic enhancements, with minimal or no 'down time'.
This fully-integrated cosmetic surgery practice and medical spa provides aesthetic enhancements for patients at any stage in the aging process, and for patients with both modest and dramatic treatment goals. Dr. Law takes pride in offering only those products, services and procedures which are safe, effective and scientifically sound.
Dr. Michael Law is a board-certified plastic surgeon. He grew up in Raleigh where his father, Reverend Thomas Law, served as pastor of St. Paul's Christian Church for 30 years. Dr. Law attended Broughton High School. He then attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree with honors and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. He received his M.D. degree at Emory University, where he graduated magna cum laude, second in his class of over 100 graduating physicians.
Dr. Law then traveled west to California. He elected to pursue a rigorous ten year training program that includes general surgery residency at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), plastic surgery residency at the University of Southern California (USC), and a plastic surgery fellowship at USC. His ten years of formal training following medical school amount to twice that of some plastic surgeons.
Dr. Law is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. He has authored and co-authored publications appearing in peer-reviewed journals and surgical textbooks, and he has made presentations at regional and national meetings throughout the United States. Since 2004 his North Carolina practice and medical spa have twice been featured on the cover of Plastic Surgery News, the official news journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Upon completing his surgical training, he remained in California where he had a successful aesthetic plastic surgery practice in Beverly Hills. North Carolina always seemed like home, however, and in 2002 he made the decision to leave California and bring his exceptional training and talents to his hometown of Raleigh. He still sees patients from California and all parts of the country who seek natural results from plastic surgery. Dr. Law resides in Raleigh with his wife Kile and their two young sons, Luke and Lang.
Dr. Law has been recognized in many "best of" polls since opening his Raleigh, North Carolina plastic surgery practice. His practice has been featured in national magazines, newscasts and television programs.
Dr. Law performs plastic surgery in a hospital O.R. and provides a complimentary overnight hospital stay with medical observation to enhance patient comfort and to provide peace of mind to patients and their families.
