From facelifts to tummy tucks, Port City Plastic Surgery has been improving the confidence and appearance of Lowcountry residents for 20 years.
A full service plastic surgery practice, Port City offers body contouring, breast surgery, facial rejuvenation, and the popular Mommy Makeover. It also has a medical spa with a variety of skin and body treatments, such as Hydrafacials, Coolsculpting, fillers and injections.
For almost 15 years, Dr. Brian Widenhouse, M.D., has run a second office on Daniel Island. “My wife and I raised our family on Daniel Island, and our children attended school on Daniel Island. Lexi, 20, attended the Daniel Island Academy, or ‘Dandelion Academy’ as she referred to it, during the first year it opened. Our son, Cristian, 24, transferred to the Daniel Island School in its inaugural year. Both are graduates of Bishop England High School. So, an office on Daniel Island was an obvious choice,” said Widenhouse.
During the COVID-19 crisis, extra precautions and adjustments were made for added safety. “We have secured personal protection equipment (PPE) and are limiting the number of patients in the office at any given time. We are offering consultations by telephone and corresponding with patients via telephone, text and email,” explained Widenhouse.
Despite the coronavirus climate, Port City’s safety measures helped alleviate client fears. Port City patient Alex* returned for a second procedure last month. “I wasn’t worried at all with the current COVID situation. Port City is certainly the most sterile environment I’ve been in. I’m a few weeks post-op and have not had any symptoms or any issues, pertaining to COVID-19. Dr. Widenhouse is a top-notch surgeon. He only strives for perfection and truly cares about how happy you are with whatever procedure you get done.”
Port City prides itself on personalized attention and word of mouth referrals.
“Our patients continue to refer their friends and family to us, which has caused Port City to grow tremendously over the years. We are very proud of that and appreciate our patients for thinking of us,” said Widenhouse.
Port City’s reputation for excellence often brings in patients from out of state to receive care.
Amy* has been a patient for four years and drives from North Carolina to see Widenhouse. “Dr. Widenhouse and his staff are amazing; they take time with you and make you feel completely comfortable with any procedure or consultation you may have …. They listen to what it is you want and of course make suggestions if needed, but they do not push other services on you.”
Another patient, Rebecca*, immediately clicked with Dr Widenhouse. “First off, he knows exactly what you are saying; the consultation was to-the-moon friendly,” she said.
