Meet Dr. Garlick

Dr. Garlick enjoys working with each patient to create an individualized treatment plan for their unique concerns and working together to make those goals a reality.

He is a strong advocate for patient education and safety, frequently authoring publications about modern plastic surgery techniques and the latest advancements in the field. Dr. Garlick also utilizes many techniques to further improve and refine plastic surgery results, including his three-dimensional silhouette approach to tummy tuck surgery with customized belly button creation, and his use of “internal bra” techniques and fat transfer during breast surgery.

Dr. Garlick continues to maintain active involvement in his plastic surgery society organizations, whether through presenting research, editing journal articles, or attending educational conferences. When he’s not at his practice, Dr. Garlick enjoys golfing, playing tennis, boating, and trail running.
