Women's Health University - “Cosmetic Procedures: Understanding Your Options”

Thursday 11:30 am to 1:00 pm
Fitzpatrick Hall at The Jefferson Center, 541 Luck Avenue, Roanoke, VA 24016

When considering a cosmetic procedure, choose wisely. Knowing your surgeon’s qualifications and training is just as important as understanding the procedure itself and the outcome you want. There are numerous options available to help you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside. What’s the right one for you?

From brow lifts to liposuction, join us to learn about the many surgical and non-surgical procedures Carilion offers to help you love the way you look.

About our speaker:
Kurtis E. Moyer, M.D. is the chief of plastic and reconstructive surgery at Carilion Clinic. He received his medical degree from Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, where he also completed his residency, followed by a fellowship in plastic surgery at Duke University Medical Center.

Pay at the door only.

Registration is required.
