This content was provided by Dr. Childers "One area of special interest to Dr. Childers is breast reconstruction after mastectomy. Being able to restore form, function, and confidence after cancer surgery is one of the greatest rewards for Dr. Childers. Dr. Childers also has a special interest in total body contouring procedures for patients who have experienced significant weight loss. These include body lifts and tummy tucks to enhance both a patient's body and self-esteem.

An all-around surgeon, Dr. Childers undertakes a number of plastic and reconstructive surgeries, including sub-specialties like hand surgery, microsurgery, and treats patients who have suffered from trauma and abnormal structures of the body. Some of his top surgeries are abdominoplasty, panniculectomy, breast augmentations, breast reductions, transgender breast reconstruction, and facelifts. He also does eyelid lifts and brow lifts and nonsurgical procedures like Juvéderm®, laser skin resurfacing, and chemical peels."
