Like a magical mirror, Plastic Surgery Center of Tulsa helps people see themselves as they want to be seen. A seasoned surgeon and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Greg Ratliff transforms bodies with liposuction, face-lifts, implants, and injections within a handsome, refurbished home on picturesque Cherry Street. An initial consultation with Dr. Ratliff illuminates each guest’s treatment options, demystifying treatments with detailed explanations and furnishing before-and-after pictures of patients with similar body types. Tucked away in the two-story manor, an onsite operating room houses most procedures, preventing hassle-filled trips to hospitals with their impersonal feel and unremitting visits from doctor-imitating clowns.
The adjoining Skin Deep Medical Spa beautifies bodies with noninvasive procedures, performed under the watchful eye of Dr. Ratliff. The beauty hub also stocks a treasure chest of advanced cosmetic and rejuvenation products so patrons can keep skin healthy after their procedures.

They’ll kick off personalized programs with bloodwork, measurements, and heart-to-heart talks about goals before administering treatments that take individual physiques and specific dietary needs into account. To customize the process even more, they can also map out the body’s unique response to certain foods and exercises with genetic and food-sensitivity testing.

They also offer Zerona treatments, which use cold-laser light to drain triglycerides from fat cells without breaking the skin and exposing the batteries beneath. They also offer specialty weight-loss programs for soon-to-be brides who need to fit into their dresses or new moms looking to ditch the postpregnancy sag.
