About Dr. Tolson

The number one goal of Dr. Tolson’s surgical practice is to build the self-confidence and self-esteem of each and every one of his patients, allowing their inner selves to shine through.

Michael Tolson, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Dr. Michael Tolson is a cosmetic surgeon who gives his patients the highest quality, individualized, cosmetic care available. He takes his more than 25 years of plastic surgery experience and combines it with training from top schools to produce specific, comprehensive, cosmetic plans for each patient. Through a blend of both plastic surgical techniques and non-invasive treatments, Dr. Tolson treats each patient on an individual basis, seeking to develop the treatment plan that is right for each person.

Dr. Tolson’s skill in plastic surgery is a direct reflection of the devotion he has to achieving the individual goals of each patient. Upon beginning his private practice in 1989, his primary focus for all patients has been to create a plan of care tailored to the individual. That process begins with personalized consults and continues with support from him and his highly trained staff before, during and well after their surgery. Today his surgical practice continues to grow through the recommendation of patients to their friends and family.

For those who need a procedure performed in a hospital, Dr. Tolson has privileges at Northside Hospital and North Fulton Hospital as well.

Having begun his medical journey with a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry from the Georgia Institute of Technology, he went on to study medicine, earning his doctorate from the Medical College of Georgia, the state’s medical flagship school. Dr. Tolson completed his surgical residency at Memorial Medical Center in Savannah, Georgia. After receiving his board certification in surgery in 1987, he went on to complete a plastic surgery fellowship at the prestigious Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital in New York, which is known for its plastic surgery department, and opened his private practice in 1989.

What Dr. Tolson’s Clients Are Saying

Although Dr. Tolson has spent over 25 years practicing in the plastic surgery field, in 2004 he decided to specialize in cosmetic surgical procedures; and today he offers facelifts, breast augmentations, liposuction, tummy tucks, and much, much more. For every procedure he performs, Dr. Tolson keeps his primary goals in mind – to build self-confidence and self-esteem.

He begins every procedure with a personalized consultation, taking the time to get to know his patients and their specific needs and goals. His highly-trained staff support him throughout the process beginning at the front desk, extending to the operating room, and finishing up at checkout. Throughout the entire cosmetic process, Dr. Tolson keeps in mind that each patient is a unique individual with unique needs that demand unique solutions. He does not try to use “cookie-cutter” remedies but, rather, customizes every treatment plan to meet the needs of the individual patient.
