Destination Plastic Surgery

If you are dreaming of a transformation that enhances your appearance and rejuvenates your mind and spirit you have connected to the right place and methodology. The McCollough Institute for Appearance and Health is a world-class life enhancement center founded by the world-renowned life-enhancement physician and surgeon, Dr. E. Gaylon McCollough. Located in the heart of Craft Farms, a stunning Arnold Palmer-designed golf resort, just minutes away from the pristine sugar-white beaches of Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, Alabama, this institute is a modern-day aesthetic haven, reminiscent of the mythological Fountain of Youth.

The Facility

Spread across a sprawling four-acre estate, the institute’s 36,000-square-foot building is a modern marvel designed to cater to discerning consumers seeking life-enhancing procedures and philosophies. The facility is equipped with state-of-the-art surgical suites, consultation rooms, and treatment areas. The standout feature is the inclusion of on-site recovery villas, where out-of-town patients can stay and recuperate—while cared for by trained, and around-the-clock, care-givers in on-site, roomy, and appropriately-appointed villas, or suites.

Your Personalized “Rejuvacation” Experience

“Rejuvacation ” is a cutting-edge term, and advanced-care concept created and pioneered by Dr. McCollough. One that blends rejuvenation with a vacation. In broader terms: Rejuvacation is the art and science of mind, body, and spiritual healing—and renewal–that takes place in a serene, coastal and golfing paradise. The patients who occupy our recovery villas are attended to by private caregivers, as long as they wish 24-hour care, as well as the clinic’s medical staff twice daily. This extraordinary level of post-operative care and attention tends to ensure a smooth and comfortable recovery. And the institute’s Skin Center and Total Health Spa provide complementary healing and well-being services.

The McCollough Institute and Plastic Surgery Clinic have a long history of patients who travel from all over America, and world to rejuvenate their bodies, minds, and spirits in a world-class facility, with world-class surgeons, located in a golf and beach resort.
