An Interview with Dr. Daugherty
I went to medical school thinking I would be a pediatrician, but nothing prepared me for how much I would love my surgery rotation. I was amazed that instantly we were able to make a change in someone’s life. As I went on through my surgery residency, I chose plastic surgery because of the creativity it allows and precision it demands. I’m an artist and a perfectionist, so it’s a perfect fit.
It is such a good feeling to be able to give some extra confidence with reconstructive and cosmetic procedures. I have battled with my own insecurities, especially after giving birth to twins, so I am incredibly empathetic to others struggling in situations that life inevitably hands to all of us. Read what some of Dr. Daugherty’s previous patients have said about their experiences in reviews posted on independent, reputable patient forums.
I hope to have a long and rewarding career helping others feel better about themselves. I hope to provide consistently beautiful results in satisfied patients. My goal is to make you look like you—only better—and for no one else to know your secret!
I am a perfectionist and dedicated to excellence in everything I do. My goal is for care to be top notch and personalized for each patient. I strive to deliver consistently beautiful results to satisfied patients. My chief aspiration is to enhance the natural beauty of my patients. Plastic surgery should not look fake – you should look like yourself, only better.
I work extremely hard to give the best result for each patient. That includes thorough and thoughtful pre-operative planning that is individualized, operative execution of the plan and quality post-operative care. I treat all my patients like I would treat my family, including honestly telling them which options will deliver the best results to help achieve their goals – even when this may not be the most popular option or what they want to hear. I will also tell patients honestly if they are not good candidates for one thing or another.
I love being able to make a transformative change in my patients. Seeing happy patients back for their post operative care makes all of my training and the long hours I continue to pour into my craft all worth it.
I love to spend time with my family, especially outdoors. We spend a good amount of time at practices and games for our older boys. We are blessed that most of our extended family and lots of friends are in south Louisiana so that we can visit often as well. I also love to decorate – our home is ever evolving – and paint although I have had little uninterrupted time for that since our children were born.
Dedicated, thorough, compassionate
The mentors that have made the most lasting impact on my life and career are the ones who were the hardest on me. Because they expected a lot I was motivated to earn their respect. My mentor in plastic surgery who was almost like a father figure to me in training was the very hard nosed and nationally respected Dr. Edward Luce. I think anyone who has trained for a long time to be great at something can relate to this – athletes come to mind. The “attagirls” are so worth the long hours and extra preparation. Now those “attagirls” moments are the smiles on my patients faces when they come back after surgery.
I was born and raised in Opelousas, Louisiana and attended school at Opelousas Catholic School from kindergarten through 12th grade.
My medical school and general surgery training were at LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans. I completed a residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center in Memphis, Tennessee.
I specialize in cosmetic surgery of the face, breast and body. Lots of my patients are mothers who have completed child bearing and want to get their bodies back. I also love being able to restore confidence in my aging face patients and to patients who need body contouring surgeries after massive weight loss as well.
I am dedicated to excellence in everything that I do. My treatments and surgical plans are thoughtfully and carefully individualized to the needs and desires of my patients. They will see me at every scheduled visit during their important surgical planning and post operative care, not someone standing in for me because I’m too busy. I want every patient to have a customized, elevated experience from the time they set foot in the practice to the time that they leave.
I got bitten by the surgery bug as a medical student on my general surgery rotation. I was amazed that doctors were able to make an instant change in someone’s life, and I wanted to be a part of that. I was too impatient to wait for medications to work on the non surgical rotations. As I went through my general surgery rotation, I ultimately chose plastic surgery to specialize in because of the creativity it allows and precision it demands. I’m an artist, and a perfectionist, so it’s a perfect fit.
I am organized and thorough. I live by lists and get a weird satisfaction checking things off as I go. I studied extremely hard and continue to read, interact with my peers and go to conferences to keep up on the latest and greatest in my ever evolving field. I also have very supportive parents who have been there every step of the way especially after my children were born so that I could continue to chase my dreams.
Somewhere mid-way through training, I realized that the types of surgery I was best at and liked doing most were the finer tuned surgeries. I spent some time with plastic surgeons and ultimately chose this field for the creativity it allows. There are often several ways to “skin the cat” and you get to decide along with the patient which way will best achieve their goals.
I was pregnant, gave birth and nursed/pumped at work all of my children. I was the first pregnant resident ever during my plastic surgery training. That was definitely interesting. Most people were very supportive, but there were definitely those that I had to work extra hard to earn their respect. I remember once when I had to run between cases to pump after my first child, an elder attending surgeon asked “Robyn, what does the baby eat all day while you’re here?” and I replied “the stuff from the day before”. He said “Ok – carry on.” Haha – normalizing pumping as a surgeon. By the time I had our last baby, I was able to have individual hands free battery powered pumps so that I could pump while operating and not miss a beat.
Having children during training definitely grounded me. I had to stay organized and get my work done after they were sleeping. I focused very hard on quality time with them whenever I was home. I would read and prepare for my cases and conferences until late at night after they went to bed.
I give every patient and case my absolute best, from the pre-operative planning, to execution of the operation to post-operative care. I am a good listener and try to come up with a plan that fits the needs of each patient while still delivering the best result possible. I am also extremely honest with my patients. I would want my doctor to be upfront with me too – so I treat everyone like I would treat my own family – only selecting procedures in their best interest. I am not afraid to tell a patient when they are not a candidate for a certain operation, even if I know that’s not what they want to hear.
I am very physically and emotionally tough because of the years of surgical training to get to where I am today. The extra work and extra respect I had to earn put a tiny chip on my shoulder which makes me a fighter. I was always thinking, “Ok you think I can’t do it, just sit back and watch me”. I am constantly trying to instill that work ethic into my boys. I always tell them that natural talent will only take them so far, they have to practice and work or the kid next door who’s maybe not as talented is going to eventually outwork them.
