The Patients' Choice for Facial and Skin Rejuvenation

By Catherine Rips

Named one of the "Top Cosmetic Surgeons in the World” by the International Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, David M. Morrow, M.D. is the patients’ choice for facial and skin rejuvenation and enhancement. A diplomate of the American Boards of Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology, he is dedicated not just to aesthetics but to patients’ overall well-being.

Founder and director of The Morrow Institute in Rancho Mirage, and a prestigious post-residency cosmetic surgery fellowship program affi liated with the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and American Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons, Dr. Morrow is the originator of many facial cosmetic surgery procedures now in use throughout the world. Always striving to improve patient outcomes both surgically and nonsurgically, he also developed the highly regarded MorrowMD line of anti-aging skin care products, which boasts a loyal following. Once patients begin using his products, they’d rather “fight than switch.”


For nearly 30 years, Dr. Morrow has distinguished himself through achievements in skin and facial rejuvenation. A pioneer in the field, he performed the first laser facelift and pioneered the Designed Skin Peel®, Triangle Lift®, Diamond Lift®, Contiguous-Blepharoplasty-Eyelid Skin Rejuvenation and most recently, the Stork Lift™. Each technique affords effective, natural looking solutions to specific concerns.

Dr. Morrow employs these proven techniques, holistic remedies and more to help men and women look ageless and refreshed. Or as his patient Carol Harris says, “Like I just got back from a three-year vacation!”

Since founding The Morrow Institute in 1988, Dr. Morrow has been a featured speaker at top national and international symposiums in Europe, Asia, Australia, and North and South America. His remarkable achievements have been widely recognized by his global peers. International cosmetic and plastic surgery journals have likewise published dozens of articles on his groundbreaking work and he is frequently asked to review the work of others.


In cosmetic surgery, patient satisfaction is the ultimate test. Well known for his long-lasting, natural looking facelifts, Dr. Morrow attracts discerning patients from around the world and around the corner who appreciate the value of quality.

Glenis Bailey, a native of Gloucestershire, England, is a case in point. She interviewed surgeons for nearly two years before choosing Dr. Morrow. “Every other doctor I spoke with made me feel all the more certain Dr. Morrow was the right choice for me,” she recalls. She made her decision and never looked back.

Many others feel the same. Their satisfaction earned Dr. Morrow three consecutive “Patients’ Choice Awards.” He was also singled out for a “Compassionate Doctor Recognition” – another honor bestowed upon him by happy patients.


“Facelift” is a catch-all term for many varieties of facial surgery. One reason for Dr. Morrow’s success is he understands with facelifts, less is rarely more.

“The first step to achieving natural looking results,” Dr. Morrow explains, “is to understand that each person is a unique individual. When a patient comes for a consultation, we discuss his or her goals. Then, depending on the patient’s features, skin condition, and general health, we discuss options and develop a plan. It’s important to know the facelift I perform on one patient will not be the same I perform on another.”

Patients respond to and trust his approach. “I wanted cosmetic surgery,” Carol Harris adds, “but I didn’t want to look like I’d had a facelift or to look like someone else. I didn’t want that tightness you so often see.”

Snowbird Dawn Kerrigan says it best. “Dr. Morrow sees each individual and understands how to perform whatever procedures will give the best outcome. He has the ability and expertise to treat each face like a piece of art.”


Like surgeons, treatment centers are on a spectrum. Only a few are truly outstanding. The Morrow Institute campus ranks among them. Serene gardens, a tranquil medical spa, private consultation areas, and an AAAHC-accredited, state-of-the-art surgery center bring together art and science to enhance each patient’s outcome.


With so many accomplishments to his credit, one stands out for Dr. Morrow: ensuring his patients have an exceptional experience. “I’ve had the privilege of helping many patients, each of whom is special to me,” he says. “My goal is always to exceed their expectations. By far, my greatest satisfaction comes from seeing how our work enhances and often improves their lives.”


Beyond elective procedures to enhance and rejuvenate the face and skin, Dr. Morrow applies his unique expertise to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer. This experience informs his philosophy, “Beautiful Skin is Healthy Skin,” the inspiration behind MorrowMD skin care.

The choice for men and women of all ages who want healthy, youthful-looking skin, MorrowMD products combine advanced science with Dr. Morrow’s pragmatic approach to preventing and reversing sun damage and skin aging. For beautiful skin, Dr. Morrow recommends MorrowMD on its own or as the finishing touch to facelift surgery, skin peels, Botox®, facial fi llers or aesthetician services. MorrowMD is available at www.morrowmd.com.
