Meet Dr. Sabine Lovell
Attention to detail. Dedication to excellence. Compassionate patient care. Dr. Sabine Lovell lives by these mottos and her passion for the field of plastic surgery is undeniable. She is elated to bring her artistic finesse, feminine touch and enthusiasm to Muse Plastic Surgery. As one patient described— “Dr. Lovell is a talented surgeon who is compassionate, honest, hard working and puts her patients first.” Dr. Lovell finds the pre- to post-op physical transformation to be just one aspect of why her job is so rewarding. The renewed sense of empowerment and boost in self-confidence patients experience after surgery can be life-changing. Dr. Lovell prides herself on the warm, close-knit bonds she develops with her patients and working hand-in-hand to create a safe treatment plan to deliver beautiful yet natural results. She strongly believes that plastic surgery should be completely customized to the patient. One size or shape does not fit all! Dr. Lovell goes above and beyond for her patients and loves all aspects of plastic surgery, especially facial rejuvenation (surgical and non-surgical), mommy makeovers and body contouring after massive weight loss.
Dr. Lovell completed her residency in General Surgery at renowned Emory University. She fell in love with Plastic Surgery during a rotation at the end of her intern year.
