River City Plastic Surgery

Providing a wide range of cosmetic surgical procedures ranging from Breast Augmentations and Implants to Tummy Tucks and Liposuction. Dr. Barbara Howard is one of the only female plastic surgeons serving the Jefferson City, Columbia and Lake of the Ozarks area; adding a feminine touch to delicate procedures. We’ll make sure you approach your surgery with a full understanding of the procedure and a realistic expectation of your results. And Dr. Howard will be involved through the entire process; from the initial consultation to post-operative care.

  • I have to say a big 'thank you!' You gave me my confidence back. I can now look in a mirror! That is a big thing for me. I can't thank you enough.

  • I am thrilled with my results! Dr. Howard and her staff went above and beyond expectations! After researching for 3 years, I left Dr. Howard’s office on the first visit knowing she was the right doctor. I could have gone to the “big city” to have my surgery and I consulted with several doctors in the city, but there was no need once meeting Dr. Howard.

  • Dr. Howard was more understanding and sincere, than other doctors. I didn’t feel like “just another person”. Very comforting.

  • For years I felt very self-conscious about the way my body looked. After I had my consultation with Dr. Howard, I knew I was making the right decision about getting breast implants. She made sure I was completely comfortable with my decision and never made me feel like I was being judged for it.

  • Words can never express the feelings I am having now. However, words are what I have…I come home from work after being on my feet all day and can no longer feel the cutting straps in my shoulders nor the ache and pain in my back. My entire outlook on life has changed.

  • Thank you again Dr. Howard! It’s been a year now since the almost 9lbs was removed from my lower abdomen…the BEST thing I’ve ever done!! It’s hard to keep my weight down, but I’m working hard at it. I certainly have a lot to be grateful for!
