Meet the Natural Face Clinics™ Staff

For each and every patient, our staff strives to provide you with a comfortable, friendly, and private atmosphere.  And since most of our staff members have been with the practice for over 10 years (almost 20 years for some!), you can also feel confident knowing that you are choosing a team that is experienced and knows how to cater to your needs and concerns.  If you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a consultation, please contact our office today.

Mary Barrigar
Practice Administrator, Event Coordinator, Patient Concierge


Mary began her journey in healthcare twenty years ago.  Starting out as a receptionist, she has been able to sit in many different seats along the way and experience many aspects in the healthcare field. Today, Mary genuinely enjoys her role as the Practice Administrator, events coordinator and a Patient Concierge for Syracuse Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery.  Mary provides guidance for surgical and non-surgical services. “The smallest tweak can make a big difference in how we view ourselves and how we interact with others.”  Mary’s loyal commitment to the practice and our patients is a reason that she is respected amongst her peers and patients. She takes daily pride promoting patient advocacy and works relentlessly to improve the overall patient experience.  “The greatest joy is watching patients who express feeling wonderful on the inside, now be able to feel that way on the outside”. Mary enjoys continually learning new aspects of the aesthetic field and stays well informed on the latest treatments and technologies.  She holds memberships with OFSPA, Organization of Facial Plastic Surgery Assistants, and the NAPW, National Association of Professional Women.

When away from the office Mary enjoys spending time gardening, swimming, music, and spending time with her growing family.  Her husband Loren is a world-class guitarist and the family enjoys traveling and seeing the world.  Together, they have four active, athletic boys, one of them a golden retriever whom they all adore.
