Before & After

A 41-year-old patient had liposuction of her abdomen, flanks and back to decrease fullness and improve symmetry.

A 55-year-old patient wanted to improve her neck and lower face contour. A necklift tightened her lower face and reduced the chin fullness to improve her contour.

A 35-year-old patient had a bilateral breast augmentation with silicone gel implants and axillary liposuction. She went from a 34A to a 36C cup. 

About The Practice

Our practice fulfills all of our patients’ cosmetic and reconstructive needs. We have more than 30 employees at our medical office, surgery center and full-service medical spa. Customer service is our #1 priority. We want our patients to be happy with their results and experience. Our five board-certified plastic surgeons offer the full spectrum of cosmetic surgery of the face, breasts and body as well as reconstructive procedures for diseases such as skin cancer and breast cancer.

Our accredited surgery center provides a private setting for surgery and accommodations for an overnight stay after surgery as part of the recovery package. Our medical spa is staffed with nurses, physician assistants, aestheticians and massage therapists providing a wide array of noninvasive treatments such as CoolSculpting, Botox, fillers, lasers and skin care. All of these services are located on one floor in one building, making the experience private, efficient and customized for our patients’ needs.

A Positive Environment

Providing a great work environment for our staff translates to outstanding care for our patients. Many patients comment that our office is a pleasure to visit and far beyond their expectations. We are motivated to provide the best experience for all of our patients, and creating a positive work environment is critical to that goal. Our staff enjoy coming to work—not only because of the great environment, but also because they get to enjoy many of the same treatments that our patients receive. This keeps everyone looking and feeling their best.

Health Tips

Our advice isn’t new or particularly sexy: Move every day and practice moderation. Exercise is the best antidepressant! Enjoyment of life is maximized when nothing is in excess.

A Favorite Treatment

Fat grafting for facial rejuvenation has significantly improved facial rejuvenation procedure results. Fat grafting can also be broken down into nanofat components for microneedling to further rejuvenate the skin and improve texture. We love to combine surgical and nonsurgical procedures (like a facelift and CO2 laser) to maximize a patient’s results.

A Calming Environment

From our warm and friendly staff to our bright, elegant facilities, we strive to make our patients’ treatment and aftercare stress-free. Our providers plan every step and take as much time as needed to clearly explain every procedure, the expected results and aftercare so patients feel confident in their decisions and never feel rushed. We take all of our patients’ concerns seriously and acknowledge the enormous trust they place in our hands.  This unique combination of emotional intelligence and technical skill is what has set our practice apart for so many years.

Preventive Measures

The proverb “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is incredibly true and relevant in the world of plastic surgery. We strive to help patients maintain their skin and physical health. Ideally, that should begin at an early age with skin protection, sunscreen and a healthy diet. Botox is also an excellent preventive treatment. Topical creams and serums with vitamins A and C should be used to minimize aging. Our staff can help customize the best treatment for each skin type in order to keep our patients looking healthy and young without surgery and without recovery time.
