The Greek word PLASTIKOS means to mold or form. Plastic Surgery remolds or reshapes the human form. Plastic surgery, Aesthetic surgery and Cosmetic surgery are synonymous for surgeries to improve the appearance of breast, body and face. While aesthetic plastic surgery is not essential to physical health, it can make a significant contribution to emotional well-being by improving the appearance of normal body features and enhancing the self-image. Hundreds of thousands of people choose to have plastic surgery to change the way they look. Changes can be very noticeable or very subtle refinements. Improving a feature of your face or body through plastic surgery results in added confidence and a psychological boost that can have a positive impact in many areas of life.

Fly In for Surgery
It is very common for many of my patients to fly in from all over the USA and other countries. We can plan for surgery through emails and emailed photos. An appointment can be sent for 1 or 2 days prior to the planned surgery date to allow finalization of the surgical plan and to make sure we are all in agreement with the proposed surgery. Patients will them stay post surgical procedure for 1 day to 1 week depending on the surgical procedure.
