In the News about Plastic Surgery

There are many “name-brand” procedures advertised for superior cosmetic results.  Many of these are merely new names for time tested procedures and some are relatively new technology and are still undergoing clinical testing.   New technology requires long term study to determine the efficacy, safety, and success rate.  Many studies have found that new technology, compared to standard procedures, produces no difference in terms of results.  Our physicians  evaluate each patient and procedure on an individual basis to choose the appropriate procedure to safely provide the desired result.

The best procedure for each individual patient should be determined according to their specific needs in a  consultation with a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Why should you choose a plastic surgeon certified by the American  Board of Plastic Surgery?
