Some of you may have preconceived ideas about just what it is a plastic surgeon does during the course of the day. If you think plastic surgery is only accessible to the rich and that I spend all my days doing breast enlargement and face lifts. we hope you'll find clicking through this web site interesting and educational.
Some plastic surgeons limit their practice to elective cosmetic surgery; however, my 30 year practice has been based on both cosmetic and non cosmetic procedures. Today, my practice is limited to cosmetic surgery, lesions and cancer reconstruction and hand aliments such as carpal tunnel, ganglions, trigger fingers, etc. In days past; however, you might have shared my waiting room with a child treated for a dog bite, a teenager with facial injuries from an auto accident, a hand injury from a power saw or lawn mower, a burn or cancer reconstruction patient, someone who had a mole or a ganglion removed, carpal tunnel surgery or the typical cosmetic surgery patient who's had a nip or tuck of some kind.

Plastic Surgery treats patients of all ages for various cosmetic and non-cosmetic needs. Most popular cosmetic procedures are done as an outpatient with very little down time or loss of work. Many of our procedures cost less than your summer vacation. Complications are very infrequent and usually not severe. Financing may be available. Many non-cosmetic procedures are covered by insurance. It's uncommon for others to notice specific changes in your appearance and, of course, you can get information before you decide to make an appointment.
