About The Practice
Our practice of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery is provided in a highly personalized, professional and state-of-the-art office environment. Consultation, pre-surgical preparation, surgery and post-surgical care are provided in a professional and caring manner.
Consultations provide ample time with the surgeon to allow for a thorough evaluation, based on patient concerns and priorities. Patient education and understanding are the primary goals of the consultation.
Preoperative preparation provides in-depth individualized instruction, computer imaging and thorough discussion by surgeon and staff.
Surgery procedures are carried out in our state-of-the-art office/surgical suite, which is accredited by the American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities. Most cosmetic procedures are performed using local anesthesia with intravenous sedation (twilight sleep), providing for patient comfort without the added risk of a general anesthetic (deep sleep). A certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) administers the IV sedation and monitors our patients manually and electronically, further enhancing safety and reducing risk.
Post-surgical care is done on an outpatient basis for nearly all cosmetic procedures, permitting patients to convalesce in the comfort of familiar surroundings. Our staff is in contact by telephone and available for any patient problems or concerns. For some more extensive procedures, limited care facilities are utilized.
