Plastic Surgery Consumer Information
creating OUR UNIQUE PLASTIC SURGERY WEBSITE, we
have adopted “Beauty begins with knowledge” as not
just a clever motto, but as our guiding practice
philosophy. The following statement sums up

than their predecessors did; unfortunately, much
of it is misinformation."

and Pitfalls” format
is a point-counterpoint discussion of plastic surgery
topics—that include both the positives and negatives of
a procedure or issue, in an attempt to provide a balanced
perspective on that topic. The information
provided is factual, but does include our opinions. We
have made a conscious effort to be fair, factual
and ethical in our presentations and opinions on our website,
just as we do in our practice.
