Educate & Inform


If you are like most people, you would like to have access to information about cosmetic surgery before you commit to booking a consultation. For that reason, we are committed to providing an abundance of information on our website. We encourage you to explore this site at your leisure. Learn more about our unique approach and why to choose us.

Consultative Experience


Positive cosmetic surgery outcomes are highly dependent on several factors. Without question, the surgeon’s skill and experience is critical. What is often overlooked, however, is the importance of the surgical consult, which is when a communicative dialogue needs to take place between the surgeon and the patient so that expectations can be properly managed. In order to facilitate an informative relationship with our patients, we have formalized a process for managing the cosmetic surgery experience. We have a unique process for helping to ensure that patients are well informed with sufficient time to consult with their surgeon or treatment provider, and that their experience of preparing and recovering from surgery is facilitated each step of the way by our patient care experts.
