What is Plastic Surgery?

By November 29, 2008Uncategorized
The ultimate goal of Plastic Surgery is the creation of form and function in the pursuit of aesthetic ideals. Accomplishing this requires the technical skills, the vision, and understanding of the individual needs of the patient combined with compassion and a relentless pursuit of perfection.

Plastic Surgery has gone through many changes since its inception as a specialty; however, its foundations have not changed in its principled and rigorous approach to wound healing, understanding of 3-dimensional anatomy, and problem solving. Plastic Surgery is a fusion of these fundamentals with an eye for the “aesthetic.” It is the fusion of Form & Function and the fusion of Science and Art that sets our specialty apart. Plastic Surgery is more than “skin deep.” It starts from the skeleton to the skin and keeps in mind movement and sensation. Plastic Surgery is the specialty that allows us to rebuild and rejuvenate the human body from the ground up with safe techniques and lasting results.
