“Plastic surgery is a unique blend of sound medical judgment, surgical technique, art and the discriminating use of emerging technologies. Plastic surgery is most effective when a specific cosmetic concern is treated with the most appropriate cosmetic procedure. To ensure that this is the case, patients should always seek a board-certified, well-trained plastic surgeon who can safely offer multiple surgical and non-surgical options. A surgeon with many tools in his or her toolbox is most likely to get you the result you want. As the old saying goes, "Just because you have a hammer doesn’t mean that everything is a nail.”
