About the Practice

He believes in restoring the features patients have lost over time by providing a more youthful appearance. He accomplishes this through artistry, years of surgical expertise and by utilizing current techniques that provide optimal results with the least possible downtime.

Your Consultation

The initial consultation is a very important step in the plastic surgery process. It enables patients to meet Dr. Sadove and talk confidentially with him about their surgical goals and anticipated results. It is a chance for them to have an open, honest dialogue, ask questions as well as meet his staff members. The goal of the consultation is for patients to have all the information they need to make an informed decision and feel comfortable with their planned procedure.

Dr. Sadove and his staff care for and treat patients as they would a member of their own family.

During the consultation, Dr. Sadove uses Touch MD. This educational touch screen tool enables him to show procedure videos as well as draw diagrams on the screen to help patients understand what he will be doing during their surgery. He can also show them before and after photos specific to their procedure. Patients can also set up a personal login in order to view the information discussed during the consultation in the privacy of their own home.
