About the Practice
Aesthetic Surgery Associates is founded on three interwoven principles: Innovation, Compassion, and Excellence. Innovation represents advanced surgical techniques and proven cutting-edge technology. However, technical ability alone in aesthetic surgery falls short unless it is applied with thoughtfulness and sensitivity. Compassion for our patient’s needs combines honest and open communication with attentive care throughout the entire surgical experience. Blending compassion and surgical innovation creates the conditions for achieving true excellence in patient care.
