About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

One of the most important criteria of selecting a plastic surgery team is the amount of experience that they offer. Dr. Gonzalez Cepeda is proud to offer more than 20 years of experience with plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as aesthetic treatment. In our years of experience - and through vigorous study of our cases - we’ve learned what type of facial , breast , and body contouring treatment will best benefit our patients. For example, we know which breast lift incision technique will suit a certain body type, what the best fat transfer techniques for filling in a “fat fracture” are, and what type of laser treatment will most effectively clear up acne scars or areas of pigmentation. We also are attuned to the latest and safest surgical approaches and take every precaution to ensure our patients’ health and safety. You can trust our team to provide you with the highest standard of care.
