P. Craig Hobar MD
About the Practice
I consider it a privilege to be a plastic surgeon - that's why I am one of the founders of the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute and the Dallas Day Surgery Center. At it's essence, plastic surgery is a specialty designed to improve quality of life. It's very fulfilling to give my patients a new outlook on life. I am very careful to listen to my patients and make sure that I understand their expectations and use that information to determine who is a good candidate for plastic surgery. I strive to deliver the highest quality care and perform only the safest and most effective plastic surgery procedures.
I perform all cosmetic procedures in the Dallas Day Surgery Center. It is a fully accredited Day Surgery Center equipped with the most technically advanced equipment and safety features. It is important that I create the safest possible environment for my patients so I insist on using an anesthetist or an anesthesiologist during all of my procedures. As you will see throughout this site, I am involved with several professional organizations and educational institutions. I am continually exposed to the latest advancements in plastic surgery - both good and bad - and am very selective of the procedures I will perform. I must be convinced that a procedure is safe, effective and beneficial to my patient before I will perform it.
