About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

Our focus in cosmetic surgery is dedicated to the fine art of achieving beautiful and natural appearing aesthetic results in the safest possible environment. We place the greatest attention to personalized caring, believing every patient is completely unique and deserves a personalized plan to achieve their goals. To reach optimal results, an understanding must be achieved between patient and surgeon, an agreement on the surgical goals, and ultimately, a deep personal trust. We believe in the relentless pursuit of perfection and see no substitute for trying to obtain it in all that we do. Our patients should feel welcome in our office; we continually strive to establish long-term relationships that will meet their changing needs. Lastly, we cannot place enough emphasis on the important nature of the artistic component of cosmetic surgery; it forms the defining feature of all our work. One day soon we hope to have the opportunity to discuss your specific cosmetic wishes and goals.

For all of his surgical procedures, Dr. Vitenas utilizes a board-certified anesthesiologist, keeping patient safety a top priority. Once patients are discharged to rest and heal at home, Dr. Vitenas will continue to carefully monitor their recovery, keep them comfortable with appropriate pain medications, and schedule regular follow-up appointments.
