Scott W. Mosser MD, FACS
About the Practice
Dr. Mosser listens and educates. He supports his patients in making their decision with an informative process that includes a thorough discussion of the available options. You will be empowered with the information it takes to make the right choices, confident about the procedures from the very start, and constantly aware of the support that our office provides. Dr. Mosser’s philosophy focuses on preserving the best features of your natural appearance, utilizing his knowledge of aesthetics to balance and improve the desired area of your body. Improvement through plastic surgery happens through establishing harmony, not by manipulating your fundamental appearance. Enhancing people’s lives and witnessing positive changes in self confidence are key reasons Dr. Mosser chose plastic surgery as his profession, and are the reasons that he loves performing plastic surgery everyday.
