Thomas R. Walek MD
About the Practice
Cosmetic surgery makes it possible to correct many flaws and signs of premature aging. By changing how you look, cosmetic surgery can help change how you feel about yourself. Dr. Walek stresses natural and subtle cosmetic procedures, which enhance rather than change one's appearance. As with all elective surgery, good health and realistic expectations are a prerequisite. Successful plastic surgery is a result of a good rapport between patient and surgeon. Trust, based on realistic expectations and exacting medical expertise, develops in the consultation stage before surgery.
Every New Year, millions of people resolve to lose weight. Some are successful, some are not. Even the most successful dieter has problems getting rid of as much fat as they would like. Some areas of their body do not respond to diet and exercise the way they would like them to. It comes as no surprise then, that some of the most common cosmetic plastic surgery procedures involve a reshaping of the body through removal of excess fat deposits. If you're considering this type of procedure, read more about some of the procedures we perform.
Dr. Walek performs a wide array of both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures, including face lifts, brow lifts, rhinoplasty, abdominoplasty and liposuction; breast lifts, breast augmentation and breast reduction.
