William E. LoVerme MD
About the Practice
Dr. LoVerme is among the top cosmetic surgeons in the Boston area, with distinctions as President of the Massachusetts Society of Plastic Surgeons and Chief of Plastic Surgery at two major hospitals. By teaching advanced surgical seminars, conducting medical research, and practicing independently since 1985, he continually maintains his expertise and remains up-to-date on the latest surgical techniques. While Dr. LoVerme's experience provides him with superior technical skill, he recognizes that technical skill alone does not lead to successful surgery. Today more than ever, patients desire natural looking results. The goal of modern cosmetic surgery is to create an enhanced appearance for patients without changing their individual look. Specializing in cosmetic surgery for over seventeen years has provided Dr. LoVerme with the artistic ability to achieve these natural looking results.
Dr. LoVerme established Accurate Aesthetics in 1996 with the mission of providing exceptional care in a personal practice. Patients come to Accurate Aesthetics with very different expectations for plastic surgery. Dr. LoVerme and his staff devote the time and personal attention necessary to understand these expectations. Because every body is unique, every surgery Dr. LoVerme performs is individual and personalized.
Plastic Surgery is a unique medical specialty that relies on a doctor's technical skill and artistic ability. Your plastic surgeon must have the experience to visualize and clearly explain the results of your surgery. Your surgeon is the person with whom you will discuss expectations, formulate reasonable goals, and bring these goals to life. Therefore, optimal results depend on a close relationship between you and your doctor. Our commitment to the following goals helps us to foster this relationship of trust:
All information pertaining to your appointment, including what you discuss with the doctor, is held in the strictest confidence.
The decision to consider plastic surgery is an individual, private one. We provide one-on-one consultation with Dr. LoVerme, follow-up appointments after surgery, and availability by telephone for your questions.
Full Patient Education
We use customized videotapes and brochures to introduce you to the field of plastic surgery. Additionally, we use state of the art computer imaging to help you visualize results before they take place. Our goal is to ensure you choose the most appropriate procedure to meet your personal needs.

It is preferable to make an appointment for consultation by calling in person. This will give you the most flexibility in obtaining the exact time that fits your schedule best. Phone numbers are 781-263-0011 and 877-603-SURG (7874) for toll free in the U.S. International clients sometimes find it easier to utilize email for their correspondence and appointments may be obtained in this manner.
We usually schedule at least one hour for initial cosmetic surgery consultation. At Accurate Aesthetics Plastic Surgery we believe a well educated patient is one who will do best after surgery. You will be asked not what operation you want, but what bothers you. We want to take the time to be sure that we are treating exactly the areas that bother you. The doctor will examine you and make recommendations about the best surgery to treat your problem as well as any alternatives that may be available. A form will be completed with all past medical history (please bring a list of medications and dosages with you). You will most often be shown a short film about the type of surgery requested. You will meet with our nurse or technician who will review many aspects of surgery with you. We will answer any other questions you may have. Photographs will be taken to include in your medical record. You will then meet with our patient care coordinator who will give you an exact quote for the price of surgery as well as discuss any possible surgery dates with you. We ask that you tell us about each of the areas you would like to discuss at the time of making your appointment so that we are able to schedule correctly and not keep others waiting. Please allow 1 ½ hours of time to be in the office for the entire appointment.
