About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

Today in aesthetic surgery, there are many choices of procedures, products, and technologies all working together to create your desired improvement. It is our goal to present you with information that will help you make your decision based upon the finest plastic surgery offered today. Our office is equipped with a state-of-the-art laser center used for procedures such as hair and tattoo removal, acne treatment and stretch mark removal. We have an Operating Room where Dr. DiBernardo performs hair transplants, administers injections such as BOTOX®, and provides skin treatments such as the Obagi Blue Peel and IPL FotoFacial®. Our patients' post-operative and follow-up visits are scheduled at this office.

You will quickly learn that aesthetic plastic surgery is a unique specialty similar to other divisions in the science of medicine, but unique in its blend of form, function, and artistic beauty. The 21st century brings emerging technological advances that we make available to you after careful review and selection.

You will find that our staff is warm, friendly, and compassionate. We are here to assist you through every step of your decision.

Our unrelenting pursuit to advance the scientific and technological aspects with an artistic blend as we individualize cosmetic excellence is exemplified by our photographic gallery. We are proud to display the symbol of the leading organization of cosmetic excellence, The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Thank you for taking our website tour. We look forward to helping you achieve your own personal excellence.
