About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

“In more than 30 years of practice in the field of Plastic Surgery, I strive for predictable results with a complication rate as low as possible. I have seen many patients (and surgeons) burned by seeking “the latest thing.” Since the completion of my residency in 1982, I have added many procedures, but only after they have been tested and perfected. To reduce risk further, I only operate in a fully-staffed hospital with a regular OR team and experienced Anesthesiologists.

Plastic Surgery is meticulous, custom work. I was blessed to train under one of the top Plastic Surgery educators, D Ralph Millard MD FACS, at the University of Miami, who didn’t teach us procedures, but fundamental principles so that we could design operations to solve the unique problems which confronted us. For this reason I practice both reconstructive and aesthetic surgery. Reconstructive surgery requires creativity and innovation; aesthetic surgery demands finesse and attention to detail. The practice of Plastic Surgery is a fusion of both disciplines.” RJP

Your Consultation

“A consultation for aesthetic surgery is truly a meeting of the minds -- the development of a connection between patient and surgeon. Your job is to tell me what you want; my job is to tell you what’s possible, reasonable, realistic, and, above all, safe. With the internet, I often see many “educated consumers,” who have researched the procedure as well as the surgeon they select. I will take the time to answer your questions and help you sort out truth from fiction, classic from trendy. We may take photographs and have you return to analyze them. I will discuss the goals for surgery as well as the procedure and the post-operative care. You will have a discussion of possible risks and complications. Feel free to bring a family member or friend with you if you wish, both to the consultation or after surgery.” RJP
