About the Practice
At The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery, our philosophy is centered upon the well-being of our plastic surgery patients; not only how they look, but also how they feel. We take pride in seeing our cosmetic surgery patients' self-esteem soar when they witness the dramatic physical transformations possible after plastic surgery. Our plastic surgeons have even seen the physical transformations from cosmetic surgery lead to profound spiritual transformations, where people see themselves relating to the world positively - again, or even maybe for the first time. Our vision is to provide our cosmetic surgery patients with an unprecedented level of service and care. The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery offers a dedicated team of professional men and women who work hard to meet the vision of the practice. Every team member is expected to exceed the expectations of our plastic surgery patients and go the extra mile to ensure their safety and well-being.
