Deaconess Plastic Surgery Practice Philosophy
At Deaconess Clinic Plastic Surgery, our surgeons believe in holding the highest standards in surgical expertise and patient care, treating all as they would want to be treated. They derive a great deal of satisfaction as plastic surgeons by creating a positive impact in patients’ lives and improving their confidence and self-esteem.


Because each patient is unique in needs and goals, we focus on providing individualized care while basing each aspect of our practice on a foundation of respect and dignity.  We believe our patients must be fully informed and take time to help our patients make decisions based on clear information and realistic goals in a relaxed, comfortable environment.

We strive to utilize the most current and proven surgical techniques. Safety is paramount, and we perform all major surgical procedures in accredited surgical facilities.

We take pride in creating a surgery experience that patients find fulfilling and comfortable. Our biggest rewards are our satisfied patients and the relationships that we develop in our practice.
