Our Mission

“Surgery is not only a matter of operating skillfully.  It must engage in its service qualities of mind and heart that raise it to the highest level of human endeavor.  A patient can offer you no higher tribute than to entrust you with his life and health and by implication with the happiness of all of his family. To be worthy of this trust, we must submit for a lifetime to the constant discipline of universal effort in the search of knowledge and most reverent devotion to every detail in every operation we perform.” – Sir Berkeley Moyinhan

“We restore what God has given, but fate has taken away.  Not so much to please the eye of the beholder as to buoy up the spirit of the afflicted.” – Gaspare Tagliacozzi (1560)


Each of us defines beauty differently, has our own goals and a unique view when we look in the mirror. So many of us see something we don’t like, hold a painful memory in our skin or simply wish to make a change. Choosing plastic surgery and aesthetic treatment is personal. It takes courage to be vulnerable, to speak our insecurities out loud. Our job is not to judge you or pressure you into fitting into a mold or stereotype. We know you never could. What you can do is live a more confident, happier life, and we will try our very best to help you achieve that. You’re beautiful to us whether you’re coming in for a consultation or leaving after your last post-op appointment. We welcome every body with open arms and love you just as you are, always and all ways.
