"Plastic surgery is about quality of life. Our mission is to help improve your quality of life by providing you with the highest possible quality of care while maintaining the highest professional standards of practice and ethics. This is reflected in our philosophic approach and in our emphasis on safety and well-being.
Plastic surgery is not a repertoire of surgical procedures that we look up, pull off the shelf and perform. Plastic surgery is a thought process, a way of thinking about aesthetic surgical solutions. Because of our background, training and experience, we approach cosmetic challenges in a way that is different from other specialties, with emphasis on aesthetics as well as function. This is what makes a plastic surgeon different from any other surgeon that performs plastic surgical procedures.
Your education concerning plastic surgery is our primary goal. This allows you to make an informed decision before proceeding with any plastic surgical procedure.
The Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Pavilion opened in 1997 as part of the Central California Ear Nose and Throat Medical Group. While we benefit from a strong working relationship with our parent group, it is important to note that we are experienced plastic surgeons in Fresno, California who, supported by a wonderful team, are exclusively dedicated to the care and well being of plastic surgery patients."
