Boston Center for Plastic Surgery is one of the top aesthetic practices in Boston for many reasons. We are at the forefront of innovation, and we take a 360° approach to every procedure. This is why we have a team of Board-Certified cosmetic dermatologists and plastic surgeons to address all of your rejuvenation needs. This synergistic approach can not only maximize your results, but it saves you time. Instead of having to drive all over town to, for example, get your injectables in one office, laser hair removal somewhere else, and visit your plastic surgeon in yet another office for a skin tightening or fat grafting procedure, we provide all of these services, and more, in one convenient location. Furthermore, since your skin is the canvas upon which any other aesthetic procedure rests, the fact that we have two cosmetic dermatologists on staff means that it is always getting the attention it deserves.

Who Should Do Your Injectables Treatment?

Cosmetic Dermatologists + Plastic Surgeons = Better Care

Aging is multi-factorial. However, the skin is typically the first place to show the earliest signs of aging so it always needs to be part of any rejuvenation plan. Skin texture is one of the key elements to a rejuvenated look. Yet many patients don’t realize how important smooth skin can be for looking and feeling your best. Some of the most common complaints that bring patients into the office include:

  • Sun damage
  • Uneven, “crepey” skin
  • Discoloration
  • Brown spots
  • Melasma
  • Redness
  • Rosacea
  • Broken blood vessels
  • Acne

At the same time, your skin may be exhibiting some laxity. This typically manifests as “jowling”, which are drapes of skin around the mouth and lower face. The great thing about having both a cosmetic dermatologist and a plastic surgeon in-house is that we can treat everything at once. This could mean a facelift, neck liposuction, microneedling or fat grafting session with me to lift your skin and boost its radiance plus a laser skin resurfacing and appropriate skincare regime with medical grade products from Dr. Michelon or Dr. Moustafa to maintain your new, healthy-looking glow. Or you could see any of us for Botox® and dermal fillers as we are all experts in injectables, and excel at knowing when to inject, where to inject, and, critically, when and where not to inject.

Benefits of Comprehensive Approach

The number one thing that our Boston area patients love about our comprehensive approach is that it saves them time. But there are so many other benefits to seeking treatment at Boston Center for Plastic Surgery. We have not just one, but two Board-Certified plastic surgeons. I am an expert in surgical and nonsurgical procedures for the face such as:

While my colleague, Dr. Sean Doherty, is an expert in body contouring procedures such as:

In addition, we also have two cosmetic dermatologists with deep training in all of the various lasers as well as the latest in skin, hair, and nail care. What this means for you is that we will never recommend a procedure simply because it’s the only one we offer. This is not true when visiting someplace like a MedSpa that only has non-surgical options.

Individualized Treatment is Key to Exemplary Result

Our number one goal is to deliver an exemplary result. The real key to this is an individualized treatment plan. No two patients are alike. Even if you’re related, you and your sibling may not get the same result with the same procedure. This is why every rejuvenation plan is tailored to your unique anatomy, needs, and lifestyle. The latter can be important when it comes to deciding between a surgical or non-surgical approach. Sometimes, a patient might have enough skin laxity to really warrant surgery, but a job or home life that simply can’t support downtime. We will always be honest with you about what you can realistically expect with any given procedure. While non-surgical choices may not be on par with surgery for addressing skin laxity issues, we have developed some unique approaches here at Boston Center for Plastic Surgery that can truly deliver a powerful non-surgical result.

So, if the reflection you see when you look in the mirror makes you feel tired, drab, or simply not your best, schedule an appointment to come in and talk with our team about how we can help.
