What sets us apart from the rest?
Yes, Dr. Jabs and I are both board-certified plastic surgeons, as are many. However, not all have achieved the Certificate of Advanced Education in Cosmetic Surgery from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). But, what really sets us apart is the forty years of combined experience in treating thousands of patients with cosmetic surgery. We have developed unique techniques that help our patients heal faster with quicker recovery and obtain a more natural look.

Some specific differences between us and the rest:

Breast Augmentation – We achieve markedly less post-op pain with a technique we developed that was published in our national journal in September 2008 (.pdf downloadable on our homepage). Some patients do not even take post-op pain medicine.

Face – We have developed a face lifting technique using short scars that has very fast recovery and gives an amazingly natural look. Most patients are back to work in a week.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) – We have developed a method that contours the abdomen leaving shape and definition. This technique also dramatically reduces the most common complication of seroma formation.

Liposuction – We use thin cannulas to achieve smooth results using the latest in tumescent, power-assisted, and ultrasonic liposuction techniques.

These are a few of the differences. We pride ourselves that with every procedure we perform our experience has left us with skills to obtain great results with fast recovery. Nobody in our practice is more important than you.  From the first phone call to your last appointment, be assured that you will be treated with compassion and integrity.
