Our Practice

office interior One of the first things our patients notice upon entering our specially designed facility is a soothing and relaxing environment influenced by the ancient principles of Asian tranquility. Here, our patients are expertly cared for as our professional and skilled staff accompany them on an individually realized and guided journey to bring their inner beauty to the surface.

Valuing a surgical philosophy that recognizes each patient as unique, we are committed to walking each patient through his or her transformative experience. Because our training is based on an emphasis of the reconstruction of form and function, each and every one of our patients receives a completely individualized assessment and plan. Additionally, we provide specialized counseling so that each patient understands that he or she is not just another procedure off an assembly line, but rather a valued member of our Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates family.
