Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Press "Cosmetic surgery is different from other surgical procedures and must be approached in a different manner to avoid harming the patient. This is the surgery of happiness. The only reason to undergo cosmetic procedures is to be happy. Thus, I believe it is absolutely essential that you learn about your available options and their risks and potential benefits, and you become comfortable with both me and the selected procedure. I want to make you happy!"
