Care Philosophy

The purpose of cosmetic surgery is to turn back the clock; eliminating or reducing the effects of time & occasionally to enhance features beyond what may have been present to begin with. A well-executed facelift, for example, doesn't elicit comments that compliment me or the procedure; rather, the goal is for people to notice a newness, a freshness but without the ability to put their finger on what leads them to notice this change. I want people to look at you and think that you look great. Is it the hair, is it a vacation or a new sense of energy and optimism? I am not looking for, "wow, what a nice facelift." The goal is not to have you look like someone else but rather to look like yourself without the effects of aging. In the case of a chin or cheek augmentation or nasal cosmetic surgery, these procedures can correct a deficit that was present before but in such a subtle way that it is hard to realize that anything was done without looking at side by side before & after pictures. When people speak & interact with you there is a movement of their focus revolving around your eyes & the nose. Facial recognition software that is in use to survey the crowds in New York utilizes digital image information from these areas because the features found there are most useful in identifying individuals of interest. Thus, any change made to the eyes, brows & nose are very subtle but very significant in the way others view you. One of my favorite procedures is the endoscopic browplasty. With tiny quarter inch incisions behind the hairline I can elevate the brows and open up the eyes in a very different way then just removing excess skin of the upper eyelid. The result makes you look more awake, rested & alert without the surprised look that causes concern. Once the brows are properly placed then addressing the extra skin of the upper and/or lower eyelids puts the polishing touch on the result.Read more

With a five star staff and a five star Dr. I have finally found the environment and professionals to tackle the aging process with a natural looking result. I couldn't be happier with my outcome and feel people are now looking at me and not my imperfections. It has altered the trajectory of my future and for this I am more confident and thankful for taking the "leap" into the gifted hands of Dr.Stevens and his talented support team. Thank you all, Mr. Blake.

Dr Stevens took the time to sit down and really listen to my issues and concerns. He didn't gloss over, talk over, or rush through my exam. He wasn't condescending and he put me at ease immediately and made me feel like he sincerely cared about the pain and frustration I'm experiencing. He put a plan into place. It's nice when you can tell care and compassion are art of who he is in his everyday world. Wish I had found him 3 Dr's sooner.

Dr. Stevens is professional, personable, and empathetic. I consulted him for balloon sinuplasty to relieve severe nasal congestion from allergies that caused daily sinus pressure headaches. He was open to doing the surgery and explained that it is typically done for chronic sinusitis, but that it could help someone with narrow nasal passages and pressure from allergies. I felt relief two weeks after the surgery and have not had a sinus pressure headaches. I recommend him without reservation.
