Care Philosophy

The Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center is a complete plastic surgical facility inspired by Dr. Gahhos and designed by a prominent Florida architect. The surgery center was designed with patient comfort, safety and privacy in mind. The back door that opens to the side street along with the wall enclosing the center was designed for the discrete departure of patients who value their privacy. In the two operating rooms state-of art monitoring equipment, anesthesia monitors and electrocautery units surround the surgical tables. A wide variety of music from Mozart to Irish Folk is available per patient's request during the surgical procedure. The Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center is conveniently located on the Island of Venice in South Sarasota County adjacent to Venice Regional Medical Center, a 300-bed facility and just steps away from historic downtown Venice.

After three years, I am still smiling because Dr. Gahhos made such an extreme difference in my life. He was honest with me, and he did exactly what was needed. My heart goes out to him each time I look in a mirror and see his work. He was a fabulous doctor for me. Unfortunately, he no longer accepts my insurance, so I had to switch to another doctor, who proved to be a disappointment. My hope is that I can somehow return to Dr. Gahhos to correct what the other doctor did, or did not do.

What a terrific talented doctor! He exceeded my expectations in performing my face and neck lift. I wish that I could show you the before and after photos! My friend also had the same procedure plus more done and when I saw her results I was convinced that he was the right choice. He listened patiently to me and has a wonderful, approachable personality. His staff was caring as well. I heard that the beautiful office, located near the hospital in Venice, had a high ranking. Absolutely the best
