      Dr. Thomas says...

      Our office is committed to quality service, attention to detail, and patient satisfaction that ensures you have an unsurpassed experience with exceptional results.

      Focusing only on plastic and reconstructive surgery of the head and neck, I place great importance on research to develop and adopt the latest techniques and procedures in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.  This is reflected in my publications, which number more than 200 papers and many textbooks.

      As a patient, your needs are our first priority.  That's why our surgical goals and techniques are designed to address your specific needs.  Working with you, we'll develop a customized plan for your treatment, releasing your unique beauty. Our professional team follows up to ensure that you achieve your goals while maintaining a natural appearance, supplementing surgical treatments with advanced skin care treatment and skin care products.

      To help you make the best, most informed decision for your needs, we have included a range of information about the primary procedures we perform:

      • Rhinoplasty (cosmetic surgery of the nose)
      • Blepharoplasty (cosmetic surgery of the eyelids)
      • Facelift (Dr. Thomas's Safety Facelift)

      We also perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures of the face, head, and neck. We encourage you to look at my profile and website whenever you have an interest or concern – and, of course, to contact us with any questions or if you need additional information.
