Dr. Hilger's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hilger "Greetings, I specialize in cosmetic and reconstructive facial plastic surgery"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hilger "In times of expanding knowledge and proliferation of techniques based on evolving technologies, subspecialization in medicine has enhanced patients' lives. This is equally true in facial plastic surgery where we have been leaders for over 30 years. In our focused practice we are committed to a partnership of care. Essential elements of this partnership include a comprehensive consultation that provides an in depth evaluation of aesthetic and reconstructive concerns and "down to earth" education that facilitate patient understanding of the wide spectrum of options available including minimally invasive interventions as well as standard proven techniques.

Our ultimate goal is to provide flattering enhancements for patients that appear natural and harmonious with other attractive facial features. Each patient's care will occur in a superbly competent, warm and comforting environment."

I can't say enough great things about Dr. Hilger and his amazing work. I had nasal reconstruction with rib grafting in June 2017, and results are even greater than expected. As a nurse in the OR myself, I know that not all surgeons have the same skill level, and I wouldn't hesitate to refer...more

Dr. Hilger has performed two nose surgeries on me, 17 years apart. Both surgeries were perfection. I broke my nose a number of times in the 17 years between surgeries in athletics and the second surgery was extremely complicated. I would not have trusted anyone else to touch my nose. The work...more
