Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Capone Jr "I believe plastic surgery should be personal, private, and should involve minimal risk. By sorting through the mire of new and old plastic surgery technologies, I select the procedure for each patient that contributes safely and cost-effectively to his or her particular needs and desires. Through my plastic surgery, I strive to enhance my patients? self-confidence and, ultimately, the quality of their lives. Studies have linked good looks achieved through plastic surgery to successful interpersonal relationships and economic success.? -Raymond A. Capone, M.D."

I could not be happier with my results. The entire process, the doctor and staff, and the overall experience were excellent. Dr. Capone listened to my questions and concerns and spent as much time as I needed to feel comfortable with my decisions. I would definitely recommend and use again!
