Dr. Koenig's Care Philosophy

Plastic surgery is not an easy fix or an isolated experience. I always encourage my patients to be actively involved in the entire process. The more involved patients are, the better the surgical outcome and the more satisfied they are with their results. Plastic surgery is a lifelong commitment and should be partnered with efforts to improve the quality of one's life. In addition to what I recommend surgically, I encourage patients to have healthy habits and good balance in their lives.

Great experience! Quatela Center is absolutely beautiful and welcoming. Dr. Keonig and staff are knowledgeable, kind and great at what they do. I could not be happier with my results and my experience with Dr. Koenig!
Rochester, NY |
Dr. Koenig is an excellent surgeon. However, I feel after having breast augmentation with two family members, Dr. Koenig and his staff do not spend enough time with each patient explaining the desired outcome. If this cannot be achieved, this needs to be explained before surgery and possibly use an alternative method to get the results the patient is looking for. A suggestion would be to bring in a 3D breast imaging simulator. The teeshirt method does not work.
