When I completed my residency in 1987 as chief resident of plastic surgery at the University of Missouri in Columbia, physicians connected directly with patients and the community through the mailbox. And I’m talking about the one that sits on a post at the side of the road, not the one that sits on your computer or smartphone.
Now, more than 25 years and thousands of surgical procedures later, I can use this blog to keep you up to date on the latest developments in the field of plastic surgery and special offers available at my practice.
Plastic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic enhancements saw similar advances in the past quarter-century. My practice remained at the forefront of that progress, and I offer patients the latest technology that is safe and effective. Experience has taught me, though, that new doesn’t always equal better. Tried-and-true techniques often achieve more pleasing results than an approach that’s more of a novelty.
I enjoy medicine and plastic surgery because we continue to push forward. It’s important, however, to find a physician with the qualifications and experience to know whether the latest is actually the greatest. I hope you’ll check back here from time to time to learn more about our practice.
