Surgical Procedures

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty dedicated to the reconstruction of facial and body defects due to birth disorders, trauma, burns, and disease. The art and science of plastic surgery also involves the enhancement of a person’s appearance through such operations as facelift, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, and liposuction.

Dr. Maurice and Dr. Carlisle will work with you to create an individualized surgery and plan of care to best meet your needs.
