All-encompassing quality care is the cornerstone of my practice

“I am very thorough in discussing the specific goals for each patient to personalize a plan of care that will best accomplish the desired change” – Dr. Salibian

The decision to have plastic surgery is a very personal and important one and should be weighed carefully. A well qualified and experienced plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery is crucial in your choice of finding a plastic surgeon. Once that initial criteria is met in both the experience and qualifications, it is your personal comfort level and rapport that is established during your detailed consultations that would best guide you to the right plastic surgeon for you. It is normal to feel somewhat nervous during your initial consultation with questions and concerns about moving forward; however, you should always listen to your inner voice and trust your instincts. Your plastic surgeon of choice will be your trusted partner to help you accomplish your goals seamlessly with an aesthetic sensibility that best matches that of your own and will have your best interest at heart throughout the whole process and after. The quality of care and your safety is the cornerstone of my philosophy. I perform all procedures at fully accredited surgical facilities, utilizing the highest caliber board-certified anesthesiologists, nursing staff and post-surgical recovery centers.

As a plastic surgeon, I address the whole patient not simply the individual body parts. The change that one seeks needs to best enhance their unique characteristics within the parameters of safety and aesthetic proportions and appeal. The uniqueness of the field and specialty of plastic surgery is that it teaches its scholars the many different ways to accomplish and address a given problem or issue and that there might be many more viable ways than one to solve a specific problem. It is therefore, my belief that in spending that valuable time to learn about each patient and understand their sense of aesthetics and beauty that I can best serve my patients in the manner that meets their expectations and unique vision.

I have a deep respect for the creative and daring minds of the great forefathers of plastic and reconstructive surgery and an intense gratitude to all my instructors and mentors. Most importantly, however, I have a genuine and abiding appreciation of all of my patients who have helped me become the physician and surgeon that I am today. I respect the trust they have given me to care for the most personal and sensitive aspects of their lives and I am forever grateful for this opportunity. My patients often inspire me and I am humbled by their character, lives and accomplishments. It is a cherished privilege to be of service in this capacity .
