Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It can be divided into two main categories, reconstructive surgery, and cosmetic surgery. A plastic surgeon’s primary responsibility is performing surgical and non-surgical procedures and they use a variety of reparative and reconstructive techniques to get the job done. 

“I strongly feel that plastic surgery, whether for cosmetic or for reconstruction purposes, is uniquely personal and requires great empathy toward a patient, as it affects both your body and your mind. Because of this paramount guiding principle, I feel it is essential for you to take as much time as you need to express yourself, so that I can carefully evaluate and understand your concerns to answer your questions and to gain an in-depth appreciation of your unique beauty and health goals.” as stated by Dr. Valauri.
