Dr. Abrams – Plastic Surgeon
“In order to provide service for you that will meet our high standards of the Ultimate Art Form we first must understand what your needs and your goals are. This begins with an honest and open discussion in a friendly environment. Then we will discuss with you what can and cannot be achieved. Once we are certain that your expectations are realistic, we have a clear understanding of the goals we are jointly trying to achieve, and we are confident that we can help you, then we arrange for your surgery to be scheduled. In our practice everyone is treated like a member of our extended family and our service can be summarized in: compassion, honesty, and state of the art technology. Most importantly our operations should be natural looking, avoiding the typical surgical look. Once we are certain that we have gained your trust and you believe that we are able to meet these goals, then and only then will we embark upon surgery.”
