Dr Johnson’s Perspective on Plastic Surgery
Early in my training as a graduate student, I studied facial growth and development in children with birth defects such as cleft lip and palate. I saw firsthand the balance and beauty in facial shape and witnessed the power of plastic surgery to transform a patient’s life. These experiences taught me that plastic surgery could provide some of the greatest gifts on earth and I wanted to be a part of it.
People generally find it hard to appreciate how life altering aesthetic surgery can be, and just how important. A person’s motivation to undergo a cosmetic procedure is much more than vanity; it touches who they are. What people look like, not just to others but also to themselves is an important part of their personal identity.
The personal philosophy that guides my practice is quite simple. We must always strive to do what is right for our patient, remaining committed to doing our best. We must never lose the compassion and integrity needed to see our patient as a whole person, and to recognize the best outcome as one that is right for their individual needs.
The increasing publicity surrounding cosmetic plastic surgery has created a greater awareness of this potentially tremendous benefit to life. Yet, this media attention can also blur the realities. Cosmetic surgery involves serious decisions and a clear perception of just what a particular procedure will accomplish. To that end my goal is to educate and inform our patients so that they can confidently participate in the decision making process.
As you explore this website you will find a broad spectrum of cosmetic procedures and approaches available today. In my practice I don’t dogmatically follow any particular technique or trend. My practice focuses on patients rather than procedures. Years of experience have given me a perspective through which to view my patient’s needs and all available ideas for treatment. This website is a first step to help you gain perspective on what may be one of the most important decisions you ever make.
