My mission in the field of plastic surgery is simple. I want to help people be happy. I wake up every day and ask myself, “How can we be better?” For over 20 years in practice, I have consistently strived to deliver and continuously improve the most technically advanced, effective and highest quality and surgical services in a friendly, caring and compassionate environment.

In today’s fitness-oriented and social media driven society, people are increasingly concerned about body image. I understand how one’s outward appearance affects the way they feel and I am very sensitive to my patient’s feelings. Listening carefully and respectfully to each patient to create a unique individualized care plan that meets or exceeds the patients’ needs and expectations is my goal.

There should be nothing mysterious about plastic surgery. We are in the information age, which is good and bad. There is so much information out there that the average person can be easily confused. My style of patient contact is direct, honest and personal. I am here to help you make an informed decision and fully understand the pros and cons associated with surgery or other aesthetic treatments you may be considering.

I am board certified by the American Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. I am very proud of this achievement. It took many years of extensive training and experience to qualify for this honor, and I work very hard to exceed their high standards every day.

Advanced Plastic Surgery is a fully accredited surgery center that undergoes checks and evaluations to insure the highest level of patient safety. I continue to strive to create and sustain an organization based on personal trustworthiness, openness and integrity where people work in teams that show mutual support, trust, and respect to our patients.

I care not only about the changes I make in your appearance, but also how you continue to feel. Thus, a bond is formed with many of my patients. It’s not uncommon for a patient to refer to me by my nickname, Dr. Sal. I wear that title with honor, because it represents a success in my journey to make people happy.
