Dr. Saulny’s goal is to make sure his patients appear natural and rejuvenated after surgery. He believes it is well worth the extra effort it takes to do his best to avoid leaving the tell-tale signs of conventional facial plastic surgery.
“I feel it is very important to have a thorough discussion with every patient about their goals and expectations prior to any surgical procedure,” Dr. Saulny states. He continues, “This applies not only to our cosmetic patients, but to the reconstructive patients as well. In general, my philosophy is never to make a patient ‘look’ as though they’ve had plastic surgery. My goal is to make patients appear natural and rejuvenated after surgery. I believe it is well worth the extra effort it takes to do my best to avoid leaving the tell-tale signs of conventional facial plastic surgery.”
