Garth Fisher MD takes pride in personally performing all surgical procedures. He does not allow "residents", "fellows", or other doctors to perform your surgery. In the rare instance that an "assistant surgeon" will be appropriate, this will be discussed with you well in advance.
From Dr. Fisher:
The artistic creation of a natural and beautiful facelift is one of my most satisfying and gratifying realizations. This wonderful patient came to me looking a bit weary, as you can see from the photograph below. She said she actually felt much more energetic and full of life than she looked!
Before planning a surgical procedure
I initially review a woman’s aesthetic “facial frame.” The facial frame is comprised of many subtle, but also very important aspects of beauty, such as skin quality, hair color and style, as well as eyebrow color and density. I utilize a comprehensive facial analysis to map out effective treatment plans, which may include appropriate skin care products, injectables and laser treatments. During this initial consultation, the patient is given the opportunity to get to know my staff and me. They can also use this consultation to learn about effective and reliable ways to optimize their diet and exercise regimens to promote a healthier lifestyle.
My second step is the cosmetic surgical planning. Similar to an architect who first “conceptualizes” a structure, I prepare a detailed and customized plan based on the unique needs, tissue quality, and anatomical features of the patient. I evaluate the many curves, angles and contours of facial features which include size, relationships and proportions. Only after this detailed planning, do I use my creative design, and my eyes and hands to sculpt a more youthful, beautiful, and very natural face.
We are all trained as technically competent specialists; however, I have been fortunate to have mastered the gift of creative artistry from world renowned plastic surgeons: Dr. Steven Hoefflin, Dr. Bruce Connell and Dr. John Williams. These surgeons are universally regarded as the pre-eminent plastic surgeons in the field and have trained me to expand my capabilities beyond mere technical aspects so that I can incorporate aesthetic artistry into my procedures. During 20 years of surgical experience, I have taken care of some of the most recognized faces in the world, and I take pride in providing the highest quality of care with excellent results.
My first priority has always been patient safety. Together with my anesthesiologist and operating room staff, I have created a consistently safe, pain free and comfortable environment for our patients before, during and after surgery.
