An ancient proverb from China states: "One picture is worth ten thousand words." What better way to illustrate the transformations that result from plastic surgical procedures than through our Before and After Gallery? Whether for corrective or purely aesthetic purposes, plastic surgery (often called cosmetic surgery) is always a life-changing step in terms of its tremendous emotional and physical impact. If you are considering a certain procedure, please take the time to review some of our Before and After pictures. Keep in mind that the "after" pictures are taken after various points in time following surgery (see comments with each example).
