Please take time to read a letter from Dr. Michael J. Columbus on his upcoming retirement.



“Having a close, personal working relationship with each patient is important to understanding the very specific needs and concerns of each patient. I understand how important it is to listen to patients and help them determine the right surgical and non-surgical options available to them. Providing my patients with the most comprehensive information available about plastic surgery procedures and services is key to making educated decisions. I strongly believe that understanding the risk associated with surgery and setting realistic expectations is important to a good result. I look forward to meeting you and would consider it a personal honor to be chosen as your plastic surgeon.”
