Much has changed in Charlotte over the past seven decades. But here’s one aspect that’s remained consistent: Charlotte Plastic Surgery’s dedication to patients in this community. Founded in 1951 as the city’s first plastic surgery practice, Charlotte Plastic Surgery has a mission to “renew the quality of life and increase the confidence of our patients through restoration, preservation, and enhancement of physical form and function.”
That means not only a focus on technical excellence, but also on customer service. The practice’s staff has undergone Ritz-Carlton training to provide patients with first-class hospitality and personalized attention. And as a whole, the practice, certified by the prestigious American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities, follows stringent standards in all of its operations.
