Dr. Peters’ Philosophy
“I strive to provide caring, compassionate, and top quality care to all patients. As a woman and female plastic surgeon, however, I have a unique perspective to offer female patients as I better understand the concerns, insecurities, and goals women have when considering plastic surgery.
“During our first visit, I will begin by listening to what you hope to accomplish with surgery. Once I understand your goals and perform an examination, I will help you understand what can be done with your body to achieve these goals and provide the information you need to make an informed decision.
“My goal as your surgeon is to provide the best possible care to help you to look and feel your best. I look forward to meeting with you and exceeding your expectations.”
