Meet Dr. Brown

Having been in the practice of Plastic Surgery and specifically Cosmetic Surgery, for over 27 years, Dr. Brown provides a full range of cosmetic surgery procedures in an accredited hospital using board-certified anesthesiologists. Dr. Brown has arranged “special rates” so patients can enjoy the safety of a hospital operating environment at the cost of an in-office surgery center.
Dr. Brown believes in thoroughly informing patients before surgery and complete honesty throughout the entire surgical experience. Successful cosmetic surgery results in the patient’s increased confidence and self-esteem and encourages a positive, healthier and happier lifestyle. We believe that education before, during and after your surgery is one of the keys to ensuring your satisfaction.
