Form & Function
Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery
Dr. Susan Downey offers her patients a superior experience in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, with the ultimate goal of restoring body form and function. When patients come into the office our first job is to obtain and provide information. There is no one approach to any problem in plastic surgery and each patient presents their own unique set of problems and concerns. Each patient's situation is addressed and a plan for each patient is individually devised.
Whenever possible, written information is provided to help the patient prepare for the surgery as well as to plan for the postoperative period. When it is needed, our team works closely with other specialists in order to provide the best functional and reconstructive restoration. Dr. Downey offers a full range of plastic and reconstructive procedures, including cosmetic surgery, which in some cases, can be performed at the same time as reconstructive procedures.
