Each patient is carefully evaluated taking into account their unique facial features, and a treatment plan is designed together with the patient to enhance the patient’s natural beauty.

Dr. Lafer’s subspecialty training in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery gives her a distinct expertise of the anatomy of the face and neck and understanding of the complexities of how the face and neck ages.
