Plastic Surgery Specialties

While Dr. Diaz is highly trained and experienced in a wide range of plastic surgery procedures, his specialties include:

Treating the Whole

When chosen for the right reasons, plastic surgery can not only improve your appearance, it can enhance your outlook and self-esteem, and inspire you to continue a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Diaz understands this and considers both the physical and the emotional components of your procedure. Instead of simply focusing on the face, breasts, or body, he takes the time to get to know each patient as a whole person in order to understand their true motivations for considering plastic surgery. Dr. Diaz’s warm and engaging personality makes it easy for patients to open up and share their desires and insecurities. This open dialogue leads to a highly customized treatment plan and a very personalized level of care.

Through a holistic treatment approach that begins before surgery and continues for months or years afterward, Dr. Diaz is dedicated to helping his patients achieve complete well-being. In addition to providing beautiful and natural-looking results, he also offers lifestyle guidance that includes coaching in diet, exercise, and sun protection.

The Little Things

A soft cloth gown to help you feel at home and comfortable. A reassuring phone call the night before your surgery. For some patients, arranging for a nurse to drop by and check on you at home after your surgery. You might expect these caring acts from a friend or family member, but your plastic surgeon? You can with Dr. Diaz. The attention to detail and warm gestures from both him and his staff can mean the difference between a good experience and a truly great one.
