I consider it a privilege to be a plastic surgeon. At its essence, plastic surgery is a specialty designed to improve quality of life. It’s very fulfilling to give my patients a new outlook on life. I am very careful to listen to my patients and make sure that I clearly understand their expectations and use that information to determine who is a good candidate for plastic surgery. I specialize in creating a very natural, highly individualized result for my patients. I feel strongly that a “cookie-cutter” approach to surgery is not what highlights a person’s assets to their best potential. Therefore, each surgery I perform, whether it is a complete facelift or a breast augmentation, is done with careful thought and consideration to highlighting that person’s existing features so that his or her result is beautiful, natural and highly individualized. Knowledge is power and elective surgery should be carefully considered. Rest assured that I strive to provide superior, compassionate care. My goal is to do all that I can to ensure that the surgery you are considering is a good option for you. While I may not offer every quick fix, understand that this is indicative of my scrutinizing, conservative approach. Quite simply, I want your results to be beautiful and provide lasting benefit.
It is frequently said that people make the place and Dr. Hobar is proud to say that his staff validates that principle. Our Staff adheres to the fundamental truth that our patient’s safety is our top priority. We work together as a team and truly enjoy spending time with our patients and guiding them through the plastic surgery process. Our team is always a phone call away with any questions or concerns that our patients may have.
