Texas Panhandle’s Experienced Plastic Surgeon
Experienced plastic surgeons like Dr. Rouzbeh Kordestani(MD/MPH) and Dr. Dominic Heffel (MD/FACS) are difficult to come by. Not all cosmetic surgeons are plastic surgeons. Cosmetic surgery is elective, while plastic surgery can address issues of reconstruction that are more involved. Our practice areas include both approaches and are customized based on the needs of the patient.
For a practice to be a success, there must be an inherent trust between the physician and the patient. The patient has to relay to the physician his/her fears, wants, needs and concerns. In similar fashion, the physician has to be as clear, honest, and forthcoming with the patient as possible. When a successful relationship has been established, the physician and the patient share a unique rapport where they can discuss issues and concerns like friends, arriving at the best solution for the care of the patient.
- Our practice philosophy is simple: to offer the patient an honest, valued, and educated opinion, and to give them the best, most up-to-date care—both before and after surgery.
- Our purpose is to make every patient happy with their experience prior to, during, and after their association with us.
- Our motto? “Plastic Makes Perfect.”
- Our goal is to be the best possible plastic and reconstructive surgery practice in the state.
