Practice Philosophy

Bringing more than 30 years of surgical training and experience into his Sarasota practice, Dr. John Strausser is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.   He understands that choosing to have cosmetic surgery is a highly personal decision – one that should be made with great care and consideration. With this in mind, he has created an office where individualized attention and communication combine to provide the very best environment for cosmetic surgery. As Dr. Strausser explains, "Honest communication with our patients is the key to realistic expectations and ultimate satisfaction." Alongside Dr. Strausser, his staff offers each patient a high level of personal care, attention and service. As a team, they offer education and information on the many aesthetic surgery options available, and guide patients to the procedures that are truly right for them.  In general, a patient will spend about an hour speaking directly with Dr. Strausser at the time of their first appointment. Dr. Strausser and his staff treat a wide spectrum of patients, male and female, young and not so young, and are dedicated to providing safe and comfortable surgical experiences for each and every one of them.  His in-office surgical facility, Aesthetic and Cosmetic Surgery of Sarasota, is one of the select facilities certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF), the premier certifying agency for plastic surgeons.  


Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery


During your consultation, Dr. Strausser will define your surgical and non-surgical options, including the alternatives, risks, and limitations. He will clearly outline what the proposed alternatives can and can not do for you.   Dr. Strausser will thoroughly explain your recovery process and answer all your questions fully. 

At your consultation in our office, your time is spent with either Dr. Strausser or a staff member; we do not believe in the policy some offices have established where you are made to watch a generic video regarding the surgery you have expressed interest in.  Your time is too valuable and your needs are too individual.  Dr. Strausser will personally detail all the information required so that you can make an informed decision.


Aesthetic and Cosmetic Surgery of Sarasota, our in-office Plastic Surgery Suite, has up-to-date equipment and is staffed by trained professionals under Dr. Strausser’s direction. It is one of the few certified and approved by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF), having achieved this certification in 1989. 

A full discussion of the surgical and facility alternatives will be made during the planning stages of your procedure. 

Dr. Strausser’s fee for cosmetic surgery performed in our facility includes the costs associated with the use of our office surgical suite and anesthesia.  There are no additional costs to you for these services.
