Practice Philosophy

DOCTOR KAPLAN’S PHILOSOPHY
My practice is based on satisfied patients. Meeting your objectives and personal satisfaction is the result of the sum of sensitivity, science, surgical skill and safety.

SENSITIVITY (UNDERSTANDING and CARING ABOUT THE PATIENT)
I am committed to treating each patient with the consideration and sensitivity that I would for my own family. I carefully consult with each patient in order to understand his/her unique surgical objectives, aesthetic preferences and emotional needs.

SCIENCE (SCIENTIFIC PRINCIPLES and TRAINING)
There are many different surgical procedures that are available to treat each problem. Furthermore there are new techniques that are frequently being introduced. It takes experience and sound scientific background to choose the appropriate procedure. I take time and effort and use my experience and judgment to choose the best surgery for your specific problem.

SURGICAL SKILL (ARTISTIC APPRECIATION and TECHNICAL PRECISION)
The success of plastic surgery begins with understanding the aesthetics of facial harmony and of a natural appearance. With this vision of the artistic endpoint, I use technical precision to achieve the best possible result.

SAFETY (OPTIMAL CONDITIONS)
“Primum non nocere” – “never do harm” is my underlying philosophy.

Surgical safety is achieved from familiarity with anatomy and maintaining technical precision. I take every precaution to avoid problems by evaluating your health, performing surgery under optimal circumstances including state-of-the-art surgical center and with the assistance of skilled anesthesia.
