Why does Dr. Gutowski Offer this Website for Patients?
“My goal is to offer all those considering aesthetic or reconstructive plastic surgery, including cosmetic procedures, to have a source of information that is regularly updated and patient friendly. Many of the posts on this site will be based on the most recent medical studies and recommendations, but I will also include trends and noteworthy news events that you may find useful. I believe that information can offer patients more options, a deeper understanding of their treatments and lead to better care when provided by Board Certified plastic surgeons.”
