“The difference between what’s beautiful and what’s ugly is measured in millimeters” - Allan E. Wulc, M.D.
W Cosmetic Surgery, P.C. is an aesthetic practice devoted to the improvement of appearance. Our practice is at the forefront in the evolution of all the latest procedures, and we have more than two decades of experience to know what is a fad and what really works.. We use noninvasive techniques, such as fillers and Botox, to artfully produce dramatic changes without surgery. When surgery is requested, it is performed under local anesthesia, greatly decreasing recovery time. We educate our patients before surgery to ensure optimal recovery times, and utilize many unique methods to improve healing and minimize downtime. Cosmetic surgery is about achieving an ideal. It is about finding the beauty that is there, enhancing it, or, if it’s not there, creating it. They don’t teach you artistry in medical school, in residency, or in any other training program. You learn the techniques to peform an operationt in training, but that’s it. Artistic vision is not something that can be taught. You either have “it”, or you don’t.
