While most elite academic surgeons of his rank and status rarely if ever see patients, Dr Dufresne enjoys giving each patient his undivided personal attention and offering them a broad variety of plastic surgery procedures appropriate to their individual needs and preferences.

If you are feeling like you look tired, older than you feel, or are bothered by your appearance in some way, cosmetic surgery can potentially help you achieve a new, natural look that is in harmony with how you feel about yourself. While facelifts, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, and liposuction have all been popular procedures for many years, potential patients now have the benefit of newer techniques, technologies, and procedures that in the experienced, caring, and capable hands of Dr Dufresne can provide better results than ever, often with shorter recovery periods than in the past. Many cosmetic surgeries can even be done as outpatient plastic surgery procedures without general anesthesia.

If you have experienced an accident that left visible or functional injuries, a cancer surgery that left you feeling mutilated, or been born with a cleft lip or other birth defect, you are not alone! Millions of people worldwide and in the US suffer from disfigurement and functional problems that can be helped by reconstructive surgery. Reconstructive surgery is the area of plastic surgery concerned with creating a more normal appearance; whereas, cosmetic surgery is concerned with reducing signs of aging or enhancing a normal body. Reconstructive surgery is done for two major reasons: correction of birth defects or repair following burns and trauma. Trauma can mean many things, including reconstruction following cancer surgery, most commonly breast cancer. Surgical treatment of skin cancer is also included under reconstructive surgery. Innovative techniques and procedures, many developed or pioneered by Dr Dufresne, offer hope to many potential patients for whom little could have been done in even the recent past.

Is your face or hands showing signs of aging that don’t match how you feel on the inside? Are you ready for a refreshed look but maybe not ready to consider surgery? Or maybe you’ve had surgery but want a touch-up? Cosmetic injectables in the safe and skillful hands of Dr Dufresne could be the answer for you!

Is your skin feeling dull or uneven? Do you have age spots or other mild cosmetic blemishes? Our medical aesthetician can help you look and feel your best!

With Dr Dufresne’s specially curated line of products, many only available from selected physicians’ offices, you have many excellent choices from which to make your selection with guidance from Dr Dufresne and his medical aesthetician.
