Dr. Hamilton’s Philosophy
Creating Modern, Timeless Beauty with Finesse
Every day, I seek to blend the artistic and the functional to achieve my patients’ aesthetic goals, so they can feel their most confident self. Each of my patients is unique in their own anatomy, dreams, and vision – and deserves a customized, state-of-the-art approach to aesthetic plastic surgery.
My philosophy towards plastic surgery is to provide the gold standard in cutting-edge plastic surgery techniques — where an aesthetic eye, precise attention to detail, and deep anatomic knowledge are combined with the most advanced technical skill and finest suturing techniques to achieve finesse, natural-looking results. The outcome of focusing on providing compassionate patient care and full respect for my patients’ goals is the creation of timeless, modern beauty.
Human beings have an innate desire to present their best selves to the world. In this light, my passion is delivering optimal definition, harmony, and balance to the face, breast, and body to transform my patients — beautifully, subtly, and artistically — into the very best version of themselves. In doing so, I achieve my ultimate goal, enabling my patients to embrace life to the fullest with strength and confidence.
