At Pinnacle, listening is how we create excellence in aesthetic and plastic surgery procedures. Gaining your confidence is our goal so we spend time at your consultation getting to know you – your wants, needs, lifestyle and concerns about your body. While exploring options together, we make sure you’re a good candidate for any requested or recommended procedure. And we won’t push you to do more than is necessary to achieve your goals. You’ll leave your consultation with a co-created treatment plan that's as individual as you.
Whether you’re considering reconstructive surgery or a procedure to enhance your appearance and natural beauty, we work with you every step of the way. Choose from our wide array of plastics procedures for the face, breast or body.
