Meet The Staff
"The main focus of our practice is the complete satisfaction of all of our patients. Every effort is made to ensure that our patients make well-informed choices and achieve the best results possible, all within a comfortable and confidential setting."
Plastic surgery encompasses a broad spectrum of surgical procedures requiring knowledge, artistry, and surgical technique in order to correct or enhance one's appearance and achieve desired goals. It is Dr. Bershof's philosophy - one patient at a time - to listen to his patients, help patients define individual goals, provide excellent surgical care, and also provide the very important post-surgical care. He and his staff will be there for you, working diligently and thoughtfully to help you with such a personal decision as plastic surgery.
Although plastic surgery does cover that wide spectrum of procedures, as a plastic surgeon’s practice evolves, the scope of the practice usually becomes more specialized and narrowly defined. At the Plastic Surgery Group, Dr. Bershof who is a 5280 Top Doctor in both general plastic surgery and facial plastic surgery, is noted for his cosmetic plastic surgery within the head and neck, such as rhinoplasty, facelift, eyelid surgery and skin cancers, as well as known for breast augmentation and his medical spa skin care, Body by Design.
