At The Aesthetic Center we recognize that we and our patients are fortunate to enjoy the many benefits of plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine. That’s why we feel it’s so important to give back to our communities and you can be assured that some of the funds you may spend at the Aesthetic Center are given to the less fortunate and those in need.
