From the moment you meet Dr. Pacella, you will realize why he is your Plastic Surgeon of choice. In our healthcare world overrun by electronics, automated phones and computer readouts, it is rare today to have an opportunity to sit and talk with your doctor in a comfortable setting. It is a privilege to be able to care for patients, and this philosophy influences everything Dr. Pacella believes and practices.
Having trained at some of the country’s leading institutions, Dr. Pacella has utilized his talents and experience to create a singular philosophy for Plastic Surgery: Cosmetic Surgery and Reconstructive Surgery go hand-in-hand.
To Dr. Pacella, every anatomic body part, be it the face, eyes, breast or body, has a unique function that cannot be separated from its aesthetic appearance. If you have been injured, suffered from cancer or disease, or simply do not like the appearance of aging, your anatomy must not only be restored to a natural and youthful appearance, but it must function as nature intended. To Dr. Pacella, this is the secret to success in Plastic Surgery. Plastic Surgery is Reconstruction. Plastic Surgery is Cosmetic Improvement. It is one.
