Dr. Robert J. DeFatta 

OWNER & MEDICAL DIRECTOR

With so many different types of aesthetic providers in practice today, it is important to make an informed decision when considering an elective procedure. Physicians and surgeons who are cosmetic experts specifically in the areas of the face and neck are called facial plastic surgeons. This highly sought-after specialty requires 13 years of higher education to achieve the ultimate expertise in the complex anatomy, function, and aesthetic of the face and neck. These physicians are trained in and routinely perform both non-invasive and surgical procedures for facial rejuvenation.  They are board-certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS). For more than 30 years, the ABFPRS has been actively dedicated to improving the quality of facial plastic procedures available to the public by measuring the qualifications of candidate surgeons against certain rigorous standards. 

Dr. Robert J. DeFatta is dual board-certified, both by the ABFPRS and the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. His extensive training, credentials, and experience reflect his commitment to meeting the highest standards of clinical care for his patients. He has dedicated his entire career to the treatment of disorders and cosmetic concerns of the face, head, and neck, and his scope of practice includes injectable treatments of a variety of cosmetic concerns from the neck up.
