- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

I have had multiple surgeries from this doctor. Every visit we would discuss the plan of treatment. He does not listen very well and does not take notes. He does not mark the surgical site prior to surgery every single time. after multiple surgeries , the problems have not resolved and some have gotten worse. I had to see another plastic surgeon to repair the damages that he did.
I had taken my African born daughter to 4 plastic surgeons, 3 of whom did not want to remove the nickel sized raised birthmark on the bridge of her nose due to fear of severe scarring. We even went to a well-known doctor who had worked on Michael Jackson and were told it would take 3 years of procedures (out of town and expensive). Dr Garcia took care of it in two quick office visits. She looks beautiful with only a hairline scar, not noticeable at all.
I had a breast augmentation here 2 years ago and I am the extremely satisfied with my results! On top of being so pleased Dr. Garcia even charges 25% less then most plastic surgeons. I traveled from New York and it was worth the 90 minute drive. I would definitely go back if I needed another procedure. You won't be disappointed and it feels so good not to worry about such a huge life decision.
Although Dr. Garcia did not do surgery on me his consultation and advice after I suffered severe complications following double mastectomy and Breast reconstruction badly done by another Erie Plastic Surgeon was right on . He treated me with genuine compassion and concern and was honest enough to admit that it was unlikely that the damage already done could be reversed with further surgery. After my Cancer diagnosis I was extremely vulnerable and easily could have been misled like I was by my original surgeon
