Welcome to Authentic Plastic Surgery

Unlike at many practices, patients don’t have to weave their way through administrative red tape in order to consult with Dr. Stachowicz. This allows for low overhead costs that can provide better than regional prices with a better patient experience than other practices. Instead, patients bypass the front office and talk directly to him, calling him to ask questions and seek advice prior to surgery and during recovery.

What’s more, before beginning any surgery, he takes as much time as necessary to learn about the patient, explain their surgical options, and recommend a course of action, whether that be minimally invasive Botox injections or a skin-tightening neck lift. And, afterward, Dr. Stachowicz stays in close contact with his clients to ensure they’re healing and feeling confident about their results.

Announcements and Updates

Safety First- updated 7/21/20
Currently major hospitals
for limited scheduling of elective/cosmetic surgeries. Please see below.

What IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO? I would urge all of you to please text me to initiate a Virtual Consult process – we start with a phone call. Then we figure out what materials are needed (like photos) and start planning. In person visit will occur closer to surgery when I can assure that You are the only person in the office.
Some offices may push the “boundary” but that would be simply irresponsible and unsafe.


Quarantine Special

Complete VIRTUAL CONSULTATION and pay 250$ deposit to save place on first come first serve basis (non refundable).
IN RETURN – SAVE 500$ of the total cost of your surgery once it is scheduled (saves 250$ overall).
For surgeries where original quote is or exceeds 7500$, another 250$ (refundable) prepayment can be used for additional discount of 500$ at time of surgery (if 2 x 250$ is pre paid, then 500$ is saved overall).
EXAMPLE: Surgery costing normally 10,000$ (already couple thousands less than average in the area) can be later performed for 9750$ or 9500$ with this offer.
(* Whenever price is mentioned on this web site, it is the “total cost”, i.e: hospital+anesthesia+surgeon fees+consult+all follow-up care)
(At this unusual time, I am offering several options for consultation while respecting scientifically based  “contact” restrictions).


My Practice Philosophy

Have you ever thought:     “It would be so much better if I could just communicate directly with my doctor …” ?
If the answer is “Yes” then you arrived to the right place.
There is no gimmicks. My practice has been transformed in 2012  from “the usual” to truly patient oriented.
Reality is that plastic surgery practices waste expenses on excessive office, private surgery space, multiple assistants and flamboyant advertising. Higher overhead costs have palpable effects on patients. Simply put, patients have to pay for all of that by having impossibly short consults, more pressure to perform “extra” procedures, very limited acces to the actual doctor and higher prices. All of that has real consequences for patients quality of care and safety.

I will be most of all honest. I will not rush through the process because education is the priority. If we need more time then additional time will be found. It is perfectly OK to leave the consultation without a “sale”. We will talk later once the information has sunk in. I will not suggest an unnecessary surgery. I am happy to refer my future patients to former patients if they wish to discuss their concern on more personal level.

Finally, the “communication” is the key to good and safe outcome.
You can text me directly. Yes – it is that simple.
If needed – we talk on the phone when convenient. No more “answering service” or endless phone menus.


With combined experience of over years, we offer high quality results with increased focus on the individual.
