Plastic Surgery: An Introduction

Plastic Surgery is a medical specialty that seeks to heal and restore patients with injury or disfigurement as well as aesthetic correction of facial and body features. The word "plastic" derives from the Greek word "plastikos" meaning "shape" or "form."

As with any surgery, a very important factor in the success of aesthetic surgery is the surgeon you select. That is why you need to know about the training and experience of your of your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Dr. Dennis Barek has been in private practice since 1975.


Initial Visit, Evaluation and Appointments

An initial consultation and evaluation with Dr. Barek must be scheduled. He will ensure that you are comfortable with your decision and that all of your questions have been answered. During this time, you and he will discuss in detail the recommended procedure and what results are to be expected. Cosmetic surgery should be approached with realistic expectations. The results of any procedure are dependent upon your health, your age, and the way your body heals. Your healing progress will be monitored and will require follow-up visits after surgery.

An Atmosphere of Care and Respect

One of our primary concerns will be to make you comfortable in our office. The Barek Plastic Surgery Facility is committed to the total needs of our patients. One of our coordinators is always available to help you with arrangements for the many services that are available at the Facility. Surgery is performed in our state of the art office operating room. We will make every attempt to honor your trust by providing the quality of plastic surgery care you require and deserve.

Continuing Medical Education

"Dr.Barek attends many annual meetings, symposia and hands-on workshops to stay on top of new developments in the field. He also visits and hosts other well known plastic surgeons in order to exchange knowledge on a more personal basis.Not all new techniques or instrumentation is as good as they claim to be. Good judgement and evaluation of clinical material help decide what advances are real advances which are marketing gimmicks."
