Our board certified doctors are well respected in their fields and their results speak for themselves.  If you are considering plastic surgery, and live in a major metropolitan city such as New York, Beverly Hills/ Los Angeles, or Chicago, you might want to consider consulting virtually with our providers so that you can price out round trip airfare, hotel accommodations for a week, and our fees.  You will likely find that with no decrease in the quality of your result, you will spend considerably less.

Many patients have traveled to see us even for minor procedures, such as injectables.  Dr. Velargo frequently has out of town patients travel for his liquid rhinoplasty procedure
