About Dr. Perry

My approach involves applying the principles of perfect proportions (phi) to help you achieve your aesthetic and reconstructive goals. Equally important is keeping you looking natural and encouraging a healthy body weight. I strongly believe that the human body comes in many different shapes and sizes and these can all be beautiful.

As a female plastic surgeon, my goals are to help you achieve your functional and aesthetic goals while ensuring your safety, health and well being. I provide my patients with a personalized approach and am always easily accessible to them.
