Meet the Staff

The Institute of Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery team

Dr. Thomas T. Nguyen founded the Institute of Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery with the goal of improving lives through excellence in aesthetic medicine. Every member of our staff is skilled and experienced in his or her specific niche, because providing the best that plastic surgery has to offer is a team effort. We take great pride in the delighted responses and lovely compliments that we receive from our patients, and we look forward to exceeding your expectations.

Plastic surgery involves much more than medical expertise. It also requires artistic talent, and a deep understanding of facial and body aesthetics. Perhaps most importantly, the surgeon needs to recognize, appreciate, preserve, and accentuate each person's uniqueness and natural beauty. Asian patients do not want to look western, male patients do not want to look feminine, and female patients do not want to look like each other. There is no single definition of beauty, and plastic surgery should not make everyone look alike; it should transform each person into the most beautiful manifestation of themselves. Dr. Nguyen carefully selected his team members, choosing only those who share his passion and philosophy of patient care.
