Our CenterM_Pletsch_facility

At Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Medical Center of Monterey Bay, we offer you a comfortable and relaxed setting with state-of-the-art technology in cosmetic surgery and non-surgical enhancement. It is our desire that you leave our practice feeling more confident and knowledgeable about cosmetic surgery and the benefits that it can provide to improve your quality of life!

Please ask us any questions you may have regarding a specific procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Pletsch will thoroughly discuss both external enhancements and internal structural corrections that may be of benefit to you.

Dr. Pletsch also uses computerized facial imaging and color photography to evaluate your attributes so that you and she jointly decide on the most beneficial treatment. This is helpful in planning your surgical procedures, and the photos become a part of a "before" and "after" comparison. We encourage Monterey26596-3you to ask questions during your consultation to ensure you have explored all avenues before a final decision is made.

As you consider surgery, one of the most important decisions you and your surgeon will make is the choice of a surgery center or a hospital. We are able to offer a variety of facilities that provide the highest quality medical care at a variety of comforts and prices.
