Meet the Staff

From enhancing breasts and erasing the fine lines of aging, to face lifts and body contouring surgery, we offer a full range of surgical and laser procedures. But the heart of our practice is the personal care and support we provide to our patients. We support you wholeheartedly as you pursue your personal aesthetic goals. Dr. Whetstone is a talented, experienced and caring plastic surgeon.
