Why Choose Us?
Dr. Flugstad and his team have one mission: to take great care of you and give you a terrific outcome. Your goals become our own the minute you walk through our door. From cosmetic procedures aimed at achieving naturally beautiful results to reconstructive services focused on making you complete and whole again, your care and successful outcome are something we take personally every moment of every day. Here are some reasons why our practice is the best place to meet your goals:
Dr. Flugstad is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This means he has completed seven years of focused plastic surgery training after medical school, succeeded in written and oral examinations, and been held to the highest standards of any medical specialty. There is no other cosmetic board that is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. (For example, the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery is NOT the same and is not a recognized specialty board). This is an area of frequent confusion in the world of aesthetics.
Specialized Aesthetic Training and Research
Dr. Flugstad’s practice is focused on aesthetic surgery and breast reconstruction (which is also very aesthetic in nature). After six years of formal plastic surgery training, he accepted a fellowship with Dr. Joseph Hunstad, a world renowned aesthetic surgeon. Dr. Flugstad was able to dedicate this additional training to fine tuning his skills in the fields of breast, body, and facial cosmetic surgery. Dr. Flugstad’s fellowship was officially endorsed by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), widely considered the gold standard of aesthetics.
Dr. Flugstad’s research and publications have included the topics of face lifting, breast augmentation, body contouring, wound healing, and nerve repair. He has presented his research both nationally and internationally.
Certified Surgery Facility with MD Anesthesia
Our patients are like family and their safety means everything to us. Performing our surgery at a certified and accredited facility with MD Anesthesiologists (not CRNA nurses) allows the highest possible safety before, during, and after surgery. Overlake Surgery Center (OSC) is a state-of-the-art outpatient facility accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare (AAAHC) and also meets the stringent standards for Medicare certification. OSC has a first rate staff of dedicated physician anesthesiologists and registered nurses. We have a great rapport with OSC, and they are committed to delivering consistently top-quality care to our patients year after year.
You are unique, and so are your tastes, preferences, and aesthetic goals. This is why we treat every patient as a distinct individual. We listen carefully to what you want before designing your highly customized surgical plan.
Choosing to have surgery is a big decision. Our two primary concerns are your safety and your happiness. Before and during your procedure, we want you to feel comfortable and confident. Once your procedure is complete, we want you to feel like your best self.
We have a personal commitment to seeing you through your plastic surgery process from start to finish. We support you through your complete recovery to ensure that you have healed properly and that all of your after-care needs have been met. We are absolutely dedicated to integrity in our practice, and we want to build longstanding relationships with our patients. It is our pleasure to have you come to the office for years to come.
