       State-of-the-Art Medical Facilities with a Spa Atmosphere of Serenity:


    We invite you to explore our site and meet Dr. Joseph Mlakar - better known (and generally addressed) as "Dr. Joe" - our Board- Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures.  Dr. Joe is a regional expert for a variety of plastic surgery procedures, including breast augmentation, breast lifts, tummy tucks, Vaser ultrasonic liposuction, face lifts and mini-lifts, eyelid surgeries, and cosmetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty surgery), as well as cleft surgery and breast reconstruction.  We invite you to view the 3D animated videos of various surgeries, and browse the Photo Gallery of our actual patients.  We genuinely hope that as you will discover more about our practice, and the many cosmetic enhancement procedures available to you, that you will become our "educated consumer", and serve as our ambassador to answer questions that your friends and family might have about plastic surgery and the services we can provide.

About Our Office

Deciding on plastic surgery is a very important decision, so it is critical that both the surgeon and supporting staff are talented and personable. This is what you will find with "Dr. Joe" and the staff at Plastic Surgery Innovations.

Plastic Surgery Innovations is dedicated to your patient satisfaction.  We offer all aspects of cosmetic surgery including: facial plastic surgery, aesthetic breast surgery, body contouring, skin treatments, Botox, and soft tissue fillers; as well as a wide range of reconstructive surgery including: breast reduction, breast reconstruction, birthmarks, craniofacial anomalies such as cleft lips or palates, skin cancer, melanoma, and trauma.


A standard of excellence in personalized care enables us to provide the quality services that our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and follow strict standards that ensure your surgery will go smoothly and provide the results you desire.  Our new 3D Vectra imaging allows patients to get a glimpse of the outcome that they might expect PRIOR to scheduling surgery. 


Dr. Joe has been performing cosmetic surgery for more than thirty years, and is Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.  As a practice, we are true believers that excellence in performing plastic surgery procedures is derived from both education and experience.  We strive to keep current on the latest techniques and technologies, such as Keller funnel breast implant insertion, and Vaser ultrasonic liposculpture, so we can provide our patients with the safest operations, and optimal results. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking your total health before performing any procedures. We also know that surgery is never routine, no matter how many hundreds of times we have performed such procedures.  We never take for granted that you have placed a great deal of confidence in us.  For this reason, a careful review of your medical history, your current health, your motivations, and your expectations are essential before we can agree on any any cosmetic procedure. 


Our in-office, private, surgical suite is nationally certified by the AAAASF.  Safety, sterilization and infection control is of utmost importance to us.  To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain national sterilization and safety standards to ensure you are protected at all times.


As your plastic surgery professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians.  We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep you smiling and healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning.   We attend plastic surgery lectures, meetings, and plastic surgery conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern plastic surgery practice can utilize to provide state-of-the-art cosmetic enhancement and reconstructive procedures. Progress is even in our name: We are Plastic Surgery INNOVATIONS  As members of professional plastic surgery associations, we stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success.  We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about having surgery, and how we can make a difference in providing a life changing and emotionally positive experience.  Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your consultation and surgery as comfortable and pleasant as possible.  We encourage our prospective patients to check out our ratings on RealSelf.com, Healthgrades.com, Vitals.com, and others.
