At Edina Plastic Surgery, we know you have a lot of options when it comes to seeking a plastic surgery clinic in the Twin Cities. As a patient, this can feel very overwhelming. Which clinic provides your procedure of interest? Who are the best providers of your desired surgery? What makes one plastic surgery practice or surgeon different than the others? To help you decide, Edina Plastic Surgery has compiled a list of key factors that make us unique in the Twin Cities area (and beyond) when it comes to excellence in plastic surgery. Read on to learn why our practice and providers are considered the area’s leaders in plastic surgery and patient care!

#1 – All of our physicians are board-certified plastic surgeons

At Edina Plastic Surgery, you can rest assured that you are in safe and exceptionally skilled hands. Drs. Nathan Leigh, Michael Philbin, Robert Wilke, and Christine Stewart are all board-certified plastic surgeons by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Cumulatively, they have served the Twin Cities area for over forty years!

#2 – Each of our plastic surgeons has been voted a “Top Doc” or “Rising Star” by Mpls. St. Paul Magazine 

Our plastic surgeons are consistently recognized by their peers and patients as TOP DOCTORS in the Twin Cities. In fact, many of our surgeons have held the honor of “TOP DOC” for over ten years in a row!

#3 – Our plastic surgeons provide complimentary consultations

Our plastic surgeons appreciate what a big decision it is to have surgery and how important it is that you partner with the right provider. We want to ensure that you feel safe, confident, and informed in your options and choices, NEVER intimidated or pressured. For this reason, our surgeons offer 100% complimentary consultations.

#4 – We are a fully accredited facility

Edina Plastic Surgery is accredited by The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF), an organization that measures quality in outpatient facilities. AAAASF sets the bar for standards in outpatient surgery and requires surgeons to be board certified and hold hospital privileges for any procedures performed. The organization requires that anesthesia professionals are onsite for deeper levels of anesthesia and that the surgery environment meets stringent safety standards. While licensing for medical professionals is required by the government, accreditation is voluntary and requires quality standards that exceed those of licensing. 

#5 – Our surgery center is onsite

Edina Plastic Surgery provides a modern health care facility equipped to accommodate same-day surgical care – right here in our clinic! We have transformed the outpatient procedure experience for our patients by providing a more convenient and comfortable alternative to hospital-based outpatient procedures. Our patients appreciate having their surgeries in the same building as other consulting visits. We are one of the first practices in the Twin Cities to offer onsite surgical services.

Complete with two state-of-the-art operating rooms and a minor procedure room, our surgical center is supported by a specially trained and dedicated medical team. The surgical center is conveniently located on the same floor as our clinic. For those who prefer, the center can be accessed via a discreet back entrance and elevator. Your comfort, privacy, and special requests are important to us, and we will do everything to provide a high-quality experience.

#6 – We offer Vectra XT 3D and Sientra® Mirror digital imaging software to preview your surgical results before surgery

We believe that technology and medical innovations are essential investments that help our clinic continuously improve patient care and services. Edina Plastic Surgery is the only practice in the Twin Cities to have both the Vectra XT 3D Camera and the Sientra® Mirror – two digital imaging technologies that can show you a preview of your surgical results before deciding on a procedure!

#7 – We offer the most comprehensive Facelift Surgery in the area

At Edina Plastic Surgery, we go above and beyond to ensure you get the absolute best result from your surgery, including our unique approach to facelift surgery! Our Full Focus Facelift was explicitly developed to improve the quality of your results by placing additional effort into your skin’s health and conditioning before and after your facelift surgery. In addition to the surgery, our patients meet with a Skin Artisans Advanced Practice Esthetician who will provide a pre and post-surgical skincare regimen and laser treatments to enhance their surgical results. A postoperative shampoo is even included to ensure your sutures are clean and that you feel fresh and comfortable after your facelift.

#8 – We have a state-of-the-art medical spa that is directed by our onsite plastic surgeons

Skin Artisans is an onsite medical spa owned and medically directed by the plastic surgeons at Edina Plastic Surgery. Here, our licensed and experienced skincare professionals collaborate with our surgeons to help our patients achieve their healthiest, most youthful-looking skin and the best results from their surgery. Skin Artisans offers the most advanced skincare, laser, and cosmetic injectable treatments available today under the care of our industry experts who put YOU first. 

#9 – Our entire staff is 100% focused on you and your experience with us

At Edina Plastic Surgery, our patients frequently comment that the staff makes them feel like family – that’s because we ARE a family! From our front desk administrative team to our perioperative nurses and surgeons, our entire staff is 100% committed to exceeding our patient’s expectations. We have a clinic culture that values listening to our patients, making your surgical journey comfortable and easy, and going the extra mile to make you look and feel your best!

#10 – We exceed the expectations of our patients and elevate the industry standard of patient care

Plastic surgery can change a person’s life. Not just how they look but how they feel about themselves and the world around them. When we feel pride in our appearance, we approach our lives with more confidence. We interact with people differently, and our outlook on life becomes more positive. At Edina Plastic Surgery, we respect the transformation that plastic surgery can have on the lives of our patients and never forget what an honor it is that our patients have chosen us to partner with on their surgical journey.
