Meet Our Staff

Here at Mesos Plastic Surgery and Laser Center we strive for all of our patients to receive excellent pre- and post-operative care from our professional and clinical staff. The licensed nurses, and extensively trained support staff are one of the thresholds required to achieve accreditation for our surgical facility by The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). The “Quad-A” approval is the gold standard in the industry.
