What inspired your passion for your profession?

I am passionate about helping peoples reclaim their bodies and with the physical change see a renewed sense of confidence and joy in their lives. My goal is to help you look natural; refreshed; youthful and the best possible version of yourself. I think each person is unique; and I can work with you to enhance your features to look and feel great.

I have built my practice on the principle that my patients deserve individualized treatments plans and exceptional care. I have been practicing since 1991; and I am passionate about delivering excellent health care in a five-star service driven environment. I want to provide you with an exclusive place with a full spectrum of aesthetic services. North Shore Plastic Surgery offers quality skin care; laser treatments; fillers; and the any surgical treatments to help you look and feel your best. I am looking forward to meeting you; discussing your goals and will do my very best to help you achieve exceptional results!

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

I love all types of plastic surgery! Some of my favorites are mommy makeovers; tummy tucks; breast augmentation; face & neck lift and breast lift. There are many procedures that change lives like gynecomastia; breast reduction and rhinoplasty and it is very gratifying to see how happy patients are when they come to see me for post operative check ups.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a patient?

I am so thankful every time I get a hug; a card even fruit arrangements! It is always so thrilling to see a patient transformed and to experience their gratitude...it is why I do what I do! I recently had a man come in to thank me on the 20th anniversary of his surgery. He was attacked with a machete and had raised his hand in defense. After a 15 hour long operation I was able to save his hand and restore function....no words can describe how grateful I was to see him and see that his life is going well. Although I no longer do hand surgery; I believe that the intricate detailed work I learned to perform it has made me a attuned to fine detail work and a better surgeon.

What makes your practice stand apart?

I learned so much in my educational and training years and have become a life long learner. Many of the techniques I have learned I have improved upon and perfected with my own Rapid Recovery techniques. My Rapid Recovery techniques enable patients to recovery quickly and resume their routines as quickly as possible. I apply these principles in all my treatments to make sure my patients are comfortable and thrilled with their results. I have trained my staff to give every patient the 5 Star treatment because it is how they deserve to be treated.

What should patients know about your pricing?

We are competitive and offer several different financing options. We strive to offer the best possible value with the best possible outcome.

How many years have you been in business?

Board certified plastic surgeon for 28 years.

What do clients have to say about you?

"If you have been considering having any type of procedure; I highly recommend Dr. Wages - consult with him and see the new life you could have. I thought about having surgery for years; but never thought I could. Then I met Dr. Wages and everything changed; everything he explained; all the questions he answered - I was shown what really could be. Then I had the body surgery (midsection) that changed my life; that saved my life; it took me from the the hidden existence I had been living and now I have a healthier body; a healthier outlook; I haven't felt this good in years!! Dr. Wages and his staff were wonderful; attentive; caring and assuring; they checked in on me regularly after the procedure; the healing was seamless; I had no complications or side affects that I had heard about and the scaring was minimal. I carry myself with a confidence I haven't known in many years; this really gave me my life back!! There is not enough gratitude to express what Dr. Wages and his staff did for me!" Susan 4/2019

"I have had an amazing and positive life changing experience with Dr. Wages having a very successful and perfect breast augmentation. It was an extremely easy; quick; and painless recovery. I was out running errands the next day and doing laundry. I was to back to work in 3 days! Dr. Wages did a perfect job and so many including myself were so impressed in the technique and quick recovery as well people saying "they are the perfect size for your" and "they look very natural". My breasts are the perfect size and for the first time in my life I feel proportioned and very confident as I have very athletic body type and am a personal trainer. A nurse I work with and many other she works with highly recommended Dr. Wages for best technique; easiest recovery; and doing the best job. His staff and himself are extremely friendly; provide superior customer service and make you very comfortable. I am so grateful I met him and his staff and would recommend any procedure or surgery with him." Tammy 2/2019

"My first visit to Dr. Wages was very inviting from all of his staff. I met the doctor and we went over all my needs and expectations. I truly could not stand my belly hanging and my chubby mid drift . Dr. Wages has a great eye for perfection. We went over everything and I had a full understanding of the operation that would be needed. We continued to pursue my mission and scheduled the operation for a month later. Every step of the way was nothing but professionalism and kindness from his entire staff. The operation was a total success and the results are remarkable!!! I haven't measured my waist yet but I'm sure it is at least 3 inches smaller and flat as a pancake!!! I will definitely be referring my friends to Dr. Wages and his staff!! Happy 2019!!!!!!"
