About Our Team

The Team


As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, my passion is in helping you achieve a look on the outside that reflects how you feel on the inside. I take my time to get to know you so that together we can create a plan that helps you find your ‘True Face’. I define the ‘True Face’ as what you get when you pull the excess away. My team and I believe in restoring a youthful look that’s both beautiful and natural. We look forward to taking great care of you.

The nicest staff and beyond enjoyable experience. I couldn’t say anything bad about the experience I had there. If I could give more stars I would.

Wonderful from beginning to end. Dr. Almonte is kind and very knowledgeable and I felt comfortable and confident in his abilities to make me look natural. I had a couple concerns during healing and my questions were answered immediately. Will go back if I choose to do any other procedures in the future.
