Searching for a highly trained and skilled plastic surgeon can be confusing to many patients.

This guarantees that your surgeon has the extensive and specialized plastic surgery training and credibility in the industry that other surgeons may lack.

For years, Dr. Vistnes has pursued his passion for plastic surgery and the artistry of aesthetics, which is why he performs a wide array of procedures of the face, breasts and body, which include: face lifts, eye lifts, facial surgery and chin implants, ear surgery, breast enlargement, lifts and reductions, Smartlipo™ and body contouring, tummy tucks and mommy makeovers - in addition to non-invasive laser treatments, fillers and anti-aging therapies.
