For the past 20 years, I have led a broad-based practice that tackles complex cosmetic and reconstructive procedures on patients who range in age from newborn babies to the elderly. I am a plastic surgeon who is board-certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and have completed fellowships in surgical oncology, hand surgery, microsurgery, and cosmetic surgery.
I am honored to have been recognized in the area of post-Mohs reconstruction that involves rebuilding of the face and/or body after removal of skin cancers. The complexity of these procedures requires a detailed knowledge of anatomy and special skills above and beyond what is necessary to be a good aesthetic (cosmetic) plastic surgeon in order to reconstruct complex defects and restore an optimal appearance.
My most important task is to educate patients about all of the options that are available to them. In this way we can tailor every procedure to fit the needs of each individual patient. I would rather see my patients 10 times to make sure all of their questions are answered than rush into surgery while leaving some questions on their mind.
I work with a well-trained and experienced staff, who work closely with our patients to ensure that their experience is seamless and gratifying. Over the years I have received many honors and distinctions from the medical community, but what I’m most proud of is the recognition I get from our patients. What I truly enjoy about my job is the opportunity to interact with patients and help them feel better about themselves.
DR. A. PETER SALAS is recognized by Plastic Surgery Select as one of the top POST-MOHS RECONSTRUCTION surgeons in New Jersey.
