About Our Practice

Cosmetic surgery can greatly increase a person’s self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as affect both personal and professional life in a positive and lasting way. However, it’s a serious commitment and not one to be taken lightly. When investing in a more youthful, attractive self-image, whether by surgical or non-surgical means, only the very best cosmetic surgeons will do. Dr. James Black, a board-certified plastic surgeon, and Dr. Michael Arnstein are skilled cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons with years of experience and a proven track record of success. Both doctors are versed in traditional cosmetic enhancement treatments, as well as the most cutting edge surgical reconstructive techniques and non-surgical rejuvenation methods available today. While their technical expertise makes them sought-after for their superior results, it’s their individual attention and customized treatment plans that ensure each patient receives the optimal treatment, after-care, and successful, long-lasting outcomes. And since each patient’s care is customized for their individual skin type, condition, and stage of life, the treatments blend harmoniously with the body’s natural endowments, revealing the beauty and grace that may be hidden beneath the surface.


Versatility in Cutting-Edge Techniques

Each patient has a unique face, body, and skin type, and so it’s critical that a wide array of techniques and options are available to achieve each patient’s desired results.  For many patients, a minimally invasive treatment such as Botox® injections may be sufficient to achieve youthful enhancement, while for others, a surgical procedure such an eyelift or even a facelift, might present a more optimal solution. Still other patients may be seeking the slimming, sexy curves offered by body contouring surgery such as a tummy tuck or Mommy Makeover.  And for patients in need of reconstructive surgery, the latest, most advanced techniques can now offer the ability to minimize and even erase visible scars left behind from illness or accident.  So no matter what your desired outcome or aesthetic goals are, Dr. James Black and Dr. Michael Arnstein can offer a wide range of treatment options based on their extensive experience and expertise in both surgical and non-surgical procedures, in order to help you look and feel your best.


Personalized Care

No two human beings are quite the same—age, lifestyle, and heredity affect us all in different ways. And because of the individual differences that make each one of us unique, beautiful, and talented in our own way, “cookie cutter” treatment plans simply aren’t adequate. Both Dr. James Black and Dr. Michael Arnstein are experts in evaluating each individual’s cosmetic needs and desired aesthetic effect, and will work individually with each patient to design a safe, cost-effective treatment plan that achieves the optimal results. A consultation in our warm, comfortable, and tastefully-decorated offices will determine a range of treatment options. We’ll be with you every step of the way—discussing your treatment preferences, answering questions and addressing concerns, until you’re completely comfortable with your treatment plan. We’ll help you prepare for your procedure, explaining the process, recovery and downtime so that you have a clear understanding of the details involved. And following your procedure, we’ll be there as well—listening to your concerns and offering advice and consultation as your body evolves into the beautiful, youthful new you.


Superior Results

Results are what count, and Dr. Black and Dr. Arnstein have a long history of providing superior service to satisfied patients. Both are surgical craftsmen, tailoring a treatment plan to best augment the patient’s own natural beauty, recommending augmentations that blend and harmonize with the patient’s natural attributes. Not only are these enhancements artistically sculpted to blend gracefully and seamlessly with each individual’s inherent beauty, they also optimize the rejuvenating effects for longevity, maximizing the impact of each treatment over time. Because attention to detail is so central to their practice, the focus on fine contouring and minute detail ensures a successful, harmonious, and long-lasting result.
