Why Plastic Surgery in Portland, Maine?
Dr. Vaughan joined Plastic + Hand Surgical Associates in 1999. He says, “My wife and I chose to move to Maine for the lifestyle it offered. I am so grateful to be able to work with a group of fellow surgeons I admire, in order to give back to a community I love.”
Philosophy of Care
Dr. Vaughan wants his patients to know that what they are concerned about, he is concerned about. He says, “I want my patients to know that I care that they have a positive outcome – whether it’s a child with a dog bite, or a woman getting a face lift.” He understands that the culture here is different than in other parts of the country and that men and women who get cosmetic surgery in Maine just want to look natural. “Those patients,” he says, “are the ones we like.”
