About Dr. Ganske
If you are considering reconstructive surgery, you want to look and function as normally as possible. If you are considering cosmetic surgery, you want to look as youthful and confident as you feel. Reconstructive and cosmetic surgery can be very beneficial—if it achieves the result you want.

The most important decision you will make about plastic and reconstructive surgery is who does the surgery.

You will want a surgeon who listens to you and understands your goals, a surgeon with experience and judgment to help you understand what can be achieved, and a surgeon who you can trust to be honest with you.

Plastic surgery is a partnership between you and your surgeon.

Plastic surgeons have a number of techniques at their disposal to achieve a particular result. The choice of which technique or procedure to use and how far to take that procedure is very important. That decision is based on the surgeon’s judgment while keeping in mind the patient’s goals and at the same time doing what is safe and reasonable for the patient!

Dr. Ganske offers his patients judgment, experience and surgical skills from nearly twenty years as a plastic surgeon. He trained in plastic surgery at Harvard, is a member of the American College of Surgeons and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

He has volunteered his skills to help hundreds of children from third-world countries like Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, Armenia, and Vietnam by surgically correcting birth defects like cleft lips and palates.
