Philosophy
Dr. Burgdorf believes in treating the whole patient, not just the disease. He understands that surgical procedures and medical language can sometimes be confusing and intimidating.

He is also aware that undergoing cosmetic surgery is a big step in one’s life, and he is humbled each time a patient places their trust in him. Dr. Burgdorf believes patients should fully understand their choices and never feel rushed to have surgery. He views surgery as entering into a “partnership” with the patient and therefore believes the decision to have surgery should be a team effort.
