Why He Became a Plastic Surgeon
As a young man, an excitement for medicine was joined with his love of art and creativity. The world of art was beckoning at his door, so he went through it to find painting and sculpting in stone, metal and wood, as well as writing and poetry.
Dr. Rosenthal’s passion for art enhances his cosmetic surgery by allowing him to be creative and; thus, sculpt a naturally refreshed appearance. He views “surgery as art.” “I have used my artistry to enhance all that I touch. My objective is to bring a smile to each patient’s face. It is important to listen to their personal desires so that I can release both their inner sparkle and outer beauty.”
Many of his cosmetic techniques for “Facelift, Eyelid, Nasal Surgery” and body contouring “ Breast, Liposuction and Tummy tucks” were devised and refined through his meticulous attention to detail and his single-minded passion that his specialty requires. His “Rosenthal Liquid Facelift,” sculpts the cheeks and face with Radiesse, Juvéderm or Expression and Botox, yielding a beautifully enhanced facial appearance.
