Dr. Capuano had seven years of additional training to become Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He has remained innovated, studied and skilled in modern and advanced techniques of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Capuano was convinced for many years and remains convinced that LESS CAN BE MORE AND BETTER. This has been proven by modern advances in cosmetic surgery and other types of surgery.
He has concentrated on finding less extensive and invasive methods of surgery and has provided his patients with many non surgical alternatives to help achieve the goals of ‘turning back the clock’. Most importantly, the chances of major problems have been minimized.
