Our Mission

At Allegany Plastic Surgery, we strive to exceed patient expectations in both cosmetic and reconstructive endeavors. In order to maximize safety, comfort, and—of course—results, we take time to understand each patient’s specific aesthetic and/or reconstructive needs. We not only provide exceptional medical and surgical care, but also offer a safe and comfortable atmosphere in which patients are encouraged to ask questions, give feedback, and share personal information and preferences.

(Continual) Education and Experience

We believe that excellence in plastic surgery is derived from both education and experience. This principle maintains that education, of course, is more than a diploma hanging on an office wall. Because the medical world is constantly advancing, surgical education is a living process, and we pride ourselves on our commitment to continual education. The skills Dr. Carpenter learned in his full eight years of training in General and Plastic Surgery have been continually sharpened in his clinical practice since 1995. He continues to educate himself about evolving surgical techniques and modern medical equipment. As a practice, we are constantly learning about recently-developed techniques, equipment, and standards, so that we can deliver you safer procedures with reliable results.

To solidify his years of experience, Dr. Carpenter possesses the most important qualification in plastic surgery: Board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).

Uncompromising Safety

Neither Dr. Carpenter nor his team sacrifices safety or quality for speed or efficiency. The team at Allegany Plastic Surgery is committed to the highest ethical standards of care, and to protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and safety standards to ensure constant patient protection. Our private surgicenter is AAAASF- and Medicare-certified, which means it has met the highest federal government standards of quality and patient safety.

A Personal Touch

Our practice offers you the best of both worlds: state-of-the-art surgical services, all bundled up in the warmth of a small town. Dr. Carpenter works personally with his patients to fully understand each person’s concerns and to provide the best possible medical care. Each patient is provided with his or her full spectrum of procedural options and collaborates with our staff to develop a personalized treatment plan that is specifically tailored to his or her needs and wishes. While we understand that some patients may feel uneasy about cosmetic or plastic surgery, we are confident that we provide a life-changing, life-affirming, and overall rejuvenating experience that revolves around you and everything you need.
