The Restora Austin Team
As a team of dedicated and caring professionals, we have adopted the same philosophy as our talented surgeons, “Beginning with trust, ending with beauty”. It guides our daily efforts, and it is the basis of the superlative patient care that defines Restora Austin. When you choose a plastic surgeon, you are choosing the support staff as well. What a compliment to Dr. Reid and Dr. Gordon that over half of us staff started out as patients of Restora Austin. We each strive to provide the same nurturing support and exceptional care we received as patients of the practice. Together with our surgeons, our goal is to exceed your expectations through our kindness, concern and professionalism. We are not only dedicated and highly qualified, but we are devoted to guiding you through each stage of your journey and ultimately delivering the best cosmetic surgery experience possible.
