AboutOptimal Plastic Surgery

At Optimal Plastic Surgery, we strive to help patients alter or enhance their body to their ideal image. Since each patient is unique, we will customize the procedure to meet the specific changes the patient desires. With both our surgical and non-surgical procedures, we can help draw out a patient’s inner beauty to help boost confidence in appearance and enhance specific features of their appearance.

Our team takes the time to guide the patient through the treatment process, including the recovery after treatment. While the recovery time can vary per procedure and patient, it is important to work with us in order to achieve the desired results properly. If you are interested in learning more about our plastic surgery options or want to schedule an appointment, call us today.

Dr. Joseph Bivens

As a plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Bivens has dedicated his life to the enhancement of the human form. He specializes in body transformation, managing the aging body and creating a balanced fulfilled patient. His research and work has been instrumental in the development of liposuction and breast implant surgery. Areas of expertise include laser lipolysis, ultrasonic liposuction as well as traditional liposculpture.

Dr. Bivens perfected his surgery techniques through work with the world’s leading experts in liposuction and body contouring. Today, he is recognized as a leader in liposuction and breast implant surgery.

His work begins with his careful analysis of the body and inner self and its effect on beauty. “A beautiful body can only evolve from the beauty within.” Dr. Bivens has strong convictions about the importance of the mind–body relationships.
