Dr. Barnett does not advertise her services. She prefers to let her work speak for itself. The hallmark of good facial rejuvenation is a natural appearance. Dr. Barnett strives to achieve this for her patients with an eye on the long run. A high percentage of Dr. Barnett’s business is composed of repeat patients. They come not just because they have encountered compassionate, excellent service, but also because they can trust that Dr. Barnett will not turn them into the caricature of an overly-stretched Hollywood celebrity.
Dr. Barnett feels it is attention to detail that make a great facial plastic surgeon. You can see this just by walking into the beautifully appointed Sarasota Institute of Plastic Surgery, which she personally designed. It is evident in her use of Botox to selectively weaken ground muscles rather than totally paralyze them, thus achieving a wrinkle-free result without the unnatural frozen look. It is seen in her skillful use of fillers and replacement rather than old fashioned excisions and tightening. It is seen in the delicate stitchery and nearly invisible placement of incisions.
Dr. Barnett’s procedures are customized to each patient’s unique situation. Dr. Barnett performs many procedures in her office. Her gentle manner often makes these procedures feel more like a Spa treatment than surgery; it is in keeping with her philosophy that the best outcomes occur when SCIENCE is married with ART.
For safety reasons, larger procedures are performed in fully certified, top of the line outpatient surgery centers under the supervision of a board certified anesthesiologist. Dr. Barnett demands excellence of her support personnel as well as herself.
