About Dr. George W. Commons, MD, FACS

Because plastic surgery is usually elective, you can take time to choose your surgeon carefully. I hope to earn your trust.

At the Plastic Surgery Center we have a full-time 6th year Stanford resident in plastic surgery. I do 100% of the surgery on my own patients and help the residents do surgery on their own cases.

I love the practice of plastic surgery, I love the patients, I love everyday. It is not in any way work. My practice is a joy, totally a pleasure; very serious but always joyful.

The serious part is that I daily take on the task of improving a person's life. It is their life. It is their only life. They are trusting me to do the best possible for them. That is the goal of a facelift, or breast surgery, or nasal surgery, or liposuction-to enhance the quality of a person's life. This is a very major and grave responsibility. I am honored by each patient that selects me as their surgeon. This is an honor of the highest order. A person is entrusting me with their surgery, entrusting me to enhance the quality of their life, to keep them safe, to care for them after surgery and to care about them 100%.

This is joyful surgery that the patient has elected. The surgery is not imposed on them by a cruel twist of injury or illness. The patient has chosen this and the responsibility placed on the plastic surgeon is one of the very highest order.

Some call it recreational surgery. Yes it is fun surgery but with a very very serious mission. The plastic surgeon must rise to this mission. Every evening I study and mentally prepare for the surgery of the coming day. I want to know everything before entering the operating room. All plans must be formulated in my mind.

While preparing for surgery at the scrub sink (10 minutes of hand washing) I like to think that I am about to pilot a Boeing 747 on a mission. The flight will go well or not at my hand. I never deny adverse events could happen. Yes, even to me I say. My mission and my responsibility are grave. I am operating on a person. This is their life. Every decision must be correct. In all my actions I am guided by one thought: I must do the right thing 100% and 100% of the time.

Although it is a joy to be in surgery, every second is taken with great serious intent. I constantly remind myself of the honor the patient has bestowed upon me. I am always so appreciative to be in surgery. It is indeed a great privilege and honor.
