Whether he is performing a complex plastic surgery procedure, sinus surgery, or even a small mole excision, Dr Scaccia is extremely meticulous and precise. Surgery can often take several hours and often, especially during total rejuvenation cases, he will spend the entire day concentrating and working on just one patient.
