Dr. Rebekah Zaluzec believes in being involved in all aspects of patient care. From consult to long term follow up, Dr. Zaluzec strives to partner with her patients to address their needs. Her patient care approach involves listening intently to the aesthetic wishes of her patients and expertly assessing surgical options ranging from cancer treatment and reconstruction, to the nuances and facial symmetry in aesthetic procedures.
