About Dr. Sophie Bartsich
Professional Statement
Dr. Bartsich's philosophy is that while there some rules and guidelines to aesthetics, the optimal result is customized and unexpected. Natural beauty is never a cookie cutter operation. This is a special commitment and procedure that requires attention to detail, intuition, and artistry. Patients should define their own beauty and write their own narrative, with a surgeon as their guide. Having a background in design, combined with training in the sciences, Dr. Bartsich helps bring all her patients' vision to a reality.

Dr. Bartsich's research focus is cosmetic breast surgery. This began with work on implant-based complications that she performed as a resident in 2010. This research won two awards at the national Aesthetic Meeting in 2011, and ultimately became the basis of her current academic endeavors. Today, she is engaged in the development and promotion of better breast implants, as well as the eradication of breast cancer through inoculation against the Human Mammary Tumor Virus.

Q&A with the doctor
1. What is the breast experience that a patient can expect at your practice?

My practice runs a little differently. My office manager answers the phone, so you immediately get someone who knows you and can answer your questions. Consultations take as long as they need to, and you will usually get more information than you expected- which we think is good! As we discuss your goals, I try to envision the experience that you would like to have as a result of your breast surgery, instead of just the size in a vacuum. In terms of target outcome, my focus is to achieve a result that mimics nature, not breast augmentations, based on my design training rather than other surgeons' results. Also, I believe that all surgery is a relationship, and I remain in close contact with all surgical patients throughout their journeys.

2. You are all about bringing the "belly back". Can you elaborate a little for patients inquiring?

Pregnancy can do significant damage to the belly wall. So can a c-section. Many women have some form of belly wall weakness, deformity, or dysfunction after having children. For the most part, these women do not think that they can do anything about it, and they are told that they must just accept it. I believe that all mothers should be reconstructed and rehabilitated to the highest level possible, and what they should "expect" after having kids is to be supported in getting back to baseline.

3. Rhinoplasty is as popular as ever. You strive for subtlety that doesn't erase a person's individuality. Why is that important to you and your prospective patients?

The nose is such an integral part of the face and of someone's identity. Decades ago, there was only one idea of the ideal nose shape, and most surgeons tried to make every nose look like that. I believe that every face has a different "ideal" nose, and I try to maintain that authenticity. A beautiful and balanced nose can only be that in the context of the rest of the patient.
