"When it comes to patient care, the most important thing is to always be available for the patient. Always being available to answer any questions, pre or post operation."

Dedication to the craft and a deep concern for the peace of mind of his patients has made Dr. Hassan one of the field's most successful cosmetic surgeons for over 35 years. "We always maintain a high level of creativity relative to what is happening in the field at this time," says Dr. Hassan. "You must always stay with the times to maintain creativity. If you're not coming up with your own new procedure, you have to keep up with all the new procedure's that are coming out. Going to seminars, watching the latest DVD's and videotapes... keeping abreast of what is out there."

Being there, always, for every patient, is of vital importance to Dr. Hassan, as well as creating an overall atmosphere of comfort. "When a patient comes to the office, everyone on my staff is very friendly. Our office atmosphere is very cozy. I'm with the patient before surgery and right up until they go to sleep. When they wake up, I'm right next to them. And then, when they enter the recovery room... there's always a nurse who reacts one to one with the patient. I'm also always there for them in person until they go home, and then I make myself available to them whenever they need me."

For Dr. Hassan, one of the great fringe benefits of being a cosmetic surgeon is the joy it brings to his patients when they see the results. "The surgeons and staff at South Shore are just wonderful," says SSCS patient Toni. "They truly care about helping people. It's all about "you" and what they can do for you. Dr. Hassan is amazing... not just because he's such a great surgeon, but also because he's so humble. That's a quality I look for in people. I felt relaxed about the surgery because Dr. Hassan gave me confidence. His confidence is what I needed. He was totally positive about everything."
