As one of Northwest Indiana’s most accomplished Ear, Nose & Throat surgeons, Dr. Bethany Cataldi also offers her unique expertise in Facial Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Enhancement procedures to her patients.
Bringing with her a life-long passion for providing medical care along with many years of extensive training, Dr. Cataldi focuses on a unique “one-to-one” approach to patient care. As the only female facial plastic surgeon in the region, Dr. Cataldi is especially in tune with the issues of feminine beauty and aesthetics requested by her patients.
Evaluating each patient’s own expectations is something Dr. Cataldi takes very seriously. “It’s my privilege to be able to help them achieve their aesthetic goals,” says Dr. Cataldi. “I always look at the process as a journey that a patient and I will take together, so we need to be on the same page as far as what is and what isn’t achievable. It’s important that a facial plastic surgeon be as forthcoming and honest as possible.”
“When discussing any surgical or cosmetic rejuvenation procedures, I prefer to direct my attention to and evaluate what each individual needs in a private and open dialogue to address each patient’s specific and unique concerns,” she explains. “I understand that some plastic surgeons prefer to market facial plastic/cosmetic procedures to large groups of potential candidates in a seminar setting. However, it’s my belief that every prospective patient is unique, and my experience has shown that an honest “one-to-one” approach with patients is best when it comes to cosmetic procedures, and it’s clearly evident in the results.”
Dr. Cataldi is especially noted for her wonderfully natural-looking mini face-lifts, full face-lifts, and neck-lifts that go far in tightening the musculature of the face. Dr. Cataldi also frequently performs blepharoplasty, a surgical procedure that entails the tightening the upper or lower eyelid skin, as well as rhinoplasty, otoplasty (a cosmetic surgery procedure to change the external appearance of patients’ ears), and skin cancer and skin lesion surgery.
She also regularly performs non-invasive cosmetic enhancement procedures such as laser skin rejuvenation and chemical peels as well as Restylane®, JuvedermTM, and Botox® that help reduce the visible effects of aging and are done in an office setting.
Due to the growth of her practice, Dr. Cataldi has recently expanded her main office to a much larger and more comfortable suite in Highland, Indiana. Says Dr. Cataldi, “My new office is nearly twice as large as my old space to provide my patients with an overall more comfortable and relaxing experience. In fact, the new office has an exclusive Facial Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Rejuvenation Suite with many first-class amenities.”
“The impact of cosmetic surgery and cosmetic enhancements on a patient is great,” says Dr. Cataldi. “Overall it helps improve one’s self confidence, one’s self esteem, and gives one a better quality of life. My ultimate goal in treating a patient is for a result that looks as natural as possible and for the patient to Look Better and Feel Better. Many of my patients are referred from other satisfied patients, and I try to put all of them at ease. My patients and I are on a journey together, and I want them to be happy at the end of it.”
