Richard E. Carlino, MD, FACS
Dr. Carlino has retired after serving the North Carolina community for over two decades. He is proud of the legacy he has built with Specialists in Plastic Surgery and the thousands of patients he has been able to help throughout his career. Dr. Blanton and Dr. Daluvoy will continue what they and Dr. Carlino started and look forward to assisting all of Dr. Carlino’s patients with their aesthetic needs.
Plastic Surgery is about change–sometimes it’s a change in a feature that a person doesn’t like, or perhaps it’s about body features that have changed with time; sometimes it’s about maintenance and looking as good as you feel. My goals are threefold:
- To offer my patients an extraordinary level of expertise in a very individual and personalized setting.
- To understand the aesthetic goals of my patients while helping to establish realistic expectation.
- Above all, to form a comfortable and trusting relationship allowing each patient to undergo his or her surgery with confidence.
Training complements ability. Some cosmetic surgeons receive limited training with limited exposure. Cosmetic surgery is about performing procedures, while Plastic Surgery is about developing artistry and concepts.
It is about working with patients and defining the correct procedures to perform to get their desired results. It’s about the ability to understand and communicate realistic from unrealistic aesthetic goals. With every patient, I work to combine my in-depth plastic surgery training (over 19 years of experience as a plastic surgeon in the Triangle) and ability as a surgeon to provide each patient with extraordinary results.
