Dr. Patrick Sullivan and the entire team at his Rhode Island plastic surgery practice are dedicated to providing excellent patient care by treating “the whole body.” Dr. Sullivan says this principle means they always put the patient first, above all else.

For that reason, Dr. Sullivan requires all of his patients to undergo a thorough physical examination prior to any surgical procedure. Other plastic surgeons may not require this, but Dr. Sullivan believes ensuring a patient’s overall health is of the utmost importance. He says some patients will not agree to the physical, and end up having their surgery elsewhere.

Luckily, one of his patients, Aurora, agreed to the thorough evaluation before having eyelid surgery. The physical included a mammogram, and because of the mammogram, Aurora’s doctor detected breast cancer. Her eyelid surgery was cancelled, and because of the early detection, she was able to undergo a double mastectomy and says she knows she will survive. Dr. Sullivan says Aurora is only one of a handful of his patients who have discovered underlying health issues through the required evaluation, adding that early detection before developing a major health issue, or complicating one through cosmetic procedures, is of the utmost importance to him and his team.

Dr. Sullivan remains committed to the well-being of his Rhode Island plastic surgery patients. Other than requiring a thorough evaluation, they take the time to get to know each of their patients prior to any surgical or nonsurgical procedure, and will recommend against it if they do not feel it is in the patient’s best interests. “We want to enable people to live their lives to the fullest in every way: superb health, energy, vitality, confidence. All of these allow people to be more passionate about their lives. They are happier and can give and contribute more.”

Dr. Sullivan is happy to announce he has resumed elective surgeries!

We are also now seeing patients in the office again following all guidelines and taking every precaution possible to provide an incredibly safe environment for all patients and staff.

Due to cases being moved back from the spring and the pent up demand for our services we are expecting to be FULLY booked out for the summer soon, limited spots are available. If you have any interest in summer surgery or services, please call us or contact us immediately so we can help you coordinate this before those spots become unavailable. Further, if you are seeking any services or surgery in 2020, we are anticipating an increase in price soon to deal with operating room fee increases.

We are here for any surgical or cosmetic questions you may have. Get in touch with us to see if there is any way we can help you.

We will continue to be here virtually for all those who prefer to have consultations in the comfort of their home.

Our online virtual consultations have been a very popular option for patients from as far away as Asia as well as usual coast to coast patients from New York to California, Oregon to Florida and many in New England.

Our virtual web consultations can be done right in the comfort of your own home, all you need is a secure internet connection and a computer, tablet or smartphone! We have 5 main steps we aim to accomplish with the virtual consultation:

  1. We listen to each patient carefully to establish exactly what it is they are looking for.
  2. We will give instructions to each patient on the specific pictures we will need from them as part of the virtual consultation. We send out sample pictures of just what we need, and the patient can send back their pictures that replicate this.
  3. We have chosen specific before and after photos of Dr Sullivan’s patients in order to show the patients what a prospective patient can expect (note, individual results will vary).
  4. We plan out and together come up with what we think is going to be a superb treatment plan for them.
  5. Finally, we find a time that is best for them that we can get this done.

We welcome you. Please come - we are open & here for you. If you would like to have a VIRTUAL CONSULTATION or an IN PERSON CONSULTATION or have any questions at all, please give us a call at 401-214-5121 or contact us via the website to set up your virtual consultation today!
