Achieving a natural result is exceptionally important in facial surgery. Your face is your "calling card," and the first thing others notice about you. Facial surgery should be performed with attention to detail in order to achieve a result that leads to a natural looking appearance. You want compliments without looking like you had a cosmetic surgery procedure. That takes true talent and artistry.
On a personal note, Dr. Morrissette travels to Central and South America as a volunteer to perform surgeries on children in third world countries, and to train doctors in the area in these procedures. He also enjoys playing ice hockey, wake boarding, boating, and water skiing, as well as riding his Harley down the PCH, and sharing his free time with his family.
