Adam Greenbaum - Cutting Edge Plastic Surgery

Private Service, Plastic Surgery


I am a Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon working in private practice. My practice covers the area between Hamilton and South Auckland. I offer surgery in Pukekohe (local anaesthetic procedures and appearance medicine) and at Quay Park Surgical Centre in Central Auckland (surgery requiring general anaesthetic and day case procedures).
My philosophy is to approach my patients' care holistically and to tailor treatments alone and in combination to achieve each patient's goal. I talk to and try to educate my patients so as to empower them to make informed decisions about their care. I operate a very personal practice; every surgical or non-surgical treatment is planned and administered by me – not a nurse or an aesthetician. If you entrust your treatment to me, then you and your wellbeing become my personal responsibility.
Many patients do not require surgery, but can achieve the cosmetic restoration and aesthetic enhancement they desire by judicious administration of non-surgical treatments. I administer the full range of non-surgical cosmetic treatments, such as Botox®, facial peels or dermal and soft tissue fillers. I also administer laser and intense pulsed light  treatments where appropriate.

For those patients who are suitable for cosmetic surgery, I plan and perform such surgery with care and expertise in order to improve your appearance and restore the natural beauty of your youth. I believe surgery should achieve natural, attractive results that avoid an 'operated look', whilst giving you a restored, or aesthetically enhanced physical beauty.
