Throughout his career as a board certified, renowned plastic surgeon and a respected educator, Dr. Finical has never lost sight of his most important achievement: a happy patient. There have been many at Charlotte Plastic Surgery, and Dr. Finical is known as much for his enduring relationships with patients as his surgical expertise.
In conversations with his patients, he addresses concerns and helps them understand what to look for in a plastic surgeon, what to expect during procedures, and what results can be achieved. “An educated patient is the best patient,” he explains. “I don’t gloss over options, alternatives, or risks. All of my patients hear that. We work as a team.”
In addition to such career highlights as working on The Faculty and Staff at the Mayo Clinic and contributing frequently to many peer-reviewed journals, Dr. Finical is proud that he spent time mastering the art of customer service through Ritz-Carlton training. He believes that going above and beyond to make patients feel more comfortable and at home is fundamental to the philosophy of his team and his practice.

These surgeons specialize in some of the most complex cosmetic nose procedures with the most innovative surgical techniques for Rhinoplasty surgery.
