Patient Philosophy

As a surgeon committed to producing individualised results for every patient, Dr Teston sees all of her patients at their initial consultation, rather than having a nurse or assistant perform the initial screening.

While your health and safety are her top priorities, she will also strive to achieve your cosmetic desires.
