September marked 10 years in business for Proffer Surgical Associates. From a small office in MediPark to the WHA building to a free-standing, specially designed facility, we’ve grown a lot in a decade!
Since Sept. 16, 2006, Proffer Surgical Associates has opened the Spa, expanded into cosmetics and skin care, added laser treatments to the services menu and served 30,000 patients. But there are a few things — and people — that have remained the same over the years.
Get to know: Dr. Paul Proffer
As an ophthalmologist, Dr. Paul Proffer experienced much success. He joined South Texas Eye Associates after residency, and then after two years, he went on to join Braverman-Terry Eye Associates in San Antonio. There, he performed reconstructive and cosmetic eyelid surgeries in addition to BOTOX Cosmetic.
His success with Braverman-Terry Eye Associates prompted him to undergo additional training for facial cosmetic procedures, much to the satisfaction of many of his patients. Dr. Paul was accepted in 2004 into one of only 13 fellowship positions nationwide with a focus on oculofacial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. During this Columbus, Ohio, fellowship over the next two years, Dr. Paul took part in more than 2,800 cases.
Once his training was complete, Dr. Paul contributed to the establishment of Proffer Surgical Associates in Amarillo. Dr. Paul understands the importance of a personalized rejuvenation plan for each patient, and he strives to give his patients the best experience and the greatest results possible. Helping people feel more confident about their appearance while providing optimal care for reconstructive patients following trauma and skin cancer removal is by far his favorite part of the job.
As an integral part of this organization, he’s proud to say Proffer Surgical Associates is the largest injectables provider in the Texas Panhandle. Dr. Paul specializes in the following services at Proffer Surgical Associates:
- Cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, eyelids, and brows;
- Non-surgical and laser rejuvenation of the face, eyelids, and brows;
- BOTOX Cosmetic;
- Laser skin resurfacing;
- JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel / Restylane® / Sculptra®;
- Chemical peels;
- Skin care products.
When Dr. Paul isn’t helping patients achieve their skin and face goals, you can find him hanging out with his family, coaching his two kids in their athletic activities, traveling, fly fishing, fitness training, or studying up on colonial history.
