Dr. Polacek’s Philosophy
The Polacek Center for Plastic Surgery first began in 1991, at which time Dr. Polacek was the first female plastic surgeon in Rhode Island. After almost 30 years of performing surgical procedures of the face, breast, and body, Dr. Polacek decided to shift the focus of her practice to providing solely non-surgical options. This came as a result of the many advancements that have occurred over the years in minimally invasive aesthetic procedures. The number of treatment options has significantly grown, and results from these solutions are better than ever. From BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers to laser technology and other skin care solutions, non-surgical treatments continue to improve, providing exceptional results with fewer risks and downtime. Dr. Polacek is thrilled to offer her patients the advanced potential of these minimally invasive services, as she believes they can create beautiful enhancements for the right candidates.
“I believe a person’s self-esteem is integral to their sense of well-being. If I can improve that person’s self-esteem through non-surgical procedures, then I have achieved my goal as an aesthetic physician. With decades of experience as a female plastic surgeon, I bring compassion and an eye for detail to you, the patient. At the Polacek Center for Plastic Surgery, we understand the importance of privacy and confidentiality in your non-surgical aesthetic care, and we strive to accomplish this at every level.”

Why Choose a Plastic Surgeon for Non-Surgical Treatments?
By seeking aesthetic care from a board-certified plastic surgeon—even for procedures that do not require surgery—you can take comfort in knowing your physician has an advanced level of expertise. Plastic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery have undergone at least six years of specialty training and continue to uphold the highest standards of patient safety and care. Dr. Polacek practiced plastic surgery for nearly 30 years before exclusively dedicating her practice to non-surgical aesthetic rejuvenation. While these accomplishments are not necessary to perform non-surgical treatments, choosing a physician who has this experience can ensure you are receiving safe and effective care with the best possible results. When it comes to enhancing your appearance, consider choosing a plastic surgeon like Dr. Polacek who is proficient in non-surgical aesthetic procedures. By doing so, you are receiving care from a physician with the knowledge and background necessary to help you achieve your desired outcome.
As a plastic surgeon, I wanted to find a team that I could trust for non-invasive treatments that I didn’t offer in my office. I chose Dr. Polacek as I have known and respected her for years. She has a stellar reputation. I was treated very well by her front office team. I also dealt with her office manager, Andrea Desimone, who was superb. My time with Dr. Polacek was terrific just as I had expected. We arrived at a treatment plan that was just right for me. It was pain free and I am already seeing very nice results.
