Professional Statement

Dr. Karter’s favorite part of being a facial plastic surgeon is the patients; he loves meeting new people and forging new relationships. He is driven to help his patients exceed their expectations and improve their lives. His greatest reward is sharing in the “wow” moments that patients experience when they first see their new look. Dr. Nicholas Karter is board certified by American Board of Otolaryngology and fellowship trained in facial plastic surgery. He is passionate about his work and strives to enhance every aspect of the patient experience. His keen eye for aesthetics, advanced training, and extensive experience allow him to create exceptional results with a wide range of procedures that include facelift, brow lift, ear surgery, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, and facial liposuction. He is also an experienced injector, regularly working with top injectables like BOTOX®, Juvéderm®, and Restylane. Dr. Karter is a patient-focused facial plastic surgeon. He strives to make each patient feel valued, listened to, and respected. Rather than dictating care, Dr. Karter strives to act as a guide, educating and inspiring patients while working with them to achieve their unique goals. By focusing specifically on the patients’ individual needs, Dr. Karter finds that everyone learns together and emerges from the facial plastic surgery experience feeling empowered. As a knowledgeable surgeon, Dr. Karter focuses on presenting information and possibilities and letting his patient decide. He doesn’t use high-pressure sales or dismiss the risks of a procedure to make it sound appealing. Dr. Karter wants to give his patients a global understanding of their possibilities so that they can make an informed choice that best suits them. Most often, patients find that cosmetic treatments are a good fit, but if they aren’t, Dr. Karter won’t pressure you into proceeding with surgery. At Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery, we pride ourselves on providing our patients with the best: the best experience, the best results, and of course, the best surgeons. Both Dr. Karter and Dr. Seeley are trained and experienced facial plastic surgeons with a deep passion for cosmetic surgery. Our surgeons set our practice apart from the many others in Harford County and Connecticut more broadly, and they are the reason that our patients return again and again.
