Dr. Culbertson finds Sonoma County to be a great new home. He has easily adapted to Northern California's lifestyle, especially after spending a considerable amount of time in the cold Midwest. He enjoys hiking, biking, walking on the beach, and wine tasting in the great weather in Sonoma County. But his hidden talent is cooking. He spends most days each week cooking up everything from simple meals to gourmet feasts. He has a weak spot for all things sweet, particularly recipes involving dark chocolate.
The biggest influence in Dr. Culbertson’s decision to become a plastic surgeon was the Chair of Plastic Surgery at the University of Wisconsin, Dr. Michael Bentz. Dr. Culbertson shares,
“The best thing about being a plastic surgeon is the ability to combine science and creativity. I am continually revising my surgical techniques to improve patient outcomes. Dr. Bentz’ mentoring led me to where I am today. What he did was completely different from other surgical procedures, like re-creating a child’s absent ear with rib cartilage and using a woman’s abdominal tissue to restore her breasts after double mastectomies.”
Dr. Culbertson specializes in procedures such as the mommy makeover, breast augmentation, liposuction and tummy tucks. He performs surgical and non-surgical procedures like facelifts, drainless abdominoplasty, fat grafting, and other transforming procedures that boost his patients’ self-esteem and provide natural-looking results specific to each person’s unique anatomy, expectations and desires.
