Dr. Phil Haeck is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has practiced in the Seattle area for more than twe
nty-five years. After listening for years to his patients in the Northwest who pleaded they didn’t want to look like their surgery was done in Hollywood, he developed his practice philosophy, which he calls the "Northwest Natural Look." For Dr. Haeck’s patients this means a very soft, refreshed and natural look, not one that is stretched too tight, or too extreme. “In the Northwest,” Haeck says, “plastic surgery is not a status symbol, but a way for patients to just feel more confident about the way they look.”
Dr. Haeck at (drphilhaeck.com) received both his bachelor's degree and medical degree from Michigan State University. Upon graduating from medical school, Dr. Haeck completed his surgical residency at Swedish Hospital in Seattle and then trained in Plastic Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. At Baylor, he was mentored by many well-known plastic surgeons, including Dr. Frank Gerow, the inventor of the silicone breast implant. In his final year at Baylor, 1986, he also had the opportunity to perform some of the first liposuction procedures done in the U.S.
