Plastic Surgery in Monterey CA

Our Aesthetic Nurses at Gallery Plastic Surgery are knowledgeable, skilled, and talented at their craft. Dr. Wong believes that her patients deserve the best and that it is her responsibility to make sure her aesthetic nurses are experts in their field and have access to advanced training.

Each of our aesthetic nurses have been personally trained by Dr. Wong, starting with the foundations of safety and facial anatomy. It is extremely rare for an aesthetic nurse to be personally and extensively trained by a board certified plastic surgeon. Many aesthetic nurses begin with weekend crash courses and work quite minimally in aesthetics for years. On the contrary, our nurses are completely immersed and work full time in aesthetics.

Also, it is so exciting that Dr. Wong sends our aesthetic nurses all over the country for expert training courses; It is wonderful to get to bring cutting-edge techniques back to Monterey! Safety and honesty are a priority at our clinic. Should any issues or questions arise, our aesthetic nurses always feel comfortable and confident knowing that they have a board-certified plastic surgeon who they can turn to as part of our aesthetic team.

Aesthetic Nurse Injectors from our team


“We all desire to feel our best and to be our best. Aesthetics allow us to match how we feel or may want to feel on the inside with how we see ourselves on the outside. I want my patients to have all of the confidence in themselves and in myself as their practitioner as we navigate their aesthetic journey together.” 

-Aesthetic Nurse, Alicia

“I have always dreamed of becoming a nurse and serving the community I was born and raised in. In 2014, I graduated nursing school with honors and subsequently began my journey in the medical field. I have developed a refined range of skills from working in long term and acute care settings (trauma, telemetry, medical/surgical and intermediate care) which have contributed to my superb attention to detail as an aesthetic nurse. It is a privilege to use my clinical skills to deliver my patients safe and compassionate care that can contribute to the betterment of their self-esteem and feeling that they are the best version of themselves. I know firsthand how aesthetics and plastic surgery can have a significant impact on self-confidence and for so many be a wonderful life-changing experience.”
