Our Philosophy


Imagine Plastic Surgery Philosophy

Imagine Plastic Surgery provides a team of highly skilled and experienced health professionals who specialize in cosmetic plastic surgery. We realize surgery is not always the best solution. We offer a well-trained team that provides comprehensive cosmetic care using noninvasive, minimally-invasive and other state-of-the-art surgical techniques. We have more minimally-invasive and noninvasive technology than any medical or surgical practice in the Inland Empire. Thus summarized in our motto, “One Goal, Many Options.”

Additionally we have a team of healthcare providers who are not only certified and experienced in delivering the results you are seeking but who are sensitive to your needs. Our team at Imagine Plastic Surgery epitomizes excellence in patient care — enabling our patients to choose their treatment and control where and how. Simply stated, we as a team are acutely focused on the patient’s goals and final results.

Combined with Imagine Plastic Surgery’s team leader and award-winning surgeon Dr. Robert A. Hardesty, our patients can choose short-scar surgery, minimally-invasive and noninvasive options to realize their aesthetic goals. These important choices can all be discussed in one place, seamlessly prioritizing your goals and helping you become educated in your choices as well as fulfill your aesthetic needs, wants and desires.

Since our beginning in 2003 the Imagine Plastic Surgery team has been distinctively helping patients reach their aesthetic goals using noninvasive, minimally-invasive and other cutting-edge surgical techniques. We often combine these multiple modalities resulting in a final look that could not be obtained using surgery alone. Patients regularly state that by improving their external appearance they not only feel better about their body and themselves but realize a greater state of self-confidence.

See the success stories on our website. We are honored we could make such an impact on our patients’ lives.

"After research and meeting with several Doctors I made the right choice when I decided to go with Imagine Plastic Surgery and Dr. Hardesty. He was very informative and I knew he had my best interest when it came to my procedure. The staff is also awesome! They are so nice and make you feel so comfortable. I will continue to use him for any future needs!" -Verified Google Review
