Sue's Story

When most people think of what a plastic surgeon could do for them, they might fantasize about a tummy tuck or a facelift. But for Gig Harbor’s Sue Galpin, a plastic surgeon helped save her leg.

Dr. Elston, she says, helped with her healing not just in the operating room but during each office visit. “He was direct and truthful, but he was always giving me hope, saying ‘This is going to get better.’”
