About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

"Physical presentation should never be a distraction from the innate power or personal ability."

In my office plastic surgery is NOT a frivolous pursuit of perfection.
Cosmetic surgery may instead be about going out into the world with confidence. It is about restoring abdominal core strength through abdominoplasty or tummy tuck to repair the rectus diastasis caused by pregnancy. It is about improving physical comfort with a breast reduction. It is about reconstructing the breast shape or size we used to have, or finally getting the shape and size we always wanted through the use of breast implants, breast lifting or a combination of both. It is about having a youthful and healthy looking face that reflects our internal strength and power, not simply our numerical age. It is about balancing size 12 hips with a size 8 waist by sculpting the outer thighs with liposuction. Aesthetic surgery is about safely improving whatever it is that makes us feel less than completely powerful and confident, even just in the back of our minds when we zip our jeans, try on clothes or look in the mirror to brush our teeth.
Plastic surgery is about safely fixing that which makes us feel negatively so that we have more positive energy to do what we do best each day.
