About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

“Choosing an experienced plastic surgeon is one of the most important factors in the success of your cosmetic surgery. Each year millions of women and men choose plastic surgery to change the way they look and feel. I believe in listening to my patients to ascertain what their needs and expectations are. Too often in today’s world the patient is thought of as a customer or a consumer, in my practice our clients are people who are seeking proper medical care from a physician and staff devoted to achieving the best results.”

Staff & Facilities

Surgical Facility

Office based surgery is performed.
Accredited surgicenter or hospital based procedures for deep sedation or general anesthesia.

Computer Imaging

Computer imaging is not offered by our office since it can provide unrealistic confidence and false hope with expectations which can be impractical. Imaging techniques are artistic but not pragmatic in flesh and blood. We do have a wide selection of our patient’s pre and post operative photos and actual satisfied patients who will discuss their results sensibly.
