About the Practice
Plastic surgery is an important personal decision and event in your life. Enhancing and improving your natural assets are the objective of plastic surgery, so procedures are designed specifically around your needs and desires, keeping in mind what is appropriate for you. This is the guiding principle in my plastic surgery practice: natural, subtle improvements, instead of artificial, radical changes.
Essential to me being able to help you achieve this "better version of you" is understanding your expectations and desires. In general, plastic surgery can make us look and feel younger, eliminate or minimize physical imperfections, and help us be more confident about the way we look. But only through an open, trusting patient-doctor relationship can a doctor come to understand what constitutes a successful outcome in each patient's eyes. This is why I believe that the ultimate success of any plastic surgery procedure begins with your first visit to our office. My goal is to fully understand the results you wish to obtain and to communicate to you what can be achieved through the latest plastic surgery techniques and procedures being performed today. Investing time and effort in building a strong, trusting doctor-patient relationship, one that allows the patient to ask the right questions and to make informed, careful decisions, is simply the best way I know to ensure that you are happy with your results.
I welcome you to come to my office for a consultation and to spend as much time as you need discussing your expectations and desires. We are committed to helping you understand all of your options before you decide what is best for you.
