About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

“I treat each patient with respect, dignity and humanity. My intention is to not only provide the most sophisticated techniques, but also to understand the particular vision of each one of my patients.

I believe that the successful result in cosmetic plastic surgery is not objective, but subjective. In other words, the successful outcome is not what the plastic surgeon is able to deliver or thinks is best, but instead what patients consider beautiful and desirable. Only by carefully listening to my patients and caring to understand them that I get to offer them what will make them happy. After all, happiness is the reason to get cosmetic plastic surgery.

I feel that when I operate and change someone’s body, I also change their self-image. By changing people’s self-image, I automatically change what is available to them in life and what they can achieve. Self-image controls what we think is possible to achieve. A person, therefore, with a great sense of self-image will accomplish more in life. When I operate on someone’s face then I also change their whole life.

Therefore, I approach my profession with a great sense of responsibility and humility. I consider myself an ethical plastic surgeon, a psychologist, and a servant to my patients. This is how my mentor, Dr. Luis O. Vasconez, trained me and I am grateful to him.”
