About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

"As an expert in the field of plastic surgery, one of the most rewarding aspects of my career has been listening to my patients' stories about how having plastic surgery has changed their lives. Seeing both men and women after surgery gain a new found confidence in themselves is truly remarkable. The journey to become a plastic surgeon is a long one, and along the way I have worked with some of the most recognized talents in the field. I think educating is very important, and I have paid this forward in many different ways by teaching other plastic surgeons as well as educating patients through articles, interviews and social media."
