I am always surprised at how even slight external improvement can positively affect my patient’s confidence and personality The elective and personal nature of cosmetic surgery demands that we handle the process with care, safety and prudence(Intelligence). I consider each patient’s needs and desires and handle each procedure in a customized fashion to ensure personalization and natural results.

A truly remarkable plastic surgeon does not perform impossible procedures, but rather provides the best information, advice and guidance to his patients and performs the most appropriate procedure(s) based on the patient’s desires and the specifics of each case. My training and experience in plastic surgery allow me to visualize the results for each patient and predict the outcome of specific procedures.

I believe the initial consultation is a serious part and I provide sufficient time to spend with each individual. I listen carefully to each patient’s concerns, needs and purpose. My ability to contribute and help achieve each person’s individual meaning of beauty can only be accomplished when my patients are well informed of the surgical process, procedures and options. Often, there are many surgical options available. however, these options vary with respect to recovery, risk, cost and results. I explore these options with each patient during their consultation because my staff and I are committed to educating our patients to make sure they are able to make truly informed decisions. Together, in the initial discussion, we determine a safe, reasonable plan to follow.

My objective is to provide you with an improved normal appearance through my meticulous (Accurate) attention to detail and pursuit of perfection for each individual. These factors emphasize my commitment to thorough initial consultations, pre-operative instruction and post-operative care. I would be delighted to meet with you and speak with you regarding your personal purpose.
