From the Doctor:
“My philosophy is to listen to my patients and achieve a natural-looking result with every surgery and procedure. When it comes to facial rejuvenation and body contouring, I believe less can be more. I also believe the goal is to help patients look like younger versions of themselves while still retaining the facial characteristics that are uniquely theirs.”
“In my practice, we are committed to leading-edge technology and the many ways it can make things simpler and easier for our patients. I spend a lot of time during the consultation process so that I can thoroughly understand what a patient wants to achieve. It’s my job to help manage their expectations, explain the limits of plastic surgery, and partner with them to find the least invasive measures to achieve their goals.”
