Care Philosophy

As a cosmetic surgeon my philosophy is that good patient-doctor communication is paramount to understanding a patient’s goals for cosmetic improvements. Patient safety is my highest priority while at the same time providing the best achievable result. I consider all aspects of surgical care from choosing my staff to medications, operating room safety and postoperative care. My goal is to achieve an aesthetic balance in one’s appearance. It should be apparent that you look better but not apparent that you have had plastic surgery.

Patients say that I have a non-intimidating manner that makes it easy to communicate with me. This is exceedingly important to me because there should be no barrier when discussing realistic expectations, risks, or the course of your recovery. This barrier-free communication helps us reach a practical and rational surgical plan that ends in outstanding results.

I chose cosmetic surgery because I am fascinated by the technical aspects as well as the fact that in order to become an excellent surgeon, one must master being an excellent physician. Cosmetic surgery also requires artistic talent. This appeals to me as I appreciate that each individual is different, challenging me to think outside the box since no two procedures or patients are the same. Being a surgeon has been a life long dream. All the years of my surgical training and patient interaction have propelled me towards my passion for cosmetic surgery and understanding that each individual is beautiful and unique in their own way.

I absolutely love what I do, and one of the most rewarding aspects of this is hearing from patients how a cosmetic procedure I have performed has helped enhance their own self confidence. If this drives any one patient toward fulfilling a lifelong dream, or just stepping out of their comfort zone because they suddenly feel confident enough, then I am fulfilled. That is what makes my profession as a cosmetic surgeon fulfilling every day!
