My philosophy as a plastic surgeon is that whether a patient is here for a functional issue or a cosmetic concern from the start she is an active and vital member of her own care team. Every effort will be made to listen to patient’s concerns and goals, and together come up with a plan to achieve them. I strive to create an environment built on trust and compassion where patients feel open and relaxed during their preoperative, surgical and postoperative care. Plastic surgery is a multifaceted specialty and requires a great deal of attention to the smallest of details for the best results. I am committed to providing this type of excellent care while always treating a patient like I would a member of my own family.
