Why did you choose to study in plastic surgery?
What is your favorite part of being a plastic surgeon?
I feel honored to have been given the opportunity to use my surgical skills to enhance a person’s quality of life. I love knowing my patients trust me to give them the absolute best results. I love being in the operating room and performing intricate techniques during surgery. Many of my patients have been coming to me for over 15 years, allowing me to create personal relationships with them and their extended family.
If you could give potential patients one piece of advice while they are searching for a surgeon, what would it be?
I recommend researching before your first visit. Making sure they are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons. Additionally, if you are having a cosmetic procedure check to see if they are a member of The Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. The Aesthetic Society has specific requirements regarding the number of cosmetic cases surgeons must perform to be considered for membership. Therefore, surgeons accepted into the society have been verified and therefore operate at a higher level than others. When you meet with a surgeon, I recommend having a list of questions you want answered. Having a list of questions ensures nothing is missed during the meeting. Also, be sure to have looked at several “dream” photos to choose what kind of look you want. For the best results, get comfortable with your surgeon! Always remember that the first operation gives you the best chance of getting your optimal results.
