Plastic surgery is a highly specialized area of medicine dealing with the mind and body. I believe the goal of cosmetic plastic surgery should be to bring one’s self-image and body-image into better balance; and by so doing, improve one’s self-esteem.
The success of your elective procedure is greatly dependent upon the plastic surgeon you choose. Each aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery patient has his or her unique reason for pursuing surgery, and it is a very personal one. Some patients are motivated to alter an undesirable physical feature either inherited or acquired, while others simply want to refresh features that have aged over time. My approach to you, the patient, is a highly personalized one. I want to spend ample time with you to fully address your concerns and establish trust in me and the office staff.
My initial consultation with you and subsequent visits will focus on your concerns and expectations. I will make every effort to lend a sensitive ear to your needs. I will then carefully assess, in a private professional manner, those physical features bothersome to you. Together we will proceed in developing a mutually agreed upon treatment plan. It is imperative that realistic goals and expectations be established prior to surgery. It has been my experience that a highly self-motivated, well-informed and realistic cosmetic patient is generally a pleased patient. My commitment is to deliver exceptional cosmetic plastic surgery results that exceed expectations in a safe and comfortable environment and to have a happy, satisfied patient whenever possible. It is important to keep in mind that results may vary from patient to patient given the uniqueness of each individual’s physical characteristics and needs. This surgery is offered at affordable prices with payment options that will accommodate most patients’ budgets.
My staff and I fully understand that exceptional plastic surgery requires more than board certification alone. Other ingredients must include artistry, attention to detail, compassion, effective communication, self-discipline, experience, integrity, respect for privacy, skillful and delicate application of surgical techniques, natural appearing results, and extensive, ongoing subspecialty training in the field of aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery.
As a seasoned surgeon, with over nineteen years experience in plastic surgery; I firmly believe that your surgical result is not an end in itself, but rather a means to an end-that is to say, to help you achieve a happy, healthy and productive life.
To complement your result, our office encourages lifestyle changes when necessary, including proper nutrition, regular and age appropriate exercise, stress reduction and skin care. My staff and I welcome an ongoing relationship in helping you attain your lifelong BEST IMAGE!

Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Tips
Here are some tips to help you achieve a satisfying experience with your cosmetic or plastic surgery.
Preparing for Surgery
Talk to your physician and make sure you understand all the risks associated with any procedure you are considering – both common and uncommon risks. Make sure you are comfortable with the risks before proceeding.
Be completely forthright with your physician about your medical history and status. Something you may consider minor could significantly impact the success of your procedure.
Obtain pre-surgery or pre-procedure instructions from your physician no less than two weeks prior to the scheduled date. Some pre-surgical actions, in particular, such as not smoking or taking ibuprofen products, may require two weeks of time to be effective. Make sure you read all pre-procedure instructions in advance and adhere to them completely. Any exceptions or variations may require you to reschedule your procedure.
Ask for post-surgical instructions before you go for your procedure so that you can prepare by purchasing any prescriptions and supplies. This way you’ll have everything you need on hand as soon as you return home.
Line up a friend or family member to take you to and from your procedure if any form of anesthesia is being used. You won’t be allowed to leave without someone to drive you home and you’ll probably need the help for the first 24 hours.
Be sure to get specific, written instructions from your physician before leaving the facility on how to manage your condition for at least one week.
Be sure your caretaker knows where all prescriptions and supplies are located to help you out. Also make sure that individual has emergency telephone numbers for your physician, pharmacy and local hospital.
Follow the post-procedure instructions to the letter. Many cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures involve bruised or swollen skin, which can be very sensitive.
Be conservative about your recovery. Don’t return to work earlier than projected. Anesthesia tends to tire patients out longer than they expect. Also, go back to sport and strenuous activities when instructed. Be protective of the physical part of your body treated until it is fully healed.
During and after your recovery, make sure you get the most from your procedure by eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, protecting your skin from sun damage at all times and taking care of your body every day.
