My goal is to make this a positive experience for the patient -- from the moment one calls the office to schedule an appointment through the surgery and postoperative period. Plastic surgery affords patients a remarkable opportunity to enhance their appearance. My staff and I will do everything in our power to make your surgical experience the best one possible.
My surgical approach relies upon exceptional doctor/patient communication. It is essential that you and I understand well your expectations of the surgery you're contemplating as well as the realistic surgical outcomes. Perhaps in no other field of medicine is good physician-patient communication as important as in this one where procedures are elective and results so critical to one's appearance.
Each plastic surgeon adheres to his or her own aesthetic philosophy which defines the cosmetic objectives of the procedure. It is my belief that the optimum result is a naturally beautiful appearance. If it is obvious that the patient has had surgery, the procedure has not been performed well.
During office consultations, the patient and I review carefully his or her reasons for seeking the surgery, the cosmetic possibilities that may be achieved through surgery, possible complications that may arise, as well as postoperative and recuperative information. As the patient, it is your responsibility to outline clearly your expectations of the surgery, so that I can insure they are realistic and surgically feasible. With excellent communication, our collective goal as surgeon and patient can be achieved.
We look forward to meeting you!
