Personal Life

“Plastic surgery is a most rewarding, gratifying, and intimate occupation because I am able to help my patients obtain a goal. For some, the goal may be functional, such as helping an arthritic patient regain the use of their hands, and for others, the goal may be cosmetic. We are all human and have some degree of vanity. Whether you are 20 or 80, that doesn’t change. Most cosmetic patients say to me, ‘I am 50, but I feel like I’m still 30.’ I try to help bridge that gap.”
