“As a surgeon, being part of someone’s surgical journey is extremely rewarding on many levels. Patients allow themselves to be vulnerable, self-conscious, and even sometime embarrassed. They trust me for a moment in their life to be helped. We are in the 21st century and vanity is still equated with plastic surgery. It is so much more than that. Every day I get to witness the power of matching someone’s inside to their outside. “Don’t judge the book by its cover” popular adage most definitely applies here. Why living your life not feeling your best about yourself? If you can fix it, improve it and show it, simply put I will ask why not? I believe that you should put your best face forward. I dedicated years of training to the face and neck, knowing that a surgeon should properly focus on one field in order to be truly exceptional.
