About My Practice
How do you make patients feel confident in their choices?
During consultations, I spend a majority of time educating the patient in a relaxed, nonpressured discussion about how we can achieve the desired attractiveness they are seeking. Along with my very supportive and friendly staff, we design an individualized plan that can achieve the restoration and maintenance of their desired look. Because this is truly a dynamic form of art, the plan is always being reevaluated to fit the changing needs of the patient and as new treatment modalities become available.
How do you determine a patient's ideal facial proportions?
To maximize each individual’s beauty potential, I use calipers to map the patient’s face based on the golden ratio in order to create a proportionate and elegant shape. The mapping also shows both myself and the patient other ways we can improve their proportions, as well as make the face look softer and less tired.
Why are less invasive procedures so popular?
The rise in these procedures continues because patients are consistently happy with their results. And although these less-invasive techniques can also be expensive, they most often offer less downtime and can be done in stages to spread out the cost.
In what ways do you share your expertise with others?
I have lectured worldwide on a variety of topics, as well as been selected by many aesthetic companies to consult on new treatments and devices. I am also honored to be repeatedly chosen by our local WPLG Channel 10 as their expert dermatologist.
Why did you choose to pursue dermatology?
Even though I found all aspects of medicine interesting, I was most fascinated by the largest organ of the body: the skin. The cosmetic aspect of dermatology has also always been extremely fulfilling, as my passion is to bring out the beauty in each individual.
