About My Practice
What are your most requested procedures?
A majority of our patients seek me out for my skill and experience in breast procedures, including augmentations and lifts. A popular request I receive from patients is for a more “natural look” versus an overly enhanced one. My subpectoral techniques and the diverse types of implants available today allow for a much more natural look to be achieved.
How does your staff enhance the patient experience?
Our friendly, welcoming staff treats patients like family and makes them feel at ease. This is especially important because our patients need to feel comfortable while they are making key choices about their health and appearance.
Tell us about your background.
Before opening my Orange County practice, I studied plastic and reconstructive surgery at the prestigious University of California at Los Angeles.
Why did you become a plastic surgeon?
I thoroughly enjoyed the exposure to plastic surgery that I gained during my medical school training, in which I witnessed many incredible outcomes. It truly is the most rewarding thing to be able to help a patient achieve their aesthetic goals, and as a result, enhance their self-esteem.

- What is unique about your approach to using Botox® & fillers?What our experts say:
My patients know me as having a soft touch with injectables, which means I don’t “overfill” in order to create a refreshed, youthful appearance. A more natural look overall is definitely the current trend, and patients really seem to enjoy the subtle approach I take to improving their looks without making them look “overdone.”
