About My Practice

What percentage of your breast augmentation patients select silicone gel implants over saline implants?

Over 95 percent of my breast augmentation patients select silicone gel implants over saline implants. The FDA approved the return of silicone gel breast implants, clearing them for augmentation and reconstruction procedures eight years ago. Most patients select silicone gel implants because they offer a more natural feel. Some patients prefer the newly FDA-approved cohesive silicone gel “Gummy Bear” implants for a more natural look.

What is a useful beauty tip for our readers?

A warm smile can instantly enhance your appearance and bring out your natural beauty.

What is the right age to undergo eyelid rejuvenation?

Periorbital aging or aging of the eyes and brow is usually one of the first areas to reveal signs of premature aging. This can occur for many in their late 30s and early 40s. Aging around the eyes may manifest itself by a droopy brow or hooding, excess skin on the upper and lower lids and even protruding fat. Many patients will benefit from an endoscopic browlift and an upper and lower blepharoplasty. However, each patient presents with an individual set of circumstances and may only require one of these components by itself.

A Minute With

  1. Three words that best describe me

    Calm, confident, caring

  2. What sets my practice apart

    We offer a full suite of surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for both facial rejuvenation and body contouring

  3. The most outrageous medical myth i’ve heard

    Massaging your breasts following breast augmentation will keep your breasts soft

  4. The biggest misconception about my field

    Some patients do not understand the level
    of training a board- certified plastic surgeon has actually undergone

  5. My motto

    Do what is best
    for the patient

  6. My dream innovation

    An excellent treatment for stretch marks

  7. My greatest achievement

    Twenty-three years of marriage and
    raising three kids with my wife Nina

  8. When you know you’re ready for surgery

    When you feel you can’t get the result you desire on your own

  9. What nonsurgical trends are you seeing at your practice?

    In addition to our patients who come
    in for a “liquid facelift,” we are also
    seeing patients who are interested in
    nonsurgical facial rejuvenation with
    CO2RE® CO2 laser resurfacing,
    Profound RF microneedling with
    radio frequency and Ultherapy
    microfocused ultrasounds. For body
    contouring, many patients are seeing
    results with our new EMSCULPT
    procedure. Additionally, a number
    of postpartum patients are seeking
    nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation

  10. What is a “liquid facelift?”

    Nonsurgical facial rejuvenation with
    the aid of neuromodulators such as
    Botox Cosmetic or Xeomin along with
    fillers such as Juvéderm Voluma,
    Vollure and Volbella; and Restylane,
    Restylane Silk, Defyne and Refyne.
    I utilize microcannulas for many
    areas so that my patients experience
    very little discomfort or bruising

  1. Can I have my saline breast implants removed and then replaced with new silicone ones through the armpit incision (which is how they were put in 11 years ago)?
    What our experts say:

    Yes, that is possible depending on somebody who feels comfortable with the trans-axillary approach, and as long as you don't have capsular contractures or require a lift.

  2. How can I tell if I need a breast lift, a breast lift and breast implants or just breast implants? Is there an easy formula?
    What our experts say:

    You can simulate a lift by elevating your breasts or nipple areola and see if it feels like it's the appropriate amount of volume that you want to have. And once you see if that's an appropriate decision, if you don't feel it's enough volume, then an implant will be required. In some patients who may be deflated but don't need a lift all they need is an implant to help give them the shape and perk up their breasts. Other patients may have been deflated but also the nipple and areola are too low relative to the fold in the crease then they need a lift in conjunction with the implant.

  3. Is there more than one way to do a butt augmentation?
    What our experts say:

    Generally speaking, a butt augmentation is either done with a patient's own fatty tissue with fat grafting or with buttock implants which are silicone based implants. Brazilian butt diffuser refers to fat transfers to the buttocks. The fat is from your own body and combined with liposuction so the issue is you have to make sure you have enough extra fatty tissue that you can make a difference to the buttocks. So the issue becomes difficult because many of the patients we see in Southern California who desire a butt augmentation don't have much fatty tissue so if they don't have enough fatty tissue then the only option is a butt implant.

  4. Is a facelift only for wrinkles? What else does it correct and where are the scars
    What our experts say:

    No I wouldn't say a facelift is for wrinkles. A facelift is for re-draping of looser, lax tissues involving the skin and the underlying fatty muscle layer called the SMAS.

  5. Can I have a baby after tummy tuck or breast implant or breast lift?
    What our experts say:

    You can have a baby after a breast augmentation or abdominoplasty. We have patients who had breast augmentation earlier in life and then have a baby following that. Sometimes they don't need to have anything further done but sometimes they might need to change the implants to a slightly larger size. Sometimes they might require a mastopexy or breast lift. As far as an abdominoplasty is concerned, in general we don't recommend someone getting an abdominoplasty if they know they're going to have additional children, especially in the upcoming few years because it doesn't inhibit you from having a child but getting pregnant again will dramatically affect the appearance of your abdomen.


From the bottom of my heart...

Anonymous Patient
"“I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your amazing work. Although it has only been 2 weeks, I know that I am FINALLY happy and couldn’t look or feel any better. You and all of your staff are so great, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience or result. From the first day that I met you I knew that you would change my life. After 2 surgeries I had lost hope of ever loving my body again and felt as though I should have never had surgery to begin with. I can now say that I can look in the mirror and not cry, I absolutely love my new breasts! Thank you for your kindness and for taking the time that you did to reassure me that you could fix what my previous Doctor couldn’t. I am forever grateful to you – thank you, thank you, thank you, you are truly a one of a kind Doctor.”"
