A Minute With

  1. My philosophy
    We believe in spending time to get to know each patient and understand what is important to them. We then spend time doing an analysis on the issues that concern them and formulate a plan that is consistent with their desires and budget
  2. Most memorable patient reaction
    A huge smile followed by, “I can’t believe I waited so long!”
  3. Three words that best describe me
    Passionate, dedicated, personable
  4. Career-defining procedure
    Breast augmentation was and still is my favorite! It has such an impact on a woman’s confidence. The introduction of “Gummy Bear” implants changed my whole practice. I also love the art of injectables for the face and like to layer different products to create a more natural effect
  5. What sets my practice apart
    We offer the highest level of care combined with a full list of services that enable us to treat any concerns or issues that our patients may have
  6. My greatest achievement
    Being the first person in my family to graduate college and medical school and then attending Harvard for my surgical training
  7. The procedure i perform most often
    When I began practicing in 1991, breast augmentation and liposuction were my most popular procedures. While they remain extremely popular, now Botox® and fillers top the list
  8. My motto
    Aging stops here!
  9. The most outrageous medical myth i’ve heard
    That implants need to be replaced every 10 years
  10. The future of my field
    I foresee continued innovations in treatment technologies but also innovations in patient engagement using technology. We’ll be seeing more 3-D imaging, digital projecting, portal apps, direct messaging with providers and sharing of personal stories through social media
  11. How my profession has evolved
    Before, there was no real understanding of how the face aged. Pulling the skin tighter with a facelift was the best way to appear more youthful. This also made the face look very unnatural. We now realize that volume loss is the biggest contributor to facial aging and correct it by utilizing volumizing fillers that allow the face to age gracefully and naturally
  12. My operating room playlist
    Classic rock
  13. What i can’t live without
  14. What is the one thing your practice offers that is really unique?
    We have a full-service cosmetic center that includes our own operating room, the most advanced noninvasive and minimally invasive technologies, a dozen lasers, and a team of experts that works closely with me. Our mission is to give great results and great experiences
  15. Is there one procedure or operation that changed your career?
    We now have InMode’s BodyTite and FaceTite fat-melting and skintightening device. Made especially for plastic surgeons, it allows for dramatic results without the scars and downtime associated with surgery. I haven’t performed a full-blown facelift since!
  16. Why do you employ a less-is-more approach?
    I find most patients want two things: to get the best possible results with the least amount of disruption to their lives, and to look like better versions of themselves. Thanks to great innovation, my team and I are able to give better and better results with less office time, less downtime and less drastic changes
  17. My favorite way to start the day
    With a workout and a coffee
