About My Practice
What are your most request procedures?
The short-scar facelift, upper and lower eyelid surgery, mid-facelifts or cheek lifts, and necklifts. After facial surgeries I would say Mommy Makeovers are the most popular.
What is your motto?
It’s all about the patient.

A Minute With
What about your practice makes you the proudest?
I am proudest of the environment that we create here. My staff and I are very down to Earth. I think a lot of people get intimidated going to medical offices, let alone plastic surgery offices, and we try to keep our egos in check. We really try to make it about the patient, not us.
Was there a career-defining procedure that has influenced you?
I trained at a very reputable well-established post-surgery fellowship, but the one thing I noticed is that nobody was doing minimally invasive procedures. Everything was the full scar— for breast reductions and facelifts—and of course I would read anything I could get my hands on. I kept looking at Europe and Dr. Lassus doing all these short scar breast lifts and reductions and it really got me down this path of doing the least invasive thing I can do for people.
How do you manage patient expectations?
By repeating everything repeatedly in person and writing. We want to have consistent messaging and branding, but also, we believe in repetition. They say patients remember half of what you tell them, so if I've sat there for an hour in a consultation about x, y, and z, it doesn't mean they're going to remember. It’s my responsibility at the preoperative visit and the day of surgery to repeat until they get it.
What is your dream innovation?
A way to do surgery without creating any scar.
What surgical advancement are you most excited about?
Technology, because while we still call people the day before a procedure or appointment, getting text message and email reminders, being able to receive pathology reports and lab results electronically, all of these are a great way to keep in touch with patients and improve the patient experience. Our in-office forms are done through Advanced MD, so patients can do it all on their iPhone, Android or desktop to save time. It’s just part of making the experience easier for people.
