Patients that hear about me either through word of mouth or through online research often make the comment that they love the before and afters I’ve posted either on my website or Instagram, as they are incredibly natural. The patients that come see me usually have a very good idea what sort of results they would get from me, which is quite reassuring. It shows me that they have done their research and love the work I do.
What are you the most proud of about your practice?
I met a plastic surgeon that was on the verge of retiring from a very successful 40 year years around the time I started my own practice. His advice to me was to savour the process of starting a practice as it’s not a race, but a marathon. I look back and reflect on the growth my practice has undergone over the past decade plus, and it’s absolutely incredible to realize what I have achieved as a physician. I have patients that not only visit me locally but fly around the world just so I can take care of them. It’s a feeling of gratitude that I just can’t explain. To this day, I take my time with my patients, and enjoy the experience I have with them through their journey in eyelid rejuvenation.
How do you show patients you care post-treatment?
I have a dedicated team of incredibly amazing medical assistants and coordinators that also meet with our patients in addition to myself on the day of our consultation, and guide them through the entire process of preparing them for the surgery and their post operative treatment. From providing their medications before surgery, recommending my ideal post surgery diet/food recommendations for optimal healing, to meeting with them prior to surgery to going over the post operative instructions, we keep the surgery process as seamless and easy for the patient as possible! We keep the line of communication open continually with patients while they heal after their procedure and ensure that not only are they healing successfully, but also that they are happy with the outcome and results.
Is there one procedure, operation or patient that changed your career?
Patient’s biggest fear of eyelid surgery is to come out looking “fake” or “too done” or not looking like themselves. I’ve gained a reputation for providing noticeable results that rejuvenate one's eyes while still leaving them looking natural and like themselves. If it were one procedure that has changed my career, it would be my Natural Looking Blepharoplasty® technique. This procedure is my adaptation or modification of the traditional blepharoplasty surgery, where excess skin and fat pockets around the eye are improved. My Natural Looking Blepharoplasty® technique addresses four areas of eyelid aging while maintaining a natural looking outcome: excess skin, excess fat, loss of volume, and skin texture issues. The Natural Looking Blepharoplasty® technique incorporates fat repositioning (moving excess fat around to areas of hollowing around the eyelids) and eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty to remove fat or skin) with the combined use of either a CO2 laser, chemical peel or microneedling to improve the skin texture. This procedure avoids the need for changing the shape of one's eyelids, dramatically minimizes downtime, optimizes healing and has an incredibly high satisfaction rate from my patients. I’d say that most of the before and afters my patients absolutely love are those that underwent the Natural Looking Blepharoplasty® technique. This procedure has allowed me to expand my level of providing a result that patients can really love and still be comfortable with their appearance with minimal downtime.

We take our time and listen to what our patients’ desires are. I do my best to take care of my patients like my own family.
