My thoughts on the nature of Plastic Surgery....


 

“Great plastic surgery is more than a medical technique; rather, it blends an artist’s appreciation of the human form with superior surgical skill.

 

"With full consideration of the whole person, the surgeon should work with the patient to fulfill his or her desire to look natural, feel better and enjoy optimal results.” 

"The patient deserves an outcome that complements his or her underlying personality and positive individual physical attributes.  The notion that plastic surgery simply stretches, tucks or augments the body does not do justice to what can be achieved when the physician truly listens and learns about his patient’s wants and needs.
