A Letter to My Patients

Often I get asked what I like most about being a plastic surgeon, you may think the answer would be the challenge and satisfaction of doing that perfect surgery. No, what I love the most is the interaction with my patients, listening to them and helping them achieve their goals. There is no greater reward than to see a patient whose life and confidence have been transformed with surgery. I’m humbled every time so I want to thank all my patients for their trust and for allowing me to be a part of their journey.
