Physician’s Statement: “Facial plastic surgery and facial cosmetic care is an area of my practice that I find very rewarding and exciting. It gives me a chance to interact with patients who are seeking specific changes in their appearance. I prefer to meet with each patient in a relaxed initial consultation and start from basic concepts in creating a plan of skin care and facial rejuvenation uniquely suited to each individual. This includes talking about nutrition, exercise, and general health interventions in tailoring an optimal treatment program. The patient’s desires and goals are ultimately the most important in the plan. I view the treatment as a continuum of care with many different options that continues throughout the patient’s treatment with me. It is very important to work together towards realistic goals in meeting each patient’s cosmetic needs. I have a broad range of experience in invasive and non-invasive techniques and our practice offers the latest in technology, products, and interventions available to that end.”
