Practice Philosophy

I have been practicing aesthetic plastic surgery for 27 years. I like to carefully listen to the patient's request, I study his/her body language, I learn about his/her lifestyle, goals and wishes. I learn as much as I can about the patient's body image. I never suggest to "fix" any area unless the patient inquires about it. I advise about the best procedure to achieve the best final look.

I like when my patients look natural and the operated area totally fits the rest of their body. I spend 45 minutes on the initial consultation and another 30 minutes on subsequent consultation before I perform the surgery requested.

Consultations

When you come for a consultation, the first person you will meet is Nicole, my welcoming and pleasant secretary at the front desk. You will fill out the papers she gives you and she will then usher you to the consultation room. There, she will introduce you to my very enthusiastic and warm medical assistant, Jackie. Jackie wa a medic in the air force and is fun and very capable and mostly very organized. She will interview you and fill out a consultation form. Eventually she will take preoperative photos should you decide to have the surgery and you will also see her right before the surgical procedure and postoperatively on some of the follow-up visits. She will answer many of your questions and be a support to you during your preoperative and postoperative period. I will then see you in consultation and we will discuss your desires, concerns, medical problems, fears, expectations, and various ways and possibilities to achieve your goals. We will decide together what procedure you should have, to help you realize your wishes and then discuss the preoperative, postoperative management, anesthesia, best facility to perform the procedure in (office or Hosp)and whether you will need a special postoperative nurse to go home with you for a day or two. We will discuss pain management what are the possibilities of complications and what are the realistic goals that you will achieve. The number of office visits as well as the time when you can resume your routine activities will also be discussed. You will then see Dee. She is the most pleasant, and lovely patient coordinator. She will explain the fees to you, tell you what preoperative medical tests you need, may go through pre and postoperative pictures of the procedure, and will also schedule the procedure and help with the initial paper work. Anita, my very experienced, capable and caring nurse practicioner will see you next. She is extremely talented and she is both a nurse practicioner and our skin specialist. She will answer more of your medical questions and will walk you through the presurgical process. She may also start you on a presurgical skin treatment which will help with postoperative healing and eventual maintenance of your surgical results. Her skin is flawless and she sets an example of what a perfect skin treatment regimen can do for you. After your surgery, you will see my nurse Anita again and or Jackie. She will take care of your surgical site and answer all your questions. You may also then meet Kathy. She has been with us for 24 years and is our account manager. She will help you with filing any insurance forms if applicable and will answer all your billing questions. If you have surgery in the office you will meet our capable, experienced and caring anesthesiologists who work with us 3 days every week for the past 18 years. They make your anesthesia safe and pleasant and make sure that you will feel well enough to go home soon after the procedure. You will also meet Gina our surgical technician, who will further explain to you OR procedure and will help set up the OR for your procedure. Of course, you will meet other nurses as well. Those who will be with you during your surgery, those who will take care of you in the recovery room and those who may go home with you if you choose, and stay with you till you feel safe enough to be home alone. I know you will like everyone on my staff, just like I do. They will make you feel secure and welcomed. Most of all you will love your results, natural, refreshed, and uplifting.
