My plastic surgery practice involves all aspects of plastic surgery; cosmetic, reconstructive and hand surgical procedures.  My main goal is to make you as beautiful as you can be. That's why I take great care to thoroughly understand all of your expectations to achieve your desired results. Plastic surgery is an intensely personal choice, and you, the patient, need to be well informed in order to make the proper decision for yourself.
Tuesday: 3:00 - 6:00 pm
Thursday: 3:00 - 6:00 pm

facial rejuvenation (face lift, eyelid surgery, neck lift, Botox and injectables), correction of deformities (rhinoplasty, otoplasty i.e. correction of prominent ears) body contouring (liposuction, abdominoplasty, thigh lift, arm lift and buttocks augmentation) and breast surgery (breast lift, breast reduction or breast augmentation and correction of male breast deformities).

The goal of the consultation from your standpoint is to obtain answers to questions that may be more or less clearly formulated in your mind. I will help you clarify and discuss all the issues.

1) What procedure if any will address my concerns? 2) What does this procedure consist of? 3) How will it incorporate with my social & professional life? 4) How much does it cost? 5) Do I trust the physician in front of me to do the procedure well, does he understand what i want, and does he care enough about me?

I will determine what you like to achieve. I will discuss your options. I will go into detail about the procedure, detailed written information is supplied, and an exact quote is given. It will be up to you to decide whether, like many others, you can trust me.
I perform most of my cosmetic procedures in the outpatient setting of the hospital. We have been able to negociate financial packages more competitive than surgicenters, and with the added safety and resources, I feel it is a plus for my patients.
