I am committed to elevate the standard of patient care and safety through my work as a plastic surgeon. I constantly strive for surgical excellence. My commitment to my patients is to offer individualized care that focuses on the whole person - both physically and emotionally.
As an artist, a woman and a surgeon, I am passionate about combining my artistic creativity, my aesthetic sensibilities and my anatomical knowledge when caring for my patients. My passion is to work with my patients to help them achieve beautiful, natural-looking results.
If I weren't a plastic surgeon I would have been a concert pianist and an architect.
After exploring music and nutrition, I decided to become a plastic surgeon. It allowed me to impact people's lives in a meaningful way while balancing my scientific and my artistic proclivities.
One thing I've learned from my patients is humility.
The best thing I've done for my health is adopting a plant-based diet, committing to a daily yoga practice. And smiling.
