Is medicine more of an art than a science? In the field of plastic surgery, it is a collaboration of the two that produces the most natural and successful results. At a young age, I excelled at art with natural talents in drawing and sculpting but I knew that I would go to medical school to use my hands to help others. It was during my first week of medical school that I discovered this harmonious balance of science and art with my introduction into the discipline of plastic surgery. After undergoing more than nine years of surgical training, I decided to give something back. With careful consideration of what organization could best use my services, I offered my surgical expertise to Operation Smile for a year to change the lives of those born in India with cleft lip and palate.
Prior to moving to the San Diego area, I was an assistant professor of surgery teaching the next generation of plastic surgeons and expanding my practice. Initially specializing in pediatric plastic surgery, I found it incredibly rewarding to have such a huge impact on a young patient for his or her entire life. Over time, I have transitioned to treating adults with the same diligence and attention to detail that provides impactful and life-changing results.
There has been a tremendous surge in technological breakthroughs in plastic surgery that are less invasive, thus increasing the number of options and choices for a patient. I am able to provide my patients with a fully customized treatment plan to yield life-changing results. Whether you seek a restorative procedure, want to enhance your natural beauty or simply aim to turn back the effects of aging to match your internal age clock, I specialize in creating a custom treatment plan to provide the individual results best suited for you.
I understand how navigating the sea of extraordinary claims in the arena of plastic surgery can be a challenge. I have witnessed firsthand how other practices provide clients with a one-size-fits-all approach to their specific needs. I am different and understand that you are unique and so are your individual needs. I invest the extra time needed to listen to your issues, concerns and ultimate desires. My dedication to an individual approach as well as treating clients like family is the key to successful outcomes, time and time again!
