"I am dedicated to providing the highest level of surgical care to my patients, combining state-of-the-art techniques and knowledge with genuine and personalized care to all. I am extremely interested in exploring the desires and expectations of all patients—I use the pre-surgical consultation to do so in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Whether dealing with the specific concerns of a patient or deciding on a patient’s post-operative breast size, I allow patients to openly discuss their expectations and then formulate this into achieving a common goal. After surgery, patients can expect to be closely monitored throughout the recovery process, and my team and I are available to answer any questions that a patient might have".
