About

Bio

I am a private practice plastic and reconstructive surgeon. I am board certified as well as re certified in my main specialty. I specialize in all aspects of cosmetic and aesthetic procedures.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

No Foot approval: Sculptra is FDA approved for HIV lipoatrophy and cosmetic facial enhancement. Any other use would be considered off-label usage. You might find a doctor that would do this but I know of no study or research on the subject of feet fat pad augmentation.

It is cheaper: A panniculectomy is a simpler procedure that a tummy tuck so it is cheaper. A tummy tuck procedure is composed of muscle plication, reset of the belly button and panniculectomy. A complete tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure with more results than a panniculectomy. A panniculectomy is a half done tummy tuck.

Wait for maturity: It is always possible to do a chin augmentation but for a cosmetic correction it would be best if the patient was more mature. You do not want the implant to cause a problem with the growth of the immature bone. This skeletal maturity is about 16 years old in a female and 18 in a male.
