About

Bio

I am a board-certified plastic surgeon in private practice in San Diego, California since 1999. I specialize in both cosmetic and reconstructive 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.
