About

Bio

I am a proud Northwest native and can think of no better place to live. I have been in plastic surgery practice in Seattle since 1988. Many changes in the practice of plastic surgery have occurred during the last 20 plus years. I spend a considerable amount of time evaluating new trends , devices, and procedures in order to keep abreast with changes. This allows me to give patients top quality care that is proven and effective. I try very hard to offer procedures and advice that walks the line between those that work, those that may work, and those that are gimmicky and have little likelihood of improving a patient's situation or appearance. Honesty is truly the best policy and this is what I offer. I perform primarily adult cosmetic surgery and breast reconstruction. The list of procedures includes all facial cosmetic procedures, breast surgery for enlargement, reduction, lifting, and reconstruction, and body cosmetic surgery including tummy tucks, liposuction and body lifts. All surgery is performed in our nationally certified operating room located in our office in The Polyclinic First Hill. Anesthesia services are provide by a board certified anesthesiologist. We have an outstanding safety record that I do not believe can be matched. Our nurses are excellent with years of experience in plastic surgery. The front office staff works hard to help coordinate the experience and facilitate scheduling appointments. Surgery scheduling is flexible and we will do our best to work with your schedule. My outside interest include hiking and back-packing, fishing, carpentry and wood-working, and I love snow sports. My winters are generally spent in the mountains skiing, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. I even manage to get in some ice-fishing now and then. My favorite music is blues. I have two adult boys who make me very proud and a wonderful wife.

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.
