About

Bio

I have practiced aesthetic plastic surgery for 2+ decades - certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery, and American Board of Otolaryngology. I taught in 2 surgical departments at Manhattan Eye & Ear Hospital. Recent Awards: Top Doctors of Las Vegas. I have also was a visiting professor at Parkland Hospital (University of Texas, Southwestern) in 2008. And I was on the clinical teaching staff at Manhattan Eye & Ear in both the Department of Plastic Surgery and the Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery.

Specialties
