About

Bio

I am a plastic and reconstructive surgeon at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School. My practice focus is on nose/nasal surgery (rhinoplasty) and functional rhinoplasty, breast reconstruction, and body contouring (after weight loss). I am involved in the teaching of plastic surgery residents and fellows.
