About

Bio

I've dedicated the last 25 years of my career in medicine to the art and science of aesthetic plastic surgery. I've received triple board certifications including American Board of Head and Neck Surgery, American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery, and American Board of Plastic Surgery. As a co-founder, I currently practice at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) in Houston, TX. We use the latest advances to offer our patients the best techniques for their surgical and cosmetic 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.
