About

Bio

I am a plastic and reconstructive surgeon specializing in breast surgery (cosmetic and reconstructive), body contouring, facial rejuvenation surgery, and microsurgery. I believe in using the latest surgical approaches to achieve the most optimal outcome for patients.

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.
