-What was the reason why you became a plastic surgeon? What do your clients ask for, most of the time? Are your clients mostly male or female? How do you feel about Newsweek magazine awarding you the title of America’s best plastic surgeon for two times in a row?
I became a plastic surgeon because I love the art of the field. Every procedure is a challenge and I find it so fascinating that I can sculpt my patients to achieve what they’ve always wanted to look like or to restore what they used to look like. The specialty is so broad you can do reconstruction or aesthetic plastic surgery. You can operate on children or adults. Every case is different. I get to do what I love everyday. It’s just a great field to be in.
Being included in Best Plastic surgeons by Newsweek was a great feeling. I respect all of the other surgeons on that list. It is a respected publication so I feel it really solidifies how hard I work to maintain the best patient care possible.
I would say my patient population is 80% women, 20% men.
I wouldn’t say there’s one particular thing patients ask most. The most common thing with each patient however is they typically have a person that they aspire to look like after surgery…
