Why do you employ a less-is-more philosophy? 

Aging gracefully should be embraced, however, slowing the process is our goal. It is unnatural to look over-tightened, over-filled, and over-done. Subtle changes are the key to avoiding looking odd, and the solution is to begin with quality skincare and treatments to maintain a youthful look with surgery the last resort.

How does someone know if it’s time for a facelift? 

There comes a time when treatments have maximized their effectiveness—the skin is too loose, and a person looks tired or angry when they are not! If the forehead also feels too heavy, then a facelift may be the best solution to give you a rested and youthful appearance.

What part of cosmetic surgery do you love the most?

Helping mommies get bikini-ready. Sometimes patients can only do so much for themselves with dieting and exercising (which doesn’t help stretched out tissues). It is so rewarding to help a patient achieve her pre-baby shape once again—Mommy Makeovers help perk up breasts and flatten tummies once again.
