What does your practice offer?
I offer cosmetic and reconstructive surgery as well as invasive and non-invasive procedures, including laser procedures, injectables, skin cancer reconstruction, trauma and scar revision. Surgically, I’m especially known for facelifts, eyelid surgery and skin cancer reconstruction.

What contributes to your success?
I’m double board-certified in both otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery. When it comes to cosmetic surgery, I have a “less is more” approach. Patients can be afraid of an unnatural result, but I pride myself in offering rejuvenation that is both youthful and natural. I try to thoroughly educate my patients and provide them with realistic expectations, which I think they all appreciate.

How has your field changed?
I believe social media has resulted in a surge in cosmetic procedures throughout the world. People are becoming more willing to undergo surgery and laser procedures, and with this change comes a demand for preventative options. This includes earlier use of Botox, facelifts and better skin care to prevent the unwanted effects of aging.

Where is the field going from here?
I think microneedling and advances in laser technology are the most exciting parts of the recent growth in the field, but it continues to evolve.
