In all of my years of practice, I’ve staked my work on one guiding principle: my belief that plastic surgery is a people business. How could it not be? People come to us from all walks of life looking for a solution to troubles that they have been unable to overcome through any other means they’ve tried. These troubles may be mental, like in the case of low self-esteem, or they might be physical, as in the case of back troubles stemming from breasts that need a reduction. Regardless of the nature of their problem, every single patient is unique, and in order to give them the care they require, we always need to treat them as such.
