Your surgeon has blue hair

For years, I have wanted to add some vibrant color into my now graying hair.  I have resisted for years and years.  Why?  How many plastic surgeons do you know with blue hair?  I worried about what my colleagues might say, but I worried more about what my patients might say if my image did …

Something truly amazing happened today…

Something truly amazing happened today. I can’t take my eyes off of my own face. For as long as I can remember, I haven’t liked my reflection. Plagued with acne as early as eight years old, I endured years of cystic acne treatments including two rounds of Accutane, injections, extractions, freezing, and UV light therapy.   …


Just Ask

Just Ask The Internet is a tool that has become invaluable. Access to a world of medical information at a moment’s notice is now the norm. Many of my patients have done a good amount of online research before we have even met. They are informed and ready to hear more about their procedure of …
