In Washington, DC patients seek subtle, refined and nuanced results to portray themselves to best advantage. My patient's seek to be an improved version of themselves, not to be extremely altered. A perfect surgical result sparks in observers the sub-conscious reaction "this person looks much better but I'm not sure why." I endeavor to achieve this goal for each patient.
My consultative time is unhurried, so that you have a clear understanding and expectation. My surgical results are impeccable, and patients enjoy long-lasting improvements with minimal, hidden scars and the least down time possible. My care is exceptional: my staff and I provide step-by-step guidance for optimal healing and a smooth recovery. I carefully plan my unique approach for each patient. The artistry of my work is to restore a rested, natural appearance rather than to smooth every wrinkle or change one's identity. Surgery is not a small undertaking, and you'll support and care that is unparalleled.
