"I've always had good manual dexterity and I'm a perfectionist, so cosmetic facial surgery is a perfect fit. My philosophy is to achieve a natural result with every surgery and procedure – I believe less can be more. I also think the goal of cosmetic surgery is to help patients look like younger, more attractive versions of themselves.
"This is a very creative field that blends art and science. I love the fact that it is primarily elective – patients come to me not because they have to but because they want to make a positive change. It's very rewarding to see the gratitude in someone's eyes when you've been able to fulfill their expectations and improve their self-image."

His patients appreciate his honesty and his ability to make them look like younger, more attractive versions of themselves.
