As a board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston, Texas, it is my singular goal to bring the benefits of plastic surgery to those who need it, and contrary to what you may have seen or heard, it can be for almost everyone.
At first glance, plastic surgery may seem complicated, confusing, and mysterious. As a conscientious surgeon, my role is to help you understand whatever it is that you may need or want and whatever solutions that the art of plastic surgery may provide from breast augmentation, breast reconstructive surgery, to liposuction —in a way that makes sense and in a language that you understand.
There are many plastic surgeons to choose from, and before settling on one, I believe it is critical that you should feel comfortable with both their skills and the way they treat you. I'm confident that after a visit to my office, you will not need to travel any further.It is the ability to help people feel better about themselves that drew me to a career in plastic surgery.
