Great plastic surgery is understanding what a patient is truly concerned about and clarifying the cause of the concern so that the appropriate solution can be applied. It is the surgeon's skill, experience, and perception that makes all the difference in the final outcome. Safe and artfully skilled surgery yields optimally sculpted bodies and happy patients.
After living outside the state for seven years during my surgical training, I returned to Utah. Family, outdoor beauty, recreational opportunity and autonomy in my practice lured me back. I now have the freedom to follow my dreams of engaging in International humanitarian healthcare and running a successful plastic surgery practice and medical spa. Annually I participate in medical mission trips to places like Ghana, Kenya and China in partnership with the Humanitarian Aid Relief Team. These missions not only change the lives of people receiving the treatment, but also the lives of volunteers, such as myself. It didn't take long to fall in love with plastic surgery after entering medical school. I continue to be drawn to the mix of meticulous surgical technique and artful expression that combine to create excellence for patients. Establishing Aesthetica Plastic Surgery and Aesthetica Medical Spa has brought me even closer to this wonderful community. My wife Katie and I continue to enjoy the friendships we make. This great profession has taught me countless things. But what continues to drive me in my practice is seeing the difference plastic surgery makes in people's lives and the happiness it brings them with renewed confidence.
