Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ablaza ""Only one out of ten plastic surgeons are women like myself. I know that my perspective and sensitivities are different than my male colleagues. Not surprisingly, there are things that my female patients will tell me that they would never tell a man, especially about their bodies. But surprisingly, many men also prefer the insight and perspective a female surgeon provides.""
