Director & Plastic Surgeon
“Plastic surgery is about empowering patients. Whether recovering from an accident, a chronic condition, or a cosmetic concern, plastic surgery has a way of enhancing self-esteem. It’s a balance between form and function; it’s detailed-orientated and artistic. The term plastic surgery is derived from the Greek ‘to mold’. It has an ability to transform and make anew.”
