“Part of the joy of my job is understanding that every patient represents a unique person with whom I get to join and guide on the road toward beauty. Indeed, melting the subjectivity of the patient’s desires with the objectivity of aesthetic standards is the true art of plastic surgery. And it is a true honor to get to practice that art for my patients. I hope we are all continuously striving toward the good, the true, and the beautiful, but I can help with the beautiful part.”
