“Plastic surgery is not an easy fix or an isolated experience. I always encourage my patients to be actively involved in the entire process. The more involved patients are, the better the surgical outcome and the more satisfied they are with their results. Plastic surgery is a lifelong commitment and should be partnered with efforts to improve the quality of one’s life. It’s a privilege to be part of this process with my patients.”
