My philosophy in plastic surgery is based on a few fundamental beliefs. Plastic surgery, first and foremost, is surgery. As such, it has to be approached with the greatest respect and attention to safety. Not all patients will be good candidates for plastic surgery from a health standpoint. Those patients who are excellent candidates, however, should also be aware that limits must be set to reduce the risks and maximize the results whenever possible.
Plastic surgery is discretionary surgery. It is a desired pathway toward meeting new appearance goals for an individual. Because all individuals will have unique sets of appearance goals, it is necessary that they become full partners in the decision-making process with their plastic surgeon.
