The most important single element of my practice is knowing my patients. If I have an opportunity to sit down and listen to what someone wants and why, I learn something about them and I am in position to more effectively serve them. Careful listening is as important for me as understanding an operation is for a patient.

An important part of my practice philosophy is the idea of restoring the normal. Whether this goal is for someone looking to restore their facial tissues after years of gravitational sag or for someone who needs to lose a breast to cancer, it is at the core of what I do. My life in plastic surgery has been interesting and personally rewarding. Whether I am teaching, volunteering in a third world countries, working on research, or practicing in my office in Santa Monica, I meet good people with fascinating stories to tell.
