Achieving a Natural Result in Plastic Surgery
As a plastic surgeon, I focus on the positive in people to achieve natural results. Our mission is to restore you to your most confident, positive self, while staying true to who you are.
Recently a fascinating piece in the Wall Street Journal on identifying one’s strengths caught my eye. This article encourages parents to focus on their child’s strengths to gently guide them. Situations as simple as putting plates away at the dinner table to overcoming challenges on the playground. From an early age, we identify strengths in ourselves. And when things don’t come so easy, we dig deep to find solutions.
What a deeply profound way to impact our childrens’ psyche! To show them they innately have the tools and drive to handle any situation at hand.
Achieving natural results with plastic surgery starts with the first conversation
Naturally, our strengths extend to anything we do, including the care for our bodies. This topic comes up often during one-on-one consultations. When we identify your personal strengths, it is uplifting for both of us! The key is to channel this into a plastic surgery approach that harnesses your strengths, resulting in the best possible natural results.
When you come in for your consult, we spend time getting to know each other. In this time I ask what you do for work. I learn about what fulfills you. We chat about what you like to do for fun. This information gathering helps me understand you and what makes you tick. From there, we tailor a treatment plan in line with your needs and desires. Only with this deep understanding can we truly deliver natural results that bring out your greatest strengths.
Targeting the problem and finding the best solution for you
Just like in the WSJ article, we focus on assessing the problem and identifying the best solution for you. You may ask me why people say, “you look tired“, all the time even when you’re not. We look for the culprit – a heavy, low brow, or sagging eyelids or jowls. I also look for the brilliance that has been your greatest asset! Is it your bright eyes? Is it your prominent cheekbones? Your beautiful skin? To achieve the best natural results with plastic surgery, we must highlight your strengths throughout the process.
The example above describes facelift, browlift and other techniques to rejuvenate the face. But our approach extends to the entire body, including body contouring and breast surgery. Sometimes women come in to discuss breast implants only to realize what really bothers them terribly is their postpartum belly. This leads to a discussion on how a tummy tuck can bring forth a balance and harmony with natural results. Other times women realize that their large breasts are causing discomfort and keeping them from losing weight. Together we determine that breast reduction surgery can help alleviate back pain while restoring their natural physique.

The key to achieving natural results with plastic surgery is simple. We identify your strengths – physical, mental, emotional, structural. Then we work with those strengths to bring out your most radiant self. Don’t be afraid to dig deep and find your shine on this journey. We are here to help.
