Established in 1991. : I entered private practice in Seattle in 1991 after many years of formal training in Medical School, General Surgery Residency and Plastic Surgery residency. In my early years of practice, I did a huge variety of procedures both cosmetic and reconstructive. On any given day I could be found doing a breast implant case in my office in the morning, caring for a patient with a chronic open wound in the hospital and then ending my work day by sewing up a dog bit victim in the emergency room.Over the years, I became more interested in cosmetic surgery and now devote about 95 % of my practice to that branch of plastic surgery. I find doing cosmetic cases as challenging, varied and rewarding as reconstructive cases. In February of 2014, I moved my office into a brand new space with a state-of-the art in-office outpatient surgery center. I am truly living the plastic surgery private practice dream.I am an American Board of Plastic Surgery certified surgeon in private practice in Seattle since 1991. I help my patients achieve their personal best through plastic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic procedures. The vast majority of my patients are happy, healthy and highly functional individuals who have one or two facial or body features that bother them daily. My job is to address those concerns so they can live their best life. In addition to providing up-to-date and innovative plastic surgery techniques, I take time to educate my patients so they can make informed and thoughtful choices about their care. I operate in my state-of-the-art and certified office operating suite, Seattle Surgery Center and Swedish Medical Center. I am supported by highly trained staff who are dedicated to making your plastic surgery experience one that you would recommend to a family member or close friend.
