“As a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, my goal is to attain a harmonious balance between aesthetics and function. I am guided by two chief concerns: achieving natural results and at the same time putting the patient’s safety first. I prioritise the consultation, discussing the various surgical and non-surgical techniques available. I aspire to have a clear understanding of the patient’s needs and expectations, always encouraging realistic goals.
Even cosmetic surgery is based on reconstructive principles and no reconstructive surgery is done without trying to improve the aesthetic appearance. So as a plastic surgeon, I am trained in and use aspects of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery in every case.
