Meet New York Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Kenneth Francis:
Describe the most rewarding experience that you have had working with a patient?
The best and most touching compliment I ever received from a patient was "I love waking up in the morning because I feel and look great! You have changed my life for the better."
What does living in New York mean to you?
I meet people from all different walks of life. I love New York for two undisputed facts: New York has a sophisticated populous. As a surgeon, you always have to be intuned with the latest technology in plastic surgery. The second fact, when you walk down the street, you hear at least three different languages being spoken. It is the empitamy of what America is all about.
What is your favorite quote or saying?
A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. Winston Churchill
What makes your specialties the right fields of medicine for you?
I am a creative, artistic and people person. Plastic surgery emcompasses most of who I am. It gives me so much pleasure to be able to enhance peoples appearances and seeing how much joy they experience. I am their surgeon, therapist and sometimes a friend for life.
When did you first realize you wanted to become a surgeon? And did you experience anything in particular to motivate you to achieve this prestigious goal?
Ever since I was a little I always wanted to be a surgeon. As I grew older I realized it was my calling. To be a part of helping someone look and feel better about themselves is so rewarding. I had no doubt in my heart and mind that I was going to be a surgeon.
Can you tell us in your own words what you consider a perfect outcome of a surgical procedure?
The perfect outcome is when both the patient and I are ecstatic about the results of their surgery.
What is your favorite procedure to perform and why?
Breast augmentation. It is a simple and quick procedure to perform. There is little down time for patients. And patients always love the result. Instant gratification.
In a perfect world, when would you like to retire, where would you go and what would you do?
Hawaii. It is a beautiful state. I love nature and the ocean.
