Describe the most rewarding experience that you have had working with a patient?
I love the challenge of being both surgeon and artist, paying the closest attention to every detail of an operation or procedure. I take great pride in helping my patients look their best because it gives me tremendous satisfaction and because my results are on display for the world to see. Reconstructive and cosmetic surgery is not just to make the patient look acceptable, but to improve his or her appearance. The goal is to return "form and function" to patients, while achieving aesthetic perfection.
What is your charity organization of choice and why?
I spend one week of every month performing surgery and treating patients at the Trauma Center of Orlando Health. I found that I wanted to give back to the community in which has blessed me. Central Florida has been my home all of my life and nothing is better than giving back to the very place that has given me so much.
What makes your specialties the right fields of medicine for you?
Every medical discipline is demanding, but plastic surgery requires a special skill because of the precision and artistic ability needed. It has one of the longest and most comprehensive training programs in medicine. I love the challenge of being both surgeon and artist, paying the closest attention to every detail of an operation or procedure.
When (your age) 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?
I come from a family of talented health care professionals. I was born to be a surgeon. I knew, even as a young boy, that becoming a surgeon was my calling. It is truly my passion and I have devoted my entire career to meeting the cosmetic needs of my patients, as well as restoring their confidence.
Can you tell us in your own words what you consider a perfect outcome of a surgical procedure?
Being a cosmetic surgeon, as well as a reconstructive surgeon, I strive for beautiful results in everything I do. Whether performing a complex face lift or a simple medical spa treatment like injecting Botox?, I accept nothing less than aesthetic perfection. Perfect outcomes are complete patient satisfaction, in which I have not only met expectations, but exceeded them.
