Describe the most rewarding experience that you have had working with a patient?
Rejuvenating faces with a simple fat grafting procedure that can avoid the big facelift surgery has been most rewarding. These patients have always wanted to tweak their face but were very fearful of surgery. This allowed them to shave years off of their appearance with minimal down time or risk - they were SO thankful.

What is your favorite quote or saying?

A happy patient.
