“I strongly feel that plastic surgery, whether for cosmetic or for reconstruction purposes, is uniquely personal, and requires great empathy toward a patient, as it affects both your body and your mind (body image). Because of this paramount guiding principal, I feel it is essential for you to take as much time as you need to express yourself, so that I can carefully evaluate and understand your concerns, to answer your questions, and to gain an in-depth appreciation of your unique beauty and health goals."
