WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A SURGEON?
As a medical student at the University of Texas Medical Branch, I started doing wound healing research for the plastic surgery department at the Shriners Hospital. This led to an exposure to not only burn reconstruction, but also craniofacial surgery like cleft lip and palate repair. My introduction to aesthetic surgery was in Dallas during my two-year fellowship at UT Southwestern. There I operated alongside the giants of our field, performing every imaginable surgery. This immense experience gave me tremendous confidence to open my own practice. I became enamored with the creativity and artistic component to cosmetic procedures. The quest to perform perfect surgery is my daily challenge.
WHAT ARE THE MOST POPULAR PROCEDURES (SURGICAL AND NON-SURGICAL) THAT YOUR PATIENTS ARE ASKING FOR RIGHT NOW!
Combination procedures such as tummy tuck with liposuction coupled with breast augmentation with a lift are becoming the norm. Since anesthesia is so much safer now, we are able to do these longer cases and improve multiple areas. This result is a much more balanced and harmonious result.
Our facial and vaginal rejuvenation laser therapy (Halo andiVa) provide remarkable results with minimal downtime. The O-shot and implementation of PRP (platelet rich plasma) has definitely been worthwhile to our patients.
HOW DO YOU PREP FOR A BIG SURGERY?
Preparation for any surgery starts at the initial consultation. It is important to listen to the patient and get an idea of what they are wanting to achieve. Managing expectations is something that must be done early. I want to feel like at the end of every surgery that their final result will be the one they wanted. Exceeding expectations is what sets us apart.
WHAT SETS YOU APART FROM ALL OTHER SURGEONS IN AUSTIN?
My training at UT Southwestern gave me an unparalleled experience in plastic surgery, but being personable and friendly in addition is what sets us apart. If you can’t relate to patients, it doesn’t matter how good you are as a technician. We try to treat every patient as if they are our family. Being able to openly discuss their desires, expectations and even their results makes patients feel comfortable.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO WHEN YOU AREN'T IN THE OPERATING ROOM OR SEEING PATIENTS?
My wife and I got married when I finished medical school. She has been with me through six years of General Surgery, two years of Plastic Surgery and throughout my private practice. We have three wonderful children and I have always tried to spend as much time with them as possible. I have been a supportive “Cheer Dad” for my daughters. Our son played just about every sport growing up. I was able to help coach him in baseball and now follow him around the golf course. If I finish early, I also enjoy playing golf and spending time at Austin Country Club. Watching my family “grow” has been very rewarding. Dinner at our house is a special occasion every night. I love to grill and cook great meals that enhance the time we are together.
WHY IS BEING A PLASTIC SURGEON IN AUSTIN DIFFERENT FROM OTHER CITIES?
Austin is growing like crazy and the vibe is a big part of it. People here are very active and want results that are natural and don’t interfere with their lifestyle. They want to enhance their appearance and look good while working out. My patients routinely show up for consultations in their LuLu Lemon workout gear and their biggest concern is recovery time. A lot are busy executives as well as full time mothers who can’t afford extended downtime.
DESCRIBE A TYPICAL PATIENT.
Every patient is different and there is no “one size fits all” category, but I would say most patients want a natural result that doesn’t look overdone. Breast patients want to have more volume and be perkier and youthful. Lipo and tummy patients want to restore their figure and in some cases, not look pregnant. Patients who present for rhinoplasty want their hump gone, tip refined and in some cases to also breathe better. Eyelid and facelift patient want to look less tired and more refreshed. If someone comes in and wants to look like a cartoon character with huge boobs, lips and a massive butt, I’m not their guy.
