Our practice began with a friendship between two doctors whose background is largely based in microsurgery and hand reconstruction. While all plastic surgeons must complete a rigorous training program that includes two-additional years in medical school, this highly demanding work involves restoring some of the most delicate portions of the human anatomy. It’s the strongest basis we can imagine for the no-less-demanding work of plastic surgery.
Just becoming a plastic surgeon is an enormous challenge but that’s not the whole story; board-certification is an essential qualification. Undergoing the rigorous process of being credentialed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons – the nation’s preeminent plastic surgeons’ organization — was a crucial step. Board certification assures patients that we fully understand the awe-inspiring responsibility we take on when we perform surgery on a fellow human being – and that we are prepared for the challenges that come with it.
In the years since, we have been working in the highly competitive climate of Los Angeles-area plastic surgery and have helped patients of all ages, backgrounds, and genders make the most of their lives. It’s a process that we have extremely gratifying. But something was still missing.
There’s nothing better than working with people you respect and like. So, it made sense to us to open our doors together on LA’s bustling Westside. It’s home to some of the world’s most intelligent, creative, and dynamic people in high-tech, entertainment, and many other fields. Our patients are highly discerning people who are not afraid to let us know what they think and feel. It’s an exciting atmosphere and adding to our thirty-five years of combined experience at this location has been uniquely rewarding.
