A Youthful Look 

I am dual board-certified in otolaryngology head and neck surgery and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. My practice incorporates my surgical skills with a focus on aesthetics and the desire for a more youthful and natural appearance. I am cognizant that a healthy, active lifestyle predominates in the South Bay and that patients desire subtle changes to their appearance to restore an image of themselves that matches how they feel. 

Empowering Patients

I empower patients about their health with knowledge. Knowledge is power, and patients can take better care of their health if they understand their condition and how their diet, exercise and lifestyle relate to it. I try to simplify complex medical explanations so patients are better able to understand how they can influence their health. I also try to talk about changes and preventive measures that I personally undertake to prevent disease.

I love seeing patients improve and feel better about themselves. I enjoy each day that I can use my skills and training to help others. I treat each patient in the same manner I would treat a family member, and I work hard to ensure that if they need care outside my purview, those concerns are facilitated as expeditiously as possible. I stay in contact with my patients through different means of communication and am always available to address their questions and concerns. 

Mind-body Connection

I address the mind-body connection by pointing out the impact that stress, anxiety and depression can have on our health. Almost every day I am asked if stress can make a condition worse, and the bottom line is that stress can make almost every condition worse. However, I help patients focus on the positive aspects of life and steps to alleviate stress.

Health Achievements 

I have won numerous research awards and have been published widely, including multiple chapters in the main textbook used to teach facial plastic and reconstructive surgery fellows. I have been in Manhattan Beach for years and was a clinical instructor at UCSF before moving to Southern California. 

Quick & Easy 

Patients are increasingly requesting less invasive procedures with less recovery time and the ability to return to work quickly. More patients are turning to the multiple in-office services that can be done without general anesthesia or a long recovery period. 

A Woman’S Perspective 

As a female surgeon in a largely male-dominated field, I bring the personal experience of aging in today’s society from a woman’s perspective. I actively try out new technologies and products on myself so I can better educate my patients about them. 

Recommended: Lazerlift 

LazerLift is a one-time, one-hour, minimally invasive treatment designed to tighten the skin of the face and neck and remove excess fat using SmartLipo technology and no scalpel. This can be performed at the office and does not require general anesthesia. LazerLift uses the latest technology to take laser energy underneath your skin and stimulate collagen production in the dermis, which leads to improved skin elasticity, thickness and texture.
