Did you know that 90% of plastic surgery patients are women but only 8% of plastic surgeons are female? Studies have shown that female doctors, on average, spend more time talking with their patients than male counterparts. As a result, female plastic surgeons are more likely to take the time to extensively discuss your different treatment options and listen to your thoughts. For many female patients, having a female plastic surgeon allows them to talk freely about their issues without fear or embarrassment. Women tend to naturally feel more comfortable talking about their body to other women. As a woman and board certified plastic surgeon, I bring an intimate understanding to the realm of aesthetic facial and breast surgery. I'm keenly attuned to the emotional issues that accompany a change in appearance, and our treatment style is all encompassing. I want to empower you to look and feel your very best. Confidence is beauty. Women with more confidence are just more beautiful. The decision on whether you should choose a woman plastic surgeon is of course personal. We strive to provide exceptional patient care regardless of our patient’s gender.
