Top Rated Facial Plastic Surgeon in Pacific Northwest – Puget Sound – King County WA
“The thing I like most about being a facial plastic surgeon is making happy people happier. For example, an 18-year-old young woman who has maybe a large dorsal hump on her nose and is very self-conscious about it, when I shave that hump down and give her a beautiful nose, she tends to just blossom with self-confidence. And for me, that makes my day. I perform thousands of facial cosmetic surgery procedures on both men and women from the age of 16 to 86.
We have a very seasoned crew of registered nurses and many of my staff have been with me 14-15 years. And my surgical scrub nurse has been with me 25 years.
We have a On-Site Surgical Center – Medicare-certified outpatient surgery center which is a gold-standard of operating rooms in the United States. We have a private entrance to our surgery center and a private elevator that patients can go up and down in.”
