I completed my undergraduate studies with a Bachelor of Science in Biology at Pacific Union College. Subsequently, I enrolled in the Microbiology program at Loma Linda University Graduate School, and the following year began my medical training at Loma Linda University School of Medicine. Upon completion of my Medical Degree. I was accepted as the first individual in the combined General Surgery/Plastic Surgery program at the University of California, Irvine, where I completed my residency in Plastic Surgery.

I have given presentations and published book chapters and articles on a wide variety of reconstructive and cosmetic procedures, including abdominoplasty, browlift, eyelid surgery, correction of breast deformities, gluteal augmentation, wound healing, scarring and burn care. I love the variety that plastic surgery has to offer and enjoy all aspects of this specialty.

I believe that plastic surgery should be complimentary and natural in appearance, achieved by enhancing each person's unique attributes. My goal is to restore balance by customizing care to the patient's individual needs. I have an honest and personable approach that my patients find refreshing. I am not interested in trying to "sell" as many services as possible. My passion lies in formulating the right prescription for each person.
