Female-Plastic-Surgeon Powered By Docstoc
					From the day I started my practice, I have always said and stuck to the
idea that if I can't create a natural result, the surgery probably
shouldn't be done. And I think one of the reasons patients have anxieties
about pursuing plastic surgery is they don't want to look stretched or
tight, and I completely understand that.

If surgeries are planned correctly and done technically well, there's no
reason to have that appearance. I don't think it benefits the patient. So I
really do prefer a natural result. I design my surgeries so that the
results do look natural, and I think my patients are very happy about that.

Well, currently the people that pursue plastic surgery are 89 percent
female. And that's changing a little bit over time, but for the most part,
still the majority of my patients are women. And I think women do think
differently about pursuing plastic surgery compared to my male patients.

And I think that I understand the way they think very well because I am
female, and I have to deal with my own aging issues and how I'm going to
approach those from a plastic surgery care standpoint. So I understand
where they're coming from about just wanting to look youthful, not
necessarily look 20 years younger than you are, but look as vigorous as you

And so I think I connect with them on a lot of issues about aging and
appearance whereas with my male patients, I certainly relate to them very
well and I enjoy taking care of them, but I think the level of
understanding is pretty good between me and my female patients. And I think
that some of my male colleagues, extremely technically adept, good at what
they do, but from a communications standpoint, I think maybe I have a
little bit of an advantage.
