What are your areas of specialty?

I specialize in both cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery including breast reduction, lift, augmentation, and implant removal and revision. Our medspa specializes in all fillers and carefully curated laser treatments customized to meet the needs of our skin care patients. 


What is a common concern of your patients?

When people come to our medspa for laser skin care treatments or aesthetician services, they are often expecting immediate results for a skin concern—wanting wrinkles to disappear and skin to look smoother overnight. One of our favorite expressions is that doing skin treatments is like working out with a trainer—you won’t see the results after your first session. But after a few treatments you realize how much better your skin looks, and it just keeps getting better after each treatment. One of our favorite treatments is PRP with microneedling. It uses our body’s PRP through a quick blood draw to microneedle plasma directly back into the face. This treatment targets fine lines, wrinkles, scars and uneven skin tone, and plumps up the skin’s collagen naturally and safely. 


What products do your patients like most?

We developed a skin care line called Orá Rx to meet the needs of our patients looking for medical-grade care that soothes, renews and protects their skin. Patients also love our HA Calming Balm and HA Soothing Serum.


How do you ensure that you’re living a balanced life?

I am an avid surfer and snowboarder. Anytime I get out of surgery early, I head to the beach to catch some waves. I love snowboarding in Mammoth or Tahoe with both of my kids. I also help out with my son’s baseball team. I enjoy spending a lot of time with my family. It’s very important to me that my staff and I have work-life balance, so no one works weekends or late hours.
