I practice general cosmetic surgery as well as aesthetic medicine.
In terms of aesthetic medicine, I offer injections of hyaluronic acid, Botox and more. recently Sculptra for correction of lines and volumes. This is increasingly in demand they carry immediate results, very few risks and little recovery time and can precede or complement surgery.
In cosmetic surgery, I practice a natural looking surgery which is far from the trends and the dictates as we do not wish total transformation or alteration. I perform on the body, breasts and face with an emphasis on rejuvenation of the face. It can be challenging as you have to know how to respect the personality of the patient. I also perform many breast augmentation and body contouring which is a real aesthetic enhancing surgery.
