My specialties are abdominal wall reconstruction, body contouring, hernia repair, lymphedema and plastic and reconstructive surgery . My expertise is in microsurgical reconstruction and aesthetic surgery of the breast; head and neck reconstruction; cosmetic surgery of the face and body; and general reconstructive plastic surgery.
