elcome to Advanced Art of Cosmetic Surgery, offering advanced cosmetic surgery services to national and international patients in Richmond, Virginia. This website is a resource to provide balanced and accurate information regarding many concepts in cosmetic surgery of the breasts, body, and face, including breast augmentation enlargement with saline or silicone implants, correction of cosmetic breast surgery problems, body contouring by tummy tuck and liposuction, mommy makeovers, facelift, necklift, blepharoplasty eyelid surgery, browlift, and more.
My passions have always been surgery and art, thus my love for surgery is naturally blended with my artistic approach to cosmetic surgery. The draping of the facial skin to create smooth natural lines, the proportioning of the breast to the rest of the body to create a symmetry that compliments each individual woman while still maintaining beautiful breast shape, and contouring the body to create smooth curves and confidence are among the benefits of properly planned and performed cosmetic surgery.
I draw on this artistic approach, along with exceptional surgical training and knowledge to attain the most beautiful outcomes, while avoiding common complications. These techniques, along with extensive experience, have given me the ability to correct those complications for patients who have come to see me from all over the world. I have performed thousands of breast augmentation procedures, including complex revision of failed augmentation procedures from as far away as Europe, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, and Australia.
This site features extensive unretouched patient photo illustrations of surgeries that I, exclusively, have performed, covering all topics that are discussed here.
My practice is among the busiest in the country, and I am one of the principal investigators in the Mentor Silicone Core Gel Study, which served as the FDA's basis for approval of silicone gel breast implants for cosmetic use in 2006. I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), and member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) among other key organizations.
I hope you will find this information useful.
