About Me


I have finished my Plastic Surgery training in Brazil with Professor Ivo Pitanguy at the Santa Casa de Misericordia of Rio de Janeiro. This is one of the premier universities in training of Plastic Surgeons in the world. I received this certification by the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery in 2003. This is the only Board, which is recognized to give specialty certification in Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery in Brazil.

My Philosophy

Over the years I have incorporated a philosophy which is ultimately beneficial for both my patients and I. It is based on these important tenets:

Understanding that Cosmetic Surgery is a commitment between my patients and I, with no false promises or unfulfilled dreams.

Honest, up front answers to all patients’ questions.

Making myself available to listen to patients’ needs, your desires. I am doing Plastic Surgery for the patient, not for myself.

By following these dictates, using sound judgment and safe surgical practices, I have seen tears and fears about Cosmetic Surgery turned into the most wonderful experiences

Advanced Continuing Education and Training

is my lifelong pursuit. There are always new techniques and methods that are being developed to make patients’ cosmetic surgery easier and safer. I constantly explore the new ways to give patients the very best possible solution for their cosmetic surgery.

I was a teaching instructor of Plastic Surgery in Professor Pitanguy’s school for 4 years, training young Plastic Surgeons.

In 2009 I was nominated Professor of UNIFESO School of Medicine responsible for the Internship in Plastic Surgery for Medical Students in UK.

In 2010 I was nominated an Examiner of the Intercollegiate Exam of the Royal College of Surgeons (RCSEd), one of the greatest honors in my life.
