Why did you choose plastic surgery as your specialty? – “In the field of medicine, there are numerous conditions where the perfect cure is not available. Medicine is an honorable field, but far from perfect. During my education, I found that plastic surgery, often times, provides the patient with a more complete restoration to form and function that many other fields of medicine cannot. This kind of patient satisfaction is rare to achieve and that is, for me, truly rewarding.”
What is Katy Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery about? – "There is great beauty in simplicity. Quite simply, I wanted to create a plastic surgery practice where I would want to go to. A place that provides professional, highly skilled, discrete, medically-safe care – where being a mother and being a woman is fully understood… No gimmicks – only tried and true methods. A place where you can continue to return to throughout all of the different stages in life for all of your plastic surgery needs. That is what I hope to provide in Katy Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.”
