My practice focus is on all aspects of surgery of the breast and body with special emphasis on revision breast surgery. I am very involved in local and national societies. I am a past-president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). I speak nationally and internationally educating other plastic surgeons about revision breast surgery and practice management.
