If you watch the news regularly, you’ve no doubt seen me on San Diego 6 talking about everything from plastic surgery trends in Hollywood to the dangers of makeup bags. While a few people might argue that some plastic surgeons in San Diego use media outlets as a way to inflate their own image, for me, making television appearances is a way to inform and educate the public about cosmetic surgery.
Beauty is my passion. And I believe that the most important decision a person can make is to improve their appearance. Being in the public eye enables me to present reliable, credible information and help men and women make informed choices about plastic surgery. Whether weighing in on the latest Hollywood fad in US Weekly or speaking at a board meeting for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, I am proud to serve as an advocate on behalf of the medical industry.
Some surgeons do not believe in making public appearances. Some choose to simply do their job and go home; that is not my practice. I believe that if you are not educating the public about both the benefits and the risks of plastic surgery, you are doing a disservice to your patients. So when someone on the street pulls me aside and asks, “Didn’t I see you on TV?” I am pleased to say, “Yes.”
