I am a specialist in plastic surgery, having gained extensive and diverse experience in the field of complex reconstructive surgery, with an emphasis on the head and neck area. Throughout my career, I have focused my expertise on the field of microsurgery, utilizing this technique to plan and conduct unique reconstructive processes that require a deep and creative outlook.
My work is based on the integration of three parameters:
Function: Restoring the functionality of an organ or an area undergoing reconstruction
Aesthetics: Attaining a satisfying aesthetic quality, raising the self image which may have been damaged due to the illness and surgery
Recovery: Achieving full recovery through a process designed to reduce side effects and decrease the chances of unwanted complications
