”I enjoy the aesthetic aspects of my job, but I believe that the real benefits of cosmetic procedures are improved confidence, self-esteem and a happier life. It is not important what your body looks like to others but how you feel about it. My consultations are 100% confidential and not judgemental. I see my clients as equal partners in the decision-making process. It is important that you understand the procedure, recovery, benefits and complications before proceeding with surgery.”
