"Plastic Surgery (from the Greek "plastike" - "the art of molding"). I am passionate about this specialty because on one hand it presents great challenges and satisfactions, and on the other one it gives us pleasure to further enhance the human body through cosmetic surgery.

Symmetry, harmony, proportion, elegance, security"
