Internationally Recognized in Breast Reconstruction
One of Castle Connolly’s Exceptional Women in Medicine 2019
Peer-Reviewed Publications and Book Chapters
Co-Director of NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s Breast Reconstruction State of the Art Course

I became fascinated with the specialty of plastic surgery after listening to a lecture during my training as a medical student. Plastic surgery seemed to be a perfect blend of two of my passions—science and art. My patients often tell me that I am an artist.

As a cosmetic and breast plastic surgeon at NYU Langone and Perlmutter Cancer Center, I offer breast reconstruction for people who have been treated for breast cancer and also perform surgery for cosmetic problems on the face, breast, and body. I specialize in all types of breast reconstruction, including reconstruction using implants and autologous, or flap, reconstruction, which uses a patient’s own tissue.

I am a skilled board-certified surgeon with more than 20 years of experience. My treatment philosophy is simple—I listen to my patients and I strive to deliver the best care possible using my expertise and the latest techniques. I consider it a privilege to care for my patients, and my medical team delivers responsive, personalized care that is tailored to meet their requirements.

As a recognized leader in aesthetic breast reconstruction, I have been invited to speak at many national and international conferences, including the London Breast Meeting and the World Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery. I am active in clinical research for developing safer breast implants and minimally invasive breast surgery. I have published numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals and have contributed to many book chapters. I am a co-director for NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s Breast Reconstruction State of the Art course.

I am a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and the American Association of Plastic Surgeons. I am also an examiner for the American Board of Plastic Surgery. I have been named one of Castle Connolly’s Exceptional Women in Medicine 2019 and Top Doctors: New York Metro Area every year since 2012. I was also named one of New York Magazine’s Best Doctors for six consecutive years.
