What motivated you to go to medical school?

I first remember thinking about wanting to be a surgeon while I was still in elementary school. Throughout high school and college, I was really into art, photography, and drawing. As a high school student, I won first place in the First Congressional Art Show. The picture I drew hung in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C. for an entire year. Those dual interests came together for me in plastic surgery.

At what point did you decide on plastic surgery as a specialty?

I attended college with 2 prospects in mind: Plastic surgery seemed a natural blend of art and surgery. Now my artistic outlet is my patients. It is easy for me to visualize what the end result of surgeries such as facelifts, breast augmentation, or liposuction, as it is all 3-dimensional. As an award-winning artist, I find it very easy to picture in my head what the end result of procedures will be, which allows me to achieve the results a patient wants. Plastic surgery is a very visual field — it is all about symmetry and proportions, which come naturally to me as an artist.

What are the qualities of a good plastic surgeon?

Great surgeons are typically both very intellectual and visual people, especially in plastic surgery. Plastic surgeons are often the top students in their class in medical school. Usually the best general surgeons are selected for plastic surgery training. Plastic surgeons like that they can see the impact and results of their work. It is extremely rewarding and gratifying to see the positive effects on the lives of our patients.

Excellent plastic surgeons also have a refined sense of aesthetics. Being a plastic surgeon allows me to use my artistic background to sit down with a patient one-on-one and discuss how to help them attain their cosmetic goals. I love to see patients at follow-up appointments. There is no more rewarding moment than to see a patient smile in excitement about the goals you have been able to help them achieve!

It sounds like you and your family travel extensively. Did you travel much as a youth with your family?

Life is a journey. You should make it the best story ever. Life is only the experience you make it. Our travels when I was a child were always explorative in nature. We were not the family that would drive to a tourist destination and stay for a week. Typically my parents would load my sister and I in the car and we would head off in a general direction, usually east or west, sometimes south. When we would ask where we were going the answers were usually, "we're not sure yet," or "wherever we end up." Seemed kind of boring at the time, but I learned to appreciate exploring the world without an agenda. It is important to be adventurous and spontaneous.

My wife, Donna, and I travel much the same way now. My family loves to travel. My children are always up for an adventure. We rarely make much of an agenda when we travel. We pick a destination and show up. Once we get there, we are spontaneous. It is always an adventure!

What was it about Israel and Italy that you found interesting and enjoyable?

Donna has homeschooled our children for several years. We try to pick locations that the kids have studied so we can take them there to see history in person. This makes the history lesson much more exciting.

As an example, we went to Israel and saw Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jericho, and the Dead Sea. While we were there we learned about the Romans tearing down Jerusalem in A.D. 70 as Jesus predicted. Later we went to Italy and in Rome showed the kids the monuments that the Romans erected to celebrate the victory over Jerusalem. It is a fascinating way for the kids to learn history!

If one of your children decided to follow in your footsteps and pursue a career in plastic surgery, what advice would you offer?

I would encourage our kids to pursue their dreams no matter what direction life takes them in. When you love what you do for a living, it becomes a hobby that is fun and not work!
