🔹I am an Assistant Professor at Tufts University School of Medicine and involved in resident teaching on a weekly basis. In addition to working at Tufts Medical Center, I have a private practice in Wellesley, MA which I started in 2010.
🔹My main interest is surgical and non-surgical approaches to eyelid and facial rejuvenation. I have over 12 years of experience since completing my training. I have personally performed over 5000 eyelid surgeries and many thousands of filler injections both around the eyes and in other parts of the face.
🔹There are plenty of fakes on social media. People overstate their credentials and post before and after photos which have been photoshopped or stolen from someone else. It’s important for potential patients to be informed. You should never feel bad about asking your providers about their credentials or how much experience they have with a particular procedure.
