Why did you become a plastic surgeon?
During medical school, I had a mentor at Toronto Western Hospital, plastic surgeon Dr. Dimitri Anastakis.
He inspired me to pursue this career path! I have been very blessed to have been inspired and supported by my parents and sisters in pursuing my career dreams.
Did you make this web site?
Aside from the basic structure of this web site, I update and format this entire web site by myself. One of my first paid jobs was web site design (aside from working as a cashier at Loblaws supermarket, setting up chairs for an orchestra, and serving french fries at a middle school cafeteria).
Now I am combining my love for plastic surgery, patient and trainee education, and web design! All I need to do next is find a way to incorporate my love of french fries into this project.
Why did you make this web site?
My patients often ask me what their scars will look like, or what their surgeries will involve. By providing before and after photos and surgical videos on this web site, I hope to make the healing journey more comfortable for my patients so that they are well informed throughout their journeys. Patient photos are only posted online with patient consent.
