"What fuels me are my three daughters. Sophia is almost 15. Anissa is 16. Lila is almost 17... They bring unspeakable pride and joy to my heart."
Define Beyond Beauty? As a plastic surgeon, I believe in beauty. I love beautiful artwork, fashion, jewelry, flowers and people! To me, Beyond Beauty is the whole picture that everyone is already beautiful, and that individual components of beauty, whether from the inside or out, are just the parts. Some important parts of beauty include confidence, a kind and giving heart, smile, healthy skin and hair, toned muscles, eyes that have a soul, a strong and smart mind, determination, thoughtfulness, selflessness, and achievements. In our practice, we believe in helping put together all the parts of beauty. We understand that feeling positive about what is on the outside can help you feel beautiful on the inside. Our goal is to repair and enhance and rejuvenate your outward appearance, so that your individual Beyond Beauty will shine.
What fuels your drive? What fuels me are my three daughters. Sophia is almost 15. Anissa is 16. Lila is almost 17... They bring unspeakable pride and joy to my heart. I want to be a good role model to them. I want to show them that women can, in fact, have it all! If we want children, we can and will be the best mother for them. If we have a passion, we will pursue and take it to a new level. We can do both! I believe it is important to be an independent woman who has something that drives her, whether it be a career or interest. However, each of my girls know that I’m always first mom to them and would do anything for them.
What wisdom have you gained through the years? Over the years, I have learned the most from my patients. Some of my patients are busy mothers getting their bodies back with mommy makeovers. Through them, I’ve learned not to be so hard on myself... that many of us go through the exact same trials and tribulations... just trying to be Mom, not lose our cool, maintain a social life, drink enough water, exercise, text people back, stay alive and remain sane. Other patients are brave women fighting breast cancer. Through them, I learned about how strong we truly are and how life is too precious to agonize over small things. I also learned about accepting help when needed, perseverance and positive attitude.
What exciting projects are you working on? Currently, my partner Dr. Diane Alexander and I are working on an exciting project involving an amazing French skin care line, Biologique Recherche. We are planning to introduce this line and their facial and body services to Atlanta in a beautiful spa in Buckhead.
Three beauty products I cannot do without? Biologique Recherche Lotion P50. This is my magic potion that exfoliates, hydrates, and balances of the pH of my skin. SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore. This is an amazing anti-aging lipid replenishment treatment that gives my skin a more youthful radiance, smoothness and suppleness.
UMA Pure Calm Wellness Oil. This beautiful fragrance promotes tranquility and balance from within. It helps me destress as I get into meditation, deep relaxation mode.
