Professional Statement

I have had the privilege to practice Cosmetic Surgery for over 25 years, both in Santa Monica and Newport Beach. It has been a pleasure and an honor to meet you and care for you for so many years. I have done my very best every single day, and I have developed a sincere friendship and affection for many of my patients. I am saddened that severe cervical and lumbar issues are now precluding me from performing surgery. I believe the time has come for me to retire and concentrate on my health, and pass the torch to a younger generation. The decision to stop practicing was not an easy one. Finding worthy successors was even more challenging. I wanted to make sure that I would leave my patients in trusted and capable hands. I am delighted to report that I have been able to find 2 outstanding surgeons, highly educated and extremely skilled, to continue caring for you. I am proud to introduce Dr. David Rahimi and Dr. Ralph Massey to you. Both are established, respected, ethical and very experienced. Dr. Rahimi, Dr. Massey, and I share the same philosophy for patient care: Respect and Dedication to our patients, and for ourselves, we seek to achieve the highest level of competence and skill.
