I specialize in the field of rhinoplasty which includes primary, revision, and reconstructive cases. The procedure depends on the anatomy and needs of the patient and can be augmentation or reduction in nature. I don’t use silastic (silicone) implants in my practice and prefer porous (goretex) implants as the results are more natural looking and less prone to infection, rejection and contracture formation.
I am a board certified General Surgeon and Aesthetic/Cosmetic Surgeon being a fellow of the Philippine College of Surgeons, Philippine Society of General Surgeons and Philippine Academy of Aesthetic Surgery.
