Meet Dr. Sanjiv Kayastha

A message from Dr. Kayastha

I grew up with a mother who was a physician. Each day she would tell me that being a doctor was the best job in the world. Simply put, she felt that there was no greater good one could do than to help another person. She always told me that the feeling of satisfaction that she received from helping her patients was her reward.

I love what I do. I think that being a plastic surgeon is the best job in the world. As a plastic surgeon, I am able to help people improve their appearance and the way they feel about themselves. Some patients are affected by trauma or cancer. Others want to look more youthful or improve the shape of their bodies. Each day I am thankful that I am blessed with the skills to help all of these people as a plastic surgeon.
