A personal word from Dr Rodrigo Teixeira, MD, FRACS (PLAST)
“The pursuit of beauty should not follow social media trends or be influenced by propaganda. It is cliché, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. My approach is of respect for your identity and I listen to you to understand your concerns and your goals. I pursue natural results that are based on unique individual features to unveil natural beauty.
I believe in a more artistically defined technique that is carefully tailored for each person. Most importantly, I very much value interpersonal relationships, and having a positive impact in people’s lives is my ultimate aim.”
Naturally beautiful and unique to you.
