The Contour of Luxury Summer 2019 - Page 281

................................................................................ I grew up in a very artistic and creative household. My mother is an artist, antique dealer, and interior designer and my father does design and construction. I also attended a school that was very supportive of the arts. I had tremendous respect and was always in awe of medicine and surgical procedures. Specifically, my mother and her sisters and friends all received rhinoplasty within the same time period around the time I was 8 years old. I vividly remember going to those clinic visits with them and how different the doctor was from my own pediatrician. Him and his whole office felt more like an artist’s lounge than a clinic. I was fascinated and eventually found the motivation to work hard in college to get into medical school.
