After studying medicine at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) I specialized in plastic surgery at the Academic Medical Center. In that period I was promoted at the UvA on the topic "Tissue Expansion", a technique that is widely used in breast reconstructions. However, my interest lies in form improving and corrective surgery, such as of the forehead, eyelids, nose, ears, breasts and abdomen.
Since 1995 I run a general practice at the Reinier de Graaf Hospital in Delft and Voorburg. At these locations I offer Aesthetic surgery. The Diaconessenhuis in Voorburg functions as a sort of private clinic. Besides that I am attached to the Velthuis kliniek in Amsterdam.
