No matter how we feel in life whether it's failure or success - in the eyes, hearts and minds of our children we are always super parents. 
I love spending time with my little mini me @layla every possible moment. Being her mom teaches me so many things and helped me become the woman I am today.  A hug from her is the solution to all my life's problems ❤️
Current mood. Have a wonderful weekend❤️
This is so funny. 😂 Do you prefer longer or shorter captions on my IG page? I’d love to hear from you.
We live in an open society where almost anyone can place judgment on another person. With social media and the Internet, that makes hating even more accessible. When it comes to coping with these situations, my advice is to focus on yourself, what you are doing to better yourself, the accomplishments and positive qualities you have, and the people close to you that truly know you and love you. Let any negative comments fall around you without striking you. 
When I was younger, because I didn't fit a lot of the stereotypes that people expected of me, I had to face a lot of judgement. Being at Harvard or even Med school, sometimes I honestly felt like Elle Woods, where fellow classmates told me that I shouldn't dress up or wear makeup to class; that it was Harvard, not fashion school. At this point in my life, I feel that I've earned the right to be who I am.  I have a huge heart and put everything into the care for my patients and my family and I try to create positivity around everything I do. 
Don't be afraid to be yourself. When you are true to yourself, it will allow you to be unaffected from any negative judgments.  Every single person is unique and creates their own path in life that is just as valid and important as anyone else's.  Express yourself in whatever way makes you feel joy and don't let the fear of judgement stifle your style or your inner glow and keep you from being yourself. - Dr. Cat
Family fun❤️
This is a side of me that you don’t see a lot but I truly enjoy being a housewife and mommy when not at work. The entire process of preparing and cooking dinner at home with my family is some of the best moments ever. Have a wonderful weekend everyone❤️
Don't worry about being successful, aim to be valuable. When you are valuable, success will find you. You will always attract what you believe you're worth. Our value is always in the ability of doing things for others. Becoming a Plastic Surgeon was such a long process and for most of the 16 years it took after high school, education and training was non-glamorous.  Then after that, there was immense work and effort in starting a practice from scratch. If my only passion and drive was success, there is no way I could have gone through this process. To be honest, many times I just felt like giving up and just getting whatever low stress job I could get with very little responsibility. What kept me going was the hopeful eyes of patients and their family members waiting with anticipation to tell them that everything was going to be ok. I was standing there, just a girl who could make a difference by what I was doing. That was valuable.  I felt a purpose and something bigger than my temporary weakness that would very quickly turn into strength. #plasticsurgeon #doctor #mdglam
Radiate divine energy. Know how good and beautiful you are and where your qualities come from. Never feel sorry for yourself, even in your hardest moments as those moments are the beginning of your inclination to the top. You have what it takes and what you have will take you where you need to be. Dr. Cat
Life is about balance. Be kind, but don't let people mistreat you. Trust, but don't be deceived. Be content, but never stop improving yourself. #life #balance #selfimprovement #mdglam
I find a tremendous amount of gratitude in being able to serve as an inspiration to so many. Many of you see me as a confident, well-rounded and strong women. But like many other women, my entire life has been to some degree an internal battle fighting certain sides of me that would hold me back. Many of them were a product of negative people and environment that I absorbed and carried with me. It took me 40 years to find the strength to embrace myself entirely and love every part of me with all my qualities and flaws. The biggest one is just being me without the fear of worrying what others may think or believe. Always be you. You’re enough the way you are. Your desire to improve should always be because you want that and never because it’s expected from you. Dr. Cat

When people can’t do something themselves, they’ll try to tell you that you can’t do it either. Don’t let them be right. What you have in your life, you create with your thinking, positive or negative. Life creates itself around your mindset and perspective. Don’t let the limits of others limit you. You have the ability to push the boundaries past those before you and past what others comprehend. Your destiny and path belong to you. ❤️
Here's a surprising statement: Plastic surgery can be good for your health. In addition to the self-confidence and peace of mind that can come from aesthetic enhancements, many procedures can improve specific ailments, as well as your general health and well-being. Here are just a few examples:

Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty (often called a "tummy tuck" or "mommy makeover") is a procedure that tightens abdominal muscles and removes excess fat and skin from the area. The removal of this extra weight can decrease pressure on the lower back, and the tightening process serves to better support your spine, thus improving posture and relieving many aches and pains. Also, after pregnancy or rapid weight loss, it can be used to remove stretched out skin that becomes irritated from too much friction.

Breast Surgery

Both breast reduction and breast augmentation surgeries go beyond simply reshaping your breast. During these procedures, weight gets redistributed to aid proper spinal alignment. Breast reduction, in particular, is often chosen specifically to relieve strain on the back, neck and shoulders. Not only does this correct the physical stress on the spine, but it also can enable you to better participate in rigorous physical activity that may have been uncomfortable or even painful if you were born to have a large chest.


A nose job can be more functional than you might guess. Reshaping the nose offers opportunities to simultaneously correct structural flaws in the nasal passage or sinus region. This can include widening the airways or fixing a deviated septum, thereby improving airflow and reducing congestion.

These are just a few examples of how cosmetic surgery can do more than simply make you look good. Surprisingly, many of these procedures may end up doing more for your bodily health and comfort in the long run than the beautifying aspects for which they are known. @surgeon  #plasticsurgery #lifechanging
