As a board certified plastic surgeon, I make it my goal to offer my patients the safest, yet most innovative and effective surgical techniques. After completing a six-year plastic surgery residency in Tampa, Florida, I was eager to return to my home state. Starting my own practice, Prince Plastic Surgery, was a lifelong dream of mine. I am privileged to offer Arkansans the best cosmetic and reconstructive surgery options.


Why do you love your career?
I love my patients! I am able to learn something from them each and every day. They let me see the world through their eyes and inspire me both personally and professionally.

If you weren’t doing this job what would you be doing?
I would be doing something else artistic. I love that I get to use my artistic abilities every day, only my canvas is a body. No two surgeries are the same and this keeps me striving for perfection.

What’s a fun fact about you that would surprise people?
I love to rap.

How do you define success?
I define success by happiness. I feel it is important to decide what makes you happiest and strive for it every day. My practice makes me happy, so it never seems like work.

What has been the greatest moment in your career?
The greatest moments are when patients say thank you for changing their lives. The power of a thank you is immeasurable. It may sound cliché, but it never gets old.
