With spring around the corner, it is exciting to be in the Sacramento Valley. The trees are in blossom and everyone is anxiously anticipating the new season. Tax returns are coming back this year as the economy seems to be picking up, an election year in the capital city, and the start of a new decade. The realization of the potential and witnessing the new beauty is rewarding. One of the greatest rewards I experience as a plastic surgeon is seeing the joy patients have after a procedure in which the results meet their expectations. From the words of a friend “It gives the soul a little boost. “ Have a great spring.
