A Conversation with Dr. de la Pedraja

I was exposed to medicine at a very young age. My father is a doctor, and I would accompany him to work every weekend. For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a doctor.

My dad is a radiologist, and I was  exposed to medicine at an early age. I felt a more hands-on approach was what I preferred, which led me to surgery.

When I started med school, I knew I wanted to specialize in some type of surgery. The first week, we were asked if we wanted to be teamed up with either medicine or surgery. I picked surgery and was sent to a community plastic surgeon, and I loved it. I was sold on the mix of cosmetic and reconstruction surgery.

I like to make people happy. There are so many facets of plastic surgery to keep you excited about the profession. Whether it’s reconstructing someone for trauma or cancer or enhancing someone for cosmetic reasons, it’s all quite fulfilling.

It is best if they are informed about what they are coming in for. 

If not, they come in, and I will give them all the info they desire. I may spend 30-60 min with them.

I will always be honest and transparent with my patients on what I can deliver. I may tell them it’s too much surgery for one day. We may have to stage the procedures. It is not always what they want to hear, but it is what is right.
