How did you get started in this business? What inspired you to start this business?
While still pursuing an undergraduate degree at McGill University, I realized that my passion for science as well as for fine art and sculpting could be best utilized in the work I perform through Elite Body Sculpture.

With all of the equipment and startup costs, we fully expected profitability to be a relatively lengthy process.

I truly care about my patients and take the time to make sure I understand what they are trying to achieve through a specific procedure.
