I can’t believe it is pageant time again! I have been a sponsor of the Ms Dominican Republic US Pageant for the last 4 years, and have been so proud of how it has grown into a terrific event. I feel we are close to getting our first Miss Universe contestant. But why is a Plastic Surgeon sponsoring a Beauty Pageant? To me, how could I not!
First, having been in Washington Heights since 1988, I feel a part of the Dominican community. Having had Yager Esthetics since 1997, my business is Latin beauty. To see these wonderful young women who are so proud of their heritage is inspiring.
I also enjoy having the opportunity to meet with the contestants and lecture them on skin care and maintaining youth and beauty- essentially how to avoid Plastic Surgery. Education is so important, and the winner has a great platform to enlighten others.
I look forward to this year’s Concurso in September, and hope you all will come and cheer for these amazing women. Maybe one will replace me someday as the plastic surgeon of the Latinos!
