As a mom, Dr. Eagan knows all too well the changes brought about by both motherhood and by aging and the detrimental effects these changes can have on a person’s confidence and well-being. She strives to approach each patient’s unique situation without judgment as to help them regain that confidence in the most effective manner. “Improving confidence so people can feel free to be who they are is a beautiful gift and very rewarding,” says Dr. Eagan. “It’s why I do what I do.”
TRAINING & EDUCATION
Having studied in the heart of the plastic surgery world, Beverly Hills, Dr. Eagan was able to fully immerse herself in her training. She completed both general surgery and plastic surgery residencies along with an extra year of fellowship at the University of Southern California. Some of the plastic surgery masters she’s privileged to call mentors include Dr. W. Grant Stevens, Dr. Jay W. Calvert, Dr. Drew Ordon, and Dr. Ritu R. Chopra.
Some consider Beverly Hills to be superficial, but Dr. Eagan’s focus has remained on forging real connections with the people she gets to help every day. Patients come to her vulnerable and afraid, and it is her duty to make sure they leave empowered and confident.
A PASSION FOR HELPING OTHERS
Her passion for helping people has always defined her choices in life. Ultimately, she chose to pursue her passion for healthcare over her passion for art as the former allowed her to more readily impact the lives of others. Dr. Eagan earned many scholarships for her time volunteering her time to people in her community throughout high school, college, and medical school.
“More than just surgery” is Dr. Eagan’s motto. Every day, the care that she provides a patient can greatly impact their life—to simply reduce that care to an impersonal surgical procedure would be a mistake. Care should always be personal, empathetic, and comprehensive. Dr. Eagan believes that approaching beauty is a holistic process:
“Patients come to me to feel better about themselves. Sometimes they have researched exactly what they want. But often, they want to come to an expert who will guide them to the best face and body they can have. Skin care is just as important as a facelift. Botox is just as important as skin care. The best example is when someone comes to his or her personal trainer. They don’t just receive a list of arm exercises. They are told how to improve their diet, sleep, cardio and muscle health. That is how I think of beauty. It’s a package and requires more than one procedure to look as good as you feel sometimes.”
