“I just genuinely love taking care of people,” she says.
Proof of that continued vigor comes with the news that Henry opened a new location for her practice this month, in San Francisco at 450 Sutter St., Suite 1340. Henry first opened her practice in Greenbrae in 1992, followed by locations in Davis and Petaluma. “This is really a very exciting time for the practice,” says Henry, noting that the new office is designed to cater to national and international patients. “The world is getting smaller, and we’re able to do virtual consultations for the time constrained and the out of town patients.”
Henry earned a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Southern California and her Medical Doctorate from UC Davis School of Medicine. She completed her general surgery training at the Oregon Health Sciences University Hospital and her plastic surgery training at the Rush Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago, followed by a fellowship in aesthetic and breast surgery at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Portland.
Henry initially focused on general surgery after school before honing in on cranial facial surgery, primarily for those born with birth defects. Trained in a variety of applications, Henry now primarily focuses on cosmetic surgery, such as breast augmentations and reductions, face-lifts, liposuction, hair transplants, laser surgery, nose surgery and eyelid surgery, among others.
With four locations, Henry says she enjoys the distinctions among her four spaces and the patients of each. “I’ve always enjoyed the different dynamic of each office and the different diversity of each office,” says Henry, a member of the American Medical Association, American Board of Plastic Surgery and the California Plastic Surgery Society.
Henry says she continues to love throwing her “supper club” events, in which she gathers a group of protective patients for a meal and a presentation, allowing would-be patients the opportunity to engage with her practice and “learn about the most recent techniques and procedures in a relaxed, festive setting.”
