Meet Our Team
Kristina Meltzer, Practice Manager & Patient Care Coordinator
Hi there! My name is Kristina and I am the Practice Manager and Patient Care Coordinator here at SF Bay Area Plastic Surgery. A little about me: I was finished with nursing school by the time I realized I was a little too squeamish for the field and moved quickly into the hospitality industry while trying to decide what I was going to do next – I never would have guessed that my true passion lived in the cosmetic surgery world! Working alongside Dr. Fazilat and our amazing team of injectors has taught me so much about this industry. I love sharing with our patients (and anyone else who will listen) about it.
I am frequently moved to tears by the kind words of our grateful patients and I am truly honored to play a part in their journeys to regain self-confidence. As a cosmetic surgery patient myself, I feel a unique connection to the men and women who find themselves in surgical consultations with us.
In addition to being knowledgeable, experienced, and up to date with the aesthetics field, my goal for the team at SFBAPS is for us to embody kindness and compassion. Our patients might forget to wear their SPF and sometimes they even forget their appointments, but they won’t ever forget how we made them feel.
Likes: When I’m not at the office, I spend most of my time with all the babies my friends and family have blessed my life with!
Favorite Treatments: Oh man, don’t make me pick just one! I am skincare OBSESSED and will never miss a facial. Although I think I am our clinical staff’s least favorite patient, I’ve tried almost everything we offer in the office and it’s safe to say I am an aesthetic treatment junkie haha. If I really had to pick just one treatment to get the rest of my life, I think it would have to be SkinPen..or maybe Morpheus 8… I can’t choose! You really can’t go wrong with anything that stimulates collagen!
Madison Stricklin, Registered Nurse
Hello! My name is Madison Stricklin. I am a Registered Nurse and am currently a Nurse Practitioner student anticipating to graduate with my FNP at the end of 2022. I have specialized in Aesthetic Dermatology for 4 years now. I am continuing my education in order to provide my patients with the highest level of care. I love being an aesthetic nurse because my passion is to help men and women feel confident in their own skin.
I was personally introduced to the aesthetics field when I was once a patient myself. I have struggled with cystic acne since elementary school and when I was finally old enough to treat acne scarring with various lasers, I fell in love with all things SKIN! Having acne all over my face was a huge insecurity for me. Now that I have finally removed my one insecurity about my skin, I feel even more passionate about helping others feel comfortable in their own skin and helping to make people feel and believe the beauty they already had within.
Likes: I like to snowboard in the winter time, hang out with friends and family, and take mini weekend getaways in the summer months!
Favorite Treatment: My favorite treatment to get myself is Botox! I love that this magical little drug can create subtle yet drastic changes in the face with virtually no downtime!
