Plastic surgeon Dr. Malhotra lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with his wife, twin children, and their beloved Australian shepherd. He enjoys practicing yoga, skiing, and indulging his sweet tooth.
Dr. Malhotra is more than just a plastic surgeon serving his Michigan patients; he is a student of the arts as well. Recently, he completed a sculpting class, the results of which reside in an encasement in the Ann Arbor office. A bit of mystery surrounds that sculpture. In fact, Dr. Malhotra believes that located somewhere within it is his lost wedding ring, evidence of how much he “gets into” his art. As usual, his wife remains unimpressed.
