Meet the Staff


Certified Aesthetic Nurse Injector

Tiffany (BSN, RN) is a native Bostonian who graduated with a degree in communications from the University of California, Santa Barbara.  Her passion for helping others led her to pursue a Bachelor of Science in nursing through an accelerated BSN program at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. She has been an essential attribute to Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery since 2015.  As an aesthetic nurse injector, Tiffany is recognized for her ability to provide treatments tailored to each individual and their aesthetic desires.  She understands that each patient is their own unique canvas and will provide natural results that align with the golden ratio of each individual’s structure and anatomy.  As a self -proclaimed perfectionist, Tiffany strives to make each and every patient happy and to enhance their confidence when they leave her chair.  Every one of her patients knows that she is fully invested in their care from beginning to end.  She takes great pride in her work and continuously works towards expanding her knowledge.  Outside of her career, she enjoys spending time with her two vivacious golden retrievers, going to the beach, Muay Thai, paddle boarding, and just about every water activity you can think of.


Plastic Surgery Assistant/Coordinator

As a surgical technologist, Linnea is an integral part of our surgical team. Linnea helps maintain a safe protocol for surgical cases, preparing the operating rooms and assisting Dr. Basu during surgery.  In addition, she helps to maintain supplies and vendor relationships. When she’s not assisting in surgery, she’s providing quality preoperative and postoperative care to our patients. Linnea was born and raised in Tyler, TX. She completed her CST in 2010 during which she was awarded Dean’s List each semester. Dr. Basu took early notice of her exceptional skillset in the operating room, her unconditional commitment to the patient, and her attention to fine details (great minds think and work alike).  Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery recruited her from the hospital over six year ago.  She always looks forward to spending quality time with her kids, off-roading in her Jeep, and last but certainly not least, football season (Go Texans!). Linnea has a passion for assisting others and helping our patients achieve their aesthetic goals while helping them feel good about themselves.
