Division of Plastic Surgery

Recognized both nationally and regionally for their expertise, Penn’s plastic surgeons are leaders in the field of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. Students studying to become plastic surgeons come from around the world to meet and learn from our surgeons.

Among the Nation’s Best
On the leading edge of plastic surgery, our surgeons combine the latest technology with their expertise to provide patients with the best possible treatments. They are pioneers in craniofacial surgery and microsurgery.

Craniofacial surgery includes skeletal reconstruction of congenital anomalies, reconstruction following tumor and trauma, cleft lip and palate surgery, and cosmetic facial surgery.

Reconstructive microsurgery addresses improving appearance and function for a host of complex reconstructive problems including breast reconstruction.

Our faculty members are experts in cosmetic surgery including:

  • facial cosmetic surgery
  • breast surgery
  • liposuction
  • abdominoplasty

Our comprehensive and diverse abilities enable us to offer treatments that may not be found at other clinical centers.

Treatments Individualized for Your Needs
Whether you come to us with deformities or defects of any area of the body or trouble with the function of your face or hands, our surgeons can help.

Each of our surgeons maintains a subspecialty interest within the field of plastic surgery, such as the face, hands, trunk or extremities. This allows us to provide specialized expertise specific to your particular needs.

We also work together in cases where more than one area of expertise is required, thus giving you a team of extremely well qualified and experienced surgeons and support staff.

Dedicated to Improving Patient Care
Established in 1988, the Edwin and Fanny Gray Hall Center for Human Appearance was the first center of its kind in the world. It is dedicated to the serious study of appearance and has furthered aspects of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures that result from trauma, cancer or birth defects.

Center consultants have expertise in primary and secondary facial reconstruction, breast reconstruction, treatment of aging skin, and bone contouring, as well as more routine surgery for the nose, chin, jaw, and face.
