Specializing in Cosmetic Surgery, Oculoplastic Surgery, Facial Plastic Surgery, Breast Cancer Reconstructive Surgery Plastic Surgery is Reconstruction.

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Pacella believes every anatomic body part, be it the face, eyes, breast or body, has a unique function that cannot be separated from its aesthetic appearance. If you have been injured, suffered from cancer or disease, or simply do not like the appearance of aging, your anatomy must not only be restored to a natural and youthful appearance, but it must function as nature intende

Drs. Sam Jejurikar , Salvatore Pacella , and Sam Rhee discuss the new FDA safety requirements and the updated study results for breast implants. Recently the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a "black box" warning for breast implants. What does that scary-sounding term mean for patients?

Today we say to another one of my great of . Dr. Haskell “Hack” Newman. He was one of the original founding members of The Rhinoplasty Society. He taught me VOLUMES about one of my favorite operations, .

A 1959 graduate of the University of Oklahoma, Dr. Newman attended medical school at the University of Tennessee, graduating with his M.D. degree in 1962. He received an advanced degree in Physiological Acoustics from the University of Michigan in 1968. Following his Otorhinolaryngology residency at the University o Michigan, he began his career in 1971 in the ENT department and transferred to Plastic Surgery as a resident in 1975, training under Bill Grabb. After completing his training, he remained at Michigan as head of the craniofacial anomalies program until 1983. He then practiced at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital from 1983 until re-joining the faculty of Plastic Surgery in 1988 as leader in the craniofacial anomalies program.

Dr. Newman continued his lifelong interest in cosmetic surgery, specializing in rhinoplasty and pediatric plastic surgery. Querying Dr. Newman about his experience in plastic surgery he says, "My greatest achievement in clinical practice was survival, survival, survival." Dr. Newman claimed his greatest passion in clinical surgery is training residents. Man, did he live that.
