Division of Plastic Surgery


For over 100 years, our practice has been the Division of Plastic Surgery at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

Jefferson Plastic Surgery is located at the corner of 9th and Walnut Streets in Center City, Philadelphia on the 15th floor of the Wills Eye Hospital Building. Our 10,000 square foot office complex has eight exam suites as well as a full service aesthetician suite.

Although all major surgeries are performed in a hospital with anesthesia, smaller procedures with local anesthesia such as scar revision and excisions of skin lesion can be performed in the office. Excisions of dermatologic skin lesions are sent to pathology for a full evaluation. Insurance coverage is applicable for plastic surgical care as it would be for any excision performed by a dermatologist.

Our plastic surgeons work closely with breast surgeons at the Jefferson Breast Care Center to offer the latest breast reconstruction techniques. We also have expertise in cosmetic surgery and non-surgical treatments.
