Dr. O’Gradys Plastic Surgery Practice

Dr. O’Grady’s practice is a mixture of both Reconstructive and Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Dr. O’Grady feels that this balance is an effective method for transferring knowledge and skills between two distinct disciplines within Plastic Surgery. Aesthetic patients benefit from lessons learned from reconstructive procedures in the same way that advances in cosmetic procedures lead to better reconstructive results.
