Penn Plastic Surgery Chief Resident’s Clinic

An integral part of the Penn Plastic Surgery training program, the Chief Resident’s Clinic has performed cosmetic surgery of the highest quality for over 25 years. We offer a wide variety of cosmetic procedures using the most up-to-date techniques. Although we specialize in aesthetic Penn Plastic Surgery Clinicsurgery, non-surgical treatments including fillers, laser resurfacing, and botulinum toxin injections are also available. Fees are substantially reduced for procedures and consultations.

Chief Residents perform all procedures under supervision of Penn Plastic Surgery Faculty.
Each resident has completed a minimum of five years of highly specialized training within the Division of Plastic Surgery and is in his or her final year of training prior to becoming a plastic surgeon.
