When people feel good about their image it positively impacts every aspect of their life. They stand taller, walk with purpose, and enter a room with confidence. My goal as a plastic surgeon is help my patients be their best selves. I try to combine my world top training at Harvard with a discriminating eye and an artistic sense to achieve the best possible results in each individual. And above all... I listen to the patient, because plastic surgery is all about you!

Dr. Frederick demonstrates a dedication to his work that is evident from the moment he shakes your hand. Patients know instantly that they have met a special, caring, and uniquely talented surgeon who will listen to their needs and work with them to meet their cosmetic surgery goals.

After graduating Summa Cum Laude from UCLA, he attended medical school at the prestigious University of California, San Francisco. There, he was awarded the Dean’s Scholarship and received research grants to study transplant immunology, which would help him later in life as he participated in two of the world’s first face transplantations as part of the plastic surgery team at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.

He attended Harvard University for his plastic surgery training, and was selected by the faculty to serve as Chief Resident at the renowned Massachusetts General Hospital. While there he authored several articles, including book chapters and publications in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Annals of Plastic Surgery. He also was invited to speak on novel surgical techniques at several national plastic surgery meetings.

In addition to his training at Harvard, he studied at The Pitanguy Clinic in Rio De Janiero, Brazil, learning the most advanced techniques in aesthetic surgery. ‘Cookie cutter plastic surgery just doesn’t work anymore,’ says Dr. Frederick. ‘Modern concepts have completely changed the approach to plastic surgery from strictly excisional (taking away) to now sculpting, shaping and transforming bodies much like Michaelangelo. The most important thing to me is listening to the patient, understanding what their goals are and then creating that vision.”

Outside of the operating room you’ll find Dr. Mike at the beach, scuba diving, playing racquetball or spending time with his German shepherd Whinnie and his golden retriever Murphy. He often volunteers at local breast and ovarian cancer fundraisers in memory of his sister who carried the BRCA 2 gene. He also enjoys helping others through humanitarian missions to repair cleft lips and palates in Brazil and Colombia, a passion further complemented by the fact that he is part Colombian and speaks fluent Spanish.

As with everything he does, Dr. Frederick brings a constant pursuit of perfection to his surgeries. He loves plastic surgery because of its powerful effects on self-esteem, self-confidence, and overall well-being. His patients love plastic surgery for the same reasons. They may not realize it before surgery, but they definitely do afterwards.
