Professional Statement

Harvard trained, board certified Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Michael K. Obeng, MD, FACS, was named among “America’s Top Plastic Surgeons” by the Consumer’s Research Council of America in 2011. He specializes in cosmetic surgery of the aging face, neck, breast, body, trunk, extremities and genitalia. Dr. Obeng is among the rare, few surgeons in the world to successfully reattach a limb, and he is an expert in complex reconstructive surgery, hand, and microneurovascular surgery. Currently on staff at Cedars Sinai Hospital, and the former Chief of Plastic Surgery at St. Elizabeth Health Center – one of the most prestigious hospitals in the country – Dr. Obeng brings years of experience and innovative ways of solving complex cosmetic and reconstructive surgical dilemmas. His clientele comprises of royalty and celebrities, but also includes some of the world’s most unfortunate patients. Born into poverty in Ghana, Dr. Obeng persevered over unimaginable obstacles and overcame all odds to arrive at this culmination of professional and personal success. He takes pride in treating each patient like family; his deep compassion and care for his patients is derived from his humble beginnings. Dr. Obeng travels to third world countries to donate his surgical skills through his non-profit, R.E.S.T.O.R.E Worldwide Inc. In addition, Dr. Obeng advocates for the underprivileged in the United States by educating patients on safe breast reconstructive surgery options available after undergoing breast cancer treatment. Dr. Obeng has garnered prestigious awards including a research grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the coveted, Herman B. Barnett award in Surgery and Anesthesia. He has extensive international publications regarding breast aesthetics, augmentation and reconstruction. When he is not lecturing on plastic surgery, he can be found donating his time with R.E.S.T.O.R.E and delivering his award-winning motivational speech, Perseverance.
