Professional Statement

Although Dr. Steven Svehlak is now a practicing plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, he came from the small quiet town of Oxford, Connecticut. He attended the University of Connecticut, where he received a bachelor of science in biology. He received his medical degree at New York Medical College in 1994. While at medical school, he was introduced to many different areas of medicine but ultimately chose surgery. During his five years in general surgery residency at Stamford Hospital in Stamford, Connecticut, Dr. Svehlak was introduced to the art of plastic surgery. He was immediately intrigued with the field, as he found himself being able to work with patients directly as a plastic surgeon and help them reach the image they desired. “Not only will I be able to restore beauty and function,” shared Dr. Svehlak, “but also improve a persons self-image and confidence.” Dr. Svehlak sought further plastic surgeon training and completed an intense and highly competitive plastic surgery program at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., in 2001. He learned the techniques of reconstructive surgery, including those applied in cancer, breast, and trauma surgeries. Dr. Svehlak gained additional training at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where he focused on facial reconstructive surgery, including cleft lip and palate. He also became quite experienced in treating many types of congenital hand deformities.
