Professional Statement

Dr. Susan Downey is a board certified plastic surgeon who has been in practice in the Los Angeles area for 22 years. Dr Downey's practice covers the full range of plastic surgery from cosmetic surgery such as facelifts, breast augmentations, and abdominoplasties, and other body contouring procedures to reconstructive procedures such as breast reductions and breast reconstruction after cancer treatments. A significant portion of Dr. Downey’s practice is the reconstruction of the breast after cancer treatments. She works closely with the oncologic breast surgeons as well as the medical oncologists and radiation oncologists to maximize the reconstructive results. She is always working to help improve the reconstructive results and was recently an investigator in a study to evaluate the use of Seri Surgical Scaffold in primary breast reconstruction. She is currently involved in a study to evaluate the use of Air Expanders for breast reconstruction.
