Comprehensive Experience

As a residency and fellowship-trained plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Rey is experienced in all facets of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Rey’s education took him all across the country. He brings to his practice education and experience from Tufts Medical School, UCLA School of Medicine, University of Tennessee Medical Center, and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Rey went on to earn a fellowship at Harvard Medical School’s Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, where he focused on plastic surgery.

Innovative Techniques

His fellowship at Harvard Medical School’s Beth Israel Deaconess hospital introduced him to minimal-scar surgical techniques like endoscopy, fiber optics, and lasers. He has since aided in the development of the transumbilical breast augmentation procedure. Performed by just a handful of surgeons, this procedure provides women the augmentation they desire with no visible scarring. Dr. Rey is also known for the low and smaller incision tummy tucks as well as the Brazilian Butt Lift, where fat is suctioned from areas such as the abdomen and thighs and then transferred to the buttocks. Silicone implants can also be placed through a tummy tuck incision, leaving no scars on the breasts. Dr. Rey has discussed these innovative techniques on CBS, the WB, E!, Elle Magazine, and numerous foreign media outlets.
