Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Allen Gabriel understands that plastic and reconstructive surgery provides a unique opportunity to deal with a wide variety of needs ranging from addressing congenital anomalies, to breast reconstruction following mastectomy, to aesthetic procedures such as breast and facial cosmetic procedures. A member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons®, Dr. Gabriel has the extensive training and education that make him an excellent choice for patients.

Dr. Gabriel is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. The letters FACS (Fellow, American College of Surgeons) after a surgeon's name mean that the surgeon's education and training, professional qualifications, surgical competence, and ethical conduct have passed a rigorous evaluation, and have been found to be consistent with the high standards established and demanded by the College.

In 2001, Dr. Gabriel was chosen by the prestigious Loma Linda University to join the Integrated Plastic Surgery Residency Program. While at Loma Linda University, he volunteered on a medical mission to Ethiopia with Operation Good Samaritan. In addition, he served on several leadership committees and was the chief resident prior to completing his residency.

In 2007, Dr. Gabriel was selected by world-renowned plastic surgeon Dr. G. Patrick Maxwell to enter a Breast and Aesthetic Surgery Fellowship in conjunction with Baptist Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee. Completion of this program provided him with advanced training in Breast and Aesthetic Surgery.

Since 1995, Dr. Gabriel has authored more than five dozen abstracts and chapters in peer-reviewed publications. Some of these articles are available online and we invite you to browse them. They include articles on liposuction, tummy tuck, breast anatomy and breast embryology. More publications can be viewed on “Our Surgical Team” page at http://www.swplasticsurg.com/publications.
