“Bitten” by Plastic Surgery
Some people are lucky enough to get a glimpse into their future professions as children. For Dr. Gallaher, a traumatic childhood experience illuminated his future as a plastic surgeon. As a child, he was bitten in the face by a family dog, which required the expertise of a plastic surgeon in order to minimize visible scarring. He experienced firsthand how a skillful plastic surgeon can help patients recover from trauma, preserving a sense of wholeness and minimizing scarring. Dr. Gallaher knew his future immediately, and was set on a path to become a plastic and reconstructive surgeon.
Now, many years later, his appreciation for the profession and his sensitivity toward patients have made him an excellent and compassionate surgeon. See for yourself by scheduling a consultation with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Tom Gallaher.
