AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) — Doctors Christopher Ewart and Randolph Smith of Augusta Plastic Surgery are pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Michael S. Tarakji to their practice.
Dr. Tarakji will provide a variety of surgical and nonsurgical treatments, both cosmetic and reconstructive, according to a press release. Being well trained in all aspects of plastic surgery, he is able to perform both common and complex reconstructive procedures in areas such as breast reconstruction after cancer, breast reductions, skin cancer reconstruction, hand surgery and wound care. In the cosmetic realm, he is adept at performing minimally invasive injections as well as more involved face lifts, body contouring, and cosmetic breast surgery.
Dr. Tarakjis interest in plastic surgery began in medical school when his aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer. Seeing something taken away from a woman and then watching their confidence restored again made me realize what a profound difference plastic surgery can make, Tarakji said, There is nothing I value more than my patients trust and together creating an individual plan to achieve the best surgical outcome.
Dr. Tarakji attended West Virginia University where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Communications and was inducted as a member of Golden Key International Honor Society, Beta Beta Beta Biological Honor Society, and Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. He earned his medical degree at West Virginia University School of Medicine and completed residency in General Surgery at St. John Hospital & Medical Center in Detroit, MI. Dr. Tarakji completed Fellowship Training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans where he was inducted into the Cohn-Rives Surgical Society for the LSU Department of Surgery. He is Board Certified in General Surgery by the American Board of Surgery.
Dr. Tarakji was recently published in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Global Open for his case report Using the Venous Pectoral Branch from the Thoracoacromial System as a Lifeboat in Autologous Breast Reconstruction.
Augusta Plastic Surgery is committed to providing the highest quality patient care. Doctors Ewart and Smith selected Dr. Tarakji with their patients in mind and are confident he will bring that same level of care to the practice.
