Assistant Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery ( Spartanburg) 
Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina

As with any surgical procedure, it is imperative to choose a surgeon who is not only qualified to perform your surgery – but one who is highly skilled and who has much experience in that procedure.  Dr. Lettieri is a double board certified plastic surgeon who  has performed hundreds of  breast reconstruction surgeries, using his specialized techniques, and he performs them regularly. He understands that helping his patients achieve their realistic goals - not only improves/enhances their physical appearance – but boosts their self-esteem, self-confidence and overall emotional well-being also.


Dr. Lettieri is also highly skilled and expert in other surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures.  Dr. Lettieri was one of the first surgeons in the United States to use lasers extensively in cosmetic facial surgery.  Please visit our cosmetic plastic surgery website for information on other procedures.
