Making the decision to have a cosmetic or a plastic and reconstructive surgerical procedure to improve your appearance usually does not occur without first experiencing some apprehension.  It's a serious consideration.  And as if not to make matters more complex, many health care providers are now performing medical cosmetic procedures and plastic and reconstructive surgery.  Unfortunately that does not mean they are all qualified. 

So just how do you begin to sort through the maze of  marketing and "media hype" to select a plastic surgeon with the qualifications and experience to perform your plastic and/or reconstructive procedure?

A great place to begin is by seeking-out board certified plastic surgeons with exceptional reputations, interviewing them, reviewing his/her "Before and After" photos of the procedure you are considering and establishing a patient-physician relationship with a surgeon member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons who best meets all your criteria. 


Surgeon members are trained in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures of all types.  Members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. 

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons is approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties to certify physicians in plastic
surgery of the face and all areas of the body.  Having this added certification goes above and beyond industry standard, to ensure you are truly working with a surgeon who has surpassed stringent qualifications.

Whether you are considering a medical cosmetic procedure, plastic and/or  reconstructive surgery, you will want the skill, expertise and reassurance of a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon.

Dr. Cynthia Gray has been a leading Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon since 1997.  Cynthia's also
a local visionary who very early on saw the need and the benefits for her patients, when combining her Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery practice with state-of-the-art Medi /Age Rejuvenation Spa services.  And Cynthia has been proud to serve patients in both Vancouver, Washington and Portland, Oregon since 1991.

Cynthia D. Gray, MD
Board Certified
Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon

Cynthia was born in Guadalajara, Mexico and relocated with her parents to the Pacific Northwest where her father chose to establish a family medical practice.  She was raised along with seven siblings in the Vancouver, Washington and Portland, Oregon area, and has remained here ever since. 

Cynthia's father went on to become a leading family practitioner in Vancouver, Washington and Portland, Oregon, and a role model for Cynthia and other local physicians and surgeons like her, who share the philosophy of effective patient-centered results.  A quiet culture of physicians and surgeons solely focused, from start-to-finish, on exceeding expectations and achieving the best possible results for each individual patient.  Physicians and surgeons not out to be "the biggest" but rather, those who strive on a daily basis and with every patient relationship, to be considered among "the best" in their fields.

Reconstructive surgery sometimes associated with radical efforts to stop the spread of cancer eventually became a passion of Cynthia's and an area of her expertise and as such, she's become a driving force behind bringing some of the latest reconstruction advancements to breast cancer patients in the Vancouver and Portland area.  In 1998 Cynthia's mother Janet succumbed to cancer, and her father followed shortly after in 2001, also from cancer. 

Dr. Gray's commitment to supporting and making a positive difference in the lives of as many cancer treatment patients as she can, provides Cynthia with a tremendous amount of personal satisfaction.

Cynthia believes that the best results in plastic and reconstructive surgery come when a surgeon listens to each patient's objectives, when she/he communicates frankly about the realistic results of a proposed procedure and when a surgeon takes her/his time in order to produce the best possible medical cosmetic enhancement and/or surgical result.
