Todd Lefkowitz, M.D., a dual Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and native South Carolinian, began his Plastic Surgery Practice at LMC after completing the prestigious Aesthetic Surgery Fellowship at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital (MEETH)/Lenox Hill Hospital under the direct tutelage of Dr. Sherrell Aston. Dr. Lefkowitz is one of a select few fully-trained Plastic Surgeons in the United States who have undergone additional formal post-graduate training in Aesthetic Surgery.
Prior to this, Dr. Lefkowitz graduated Cum Laude from Tulane University.
Following his time in New Orleans, he returned to his home state where he earned
his Medical Degree at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.
He then completed the General Surgery Residency program at St. Vincent’s Hospital
and Medical Center— New York Medical College in Manhattan, New York.
This experience culminated with Dr. Lefkowitz obtaining his Board Certification
in General Surgery by the American Board of Surgery. It was also during this time
he discovered his passion for the field of Plastic Surgery.
This led him to pursue further formal training in Plastic Surgery at
the University of Louisville under the leadership of Dr. Bradon J. Wilhelmi.
The high clinical volume and academically rigorous studies allowed Dr. Lefkowitz to be trained in the latest Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgical techniques including Microsurgery of the Breast for Reconstruction. He was also presented with the Resident Teaching Award as well as The Research Award during his training in Louisville.
After his Plastic Surgery training, Dr. Lefkowitz was selected for the highly competitive Aesthetic Surgery Fellowship in New York City. During this additional year, he focused solely on Cosmetic Surgery of the Face, Breast, and Body. His mentors included Drs. Sherrell Aston, Alan Matarasso, and Nicolas Tabbal, some of the most respected authorities in the world within the field of Aesthetic Surgery. During this time, he had independent operating privileges, running his own cosmetic clinic as well as supervising Senior Plastic Surgery Residents from NYU and Cornell Universities.
Dr. Lefkowitz is excited to come home and join the exceptional staff
at Lexington Medical Center.
