Harvard Trained and Board Certified
Dr. Mike specializes in cosmetic surgery tailored to your specific goals. He combines his innovative world class training at Harvard with discriminating eye and artistry to achieve the best possible result for each individual. Patients repeatedly express that they knew instantly that they had met a special, caring, and uniquely talented surgeon, that above all else would listen to their needs and work with them to achieve their ideal image. As with everything he does, Dr. Frederick brings a constant pursuit of perfection to his surgeries. He loves plastic surgery because of its powerful effects on self-esteem, self-confidence, and overall well-being. His patients love plastic surgery for the same reasons, though many might not realize it before surgery, they certainly recognize this afterwards.
After graduating Summa Cum Laude from UCLA, he attended medical school at the prestigious University of California, San Francisco, notably ranked third in the country. There, he was awarded the Dean’s Scholarship and received research grants to study transplant immunology, which would help him later in life as he participated on the plastic surgery team in two of the world’s first face transplantations at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Frederick was the ideal candidate to take part in complex medical cases such as these, as he had graduated at the top of his class and was awarded the highest final adjective of “Superior”.
In addition to his training at Harvard, he studied at The Pitanguy Clinic in Rio De Janiero, Brazil, learning the most advanced techniques in aesthetic surgery. “Cookie cutter plastic surgery just doesn’t work anymore,” says Dr. Frederick. “Modern concepts have completely changed the approach to plastic surgery from strictly excision (taking away) to now sculpting, shaping and transforming bodies, much like Michelangelo. The most important thing to me is listening to the patient, understanding what their goals are and then creating that vision. When people feel good about their image it positively impacts every aspect of their lives,” Dr Frederick says. “They stand taller, walk with purpose and enter a room with confidence. My goal as a plastic surgeon is to help my patients be their best selves.”
