Adam Hamawy, MD, FACS

Dr. Adam Hamawy is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, specializing in reconstructive procedures. Trained at UT Southwestern Medical and Weill Cornell School—two of the most well-respected institutions for plastic surgery, Dr. Hamawy subsequently became a Lt. Colonel in the U.S. Army. A tour of duty in Iraq and several years in Tacoma, Washington at the Madigan Army Medical Center afforded him the opportunity to treat a wide variety of patients. “Few surgeons are fortunate enough to have been exposed to this depth, breadth and sheer complexity of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. I attribute my highly developed surgical skills to my Army experience.” Going beyond what is expected is at the heart of Dr. Hamawy’s approach. He strongly believes every patient must be considered as a person first and foremost. Only then can technical expertise be used to its greatest advantage – translating subtle nuances into a more positive self-image through surgery. Dr. Hamawy sees his role as being a combination of technician, artist, and teacher. Patients have so many choices today and nothing takes the place of patient education. A good plastic surgeon might have the technical skill, but a great plastic surgeon recognizes their role as a doctor also encompasses a psychological and social element. Surgeons that embrace the fact that they are at once students, practitioners and teachers for a lifetime are truly the elite in the specialty. Dr. Hamawy’s philosophy is to avoid extremes, make each procedure unique to the patient and exercise the right to say no when necessary. Dr. Hamawy wants both reconstructive and aesthetic patients to look normal. Unfortunately, plenty of evidence exists of those who look “overdone.” There is a difference between obvious augmentation and a subtle enhancement. If someone asks what you’ve had “done,” then the surgeon has failed.
