Justin West, M.D., is a Board-Certified plastic surgeon who specializes in a variety of surgical procedures including breast and body. Dr. West has advanced fellowship training in aesthetic surgery of the face, breast, and body. As the son of a nurse and surgeon, Dr. West knew that he would pursue a career in medicine at a very young age.

Dr. West received his Bachelor of Arts from Pomona College in Claremont, CA, and his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. He then interned in the surgical laboratory at the University of California, Irvine, where he helped test new technologies for heart bypass surgery. During this time, he published journal articles on trauma and cardiac surgery.

After his internship, Dr. West attended a prestigious six-year integrated residency program in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC, where he trained under world-renowned surgeons in aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery.

After completing his residency, Dr. West pursued a subspecialty in aesthetic surgery at the distinguished Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital. During this year, he gained extensive experience and studied advanced techniques in cosmetic surgery of the face and body under the direction of internationally recognized experts. He was also a mentor and instructor for plastic surgery residents from NYU and Cornell University.

Dr. West has worked with the KCNT1 Epilepsy Foundation throughout the last few years to increase awareness of this rare mutation that his son carries.
