Plastic Surgeon, Athena Plastic Surgery – New Radiance
Art and design is very important to Dr. Avron Lipschitz, who draws from his interest in fine art for his work as a board certified plastic surgeon at Athena Plastic Surgery in Stuart and Port St. Lucie.
“Plastic surgery is an art and a science, and it’s important to find a balance of the two,” he says. “It’s about judgment and taste.”
Dr. Lipschitz, who grew up in Cape Town, South Africa and completed residencies in Dallas and John Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, specializes in creating individualized plans for his patients seeking facial rejuvenation, as well as reconstruction following breast or skin cancer treatments. New technologies, such as grafting with stem cell-enriched fat, have allowed him to offer a combination of minimally invasive treatments to provide impressive results, he says.
“The reason I’m in plastic surgery is you can make a huge difference in people’s lives by using your technical skills, knowledge and creative problem solving,” the 39-year-old says.
Married to Joanne, who is a designer, Dr. Lipschitz moved to Stuart because “the area has so much to offer.” He enjoys spending time with his wife and two children as well as creating clay and wooden sculptures, collecting contemporary art and designing bonsai trees.
