About

Bio

Dr. Maria LoTempio is a board certified plastic surgeons specializing in natural breast reconstruction techniques. She is one of only a few surgeons worldwide qualified to perform Breast Flap Reconstruction and offer it as an option for women affected by breast cancer. This state of the art procedure makes use of one’s own tissue from various donor site throughout the body to reconstruct a breast that is made of the patient’s own anatomy. Unlike breast reconstructive procedures that make use of prosthesis, with Flap procedures, the risk of the body rejecting the new breast is significantly decreased as there is no foreign object present that the body does not recognize. As this technique is highly specialized and may not be an option for all women, Dr. LoTempio also performs reconstruction using implant therapy. She uses only implants manufactured in the US, to guarantee that her patients are only offered safe, state of the art products. In addition to her specialty in breast reconstruction for cancer survivors, Dr. LoTempio is also caters to patients who are looking toward cosmetic plastic surgery as an option. Some popular procedures she performs are, but are not limited to, cosmetic breast implants, breast augmentation (mastopexy), breast reduction, liposuction, labdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and buttock augmentation (Brazilian Butt Lift). In conjunction with her board certification in Plastic Surgery, Dr. Lotempio hold dual board certification in Otolaryngology (surgery of the head and neck), thus giving her an advantage in the techniques used for facial plastic surgery. She performs popular procedures such as rhinoplasty, rhytidectomy (face lift), bletheroplasty (eye lift). Her familiarity with the structure of the face and its muscles also make her an ideal administrator of cosmetic injectables and fillers. LoTempio Plastic Surgery for Women offers a wide array of cosmetic injectables and are all administered by Dr. LoTempio herself.
