A Holistic Approach to Surgery

Dr. Gina Maccarone joins the Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center team at their new Springboro office.

Plastic surgery has more to do with compassionate care than some may think, according to Dr. Gina Maccarone, an associate cosmetic surgeon at the Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center-Springboro. Dr. Maccarone’s holistic approach to surgery means she pays attention not only to the physical aspect but also to the emotional factors that may impact the patient's self-esteem and confidence. She works closely with her patients to create a treatment plan that is tailored to their individual needs and goals, with a focus on achieving a natural, beautiful result.

“What we do in this field is much more than surgery, injections, or lasers. Patients should feel empowered when they look in the mirror which can improve their quality of life,” says Dr. Maccarone.

She recently joined the Plastic Surgery Experts at the Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center after almost 10 years as a general and critical care surgeon. The addition of Dr. Maccarone has allowed them to open a new office in Springboro. This expansion will help them offer their services to a wider range of patients in Springboro, Dayton and Centerville in need of cosmetic and aesthetic surgery. 

Dr. Maccarone is a native of the Cincinnati area and attended the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. While she is accomplished in general and critical care surgery, having completed fourteen years of education and an additional eight years of practice, Dr. Maccarone’s passion has always been in cosmetic and aesthetic surgery. She was fortunate enough to have completed an American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery Fellowship under the guidance of Dr. Mark Mandell-Brown, a highly respected plastic surgeon in the Cincinnati area.

The addition of Dr. Maccarone to the team at the Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center represents a significant expansion in the practice's capabilities. 

Dr. Maccarone brings with her a wealth of knowledge, experience and surgical skill. Her professionalism and commitment to patient-centered care have earned her the respect of her peers. She is excited to fulfill her dream of becoming a cosmetic surgeon in the Dayton/Cincinnati area.

“It has been my lifelong dream to become a plastic surgeon because, throughout my life, the love of fashion, art and surgery have all been intertwined. I am so passionate about them that I coined the term ‘Surgeonista’ to integrate surgery and the artistry of fashion. I hope to set an example that women can function expertly in a male-dominated field and not lose an ounce of what makes them feminine.”

In fact, as part of her expert practice, she performs every procedure in pink shoes.

The Plastic Surgery Experts at The Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center are already known for providing top-quality face and body cosmetic surgery. They offer a full range of surgical and non-surgical options to enhance appearance and improve quality of life. 

Dr. Maccarone’s areas of focus include liposuction, fat transfer, breast augmentation, breast lifts, tummy tucks, eyelid surgery, facelifts, brow lifts, ear reshaping or repair, Botox treatments, and soft tissue fillers such as Restylane, Sculptra, and RHA, as well as skin care services and products.

Meghan Johnson, the anesthesia director at The Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center expressed her excitement about the new addition to the team. “With her approachable personality, and sensitivity to patient’s needs, combined with her surgical skill, the best in town just got better.”

As a doctor who prioritizes the patient's needs, desires, and expectations, and takes into account their unique circumstances and history, she is an excellent testament to her profession.

As Dr. Maccarrone says, “We are all as beautiful as we see ourselves, and the most important part of my job is helping my patients reveal that person."
