I always wanted to be a doctor. Even as a kid, it’s the only profession I ever wanted to pursue. After starting my studies in med school, I realized that plastic surgery is what I love—to hear a patient’s story and work out how to make things better for them, whether that’s making cosmetic changes or restoring their body following cancer or trauma, is a privilege. There’s no greater reward for me than seeing a patient’s confidence and outlook improve after their procedure.– Dr. Frank P. Albino

After completing his residency as the Administrative Chief Resident, Dr. Albino went on to complete a year-long Microsurgery Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania, where he trained in advanced microsurgical techniques for breast reconstruction and other reconstructive procedures.
My residency training at Georgetown provided me with a solid foundation in the full depth and breadth of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery for the face, breast and body. Then, with my Microsurgery Fellowship, I had the opportunity to refine my techniques in tissue FLAP breast reconstruction and achieve even better results for my patients. – Dr. Frank P. Albino
