ABOUT FREDERICK EKO, MD FACS
After finishing his undergraduate studies at UCLA and completing medical school at UC Irvine, Dr. Eko underwent rigorous General Surgery training at Berkshire Medical Center, an affiliate of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He then completed fellowship training in aesthetic, reconstructive and microsurgery at Tulane University Hospital & Clinics. As a result of a long-standing love of California and the pull of family ties, Dr. Eko then decided to return to California to pursue a Plastic Surgery practice.
Today, Dr. Eko sees his work not merely as improving or restoring form and function to the face, breasts or body; but also as enabling a more fulfilling sense of physical and mental well-being. He insists on natural-appearing solutions to aesthetic concerns; never overdone, that improve appearance and confidence.
