DR. LEIF O. NORDBERG divides his practice between cosmetic and reconstructive surgery at Nordberg Plastic Surgery Center, following the philosophy: “It’s safety first, plastic surgery second.”
Dr. Nordberg, who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, has a fully accredited operating room at his center, where he performs cosmetic procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tucks) and face-lifts. In every cosmetic surgery he strives for “youthful and natural-looking results.” Reconstructive surgeries are performed at Stamford Hospital, and include breast reconstruction for breast cancer patients, skin cancer treatment and surgery for traumatic injuries. His aesthetic eye and dedication to his patients have earned him the reputation as “the doctor’s plastic surgeon.”
Dr. Nordberg has always taken the approach of doing what is best for the patient and nothing less than what he would do for a member of his own family. He enjoys educating patients on procedures to ensure a full and complete understanding of the surgery and recovery. Having the benefit of a private operating suite and a close-knit and well-qualified office staff also help patients feel comfortable with whatever procedure they have chosen.
“Choosing to have surgery is always a big decision, and today’s patients probably know more than ever,” he says. “Through the Internet patients will obtain much information, sometimes helpful but sometimes inaccurate. It gives me great pleasure to meet someone for the first time and take them through the very rewarding process of aesthetic enhancement.”
Dr. Nordberg says that the greatest satisfaction he receives is the reaction he gets from a happy patient. “When I perform a procedure and the patient returns to let me know of the compliments they’ve received, that’s what I live for,” he says.
Dr. Nordberg attended Franklin and Marshall College and earned a master’s degree in biomedical sciences from Drexel University. Following his graduation from the Temple University School of Medicine and five years of general surgery residency at Temple University Hospital, he completed a fellowship in plastic and reconstructive surgery at Wake Forest University School of Medicine.
