Leif O. Nordberg divides his practice between cosmetic and reconstructive surgery following the philosophy: “It’s safety first, plastic surgery second.” As new less-invasive techniques have become available, Dr. Nordberg has incorporated those with the highest safety records making sure the results also measure up to his standards. He is currently seeing wonderful success with Coolsculpting®, a non-surgical minimally invasive method of fat reduction. This procedure and other cosmetic procedures are performed in Dr. Nordberg’s fully accredited center. He is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and performs cosmetic procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and face-lifts. In every cosmetic surgery Dr. Nordberg 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. 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 have also contributed to patients feeling comfortable and satisfied. Dr. Nordberg feels strongly that plastic surgery is an adjunct to a healthy lifestyle. “When a patient decides to make a change to their face and/or body it is a major decision that usually comes from years of consideration. It can also bring about a huge boost in self-esteem that then changes one’s outlook and promotes a drive to maintain a youthful appearance.” Dr. Nordberg attended Franklin and Marshall College and earned a master’s degree in biomedical sciences from Drexel University. Following his graduation from 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.
