Redefining What It Means To Be Beautiful and Why I Am A Plastic Surgeon

At the age of 9 I was involved in a major accident which resulted in second and third degree burns to my right arm, shoulder, chest, and face. I am thankful to be alive and because of excellent care I recovered fully. While I still have scars from that injury, I could see my progression with before and after photos of my recovery and was astounded. I thought if I could help just one person, the way that I was helped, that is what I would do with my life. The doctor who helped me was a plastic surgeon. The best part about my job is helping people. I love helping people that are in need of cosmetic surgery or reconstructive surgery. It’s truly a privilege and an amazing profession.

Dr. Stephen E. Small, D.O. is a board certified plastic surgeon specialized in cosmetic, laser and reconstructive plastic surgery. Dr. Small hopes to enrich lives as his was with plastic surgery by enhancing or restoring each persons natural beauty.

Dr. Small earned a Bachelor of Science degree with Distinction and Honors while being in the scholars program at Penn State University. He then went on to earn his medical degree with honors at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM).

What Real Patients Say

  • "Thank you for being such a terrific surgeon and doing such a great job with my surgery... I waited a while before I spent the money on myself... putting it off because of the expense or not being sure how I felt about the surgery, but also because I didn't want to have to justify spending money on myself, it's so vain and pretentious but it's not. You can't put a price on how different I feel now... It's life changing. If people don't thank you enough they should."

    - N.S.
  • "I just wanted to thank you for making my first experience with surgery a comfortable and pleasant one. I can not thank you enough. You are an amazing doctor but an amazing person who cares greatly for his patients... You did an absolutely phenomenal job. I could not have asked for a better surgeon and I am so happy that I chose you."
