Following eleven years of postgraduate training in North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, Dr. Lowenstein attained board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He has, in fact, been double-boarded with additional certification from The American Board of Surgery. After spending six years practicing as a Plastic Surgeon in Denver, Colorado, he moved to Santa Barbara.

Dr. Lowenstein’s plastic surgery experience ranges from aesthetic surgeries of the face, breast and body, to microvascular reconstruction of severe cancer deformities, and cosmetic and functional reconstruction of congenital deformities including the separation of conjoined twins. In the national forum, he is an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and has served on the Board of Directors of that organization. His presentations at the annual ASPS National Meeting have been highly regarded and one of the most well-attended sessions.

Dr. Lowenstein is further involved with the American College of Surgeons, as well as local associations of plastic surgery. He feels that giving back to the specialty through sharing knowledge and experience is one of his most significant responsibilities. You should expect your consultation with Dr. Lowenstein to be comfortable, informative, and respectful. The operative experience will follow through with these ideals, and the team approach of his office and operative staff will allow you to be confident that you are getting only the highest level of care.

Dr. Lowenstein is married and has both a daughter and son. Spending time with his family is his priority outside of being a plastic surgeon in Santa Barbara. When he can find the time, Dr. Lowenstein enjoys road cycling and mountain biking, as well as cooking (and eating).

A note from Dr. Lowenstein

My goal — in my personal relationships as well as my professional ones — is to do the right thing. This is the cornerstone of every decision that I make. Without the knowledge that I have done so on any given day, I can’t sleep at night. After over 11 years of postgraduate training including many years of over 115 hour work weeks, my sleep is very important to me.

My reputation in plastic surgery has been built around doing the right thing — from my operative techniques to training young surgeons, to promoting honest discussion in national forums, I work for excellence in every aspect of my practice. I strive for the best possible outcome in each and every patient.

This outcome may be the result of surgery or maybe the result of the decision to abstain from an invasive procedure. In either case, it is vital that as my patient, you are well educated and extremely comfortable in the decision process leading to the achievement of your goals. I consider it an honor to gain your respect, and I look forward to doing the right thing for you.
