Specialties and Skills
Dr. Nawada's extensive background in the plastic surgery industry has allowed him to develop his expertise in a number of surgical and non-surgical techniques. Dr. Nawada is known for his ability to "tweak" procedures to match the needs of his patients, as no two patients have the same needs. He also uses nonsurgical techniques and treatments which offer great results for patients who may not want surgery or who may not be a good candidate for a surgical procedure.
Dr. Nawada also specializes in other types of nonsurgical treatments, that include injectables, such as BOTOX®, Dysport®, or Xeomin®, which are all muscle relaxing neuro-modulators. He is an expert injector with regard to dermal fillers such as Juvéderm®XC, and Juvederm®XC+, Radiesse®, or Voluma ®. Restylane®, Restylane® SILK, and Restylane®LYFT, Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne.
With more than 30 years in the field, Dr. Nawada has seen a lot of cosmetic and surgical trends come and go, and he has a firm handle on the most reliable techniques and timeless results that patients demand. Over the years, Dr. Nawada has carefully honed his skills in a variety of plastic surgical techniques, for face, breast, and body procedures. He is continually learning new and/or improved techniques as he regularly attends symposiums and scientific meetings with his colleagues, in membership with them at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), where they discuss new findings, hot topics, what works and what doesn't, or what works better, and they teach and they learn from each other. Suffice it to say, there is nothing “old school” about Dr. Nawada’s approach to plastic surgery.
Education and Training
Following his Medical School Internship at Lutheran Hospital in Cleveland, OH, Dr. Nawada began his Residency in General Surgery, in a 3-year program at St. Vincent Hospital, in Erie, Pennsylvania, but he ended up preferring being in a 4-year program, and so transferred to one at Saginaw Affiliated Hospitals in Saginaw, Michigan where he completed his 4-year General Surgery Residency.
