The extensive patient load at Charity allowed Dr. Treece to publish research on the ground breaking and innovative technique for Breast Reconstruction: The DIEP Flap. After additional training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Medical College of South Carolina in Charleston, she was in private practice for three years in Atlanta. Ultimately, her love of New Orleans and all it compasses: the dining, the architecture, the history and the mix of the arts, interesting people and cultures; called her “home”.
In New Orleans she concentrates her private practice to Breast Cancer Detection and Aesthetic Surgery. She is a board certified surgeon and is a member of multiple societies including the American Board of Surgery, American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, American Society of Breast Surgeons, Louisiana State Medical Society, and the Orleans and Jefferson Parish Medical Societies, to name a few. On staff at numerous area hospitals, she retains patients as far as Australia and Malaysia, and still finds time to contribute to the training of medical students.
“Being a surgeon and a woman allows me a unique personal approach to my patients. I think it helps me understand what patients want because I usually have the same issues and want the same changes! My practice philosophy has always been to take the ‘plastic’ out of Plastic Surgery. There are constantly new developments in Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery that make my work exciting and ever-changing. Still, it was after attending my very first plastic surgery convention that I learned sometimes less is more!”
Dr. Treece loves to travel and design. She continues to sculpt and paint as displayed in her office and local galleries, although after twenty some years as a surgeon, her “artistry” is beautifully displayed on many of the locals. Whether you are concerned about a breast mass or wrinkles, or need a major mommy makeover, Dr. Treece and her staff are committed to addressing your options and getting results with your safety and recovery foremost.
