Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Residency Program

One of the hallmarks of the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group is its decades-long commitment to furthering the science and art of plastic surgery. Only the most skilled, experienced, and innovative plastic surgeons make up our team of doctors, and each is dedicated to passing their knowledge on to new generations of surgeons who will be the next leaders in the field.

In 1954, the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group established its own plastic surgery residency program. In 1989, Dr. Roger L. Simpson became the Director of the Residency Training Program and since its inception, the LIPSG Residency Program has trained more than 125 residents and has seen many of them grow into some of the most respected and skilled plastic surgeons in the nation. Graduates from our residency program have gone on to successful careers in both private practice and academia, and have become some of the leading innovators in the fields of plastic and reconstructive surgery.


Residents learn all aspects of establishing a reconstructive and cosmetic practice from three institutions that have respected histories as committed educators of skilled plastic surgeons.
