Dr. Haritha B. Veeramachaneni is the newest addition to Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, bringing to the practice extensive experience in a wide array of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures.
Long Island, NY – Long Island Plastic Surgical Group (LIPSG) has announced the addition of its newest plastic surgeon, Dr. Haritha B. Veeramachaneni.
Dr. Veeramachaneni, who also goes by Dr. Veera, earned her undergraduate degree from Duke University, graduating Magna Cum Laude. She then went on to attend Vanderbilt University School of Medicine on a full merit scholarship before completing her plastic surgery residency at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Dr. Veera has also completed the prestigious C.M. Kleinert Fellowship in Hand and Microsurgery in Louisville, Kentucky.
For Dr. Veera, an award winning dancer with over 25 years of training and experience in the Indian classical dance, Kuchipudi, the inspiration to become a plastic surgeon began as the result of a seemingly unrelated talent. “As a dancer traveling to other parts of the world, I would often encounter adolescents with unrepaired deformities or adults with severe burn scars. No matter how intelligent or loving these people were, they were shunned by society and regarded as inferior,” began Dr. Veera. “Witnessing this prompted me to seek out ways to help.”
And help she has. Throughout her career, Dr. Veera has dedicated herself to improving how patients engage with the world around them, beginning with extensive volunteer efforts including those with Operation Smile. “Humans interact with the world through their exterior. I am honored that my patients entrust in me their most precious body parts; it gives me great satisfaction to know I am not only returning form and function to them but also improving how they feel on the inside,” she said.
As a mother of two children, Dr. Veera understands the unique challenges of returning form to women after childbirth and offers a wide variety of aesthetic and cosmetic surgeries, which include breast augmentation and lift, abdominoplasty and liposuction.
Dr. Veera is now seeing patients in the Garden City and Babylon offices.
