Artist and “Visual Problem Solver”
Prior to becoming a plastic surgeon, Dr. Conway trained and worked as a medical illustrator, earning a Master of Science in Medical Illustration from the Medical College of Georgia. Medical illustrators are often referred to as “visual problem solvers,” helping physicians from all specialties better understand the complex anatomy of the human body through highly detailed anatomical illustrations that are correct in symmetry, scale and proportion.
Dr. Conway’s artistic skill and background in medical illustration inform his approach to cosmetic surgery. He applies his highly developed sense of symmetry, proportion, and contour to help make improvements that may be subtle in terms of changes to the body, yet produce dramatic improvements in a patient’s overall aesthetic. The result is a cosmetic surgery outcome that achieves a patient’s desired enhancements while maintaining a natural, non-operated appearance.
Bringing advanced plastic surgery techniques to western North Carolina
Dr. Conway takes great pride and pleasure in providing the most advanced care and surgical expertise to his patients. His contributions to the medical community in the Asheville region have included microvascular free tissue transplantation as well as minimally invasive endoscopic techniques for facial rejuvenation and other surgeries.
