Barry Press, M.D., F.A.C.S., is a unique, patient-focused cosmetic plastic surgeon. His goal is to provide patients with safe, natural, effective plastic surgical procedures. He wants each patient to clearly and thoroughly understand the medical procedure that will best fit his or her desired outcome. In almost all cases, the patient has more than one option. In addition to evaluation and recommendation, Dr. Press provides his patients with information and guidance so they can make an informed decision about their best options. His desire to be a plastic surgeon occurred during his general surgery residency at the University of Minnesota. He developed an interest in the possibility of transplanting composite tissues for reconstruction of defects left by injuries or tumors. Using the then-revolutionary anti-rejection agent Cyclosporine-A, he spent two years in laboratory research. He applied for a residency position at New York University's world-famous Institute for Reconstructive Plastic Surgery and, after completing training in general surgery, began his plastic surgery training there in 1985. In 1987, he joined the full-time faculty in the Division of Plastic Surgery at Stanford University. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 1994. He entered private practice in 1995. In addition to his private practice, he remains an active member of the Stanford Adjunct Clinical Faculty and was promoted to Adjunct Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery in 2006.
