Dr. Alisha Paranzino specializes in general reconstructive plastic surgery and aesthetic surgery.

Dr. Paranzino received her bachelor’s degree from the George Washington University where she received a full academic scholarship.

Personal Statement

The relationship that I hold with each patient is the reason that I love coming to work every day. Whether due to cancer diagnosis, traumatic injury, or cosmetic dissatisfaction, it is a privilege to help patients through their plastic surgery journey to a place of restored form and function. By developing an individualized surgical plan together, I hope that every patient will feel comfortable and empowered. Through attention to detail and meticulous technique, I aim to prioritize the goals and desires of each patient in order to provide excellent results.
