Local cosmetic surgeon attends preceptorship program

Sept. 23, 2016 |

LONGMEADOW – Aesthetic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, P.C., a community-centered cosmetic surgery and non-invasive practice serving western Massachusetts and northern Connecticut, recently announced Dr. Glen Brooks participated in prestigious preceptorship program hosted by Dr. Charles Randquist, M.D., a board-certified plastic surgeon with 20 years’ experience.

For the last decade, Randquist has been a speaker all around the world on various cosmetic procedures, while his main focus has been on primary, secondary and reconstructive breast surgery. The preceptorship was held in Sweden, and gathered a small group of the most highly skilled physicians in the United States.

“I felt like this was a great opportunity to continue my education and ensure a world-class experience and results for my patients,” Brooks said. “Dr. Randquist is renowned for his knowledge, emphasizing a natural appearance with less short- and long-term complications, which is always a focus at my practice.”

Voted “Best Place for Cosmetic Surgery in the Valley” for the past four out of five years,  Brooks’ practice is highly regarded for a variety of procedures, including breast augmentation and reconstruction.

“Learning alongside Dr. Randquist was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, including live surgery and follow-ups as well as techniques and practice management,” Brooks said. “What’s really important about this program is that Dr. Randquist declines any financial compensation and holds no financial interest in any of the medical companies whose products or devices he talks about. The best practices and higher-level understanding I have about new products and devices are credible, authentic and valuable.”

Randquist received his degree at Karolinska Institute and Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm and Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg, sub-specializing in microsurgery. He was trained in aesthetic plastic surgery in Sweden and Germany. He is a member of the Swedish Medical Association, the Swedish Society of Medicine, the Swedish Association of Plastic Surgeons and the Swedish Association for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Dr. Randquist is also a certified plastic surgeon in Spain and Germany. Randquist is currently co-chairman of the Allergan Asia Council on Breast Aesthetics (AACE).
