Dr. Douglas J. Mackenzie is a board certified plastic surgeon in Santa Barbara, CA. In this clip, you can learn more about Dr. Mackenzie’s educational background and why he enjoys working in the field of plastic surgery.
I graduated medical school from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in 1989 and after that I completed a general surgery residency at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles. Following that training, I did plastic surgery training in New York and then I did a hand surgery fellowship for a year in Portland at Oregon Health Sciences University and then moved in 1997 here to Santa Barbara and had a solo private practice in plastic surgery since then. I have always enjoyed plastic surgery even as a medical student and I enjoyed the fact that plastic does not focus on one area of the body but there is a variety and so it is very technique dependent which suited my personality and perhaps my background as an engineer. I am board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, American Board of Surgery, and I am a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. I am a member of the American Society for Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
