Jonathan Brower, MD

Dr. Jonathan Brower grew up in Franklin Lakes, NJ and received his B.S. in Biochemistry from Georgetown University, where he graduated cum laude with Department Honors. He attended Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston and earned his M.D. in 2013. He went on to pursue residency training in the Brown University Integrated Plastic Surgery Program, where he served as Administrative Chief Resident in his final year.

Why Pitt?
I sought a fellowship experience that would provide the most complex and challenging body contouring cases to deepen my skill set after residency. Marrying reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, Pitt’s Life After Weight Loss program creates the ideal breeding ground for both refinement and innovation in body contouring after massive weight loss.
