Dr. Renucci began his surgical training at Columbia University and completed his plastic surgery residency at the University of Chicago. While in Chicago, he received many distinguished awards for his academic achievements. Following residency, Dr. Renucci spent two additional years of highly sub-specialized training in both reconstructive as well as cosmetic surgery. He completed a year of microsurgery training at the University of Chicago. Then his interest in cosmetic surgery then led him to a renowned training position at the Cleveland Clinic in South Florida.

Dr. Renucci’s in-depth surgical and clinical training coupled with his broad clinical experience has helped him focus on cosmetic plastic surgery. His areas of specialty include aesthetic breast surgery, body contouring, and facial cosmetic surgery. Dr. Renucci has been at the forefront of innovation in the field of body contouring including lower body lifts, auto augmentation of the buttock, as well as Brazilian Butt Lifts.

He has received numerous awards in the field of plastic surgery and has lectured internationally. He has been invited to provide expert plastic surgery insight for radio, television and magazines. Dr. Renucci remains active in clinical research and has authored journal articles and textbook chapters.
