PS Dr. Silverman Answers Your Question On Male Procedures

Postby Make_Me_Heal_Team » Tue Feb 06, 2007 6:50 pm

Hello everyone,

We are excited to announce that plastic surgeon Dr. Rick Silverman who specializes in male plastic surgery procedures has joined Make Me Heal to answer questions from men about plastic surgery on these areas. In addition of being a board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Silverman is a professional body builder who has been featured in top fitness magazines and can provide some perspectives on these matters. Please write concise plastic surgery questions and Dr. Silverman will answer as many of them as he can in his free time.

NOTE: As Dr. Silverman is away on a seminar, he will begin answering your questions at the end of February. In the mean time you can prepare your questions but please bear in mind that he will be able to reply to them most likely during the lat week of February or the first week of March.

Please post your questions in new topics in this forum and not in this locked topic.


Dr. Silverman received his A.B. in German from Dartmouth College in 1981 and his M.D. from the Pennsylvania State University in 1985. He completed training in General Surgery at the Hershey Medical Center of the Pennsylvania State University and at the Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine, finishing in 1990. He then trained in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester, Massachusetts, completing his program in 1992, followed by a traveling fellowship in Microvascular Surgery at the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taipei, Taiwan, and at the Royal Melbourne Hospital in Melbourne, Australia. He has been on staff at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center since July, 1993. He obtained certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery in November, 1995. His practice was relocated to the St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Brighton, Massachusetts, with offices in Newton and Brighton in September, 2000. In his new practice, he joins Dr. George Volpe, with whom he trained at U Mass.

Dr. Silverman's practice covers the broad range of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, with some focus on diseases of the breast in both men and women and body contouring. He remains affiliated with the Universityof Massachusetts Medical Center as an Assistant Professor of Surgery. His focus in aesthetic surgery is in fitness-oriented individuals and bodybuilders, where he aims to provide surgical care with a minimal interruption in their training program. He has written several articles on the treatment of gynecomastia in bodybuilders, published in both peer reviewed journals as well as in popular literature, including Muscle & Fitness magazine (for which he also serves on the Medical Advisory Board) and Natural Bodybuilding and Fitness magazine. As a result of his exposure to the complications of drug use in athletes, Dr. Silverman has developed a program and is available to speak with students and other groups regarding steroids and other drug use in sports.

In addition to his clinical responsibilities, Dr. Silverman is active in leading groups of surgeons and medical personnel to Ecuador to provide surgical care to the underserved in this developing country, under the auspices of C.H.A.N.G.E, based in Worcester, and FUNDASE, based in Ecuador. The majority of care has focused on repair of congenital anomalies of the face and hand, especially cleft lip and palate, along with secondary burn reconstruction and treatment of scars.

Away from work, Dr. Silverman is an athlete, involved in rowing, sailing, and competitive bodybuilding, holding several titles, including the 2000 INBF Northeast Classic heavyweight winner and the 2000 Superbody Masters winner. Most recently, he finished 4th at the WNBF Pro Masters Cup and 3rd at the WNBF Mr. Universe, his first “professional” placing in the top three. He has written and performed music and poetry, including an original “drug-free” rap as background to his posing routine in competition. He is currently co-secretary of the Dartmouth Class of 1981 and a member of the Dartmouth Alumni Council.
