Geisinger surgeon named director of
Center for Aesthetic and Cosmetic Surgery
DANVILLE - Dr. Alexander P. Moya has been named director of the Center for Aesthetics and Cosmetic Surgery at Geisinger Medical Center. He also will continue in his role as director of GMC's Weight Loss Body Contouring Program.
Moya came to GMC in 2002. A 1995 graduate of Georgetown University School of Medicine, Washington, D.C., he completed a general surgery residency in 2000 at Mount Sinai Medical Center of Greater Miami, Miami Beach, Fla. He completed fellowship training in plastic surgery at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, in 2002.
While at GMC, Moya has transformed his practice into one solely dedicated to the cosmetic patient, specializing in facial rejuvenation and all aspects of aesthetic surgery, which includes face, breast, body and weight loss body contouring. He has developed an innovative surgical technique for trunk contouring for weight loss patients, known as corset trunkplasty. The procedure comprehensively reshapes the abdomen and waistline, while using advanced technology to provide improved surgical outcomes.
Moya travels nationally to present the details of the procedure and also instructs a live surgical course at GMC several times per year for interested board certified plastic surgeons.
