Plastic Surgery Career
Dr. Elliott has been practicing plastic and reconstructive surgery since 1983, and during this time he has specialized in all areas of cosmetic surgery, including procedures of the face, breasts, body, and extremities. He has held regional and national offices in numerous plastic surgery organizations and frequently lectured and operated at national and international meetings and locations. He has developed a procedure for breast reconstruction using a scarless latissimus (no scar on the back) flap as well as a short-scar facelift procedure that only requires local anesthesia.
New Trends in Plastic Surgery
Dr. Elliott has continued to be an innovator in plastic and reconstructive surgery procedures throughout his impressive career. As breast-implant materials, techniques, textures, and trends have evolved throughout the years, he has remained at the forefront of technical improvement. The addition of endoscopic procedures during the 1990s led not only to shorter scars, but also improvements in techniques for the browlift and facelift.

While cosmetic surgery is used to improve the appearance of the face, breasts, and body, reconstructive surgery is used to restore the function and appearance of facial and body features compromised by congenital defects, physical trauma, or the treatment of long-term illnesses like chemotherapy and radiation. Dr. Elliott is experienced in various types of reconstructive surgery, but he specializes in reconstructive surgery of the breasts. Dr. Elliott continues to research and advance surgical reconstruction of the breast, developing and refining breast reconstruction procedures like the scarless latissimus flap, DIEP flap, and TRAM flap methods.
Dr. Elliott has remained committed to breast reconstruction after mastectomy since the first days of his career. For over 35 years, Dr. Elliot has performed both immediate and delayed breast reconstruction in addition to cosmetic surgeries of the face, breasts, and body at his Atlanta, GA practice. Specifically, Dr. Elliot has extensive experience with the free TRAM flap and pedicled TRAM flap procedures, alternatively employing the use of breast implants and/or tissue expanders for patients who cannot do not desire a TRAM flap procedure. He has written many articles on this subject and performed this procedure live in a number of centers around the world.
Dr. Elliott has also been involved in the development of new techniques, including the scarless latissimus flap, which utilizes muscle from the back without producing a scar. He has also developed a procedure for patients who have had breast augmentation but were subsequently diagnosed with breast cancer.
