Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Gary Brooks

Medical Director at The Medspa

The most important component in attaining high-quality plastic surgery results for residents of Hartford and Springfield is the cosmetic plastic surgeon they choose.

Dr. Glen Brooks has been practicing since 1992 and is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He is Harvard trained and locally based. His Massachusetts practice was named “Best Place for Cosmetic Surgery” in the Valley Advocate Readers’ Poll for 2009-2018.

The ideal candidate for cosmetic surgery recognizes specific aspects of his or her appearance that can be improved. This may give added confidence in the workplace, help him or her look as youthful as they feel, or give a psychological boost.
