Dr. Tiffany McCormack understands the changes that a woman’s body goes through following pregnancy, weight loss, or natural aging, and employs her talents to tailor a surgical and/or non-surgical treatment plan created for each individual. She specializes in cosmetic plastic surgery, including procedures like breast augmentation, liposuction, and tummy tuck. In addition, she is highly experienced in treatments designed to lift, reduce, or reconstruct the breasts; rejuvenate the face, eyes, and neck; and sculpt the body for an improved contour. Dr. McCormack also works extensively with patients who have lost a substantial amount of weight following bariatric surgery. She believes in the artistry of plastic surgery for achieving natural results so that everyone will notice (and nobody will know!). Dr. McCormack stresses patient education and doctor availability. She personally reads every patient e-mail and makes herself available 24/7 for questions that cannot wait.
Education & Training
Dr. Tiffany McCormack completed her plastic surgery training at the prestigious Stanford University Medical Center. She is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Dr. McCormack continues to supplement her knowledge base with courses in cutting edge technologies and techniques. She has had multiple articles published in medical books and journals with topics ranging from basic science research in wound healing to deformities of the pediatric hand. Additionally, Dr. McCormack has presented her work at several national meetings, and maintains an active membership in multiple national plastic surgery societies. During her residency training, Dr. McCormack traveled abroad to offer her expertise in repairing craniofacial abnormalities in an underprivileged patient population. At present, her practice is predominantly cosmetic, though she continues to service all aspects of her plastic surgery.
Dr. McCormack relocated to Reno in 2007 after 10 years in the San Francisco Bay Area. While committed to technical excellence in all aspects of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, her patients often note her personable approach as a reason they have chosen her practice. Her patients take great comfort in knowing that she is intimately involved in all stages of the consultation and peri-operative process. Every detail is addressed and every question is answered. Dr. McCormack is thrilled to have joined the Reno-Tahoe community with her husband and two young children.

What is a Plastic Surgeon?
A plastic surgeon is trained in the specialty of reconstructing facial and body defects as well as the ability to cosmetically enhance well-functioning structures. Plastic surgeons are versed in the principles of function, symmetry, proportion, and aesthetics, employing this knowledge to restore or improve the appearance and internal processes of anatomic systems. While their work commonly consists of anti-aging, body contouring, and augmentation procedures, plastic surgeons also perform operations pertaining to trauma care, burn reconstruction, reconstruction after cancer removal surgery, and the reparation of congenital deformities (birth defects). Plastic surgeons who work primarily in the cosmetic realm typically undergo additional training requirements for face and breast surgery, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and liposuction, among other aesthetic procedures.
Why is Board-Certification Important for Plastic Surgeons?
As with any medical procedure, plastic surgery involves a risk of complication that you should feel confident knowing your surgeon has the experience and intuition to properly address. When your surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons (ABPS), you can feel confident that he or she has completed rigorous education and training beyond the minimum requirements to practice plastic surgery. This certification speaks to their competence in skill, experience, safety, ethical conduct, and dedication to their craft— principles which are essential to entrusting a plastic surgeon with your care.
Why Choose a Female Plastic Surgeon?
The importance of feeling safe and comfortable with your plastic surgeon cannot be overstated. This foundation of trust is invaluable to achieving the results you desire. Dr. McCormack is all too familiar with the various changes the female body undergoes, from the rigors of motherhood to the natural aging process. It is often true that by understanding the aesthetic concerns faced by her patients in such a direct and personal way, Dr. McCormack is able to better interpret and realize their cosmetic goals. Fostering an environment of open communication and patient education, you can feel confident that Dr. McCormack will fully discuss all of the realistic risks, benefits, procedural steps, and recovery details of your treatment plan without pressure or expectation. Dr. McCormack is often praised for her compassionate demeanor and non-intimidating manner of communicating with patients, making it more comfortable to discuss every aspect of the surgical process transparently and without judgement.
