Dr. Kelsey McClure Double-Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

Getting a breast cancer diagnosis can be one of the most challenging experiences of a patient’s life. Dr. McClure is dedicated to helping women rebuilt their physical and emotional well being though breast reconstruction. She knows that every patient’s journey is different, and shared decision making is necessary to tailor a comprehensive aesthetic and reconstructive plan.

After completing general surgery training, here in Phoenix, Dr. McClure went on to complete her plastic surgery training at the University of California, San Francisco. To further her ability to perform complex reconstructive surgery she then completed a microsurgery fellowship at the Midwest Microsurgical Institute of the University of Kansas. After she completed training, Dr. McClure spent her first two years working at the Mayo Clinic focusing on breast reconstruction, before joining Southwest Breast and Aesthetics.

Her areas of expertise include autologous reconstruction of the breast, breast reconstruction revision, and cosmetic procedures for facial and body rejuvenation.
