Meet Dr. Saboeiro

Alesia P. Saboeiro, MD: Biography

Dr. Alesia Saboeiro received her undergraduate and Masters degrees in Human Nutrition from the University of Florida. She has always believed in the importance of nutrition in maintaining health and in minimizing the effects of aging. Dr. Saboeiro received her Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Miami School of Medicine and completed her general surgery and plastic surgery training at St. Louis University. Because of her special interest in cosmetic surgery, she completed an aesthetic surgery fellowship in Atlanta, Georgia. Here, she worked closely with several nationally recognized plastic surgeons to learn the most current techniques in both facial and body cosmetic surgery. She then returned to St. Louis where she joined the faculty of St. Louis University, performing cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery procedures and teaching residents and students. In 2004, after seven years, she moved her practice to New York City and joined Dr. Sydney Coleman at TribeCa Plastic Surgery. She is the only surgeon who has had the privilege of doing a fellowship in structural fat grafting with Dr. Sydney Coleman. She now offers fat grafting in addition to a wide variety of cosmetic facial, breast, and body contouring procedures.

In her spare time, she loves to travel and explore other cultures with her husband. She particularly loves Italy and her dream is to become fluent in the language someday. She is also an avid animal lover and has volunteered for various animal organizations.

Dr. Saboeiro is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. She is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
