Dr. Wei attended medical school at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and then completed a comprehensive plastic surgery residency at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. As a resident she took a special interest in cancer reconstruction as well as cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Wei went on to completed two fellowships: one in reconstructive Microsurgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City and the second in aesthetic surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

Dr. Wei looks forward to offering patients in southern Southeast Alaska a broad range of plastic surgery services including: cosmetic surgery of the face and body such as breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, arm/thigh lift, facelift, liposuction and more; skin cancer/Mohs reconstruction; removal of moles, lumps and bumps; scar revision; wound reconstruction; non- surgical cosmetic procedures such as Botox and fillers.

Most simple and moderately-complex reconstructive procedures will be performed at PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center in Ketchikan. Complex procedures and high-risk patients will be cared for in Seattle.

Dr. Wei begins seeing patients in Ketchikan February 27 and 28 and patients can ask their primary care doctor for a referral or they may call her office directly at 206-292-6200 to schedule an appointment.
