Her Personal Story
Dr. Constance Barone is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is formally fellowship-trained in Reconstructive Surgery. She moved to Texas and opened her private practice in San Antonio so that her three children could be raised with an active lifestyle, home-grown values and diversity embodied by San Antonio and its culture.
Dr. Barone hails from a big Italian family, and growing up, her mother taught her how to sew. From a young age, Dr. Barone was technically gifted with her hands, and could stitch a thread… which would become invaluable in her medical training. As a child, Dr. Barone always dreamed of becoming a doctor. When she shared her dream with her father, he encouragingly said, “You get the grades, and I’ll get the money.” That was the start of a life-long career in medicine.
So, Why Cosmetic Surgery?
Dr. Barone’s love of Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery began when she was performing facial reconstructions on children, at Philadelphia’s St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, where she headed the burn center and pediatric program. She wanted her patients to feel accepted, and normal, despite any physical abnormalities they had. For accident victims, she wanted to restore their natural appearance, so they didn’t have to live with the scars. When working on patients, she was constantly asking herself, “How can we do this, and get a better result?” What began in a surgery center in Philadelphia lead to a lifelong pursuit of helping people achieve their aesthetic and health goals, so they could have improved self-confidence and well-being.
