Double Board Certified Plastic Surgeon - Fort Worth, TX
Dr. McLaughlin attended medical school at East Tennessee State University where she was elected a member of Alpha Omega Alpha medical honorary. She completed a general surgery residency at the Medical College of Georgia. During that time, she completed an elective year of research studying craniofacial growth and development. Upon presenting her research nationwide, she was awarded the Hardesty award by the Plastic Surgery Research Council.
She remained at the Medical College of Georgia to complete a plastic surgery residency. Her training then continued in Dallas, Texas, where she completed a craniofacial surgery fellowship at Medical City Dallas Hospital. The scope of this training was predominantly pediatric reconstructive surgery which offered a more extensive pediatric plastic surgery experience than general plastic surgery training. Upon completing her fellowship, she decided to stay in Texas and establish a general plastic surgery practice — the best decision she ever made.
