Dr. Grady Core, MD
Originally from Arkansas I completed surgery training in New York and became board certified in general surgery first , then later went back and trained in plastic surgery at the Mayo Clinic. I came to Birmingham and did an aesthetic surgery fellowship at UAB and then became the Chief of Plastic Surgery at the Ochsner Clinic in New Orleans. I moved back to Birmingham in 1996 to live and raise a family here and have been in private practice since then.

Dr. Grady Core is the consummate professional. He is not the average plastic surgeon, going above and beyond to provide impeccable care. His office staff is warm and accommodating. Dr. Core is innovative in procedures that take years off a person all the while looking natural, rejuvenated and rested. He has the eye, the touch and the skill.

I left a plastic surgeon in Montgomery because I was not satisfied. It was a blessing to find Dr. Core. The staff is so courteous and friendly. I have had two surgeries with Dr. Core and have been very pleased. I recommended a family member when she was looking for a plastic surgeon. She too is happy with his work. It is a wonderful experience to see a caring doctor. I now have a better outlook on life. I wish I had started out with Dr. Core for my original surgeries. He is GREAT!

He absolutely cares for his patients. He took on a very complicated case to fix someone else's work and gave a very special person a chance at a normal life again after two failed surgeries. He guided us months ahead and like he said, he's the pilot and we were basically along for the ride. We did everything he asked and we got exactly what we had hoped for. We are so blessed to have found him and would 100% recommend him and his staff to anyone.
in Fosters |
Dr. Core and his staff are caring and compassionate and very easy to work with. Office appointments are generous in time spent with Dr. Core and his staff. Thorough explanation of procedures are always provided in an understanding fashion.
