Dr. Lober's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lober "Before entering medicine, I worked for several years as a Chemical Engineer, which provided a great background for my medical career. I subsequently became a Plastic Surgeon and have been in practice in Athens, Georgia for over twenty five years. Within the realm of medicine, I have an interest in weight loss and weight control, and I am the author of the upcoming book Diet & Nutrition for Medical Students. My outside interests include woodworking and sculpting in metal and stone. I also have a keen interest in environmental issues, and I am intimately involved in the non-profit organization Clean Earth Oysters, which is working to increase oyster populations along the Georgia coast to help clean up our coastal waters. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lober "We think of ourselves as a 'Holistic' Plastic Surgery Practice, treating the body as a whole, and not just it's visible exterior.  We are committed to providing not only excellent surgical care, but also excellent personal care as well.  I try to be completely honest with all of my patients, and treat them just as I would treat my own family."

After researching several plastic surgeons in the Athens area, I selected Dr. Lober for my breast augmentation Surgery. He was professional kind and sized my implants to my body frame perfectly. Needless to say I’m thrilled as is my boyfriend! I highly recommend Stephen Lober Plastic Surgery!
