Dr. Jean Loftus

Dr. Loftus is a female plastic surgeon who has appeared on The View, The Today Show, MSNBC, CNN, and Later Today (discussing both liposuction and breast augmentation) to discuss plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery procedures. She is considered a vocal advocate of patient safety, satisfaction, and education in plastic surgery.

Dr. Loftus’ highly acclaimed book, “The Smart Woman’s Guide to Plastic Surgery”, has become extremely popular since it’s release of the 1st edition in January, 2000. Written by a female plastic surgeon for women, it contains essential information on liposuction, breast augmentation, and other cosmetic surgery procedures.

Training, Education, Memberships, and Background

Long before Dr. Loftus became a plastic surgeon, she undertook years of education, which began at the University of Wisconsin in 1981. Her training led her to the University of California-Davis and to the University of Cincinnati. But, before considering her 14 years of college, medical school, and residency complete, Dr. Loftus pursued a cosmetic surgery fellowship in Miami, Florida in 1995.

“I chose plastic surgery because, through it, plastic surgeons can change people in ways they never imagined possible. A change in appearance can transform someone’s whole outlook on life. Being a part of this metamorphosis is the most important and pleasurable part of my work.”

A Reputation Among the National Media

Dr. Loftus is considered an authority by the media, having appeared on numerous talk shows and news shows. The media recognize her as being an ethical, compassionate, and balanced plastic surgeon, maintaining patient safety and education as her top priorities. They know that when they ask Dr. Loftus questions, they will get objective, up-to-date, state-of-the-art information on plastic surgery.

“Even though I am considered an expert by the media, I will never consider my knowledge complete. This is because medicine changes rapidly. To keep up with these advances, I pursue continuing medical education aggressively. That’s also why professional memberships are so important. They give me an opportunity to meet with other plastic surgeons, evaluate new techniques, and share ideas with other plastic surgeons on how to get the best results for my patients with the least risk and fastest recovery.”

Dr. Loftus is an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, which only admits plastic surgeons who are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. She is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, for which she has been granted the privilege to use the initials F.A.C.S. after her name.

Dr. Loftus 
has published several articles in peer-reviewed medical journals. Dr. Loftus also recognized the need for a truly honest source of information about cosmetic surgery for patients. The fruit of her efforts, The Smart Woman’s Guide to Plastic Surgery, is now a popular book in the country on cosmetic surgery. This book has helped thousands of women across the country and around the world.

Current Practice

Dr. Loftus has been in the practice of cosmetic plastic surgery in and around Cincinnati, OH since 1995. Because she is in a solo practice, you can be sure that you will see Dr. Loftus herself each time you come to the office, rather than a partner or associate. Dr. Loftus’ private state-of-the-art operating room is fully accredited by AAAASF (The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgey Facilities), which imposes stringent requirements. This affords patients a great combination of safety, comfort, and privacy when seeking plastic surgery. Dr. Loftus’ all-woman staff make patient comfort and safety their number one concern.
