Dr. Carraway has been teaching and practicing for 35 years in the medical school and has been involved as Director and Chairman of residency training programs and fellowship programs in plastic surgery.

He also performs cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery in addition to liposuction and body contouring. He has given hundreds of presentations, written many articles for the lay and scientific literature, and has devoted himself to teaching his colleagues nationally and internationally in techniques which will help their patients age better with or without plastic surgery. His stated goal is to share all of the information on age management, nutrition, supplements, and other aspects of age management and wellness to as many professionals as he can reach.
