Bruce E. Genter, M.D., F.A.C.S. is a native Philadelphian. Born, raised and educated in Pennsylvania, Dr. Genter completed his General Surgery training in New York and his Plastic Surgery residency at Yale University Medical Center. Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, he returned to his home state in 1984 and began his practice in a university setting.
Dr. Genter subsequently established the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center in 1988 where he remains the solo practitioner focusing on cosmetic surgery for both men and women. His leadership roles in specialty societies, ongoing faculty positions, and busy private practice have earned him an outstanding reputation among patients, peers, colleagues and medical students.
Dr. Genter insists the success he has enjoyed over the years is a product of building his practice slowly and well. "I live by what I tell my students: Always put the emphasis on the patient, keep your ego in check and maintain scrupulous ethics. You may come from a great medical program, but you have to build trust gradually. And trust is earned."
