Dr. Andrew Friedman provides the highest quality, compassionate plastic surgery care.
Dr. Andrew Friedman is an experienced plastic surgeon with nearly 30 years of practice in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. Dr. Friedman enjoys practicing the full scope of plastic surgery and specializes in all body procedures, including cosmetic and reconstructive breast, abdominal surgery, liposuction, and facial rejuvenation. Throughout his career, he’s been driven by a singular motivation: achieving high-quality outcomes for his patients.
He began his career at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, teaching residents while treating complex injuries, and establishing his expertise in cosmetic, reconstructive, and hand surgery. He also became a proud member of the U.S. Army, joining the reserves while still a resident, before pursuing an active-duty career. His military service saw him treat the traumatic wounds that service members suffered in combat, as well as the reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery needs of soldiers, their families, and those retired from the service. He served three tours as a combat surgeon and leader in Iraq, and Afghanistan, as well as a two-year deployment to South Korea as the senior physician for all Army and US service members stationed in the country.
His proudest role is that of a husband to Kay and father of four boys and four girls. He enjoys staying physically active and has gone on multiple cross-country bike rides.
