Dr. Ablavsky

Meet Dr. Ablavsky

Dr. Michael Ablavsky is a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon in San Antonio, Texas, with excellent credentials and extensive training in cosmetic surgery. If you ask his patients, they will tell you they chose him not only for his qualifications but for so much more.

Few plastic surgeons spend as much time building relationships with their patients as Dr. Ablavsky. He takes whatever time is needed to personally discuss your concerns in an honest, educational, and empathetic manner so you feel comfortable and confident about your choices.

A Remarkable Level of Patient Care

At many plastic surgery practices, patients spend more time at an initial consultation with a nurse or patient coordinator than they do with the surgeon. That’s not the case with Dr. Ablavsky. During your consultation, he listens closely as you describe your concerns and goals, then he explains the potential solutions and details of potential procedures. He only recommends procedures that will directly benefit you, and he is careful to ensure that you have realistic expectations about what cosmetic surgery can accomplish.

After the initial consultation, Dr. Ablavsky also meets with you again for a pre-op consultation and checks in with you multiple times on the day of your surgery. He is available 24-7 for patients who have post-op concerns or questions.

Distinguished Education & Training

After earning his undergraduate degree from New York University, Dr. Ablavsky obtained his doctorate of medicine from the State University New York, Downstate Medical Center. He then completed a 5-year general surgery residency there, serving as chief resident during his final year.

Following the completion of his general surgery training, Dr. Ablavsky completed a 3-year fellowship in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Louisville in Kentucky, where he received several academic and clinical achievement awards. He was drawn to plastic surgery because it offers immediate gratification for both the surgeon and the patient, whether it’s restoring a woman’s confidence in her body after having children or creating a more youthful appearance for someone who feels young at heart.

Life in San Antonio

Dr. Ablavsky and his wife, Dr. Najia Dar, a native of San Antonio, moved to San Antonio where he joined Aesthetic Enhancement. When he’s not meeting with patients or performing surgery, Dr. Ablavsky enjoys hiking, swimming, and watching sports.
