Dr. Heidi Harrington

We are very happy to welcome Dr. Heidi Harrington, board certified plastic surgeon, to Atlantic Plastic Surgery Center. Dr. Harrington is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Dr. Harrington specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery and also has expertise in facial surgery and body contouring.

Dr. Harrington relocated to the New Hampshire seacoast from Bangor, Maine where she practiced at Bangor Plastic and Hand for three and a half years. She compliments and enriches Atlantic Plastic Surgery Center by bringing a woman’s sensitivity, surgical talent and sound aesthetic judgment to help patients look and feel their best.

Dr. Harrington has deep concern for breast reconstruction after cancer. She founded the Pink Runway Project in Bangor, Maine, which raised money for BRA day and local women with breast cancer and hopes to continue that passion in New Hampshire.

Dr. Heidi Harrington is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and truly cares about her patients. Dr. Harrington is a plastic surgeon who goes out of her way to make you feel at ease. She goes over every step of what will be going on during every step of the procedures. Again, she is a doctor who makes you feel like a friend, not just a patient.
