Dr. Lawrence N. Gray

A Leading Plastic Surgeon in New England

Dr. Lawrence N. Gray has earned a great deal of respect in both his local medical community and the national plastic surgical community through his many publications, technical skill and personal demeanor. He has a large following of satisfied patients from across New Hampshire, the United States and a number of foreign countries, who have sought him out for breast augmentation and scarless breast reduction.

In 2004, as part of the Sientra Clinical study, Dr. Gray received the significant honor of being only one of 15 plastic surgeons in the United States selected to offer silicone breast implants for primary augmentation. Now that silicone breast implants have been fully approved for use by the FDA, Dr. Gray is still one of the leading plastic surgeons in New England, performing hundreds annually. He was also one of the first plastic surgeons to report internationally on the use of the Axis 3D imager for use helping patients see how specific breast implants sizes and shapes will look on their body.

Staying on the Forefront

Dr. Gray is committed to staying on the forefront of plastic surgery. He spends about four weeks per year attending conferences and studying the latest developments in plastic surgery with many of the world’s most respected plastic surgeons. Dr. Gray is nationally recognized for his method of breast reduction using liposuction and is frequently requested as a speaker at national professional meetings.

Dr. Gray pays meticulous attention to remaining current with research and studies in professional journals and plastic surgical text books on the procedures in highest demand as well as the smaller procedures, such as dermal fillers, BOTOX Cosmetic injections and Fraxel Laser treatment.

Dr. Gray’s work in Developing Countries

It takes heart to be an outstanding plastic surgeon. The extent of Dr. Gray’s work as a plastic surgeon is not limited to New Hampshire, nor even to the United States. He has gone on volunteer trips through Interplast, Rotaplast (part of Rotary International) and Medical Missions for Children, providing burn repair and correction of cleft lip and palate disorders to children in developing countries.

Dr. Gray has made trips to Argentina, Vietnam, Chile, Venezuela and Ecuador to provide free cleft lip and palate repair to impoverished children who would otherwise go without treatment. On his most recent trip to Guayaquil, Ecuador, Dr. Gray said, “My gratification comes from seeing the happiness on the mothers’ face when her child looks normal.”
