Dr. Hurwitz is an internationally recognized plastic surgeon with a distinguished record of contributions to his field and community. His groundbreaking approach to post-operative care, which includes a dedicated team of aesthetic professionals to reduce swelling and speed up the healing process, was the first of its kind in Pittsburgh. Dr. Hurwitz has also earned a reputation as a highly sought-after educator, having instructed students from all over the globe. Through his unwavering dedication to his craft and passion for sharing his knowledge, Dr. Hurwitz has become a renowned practitioner, innovator, and mentor in plastic surgery.
Founded in 1999, the Hurwitz Center for Plastic Surgery—now The Pittsburgh Center for Plastic Surgery is an exquisitely designed penthouse facility that houses a state-of-the-art plastic surgery clinic, ambulatory operating room, and rejuvenation medical spa within 7,000 square feet in the Forbes Allies Center, 3109 Forbes Avenue, Oakland, Pittsburgh.

Breast Augmentation can enhance the size and shape of breasts and achieve a fuller and more balanced bust line. Subfascial breast augmentation, composite breast augmentation (fat grafting at the same time), auto-augmentation breast augmentation (fat-only), and the use of breast mesh and supportive mesh for secondary and tertiary revisions of breast augmentation are all included in this category. Discover why The Pittsburgh Center is your ideal solution for breast augmentation.
Own your body and claim your “power mom” status with a Mommy Makeover. Our board-certified surgeons at The Pittsburgh Center for Plastic Surgery have won numerous awards for their skillful procedures and the individualized attention they give to each of their patients. In a Mommy Makeover, you'll undergo a series of procedures chosen just for you. Each plan is tailor-made to meet your needs and desired outcomes from surgery.
Tummy tucks, or abdominoplasty, are performed to restore a flat, toned stomach. Your surgeon can advise you on the best course of action for body contouring based on your goals and your anatomy. In many patients, your doctor will perform both abdominoplasty and VASERlipo®, a gentle ultrasound-based method of liposuction that yields excellent results.
"Lipo 360" refers to an all-encompassing liposuction operation used to sculpt and define the abdominal area from every angle. The lower and middle back, flanks, and abdominals are potential targets. We have created various liposuction procedures to help tighten, tone, and shape your body. The versatility to achieve desired outcomes sets this process apart from other lipo techniques.
Facelift procedures at the Pittsburgh Center for Plastic Surgery can be customized to your preferences and needs. These procedures aim to enhance your appearance by sculpting your face, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, eliminating excess fat, and restoring fat where it is lacking. A facelift can permanently eliminate sagging skin around the face, neck, and jowls. A facelift can restore a more youthful and vibrant appearance with minimal scarring.
Botox and injectables are two popular forms of cosmetic treatments used to reduce the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines. In addition to the gold-standard Botox Cosmetic, The Pittsburgh Center is pleased to offer the Juvederm and Restylane collections. In addition, Sculptra is also used by our aesthetic specialists for the correction of deep nasolabial folds and other wrinkles.
