" THE INLAND EMPIRE'S PREMIER BREAST SURGEON "
Dr. Andreasen has been in the private practice of plastic surgery in the Inland Empire area since 2001. Since that time, his practice has developed into one of the leading plastic surgery practices in Southern California. His practice remains committed to providing personalized attention and maintaining the highest quality of service.
Originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, Dr. Troy J. Andreasen grew up interested in plastic surgery. As a successful Golden Glove boxer, he became acquainted with a plastic surgeon while in that sport. Through this association, his interest in the broad field blossomed and he went on to immerse himself in its study for the next several years.
Following two years of religious missionary service, Dr. Andreasen completed medical school at the University of Utah. While there, he developed advanced microsurgical skills under the direction of the renowned hand surgeon, Graham Lister. His efforts in microsurgical research helped define the effects of trauma on microcirculation. Dr. Andreasen was awarded the highest achievement award from his alma mater and graduated at the top of his medical school class.
Dr. Andreasen was then chosen as one of the first medical school graduates in the United States to train in an integrated General Surgery/Plastic Surgery program that emphasized cosmetic surgery. At Loma Linda University, Dr. Andreasen excelled in all facets of his training and established himself as one of their premier plastic surgical trainees. His specific interests included cosmetic surgery of the breast, body and face and reconstructive surgery of the breast.
Dr. Andreasen has been actively involved in missionary service since he was 19 years old. While at Loma Linda, he captained the Loma Linda Good Samaritan Plastic Surgery efforts in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Twice yearly, this team offered reconstructive surgery services to impoverished children who would otherwise have no access to these procedures. Dr. Andreasen’s training in cleft lip and palate repair as well as his experience in burn surgery are valuable components of the missionary endeavor.
Dr. Andreasen’s pursuit of excellence in Plastic Surgery continues now in his private practice. With personalized service and care, he treats every patient individually and provides complete surgical care from the initial consultation through the recovery. Emphasizing safety, Dr. Andreasen performs his cosmetic and reconstructive procedures at several hospitals and surgery centers throughout Riverside and the Inland Empire.
