    About Me

    Andrew Louis Da Lio, MD, after completing his microsurgery fellowship at UCLA, was appointed Assistant Professor in 1997. His main administrative and teaching responsibilities are to oversee the medical student program within the Division and to assist with the Plastic Surgery residents' educational programs.

    Dr. Da Lio's main areas of clinical expertise are in microsurgery, breast reconstruction, and lower extremity trauma. His research focuses on microsurgery, objective assessment of abdominal wall function after free TRAM flap breast reconstruction, the use of nuclear medicine imaging (FDG-PET scanning) in differentiating benign and malignant lesions after breast reconstruction, and the role of decision analysis in breast reconstruction surgery. Specific topics of interest in clinical decision-making include the role of autologous blood donation in free flap breast reconstructive surgery, reconstruction in locally advanced and metastatic breast cancer, and the use of anti-thrombotic agents in free flap surgery. His basic science research focuses on the effects of anabolic steroids in wound healing.

    Dr. Da Lio also has a great interest and extensive experience in facial aesthetic surgery and with cosmetic injectables such as Botox, Radiesse, Restylane and Sculptra. He also performs body contouring procedures and elective breast surgery with excellent results.
