Dr. Trey Aquadro | Auburn, AL
Dr. Ralph Aquadro III, Trey, is a Diplomat of The American Board of Plastic Surgery. He specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. He received his plastic surgery training at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City. As a part of the six year integrated plastic surgery program, Dr. Aquadro was trained in all facets of plastic surgery including burn reconstruction, cleft and craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, breast reconstruction and cosmetic surgery.
Dr. Aquadro began his journey to become a plastic surgeon in Florence, AL where he graduated salutatorian from Coffee High School. Attending Rhodes College in Memphis, TN, he was a member of the golf team and graduated cum laude with a major in Biology and minor in Business. While an undergraduate, Dr. Aquadro was elected to multiple honor societies including the nation’s oldest academic honor society, Phi Beta Kappa.
Dr. Aquadro returned to Alabama for his medical training at the University of South Alabama. He was selected to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society as a junior medical student. He also served as senior class vice president and tutored freshmen medical students. This was where he developed his love for plastic and reconstructive surgery.
After graduating medical school, Dr. Aquadro obtained one of the highly competitive integrated plastic surgery positions at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Plastic surgery is both an art and a science, and, thus, why the training is among the longest of any specialty. In his initial years of training he was exposed to Trauma Surgery, Transplant Surgery, Critical Care, Pediatric Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Laparoscopic Surgery, Surgical Oncology, Anesthesia and acute burn care. The latter years focused on facial reconstruction, hand surgery, lower extremity reconstruction, breast reconstruction, burn reconstruction, skin cancer management, pediatric congenital abnormalities and cosmetic surgery.
Upon completion of his surgical training, Dr. Aquadro began his search for the ideal practice location. He enjoyed his time spent in the Midwest but it never felt like home. He and his wife were excited at the opportunity to move back to Alabama. East Alabama Plastic Surgery, LLC was founded in 2012 to provide the residents of the region with high quality patient care with integrity, respect, dignity and sensitivity.
Dr. Aquadro has active staff privileges at East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika, AL and East Alabama Ambulatory Surgical Center in Auburn, AL. He also performs surgeries in our AAAASF certified surgery suite at East Alabama Plastic Surgery.
