R.E.S.T.O.R.E. was founded by Harvard-trained board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael K. Obeng. Born into poverty in Ghana, Africa, Dr. Obeng persevered over unimaginable obstacles, and thrived against all odds to arrive at this culmination of professional and personal success. His deep compassion and care for patients derives from these humble beginnings, and he takes pride in treating each patient like family. Dr. Obeng travels to third world countries to donate his surgical skills through R.E.S.T.O.R.E. He also advocates for the underprivileged in the U.S., educating them about the post-reconstructive surgery options that are available after breast cancer treatment. He is a motivational speaker, the Director of MiKO Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills and the author of Forever Femme: A Woman’s Guide to Breast Reconstruction.
