ABOUT DR. CHRISTIE

Born in Hong Kong and raised in Macau, Italy, Switzerland, Australia and the U.S.,      Dr. Christie is a double Board-Certified plastic surgeon that appreciates the differences ethnicity has on aging and customizes plans to address unique ethnic concerns.  “Growing up with nine sisters all over the world has shaped my beauty influences and has helped me realize the need for curated beauty plans that remain timeless.”

As a double Board-Certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christie takes time to ensure that each patient’s individual needs and ethnicity are addressed for optimal, natural results. Her procedures including minimally-invasive facial rejuvenation, skin-tightening, body contouring, breast augmentation and breast reconstruction to name a few.

One of Dr. Christie’s passions includes helping women who have battled breast cancer. She reconstructs their breasts, allowing them once again to embrace the femininity they thought was lost. A mentor to patients and students alike, Dr. Christie recognizes how important her role is as a female surgeon and serves as an inspiration to many.

 

Dr. Christie Prendergast overcame a disadvantaged upbringing to work her way through college and medical school. With just $100  to her name, she worked a full time job while teaching organic chemistry part-time as a means to pay the bills. Through hard work and diligence, she studied both general surgery and plastic surgery to become the accomplished surgeon she is today. Dr. Christie is Board-Certified by the American Board of Surgery (ABS), and Board-Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).
 

"Aging gracefully takes an artist to guide patients to interventions that deliver natural and balanced aesthetics"

- Dr. Christie
