Illuminating Discoveries

As a young professional photographer, Barry DiBernardo began to notice that his clients kept asking him to retouch their photos to make them look better. Curious and empathetic, he began to wonder if there was a way to permanently solve these flaws that were clearly bothering his customers.

Those two guiding motivations led Barry DiBernardo the photographer to become Dr. Barry DiBernardo - a world-renowned plastic surgeon who specializes in capturing the ability of light to change the human body, just as lighting can in a photograph.

Over the next 40 years, Dr. DiBernardo never stopped questioning or researching. In fact, medical device companies that were developing light-based technologies often seek out Dr. DiBernardo when they want their devices to be researched and developed. He has taken multiple devices safely from concept to market, and his innovative research into new technologies has led to techniques and devices that are now used in plastic surgery centers all over the globe.

Lighting the way for a generation

Dr. Barry DiBernardo got into the plastic surgery business after seeing how many people disliked looking at themselves in photographs. His guiding motivations are still those of the photographer: find ways to help people like the way they look - and share them. Today, that sharing comes not just in the operating room, but in the conference room.

Dr. DiBernardo is an acclaimed collaborator and speaker, known for sharing his wisdom and insight with a kind, friendly smile. As aesthetic medicine's "Idea Man," Dr. DiBernardo embraces the collaborative energy that comes from sharing ideas with fellow plastic surgery professionals. Along with his 40 years of innovation and expertise, Dr. DiBernardo's warmth and willingness to collaborate are why so many of his colleagues seek him out when they are stumped by a particularly difficult case.

His reputation for being thorough, data-driven, and guided by science as well as results make him a "must-listen" at plastic surgery conferences. Dr. DiBernardo truly believes that a plastic surgery field where doctors share their best practices freely is one that leads to better patient outcomes. It is that light that guides him, just as his light guides others.
