St. Mary cosmetic surgeon receives national award

Dr. James Katowitz, director of Oculofacial Plastic Surgery at Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania, presents the Henry I. Baylis Cosmetic Surgery Award to Dr. Alan Brackup

St. Mary Medical Center cosmetic surgery specialist Dr. Alan Brackup was honored at the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) 48th annual Fall Scientific Symposium held in New Orleans in November.

Brackup received the Henry I. Baylis Cosmetic Surgery Award in recognition of his longstanding contributions in the field of cosmetic surgery.

As part of the national recognition, Brackup presented the Henry Baylis Cosmetic Surgery Award Lecture on Nov. 10 at the convention, attended by more than 800 cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons. His topic “The 2-Hour Facelift: A Love Affair Over 20 years and 2,000 Cases” details how he has personally refined and perfected a challenging procedure to enhance results and limit surgical risks to patients.

Brackup, who has been a member of the medical staff at St. Mary for more than 25 years, is the first surgeon in the United States to be double board certified in cosmetic surgery (American Board of Cosmetic Surgery) and ophthalmology (American Board of Ophthalmology).

He serves as the chairman of the Medical Board of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission and is responsible for medical policy as it relates to the combat sports of mixed martial arts and boxing in Pennsylvania. He has served as the ringside physician for numerous boxing title events and Ultimate Fighting Championships, including the inaugural UFC event in 1993.
