Lisa M. Metler, MS, PA-C, BCMAS

Lisa Metler, a board-certified Physician Assistant, has nearly two decades of medical experience, beginning her career as a cardiothoracic surgery P.A. at the University of Michigan after graduating with a Master of Science degree. Lisa successfully presented the Doctor of PA Studies Capstone Project: An intervention to reduce the dangers of topical lidocaine toxicity, at the University of Pittsburgh. She transitioned to a private practice in General Surgery, Plastic Surgery as well as leading a high-risk Breast Cancer Clinic. The latter experience treating many young patients undergoing the arduous cancer treatment protocols would forge her passion in treating her patients during their cancer recovery process.

Building on her time at the Breast Cancer Clinic, her interest led her to seek extensive training and certification in aesthetic procedures in order to bring that aspect as an intrinsic part of a breast cancer survivor’s recovery. This patient-centric focus further evolved into her starting an aesthetic practice of incorporating her surgical skills and aesthetic innovations to elevate her patients’ self-esteem and confidence while at the same time nurturing her natural interest for teaching. Running a successful aesthetic practice has also taught her how to provide excellent patient relationships.
