Dr. Peter A. Felice
Dr. Peter A. Felice, MD
Dr. Felice has a comprehensive surgical training background having completed his Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Residency at the University of Florida, where he gained invaluable experience and comfort operating on patients for facial aesthetic surgery, cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery, male gynecomastia surgery, as well as body contouring surgeries including abdominoplasty, liposuction, and mommy-makeover aesthetic procedures. He completed his General Surgery residency at the University of South Carolina where he was nominated by his peers and colleagues for the “Physician of the Year” award, and he was chosen to complete a 2-year Research Fellowship at the University of Michigan Section of Plastic Surgery where he authored over 20 Plastic Surgery publications and won Best Research Paper of the Year by the American Society of Maxillofacial Surgeons.
What excites and inspires Dr. Felice is his belief that Plastic Surgery creates the perfect balance of critical and creative thinking combined with precise operative skill to achieve optimal physical and psychological benefits for his patients. He enjoys collaborating with other physicians and surgeons, and is always enthusiastic about asking questions and exchanging ideas and techniques on how to improve and enhance his patient’s care. This, coupled with the loss of 3 of his own family members to breast cancer, helped to shape his passion to pursue a practice in Plastic Surgery. He is excited to call Greenville home and to join Advanced Cosmetic Surgery team where he will continue to build upon his skills and work with a compassionate, competent, and well-respected team.
Throughout his extensive Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery training at the University of Florida, Dr. Felice was exposed to a wide variety of surgical patients and procedures. He graduated with invaluable experience and comfort operating on patients for facial aesthetics and reconstruction; breast cancer reconstruction, breast augmentation, breast reduction, and breast lift surgery; male gynecomastia surgery; tummy-tuck and abdominoplasty, liposuction and fat grafting; hand and finger function and reconstruction surgery, and skin cancer surgery. He has a particular interest in breast augmentation and breast reduction, facial cosmetic surgery, breast cancer reconstruction, skin cancer removal and reconstruction, as well as body contouring.
Dr. Felice was awarded a 2-year Research Fellowship with the Section of Plastic Surgery at the University of Michigan where he performed research in both breast cancer and head and neck cancer. He has authored and contributed to over 20 peer-reviewed publications and won Best Research Paper of the Year by the American Society of Maxillofacial Surgeons in 2015. He continues to write, publish, and present original craniofacial and breast cancer research at national and international meetings.
During General Surgery training at the University of South Carolina, Dr. Felice learned the operative and clinical skills necessary to care for people across a wide variety of surgical disciplines. He was nominated for Physician of the Year by his hospital colleagues and peers, and was the winner of the annual General Surgery Department “Great Debate” competition. His proudest moment as a resident of USC is still his pinning and induction as a member of the “Trauma Team”. It was during his surgical training that Dr. Felice was exposed to an in-depth view of Plastic Surgery, and he fell in love with the diverse patient populations, the variety of cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures, and with how to provide both physical and psychological healing was possible for his surgical patients.
The basis for Dr. Felice’s medical school training began at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. While at Loyola, Dr. Felice volunteered with the International Service Immersion program and provided health care and public health education to people throughout Guatemala. He was a co-founder and editor of Ephemeris, an art and literary magazine featuring the works of Loyola students, faculty, and medical staff. He also co-founded and volunteered with the Stritch Writers’ Club Juvenile Detention Project, conducting weekly writing seminars with journaling, free-writing, and poetry classes for detainees at the Cook County Juvenile Detention Center in Chicago, IL.
Prior to beginning at Loyola, Dr. Felice attended Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. As a member of the Premed Program he majored in Biology and received a double minor in Chemistry and Theology. In addition to volunteering with the Student Admission Program, he was elected to the Student Government Senate and was a leader of the Appalachia Volunteers and Habitat for Humanity programs. He received Dean’s List First Honors for his academic excellence and was inducted into the Golden Key International Honor Society before graduating cum laude.
Dr. Felice is equipped with the utmost education and knowledge that are vital when considering choosing a Plastic Surgeon for your care. He is a thoughtful and articulate communicator, and patients and colleagues alike attest to his competence, empathy, and friendly disposition. His caring demeanor and dedication to helping his patients achieve gratifying results make him an exceptional addition to Advanced Cosmetic Surgery. We are proud to have Dr. Felice joining with Dr. McFadden in enhancing the lives of patients here in Greenville and the surrounding areas.
