Meet Dr. Hart
The Plastic Surgery Group of Atlanta is honored to announce the addition of Dr. Alexandra Hart as the newest surgeon member to our growing family! Dr. Hart joins us after having completed her outstanding medical and clinical education at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. She excelled during her training, achieving the highest score amongst her fellow residents on the annual surgical in-service examination, and she has published numerous clinical and basic science papers detailing concepts and techniques critical to the practice of plastic and aesthetic surgery. With attention to detail and dedication to her patients, Dr. Hart offers customized treatment plans that allow all of her patients to achieve their best possible results.
What Sets Her Apart
Dr. Hart’s fundamental passion for medicine developed at an early age when she participated in two medical mission trips to the country of Costa Rica. There, she witnessed the tremendously positive impact her charitable work had on the indigent population she encountered while there, primarily the women and children in need. These experiences made a lasting impression on Dr. Hart, so much so that she decided to become a doctor. While in medical school, she continued her interest in women’s health and dedicated a significant amount of her free time away from her studies to research methods to improve the quality of women’s lives after breast cancer treatment. Specifically, she studied the personal journeys encountered by breast cancer survivors, those after total breast removal (mastectomy), a critical and emotional time when women typically feel the most vulnerable and insecure, versus women who underwent mastectomy with immediate breast reconstruction, the time when women regain their self-esteem and enjoy an improved quality of life when they actually feel “whole” again. It was this research and the impact reconstructive surgery had on her research patients that led to her choosing plastic surgery as her career.
Skills and Expertise
With her broad experience in the field of plastic surgery and interest in aesthetic improvements in body, breast, and facial anatomy, Dr. Hart has fine-tuned her artistic approach to both surgical and nonsurgical treatments of her patients. Proud to call herself an “expert listener,” Dr. Hart uses each patient’s individual story, concerns, and goals to tailor a custom plan of action, whether using state-of-the-art nonsurgical injectables, cosmetic laser systems, anti-aging cosmeceuticals, or even surgery. Informing and educating her patients through every step, Dr. Hart is passionate about her care of each patient, as well as their individual experience and results. A few of the surgical procedures she is most passionate about are breast surgery (breast augmentation, breast lift, reduction, and reconstruction), mommy makeovers, as well as body contouring with suction and laser assistance.
Education and Training
After completing her bachelor's degree at the University of Georgia, Dr. Hart obtained her doctorate of medicine degree from the Emory University School of Medicine. There, she was awarded the position of administrative chief resident of plastic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Hart has written many recent publications about improving the quality of life after breast cancer and reconstruction:

Outside of her busy operating room and injectable clinic, Dr. Hart enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, Presley, and staying fit with weekly workouts at Orange Theory. She can also be found dining out at one of her favorite Atlanta restaurants because cooking is NOT one of her favorite activities! However, learning about you and your goals definitely IS a favorite, and she is excited to meet you!
