William F. DeLuca Jr. MD FACS is a board certified plastic surgeon in Albany, NY at DeLuca Plastic Surgery
. Prior to his 26 years of private practice experience, Dr. DeLuca enjoyed 4 years of training in NYC & Norfolk, VA directly alongside several of the most noted plastic surgeons in the world, including Dr. Thomas Rees and Dr. Sherrell Aston.
Dr. DeLuca's philosophy towards plastic surgery is simple: success requires meticulous attention to detail, technical expertise and most importantly, a true and trusted eye for beauty.
The benefits to Dr. DeLuca's focus on consistent quality and comprehensive care are made clear in both his before and after surgery photos
from past and current patients.
Dr. DeLuca specializes in cosmetic surgery of the breast (breast augmentation
& breast lift
), body (tummy tuck
) and face (facelift
& eyelid lifts
). His goal for each and every patient is to achieve the most attractive and naturally beautiful result possible.
Dr. DeLuca is certified by both the American Board of Surgery
(1983) and the American Board of Plastic Surgery
Dr. DeLuca obtained his plastic surgery training at the two most prestigious institutions for plastic surgery at the time; Eastern Virginia Medical College, a preeminent program for developing techniques in breast reconstruction; and Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, where he served as one of the last fellows of Dr. Thomas Rees, the most noted cosmetic surgeon of his generation. In addition to his extensive training and education in medicine and surgery, Dr. DeLuca was also a Rufus Choate Scholar at Dartmouth College and graduated Magnum Cum Laude. He also attended Deerfield Academy in Deerfield Massachusetts for his high school education.
Dr. DeLuca has plastic surgery privileges with all major Tri-City hospitals (Albany, Schenectady & Troy) but performs the vast majority of his procedures at St. Peter’s Ambulatory Surgery Center in Albany, NY (1375 Washington Avenue). His personally trained, tightly knit team of nurses and board certified anesthesiologists combine to create a surgical experience that is highly regarded not only for the quality of aesthetic results but patient safety and comfort as well. Dr. DeLuca’s extensive surgical experience amassed over a career that has seen thousands of unique and challenging cases is perhaps the greatest contributing factor to his incredibly low post-op complication rate.
Dr. DeLuca has operated on patients who have travel from as far away as Australia to secure his surgical talents and expertise. That said, most live within a day's drive (or short flight) to Albany (e.g Saratoga Springs, Clifton Park, Glens Falls, Plattsburgh, Rutland & Burlington VT to the north; Utica, Rome, Syracuse & Binghamton to the west; Hudson, Kingston & Manhattan to the south; Bennington, Pittsfield, Springfield & Boston MA to the east; and as far away as Florida, California, Maine, Toronto & Montreal Canada, Great Britain and Australia ).
