Originally from Chicago, Dr. Urbaniak attended the University of Illinois in Chicago and subsequently earned his medical degree from Rush Medical College. Thereafter, he was accepted into a highly sought-after plastic surgery residency at Michigan State University, one of the oldest medical training programs in the country. It was here that he was able to work with and train under many leaders in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Following his residency, he completed three additional fellowships in both reconstructive and plastic surgery. These included a dedicated body contouring fellowship in Charlotte, North Carolina, where he worked alongside one of the most renowned surgeons in the field of surgical body procedures. Throughout his extensive training that extended from the Midwest to the southern United States, he performed thousands of surgical procedures. During this time, he was able to effectively develop his craft and expand his wide breadth of cosmetic knowledge.

Beginning his clinical practice of plastic surgery in the state of Michigan, Dr. Urbaniak was appointed Clinical Assistant Professor for the Michigan State University, his alma mater, at the College of Human Medicine in the Division of Plastic Surgery. During his tenure there, he was actively involved in medical student and resident education, even earning awards and recognitions while carrying out this position.

While training under the best surgeons in his field, Dr. Urbaniak refined his craft and developed the skills that garnered him recognition throughout his thriving career. He earned board certification in plastic surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, whose mission is to promote safe, ethical, efficacious plastic surgery to the public by maintaining high standards for the education, examination, certification, and continuous certification of plastic surgeons as specialists and subspecialists. He also attained membership status with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the Florida Society of Plastic Surgeons.

The doctor’s hard work and dedication to his craft earned him invitations to speak at numerous lectures and conferences. He has also published several peer-reviewed articles and co-authored a textbook chapter in the Encyclopedia of Body Sculpting after Massive Weight Loss.

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It can be divided into two main categories – reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. A plastic surgeon’s primary responsibility is performing surgical and non-surgical procedures, and they use a variety of reparative and reconstructive techniques to get the job done.

On the subject of his volunteer work, Dr. Urbaniak is an active volunteer with Operation Smile. He has participated in mission trips to Paraguay to repair cleft lip and palate deformities in patients without access to specialized surgical care.
