He specializes in cosmetic plastic surgery procedures such as Breast Augmentation, Revision Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Liposuction with Smartlipo, Cellulaze, Brazillian Butt Lifts, ThermiTight, Tummy Tucks, Rhinoplasty as well as a variety of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures.
Dr. Gray earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biochemistry and Master of Arts degree in Immunology at the University of California, Berkeley completing his undergraduate studies with honors. He then attended the University of California, Los Angeles Medical School, receiving, upon graduation the prestigious and highly coveted AOA Research Award; one of only five medical students in the nation to receive this distinction.

He completed fellowships in Plastic Surgery as well as Hand and Microsurgery in San Francisco and was the Chief Resident in Plastic Surgery in 1993- 1994.
Dr. Gray holds privileges at St. Mary’s Medical Center in San Francisco and Seton Medical Center, however, all of his cosmetic surgery is performed in his newly built, state of the art surgery suite: The Bay Area Surgery Center. His private, new surgical suite is AAAASF certified, ensuring the highest standard in patient safety. It showcases some of the best equipment and instruments available and is conveniently located within his office space. From the surgical suite, our patients enjoy the finest views of the San Francisco Bay while receiving the highest level of care from our skilled and compassionate surgical staff.
Dr. Gray has noted the growth of minimally invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures over the last 10 years. He was the first doctor in San Francisco to offer Ultherapy non-invasive skin tightening as well as ThermiTight and ThermiSmooth skin tightening technologies. He was also the first in San Francisco to offer ThermiVa non-surgical feminine rejuvenation. He has offered facial injectables like Botox, Xemoin and various dermal fillers since their inception.
Dr. Gray has waited for the perfect non-invasive fat reduction technology to arrive. Over the years, he passed up other technologies like focused ultrasound, radiofrequency and cryolipolysis because they were either too painful, had too many side effects or were ineffective. He has finally found the perfect fat reduction technology in SculpSure. A laser derived system that targets fat cells only, leaving the skin, tissues and organs unharmed. There in no pain during the treatment or post-treatment phase, it takes only 25 minutes, it is safe for all skin types, it does not leave dents, irregularities, or skin changes and gives an average 24% fat reduction with only one treatment. Dr. Gray strongly believes this is a wonderful treatment for those seeking a significant fat loss result with absolutely no downtime and very minimal risk.
Dr. Gray has given his patients over 20 years of excellence in cosmetic surgery and minimally invasive techniques. With the addition of SculpSure, he is now proud to offer the San Francisco Bay Area the very best in non-surgical fat reduction.
