Meet Our Team
At the Couture Surgeon we offer a wide variety of personalized aesthetic and reconstructive procedures in the setting of an incredible female staff, committed to excellent patient care helmed by Dr Julie Ferrauiola. Dr. Julie’s background in art and fashion coupled with her candid bedside manner, honesty and integrity creates a safe and fun environment for our patients to explore self-care and ways to boost self-esteem.
Dr. Julie Ferrauiola
Dr. Ferrauiola started her career as a classically trained fine artist. Since the age of eight she trained at a private art studio in all media including watercolor, oil painting, sculpture and printmaking among others. She was named a New Jersey Governor’s Scholar of the Fine Arts in 1997.
She then went on to pursue fashion design as an undergraduate and after working in the industry for a few years decided to change paths completely.
Dr. Ferrauiola returned to school to complete her pre-medical coursework and then to medical school at St. George’s University School of Medicine. During this time, she found an incredible mentor in Dr. Richard A. D’Amico, a renowned plastic and reconstructive surgeon and former president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Dr. Ferrauiola completed her general surgery training at Wright State University, attaining board certification followed by plastic and reconstructive surgery training at University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Dr. Ferrauiola is an active candidate member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons serving on multiple committees since residency.
After over a decade of mentorship, Dr. Ferrauiola had the pleasure of being welcomed at Dr. D’Amico’s practice to continue his legacy of excellence not only in technical skill and patient care, but in being a visionary for the specialty of plastic and reconstructive surgery.
