“Dr. Ashley Chandler not only made everything easier but more comfortable, ending up with great results and for the way those results helped me to feel confident in my body again I am forever thankful.” -Carmen R.
Dr. Chandler found her love for surgery when she was just 11 years old. She accompanied her father, an orthopedic surgeon, for “Daughters to Work Day.” From that point on, she knew that she wanted to touch people’s lives through medicine and surgery.
She was awarded a full scholarship to attend Florida State University. While at FSU, Dr. Chandler worked in a neuroscience research lab studying the effects of estrogen on metabolism. Dr. Chandler graduated with honors with a BS in Exercise Physiology and a double minor in Biology and Chemistry. She continued her academic journey by attending medical school at FSU as well. During her last year of medical school, she found that she truly loved working to help restore women’s bodies and self-confidence after breast cancer.
After graduating at the top of her medical school class, Dr. Chandler was inducted into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society, the highest medical school academic honor. After her general surgery internship at Virginia Tech, Dr. Chandler was accepted into a six-year integrated residency in the specialty of plastic surgery in New York. During her residency, Dr. Chandler gained extensive knowledge and skill from leading plastic surgeons, providing the foundation and skill to perfect her operative technique.
To continue her training in breast reconstruction and aesthetics, Dr. Chandler completed a fellowship with Dr. Dennis Hammond, a leading plastic surgeon in the area of aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the breast.
Dr. Chandler joined Charlotte Plastic Surgery in 2020. During her time off, she enjoys spending time with her husband Josh, and two sons Jack and Rhett. She loves to cook, travel, and enjoys being outside running, walking, sailing, or kayaking. During the evening, you can almost always find her walking or running with her family and their dog, Bailey.
