“Dr. Nyame is genuinely a kind, caring, and passionate person! All of these wonderful qualities reflect in his work and care! He not only ensured that I had great results, he stressed the importance of my safety being his top priority! Dr. Nyame truly goes above and beyond and values each of his patients.” -Keuna M.


Dr. Theodore T Nyame is a Harvard trained, Board-Certified plastic surgeon. Originally growing up in a small town located in Ghana, West Africa with no running water and no paved roads, Dr. Nyame and his family overcame all odds after his parents relocated his family to the Bronx, NY. Here he began his education with a devoted father who wished for Dr. Nyame and his brother to go into the medical field. Shortly after moving, the brothers quickly adapted to American culture, where they advanced through the academic ranks of their peers, ending up at the top of their classes.

Before coming to Charlotte, NC he started his medical training at Cornell University, where he studied chemistry and chemical biology. Graduating with honors, he continued his education by attending Harvard University for medical school. Receiving his Doctorate of Medicine, Dr. Nyame then chose to study plastic surgery at the Harvard Plastic Surgery Program, a prestigious program that only accepts 3 candidates out of hundreds of applicants.

Once his training was complete, he earned his place on specialized surgical teams performing groundbreaking operations, including the first-ever face transplant, and participated in several other monumental occasions. He has traveled across the world – from Norway to Australia – to spread information on the latest techniques and technologies to his esteemed peers in the plastic surgery community and hone his skills. Dr. Nyame has now been in Charlotte, NC for about 7 years with his wife, a practicing cardiologist, and their two children.

The secret to Dr. Nyame’s unconditional passion for results-oriented service to his patients is not a secret at all. “For me, walking out of a treatment knowing that I delivered the best work possible for my patients is most important,” he explains. His promise is to combine experience with personal interest to deliver the best work possible for his patients.
