Michael Fallucco, MD • Joseph Parks, MD • Ankit R. Desai, MD
Drs. Ankit Desai, Michael Fallucco, and Joseph Parks are board-certified plastic surgeons who are dedicated to providing compassionate, personalized care, always remembering that a patient’s needs come first. They perform cosmetic procedures including breast augmentation, tummy tucks, liposuction, facial rejuvenation, fat transfer, and body contouring, as well as breast reconstruction and surgical treatment of migraine headache pain.
Drs. Desai and Fallucco have performed over 1,000 successful Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator (DIEP) flaps which allows a woman to reconstruct a breast removed for breast cancer with her own abdominal fat without an implant. DIEP flaps are performed at the time of breast cancer surgery, or even years down the road after cancer removal. Some women even choose to remove their implants and replace with a DIEP flap. In addition, all our doctors offer direct-to-implant breast reconstruction using the whole array of breast implants, including the use of “form stable” or “gummy bear” implants.
Dr. Ankit Desai is a board-certified plastic surgeon and Jacksonville native. After graduating from The Bolles School, he began his undergraduate career at Johns Hopkins University studying biomedical engineering. He was then accepted into the highly selective Junior Honors Medical Program, an accelerated program at the University of Florida. He received his M.D. from UF, where he served as class president for four years, a testament to his leadership and affability. Dr. Desai went on to complete his plastic surgery residency at St. Louis University and further training in cosmetic surgery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Dr. Desai returned to Jacksonville to bring state-of-the art plastic surgery, including fat transfer facial rejuvenation, breast augmentation,composite breast surgery using the patient’s own fat, labiaplasty (aesthetic vaginal rejuvenation), tummy tuck and body contouring.
Dr. Michael Fallucco grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and received his B.A. and M.D. from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. He was accepted into the highly competitive plastic surgery residency at St. Louis University. While in training, Dr. Fallucco was recognized for both his clinical and research endeavors. He is widely published and has presented research in plastic surgery at both national and international conferences.
Dr. Fallucco performs cosmetic facial and body procedures as well as working with patients after weight loss surgery to reshape and tighten loose skin. He is the only physician in the area to offer a same-day outpatient procedure to treat headache pain, drawing upon his unique peripheral nerve surgery training to alleviate pain in patients who suffer from chronic migraines. Dr. Fallucco’s other clinical interests include minimally invasive fat transfer in which a patient’s own regenerative cells from liposuction are utilized to restore the areas of the face, breasts and buttocks.
Dr. Joseph Parks grew up in Newnan, Georgia and received a B.S. in biology from Vanderbilt University. He completed his medical degree at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia before entering the general surgery training program at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in Memphis. While training in general surgery, he became fascinated with the diversity and the possibilities in the discipline of plastic surgery and was offered the rare opportunity to matriculate directly into the three year plastic surgery program at the University of Tennessee.
Dr. Parks has authored multiple articles and abstracts appearing in widely circulated plastic surgery publications. He has given lectures and presentations at both the regional and national level. His clinical practice focuses on restorative surgery after breast cancer, body contouring after weight loss, breast augmentation and a full range of cosmetic procedures.
