About Dr. Hubert

Board Certified and renowned plastic surgeon Darrin M. Hubert MD, FACS

 

Education and Background

Dr. Hubert grew up in the country, outside of Erie, Pennsylvania. He was an Academic All-American basketball player and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Rochester, in Rochester, New York, with a degree in biology. His education then took him to the Ivy League for medical school at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn), which has ranked in the top three to five medical schools in the whole country for decades.

For the next (and most important) part of his training as a plastic surgeon, Dr. Hubert stayed at Penn to work with and learn from some of the most distinguished surgical faculty. This six-year program is one of the finest and most competitive in the nation, and he spent time at some of the oldest and most prestigious adult and pediatric hospitals. He also completed an additional one-year fellowship in the laboratory, researching the biology of fat transfer and presenting his work at regional and national meetings.

Credentials and Awards

As a diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Hubert is a board-certified plastic surgeon. He has served as the chief of plastic surgery at CJW Medical Center on Richmond’s south side of the James River since 2016.

He has been recognized for several years with awards that include Richmond Magazine Top Doc, Virginia Living Magazine Top Doc, MEDARVA Patient Choice Award, and Best Bedside Manner in OurHealth Magazine for Richmond. Since 2016, Dr. Hubert has served on the committee which writes and edits the annual in-service examination given by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons to both residents in training and practicing plastic surgeons everywhere.

Specialties

Dr. Hubert’s areas of specialty include cosmetic surgery of the breast, face, and entire body. Some of these are facelift, neck lift, eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), brow lift, rhinoplasty (nose job), breast augmentation, breast implant revision and removal, breast lift (mastopexy), breast reduction, gynecomastia (male breast surgery), tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction, Brazilian butt lift, fat transfer, and arm lift. He is skilled in non-invasive cosmetic procedures including botox and facial filler treatments, lasers such as fractional carbon dioxide (CO2), thread lifts, and others.

When it comes to reconstructive surgery, Dr. Hubert has a special interest in breast surgery including reconstructive microsurgery. In addition to implant breast reconstruction, he routinely performs DIEP flap microsurgery for breast reconstruction. This surgery is very complex, and only a handful of surgeons across Virginia offer this advanced option for women using their own tissue to make a new breast. Dr. Hubert has quite literally performed hundreds of these operations. He has been in private practice since 2007.

Personal Life

Outside of plastic surgery, Dr. Hubert enjoys exercise and raises chickens. He lives with his wife and three daughters in Hanover County.

Certification Matters

Be careful with other people who call themselves “cosmetic surgeons”. This can be a “buyer beware” market, and some people who advertise themselves as specializing in cosmetic surgery of a certain part of the body, are in fact, limited by their training and qualifications. For example, some people who do “cosmetic surgery” are actually dentists regulated by the state board of dentistry, not medicine.  Dr. Hubert is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, which is a member of the American Board of Medical Specialties, the gold standard for board certification of medical specialties.
