Heather Levites, M.D.
Fellowship Trained Plastic Surgeon
Chapel Hill, NC
Dr. Heather Levites is an HKB fellowship trained plastic surgeon with a special interest in advanced cosmetic surgery. She earned her undergraduate degree at MIT after attending an arts high school in New York City. She earned her MD from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and completed her plastic surgery training at Duke University.
While at Duke, Dr. Levites honed her surgical skills focusing on aesthetic surgery of the face, pediatric plastic surgery, hand surgery, craniofacial trauma reconstruction and oncologic reconstruction. She further bolstered her aesthetic surgery expertise under the guidance of Drs. Kortesis and Bharti at H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery. She is the author of multiple peer reviewed publications, has given presentations at many national plastic surgery conferences, and helped launch “The Resident Review”, a podcast aimed at educating plastic surgery trainees around the world.
Dr. Levites grew up in New York City studying to be a dancer and fine artist, and still enjoys dance and art in her spare time. Her childhood experiences taught her the value of precision, poise, humility and respect. Like an artist, the human body has become her canvas, and the scalpel the brush. As a mom herself, Dr. Levites understands the value of restoring the body of a mother back to her previous form. She recognizes that each patient’s goals and desires are unique, and tailors her surgical plan to help her patients look and feel their best.
