Dr. Paul McCluskey earned a Bachelor of Science degree with honors from Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi before receiving his medical degree from the University of Mississippi where he completed an internship in Anesthesiology. During his internship, he realized the importance of reconstruction plastic surgery after his mother underwent a mastectomy for breast cancer. Reconstructive breast surgery played a huge role in her recovery inspiring him to learn all he could about the procedure while leading ongoing research projects with Dr. John McCraw and Dr. Bill Lineaweaver in the Plastic Surgery division at the University of Mississippi. Dr. McCluskey then finished a five-year residency in General Surgery and as Chief Resident, his breast reconstruction research was published and he presented his findings at local and national meetings. Dr. McCluskey was then selected to enter the highly competitive Plastic Surgery residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and in Dallas where he was taught by leaders and innovators in the field of cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgery. Through his training, Dr. McCluskey has been honored for his efforts as a teacher of residents and medical students and he was a multi-year recipient of “Resident of the Year” awards. He has also authored several peer-reviewed journal articles on a variety of topics including cosmetic surgery, breast lift, breast reduction, breast reconstruction, and facial reconstruction after skin cancer.
