Stephanie Stewart, PA-C
As a teenager Stephanie was in a car accident that changed her life and facial features forever. For many years after, Stephanie underwent multiple reconstruction procedures and cosmetic improvements. Throughout this experience, Stephanie knew she wanted to offer people those same life changing procedures which led her into the medical field. She attended Wayne State University for her undergraduate degree and University of Bridgeport for her Masters in Physician Assistant Studies. Stephanie has trained extensively all over the country and has adapted a “full face balancing” model when it comes to the treatments she offers her patients as well as how she trains other TAM injectors.
