Meet Dr. Diane Alexander
Board-Certified, Female Plastic Surgeon in Atlanta
Award-winning Atlanta plastic surgeon Dr. Diane Z. Alexander has a passion for helping women make the changes they desire to feel beautiful and confident in their appearance, through skillfully performed breast, body, and facial cosmetic and reconstructive procedures.
In 2000, she co-founded the first all-female plastic surgery practice in Atlanta, which is now Artisan Plastic Surgery.
“Plastic surgery is very personal and intimate. It’s not just about how the patients look, but about how they feel about themselves. I gain immense personal satisfaction from helping to restore my breast cancer patients through reconstruction and from helping my cosmetic patients enhance their beauty and self-esteem.”—Dr. Alexander

Education & Training
Dr. Alexander graduated cum laude from Yale University, where she studied history, art, and political science, as well as pre-medical courses. At Yale, she also performed as a cellist with the Yale Symphony. Dr. Alexander studied medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, graduating in 1990. She was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha national medical honor society and continued to play cello in a local orchestra during medical school.
“My interest in surgery developed during my clinical rotation in medical school at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The combination of intellectually analyzing a problem and then using my hands to fix it inspired me. I soon focused on plastic surgery as the sub-specialty that combines medical decision-making and precise technical skills with the opportunity to be creative. I view plastic surgery as an art—each patient is my canvas.”—Dr. Alexander
Following medical school, Dr. Alexander trained at Emory University in the general and plastic surgery residency programs. During her clinical training, she also worked as a fellow in the transplant immunology department with Drs. Chris Larsen and Tom Pearson. Using micro-surgical techniques, she performed mouse heart transplants as part of her research. She received grants for this work from the Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, co-published dozens of articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, and lectured extensively in the United States and abroad. Dr. Alexander has also been featured in local and national media outlets, including the New York Times.
