Dr. Harold Bafitis

D.O., M.P.H., F.A.C.O.S., F.A.C.S.

Dr. Bafitis is a distinguished doctor of osteopathy with decades of experience in plastic surgery. He is double board certified in both general surgery and in plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Bafitis was the first osteopathic plastic surgeon to earn the designation of FACS (fellow in the American College of Surgeons), and he also earned the coveted title of fellow in the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons (FACOS). He is known for his extensive cosmetic expertise and the development of an innovative technique that integrates liposculpture and abdominoplasty.

Board Certifications

  • American Osteopathic Board of Surgery, certified in General Surgery
    Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
  • American Osteopathic Board of Surgery, certified in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
  • American Association of Physician Specialists, certified in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Why does it matter?

In the United States, doctors must obtain state licensure to practice medicine, but this doesn’t necessarily reflect their qualifications. Achieving board certification requires doctors to surpass basic licensing requirements and continually stay updated with the latest advancements in their field to uphold their certification. Staying abreast of these advancements ensures access to the most beneficial healthcare options for you and your well-being.

He obtained a master’s degree in public health from the University of Texas School of Public Health, Houston Health Science Center in Houston, Texas, and a medical degree Cum Laude from the University of North Texas, Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Dr. Bafitis then went on to complete a full five-year general surgery residency at Grandview Medical Center, in Dayton, Ohio, an affiliate of Ohio University’s prestigious medical school.

Passionate about using his medical skills to help underprivileged communities, Dr. Bafitis has taken part in national and international mission trips for most of his practice. He provided reconstructive surgeries free of charge to patients in Bolivia, Peru, and Cambodia, in addition to volunteering his time educating other surgeons.

Manny recommends always starting a makeup look with clean, hydrated skin (a good skincare routine is always a good start as well).
