Dr. Ingram joined Marvel Cosmetic Surgery as a fellow in cosmetic surgery in May, 2017 and as a partner in May, 2018. Dr. Ingram is a graduate of Yale University, where he received a degree in Mathematics and Philosophy, summa cum laude. While at Yale, he was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, was a National Merit Scholar, and a William Randolph Hearst Foundation Scholar. Dr. Ingram began his medical career at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, where he was a Southwestern Medical Foundation Scholar throughout medical school. He was one of three students in the country who “matched” straight into Plastic Surgery directly out of medical school and completed his Plastic Surgery residency at UT Southwestern, currently the number one ranked program in the United States.
Dr. Ingram continued his studies at the clinic of Ivo Pitanguy, the father of modern cosmetic surgery, in Rio de Janeiro prior to studying craniofacial surgery at the University of Paris, France. He first moved to Nashville to complete a fellowship in cosmetic surgery and breast reconstruction under Patrick Maxwell at Baptist Hospital, completed a fellowship in facial plastic surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center, and first attained board certification in plastic surgery in 1999.
Dr. Ingram’s love for cosmetic surgery was shaped by his broad experience early in his career. He developed an appreciation for the importance not only of restoring normal form and function through reconstructive procedures, but also of enhancing every person’s innate beauty through cosmetic surgery. Dr. Ingram primarily focuses on cosmetic and plastic surgery of the face and body, especially surgery of the breast and body contouring.
