Dr. Leslie Branch is a female plastic surgeon who was born and raised in Winston-Salem, NC. She graduated from Pepperdine University in 2007 in the top 10% of her class with a degree in sports medicine. With a neurosurgeon as a father and an artist as a mother, she decided to pursue her medical degree at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. After graduating in 2011, she stayed at Wake Forest Baptist Health for a 6 year integrated plastic and reconstructive surgery residency. Having performed and assisted on over 5200 cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, she obtained a diverse experience in advanced and cutting edge plastic surgery procedures. She hopes to specialize in breast, cosmetic, body contouring, cancer reconstruction, hand/face trauma, and skin cancer surgeries. Also during her time at Wake Forest, she published 13 scientific papers in the plastic and general surgery literature and presented at 10 meetings.
Her decision to become a physician began with a medical mission trip to Cap-Haitian, Haiti with her father and grandfather. This trip ignited an interest in medicine and giving back to those in need of medical care. She has since been on multiple medical mission trips to Togo, Bolivia, Guatemala, Haiti, Mexico, and Nigeria, and received multiple awards and scholarships for her service. She hopes to make medical missions a lifelong commitment.
Dr. Branch has been dedicated to the pursuit of medicine and helping others for almost 20 years. She believes in treating patients with the utmost empathy and care. Her philosophy is to educate and empower patients to make the best decisions for themselves. Her goals for patients are to create natural, beautiful and long-lasting results. She especially has a passion for treating women with breast cancer and providing them the best opportunities for reconstruction.
