Dr. Lawrence Birnbaum began his practice after completing a one-year fellowship as a plastic surgeon with the East African Flying Doctor Service. Upon his return to the US, he quickly rose to fame when in 1974 he published a paper describing what is now recognized as the first realistic appearing post-mastectomy breast reconstruction, utilizing his invention of "tissue expanders". For two years, he taught the world's only course on breast reconstruction to his fellow plastic surgeons. Then, for many years, a variety of breast reconstruction implants bore his name. He wrote a number of papers, contributed to books, and lectured around the world. He continued his acclaimed practice for 44 years until his retirement at the age of 80.
