While a plastic surgery resident at the University of Massachusetts, Dr. Ekstrom went on a medical mission to Guatemala to learn cleft lip and palate surgery. Her teacher was Dr. Juris Bunkis, who, at the time, was on the plastic surgery faculty at the University of California in San Francisco. Here is an interesting video from that trip: They have remained friends and this year, Dr. Ekstrom asked Dr. Bunkis to join her practice to offer his expertise in facial rejuvenation, rhinoplasty, and gluteal (buttocks)/calf and pectoral implants.
