Greg Ruff, MD

North Carolina’s Plastic Surgeon

After receiving his undergraduate and medical degrees at the University of Michigan, Dr. Greg Ruff spent his residency in general surgery at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor. He followed this with a three-year residency in plastic surgery at Duke University and was asked to join the faculty. Following a year at NYU, completing a craniofacial fellowship, he returned to Durham.

At Duke, Dr Ruff established the Craniomaxillofacial Trauma Service and was director of the Cleft Palate Board. He taught for 16 years and described innovative craniofacial procedures. He also published and lectured extensively on maxillofacial and craniofacial surgery during that time.

In the early 1990s, Dr Ruff invented barbed sutures, now named Contour Threads, which are sutures that are ideal for lifting facial tissue in a procedure that is now called the Contour Lift. This suture is the only one of its kind to gain FDA approval, and many medical professionals predict that it may change the future of plastic surgery.

All these years of relevant experience combined with his empathy, enable Dr. Ruff to fulfill your surgical and emotional needs throughout your treatment – basically, the ideal doctor to lead a private practice.

Dr. Ruff is a member of the American Medical Association, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
