Having given over 100 lectures on plastic surgery both nationally and internationally, the doctor is board-certified in plastic surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It can be divided into two main categories – reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. A plastic surgeon’s primary responsibility is performing surgical and non-surgical procedures, and they use a variety of reparative and reconstructive techniques to get the job done.

Among his most notable achievements, Dr. Maguina has been the recipient of the On-Time Doctor Award (2018, 2017, 2015, 2014, 2009), Patients’ Choice Award (2018, 2017, 2015), and Compassionate Doctor Recognition (2017, 2014).
