His efforts are part of a broader project - The Surgical Friends Foundation. This is an organization which is dedicated to helping patients who may not have access to medical and reconstructive surgery but badly need it.
Many of these patients are children from underprivileged nations, where medical services are often prohibitively expensive.
In addition to helping those in need, the foundation's goal is to train doctors from these regions in a variety of surgical techniques, so that they will be able to perform the operations on patients themselves.
After her surgeries, Tanya will appear on the Tyra Banks show, to exhibit the results of Dr Calvert's philanthropic plastic surgery and promote awareness of The Surgical Friends Foundation.
Patients who are planning to undergo any kind of reconstructive plastic surgery should first consult a qualified surgeon. It's important that individuals have realistic expectations and are made aware of the risks associated with the operation.
Dr. Calvert is a board certified plastic surgeon and member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
