Born in Nigeria and raised in the Netherlands, Dr. Ayewah grew up with an appreciation for diversity in languages, ethnic backgrounds, cultures and traditions. It’s no surprise that she chose to embrace NYC as her home – the melting pot of the world! Dr. Ayewah attended Baylor University where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology with minors in Chemistry and Chinese Mandarin. At this formative stage, she discovered the field of Surgery and the incredible instant gratification of using your hands to change lives.
After graduation, she went on to medical school at Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Ayewah assumed multiple prestigious local and national leadership positions, including becoming the first Black Female National President of the Student Osteopathic Surgical Association (SOSA). Dr. Ayewah moved to Manhattan, NY where she completed a surgical intern year at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Roosevelt, and concluded her General Surgery residency in Brooklyn, NY. During residency, she realized that her love for art, design and creative projects could be expressed professionally by focusing on aesthetic surgery. She completed an AACS General Cosmetic Surgery fellowship under the guidance of Dr. Jacob Haiavy MD FACS, former president of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
Dr. Ayewah chose to become a Cosmetic Surgeon because she loves the amazing way that both subtle and dramatic physical changes can transform a person’s entire demeanor and self-esteem. She specializes in body contouring, breast surgery and mommy makeovers. Her goal is always to make her patients look and feel like their most authentic selves. In her free time, Dr. Ayewah likes to practice wellness and self care, read books, paint, and spend time with her wonderful husband.
