He was also the first plastic surgeon to report internationally on the use of the Axis 3D imager which helps patients see how breast implants sizes and shapes will look on their body.
Dr. Gray is internationally recognized as the originator of Scarless Breast Reduction, a major advancement in breast reduction surgery, now used as frequently as the traditional method by plastic surgeons world-wide. Dr. Gray has performed over 2,000 cases in the last 20 years.

Dr. Gray is committed to staying on the forefront of plastic surgery. He spends about four weeks per year attending professional conferences and studying the latest developments in surgical procedures, such as buttock enhancement, the expanding use of fat grafting and in non-invasive cosmetic treatments, such as Ultherapy and Coolsculpting.

Dr. Gray’s work in Developing Countries
It takes heart to be an outstanding plastic surgeon. The extent of Dr. Gray’s work as a plastic surgeon is not limited to New Hampshire, nor even to the United States. He has gone on volunteer trips through Interplast, Rotaplast (part of Rotary International) and Medical Missions for Children, providing burn repair and correction of cleft lip and palate disorders to children in developing countries.
Dr. Gray has made trips to Argentina, Vietnam, Chile, Venezuela and Ecuador to provide free cleft lip and palate repair to impoverished children who would otherwise go without treatment. On his most recent trip to Guayaquil, Ecuador, Dr. Gray said, “My gratification comes from seeing the happiness on the mothers’ face when her child looks normal.”
