About Us

Stratis Gayner Plastic Surgery is known in Harrisburg and Lancaster, PA, and throughout the Eastern Seaboard for providing exceptional plastic surgery results for the face, breasts, and body. It all began in 2005 when Dr. John Stratis read an article about combining a facial plastic surgery specialist with a body plastic surgery specialist, something that only a handful of practices across the country offered. Those practices reported an increased ability to serve patients and enhanced patient satisfaction. Dr. Stratis couldn’t get the article out of his head; it was such a simple idea with obvious patient benefits, yet almost no one was doing it. After further research, he became convinced he wanted to pursue the idea. So he went looking for a face specialist.

After an extensive investigation, one name kept coming up as the doctor in the region who was doing excellent facial plastic surgery – Dr. Scott Gayner. Dr. Stratis approached Dr. Gayner with the idea and, after a good deal of getting to know each other, they opened the doors to their Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, cosmetic plastic surgery practice on Jan. 1st, 2007.

The advantages of having specialized plastic surgeons can be profound. In Harrisburg, they are unique to Stratis Gayner Plastic Surgery.

Benefits of
a focused approach

The advantages of having specialized plastic surgeons can be profound. In Harrisburg, they are unique to Stratis Gayner Plastic Surgery.


Plastic surgery is one of the most rapidly changing fields in medicine today. New devices, procedures, and drugs are introduced regularly. With Dr. Stratis focused on body procedures and Dr. Gayner focused on facial procedures, each of them can stay up-to-date on the latest developments in his own discipline. With every learning opportunity from seminars to medical journals focused on their specialty, their knowledge in their area of focus continues to grow. The result? Their patients can rest assured that Dr. Stratis and Dr. Gayner are fluent in the latest techniques.


It’s not unusual for a patient’s surgical plan to include both a facial procedure and a body procedure. In a conventional plastic surgery practice, the plastic surgeon will perform both operations on the same day, one after the other. Dr. Stratis and Dr. Gayner can work on a patient simultaneously, typically reducing the time for surgery by half. With a simultaneous operation, the patient is under anesthesia for less time, minimizing recovery time and risk. Since the surgeons are also working for less time (4 hours instead of 8, for example) doctor fatigue is reduced. Also, because the facility and staff are needed for less time, a lower cost may be possible.


We offer a wide variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures to address each patient’s unique concerns. Still, some procedures are especially gratifying to perform because they bring immense confidence and fulfillment to our patients. These procedures include:


Cross-consultation is another benefit unique to Stratis Gayner Plastic Surgery. Typically, patients come to their consultations with concerns related to either the body or face. Sometimes patients may also have concerns about another area of the body. When this occurs, Drs. Stratis and Gayner will work collaboratively on the patient’s case.
