About ‘The Healing Curve’
Dr. Gary Motykie, a board certified Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, founded The Healing Curve nonprofit in 2008 to support women who have fought breast cancer successfully but are left with scars and breast tissue loss resulting from their mastectomy. Dr. Motykie was inspired to launch The Healing Curve when he received an overwhelming response to the episodes featuring him on E! Entertainment’s hit show Dr. 90210 where he highlighted breast reconstruction for breast cancer survivors. Today, The Healing Curve provides funding and support for surgeries that may be necessary to correct deformities arising out of cancer, trauma, birth defects, or a previous unsuccessful surgery.
About Dr. Gary Motykie
Dr. Gary Motykie is the founder, president and chairman of the board of The Healing Curve. He believes that the real art of plastic surgery is discovered in giving patients back the hope that they had been robbed off due to a physical deformity. Dr. Motykie says: “I initially performed the first breasts cancer surgeries on Dr 90210 because I felt that people needed to see what hope and joy plastic surgery is capable of bringing to patients.”
Following the show, Dr. Motykie was quick to realize that insurance providers often did not cover secondary surgeries addressing the aesthetic needs of cancer survivors, trauma victims and war veterans. This led to establishment of The Healing Curve, which now has a primary mission to provide reconstructive surgery to patients with physical deformities.
