Dr. McFate grew up with his loving aunt and uncle in Irving, TX. He was taken in by them after his mother lost a difficult battle with breast cancer and the passing of his father. These tragic events provided the initial motivation for Dr. McFate to enter the medical field. He attended Nimitz High School where he played football and excelled in academics. Dr. McFate graduated college from Texas A&M University with a degree in biomedical engineering, which provides him with a unique perspective and ability to solve an array of surgical problems with innovative techniques. He graduated from the University of Texas Medical School in Houston where he quickly discovered a love for anatomy and completing technically challenging surgical tasks.
Dr. McFate completed his General Surgery residency spending years of training at Orlando Regional Healthcare and Houston Methodist Hospital. During his general surgery residency, Dr. McFate found his true calling in Plastic Surgery which combined his artistic eye, analytical mind, technical precision, and the opportunity to help patients with a multitude of surgical dilemmas. He was equally intrigued to pursue a specialty that utilizes special surgical techniques for reconstruction of the breast. These particular skills would give him the chance to help women who suffered from the same disease as his mother.
Dr. McFate completed his Plastic Surgery residency at Houston Methodist Hospital. During his residency in Houston, Dr. McFate trained in the largest medical center in the world working with numerous board certified plastic surgeons on a wide range of cosmetic and complex reconstructive cases.
