Dr. Stampp is the cosmetic surgeon at Milk and Honey Body Cosmetic Surgery in Las Cruces, New Mexico, founded in 2021. This convenient location makes his practice accessible to individuals in Las Cruces and other areas in New Mexico, including Albuquerque. After graduating from the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, he completed his residency in general and trauma surgery at the esteemed Lincoln Medical Center/Weill Cornell in New York City. Since 2017, Dr. Stampp has practiced general surgery in Las Cruces.
While serving at various medical institutions, Dr. Stampp worked alongside fellow healthcare professionals who asked if he could perform cosmetic surgery procedures. Following these conversations, he recognized an opportunity to offer cosmetic surgical treatments in Las Cruces, thereby allowing patients to have these procedures nearer to home. His decision to set up a cosmetic surgery clinic in the area means that residents, including those from Albuquerque and other areas in New Mexico, have the convenience of accessing nearby cosmetic surgery care.
Shifting from General Surgery to Cosmetic Surgery
Dr. Stampp’s journey from general surgery to the specialized area of cosmetic surgery included a fellowship with the International Society of Cosmetogynecology. During this time, he had the opportunity to work with renowned cosmetic surgeons, Drs. Marco Pelosi II and III. Dr. Stampp integrated the knowledge he obtained from these trailblazers into his New Mexico cosmetic surgery practice.
It’s important to point out the subtle differences between plastic surgery, a wide-ranging field involving reconstructive methods, and cosmetic surgery, a specific area within that field that targets the enhancement of patients’ satisfaction and confidence in their physical appearance.
At Milk & Honey Cosmetic Surgery, we strive to enhance your body’s natural beauty with safe and reliable procedures. Our team of experts provides personalized care so you can rest assured that you’ll get the look you desire.
Combining an artistic perspective with surgical expertise, Dr. Stampp describes his approach to cosmetic surgery as “female empowerment through body contouring.” Reflecting on the impact of social media, he observes, “We all see ourselves and compare ourselves to others. That element of social media might be seen as unhealthy, but there’s also an element of those messages that’s truly empowering.” His clinical philosophy concentrates on this motivating aspect, collaborating with women to assist them in achieving the appearance they desire.
Initially, his patient base was largely comprised of women seeking reconstructive options post-breast cancer treatments. Over time, however, his focus has broadened. Milk and Honey Body Cosmetic Surgery has gained a reputation for conducting a variety of surgeries, such as breast augmentations, Brazilian butt lifts, tummy tucks, and liposculpture.
In 2020, Dr. Stamp was distinguished with the Golden Stethoscope Award for Excellence in Patient Care by MountainView Regional Medical Center. Subsequently, in 2021, the Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce bestowed the Healthcare Innovation Award upon him. He was also elected the Bulletin’s 2023 Best Cosmetic Surgeon in Las Cruces.
He served as the vice chief of surgery and an associate professor of surgery at MountainView Regional Medical Center from 2020 through 2021. Moreover, he headed the hospital’s trauma program from 2017 through 2019.
Although primarily conducting surgeries in his own facility, Dr. Stampp has general and cosmetic surgery privileges at MountainView Regional Medical Center for patients needing an elevated level of care. He underlines, “Safety comes first, and we consider price points after the safety goals have been met.” Dr. Stampp’s medical practice also includes Organ Peak Surgery, a center dedicated to general surgical services.
Outside the surgical environment, Dr. Stampp has made a name for himself as a talented and published photographer, exhibiting his artwork through five seasons of New York Fashion Week Runways and renowned celebrity collections. His artistic sense and profound appreciation for aesthetics are instrumental in his accomplishments as a cosmetic surgeon for the residents of Las Cruces, Albuquerque, and nearby regions.
