Misha Injector in Columbia, MO

Hi, I’m Misha, I am a physician assistant specializing in plastic surgery including injectables.


About Misha


I’m originally from central Illinois but have been living in central Missouri since 2014. I attended Saint Louis University for my undergraduate education and graduated with a degree in Investigative and Medical Sciences. After graduation, I relocated to New York City where I obtained my Masters in Physician Assistant Studies. I was employed at the Cleveland Clinic in plastic surgery for a few years before relocating back to the midwest where I transitioned into dermatology for the past several years. I am excited to return to the field of plastic surgery as I am passionate about helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals and build their confidence!
