Since beginning private practice in Virginia Beach, Dr. Hubbard's emphasis has been on cosmetic surgery. He focuses on the individual concerns of each patient to give a more personalized result.

Dr. Hubbard graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Notre Dame. There he was also an elected member of Phi Beta Kappa and received the Baldinger Award for scholastic excellence that recognizes the top two graduating pre-medical students.

He graduated with honors from one of the top three ranked medical schools in the United States, Washington University School of Medicine. There, he was elected membership to Alpha Omega Alpha, the medical honor society that comprises the top ten percent of medical students.

Dr Hubbard later completed two residencies in complimentary specialties: Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology. Otolaryngology was a five year surgery program at Washington University in St. Louis. This entailed extensive surgical experience with all layers of delicate facial and neck anatomy. His Plastic Surgery residency consisted of three more years of surgical training at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago. This culminated with a year of Chief Residency at Loyola University and Cook County Hospital. His double board certification shows a love and commitment to surgery and an extreme level of comfort with the procedures he performs.

Dr. Hubbard then further pursued his interest in cosmetic surgery with a year of cosmetic plastic surgery fellowships. This was at renowned national and international institutions including Eastern Virginia Medical School and Wexham Park Hospital outside London, England.

Dr. Hubbard is noted for his volunteer work in third world countries. This began with two months in an East Africa medical clinic in 1983. Since then he has participated in volunteer reconstructive surgery trips to South America, Central America, the Philippines, Central Asia and the Caribbean with Christian Medical Society, Operation Blessing and Operation Smile. In 1994 he founded the non-profit organization Medical Supply Rescue and Recycle (MSSR) which collects excess surgical supplies and used equipment from area hospitals to send to Africa and Central and South America. In 1998, the US Ambassador recognized him for donating supplies to the country of Sierra Leon in West Africa. In 2002, with funding directly from Hubbard Plastic Surgery, MSRR began purchasing new surgical instruments to send to surgeons in developing countries.

Dr. Hubbard and his wife Suzanne live in Virginia Beach with their two children, Nick and Natalie.
