Lori L. Cherup, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Advanced Skin Care



I have had both a tummy tuck and a back lift surgery at Radiance.  Everything went just as I was told it would. Every one was friendly, caring and knowledgeable. I felt very safe and comfortable, as though I was in the hands of very good friends.  I would recommend Dr. Cherup and her staff in a minute, and as a matter of fact, I HAVE!!!

From Around the Web:


“My experience with Lori Cherup and her staff was excellent. Dr. Cherup did a wonderful job with my breast reduction. The staff is friendly and kind. The office has a welcoming feel to it. Dr. Cherup’s staff worked with my insurance and quickly got my procedure approved. Everything was explained to me so I knew exactly what was going to happen. The results are amazing. My back no longer aches constantly. I sleep better at night and have stopped snoring. My new breasts look amazing!”

“I had an amazing experience with Dr.Cherup. She listened to exactly what I wanted and treated me with kindness and respect. I felt completely comfortable from the first consultation. I will never regret my choice to go to Radiance.”

“I cannot say enough amazing things about Dr Cherup. I have had 10 years of hell from having bilateral mastectomies and horrible reconstruction that left me open with wound to be packed for years. I saw countless plastic surgeons and supposedly the best at UPMC whom were not able to do anything to help close the wounds so I become depressed and hopeless and gave up any hope of ever having my wounds closed. I had a horrible body image. I decided to give it one more try and went to see Dr Cherup 2 years ago and with 1 surgery she closed the wounds to my breast flaps and they never reopened. ….Dr Cherup is a true artist with an amazing eye and ability to create a body I could only dream of. ….I truly love this woman and will always have a special spot in my heart for her as she gave me back my sense of being a woman. If I call with questions she calls me back personally. Thank you Dr Cherup. I love you-you are amazing and talented and kind.”


“Dr. Cherup was very informative and straight forward with her answers regarding my wants, wishes and desires. I was well taken care of at each appointment and on my surgery day. When the issue arose during my surgery of the left silicone gel implant not being the size we anticipated, she did what she needed to do to make the surgery go as needed and even offered to replace the saline one free of cost if it wasn’t to my liking. I was very gracious to hear that and look forward to seeing the 6/8 week results!”

“Dr. Cherup and her entire staff made me feel comfortable and safe through their professionalism and confidence in their work. We spoke about my wants and desires for what I wanted after surgery and why. We chose the best course of action for me, together. Dr. Cherup listened to me and heard nervousness in my voice about being under anesthesia, and to ease that, she ordered an extra test to ease my mind and talked me through the entire process. I had a pleasant experience on the day of surgery with everyone on the team. I am thrilled with my results and have been sharing my positive experience with everyone I know. I couldn’t be more pleased with the decision to get this surgery done, but even more so that I chose the best Surgeon and team to preform it.”

“Dr. Cherup was very reassuring on my surgery and is still this way as i recover. My recovery is a little slower than I would like, but she has eased my nervousness about it all. Her attitude towards my recovery is so positive that if I choose to do any more, she will be the only person I go to.”

Solve the equation below please:


Dr. Cherup is the medical director for Invisible Ink
Laser Tattoo Removal

Unlike older lasers which deliver heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue, the newly FDA approved PicoSure laser uses PressureWave Technology to shatter the ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body. The result is clearer skin after fewer treatments without injuring the surrounding skin. It also allows for the removal of stubborn blue and green inks as well as previously-treated, difficult tattoos.
