Plastic Surgery

Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center is at the epicenter of changes in the way cosmetic and reconstructive procedures are performed. This includes groundbreaking discoveries on how the face ages, innovations to improve healing after surgery, new reconstructive procedures for cancer patients, and many other advances in plastic surgery techniques and technology. Our work is based on a dedication to world-class patient care, research, and educating future and current plastic surgeons.

Our experts provide care to adult and pediatric patients from North Texas and all around the world. We offer access to the latest plastic surgery innovations available – making what might be considered complex for some plastic surgery centers more straightforward at UT Southwestern. Patients can rely on our team for reliable facts and information, with an intense focus on doing what’s safe and effective for each person we treat.
