Here’s what makes Austin beautiful: The wide variety of human beings who call this city home. And at ATX Guides, we love our Austin beauty queens just as much as our “My wrinkles are my stripes” boho mamas in Birkenstocks.
There are a lot of reasons Austinites of all stripes might seek out plastic surgery. Maybe you’re looking for cosmetic surgery to boost your self esteem so you feel more like a beauty queen (or king). Or, maybe you’re undergoing reconstructive plastic surgery to help you recover from a trauma. In either case, you need the best possible doctor — someone you can trust with your most precious assets: your face and body.
To help you find the best plastic surgeon in Austin, we’ve compiled this list of board-certified plastic surgeons who consistently receive rave reviews from their patients. Every doctor here has at least 4.5 stars on every major patient review platform where they’re rated, including U.S. News & World Report, Healthgrades, Vitals, RealSelf, and Google.
However, this list should be used for informational purposes only. It is not intended as medical advice. Anyone considering plastic surgery should get multiple consultations and ask plenty of questions first. Always look for a plastic surgeon who specializes in the type of surgery you’re seeking, and ask your surgeon about both the surgical and non-surgical procedures that are available to you.
And without further ado …
