Jesse Smith, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Meet Dr. Smith

Dr. Jesse Smith earned his undergraduate degree from Baylor University before attending medical school at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Upon completing his internship in general surgery, he was accepted into the residency program at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center where he specialized in otolaryngology. It was at this point in his career that Dr. Smith was accepted into a highly sought-after fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at UCLA. During this time, he was able to learn and gain experience in the most cutting-edge techniques relating to rhinoplasty, facial reconstruction, and other forms of cosmetic surgery. In 2005, Dr. Smith became an assistant clinic professor at UT Southwestern Medical Center, and shortly thereafter, he became the assistant director of the only fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery in the entire DFW area. In addition to cosmetic surgery, Dr. Smith is also experienced in nonsurgical alternatives, such as injectables and laser skin resurfacing.

Humanitarian Work

Dr. Smith is one of five regular surgeons working with the Children's Rehabilitation Institute and Surgery Program (CRISP) and Futuro de Nicaragua to treat children and adults with facial deformities. Twice annually, Dr. Smith and the rest of his team of volunteers make the journey to Nicaragua in an effort to improve the lives of these families in need of medical care. During this time, he also works to train the local surgeons to help them better care for their fellow Nicaraguans. In total, these organizations have performed over 1,400 surgeries, all of which were completely free for the patients.
