Voted Top Plastic Surgeon in Dallas

“I am often asked why I pursued a career in Plastic surgery. For me, the answer is easy. From early childhood on, I always had a passion for blending art and science. Drawing, painting and sculpting were important parts of my life throughout my formative years and are still my passions today.

My early education also stimulated an interest in the sciences of anatomy, physiology, and chemistry. Combining my love of art and my passion for science led me to choose medicine as a career and Plastic Surgery was an obvious choice for me.

My North Texas practice has been built on a philosophy of caring about the whole patient – inside and out. My goal is to provide you with the most advanced treatment options available, while providing the education and information you need to alleviate concerns and add to your comfort before, during, and after your chosen procedure.

My staff shares my commitment to treating you with kindness, respect, and the best medical expertise skills and professionalism. I encourage your questions and always take the time to make sure you are comfortable with all aspects of your procedures – pre and post surgery.

I look forward to helping you feel better about your inner and outer beauty.”

– Dr. William Carpenter, M.D.
