What inspired you to become a plastic surgeon?
As a medical student, I started doing wound healing and research at the Shriners Hospital. This led to an exposure to not only burn reconstruction, but also craniofacial surgery like cleft lip and palate repair. My introduction to aesthetic surgery was in Dallas during my fellowship at UT Southwestern. I became enamored with the creativity and artistic component to cosmetic procedures. The quest to perform perfect surgery is my daily challenge.
What are the most popular procedures (surgical and non-surgical) that your patients are asking for right now?
Combination procedures such as tummy tuck with liposuction coupled with breast augmentation with a lift are becoming the norm. Since anesthesia is so much safer now, we are able to do these longer cases and improve multiple areas. This result is a much more balanced and harmonious result.
Our facial and vaginal rejuvenation laser therapy provide remarkable results with minimal downtime. The OH-Shot! and implementation of PRP (platelet rich plasma) has definitely been worthwhile to our patients.
How do you envision aesthetics changing in the next 10-15 years?
I think people will be doing things at a younger age. People will start thinking about face lifts and eyelid procedures in their 50s while competing in the work place. The advantage is that the skin and underlying structures are better and so outcomes are better and longer lasting. There will less of the “overdone” look. Botox and other fillers will also likely become more popular in younger age patients to act as a preemptive strike on aging.

“Exceptional Surgeon – Austin, TX – I had a botched breast augmentation that left me disfigured and in constant pain. I was told by countless other surgeons that I would have to wait another year, or that any further surgery would still disappoint me because there would never be a good outcome due to the damage from the previous surgeon. I became withdrawn and depressed. Just when I was about to give up and accept my fate, someone recommended another doctor.Dr. Haydon made me feel instantly comfortable, assured me that he could fix me, and listened carefully to my requests. After the surgery I had minimal bruising and pain, and my breasts looked far better than I could have imagined. The scars are invisible and you would never know I had a botched surgery before. Dr. Haydon seriously changed my life and I cannot recommend him enough.”
