Jesse E Smith, MD, FACS, was born in Fort Worth, Texas, moving with his parents to Joshua at the age of 3. He was reared on a small farm in Joshua, where he completed high school. He attended Baylor University in Waco, Texas for undergraduate degree in Biology.
Dr. Smith is an Assistant Fellowship Director of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Fort Worth, Texas. His private practice encompasses the entire spectrum of facial rejuvenation and reconstruction, from minimally invasive treatments to the most complex surgery — including rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, facelift, browlift, hair transplant, fat transfer, facial augmentation, wrinkle treatment, corrective surgery for facial defects, ear reshaping, microsurgery, reconstruction of cancer patients and post-traumatic deformities. He is also an expert in non-surgical facial treatments, including injectables and laser resurfacing.
Dr. Smith received his undergraduate degree from Baylor University. He began his medical education at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas where he received his MD degree. Dr. Smith completed his internship in general surgery followed by a residency and specialization in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, including Parkland Hospital System. Dr. Smith was then chosen for a highly specialized Fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery sponsored by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of California, Los Angeles. During his fellowship at UCLA, his entire experience focused on cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, head, and neck. Here, he honed his skills in the latest techniques in rhinoplasty, cosmetic surgery, and facial reconstruction including microvascular reconstruction of complex facial deformities.
Dr. Smith is Board Certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He is one of a small group of surgeons that has achieved Dual Board Certification in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as Head and Neck Surgery. He joined Texas Health Care in 2005, and and became an Assistant Clinic Professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. He also became the Assistant Fellowship Director of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery soon thereafter. He is one of the busiest facial plastic surgeons in North Texas, and is the Assistant Director of the only fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery in the Dallas and Fort Worth area.
Dr. Smith regularly lectures in a wide variety of topics in Facial Plastic and Reconstruction each year within the United States as well as internationally.
Dr. Smith is proudly involved in several humanitarian organizations. He is one of five regular surgeons serving the Children’s Rehabilitation Institute and Surgery Program (www.crispfoundation.org) and Futuro de Nicaragua. He started traveling routinely to Central America to treat children with facial deformities in 2004.
Twice a year Dr. Smith and other apt surgeons and medical personnel travel with the CRISP Foundation and Futuro de Nicaragua to Nicaragua. The goal is to help support the children and people of Nicaragua by running a week-long clinic and operating room that allows for the transformation of the lives of children and adults alike. We strive to also train Nicaraguan Plastic Surgeons while we are there, so that the country can allow its physicians and leaders to effectively treat their own people.
The CRISP Foundation and Futuro de Nicaragua have performed over 1400 surgeries; barely scratching the surface of the tens of thousands who need assistance.
We also provide additional medical care and surgery for other congenital anomalies and/or correctable injuries. All surgeries and medical care are free of charge to the people of Nicaragua.
