What sets a facial plastic surgery specialist apart from others? In Nashville, women and men considering facial plastic surgery have a number of choices and may find it difficult to choose which surgeon is right for them. At Youthful Reflections, Dr. Michael A. Boggess established his reputation as one of the best facial plastic surgeons in the Nashville, TN, area through years of producing amazing results.

Word-of-mouth is an important aspect when you’re looking for a facial plastic surgeon, but there are a number of other factors that set Dr. Boggess apart. Training, board certification, experience, accomplishments and awards, and—most importantly—patients who are overjoyed with their results are all evidence of Dr. Boggess’ position as the go-to facial plastic surgeon in Tennessee.

Just spending some time browsing the before-and-after photos of Dr. Boggess’ work removes any doubt about his talent and ability to create results that exceed patients’ expectations.

Are You Looking for a Facial Plastic Surgeon?

Let’s look more closely at what makes Dr. Boggess so well respected and trusted and what those traits mean for you:

Board Certification

Dr. Boggess is certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology. These certifications establish his expertise in evaluating the complicated and delicate anatomy of the face. As a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Boggess has logged many more years of surgical training focusing specifically on the face compared to plastic surgeons who also perform body contouring procedures.


When you combine the technical expertise of a surgeon such as Dr. Boggess with years of experience, you get something special. After more than 20 years as a facial plastic surgery specialist, Dr. Boggess has performed more than 7,000 facial rejuvenation procedures, including more than 4,000 facelifts. He’s encountered virtually every situation you might imagine, and his sense of facial harmony is second to none.

Patient Reviews

Patients who choose to post about their experiences on independent websites such as RealPatientRatings and RealSelf are valuable resources. Consider this review from February 2021 posted on RealSelf:

“After a lot of research, I decided on Dr. Boggess for my lower facelift. It is far better than I even expected!”

You’ll find dozens of similar reviews about Dr. Boggess during your research. He consistently earns 5-star reviews thanks to his calm and caring nature, expert surgical skills, and outstanding service to his patients.

Peer Recognition

It’s not just patients who appreciate Dr. Boggess’ skill. He’s earned the Top Doctor recognition from Castle Connolly, which selects the top doctors who are nominated by their peers. Dr. Boggess also has been named a Top Doctor in Nashville Lifestyles Magazine—which partners with Castle Connolly—for several consecutive years through 2021.

A Unique Approach to Facial Plastic Surgery

Dr. Boggess developed the Reflection Lift based on his years of experience, an approach that recognizes that most patients who are considering a facelift will benefit from a combination of procedures. That’s because faces tend to age in all areas uniformly, but a facelift alone only addresses the lower two-thirds of the face. The Reflection Lift is divided into 3 different levels that Dr. Boggess may recommend based on the unique needs of an individual patient.
